As it happens Jupiter is about as large in diameter as any planet can be. Adding more mass to Jupiter would compress its gases more without increasing its diameter very much up to the point when fusion could be sustained at the core. When that happens a dwarf star will balloon out to a much larger size though still tiny compared to our Sun.

A correction: I was figuring that heating due to fusion at the core likely would dramatically increase the size of a dwarf star even one at the edge of fusion like TRAPPIST-1, but those folks studying that system have an estimate that the diameter of that star is slightly larger than that of Jupiter.

Kelly Cuoco from Big Bang Theory has facial expressions that are so remindful of her Dad William Shatner from back in the Star Trek original series days. (I only just recently learned she was his child). I suppose mostly maybe "A Piece of The Action" sitcom-stylings.

she'd rather look at an endlessly-looped image of herself than do her wifely duty in the bedroom? outrageous!

uhhh...dang. Thanks. I took the word of relative-by-marriage.

But, Kelly Cuoco sure does have eerie similarities.

Yes, with her looks it is plausible seeming that she could be Shatner's daughters, right age range as well.

Just FYI: the SETI program has already scanned TRAPPIST-1 but did not detect anything (yet). It did so following a May 2016 preliminary report that said that the system had at least 3 planets.
