Sean David Kenney (born March 13, 1944) is an American actor best known for his role in Star Trek as the physically disabled Christopher Pike in "The Menagerie" (the healthy Pike was played by Jeffrey Hunter), and as Lieutenant DePaul in "Arena" and "A Taste of Armageddon."[1]

After his roles on Star Trek and a few other small parts, including his first bit part in The Impossible Years (1968), Kenney had leading roles in several films including How's Your Love Life? (1971) and the cult horror film The Corpse Grinders (1971), and Slumber Party '57 (1976), which is his final film to date.[2]

In 1980, Kenney became a professional photographer, mainly focusing on promotional photographic work.[3]
