Tom Morga and Frakes

Morga and Jonathan Frakes

Thomas "Tom" A. Morga is a stuntman, stunt actor, and stunt coordinator who holds the record for being the most seen stuntman in Star Trek. Between 1979 and 2005 he appeared in six feature films and all four spin-off television series, doubled main actors and guest actors, and played almost every major race.

Morga also served as assistant stunt coordinator to Dennis Madalone on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager for fourteen years. This position included fight choreographies for episodes such as "Blood Oath" and the creating of props such as the blade weapons in "Battle Lines". For the majority of his appearances he received no on-screen credits.

Outside of Star Trek, Morga has worked on numerous other films, including Ghost Busters, Alien Nation, Army of Darkness, The Shawshank Redemption, Independence Day, Spider-Man, and all three Pirates of the Caribbean films. His television credits have thus far included Scarecrow and Mrs. King, NYPD Blue, Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Seinfeld. Throughout his career, he has doubled such actors as Bruce Boxleitner, Jeff Goldblum, David Hasselhoff, John Travolta, and Star Trek Nemesis' Ron Perlman.
