Adam Dean Buckner (born 18 September 1964; age 51) was a visual effects coordinator and visual effects supervisor on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He also worked on Star Trek: Enterprise as a visual effects coordinator.

He was nominated for two Emmy Awards for his work on Star Trek. His first was for Deep Space Nine's series finale. The second was for the Enterprise episode, "Breaking the Ice". He did win the 1998 International Monitor Awards for DS9: "Call to Arms" which he shared with David Stipes, Dan Curry, Steve Fong, Kevin Bouchez, Davy Nethercutt, and Don Greenberg. During his tenure on Deep Space Nine, Buckner lent a hand in constructing the various kit-bash models for use in "A Time to Stand", and was responsible for the construction of the Centaur-type model, as well as two that were not featured in the episode, the USS Jupp and the USS Bradford.

Buckner has also worked on other popular science fiction and fantasy television shows including Babylon 5, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess and Andromeda.

His motion picture credits include The Specials, Dungeons and Dragons, Come l'America, The Impossible Elephant, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Mee-Shee: The Water Giant.

Buckner left the franchise halfway through the first season of Enterprise, and around 2003, moved to London, UK where he continued to work as an independent contractor in very much the same capacity for the European motion picture industry, also working on television productions and commercials.
