(written from a Production point of view) Gorkon's soldier a dead Klingon

Gary Alan Pike (born 31 July), also credited as Gary T. Pike, is a stuntman, stunt actor, and stunt coordinator who performed stunts as two different Klingons in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. He first portrayed Chancellor Gorkon's soldier and was later seen as a dead Klingon in a corridor scene.

Between 1967 and 1981, Pike was a member of the music trio "The Lettermen", a group which previously featured his older brother Jim and later his younger brother Donny. Pike reunited with the group in 2003 for a few events. Together with "The Lettermen" he performed several hits such as "Put Your Head on My Shoulder" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". He married his first wife, Sharon in 1968, and traveled with her through the country. Pike later became a semi-regular member of the music groups "The Four Preps" and "Reunion" (the latter one since 1999), both beside his older brother. His wife passed away in 2004.

Pike has performed stunts in films such as Go Tell the Spartans (1978, with Craig Wasson and David Clennon), Invasion U.S.A. (1985, with Richard Lynch, Chuck Courtney, and B.J. Davis), Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1987), Halloween 5 (1989, with Steven Anderson and George Wilbur), Sidekicks (1992, with Joe Piscopo and Julia Nickson), Viper (1994, with Cole McKay), Independence Day (1996, with Brent Spiner and stunts by Patricia Tallman and Tom Morga), Office Space and Arlington Road (both 1999), Clint Eastwood's Space Cowboys (2000, with James Cromwell and Barbara Babcock, and stunts by Paul Sklar and Jim Wilkey), Ocean's Eleven (2001), Cheaper By the Dozen (2003), and television series such as Walker, Texas Ranger (1996-1999, with Noble Willingham) and The Lyon's Den (2003, with Robert Picardo, Charlie Brewer, and Denney Pierce).

He also served as stunt coordinator for productions, including Back to the Beach (1987, with Tommy Hinkley and David Bowe), River of Death (1989), and Night Eyes II (1992, with Tim Russ, Richard Chaves, and stunts by Rick Avery, Gary Baxley, B.J. Davis, Cole McKay, and Jimmy Ortega).

Pike resides in California alongside his second wife Becky (since 2005) and his three children.
