Rancher a rancher

Gregg Palmer (25 January 192731 October 2015; age 88), played an uncredited rancher in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode "Spectre of the Gun". He filmed his scene on Tuesday 21 May 1968 and Wednesday 22 May 1968 (reshooting the scene filmed the previous day) at Desilu Stage 10.

Between 1950 and 1982, Palmer (birth name Palmer Lee) had roles in various TV programs such as The Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke (twenty episodes), Bonanza (five episodes), Rawhide, Tarzan (three episodes), Mission: Impossible, Jason King, Alias Smith and Jones, and Quincy, M.E. His film roles include Chisum, The McKenzie Break, and The Shootist.

He was long thought to be an actor of the same name who worked in Doctor Who, but this was thoroughly debunked in the 2013 DVD release of The Tenth Planet.

Palmer passed away on 31 October 2015, in Encino, California. His wife, Ruth Palmer died in 1999. He attended the Golden Boot Awards but did not win the award himself.
