Rick Worthy (born March 12, 1967) is an actor and Star Trek veteran, having played several alien and one human role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. In the Re-imagined Series, he portrays the Humanoid Cylon Simon/Number Four.
A native of Michigan's Detroit/Southfield area, Worthy studied Tae Kwon Do at a young age. Graduating from Southfield Senior High School in 1985 and from University of Michigan in 1990, he became a stage actor in Detroit, later moving to Chicago, Illinois to develop his theatre background. Later, he moved to Los Angeles, California to further his film and television work.
Among his many television credits, Worthy also had a supporting role in the Star Trek film, Star Trek: Insurrection, starring the cast of the TV series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. This makes Worthy among one of the very few supporting actors to have worked in Star Trek theatrical releases as well as with every Star Trek series cast except the cast of the Original Series.
Worthy also had a role in a short-lived 2005 private-eye drama on CBS, Eyes. Worthy has also guest-starred in "The Warrior", an episode of Stargate SG-1, where he made use of his Tae Kwon Do and stunt fighting skills, the latter of which were obtained from his previous work on The Magnificent Seven television series.
- The Deep Space Nine episode Worthy starred in, "Soldiers of the Empire", was written by Ronald D. Moore.
