James Lee Stanley (born 30 April 1946; age 75) is an American singer, musician, songwriter, and actor who was a regular extra on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager for five years. Beside playing a regular Bajoran security deputy, he appeared as various Klingons, Romulans, Vulcans, Bajoran civilians, Cardassians and other unnamed aliens. As an extra, he received no on-screen credits for his appearances.

In 2016, Stanley commented: "I was on the show for five and half years, and I did every kind of alien you can imagine. I've got some fun stories for the stage about my experiences. You will have to come to the concert to hear them. But in a nutshell, the memories are spectacular: Playing chess in the replicator lounge with Quark; wrestling with some uppity Klingons that Odo and I were trying to subdue; sitting in the makeup chair for four hours to become a Klingon. And by the way, if you ever heard a Klingon singing, that was me. The singing Klingon – more about that stuff at the concert". [1]

Besides his work on Star Trek, Stanley worked as background actor on the drama They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969, with Michael Sarrazin and Ian Abercrombie) and was the stand-in for Christopher Lloyd on the science fiction comedy My Favorite Martian (1999, with Ray Walston, Wallace Shawn, Lorin McCraley, Ken Thorley, Michael Bailey Smith, Beau Billingslea, and fellow stand-in Marshal Silverman).
