Horned alien

This humanoid species had blue, scaly skin and horns of varying size protruding all over their heads. One of these aliens was imprisoned by the Klingons at Rura Penthe in 2293 and got into a fight with Captain James Kirk. When Kirk was able to incapacitate the alien with a kick to both knees, Martia pointed out "not everyone keeps their genitals in the same place." As a gesture of truce, Kirk tells Bones to help the creature recover so there won't be any lingering hard feelings. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The member of this species that Kirk encountered on Rura Pentha had obvious tissue damage to the right side of it's face, making the flesh there appear red in color. Additionally, the horns and other scaly growths also appeared damaged. When Kirk delivered the kick to the creature's genitalia, the creature's blue skin appeared to glow slightly in some sort of painful and emotional response to the blow.

The horned alien was uncredited played by Dennis Ott. His scene was cut from the version aired for TV.

Klingon interrogator

The Klingon interrogator

The individuals present at the Klingon prison where, in Star Trek VI, Kirk and McCoy are detained were originally to have included some characters they had met previously, in Star Trek: The Original Series and the first five Star Trek films. (The Making of the Trek Films, p. 106)

In deleted scenes from Star Trek, Klingons captured the Narada after the USS Kelvin crashed into it and imprisoned Nero for the next twenty-five years. These Klingon guards wore helmets and thick coats, which costume designer Michael Kaplan respectively modeled on a horseshoe crab and elephant and rhino skin. J. J. Abrams said the masks allowed them to avoid selecting Klingons that did or did not have the augment virus. According to him and the producers on the audio commentary for the deleted scenes, the Klingons come up to Nero in large numbers and throw him a chain to cuff himself because they're actually scared of him.

The Klingons in the deleted scenes were portrayed by Victor Garber, who played the interrogator, stuntman T.J. Storm, and background actors Terryl Daluz, Brandon Stacy, Scott Trimble, and James D. Weston II.

The deleted scene also included many extras, including creatures that were homages to the Gorn and the M-113 creature.
