GorgonGorgon - A malevolent, pock-faced being who deceived a band of Earth children in assisting him with his plans of interplanetary conquest on the episode "And the Children Shall Lead" on the sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69. When a select crew of the USS Enterprise beamed down to the surface of the planet Triacus to visit with a settlement of Earth colonists, they found instead the dead remains of the adult population. Only the children had survived and they were under the spell of Gorgan (Melvin Belli).

Using illusions and mind control techniques Gorgan disguised as the "Friendly Angel" convinced the children they must gain control of the orbiting starship. However, the children were released from his deadly influence when they were shown video tapes of themselves playing with their parents, who were killed via Gorgan's powers. With their recognition of his evil, the power and the form of this horrible monster faded away.
