Michael John Kells Fleetwood (born 24 June 1947; age 73) is the drummer of the musical group Fleetwood Mac. He appeared in a cameo part as an Antedian dignitary under heavy prosthetics in the Star Trek: The Next Generation second season episode "Manhunt". He filmed his scenes on Wednesday 5 April 1989 and Thursday 6 April 1989 at Paramount Stage 9. Fleetwood's most recognizable and famous feature is his beard, which he shaved off for his role of a fish-like alien delegate who was intent on blowing up the summit meeting to which the USS Enterprise-D was taking him.

Mick Fleetwood made his acting debut in the 1987 science fiction movie The Running Man as Mic, the leader of an underground resistance movement. He spoke the memorable line, "Mr. Spock, you have the conn." (The response was: "Who's 'Mr. Spock'?") Fleetwood worked in this film with Wayne Grace and Dey Young. He waited nearly a decade before working in film again, when he was cast in 1994's Zero Tolerance with Titus Welliver. Fleetwood took a somewhat comedic turn in 1997's Snide & Prejudice which included Star Trek: Deep Space Nine stars Rene Auberjonois and Armin Shimerman as well as Jeffrey Combs. He rejoined Auberjonois in the 2001 release Burning Down the House with John Savage. Fleetwood's only television appearance outside of Trek was a guest role on the drama series Wiseguy starring Jonathan Banks in the episode "And It Comes Out Here" airing in the same year as Fleetwood's Trek work.

Fleetwood married Jenny Boyd and had a pair of daughters. In 2006, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Fleetwood and his family currently reside in Los Angeles, California.
