Gary Graham (born 7 June 1950; age 63) has played two roles on Star Trek: the Ocampa Tanis in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Cold Fire", and (more prominently) Vulcan ambassador Soval on Star Trek: Enterprise. He was once considered for the roles of both Benjamin Sisko and Captain Janeway before the decision was made for Janeway to be female and for Sisko to be an African-American.
Beyond the realm of Star Trek, he is probably best known for playing Matt Sikes in the short-lived television series Alien Nation and several subsequent TV movies along with Eric Pierpoint, Michele Scarabelli, Ron Fassler, Tiny Ron, Kerrie Keane, and Wayne Péré.
Graham also had a recurring role on the short-lived television series M.A.N.T.I.S., three episodes of which were directed by Cliff Bole. "Gary is a great actor," Bole later stated. (The Official Star Trek: Voyager Magazine, issue #15)
In 2007, Graham was set to star alongside John Billingsley in a planned zombie series, entitled Alive, which featured Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, and Denise and Michael Okuda in the creative staff. However, the series was scrapped.
