Blaisdel Makee (15 November 1931 – 21 February 1988; age 56), also known as Makee K. Blaisdell (among many other forms of the name), was a Hawaiian actor who appeared twice on Star Trek: The Original Series.
He had numerous small appearances in television shows throughout the 1960s and '70s, including Mission: Impossible, Hawaiian Eye, and The Big Valley. In the 1970s, Makee appeared in the lurid exploitation film The Manson Murders, which also had Sean Kenney in the cast list. He starred as the title character in Johnny Lingo, a short made by Brigham Young University, which has since become a cult favorite in Mormon cinema.
