Michael "Mike" Papajohn (born 7 November 1964; age 56) is a stuntman and stunt actor who performed stunts in several episodes of Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise and in Star Trek Generations. His costume from the second season episode "Judgment" was later sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]

For the VOY third season episode "Warlord", Papajohn filmed his scene on Wednesday 4 September 1996 on Paramount Stage 16.

Papajohn was a professional baseball player before he turned into a stuntman. He is perhaps well known for his role of the carjacker Dennis Carradine, who was involved in the murder of Peter Parker's uncle in the comic adaptation Spider-Man (2002) and the sequel Spider-Man 3 (2007).
