Michael Ray Rhodes (born 11 July 1945; age 70) is a Hollywood television director. He directed the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Angel One".

Rhodes has directed for several other TV series, including Fame (a series which featured Graham Jarvis, Dick Miller, Eric Pierpoint, and Madlyn Rhue as regulars at one time or another), China Beach (starring Robert Picardo, Megan Gallagher, Jeff Kober, and Concetta Tomei), and Beverly Hills, 90210. He also directed episodes of the short-lived series This Is the Life, starring Next Generation actor Jonathan Frakes as well as Henry Darrow, Nehemiah Persoff, Brock Peters, Joan Pringle, and Andrew Robinson, and A Year in the Life, a series starring Richard Kiley and Diana Muldaur.

However, the majority of his credits have been made-for-TV movies. These include The Fourth Wise Man (1985), In the Best Interest of the Children (1992, starring Gary Graham), Heidi (1993, starring Noley Thornton in the title role), Christy (1994), Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story (1996, featuring Brian Keith), and Co-ed Call Girl (1996, starring Star Trek: Voyager's Jeri Ryan and featuring Herta Ware and Dell Yount).

According to Wil Wheaton, Rhodes had severe arguments with the rest of the cast while filming "Angel One". Probably this is the reason why he was never asked to direct any more episodes of Star Trek.[1]
