Robert "Bob" Herron (born 23 September 1924; age 91) is a Hollywood stuntman and actor. He appeared, uncredited, as an Enterprise crewmember named Sam in TOS: "Charlie X". He would later play the Excalbian recreation of the legendary Kahless the Unforgettable in TOS: "The Savage Curtain".

As an actor, Herron had small roles in a number of films, including Gun Fury (1953), Movie Movie (1978), and City Heat (1984). He also appeared in Stanley Kramer's The Domino Principle (1977), which also featured actress Majel Barrett (Christine Chapel on TOS and Lwaxana Troi on TNG and DS9).

But Herron is a stuntman first and an actor second. He has performed stunts on over 200 films and television shows, and has done so for 55 years. The films he worked on include The Ten Commandments (1956), Spartacus (1960), The Wild Bunch (1969), Shaft (1971), Rocky (1976), Poltergeist (1982), The Untouchables (1987), and L.A. Confidential (1997) -- just to name a few!

His television work includes The Green Hornet, The Streets of San Francisco, and The Rockford Files. He also served as a stunt double for Jeffrey Hunter in the first Star Trek pilot, "The Cage".

Unfortunately, he received no on-screen credit for much of his work.
