Ken Lynch (July 15, 1910—February 13, 1990) was the actor who portrayed Horning in the Original Series episode "Experiment in Terra" and Grover in the Galactica 1980 episode "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II".

Lynch's career spanned many decades in radio, film and television. From 1949 to 1954 he was the star of the Dumont network television series The Plainclothesman in which the conceit of the show was that his face was never seen on camera, and he appeared from a "point of view" perspective. This led to him playing police detectives in many other productions including a recurring role on Glen Larson's McCloud as Sergeant Grover (the same name as his character in his Galactica 1980 appearance in what was undoubtedly an inside-joke.)

On the original Star Trek he played Chief Vandenberg in the episode "The Devil In The Dark."

Lynch died at age 79 from a virus on February 13, 1990, in Burbank, California.
