Actor Robert Hooks (born 18 April 1937; age 79) played Fleet Admiral Harry Morrow in the 1984 film Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

While Star Trek: The Original Series was in production, Hooks was a cast member on the television series N.Y.P.D., which lasted from 1967 through 1969. In 1999, he had a role on the HBO series The Hoop Life, starring DS9 actor Cirroc Lofton.

Hooks starred in a string of made-for-TV movies throughout the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. These include Carter's Army (1970, with Susan Oliver), Two for the Money (1972, with Stephen Brooks and Skip Homeier), To Kill a Cop (1978, with Diana Muldaur), A Woman Called Moses (1978, with Star Trek III co-star James B. Sikking), Madame X (1981, with Tony Plana and Ray Wise), Words by Heart (1985, with Alfre Woodard, Appearances (1990, with recurring Star Trek: Deep Space Nine actors Casey Biggs and Andrew Robinson), and Abandoned and Deceived (1995, with Bibi Besch and Patti Yasutake).

Hooks worked with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek: The Next Generation guest actor Paul Winfield on several projects, beginning with the 1972 "blaxploitation" film Trouble Man, in which Hooks had the lead role. This was followed by the 1979 TV mini-series Backstairs at the White House, which also featured Winfield's Wrath of Khan co-star Bibi Besch, as well as Noble Willingham and Bill Quinn. Hooks, Winfield, and Besch would also co-star with each other in the 1981 made-for-television movie The Sophisticated Gents, featuring Bernie Casey and Alfre Woodard. And in 1982, Hooks and Winfield co-starred together in the TV movie Sister, Sister.

Hooks appeared in several films directed by his son, Kevin, including 1992's Passenger 57 and 1996's Fled. His other motion picture credits include Airport '77 (1977, with Michael Pataki) and Posse (1993, with Salli Elise Richardson).
