In 1963 Lockwood was cast opposite Elvis in It Happened at the World’s Fair as his good friend Danny Burke In 1964, he then scored the leading role as a young U.S. Marine lieutenant in the NBC series, The Lieutenant (1963), which was produced by Star Trek (1966) creator, Gene Roddenberry. Roddenberry would then cast Lockwood again in the second Star Trek (1966) pilot, Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before (1966), as “Lt. Cmdr. Gary Mitchell”.
