Brock Peters as Lance Cartwright

Lance Cartwright was a Starfleet Officer serving during the 24th century.

He succeeded Harold Morrow as Starfleet's Commander in Chief in November of 2285.

Towards the end of his ten-year term, the Federation was looking as if it would make peace with the Klingon Empire.  He was opposed to the idea and worked with several other high ranking officers to ensure it would never happen.

After his involvement in the assassination of Klingon Chancellor Gorkon and an attempt of UFP President Ra-ghoratreii in 2293, he was arrested and sent to a high-security Starfleet stockade. 

He died five years late of a respiratory infection, though many doubted the story.
