Sean Kenney is best known for this role in Star Trek as the crippled Christopher Pike (the healthy Pike was played by Jeffrey Hunter), and as Lieutenant DePaul in "Arena" and “A Taste of Armageddon”.
After his roles on Star Trek and a few other small parts, including his first bit part in “The Impossible Years”(1968), Kenney featured in several films beginning with “How’s Your Love Life”(1971), “The Corpse Grinders” (1972), “Terminal Island” (1973), and continuing until “Slumber Party ’57” (1976), which is his final film to date.
