Gary Seven was a Human male whose ancestors were abducted from Earth around 4000 BC. He held the position of Class One Supervisor, known as Supervisor 194. He was grown and conditioned in some way which allowed him to have a completely healthy and flawless body; furthermore he was insensitive to the impact of the Vulcan nerve pinch.

He was sent to Earth in 1968 to discover why his superiors lost contact with Agent 201 and Agent 347. When he discovered they were killed in an automobile accident, he assumed their mission.

Using advanced alien technology, including the Beta 5 computer hidden in his office in Apartment 12B at 811 East 68th Street in New York City, he continued the dead agents' mission to make sure mankind did not destroy itself with nuclear weapons.

When his transporter beam was intercepted by the USS Enterprise, it appeared that the Enterprise crew would prevent him from stopping the upcoming launch of a nuclear missile. His efforts were eventually successful. Seven used the Beta 5 exceiver circuits to cause the third stage of the American rocket to malfunction. It veered off course and the warhead exploded 104 miles above ground. This caused the nuclear powers to re-assess the risks of an orbiting nuclear platform.

He remained behind on Earth to carry out other missions with his assistants: Roberta Lincoln, a Human female from Earth of that time period to whom he accidentally described his mission, and Isis, his mysterious cat. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")

Gary Seven was played by actor Robert Lansing. He was intended to be the lead role of an unproduced spin-off of Star Trek, with "Assignment: Earth" acting as a pilot.
In the Eugenics Wars series of novels, Seven continues his mission to prevent global war – this time, keeping the superhumans like Khan from destroying the world in their mad bid for dominance.
He also appeared in the novel Assignment: Eternity along with Roberta Lincoln, the short story "The Aliens Are Coming!" from Strange New Worlds III, the short story "Seven and Seven" in Strange New Worlds VI, the short story "Assignment: One" in Strange New Worlds VIII, and the short story "Rocket Man" in Strange New Worlds 9. Gary Seven was no stranger to Star Trek comics, appearing in four issues from DC Comics, "The Peacekeeper Part One", "The Peacekeeper Part Two: The Conclusion", "Split Infinities", and "Future Imperiled". He was most recently seen in the IDW Publishing series Star Trek: Assignment Earth, written and drawn by John Byrne.
