Prehistory and first pilot film
Captain Christopher Pike
Christopher Pike was the former captain of the Enterprise . He was portrayed in the pilot film The Cage by Jeffrey Hunter . Christopher Pike was later promoted to Fleet Captain - a very rare rank. Unlike the future captain of the Enterprise, James T. Kirk , Pike has a cool, rational manner.
The pilot episode was not broadcast in its original form during the first run of the series, as it seemed too demanding for those in charge of the television station. So there was a complete reshuffle of the crew and the focus on a more understandable, action-packed variant that was accepted by the broadcaster. The only character carried over from the pilot was Lieutenant Spock. Later in the series, the pilot with the old crew was included in the double episode Talos IV - Tabu . Here Fleet Captain Pike (played by Sean Kenney ) appears as a severely burned, completely paralyzed man who can only communicate through a lamp on the front of his "wheelchair". This condition goes back to an accident in which Fleet Captain Pike rescued cadets from a training ship. After the series achieved cult status, the pilot episode was also broadcast (also on German television).
In the movie Star Trek (2009) the role of Bruce Greenwood is portrayed; Pike is initially in command of the newly commissioned Enterprise. As a result of the torture by Nero, Pike is temporarily dependent on a wheelchair at the end of the film, even in this timeline, is promoted to admiral and replaced as captain by James T. Kirk. Since the film is based on an alternative timeline, this development of the character cannot be reconciled with the original TV series. In the movie Star Trek: Into Darkness, on the alternate timeline, Pike is murdered by the insurgent Khan at a conference.
In Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Short Treks , Pike is played by Anson Mount .
Number one / Una
Number One is the female first officer aboard the Enterprise. She has the rank of lieutenant, but is also the most experienced officer on board. She is considered overly intelligent, extremely logical, and aloof.
Contrary to what was customary later, the captain does not remain on the ship during the foreign missions, but the rules stipulate that the most experienced officer must remain on board. This rule is clearly giving number one a headache and it is not possible for her to land with Captain Pike on Talos IV in order to prevent him from being captured.
Her full name is unknown. In The Cage and Star Trek: Discovery , she was only addressed as "number one". It was therefore unclear for a long time whether this was just a nickname appropriate to her position as first officer or the actual name of the character. This question has been taken up in various novels. However, these are considered "non-canon": DC Fontana's Vulcan's Glory explains that this figure actually has no name and that "number one" is the common name on her home planet for the most intelligent person of her generation. Other novels, however, mention various other real names and use “number one” as a nickname. In the "canon" television series Star Trek: Short Treks (episode 2.01) it was revealed in October 2019 that her name is Una.
Number one was played in The Cage of Majel Barrett , the future wife of Gene Roddenberry , under her maiden name Majel Leigh Hudec. When NBC officials rejected the pilot as too demanding and also demanded that characters number one and Lieutenant Spock be deleted because viewers allegedly would not get used to a female senior officer and a satanic -looking science officer, Roddenberry insisted on Spock and deleted it as Compromise figure number one. Her character traits, the excessive intelligence and the cool logic, were then ascribed to the Vulcan science officer in order to later have a strong contrast to the impulsive acting captain. Incidentally, Majel Barrett is the only actress who has starred in all six series and eleven feature films (including Star Trek XI ) of the franchise up to her death , be it as number one here, later as Christine Chapel and Lwaxana Troi , or as the voice of the various Federation on-board computers.
In Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Short Treks , number one is played by Rebecca Romijn .
Dr. Phillip Boyce
Dr. Phillip Boyce, played by John Hoyt , is the Enterprise's ship's doctor. He is much older than the captain and for him something of a fatherly friend. He helps Captain Pike when he expresses serious doubts about his ability to command a ship and command others.
In the relationship that Captain Pike has with Dr. Boyce has implied much of what later developed between Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy will develop.
Lieutenant Spock ( Leonard Nimoy ) is still the second officer and science officer in this episode (see Commander Spock ).
Lieutenant José Tyler, played by Peter Duryea , is navigator on board the Enterprise.
JM Colt, played by Laurel Goodwin , holds the rank of Yeoman ( translated as signal master in German dubbing ) and acts as Captain Pike's personal assistant. In the later series Spaceship Enterprise, Janice Rand ( Grace Lee Whitney ) takes on the same task.
Captain James Tiberius Kirk
James Tiberius Kirk, played by William Shatner (from Star Trek XI: Chris Pine ), was the captain of the spaceship Enterprise (NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-A).
Born on March 22, 2228 in Iowa on Earth as the son of a Starfleet security officer, Kirk is captain of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and thus the successor to Captain Christopher Pike . In the alternate timeline created in Star Trek (2009) , Kirk was not born on Earth in Iowa , but earlier in space, on a shuttle of the USS Kelvin. He then spends his youth in Iowa with his mother, the unloved stepfather and his brother, until he ran away from home.
Kirk worked with scientist Dr. Carol Marcus has a son named David who is murdered by Klingons in the third Star Trek movie on the Genesis planet.
From the first to the fourth Star Trek movie, he held the rank of admiral, but due to a refusal to obey, he was demoted to captain again, which was also held up against him in the sixth movie in a Klingon trial.
In the film Star Trek: Meeting of Generations , the transition of the Star Trek films from the original series ( Spaceship Enterprise ) to the next-generation crew takes place: Captains Kirk and Picard meet on Veridian III in 2371. Kirk, who traveled some 80 years into the future through the energy band Nexus , is killed while saving the planet.
Kirk's kiss with his communications officer Lieutenant Uhura in 1968 was the first black and white "lip collision" on US television and a scandal at the time - only a year earlier the still existing marriage bans for black and white couples in the southern states had been declared unconstitutional. Some broadcasters therefore refused for years to broadcast the episode in question.

(From Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan : Captain Spock ; from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Land special ambassador of the Federation and later in Starship Enterprise - The Next Century ( Reunification?, Part 1) Ambassador .)
Spock, played by Leonard Nimoy (since Star Trek (2009) played by Zachary Quinto , in Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Short Treks by Ethan Peck ), is the first and science officer on board the spaceship Enterprise. Spock was born in 2230. He is the only one who served on the Enterprise under his command during Captain Pike's time, as a second and science officer, then with the rank of lieutenant.
The character of Spock has - like many other characters later within the various Star Trek series - the task of questioning human behavior. As a half- Vulcan whose society is based purely on logic and suppresses their emotions, he always reacts logically and prudently - despite his human heritage that sometimes shines through.
Spock is the son of the Vulcan ambassador Sarek. His mother, Amanda Grayson, comes from earth (in the ZDF synchronization of the episode Reise nach Babel , in which Spock's parents appear, Amanda is called Emily for no apparent reason - this has been corrected in the Star Trek remastered version) . Spock has an older half-brother named Sybok, who was excluded from Vulcan society because he chose open feelings and against pure logic. Furthermore, Michael Burnham is Spock's older adoptive sister, she is a main character in the series Star Trek: Discovery . Burnham was adopted by Sarek and was the first person to graduate from Vulcan Science Academy. Spock's first name is not mentioned in the series. In the episode False Paradises (Season 1, Episode 25) Spock is asked for his first name. He replies that the name is too difficult for a human to pronounce. The first name in the novels is "S'chn T'gai".
Like all Vulcans, Spock has pointed ears and green blood because the oxygen carrier pigment is based on copper and not iron like humans. Since Vulcans get significantly older than humans, Spock and his father still live in the time of Starship Enterprise - The Next Century , and Spock is active in the series in a guest appearance as Vulcan ambassador in the underground on Romulus .
Characteristic of Spock is the phrase "fascinating", with which he reacts to phenomena that appear unbelievable or threatening to others - and thus emphasizes his scientific and neutral view of things. His above-average computer skills are of major importance in several episodes.
Spock's father Sarek originally planned a different future for his gifted son: Spock was to study at the Vulcan Academy of Sciences . But the latter had already decided to join Starfleet against his father's wishes and to study at the Starfleet Academy. As a result of this disagreement, Sarek and Spock did not talk to each other for 18 years. Ambassador Sarek also declares Spock a Vrekasht , an outcast. Sarek's wife and Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, disagreed with her husband's behavior, which is why she left him, but returned from Earth after a year. The relationship between Spock and his father Sarek only improves when Sarek comes to the Enterprise in his role as ambassador in the course of the Babel conference, suffers a heart attack and the operation that saved him is made possible by a blood transfusion for Spock.
Later, Spock - like his father - becomes a well-known ambassador who not only plays a decisive role in the conclusion of peace between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, but also tries to enforce a reunification between Vulcans and Romulans.
Spock can also be seen as a child or teenager in several productions. In the animated series The Enterprise , young Spock was spoken by Billy Simpson in episode 1x02 The Time Portal . In Star Trek III: In Search of Mr. Spock , Carl Steven , Vadia Potenza , Stephen Manley, and Joe W. Davis played Spock at various ages during his regeneration. In flashbacks, young Spock was played by Jacob Kogan in the 2009 film Star Trek and by Liam Hughes in Star Trek: Discovery .
Because the character of Spock was so popular and successful , when the first follow-up series was planned , Gene Roddenberry issued the directive: "No stories with Vulcans" . Roddenberry believed that new Vulcan figures would never be able to build on the great model. Later, especially after Roddenberry's death, Vulcans were reintegrated into the series, also for reasons of continuity and logic, because it would not have been understandable why one of the most important species within the Federation should withdraw completely.
The asteroid (2309) Mr. Spock was named after the discoverer's cat. After the death of his actor Leonard Nimoy of the portrait on the Canadian five-dollar bill, as is frequent remodeling of Verspocken (Engl. Spocking ) reported. Mr. Spock appeared on digital advertising displays with the statement He did .
Dr. Leonard "pill" McCoy
Dr. med. Leonard Horatio McCoy, played by DeForest Kelley ( played by Karl Urban since Star Trek (2009) ), is the chief ship's doctor on the Enterprise (NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-A). When he retires, he has the rank of admiral.
He was born in 2227. First he studied from 2245 to 2249 at the University of Mississippi, where he met Emony Dax, an early host of the Dax symbiote . He then began his medical training, which he finished in 2253. In 2266 he began his service as Chief Ship's Doctor with the rank of Lieutenant Commander on the Enterprise under the command of Captain James Tiberius Kirk , with whom he was very good friends.
McCoy is one of the main characters in the series. He is both the emotional opponent of the logical Mr. Spock and the opponent of his commander when it comes to (strategic) decisions that could hurt people, morals, duty or the feelings of thinking beings. As a doctor, he has a duty to assess whether the captain is incapacitated, and in fact McCoy is faced with this difficult decision on the show.
His central sentence in the German dubbing of the series was "He is dead, Jim!" He also loves to reply: "I am a doctor and not a ..." (you can use any other profession or object).
McCoy is a determined opponent of technology, especially when it comes to beaming he is skeptical. Nevertheless, he reacts horrified when he gets a glimpse into the medicine of the 20th century in the fourth Star Trek film (“That's the darkest Middle Ages!”). Already in the episode of the original series Reaching into History he was desperate about medicine on earth in the 1930s ("I would like to see a hospital from that time. Probably still working with needles and threads from intestines. Oh how terrible. There surgeons sew poor people together like pieces of clothing, with a needle and thread. ")
At an unspecified time, he wrote the expectant standard Werkbuch Leonard McCoy's Comparative Physiology of alien species (Engl. Leonard McCoy's Comparative Alien Physiology ), which in the year 2374 by Harry Kim is downloaded to the Voyager to make the new medical holographic Dine emergency program .
McCoy also appears in the first episode of Starship Enterprise - The Next Century : The now 137-year-old admiral visits the infirmary of the Enterprise-D and then talks to Data , who takes him to his ship in a shuttle. Also in the novels written by William Shatner that follow the events of Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century , McCoy, now over 150 years old, holds an important position: passenger and on-board doctor on Kirk's private ship Belle Rêve.
His nickname is " Bones " in the original American version , but the nickname comes from " sawbones ", an old, slang expression for a doctor - " sawbones " can literally be translated as "bone saw", an allusion to the old practice of ship doctors to simply amputate injured body parts), in the German translation "Pille", as an allusion to "Pillendreher", an unofficial term for pharmacists.
Lt. Commander Montgomery "Scotty" Scott
(from Star Trek: The Movie : Commander ; from Star Trek III: In Search of Mr. Spock : Captain ) Chief Engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, played by James Doohan (since Star Trek (2009) played by Simon Pegg ), is a technical genius. He is responsible for the functioning of the machines on board the Enterprise . Whenever something breaks, he can fix it. He always copes with Captain Kirk's time demands, which are always significantly less than his own calculations. But this is because (as he confides in Kirk and later Geordi La Forge) that he deliberately sets the required time far too high to maintain his reputation for being able to perform technical miracles.
When Captain Kirk and First Officer Spock are not aboard the Enterprise, Scotty usually takes command as the second officer. Scott is a principled man who is not afraid to refuse a direct order from a superior if he sees it as a danger to ship and crew.
In another timeline (since Star Trek (2009) ), he spent his early years in Starfleet at a remote outpost. During an early mission of the Enterprise in this very other timeline, he was the first to carry out a transport on a spaceship during a war plow using the until then still young transporter technology. However, he did not develop the theoretical background completely himself. Ambassador Spock, who has traveled through time, provides him with the basic knowledge, which is based on transporter theories later developed by Montgomery Scott himself .
Scotty wrote his PhD on The Refinement of Dilithium Crystals by Negative Centrifugation .
Montgomery Scott also appears again in a guest role in TNG . As a result of a visit from the old Enterprise , he is rescued from the transporter buffer of a spaceship that crashed on a Dyson sphere . In this way he moves 75 years into the future. When he crashed, he was on his way to retirement and held the rank of captain. Towards the end of the episode, he is given a shuttle and flies away.
But there is a small inconsistency between this episode and Star Trek VII: Meetings of the Generations : Scotty is rescued from the transporter buffer in TNG and thinks that Captain Kirk is still in command of the Enterprise. At the beginning of Star Trek VII: Meetings of the Generations (which takes place before Scott's departure into retirement), Captain Kirk is dragged into the Nexus and then found dead by those present (including Scotty). Accordingly, Scotty should know that Captain Kirk was killed in an accident.
Background information: James Doohan was missing the right middle finger. Due to the almost perfect camera work, however, this was not noticed for a long time. It was always prevented in the original series to show the right hand. Those in charge at the time said it couldn't be that someone had a physical flaw. The cameras were mostly positioned so that this hand was covered by an object. Hand doubles (for example when beaming) were also used. James Doohan lost his finger in the Second World War in the Normandy landings . Still, the hand appears for seconds in five episodes of the series. In the episode The Sleeping Tiger you can clearly see the missing finger in the 36th minute. The second episode showing Doohan's right hand is Kirk: 2 =? as he reaches for the doubled dog. In the name of the young Tiru is the third episode in which one also sees the missing of Doohan's finger when he reaches for a pen (18th minute). In the episode A Planet, Called Earth , the hand can be seen in the 3rd minute when Doohan reaches for a switch. In the episode, rays attack , the hand can be seen as he helps Lieutenant Mira Romaine up again in the 41st minute. In the fourth movie you can see the missing finger when Scott reaches for a computer mouse . In the fifth feature film, there is a scene in which Doohan can be seen with a tool in his right hand. You can see his hand even better when he eats the chips that Uhura gave him.
In the English original, Scotty speaks with a heavy Scottish accent.
Lieutenant Nyota Uhura
(from Star Trek: The Film : Lieutenant Commander ) Communications Officer Lieutenant Nyota Penda Uhura, played by Nichelle Nichols (since Star Trek (2009) played by Zoë Saldaña ), was the only woman in the core crew of the original spaceship Enterprise .
The names "Uhura", "Penda" and " Nyota " come from the African language Swahili : uhuru means "freedom", penda "love, like" and nyota "star". All Uhura's first names are controversial, as is the question of whether she even has a first name. A first name was never mentioned in any series. It is often claimed that Kirk approached her with Nyota in the fourth film. The sentence “ Can you let us hear the probe's transmission? " Was called " Nyota, let us hear the probe's transmission. ” Misunderstood. However, all scripts speak for the first variant. Nichols herself said she preferred the variant "Nyota Penda Uhura" (the first name Samara was also mentioned), but that is not considered part of the "Canon". In Star Trek XI, the young Spock Uhura uses her first name Nyota, which is the first time a first name Uhuras has been mentioned in a film.
Casting the role with African American Nichelle Nichols was still a daring decision in 1966. The television stations of the southern US states initially threatened not to broadcast the series because of this. Nichelle Nichols wanted to get out of the Star Trek series in 1966 , but Martin Luther King persuaded her to keep going. He was convinced that their television presence was very important for the self-image of black Americans. Nichelle Nichols had the first kiss between a black and a white ( Captain Kirk ) on American television as Lieutenant Uhura , which was a scandal at the time.
In Star Trek XI, Uhura seems to have a relationship with Spock, which at least through two scenes (one in the turbolift, which she stops, and the second in the transporter room, just before beaming, when she gives Spock a kiss that is more than friendship seems to express) is seen. This theme continues in Star Trek XII.
Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu
Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, played by George Takei (since Star Trek (2009) : John Cho ), is the helmsman of the Enterprise . In Star Trek IV , Sulu himself mentions San Francisco as the place of his birth. In Star Trek VI he is the captain of the USS Excelsior NCC-2000. This command is taken up again in a guest appearance in the 44th episode of Star Trek: Spaceship Voyager .
His daughter Demora will later become the helmsman on the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B, on whose maiden flight Kirk, Chekov and Scotty are also present.
Pavel Andreievich Chekov
Pavel Andreievich Chekov ( Russian Павел Андреевич Чехов ), service number 656-5827B, rank: Ensign is the navigator of the Enterprise . In Star Trek: The Film , he was promoted to Lieutenant, in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan he can already be seen as Lieutenant Commander in the role of first officer of the USS Reliant. He later served again as a navigator and security officer on the Enterprise.
Chekov doesn't appear until the second season of the series. It is possible that he was already on board the Enterprise before, because in the second film he knows the events that concern Khan Noonien Singh (episode 23). Allegedly, his acceptance into the regular crew goes back to complaints from the former Soviet Union . It was criticized that in a spaceship that supposedly represents the entire earth, not a single crew member comes from this region. According to other sources, it was just a PR gag from NBC .
Chekov speaks with a heavy Russian accent and is also known as a Russian patriot, as he often ascribes familiar things to a Russian inventor: "the Russian fairy tale of Cinderella" ( Star Trek VI ); Scotch whiskey was invented "by an old woman in Leningrad" ( original series ); the Garden of Eden is near Moscow; a cereal breeding of wheat and rye is a Russian invention.
Chekov was initially played by Walter Koenig . In the movies Star Trek , Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond , Anton Yelchin, who died in June 2016, took over the role. In the current film series, which takes place in the Kelvin timeline, according to producer JJ Abrams, out of respect for Yelchin, the character of Pavel Chekov will not be cast with a new actor in future films, but instead be dropped.
Sister Christine Chapel
Christine Chapel, played by Majel Barrett , gave up her biology degree to search for her missing fiancé in space. She became a sister in the Enterprise infirmary and developed friendships with Dr. McCoy and Uhura . She had strong feelings for the ship's first officer, Commander Spock , but they were never returned.
In Star Trek: The Movie , Chapel is a doctor. Later Chapel was on the ground in Starfleet Headquarters stationed and a commander for the coordination of rescue operations during a planetary emergency was in charge in the range, the result of an in orbit located spacecraft was initiated (see The Voyage Home ).
Janice Rand, played by Grace Lee Whitney , carried out various administrative tasks for the captain and other crew members on board the Enterprise with the rank of Yeoman . She later rose to become the transporter chief and eventually became communications officer under Captain Hikaru Sulu on board the USS Excelsior.
Janice Rand was intended to be part of the Enterprise's core crew and a source of emotional conflict due to her secret attraction to Kirk, but dropped out of the series after just 14 episodes (of which she appeared in eight). The reasons were Whitney's alcohol problems and the difficulty Janice Rand's presence posed for Captain Kirk's other romantic encounters; however, she reappeared in several of the feature films.
In the United States Navy and the US Coast Guard, the term "Yeoman" denotes the lowest rank within the rank group of the petty officer , i.e. corresponds to either a mate or a boatswain . In the ZDF episodes, "Yeoman" was translated as "Boatswain" and changed to " Sergeant " in the Sat.1 episodes .
The Enterprise (animated series)
In addition to the main characters of the first series (except Chekov), two new officer characters appear on the bridge of the Enterprise in the animated series (English: Star Trek: The Animated Series ): the three-legged and three-armed Edosian Arex, who sits in Chekov's place, and the cat-like one Caitian M'Ress, who sometimes takes a seat at Uhura's post. In the English original, Arex is voiced by James Doohan and M'Ress by Majel Barrett.
Starship Enterprise - The Next Century
Captain Jean-Luc Picard
(Since Star Trek: Picard : Admiral ret. Jean-Luc Picard )
Jean-Luc Picard, played by Patrick Stewart , is the commanding officer of the Enterprise-D and the Enterprise-E . He holds the rank of captain. Picard is portrayed as responsible and indomitable, but has been reckless and wild in his youth. This behavior changes when he is injured in a bar fight with three Nausicaans during his studies (beginning in 2323) at the Starfleet Academy with a knife in his heart and this has to be replaced by an artificial heart.
As a captain, he is widely known to be diplomatically accomplished, tactically unconventional, and extremely loyal to the crew and Starfleet Command, especially the Supreme Starfleet Directive.
He likes to drink hot Earl Gray tea , is an amateur archaeologist, foil fencer and Shakespeare connoisseur and can play the ressican flute. This musical ability was implanted in his memory by a probe containing the memory of a civilization (The Second Life) . Picard's typical sentence is "Make it so" (in the original: "Make it so"). In addition, the request "Energy!" Or in the early episodes "Accelerate!" (Original: "Engage!") For the command to go to warp speed is characteristic of him.
Jean-Luc Picard was born on July 13, 2305 in La Barre, France . His parents are Maurice and Yvette Gessard Picard. The father, a vintner who is connected to tradition , avoids modern technology wherever it is possible. He wants Jean-Luc to be his successor on the estate. That is why he does not agree with his career aspirations. His hopes that Jean-Luc will take over the vineyard rise when it fails the Starfleet test. A year later, however, he secretly repeated it. His older brother Robert then takes over the property and the care of the local vineyards .
Jean-Luc gets along much better with his wife Marie than with his brother. Robert's son René and Robert himself die in a fire. Thereupon the line of the Picards seems to have ended, which is why Jean-Luc gets into a personal crisis ( Star Trek: Meeting of the Generations ) .
Before Picard became captain of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D in 2363, he was captain of the Stargazer for about 20 years, on which he previously served as a lieutenant. After the destruction of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D (Galaxy class), he was given command of its successor ship, the NCC-1701-E of the Sovereign class.
His romantic relationships usually do not last, if one disregards the one with his "wife" Eline in an alternative reality (the second life) . He has feelings for Beverly Crusher during the show; However, he only admits to her in the seventh season that he had such at all. However, she rejects him on the grounds that they should both be afraid of their feelings. The last episode of the series tells of an alternate future in which Jean-Luc and Beverly got married, but the marriage ended in divorce. Beverly kept the name and is called Beverly Picard.
Picard is assimilated in a fight with the Borg to "Locutus von Borg" (Latin: "speaking, speaker", also based on the middle part of name Luc). Only by using all the resources of the Enterprise-D in a spectacular maneuver by First Officer Riker can he be freed again. Although all cybernetic implants can be removed again, he cannot fully recover psychologically from the assimilation. Starfleet later even tries to keep Picard out of a fight with the Borg, but only by disobeying direct orders and intervening can the earth be saved from assimilation.
In the following years Picard commands the USS Enterprise-E and again defies the orders of the Federation High Command in the Ba'ku conflict. With the help of the federation, the species of Son'a want to claim the peaceful planet Ba'ku for themselves and abduct the population living there in order to use the regenerative abilities of the world and thus extend their lives. Picard resists this, defeats the Son'a and enables the Ba'ku to continue to inhabit their world.
A few years later, Picard meets Shinzon, a clone of himself who had been created as a secret Romulan project to take Picard's role in the Federation. However, these plans are discarded and Shinzon is banished to the sister planet of the planet Romulus, after Remus. Here he becomes a great general of the oppressed Remans . He wins victories in the Dominion War and even becomes praetor of the empire through the coup of some Romulan military. Picard can defeat his clone while at the same time saving the earth and humanity from impending destruction.
In an episode of the Star Trek: Short Treks series , Picard can be seen as an admiral.
In Star Trek: Picard his life from 2399 is shown. He lives in seclusion on his winery in France, but after meeting the android Dahj (Data's daughter) he goes in search of her twin sister. When he has found them, they try to protect the androids' homeworld against the Romulan secret group Zhat Vash, thanks to Picard. In addition, Starfleet's ban on artificial life is lifted. Picard dies of a brain anomaly on the mission, but he lives on in an artificial body that looks exactly like his real one, so he will continue to be played by Sir Patrick Stewart. He and his team embark on further adventures on the ship “La Sirena”.
- The "Picard Maneuver"
Jean-Luc Picard first used the space combat maneuver named after him in 2355 with the ship USS Stargazer (NCC 2893, Constellation-class) to defend himself against the attack of a Ferengi ship . Some Ferengi refer to this incident somewhat exaggeratedly as The Battle of Maxia . The maneuver can be used with ships with faster than light speed against ships with below light speed sensors and works like this:
- The two ships involved approach each other within sensor range.
- Own ship (A) makes a short warp flight in the direction of the enemy ship (B).
- If A goes under warp in the immediate vicinity of B, A appears in the "sluggish" sensor image of B still at the original location.
- A shoots at the surprised opponent.
The action takes only 30 seconds, but only succeeds if the sensor range of ship A is greater than that of ship B and the attacked ship is still equipped with sensors that cannot detect objects faster than light.
In fan circles, Picard's characteristic gesture of straightening his uniform top is also jokingly referred to as the "Picard maneuver".
Commander William Thomas Riker
William Riker, played by Jonathan Frakes , is the first officer of the Enterprise-D and the Enterprise-E and thus Picard's deputy, who often addresses him with "number one" (see number one ). He holds the rank of commander.
Riker was born on April 15, 2335 in Valdez ( Alaska born) on Earth. His mother passed away when he was a baby. He has been married to Deanna Troi since Star Trek: Nemesis .
In addition to the crew assessments, his tasks also include all field missions, since according to Starfleet rules the captain is not allowed to visit unsafe planets. However, this rule is occasionally ignored by Captain Picard, leading to minor disputes with his first officer. Riker is also an excellent pilot. He received five awards, but these are not explained in the series. He also loves poker , jazz and plays the trombone , an instrument played by Jonathan Frakes himself.
Riker is said to be promoted to captain several times and given his own command, but always refuses to be able to stay on the Enterprise.
Before the series began, Riker had a close love affair with Deanna Troi. This is discussed several times and establishes a special familiarity between the two characters. In Star Trek: The Insurrection, this love flares up again and leads to the wedding of the two at the beginning of Star Trek: Nemesis . In the course of the plot of this film, Riker also finally accepts the promotion to captain and receives his own ship, the USS Titan, a Luna-class spaceship, on which he and his wife will form the Starfleet task force for the Romulans .
Riker was also once offered by Q to become part of the Q continuum and thus quasi omnipotent. However, he refused.
Riker was doubled due to a transporter anomaly. There are therefore two Riker, one of whom ( Thomas Riker ) remains in an evacuated station after the accident and is there alone for years. This time changes personality and creates differences between the two. After the second Riker was found again by the Enterprise-D , William Riker gave his middle name to him. Therefore he goes by the name Thomas Riker. Thomas Riker later runs over to the Maquis in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and turns against Starfleet.
Commander Riker has a brief appearance in Star Trek: Raumschiff Voyager , as a witness at a hearing in which the suicide of a Q is decided (Season 2, episode 14/34 chron. - Death Wish / Death Wish).
He has two guest appearances in Star Trek: Picard , in which he reports that he had two children, but one died early. He left Starfleet to settle on the planet Nepenthe, but in 2399 he was appointed captain for a short time to come to the aid of his former captain, Jean-Luc Picard.
- The "Riker Maneuver"
In Star Trek: The Uprising , he spontaneously developed the Riker maneuver named after him. Highly explosive gas is collected from a fog and ejected again shortly before the enemy ship. So when the enemy ship shoots at the supposed target, it does not hit the actual ship, but the gas cloud and is destroyed by the resulting explosion.
Some fans jokingly refer to Riker's peculiarity of stepping over the back of the chair to sit down as a Riker maneuver.
Lieutenant Commander Data
Data, played by Brent Spiner , is an Android and serves on the Enterprise-D and on the Enterprise-E as Second Officer and Operations Officer. He holds the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
It was created by Dr. Noonien Soong , a cyberneticist who spent his life trying to develop a viable positronic brain.
After a long series of unsuccessful attempts, Dr. Soong, to create the first functional android in his own image, which he named "B-4". When name dialing a pun was woven: B-4 (engl. " Be four ") is homophon to " before " ( previously ).
Dr. Soong continued his research to create an android that is even more powerful and more like humans. These efforts finally resulted in Lore (lore: English transmission, tradition; an allusion to it in the episode Das Duplikat , English Datalore , i.e. data transmission, but also an allusion to the two brothers), a sentient Android with superhuman intelligence and strength. There was a kind of malfunction in the interplay of positronic matrix and emotions, because due to his enormous strength and intelligence Lore felt superior to the people around him and strived to control them. He was arrogant and sometimes aggressive.
Dr. Soong felt compelled to switch off Lore and developed Data that is exactly like his two brothers. Only a few improvements have been made. In addition, Dr. Soong Data demonstrated the ability to sense emotions in order to prevent a behavioral disorder like the one Lore had developed. But even before Data could be put into operation after a trial phase, the memory files of which were removed from his memory, the colony in which Dr. Soong was alive, attacked by a crystalline being that drew energy from all biological organisms and thus killed the population. Dr. Soong managed to escape in time, but left Data, who was in no danger, behind.
In the meantime, data is being recovered from members of the Federation. Inspired by his rescuers and with no clues as to his origin, Data feels it is perfectly logical to emulate his rescuers and goes to the Starfleet Academy. There he received special awards in exobiology and mechanics after successful training and then took up his service as a lieutenant in the Enterprise. He is unable to understand humor or experience other feelings (this property was only specified in later episodes; therefore, in some early episodes, Data can seem quite emotional). His greatest wish is to become human, so over the course of the series and the films he tries again and again to become more like his human friends (especially Geordi La Forge ) by imitating emotions such as laughter to physical necessities such as yawning or sleeping .
The fact that Data is an Android offers a wide range of content and dramaturgical options, including claiming ownership of it, which provides material for discussion about human rights (as a result, who owns data? ). Inspired by the observation that people have children, Data tries to create his own offspring, whom he baptizes with the name Lal. The android, initially created as a neuter, chooses the shape of a young human woman after weighing several options and thus becomes Data's daughter. When the existence of the new android becomes known, Starfleet re-emerges, which Lal regards as property and has decided to take it away from Data. This triggers a malfunction in Lal that enables her to perceive feelings and at the same time overloads her positronic brain. Despite her best efforts, Data cannot save her and she dies.
Data's positronic brain continues to evolve, Dr. Soong gave him the ability to dream, which he can only use from a certain level of development. Soong has also developed an emotion chip for him, but it falls into Lore's hands due to unfortunate circumstances and only comes back to Data when Lore is dismantled. When Data finally dares to use it ( meeting of the generations ), he suddenly understands all the jokes and punch lines he has ever heard. This restricts his ability to act so much that Geordi can be kidnapped. His positron brain is overloaded with these constant "fits of laughter" and the emotion chip merges firmly into data. Data then asks the captain to release him from duty. However, the latter refuses the request, forcing Data to adapt to the new situation and ultimately learning to keep his emotions under control. Nevertheless, there will be situations later in which switching off this circuit is of great help to him (for example in The First Contact ).
Thanks to its positronic brain, Data is able to perform around 60 trillion arithmetic operations per second. Data's storage capacity is shown in the German version of the episode Who belongs to Data? given as 800 billion bits. This would only correspond to about 100 gigabytes. However, it was simply a translation error. The original speaks of “ 800 quadrillion bits ”, which, according to the German counting system, corresponds to 800 quadrillion bits, i.e. approx. 100,000,000 gigabytes (= 100,000 terabytes = 100 petabytes = 0.1 exabytes).
In addition, Data has an aging program which, if he so wishes, enables him to also age externally.
Data is able to drink certain drinks that are used both for cooling and as a "lubricant" for his body ("it drips when you stab it"), he blinks in a seemingly random order (in reality, afterwards a Fourier series ), makes breathing movements, has body temperature, does not need sleep (when he gains the ability to dream, he sleeps in a controlled manner for study purposes), can control his hair growth at will and is sexually fully functional (including first contact ). In addition, he does not forget anything he has read and is able to imitate any voice. He also has a short-range transponder hidden under his thumbnail. In his spare time, he paints pictures or listens to four pieces of classical music at the same time (he can hear and understand many more at the same time, but for "enjoyment" he does not take more than four) while doing a self-diagnosis.
In Star Trek: Nemesis , Data is promoted to commander and thus first officer of the Enterprise. However, he cannot take up the post because it is destroyed during a battle: he sacrifices himself by tacking the prototype of a one-person short-range transporter to Captain Picard and rescuing him and the Enterprise.
Captain Picard describes Data as a being who always wanted to improve. Data's desire to become and to appear more human challenged the comparison with Pinocchio from the start , which was also discussed in the series.
Data shared his quarters on the Enterprise-D with his cat Spot .
Although Data as an android is able to move both hands in exactly the same way, he carries out the "main activities" with his left hand, which is due to the fact that Spiner is left-handed .
In Star Trek: Picard, Picard dreams of Data several times. Brent Spiner plays Data in the dream sequences. The series also tells us that Data had painted two paintings with the title “Daughter” many years earlier. In addition, in the season finale of Season 1 it is shown that it is Dr. Altan Inigo Soong has succeeded in restoring his entire consciousness from fragments of Data's positronic brain and thus keeping him alive in a simulation.
At the end of the episode, Data asked Picard to end this simulation now, which would mean his ultimate death, but death is also part of his pursuit of human perfection. Picard, who has seen a friend in Data, can say goodbye to him after the events in "Star Trek: Nemesis" and thus fulfills his last wish.
Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge
Geordi La Forge (born February 16, 2335) (played by LeVar Burton ) is the chief engineer of the Enterprise-D and the Enterprise-E . He holds the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
La Forge is blind from birth and has been using a VISOR (Visual Instrument & Sight Organ Replacement) from the age of five to the seventh film ( Meeting of Generations ), which is worn like glasses (cf. Latin visor = "seer" ) and connected directly to the brain. He can use it to carry out spectral analyzes. Later ( First Contact ) VISOR is artificial eye implants replaced to him about the previous skills addition, the Zoom enable distant objects. He can also perceive a significantly enlarged wavelength spectrum , for example from the infrared range . During the movie Star Trek: The Uprising , his eyes regenerate due to the planetary radiation and he can see normally. However, this effect does not last, so that he wears the implants again in the following period ( nemesis ). La Forge sees his perception through the VISOR or the implants neither as a burden nor as an advantage.
In 2357 he graduated from the Starfleet Academy. From 2361 he served as an ensign on the USS Victory under Cpt. Zimbata. In 2364 he switched to the Enterprise as a flight controller. In 2365 he was promoted to lieutenant and chief engineer. Riker gives him eyesight as Q, but he refuses. He is also against one of Dr. Pulaski performed surgery which, if successful, would give him eyesight.
In the Voyager episode Temporal Paradox , which is set a few years in the future in an alternate timeline, he can be seen as the captain of the USS Challenger (Galaxy class).
Both parents work in Starfleet. His mother Silva has been captain of the USS Hera for seven months, when it was considered missing from 2370, his father is an exobiologist. La Forge's best friend is Data.
Geordi was named after the Star Trek fan George La Forge, who died of muscle wasting in 1975 . His VISOR is an Alice band modeled after the niece of the production designer of the series, Herman F. Zimmerman wore.
(Since Star Trek: Meeting of Generations : Lieutenant Commander Worf )
Worf (born December 9, 2340) (played by Michael Dorn ) is the first Klingon in Starfleet. He is the son of Mogh, who was innocently accused of collaborating with the Romulans, and the grandson of Colonel Worf (also played by Michael Dorn ), who on Qo'noS 2293 is Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. McCoy defended before the Klingon High Council ( Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Land ). He moved with his parents to the Khitomer outpost in 2346, where he lost his parents in a Romulan massacre in which 4,000 Klingons were killed. He is there by Sergey Rozhenko, a Starfleet officer of the USS Intrepid, found, adopted and raised on Earth, where he has problems integrating into human society. In 2361 he graduated from the Starfleet Academy and in 2363 came as Lieutenant junior grade and flight control officer on the USS Enterprise D. In 2364 he was promoted to Lieutenant and followed Tasha Yar after her death as Chief Security Officer of the Enterprise-D. In 2366 Worf was dishonored by the Klingon High Council at Duras' endeavor. The mother of his son Alexander, who was born in 2363, Ambassador K'Ehleyr, is murdered while researching the Khitomer massacre. Worf avenges the death of his companion by killing her killer Duras in a duel. Worf also has a son named Jeremy Aster who has been adopted under the Klingon Alliance. In 2368, Worf was injured and paralyzed in the spine in an accident. He then wants to commit ritual suicide (Hegh'bat). Dr. However, Toby Russell experiments on him with genetronic replication and replaces his spine. In 2366 he met his brother Kurn for the first time. In 2367/68 he joined his brother to fight against the Duras sympathizers. In 2369 he meets a successor (clone) of the great warrior Kahless on the planet Boreth, who is then installed as a ceremonial emperor.
After the destruction of the Enterprise-D, Worf serves as a strategic officer on the space station Deep Space Nine. There he married Jadzia Dax , with whom he wanted to start a family. However, Jadzia is murdered during the Dominion War.
If there is a disagreement about the senseless use of General Martok, a duel between Worf and Gowron occurs and Worf kills Gowron, after which Worf appoints General Martok as the new chancellor.
After Star Trek: Nemesis , Worf will remain in his old position as head of security on the Enterprise-E.
Worf is the main character with the longest cast time in the Star Trek universe, over a period of 354 episodes in the period from September 1987 (TNG) to June 1999 (DS9) and 4 TNG films (1994-2002).
Counselor Deanna Troi
Deanna Troi (born April 29, 2336) (played by Marina Sirtis ) is the daughter of the eccentric Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi . Troi is half-betazoid with a human father and is empathetic - she can sense strong feelings from other people. She is therefore particularly well suited to her role as “ship counselor”, in which she supports the ship's captain as a psychological advisor, for example by exposing lies or assessing the aggressiveness of the other person. In addition, she assists crew members and passengers in order to cope with difficult personal phases. It fulfills these functions on the Enterprise-D and on the Enterprise-E . She is considered very attractive.
Deanna had a sister named Kestra who, however, drowned due to a parent's carelessness when Deanna was a baby. The fact that Deanna once had an older sister did not become known to her until years later on the Enterprise when her mother, who at the time was acting as ambassador for the Cairn, collapsed several times under stress. Marques von den Cairn cites an emotional trauma due to the repression of Kestra's death as the reason. (7th season, episode Place of Darkness)
She initially holds the rank of Lieutenant Commander, but is promoted to commander on board the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D towards the end of her service (7th season, episode radioactive ), after she takes the bridge officer examination and learns that you are in command Officer must also be able to send people to their deaths if the survival of the crew or the ship is in danger, which almost leads them to reject their new rank.
When Commander Riker was stationed on Betazed, Deanna first met her future husband. At the time she was having an affair with William Riker , whose twin van is still in love with her. Later she and Worf get closer. In the double episode Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow , which concludes the series , the beginning of a relationship between the two can be seen - which, however, never fully unfolded in the alternative future depicted there due to an early death Trois. As soon as the generations meet , the development no longer follows that of the alternative future and the relationship between Troi and Worf is no longer pursued. Instead, Troi begins a relationship with Riker again in Der Aufstand , which ultimately leads to a wedding in Nemesis .
In Star Trek: Picard , Troi continues to be played by Marina Sirtis . She is married to Riker and has a son and a daughter with him, the son of which has already passed away. They live on the planet Nepenthe.
Lieutenant Natasha "Tasha" Yar
Tasha Yar (played by Denise Crosby ) is the Enterprise-D's chief security officer during the first season of TNG . She holds the rank of lieutenant.
Yar was born on Turkana IV, a planet that went into anomie after leaving the Federation . There she learned to defend herself. You and Commander Data had a brief intimate relationship. Less than a year after the Enterprise-D began its mission, Lieutenant Yar was killed on Vagra II by an alien named Armus, described as "the repulsed evil" of an evolutionarily advanced civilization.
Yar reappeared when the Enterprise D hit the Enterprise C in an alternate timeline . Here she learns of her original death from Guinan and decides to travel back in time on the Enterprise C. This creates an alternate lineage in which she becomes a Romulan captive and has a daughter with a Romulan officer, Sela (also played by Denise Crosby). While Tasha is executed for attempting to escape, Sela ascends in the Romulan system and becomes a dangerous enemy of the Enterprise D and the Klingon Empire . Tasha Yar can also be seen in the final double episode of The Next Generation ( Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow ), in which Captain Picard travels through three times. She accompanies Picard in a shuttle to the Enterprise, whose first flight was imminent.
Dr. Beverly Crusher
Beverly Crusher (born October 13, 2324) (played by Gates McFadden ) is the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the Enterprise-D and the Enterprise-E . She holds the rank of commander.
She was born on October 13, 2324 in Copernicus City on the Moon to Paul and Isabel Howard and spent her childhood on Arvada III (Federation Colony), where she learned a lot about medicinal herbs from her grandmother. In 2348 she married Jack Crusher and had a son, Wesley Crusher, a year later. She finished her medical studies on Earth in 2350 and worked as an assistant to Dr. Dalen Quaice on Daled IV. Her husband died in 2354, who was on the Stargazer under Cpt. Picard served. From 2364 she was chief physician on the Enterprise . She took over the management of the Starfleet Medical Center on Earth for one year and was supported by Dr. Pulaski replaced. After that, Dr. Crusher back on board. She is very active on the Enterprise in areas such as theater and dance . But after the events in the film Nemesis , she takes on the role of director of the Starfleet Medical Center on Earth again.
As the “Chief Medical Officer” she is the only one authorized to issue direct orders to the captain.
Gates McFadden, who studied theater studies, took over the choreography of dance scenes in various episodes during the filming . During the production of the fourth season, she became pregnant, which resulted in her not being seen or only standing behind instruments in several episodes.
Ensign Wesley Crusher
Wesley Crusher (played by Wil Wheaton ) is the teenage son of Beverly Crusher and Jack Robert Crusher. Wesley "served" on the Enterprise-D . In the episode Die Damen Troi he missed the oral exam and had to wait a year to be able to repeat it. Due to his special merits, however, Captain Picard appointed him ensign until further notice. In the German translation, Wesley is incorrectly referred to as a Lieutenant, although his badge clearly indicates the rank of ensign.
After meeting the "traveler", Crusher is particularly encouraged by Captain Picard (since the traveler recognizes an extraordinary intellect in him) and named "Ensign Honorary" (in the original Acting Ensign ). He probably owes his first name in the series to Gene Roddenberry , whose middle name was "Wesley". One of the tasks he takes on aboard the Enterprise is steering the ship.
After an unsuccessful attempt to pass the entrance exam, Wesley is eventually admitted to Starfleet Academy in San Francisco . Here a serious accident occurs while trying to practice a prohibited flight maneuver for the graduation ceremony. A member of the Novageschwader flight squadron , who also belongs to Wesley, loses his life. The team agrees to cover up the true background, although more and more doubts about the truth of the statements arise; Wesley's remorse grows, however. Finally he confesses to the investigating officers the misconduct of the flight squadron. In a later episode he breaks off his training and accompanies the “traveler” to a higher level of existence. In Star Trek: Nemesis , however, he can be seen as one of the guests at Trois and Riker's wedding in Starfleet uniform. When and why he returned is not explained.
Dr. Katherine Pulaski
Commander Dr. Katherine Pulaski (played by Diana Muldaur ) is a doctor and replaces Beverly Crusher as chief medical officer when she leaves the ship to head Starfleet's medical division on Earth for a year. Dr. Pulaski previously worked on the USS Repulse and has a more direct personality than her predecessor, which occasionally leads to conflicts with Captain Picard and others. In her private life, she dated Kyle Riker, the father of the Enterprise's first officer, for a while. After a year she leaves the Enterprise again when Dr. Crusher returns.
Dr. Pulaski has a beam phobia. She therefore prefers to use a shuttle, as she is very afraid that a malfunction could occur during beaming and that her atoms will be distributed in space. She had to be beamed in the TNG episode “Die Junge Greise”, as this was the only way to neutralize an illness that made her age very quickly.
Diana Muldaur replaced Gates McFadden in season two when producers discovered that the Beverly Crusher character wasn't developing as planned. However, the fans could never warm to the brisk nature of the new ship's doctor. The verbal duels between her and Data were not well received either, although they were a homage to the old verbal battles between Spock and Dr. McCoy were intended. So finally Dr. Crusher reactivated.
Senior Chief Petty Officer (SCPO) Miles Edward O'Brien
see: Chief O'Brien
Lieutenant Junior Grade Reginald Barclay
Reginald Endicott "Reg" Barclay III. (played by Dwight Schultz ) is a technician on board the Enterprise-D and plays an important role in some episodes. Despite his brilliant mind, Barclay is strongly inhibited and sociophobic in dealing with his fellow human beings , which manifests itself in his hesitant and stuttering speech as well as his tendency to withdraw completely into the holodeck dream worlds he has created . Despite this contact inhibition, Lt. Barclay appreciated and liked by all colleagues. However, he had initially been given the unflattering nickname "Broccoli" by Wesley Crusher, until the captain forbade Lt. Calling Barclay like that (but accidentally addresses him like that himself afterwards).
After the destruction of the Enterprise-D, Barclay is first transferred to the Enterprise-E and, after its return from the 21st century ( The First Contact ), to the Boy Scout Project, whose task it is to contact Voyager and to return it to Voyager help, so that he can also be seen in some Voyager episodes. In the Voyager episode final , which plays the part of a few years in the future an alternate timeline, he carries the rank of Commander and has stopped in part to stutter. However, this future will never happen, as Admiral Kathryn Janeway changed the present from that very future to bring the Voyager home.
In the PC game Star Trek: Elite Force 2 , Barclay can be seen as chief engineer on the Enterprise-E. This is a mistake, since Geordi La Forge can be seen in all films with the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 E as chief engineer and Barclay has since been transferred.
Ensign Ro Laren
Ro Laren (played by Michelle Forbes ) is a Bajoran. She impressed Picard with her strong will and her sense of justice. In her time on the Enterprise, Picard is almost a father figure to Ro, but she turns away from him when she converts to the Maquis. Ro Laren holds the culture of her own people very high and is valued on the Enterprise. She draws the crew's attention to the fact that (as in many cultures around the world) it is common for Bajorans to name their family name first: This is why her name is Ensign Ro, and Laren is her first name.
Originally, the rebellious Ro Laren was supposed to represent a kind of replacement for Tasha Yar and thus become one of the main characters in the series. Actress Michelle Forbes decided against it in favor of a cinema career, so that Ro Laren appears quite often from the beginning of the fifth season, but soon fades into the background again. In addition, Ro Laren was planned as a liaison officer for Deep Space Nine. But Michelle Forbes turned it down too, because she didn't want to commit to a role yet.
Guinan is the mysterious bartender in Ten Forward (in the original: Ten Forward Lounge ), the common room of the Enterprise-D. She is played by Whoopi Goldberg . Guinan is one of the important supporting characters in Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century , especially her role in Star Trek: Meetings of the Generations has a prominent meaning. However, the character Guinan only appears on the Enterprise-D, with the exception of a short scene in Nemesis . Guinan is probably over 600 years old - which is not uncommon for their people, the El Aurians , who were almost completely exterminated by the Borg . She has a subtle, from a human point of view even supersensible feeling for what is happening around her; For example, in the TNG episode The Old Enterprise , she knows how to recognize irregularities in the space-time structure. In their power they can use it even Q accommodate. She is an informal advisor to all crew members. She has a deep friendship, especially with Captain Picard, who first met (from Guinan's point of view) in San Francisco in the late 19th century , during Picard's journey through time in the TNG double episode Danger from the 19th century . Picard and Guinan also often spend their free time together.
With her knowledge, she also makes a significant contribution to the decisions of the senior officers. However, Q has pointed out a second, dangerous side of Guinan, which could be because he can't do what he wants with her. She has significant knowledge of the Borg, the Q, the El-Aurians and the general universe, which Picard often helps. After 23 marriages, she no longer feels the need to remarry.
Lwaxana Troi, played by Majel Barrett , is from the planet Betazed and is the mother of Counselor Deanna Troi . Usually she is accompanied by her servant, Mr. Homn. She is a high-ranking figure on her home planet, her official title is: Daughter of the Fifth House, Keeper of the Chalice of Rixx, Heiress of the Sacred Rings of Betazed. She has the rank of ambassador for the Federation and represents it at various conferences.
Lwaxana Troi is an eccentric , somewhat egomaniacal personality who likes to let the people she interacts with feel that they cannot hide anything from her, because as a telepathically gifted betazoid she is able to read their minds. For this reason and because of her captivating character, her daughter has a rather divided relationship with her. Their hedonistic character and their healthy libido also cause them to often make significant advances to various male personalities in their environment. Captain Picard in particular suffered from their stalking for a long time.
Later it was Constable Odo , chief security officer of the space station Deep Space Nine , whom she felt very attached to, much to the chagrin. However, the two later became deeply friends, as Lwaxana is quite able to recognize her limits and also has a very understanding, soft side. At the time, she also knew how to help Alexander , von Worf's son , when he had difficulties with his father.
The servant of Lwaxana Troi, played by Carel Struycken , is always referred to as Mr. Homn. He is humanoid, lean, very tall, very strong and consumes a lot of alcohol. His predecessor Xelo was fired because he fell in love with his mistress. Mr. Homn is proficient in sign language. His duties include Betazoid thanksgiving during a meal by striking a gong as soon as a bite reaches his mistress' mouth.
Duras, played by Patrick Massett , is a Klingon warrior and leader of one of the most powerful houses in the Klingon Empire. His father was responsible for the massacre at the Khitomer outpost because he disclosed secret codes to the Romulans . However, through an intrigue, this betrayal was blamed on Mogh, father of Worf and Kurn .
When Duras competes with Gowron for the successor to the chancellery, K'Ehleyr, Worf's lover, threatens to bring the truth to light, for which she is killed by Duras. Thereupon this is again killed by Worf, whereupon all claims of the house Duras to power in the council lapse, since Duras apparently had no male heirs.
It later turns out that there is indeed a son, Toral, who claims the office of chancellor. The supervisor of the successor rite , Jean-Luc Picard , does not recognize this, however, whereupon the Duras-loyal members leave the council and start a civil war together with Duras' sisters Lursa and B'Etor .
Lursa and B'Etor
Lursa and B'Etor, played by Barbara March and Gwynyth Walsh , are the Klingon sisters of the Duras. After the death of their brother, they try to establish his son Toral as chancellor, but this fails. Thereupon they plunge the empire into a civil war in which they seek the support of the Romulans under the leadership of Commander Sela . However, this aid is thwarted by a Federation fleet under the command of Captain Picard .
When she later met the El-Aurian scientist Dr. Tolian Soran, who wants to build a bomb to get to the Nexus (see Meeting of Generations ), they are killed when the Enterprise, led by Commander Riker, destroys their spaceship. Nevertheless, they are responsible for the crash of the Enterprise-D .
Sela, played by Denise Crosby , is the Romulan-human daughter of Tasha Yar . It is the product of an alternate timeline in which Tasha Yar was sent back in time to aid the Enterprise-C in a battle between the Klingons and the Romulans . There Tasha was captured by the Romulans, but saved by a Romulan general who fell in love with her, married her and had a child with her.
As an adult, Sela quickly makes a career. She has Geordi La Forge kidnapped and manipulated in order to have this one murdered Klingon ambassador, but this is foiled. She later allied herself with the Klingon Duras sisters to support them in the Klingon civil war, which, however, failed, as did her later attempt to invade Vulkan, for which she wanted to abuse Ambassador Spock . The game Star Trek Online shows Sela a few years after Star Trek: Nemesis as the tyrannical Romulan empress.
The house cat Spot belongs to Lieutenant Commander Data , who shares quarters with her on the Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E .
The female cat "plays" an important supporting role in several episodes (there were several contributing cats, all of whom were cats). Data mentions the difficulty of keeping Spot happy with new food compositions - at this point he had already created 43 cat food production programs for the food producer ("replicator"). In the episode In den Subraum kidnapped (English. Schisms ) Data also performs his self-written “ Ode to Spot”, which, however, does not find the undivided appreciation of his human friends.
In another episode, his pet turns into an iguana because a synthetic T-cell that is used to cure Lt. Barclay was created, causing an inadvertent transformation of all living things on board. Because of a grammatical peculiarity in English, Spot undergoes a sex change (also in the original version), because he is introduced as a tomcat in his first appearances, but later the script requires him to throw young.
The Android Lore, also played by Brent Spiner , is the "brother" of Lt. Cmdr. Data - they were both written by Dr. Noonien Soong created. However, Lore has a completely different character and is hostile to organic life forms. He has feelings that Data initially looked for in vain. He succeeds in gathering some renegade Borg around him, whereupon he is deactivated and dismantled.
Dr. Noonia Soong
Dr. Noonien Soong (played by Brent Spiner ) is a descendant of Dr. Arik Soong ( also played by Brent Spiner in three episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise ), who was imprisoned in the middle of the 22nd century for doing illegal genetic research and trying to breed genetically improved humans, so-called Augments, whose genetic material was still there Dated from the time of the eugenic wars. However, due to the horrific acts and violent nature of the augments he improved and hatched, Arik Soong concluded that it would be better to stop his research and instead shift his research focus to cybernetics in order to create artificial life forms.
Noonien Soong finally continued the cybernetic work of his ancestor, which he could not finish during his lifetime, and finally created the first positronic brain, which formed the basis for androids such as Lore , Data , B-4 and Juliana O'Donnell. He built most of his androids on the planet Omicron Theta. However, the colony was destroyed by the so-called crystalline being, which had previously been summoned by the android Lore. Noonia Soong escaped, but all other colonists were killed.
Noonien Soong withdrew to a lonely planet in order to be able to devote himself further to his research. When he realizes that he is about to die due to his age, he activates a kind of recall program, which is stored in Datas circuitry, because he is supposed to follow in Soong's footsteps as a cybernetics scientist. The truck, believed to have been destroyed, also reappears. Soong is fooled into having an emotion chip implanted for Data. Dr. Soong is then killed by Lore.
Sister Alyssa Ogawa, played by Patti Yasutake , is an ensign on the Enterprise-D medical staff. It appears for the first time in the episode Dangerous Gambling Addiction . She has a friendship with her boss Beverly Crusher. As a result of promotions one gets an insight into the life of the young officer candidates and the like. a. also from Ogawa. She can also be seen in the movies Meetings of the Generations and The First Contact .
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Captain Benjamin Sisko
Benjamin Lafayette Sisko, played by Avery Brooks , is the commanding officer (initially commander, later captain) of the space station Deep Space Nine, which was abandoned by the Cardassians.
Benjamin Sisko was born on earth in 2332. His father Joseph Sisko owns a restaurant in New Orleans. During his time at the Starfleet Academy, he met Curzon Dax, the predecessor of Jadzia Dax and Ezri Dax, and a little later his future wife Jennifer. His son Jake will also be born at that time. He gets his first post with Curzon Dax on the USS Livingston.
He is promoted to Lieutenant Commander on the USS Okinawa. After serving as first officer on the USS Saratoga, which was destroyed by the Borg in the Battle of Wolf 359 , he was transferred to the Utopia Planitia shipyard, where he worked on the Defiant project. In the incident with the Borg at Wolf 359, his wife Jennifer Sisko was also killed. After the Cardassians have withdrawn from the Terok Nor space station, which is being renamed Deep Space Nine by the Federation, Commander Sisko and Jake Sisko arrive at the Bajoran station. Sisko is a baseball fan. Soon after taking over the station, the stable wormhole is discovered where he meets the Bajoran prophets . Since then Benjamin Sisko has been venerated as an envoy by the Bajorans. During the power struggles between the Dominion and the Federation, he also became commander of the USS Defiant, and a little later he was promoted to captain. He also met Kasidy Yates through his son Jake. In the conflict with the Dominion, he is promoted to Chief of Starfleet Security.
For the Bajorans he is a religious figure, the messenger of the prophets. However, it is not just a mere belief that he is the emissary, in fact the prophets who exist in their wormhole outside of time provided for his birth by temporarily taking over Sisko's mother from one of the prophets. After defeating the Dominion, he is taken into the wormhole by the prophets when he crashes with Gul Dukat in the cave of the Pah spirits.
Major Kira Nerys
Kira Nerys, played by Nana Visitor , is a Bajoran soldier with the rank of major (from 2375 Colonel ) who serves as the first officer and Bajoran liaison officer on the space station Deep Space Nine.
Kira Nerys was born during the Cardassian occupation of Bajor in Dakhur Province. Following the deaths of her father, Kira Taban, and her mother, Kira Meru, at age 13, Nerys was recruited into the Shakaar resistance cell, which carried out terrorist attacks on the Cardassians (on both military and civilian targets).
After the Cardassian Union withdrew from Bajor, Major Kira became an influential figure in reconstruction and politics through her position on Deep Space Nine and her proximity to Captain Benjamin Sisko .
Major Kira was in a relationship with Vedek Bareil Antos until he died in a shuttle accident. She later had a brief romantic liaison with her former cell commander and future Prime Minister of Bajor, Shakaar Edon. During this time, she also agreed to carry the O'Briens baby to term, as Keiko O'Brien had been wounded while on an outside mission and almost miscarried . Dr. Bashir then transplanted Keiko's fetus to Kira to save him. The O'Briens named their son, born in 2373, after her: Kirayoshi. Kira was “written pregnant” by the writers because the actress Nana Visitor was actually pregnant at the time. The child's father is Bashir actor Alexander Siddig . In one episode there is an amusing scene: Kira (Visitor) points to her stomach and says to Dr. Bashir (Siddig): "This is still your fault!"
After she and Shakaar broke up, she began a relationship with security chief Odo , who had been in love with her for many years, during the Dominion War .
In 2375 she was promoted to colonel while Captain Sisko was absent. In the same year she played a significant role in ending the Dominion War and later took command of DS9 after Sisko disappeared after the war and took his place with the Prophets.
Dr. Julian Bashir
Julian Bashir, played by Alexander Siddig and Siddig el Fadil, is the chief medical officer of the space station and the USS Defiant.
Julian Subatoi Bashir completed his medical training as second best at the Starfleet Academy Medical School. In the final oral exam, he deliberately mistook a preganglionic fiber for a postganglionic nerve.
His marital status is single, he has no children. He was born Jules Bashir on earth in 2341. His parents Amsha and Richard Bashir ( Federation diplomat ) made sure that Julian, physically and mentally retarded from birth, was brought to Adigeon Prime, where he was secretly illegally genetically enhanced. This genetic improvement was only known during the time he was working on the Deep Space Nine space station. His interest in medicine was piqued as a child when he watched a girl die and then learned that he could have cured her with simple herbs grown nearby. Tennis is one of his interests; However, since he had little success (or was allowed to have) with it, he switched to medicine . He begins his service on Deep Space Nine as Chief Medical Officer with the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. He had chosen a position on a remote space station. He is very good friends with the Cardassian ex-agent and current tailor Garak and with Chief Miles Edward O'Brien.
Alexander Siddig was the only actor who was firmly established as part of the DS9 core troupe from the start, as he was noticed by producer Rick Berman in a television remake of the film Lawrence of Arabia . Originally he was to get the role of captain; however, since he was too young for that, he became the ward doctor on Deep Space Nine. His uncle Malcolm McDowell plays in Star Trek: Generations unscrupulous scientist Dr. Tolian Soran.
Lieutenant Commander Jadzia Dax
Jadzia Dax, played by Terry Farrell , is a science and com officer in the series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from season one to six . It is a unified trill and therefore carries a symbiote and with it the memories of all its previous hosts. After completing her training at Starfleet Academy, Jadzia returned to Trill to be reunited with a symbiote. However, this request was initially rejected. Jadzia was the first in the history of the Trill to successfully repeat the entrance examination and was ultimately united with the symbiote Dax. Curzon, the previous host of this symbiote, was responsible for both rejection and resumption of Jadzia in the application process due to his personal feelings. This story is mentioned several times in the series, partially affects the plot and forms the basis of the character constellation Jadzia Dax - Captain Sisko.
Jadzia Dax has a close friendship with Captain Benjamin Sisko , as he had previously served on a spaceship with Curzon Dax and was close friends with him. Since she is a trained pilot, she is repeatedly used in this role on runabouts (shuttles) of the station and later on the USS Defiant. Jadzia Dax is characterized by her life as a united trill, a certain age wisdom and always ironic humor. At first it appears unapproachable; However, her qualities as an officer and her zest for life soon made her a valued part of the crew. Jadzia Dax has a wide range of interests, especially in the area of Klingon culture .
In one episode, the Dax symbiote was removed from Jadzia and kidnapped by a disunited Trill named Verad. Verad believed he had been betrayed of his association. He was briefly Verad Dax before he was captured. Dax was reunited with Jadzia. Jadzia was threatened one more time with the removal of Dax because the mind block, which had been created to cover up the fact that there had been another Dax host, was beginning to disappear and the truth would come out. Captain Sisko prevented this and Jadzia Dax received the memories from Joran Dax. On another occasion, Jadzia felt the contempt of the Trill Society when she began a relationship with Trill scientist Lenara Kahn. The previous hosts of both symbionts, Torias Dax and Nilani Kahn, were married, so Jadzia and Lenara broke a Trill taboo . The two broke off their relationship.
Although she was told by both Dr. Julian Bashir as well as being courted by Quark , she fell in love with Lt. Commander Worf after he was transferred to DS9. Jadzia wanted to get pregnant by Worf and prayed for this in the shrine of DS9 to the Prophet Bajors, where she was killed during her prayer by Gul Dukat, who was possessed by a Pah ghost. The symbiote was saved, but its condition deteriorated noticeably during the transport to Trill. Therefore it had to be implanted in the only Trill aboard the USS Destiny, Ezri Tigan , which, however, had not been prepared for union. She later also served on DS9.
Terry Farrell left the DS9 crew at his own request, as they could not enforce their fee claims against the Paramount management. Her departure at the beginning of the seventh season on US television led to a drop in ratings, as the series had practically lost its female draft horse and the episodes were viewed as rather boring, which mainly revolved around the sensitivities of the new Trill host Ezri. Mid-season ratings improved, and as DS9 headed for the multi-part finale, they even surpassed those of the series Starship Enterprise - The Next Century at its finale.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax
Ezri Dax, played by Nicole de Boer , is the successor to Jadzia Dax and serves as a counselor ( psychologist ) on Deep Space Nine in the seventh and final season of the series .
Ensign Ezri Tigan served as the ship's assistant chancellor on the USS Destiny. Unlike most trills, she had no interest in mating with a symbiote.
After Lt. Cmdr. Jadzia Dax died on Deep Space Nine, her symbiote was made by Dr. Julian Bashir was saved and was supposed to be brought to Trill aboard the Destiny. However, the symbiote Dax fell ill due to a delay on the flight. In order to save the life of the precious symbiote, he was united with the only Trill on board, Ezri Tigan. Ezri Dax is Dax's tenth host.
After the merger, Ezri Dax was assigned to Deep Space Nine and promoted to lieutenant (j. G.). Her main role is counselor, but she is also quickly making a name for herself as a science officer (in Jadzia's footsteps) and in the battle against the Dominion.
Although Jadzia was married to Worf, Ezri and Worf mutually decide not to continue this relationship. Ezri has Jadzia's memories but for understandable reasons is not the same as Jadzia for Worf. In addition, it is frowned upon in the Trill society to continue relationships from the previous lives of the symbionts. Instead, shortly afterwards, she begins a liaison with Dr. Bashir, who was already in love with her previous host Jadzia. At the end of the series, she stays with him on the space station.
Odo is portrayed by René Auberjonois .
Odo was one of 100 newborn founders sent out to explore the Gamma Quadrant. It probably entered the Alpha Quadrant through the Bajoran wormhole and was found in its liquid state in the Denorios Belt in the Bajoran system in 2337. He spent the next few years at the Bajoran Institute for Scientific Research as "odo'ital", which in Cardassian means "nothing", but was translated as "unknown object". According to the Bajoran convention to put the surname in front of the first name, this designation was reinterpreted and "Odo" became his surname, by which he was called from then on. Dr. Mora Pol discovered his shape-changing abilities through experiments in 2356 .
In 2363 Odo left the institute after having to perform the famous neck trick for Gul Dukat, among others , and worked as an arbitrator on the Terok Nor space station for the next two years. While helping Dukat solve a murder case, he first met Kira Nerys and Quark . Due to his efficiency in solving the case, Dukat promoted him to the security officer (it later emerged that Odo had accused the wrong person and Kira was the perpetrator). After the end of the Cardassian occupation in 2369, he stayed on the station despite a murder charge by Bajorans; the charge could be invalidated as Odo never killed and never carried a gun.
At the request of the Bajoran Provisional Government, the space station was taken over by the Federation and renamed Deep Space Nine. Odo was appointed security chief by Commander Benjamin Sisko because of his outstanding skills . In 2371 he discovered the homeworld of the founders and learned something about his origins for the first time. During the war against the Dominion and thus against the founders, he got into a conflict of interests and decided on the federation. He was the first and only shapeshifter to kill a member of his own people.
Odo fell in love with Kira Nerys at an early age. Later this love is also reciprocated. Odo ended the war by convincing the founders that it was pointless to suppress all solids to ensure one's own survival. Ultimately, Odo returned to the great connection.
Odo has to return to his liquid form for a period of time every eighteen (or sixteen, the episodes contradict each other) hours. For this purpose he has a bucket in his quarters in which he liquefies.
Quark is portrayed by Armin Shimerman , because of its light hair growth, Quark is one of the few Ferengi without the usual scarf on the back of the head. He is a bartender and shows typical characteristics of the Ferengi, but takes on different traits in some episodes such as war deals. In addition to the constant greed for profit, Quark also has its own moral standards in the series. This could best be described as the middle ground between the Ferengi culture and the federal laws. It can be very annoying to others. With Constable Odo in particular, he is constantly in conflict because of his often illegal transactions (such as smuggling). Quark was the Great Nagus of the Ferengi for a short time, as the then Great Nagus Zek nominated him as his successor and then faked his death. Zek wanted to put his son Krax to the test in terms of his ability to succeed him. However, this failed in the eyes of his father and so Zek decided to remain in this office himself.
Jake is the only son of Benjamin and Jennifer Sisko. After his mother's death, he accompanies his father to the Deep Space Nine space station, where he is initially one of the few children and quickly becomes friends with his only peer, Nog .
Jake's passion is writing. He dreams of becoming a successful writer and after the brief conquest of Deep Space Nine by the Dominion, he voluntarily (and without his father's consent) stays on the station to serve as war correspondent. He's not interested in a career as an officer in Starfleet.
Jake Sisko is portrayed by Cirroc Lofton and, in one episode, as an old man by Tony Todd .
Senior Chief Petty Officer (SCPO) Miles Edward O'Brien
He is the chief engineer of Deep Space Nine and is played by Colm Meaney .
He has been a transport technician since 2347, while on the USS Rutledge under Cpt. Benjamin Maxwell serves. There he was an eyewitness to a Cardassian massacre on Setlik III, where he lost a friend. From 2364 (stardate 41000) he is the helmsman, from 2365 (stardate 42000) he is the transporter chief on the USS Enterprise-D and thus appears regularly in the series Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century .
He is the son of Starfleet Officer Michael O'Brien. He has been married to the botanist Keiko Ishikawa since stardate 44391 and has a daughter named Molly since about stardate 45000 (the consequence of Disasters ). The name of their second child, a son, is Kirayoshi. The name is made up of the names of Major Kira and Keiko's father Yoshi. From 2369 he served on the space station Deep Space Nine, regulating the docking of ships and the maintenance of the station. As a teacher, he represented his wife on DS9 in 2369 when she traveled to earth to see her mother.
Miles O'Brien has a close friendship with Julian Bashir.
He is also the only member of the management staff who is not an officer , because "Chief" is the salutation for the higher non-commissioned officer ranks (based on the US model); that's why he's mostly called Chief O'Brien. O'Brien holds the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer . The officer ranks only begin with the ensign (in German ensign ). He still wore the insignia of a lieutenant at times on the Enterprise.
Like Data , the O'Briens have a cat, Chester, who the Chief brought back from an undercover operation that was supposed to infiltrate an Orion Syndicate cell . The cat belonged to the leader of this cell, with whom O'Brien was friendly and who was killed during a mission.
see: Lieutenant Worf
Rom ( Max Grodénchik ) is Quark's brother and initially works with him in Quark's Bar. He is portrayed as not particularly smart, especially at the beginning, but develops into one of the technicians on the station over the course of the series and is in the Dominion Wars involved in the recapture of Terok Nor by sabotaging the station systems. He did not, as his mother Ishka explains in the episode "Family Affairs", like Quark, inherited the greed of the Ferengi-atypical Ishka for profit, but like his father, he is technically gifted. At the end of the series (episode "In the Troubles of War") he becomes the new Great Nagus of the Ferengi, although he is the opposite of what was previously expected of an incumbent.
Nog ( Aron Eisenberg ) is the son of Rome. He grows up with Jake Sisko, the son of the station commander. He works in his uncle's bar until he later becomes the first Ferengi in Starfleet. In the war against the Dominion, he loses a leg defending the planet AR-558. The leg is replaced, however, and after Nog overcomes the psychosomatic pain, there appears to be no difference from the previous leg.
Gowron ( DS9 )
see: Gowron ( TNG )
Keiko O'Brien, b. Ishikawa, played by Rosalind Chao , is Chief O'Brien's wife and a trained botanist. She met her future husband on board the Enterprise-D and moved with him and their daughter Molly to the space station Deep Space Nine. There she founds the ward school and teaches as a teacher.
When she is in danger during a second pregnancy, Dr. Bashir puts the unborn child into Major Kira's womb, who carries the child for the O'Briens. As a thank you, they name the newborn boy Kirayoshi.
Curzon ( Frank Owen Smith ) is the predecessor of Jadzia as a Dax host. Among other things, he is a trainer and representative of the Trill and an old friend of Sisko . In the series he only appears as a memory of the following symbionts and Siskos. Through his work as the Federation's ambassador, he always maintained good relations with the Klingons and contributed to the success of the peace negotiations between the Federation and the Klingons.
Elim Garak, a Cardassian played by Andrew J. Robinson , is a tailor on Deep Space Nine. Not much is known about his past at first, as he always shrouds it in secrets and vague hints. Despite all warnings, Dr. Julian Bashir and Garak to learn more about Garak's life.
Accordingly, Garak worked for the Obsidian Order, the Cardassian secret service, before his time on DS9, where he was the right hand man of Enabran Tain, the head of the secret service. Tain was responsible for sending Garak into exile in Deep Space Nine. Enabran Tain is not only Garak's former boss, but also his father. The reasons for the differences are not explained.
While serving as an agent, Garak has faced numerous dubious missions. He himself indicated, for example, to have poisoned Proconsul Morok on Romulus while he was working as a gardener in the Cardassian embassy . On Deep Space Nine, he befriends Ziyal, Gul Dukat's illegitimate daughter. However, their relationship is ended by their tragic death. He is then responsible for another assassination attempt on a Romulan senator to get Romulus to join the war against the Dominion.
He is also responsible for the arrest and subsequent execution of Judge Procal, Gul Dukat's father.
Weyoun is actually the name of several Vorta played by Jeffrey Combs . In the Dominion it is customary for the founders to clone the Vorta - particularly successful models also several times. Although the devious politician always shows a similar personality and is exactly familiar with the biographies of his predecessors, they are not one and the same person. There were five Weyouns appearances in Deep Space Nine , most of them from Weyoun 5.
- Weyoun 4, already the fourth incarnation of his genetic material, is the vorta of a Jem'Hadar attack ship that is on the hunt for some renegades. He is very condescending towards the First Omet'iklan and forges a short-term alliance with Captain Sisko . After they jointly destroy an ancient Iconian gate, Omet'iklan kills the Vorta after questioning his loyalty to the Dominion.
- The next clone, Weyoun 5, is deployed as ambassador at Gul Dukat's side after DS9. He often has to do with Starfleet and tries outwardly to negotiate a ceasefire with the Federation. He is particularly delighted by Odo , whom he worships as a god against his will and tries to persuade him to return to the great connection of the founders . Later, after the Cardassians came to power on DS9, he managed the station together with Dukat and the founder, later flees with her to Cardassian territory and continues to work there in the administration of the Dominion. In 2375 he was killed in a transporter accident , most likely staged by Damar .
- After Weyoun 5 died in an accident, Weyoun 6 was immediately put into service. However, this new clone turns out to be "flawed" because it believes the Dominion's war against the Alpha Quadrant is a flaw. He deserted and provided Odo with information that was decisive for the war. In order to save Odo, because he would be destroyed with the ship, he kills himself in front of Weyoun 7, as this is seen as a sign of his loyalty. Then Odo is spared.
- Weyoun 7 is activated during the desertion of its predecessor and leads the hunt for it. After his suicide , he concentrates on the search for a cure for the founders and on forging an alliance with the Breen , who are supposed to turn the war with their energy damping weapons. At the end of 2375, Commander Worf and Ezri Dax get into his hands, but he is inattentive and the Klingon breaks his neck. Damar is very amused and sends the two officers home with news of an impending Cardassian rebellion.
- Weyoun 8 is activated punctually with the defection of Damar and his supporters to the Cardassian resistance movement and is fully dedicated to the merciless suppression of all rebels. He has Damar's family tracked down and executed, only to then drive the war effort to the maximum on behalf of the founder. Damar takes revenge on him by destroying the cloning facilities of the Dominion on Rondac III, making it impossible to create more Weyouns. When Dominion headquarters is stormed during the Battle of Cardassia, Garak shoots Weyoun 8 and is delighted to hear that he has just killed the last of the Weyouns.
Gul Dukat is a Cardassian officer, married and the father of a total of nine children, likes to drink red leaf tea and Bajoran spring wine.
He is played by Marc Alaimo , who previously had several supporting roles in Star Trek : a human, a Romulan and the first Cardassian to appear in Star Trek , Gul Macet.
He was stationed on Terok Nor (later Deep Space Nine) since 2352 during the Cardassian occupation of Bajor . In the same year he fathered his daughter Tora Ziyal, who was born in 2353, with the Bajoran Tora Naprem. In 2360 he was promoted to Prefect of Bajor and Commander of Terok Nor. After a murder case in which Kira Nerys was also involved, he put Odo as security chief over the station (2365). A year later he sent his Bajoran mistress and daughter to safety on the spacecraft Ravinok; the Ravinok disappeared without a trace. After Bajor was completely exploited, the Cardassians withdrew in 2369, and Gul Dukat was appointed Commander of the 2nd Order. The Federation took over the space station, named it Deep Space Nine, and placed it under the command of Benjamin Sisko . Shortly afterwards, the wormhole to the gamma quadrant and thus the Dominion was discovered.
After the fall of the Obsidian Order by the Dominion, the military government (central command) on Cardassia fell in 2371 . Through skillful political manipulation, Gul Dukat rose first to the position of military advisor to the civilian government (Detapa Council) and later to a legate. His illegitimate daughter, Ziyal, was found that same year. Since Dukat stood by her, contrary to Cardassian traditions, and did not kill her, his political career ended and he was demoted to freighter captain in 2372, the year of the Klingon invasion. On a mission with Major Kira Nerys , he captured a Klingon spaceship of the Bird of Prey type . Thereupon he deserted from the army and took up the sole fight against the Klingon Empire. Due to the hopelessness of the situation, Dukat entered into secret negotiations with the Vorta Weyoun , allied himself with the Dominion in 2373 and became head of the Cardassian government. Shortly afterwards, they recaptured the Deep Space Nine space station to give the Dominion secure access to the Alpha Quadrant. During later fighting, Dukat's daughter Ziyal was killed by his deputy Damar , and Dukat went mad.
Dukat was captured by Starfleet in 2374 and escaped while being transported to the trial. From now on he was fascinated by the belief of the Bajoran Pah spirits , the diabolical countervailing power of the prophets. Dukat killed Jadzia Dax on Deep Space Nine when, possessed by a Pah ghost, he tried to steal the rotating body kept there. He had himself surgically altered and took on the appearance of a Bajoran to persuade Kai Winn to release the Pah spirits . During the incantation in the Bajoran fire caves, he was poisoned by Kai Winn, but resurrected by the Pah spirits (now again in Cardassian guise) to subdue the Alpha Quadrant. Then there was a fight with Benjamin Sisko, Kai Winn was burned, Dukat and Sisko fell into the canyon of fire. However, Sisko is saved by the prophets. They tell him that Dukat is now with the Pah spirits and that they remain locked up in the caves for ever because of the destruction of Kosst Amojan.
Since positive traits always shine through in his character image, especially his charm, loyalty and generosity, Dukat is considered one of the most complex villains in the Star Trek universe. Like Mephisto , he wants to be loved and therefore encourages his fellow men wherever he sees an opportunity to draw them to his side. He also tried repeatedly to make things easier for the subjugated Bajorans. He is therefore not an instinctual sadist, but his cruelties are always rationally justified and purpose-oriented, which ultimately makes them appear all the more abysmal.
Kai Winn Adami
Kai Winn Adami, played by Oscar and Golden Globe winner Louise Fletcher , is the religious leader of the Bajoran people and successor to Kai Opaka. She is extremely ambitious and does not shy away from violence in order to achieve her goals. She spins numerous intrigues and tries, among other things, to have her rival Vedek Bareil killed. Kai Winn does not have a good relationship with the Federation and is anything but thrilled that with Captain Sisko , of all things , a Starfleet officer is the Prophet's envoy. In the end, Kai Winn is killed by Gul Dukat , who was taken over by a Pah spirit, in the fire caves on Bajor .
General Martok, played by John Garman Hertzler , is a Klingon warrior. He comes from a middle-class family, which prevented him from pursuing an officer career for years. He passed the military academy, but his application for the officer's license was denied due to his non-aristocratic origin. Affected with this stain, he first became a civilian. However, when he showed bravery aboard a spaceship, he was made an officer.
He later became a general and played an important role during the Klingon Civil War . He became an important advisor to Chancellor Gowron and was instrumental in promoting the Klingon invasion of Cardassia. However, it was determined that this Martok was a changeling that had replaced the real Martok to drive a wedge between the Klingons and the Federation .
The real Martok was living in a Dominion prison camp. Here he lost his left eye during a fight as a training object for Jem'Hadar soldiers. After his liberation by Worf and Elim Garak , he was appointed by Gowron as the Klingon military representative on Deep Space Nine , a task that initially made him uncomfortable because of the administrative work he was facing. During this time he and Worf became friends and Martok took him into his house.
Having become a hero through his deeds, Chancellor Gowron saw him as a competitor and increasingly entrusted him with hopeless assignments in order to discredit him. Eventually Gowron was killed by Worf in a duel and Martok was his successor in the Chancellery, a task that was actually not his job, since he saw himself as a warrior and not a politician.
Vedek Bareil Antos
Vedek Bareil, played by Philip Anglim , is a religious leader of the Bajoran people. He is running against Winn Adami for the office of Kai, but resigns to protect the reputation of his late predecessor Kai Opaka, who once betrayed a Bajoran rebel site to the Cardassians. In contrast to Kai Winn, Vedek Bareil is more progressive and has a good relationship with the Starfleet officers on Deep Space Nine. He is also in a relationship with Kira Nerys . Vedek Bareil is seriously injured in an accident on the way to peace negotiations with the Cardassians. Since he rejects necessary measures in favor of his obligations, he eventually dies.
Lieutenant Commander Michael Eddington
Eddington, played by Kenneth Marshall , was originally a lieutenant in Deep Space Nine security. Already in season 3, episode 21 (The Mysterious Garak - Part 2) he shows a tendency to blind loyalty when he sabotages the Defiant on the orders of Admiral Toddman during a mission in the Gamma Quadrant. For the time being, this behavior has no consequences for him. In season 4, episode 22 (On Our Own Cause), however, it turns out that he is now working as a spy for the Maquis. He manages to escape until he is arrested in Season 5, Episode 13 (For the Uniform) as promised by Sisko . After serving a prison sentence, he dies in season 5, episode 23 (The Shine of Fame) during the destruction of the Maquis by the Dominion .
Morn is a Lurian, a species from the world of Luria. He's not a member of the DS9 crew, but he's always important. Morn is said to be very communicative, but the viewer never hears him talking. A running gag is that the other characters keep reacting to him as if he were very talkative. There is no broadcast scene with Morn speaking; several were shot, but cut out. In the German dubbing of the episode Der Plan des Dominion (Season 2, Episode 26), Morn falsely uttered two sentences and sighs that did not appear in the original: "Oh, uh ..." and "Then not."
Morns importance is also made clear that an inherent DS9 episode ( Who Mourns for Morn? ; Engl. To mourn = mourn '-> "Who Mourns For Morn?"; Season 6 Episode 12) was dedicated, in the Actor can also be seen without a mask. He is the Bajoran who sits on Morn's chair at the memorial service in Quarks Bar to keep it “warm”.
Morn is played by the artist Mark Allen Shepherd , of whom there are also many pictures hanging in the quarters of the DS9 crew. The name Morn is an anagram to Norm , the bar's regular from the hit series Cheers with Ted Danson .
Legat Damar, formerly also Gul Damar, played by Casey Biggs , was Gul Dukat's officer and right-hand man until 2374 and was friends with him. During the siege of Deep Space Nine in 2374 by the Dominion , allied with the Cardassians , tension developed between them, triggered by the Vorta Weyoun . During an emergency evacuation of the space station, Damar shoots Dukat's daughter Ziyal after she confessed to her father that she was involved in an act of sabotage against the Dominion. After Dukat went insane as a result of his daughter's murder, Damar was named leader of the Cardassian Union. Together with Weyoun, he planned the conquest of the Federation in 2374 . However, since he had to give up more and more power to the Dominion in the presence of Weyoun and the founder in his own realm and lost his say, he increasingly fell for alcohol.
His dissatisfaction with his role and the Cardassias within the Dominion led him to defection in 2375 after the Dominion threatened to lose the war and a striking number of Cardassians lost their lives. Together with Kira Nerys and other members of the DS9 crew, he finally took part in targeted sabotage actions against the Dominion at the end of 2375. Angry, Dominion had Damar's wife and children killed. In the final weeks of the war, Damar led a resistance movement on Cardassia to drive the Dominion out. He fell in the process, but will be celebrated as a folk hero for a very long time.
The great Nagus Zek
Nagus Zek, played by Wallace Shawn , is the chief of the Ferengi people. The office of "Great Nagus" identifies Zek as prime minister as well as supreme priest and sole monarch of the Ferengi homeworld. He is very stingy, extremely greedy, chauvinistic and lustful and evaluates everything and everyone only according to whether it will bring him profit. Because this pursuit of profit is one of the most praiseworthy character traits in the Ferengi culture, Zek is revered by his people as extremely wise.
Usually he wears a golden cloak and a gnarled scepter, at the tip of which is the golden image of the first Great Nagus, Gint. Zek is very old and has ruled the Ferengi home planet for a long time. The Palace of the Great Nagus is the largest building on Ferenginar. After Gint and Smeet, Zek is the third “Great Nagus”. When he met Quark on Deep Space Nine, he was immediately taken with its greed for profit.
Brunt, played by Jeffrey Combs , is the liquidator of the Ferengi Trade Authority. He investigates, among other things, against Ishka, the mother of Quark and Rome, because she makes a profit, although Ferengi women are prohibited from doing business. Brunt developed a strong aversion to quark and made life difficult for him again and again. In addition, Brunt tried several times to usurp the office of Great Nagus, which he even succeeded for a short time. In the end, however, it is always Quark and his brother Rom who triumph over the scheming Brunt.
Vic Fontaine, played by James Darren , is arguably the most famous entertainment hologram in the Star Trek universe. He embodies a crooner in Las Vegas in the 1960s and appears in many episodes towards the end of DS9 . The Way You Look Tonight will be his last song on board Deep Space Nine in the final episode of the series. Vic's repertoire includes songs by Frank Sinatra , Duke Ellington and Dean Martin , among others .
In 2374, Vic and his Las Vegas club were created as a holosuit program for Bashir by his friend Felix. Vic is aware of the fact that it is a hologram and therefore calls himself a "light bulb". He quickly develops into an advisor for all situations and has given both Bashir and Odo advice on their love life. After Vic helped Ensign Nog get over his depression , he was given permission to remain permanently activated.
James Darren not only portrayed the character Vic Fontaine as an actor, but also sang all of the songs he performed in Deep Space Nine himself. The songs appeared on the album This One's from the Heart . The duet with Captain Sisko is not included on the album.
The figure pays homage to Frank Sinatra by being modeled on Sinatra's style. This is expressed, among other things, in the episode title Auf seine Kind (English His Way ), an allusion to Sinatra's song My Way .
Leeta, played by Chase Masterson , is a Bajoran dabo girl, a kind of animator for a Ferengi game in Quark's bar. She was originally involved in sociology before coming to the Deep Space Nine. There she had a year-long relationship with ward doctor Dr. Bashir. As the creator of the Emergency Medical Holographic Program (EMN), Dr. Lewis Zimmerman, who offered her to run the casino at Jupiter Station, was held back by Rome at the last moment, who confessed his love to her. Rome and Leeta later married and left the station together when Rome assumed the office of head of state (Great Nagus) on Ferenginar, the Ferengi homeworld.
It is believed that Leeta is the character's first name. A surname is not known.
Star Trek: Spaceship Voyager
Captain Kathryn Janeway
- Movie: X
Kathryn Janeway, played by Kate Mulgrew , is the captain on board Voyager.
Janeway was born on May 20, 2335 in Bloomington, Indiana, to Starfleet Admirals Edward Janeway and Gretchen Janeway. There she grew up with her sister Phoebe.
Kathryn Janeway served as a science officer on the USS Al-Batani, which was under the command of Owen Paris. In 2371 she was given command of the Voyager (Intrepid class) and shortly thereafter disappeared in the Badlands while chasing a Maquis ship. A being from another galaxy, who the crew of Voyager only knew under the name of carer / protector, transported ships from everywhere from the Delta Quadrant (75,000 light years from Earth) to find a successor for himself, the to protect the Ocampa people - including the Voyager and the Maquis ship. The Caregiver died before he could send her back, however, and Janeway destroyed his station to protect the Ocampa. So the Voyager and the Maquis ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Since the Maquis ship was destroyed while trying to defend the Ocampa, the two crews joined together to form a crew on the Voyager. Captain Janeway appointed the commander of the maquis ship Chakotay first mate, and together they embarked on the long voyage home.
Janeway saw it as her task to return to the alpha quadrant as quickly as possible and to always adhere to the highest directive, and therefore repeatedly foregoing faster options for the journey home. Janeway and her crew - for a long time the only representatives of the Federation in the Delta Quadrant - had numerous contacts with life forms previously unknown to the distant Federation on their way to the Alpha Quadrant.
In the two-part series finale endgame , in addition to Captain Janeway, an Admiral Janeway from a possible future appeared and, using future technology, made a decisive contribution to bringing the Voyager back home and seriously damaging the Borg by making the Voyager team with Admiral Janeway a trans - Destroyed the Borg Warp Center in the Delta Quadrant and smuggled a virus into the Borg collective.
Typical for Janeway is her replicator order "Coffee: black", a perfectly fitting hairstyle, a little impulsive but very self-confident demeanor and her recognizable attempt to be the commanding officer and confidante of the crew. In the early years of the mission, her severity was only softened when her personal longing for home and her fiancé, Mark Johnson, emerged. In the course of time the relationship with the occupation became more personal and almost familiar; she later learned that Mark had broken off the engagement and married.
Contrary to the actual rules of Starfleet, Captain Janeway doesn't want to be called "Sir". She accepts the salutation "Ma'am" if necessary, but would prefer to be addressed simply as "Captain".
Upon returning home from the Delta Quadrant, Captain Janeway was promoted to Vice Admiral; in this role in the movie Star Trek: Nemesis she gave Captain Picard the order to fly to Romulus.
Chakotay, played by Robert Beltran , is the first officer on board Voyager.
Chakotay was born in 2329 as the son of Kolopak and is of Indian descent ( Maya ). He has a tattoo on his left temple and forehead, which he wears in memory of his father. He got this from the rubber tree people. He can get in touch with the spirits with the help of an Indian ritual.
Chakotay and his father disagree about his future. Kolopak wants to teach his son the traditions of his people, while Chakotay wants to attend the Starfleet Academy.
Chakotay is initially an instructor in the advanced tactical training of Starfleet, before leaving after many years to join the Maquis. In this resistance movement he wants to stand up for his homeworld, which was handed over to the Cardassians; especially since his family was killed by the Cardassians when the conflict between the Federation and the Cardassians intensified. As the commander of a Maquis raider, he leads attacks against the Cardassians. When both his Maquis ship and the Voyager are torn into the Delta Quadrant by a being called the Caretaker, he is named Voyager's first officer. At the end of the series, that is, in the same year that Voyager can also return to the Alpha Quadrant (2378), Chakotay and the ex-Borg Seven of Nine enter into a relationship. In an alternative timeline, the two get married on Voyager.
Lieutenant Commander Tuvok
Tuvok, played by Tim Russ , is a Vulcan , security chief, tactical officer and at the same time the second officer on board Voyager.
Tuvok was born on Vulkan in 2264 . He married his wife T'Pel in 2304 and has three sons and a daughter, all of whom are grown up.
Tuvok taught as an instructor at Starfleet Academy for 16 years before secretly infiltrating the Maquis in 2371, where he served aboard Chakotay's ship, which was promoted to the Delta Quadrant by the Caregiver along with Voyager. Tuvok is not only a security officer, but also a close advisor and confidante of Janeway.
As a result of Tuvok's flashback , we learn that Tuvok had served in Starfleet many years earlier. He was an ensign on Sulu's ship, the Excelsior, at the time the Klingon moon Praxis exploded and Kirk and McCoy were incarcerated on the Klingon prison planet of Rura Penthe .
The character's expression goes back directly to another successful character in the Star Trek universe, namely Commander Spock .
Lieutenant Tom Paris
Thomas Eugene Paris, played by Robert Duncan McNeill , is a pilot on board Voyager.
Paris was born on Earth in 2340 and has been married to Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres (since 2377). He is the son of Admiral Owen Paris, a former mentor to Janeway, and has two older sisters. He was looking forward to an excellent career as a pilot in Starfleet when he caused a fatal accident during a training flight due to overconfidence in which three officers were killed. After the accident, he put the blame on one of his comrades killed in the accident. After that, however, he regretted it and confessed. He was dishonorably discharged from Starfleet. He later joined the Maquis until he was caught by Starfleet and imprisoned in the New Zealand penal colony. He was still there when Captain Janeway brought him on board Voyager as an advisor, hoping for information about the Maquis.
When Voyager disappeared into the Delta Quadrant, Janeway entrusted him with flight control and gave him the rank of lieutenant. Paris also had to help the MHN (medical holographic emergency program) in the infirmary, as he had taken two semesters of biochemistry at the academy. On the Voyager, he had problems integrating into the crew at the beginning due to his dismissive and slightly aggressive nature, but this changed later. One example is the close friendship with Harry Kim. During the return journey of the Voyager Paris was because of insubordination demoted to ensign, but was allowed to continue to control the spaceship. Before arriving on Earth, he was promoted back to lieutenant in the episode Unimatrix Zero (Part 1).
McNeill previously played the cadet Nicholas Locarno in TNG , who had an accident with Wesley Crusher very similar to the one mentioned above. The show's producers had considered reactivating the character for the Voyager crew, but decided against it in order to allow the character to be received in an unbiased manner by the audience. (They would also have had to pay royalties to the writer of the TNG Locarno episode for every Voyager episode.) So they created Tom Paris, but kept the breaks in the character's past.
Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres
B'Elanna Torres, played by Roxann Dawson , is the chief engineer on board the Voyager.
Torres was born around 2349 on the planet Kessik IV to the Klingon Miral and the man John Torres; her father leaves the family when she is just five years old. For a long time, her character has been characterized by internal struggles with her Klingon half, which on the one hand shapes her, on the other hand also weighs on her. During the course of the Voyager series, a love affair develops with Tom Paris, whom she eventually marries. Their daughter is named after B'Elanna's mother.
Torres served with the Maquis under Chakotay. When the Maquis crew joined Voyager, there was a disciplinary incident with their supervisor Lt. Carey. Nevertheless, Torres was appointed chief engineer - also because of her outstanding problem-solving skills.
Medical holographic emergency program
The EMH ( Emergency Medical Hologram ), played by Robert Picardo , is the medical holographic emergency program, the doctor on board the Voyager. Robert Picardo also appears as an EMH on the Enterprise-E in Star Trek: The First Contact and also appears in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series , in which he appears as Dr. Zimmerman can be seen.
The primary program of the MHN was carried out in the Jupiter station by Dr. Lewis Zimmerman (who created the MHN in his own image). After all of Voyager's medical personnel were killed in the ship's forcible passage into the Delta Quadrant, the doctor became the only medical care option. The doctor has mastered more than 5,000,000 treatment methods and has 2,000 medical references and the experience of 47 doctors. As part of the increased requirements on the Voyager, the MHN will be supplemented with various subroutines in the course of the series. This expands the MHN to include multiple abilities, e.g. For example: music (he likes to sing operas), literature (he writes his own holo-novel) or tactics (as an emergency command hologram NKH he is even able to control the entire ship). He is also able to form social bonds. So he falls in love with Seven of Nine, but only admits this in one of the last episodes, assuming that his program would decompile. He also receives his own rights (independent deactivation, use of the holodeck) and can make independent decisions. With the help of an autonomous mobile holo-emitter from the 29th century, which he receives in the double episode 50/51 ( Before the End of the Future ), he can also enter areas outside the ship's internal holo-emitter and even take part in foreign missions. The doctor has no name, but keeps thinking about possible names, for example Zimmerman, Schweitzer or Schmullus. At the end of the series, in an alternate reality, he chooses the name Joe. He first recruits Kes, who teaches him social etiquette so he can better understand his patients, and encourages him to expand on his original programming. After Kes' departure, he has to fall back on Tom Paris, who took a medical course at the academy, and trains him to be a medical assistant.
The doctor has one of his most interesting appearances in episode 170 ( Renaissance Mensch ), in which, thanks to his skills, he is able to stun and replace various crew members of the Voyager. He even overpowers Tuvok and steals Voyager's warp core with the aim of freeing the captured Captain Janeway.
In the course of the series there are also several critical situations for the EMH, because the holo-matrix is overloaded with his additional skills and there is a risk of decompilation, or because he is stuck in a feedback loop due to a malfunction and can no longer perform his doctor's work .
A particularly interesting aspect of the role is the fact that it is a computer program: As soon as part of its program is changed, this has a direct impact on its character. That makes it many times more efficient in the best case, and unscrupulous in the worst case. An example of this can be found in the double sequence “Equinox” when his ethical subroutines are deleted, so that he has no concerns about carrying out a potentially brain-damaging experiment on Seven of Nine.
Particularly noteworthy is the doctor's appreciation for holograms. In the Delta Quadrant, he supports a merger of free holograms, or campaigns for the rights of holograms and their recognition as forms of life in Starfleet. In the last episode, in the future of an alternate reality, he is portrayed as a man married to a humanoid woman.
Ensign Harry Kim
Harry SL Kim, played by Garrett Wang , is the operations manager aboard Voyager.
Kim was born in South Carolina in 2349 and grew up in Monterey, California .
He is the male baby of the Voyager's senior officers. He is usually one of those who euphorically receives any news about a possible early return of Voyager, forgetting any sense of risk and failure. Due to his naive nature, he is forgiven for one or two mistakes by Captain Janeway in the course of the series. His passion is playing the clarinet . During the first few seasons he developed a close friendship with Tom Paris. It comes (together with Naomi Wildman) from a phase-shifted copy of the Voyager, which was made while trying to get past the Vidiians unnoticed. Since his counterpart dies on the Voyager, he changes ship with the newborn Naomi, before one crew sacrifices itself and causes self-destruction, whereby the other can escape the Vidiians. He is often referred to as "Starfleet" by B'Elanna Torres.
In the series he often falls in love, for example with the supposed hologram Marayna, Seven of Nine , Ensign Lyndsay Ballard and the alien Derran Tal.
In the two-part series finale Endgame , Harry Kim appears in an alternate future as the captain of the USS Rhode Island.
Seven of Nine
Seven of Nine, played by Jeri Ryan , is a Voyager crew member who mainly does scientific work. Her full Borg name is "Seven of Nine, Tertiary Attribute of Unimatrix 01". She makes her Borg knowledge available and works in the astrometric laboratory (stellar cartography).
Seven was born on June 23, 2348 (stardate 25479) in the Tendara colony as Annika Hansen. Her parents were scientists who devoted themselves to the study of the Borg and thanks to a camouflage system ("multi-adaptive shield") developed by Seven's father, which, among other things, concealed bio-signatures, could follow the Borg everywhere and move undetected within their ships. So it happened that one day with their ship USS Raven (NAR-32450) they followed a Borg cube through a transwarp channel into the Delta Quadrant. After an ion storm, the camouflage system was disrupted and the Hansens discovered by the cube. Badly damaged, their ship crashed on a planet and the Hansens were assimilated. The assimilated parents can be seen at the end of the episode The Uncertain Darkness (Part 2).
Seven came aboard on a joint mission with the Borg and Voyager. The goal of this mission was to destroy Species 8472 using modified nanoprobes, as the Borg realized that Species 8472 was too powerful to be assimilated and posed a threat to the Borg. They even sacrificed an entire Borg cube to protect the Voyager and the nanoprobes in the Voyager. Seven of Nine was one of the few Borg aboard Voyager. She was the only one to be "deassimilated" and integrated into the crew of Voyager. This is addressed in the double episode Scorpio .
Like all Borg, she strives for perfection and considers human impulses to be irrelevant until she gradually develops human traits and feelings herself. Towards the end of the series, she falls into a love affair with Voyager's first officer, Commander Chakotay. In an alternate timeline, she marries Chakotay, but dies in his arms as a result of serious injuries sustained on an outside mission.
Her singing and her piano playing are considered perfect.
In Star Trek: Picard , Seven continues to be played by Jeri Ryan and is a leading member of the Fenris Ranger, a kind of self-appointed vigilante group that ensures order and justice "on their own".
Neelix, played by Ethan Phillips , is the self-proclaimed "moral officer" and "unearthly cook" aboard Voyager. Later he also held the post of ambassador. He knows best about the foods of the Delta Quadrant. That's why he's always eager for new creations that come close to the taste of the Alpha Quadrant crew. At the beginning of the journey through the Delta Quadrant, he rendered Captain Janeway valuable services as a guide by providing information about various races and star systems.
The talkative Talaxian has a strong emotional relationship with the Ocampa Kes. With the help of the Voyager crew, he rescues them from the hands of the Kazon. However, Kes later ended this relationship. It is learned that his hometown, one of the moons of Talax, was made uninhabitable by a hostile people through the Metrion Cascade . Neelix lost his family in the process. When Voyager encounters a Talaxian refuge in an asteroid field, Neelix decides to leave Voyager and help the Talaxians. However, he still remains in contact with the crew. He is also the godfather of Naomi Wildman .
Kes, played by Jennifer Lien , is the second representative of a species native to the Delta Quadrant on Voyager. She is an ocampa , so she belongs to the species that was cared for by the caregiver. Your species lives in subterranean cavities on the first planet that Voyager flies to after its transfer to the Delta Quadrant.
Your species has the ability to develop certain psychic powers (including telekinesis and telepathy ). The forces break out at Kes and threaten to destroy the ship - then she leaves Voyager. As a parting gift, Kes uses her powers to propel Voyager ten thousand light years back home. She has a love affair with Neelix that later breaks up. She later returns to Voyager to destroy it in the past for blaming Captain Janeway for her isolation from the Ocampa. But she realizes that she wanted her own development and finally travels on.
Seska, played by Martha Hackett , was operated on as a Cardassian and agent of the Obsidian Order to Bajoran in 2370 to infiltrate the Maquis cell of Chakotay . The project worked and she even started a relationship with Chakotay.
In 2371 she is pulled into the Delta Quadrant with the Maquis ship, the Maquis raider being destroyed and the crew being picked up by Voyager. There she works in the engine room and is inclined to mutiny from the start.
She later made contact with the Kazon and eventually joined the head of the Kazon Nistrim sect, Culluh. Here, too, she uses her seduction skills to manipulate Culluh. At this time she begins to restore her Cardassian physiognomy.
After luring Chakotay into an ambush from which he can escape, Seska allegedly has a child from him. It claims to have been fertilized with stolen DNA .
After the Kazon took over Voyager, Seska learns from the doctor that her son is from Culluh. Seska dies while trying to save her baby.
Ensign Samantha Wildman
Samantha Wildman, played by Nancy Hower , was transferred to Voyager in 2371. She is married to the Ktarian Greskrendtregk, who was on the space station Deep Space Nine before Voyager disappeared.
She works as a xenobiologist on Voyager.
In the Delta Quadrant, Ensign Wildman has a daughter, Naomi Wildman, on stardate 49548 (2372).
Naomi Wildman, played by Scarlett Pomers , Brooke Ashley Stephens and Vanessa Branch , was born in 2372 (stardate 49548) to Samantha Wildman and Greskrendtregk. Half-Ktarian and half-human, she is the first baby to see the light of day on Voyager.
She was born under extremely bizarre circumstances about two years after the Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant: she died when she was born on the Voyager, but was sent back to the Voyager from a phase-shifted copy of the spaceship. Her father was on Deep Space Nine before the ship disappeared .
Her mother's inheritance makes Naomi largely human, but the center of her forehead is adorned with a Ktarian feature, a series of curved bone spikes. Their exceptional physiology makes them grow very quickly. Naomi spends a lot of time with her godfather Neelix and with Seven of Nine , who becomes her role model.
The Vulcan Vorik, played by Alexander Enberg , was born in Raal auf Vulkan in 2350. In 2370 he finished the Starfleet Academy. Before being transferred to Voyager, he was stationed on USS Independence NCC-41452. Like all Vulcans, he has latent telepathic abilities, but due to his youth, these are not yet very well developed and rather untamed.
Before pursuing a career in Starfleet, he spent a long time exploring the Osana Caverns. He was already assigned his future companion, with whom he was to connect with his first Pon Farr.
However, he experienced his first Pon Farr on the stranded Voyager. Far from his actual companion, he explains to B'Elanna Torres “kunat so'lik”. The Pon Farr can only be solved by both of them through a final fight.
Icheb, played by Manu Intiraymi , is a youth who is freed from the Borg collective by the Voyager crew . He belongs to the Brunali people. The Voyager crew manage to locate Icheb's home planet and bring him back to his parents, but it turns out that Icheb was conceived with the sole purpose of destroying the Borg collective with a virus in his DNA . Before his parents manage to send him back to the Borg, Icheb is rescued by Voyager and accepted into the crew.
Icheb considers Seven of Nine his mentor and spends a lot of time with her. Captain Janeway wrote a recommendation for him for the Starfleet Academy. Despite his youth, he has a great deal of knowledge, not least through his time in the Borg collective, and works on the Voyager mostly in the astrometric laboratory.
In the episode No Mercy in the series Star Trek: Picard , the adult Icheb is played by Casey King : In 2386, Icheb on the planet Freecloud is fully conscious and the Borg implants are removed. Seven comes to his rescue, but he is already dying, so she shoots him out of pity.
Star Trek: Enterprise
Captain Jonathan Archer
Jonathan Archer is portrayed by Scott Bakula . Archer is the captain of this trip after his father, Henry Archer, did most of the work on the new Warp-5 drive.
Archer was one of the test pilots for new drives and made a name for himself early on. He is a water polo fan and is the only one who has a pet, a dog named Porthos , on board.
He also plays an unspecified important role in the establishment of the federation . This important role is also indicated again and again when Archer sporadically meets the time traveler and former crewman Daniels. In the Star Trek movie , it is mentioned that Archer was promoted to Admiral during his career.
T'Pol is played by Jolene Blalock . Subcommander T'Pol is the female Vulcan science, liaison and first officer aboard the Enterprise.
It was put to Archer's side to save him from making hasty decisions based on his human emotions. There is heavy tension between the two at the beginning. Archer distrusts her and all Vulcans, but this is gradually easing.
At the beginning of the Xindi mission, T'Pol is advised by her superiors to leave the Enterprise and take a position on Vulkan. However, she decides against their wishes and resigns from the Vulcan high command to accompany the crew of the Enterprise into the expansion and to prevent the attack of the Xindi. Although there is some tension with "Trip" at the beginning, she has a relationship with him towards the end of the series, but it doesn't last.
The character's expression has other successful characters from the Star Trek universe as precursors, namely Lieutenant Commander Tuvok and Mister Spock .
Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III
Trip is portrayed by Connor Trinneer . Trip is the chief engineer of the Enterprise and the closest friend of Jonathan Archer. The two met early on in the Warp 5 program when Archer was the test pilot of the first spaceship with this new engine (it reached a speed of over Warp 2). He was nicknamed "Trip" because both his father and his grandfather were called Charles Tucker, so he was the third (from English " triple ") with the same name. He lost his sister in the attack on Earth by the Xindi. During season 3, he had a relationship with Commander T'Pol. In the fourth season, the human faction Terra Prime created a baby with Trip and T'Pol's genes, because they wanted to bring about an upheaval because of the expected genetic intermingling with other species. This baby was found to be non-viable because a flawed method was used in creating it. However, it should be noted that humans and Vulcans can have viable offspring together (e.g. the semi-Vulcan Spock). T'Pol names the girl Elizabeth, after Trip's sister who was killed. In the final episode, Commander Tucker sacrifices himself on the eve of the founding of the Federation to save Captain Archer by detonating a plasma line, killing Shran's enemies who had invaded the Enterprise.
Trip's death was not originally planned. The final episode of Enterprise is very controversial, it was written by Rick Berman to bring the series to an end. The actual screenwriter Manny Coto had other plans. Producer Rick Berman was fired in 2006 for blaming Enterprise's demise .
In the later Romulan War novels and the "Rise of the Federation" novels, it is learned that Trip was faked as he was enlisted by Section 31 to sabotage a Romulan Warp 7 program. However, these novels cannot be assigned to the series canon.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed
Malcolm Reed is played by Dominic Keating . Malcolm is the Enterprise's weapons officer, making him one of the few who are more concerned with arming than exploring the unknown. He comes from an English military family. Due to his decision to join Starfleet instead of the British Navy, his relationship with his father in particular is very tense.
Reed leads a very orderly and organized life. Very little is known about him as a person, as he hardly reveals anything - one episode desperately tries to find out what his favorite food is. He developed an early form of the force field while traveling on the Enterprise.
Reed comes into contact with a secret Starfleet organization in several episodes of the fourth season. This is believed to be a precursor to Section 31.
Ensign Hoshi Sato
Hoshi Sato is played by Linda Park . Hoshi is the Enterprise communications officer of Ensign rank. She was released from Starfleet to teach at a university in Brazil, but was persuaded by Captain Archer because of her linguistic skills to transfer to the Enterprise, as he needed her to contact the Klingons. Curiously, she suffers from claustrophobia and space sickness . She holds the black belt in Aikido and speaks over 40 languages, including Denobulan, German, English, French, Japanese, Klingon , Russian and Vulcan.
Ensign Travis Mayweather
Travis Mayweather is portrayed by Anthony Montgomery . Travis is the pilot of the Enterprise. He grew up on a freighter (Horizon) and has therefore already got to know a wide variety of species. Despite his family's concerns, he left the cargo ship to go to Starfleet instead of taking over the family freighter.
That of John Billingsley Dr played Phlox is the Enterprise's ship's doctor. He is a Denobulan and therefore one of the few non-humans on board. He is married to three women, who in turn are married to other men, which is normal for Denobulans (see polygamy ). He spends most of his life on the Enterprise in the infirmary, as Denobulans need very little sleep (instead they need 6 days of hibernation in a row). He is a brilliant doctor who, in addition to the standard medical methods, also often performs treatments with the help of some extraterrestrial beings that he keeps in the infirmary. He is particularly interested in the completely inexplicable interpersonal behavior, which he likes to study at film evenings, for example. He is one of the few people on board who is almost always in a good mood.
Porthos is the young, black-white-brown beagle from Captain Archer . He likes to eat cheese, even though he can't stand it. Nevertheless, he always manages to beg some from the captain, despite the concerns that the ship's doctor reports Phlox to Archer. In Star Trek (2009), Montgomery Scott mentions that he had been transferred to Admiral Archer's beloved Beagle into the unknown during a transporter experiment. If that meant Porthos, however, it would have exceeded the normal life expectancy for dogs many times over.
Degra, played by Randy Oglesby , is the Xindi's chief scientist . He develops a weapon capable of destroying an entire planet. The goal of the Xindi is the destruction of the earth and mankind. The reason for this will are the messages of the sphere builders from another dimension about the future, which predict the annihilation of the Xindi by humanity, should it not be erased in the 22nd century. When Degra realizes that the Sphere Builders have clearly different plans than the rescue of the Xindi and that humanity is in no way threatening the Xindi, he allies himself with Archer against the Sphere Builders and some of the Xindi who do not believe him. Shortly afterwards, he is murdered by a Xindi reptilian.
Thy'lek Shran (played by Jeffrey Combs ; German voice: Udo Schenk ) is an Andorian commander in the Imperial Guard and in command of the Imperial warship Kumari in the mid-2150s. Although Shran and Archer seem very different, they are getting to know and appreciate each other more and more.
Shran had an older brother who volunteered for the Imperial Guard when Shran was in school. When it was first used at an observation post, he was killed by Vulcans.
Vice Admiral Maxwell Forrest
Vice Admiral Maxwell Forrest, played by Vaughn Armstrong , is Captain Archer's immediate superior with Earth Star Fleet . As a Commodore he was significantly involved in the first test phases of the Warp -5 programs and the NX program . A friendship with Captain Archer resulted from this time. Forrest decided, against the warning of the Vulcans , to send the Enterprise on its journey in 2151 . Later, again against the urgent advice of the Vulcans, he sent Archer and his crew to the Xindi .
He died in an attack on the earthly embassy on Vulkan in 2154 while saving the life of the Vulcan ambassador Soval.
Maxwell Forrest is named after DeForest Kelley , who played Dr. McCoy, who died in 1999.
Dr. Arik Soong
Dr. Arik Soong, played by Brent Spiner , is a doctor and geneticist. He was the director of a secret research station in which the embryos of genetically engineered humans ( augments ) from the Eugenic Wars were stored. He stole some of them and raised them in another place. Years later he was caught and imprisoned on earth. When the Enterprise got the order to recapture the escaped Augments and Archer got Soong out of prison for it, his "children" managed to free him. However, when Soong found the Augments had become too aggressive, he helped Archer hunt them down and was eventually re-imprisoned.
After discovering that genetics led to a dead end, he turned to cybernetics to eventually create the perfect android .
With this reference and his name, Arik Soong was laid out as the ancestor of Noonien Soong, the builder of Data. However, it was never mentioned whether he had biological offspring. So the fans speculated that Dr. Noonien Soong could also be a clone of the geneticist. It was also suggested that the two were the same person, as the episodes in which Arik Soong appeared mentioned that he wanted to go to the Briar Patch, a region where a planet with rejuvenating effects exists (see Star Trek: The Uprising ).
Soval, played by Gary Graham , is a Vulcan and ambassador for his homeworld on earth. He was one of the strongest opponents of the Enterprise's launch into space and believes that humanity is not yet ready to venture into space. He is very distrustful of people and his relationship with Captain Archer is not the best either. He accuses the latter of acting too impulsively and too hastily. Later on, their relationship improved, especially when Archer mediated between the Vulcans and the Andorians after they had been at war for a long time.
Silik, played by John Fleck , is a genetically improved Suliban . His species doesn't actually have any special skills or technologies, but some of them, grouped together in a special army, the Cabal, received medical knowledge to genetically manipulate beings from the future with whom they communicate. These beings are in the so-called Temporal Cold War, for which they need the Suliban as executors in the 22nd century, a time that represents one of the fronts in this conflict. Silik receives his commands from one of these beings, but this cannot travel through time by itself. Silik's actions and missions are not always transparent, as he sometimes seems to come to the aid of the Enterprise or Captain Archer ; but it is likely that the federation is also one of the opponents of Silik's mysterious clients.
Silik was given the job of catching a Klingon because he had information about the Cabal and the war. But since he failed due to the intervention of Captain Archers and the Enterprise, some of his genetically implanted abilities were temporarily taken from him, through which he could, for example, make himself invisible, change his body shape or survive in the vacuum of space.
Later he had the assignment to save the Enterprise from destruction and to steal a device for monitoring the future from the possession of Crewman Daniels , which failed.
In a changed past during World War II , the Na'kuhl, another party in the Temporal Cold War, had helped the Nazis defeat the Allies and conquer part of the United States . When Captain Archer was stranded in this reality changed by the Temporal Cold War, Silik helped him to set the time right again and to come back into his presence. His mission was successful, but Silik was killed in the process.
Crewman Daniels, played by Matt Winston , is initially a simple crew member on board the Enterprise. As it turns out later, however, he is actually a temporal agent from the 31st century who works for a future federation organization that ensures that none of the various parties changes past events to their benefit in the so-called Temporal Cold War. By his own admission, he's just 'more or less' human. His name also seems to be just a pseudonym .
Daniels was sent into the past because some events of the 22nd century, in which the Enterprise is involved, represent a front in the Temporal Cold War and he has to help Captain Archer with various actions. He fights particularly against the Suliban under the leadership of Silik , as they are significantly involved in the time manipulation.
Later he helps Archer in the fight against the Xindi , who got the information from another party in the war, the so-called Sphere Builders , that the Federation would be responsible for the destruction of their race in the future.
Daniel's last mention and also the termination of the Temporal Cold War was when he prevented the Na'kuhl from changing the past on Earth during World War II .
Crewman Elizabeth Cutler
Elizabeth Cutler, played by Kellie Waymire , is a human and ordinary crew member aboard the Enterprise. She is a trained entomologist and exobiologist, which is why she participates in various foreign missions. Later she lets Dr. Train Phlox to be a medic. In her private life, too, she feels drawn to the Denobulan ship's doctor, which worries him, as the men of his species are very reluctant to approach them.
Kellie Waymire died of cardiac arrest at the age of only 36, so her character was not granted any further development.

Other figures and beings
Some characters in the Star Trek universe cannot be assigned to a specific film or series. They appear again and again across series and films.
In the 24th century, Kahless the Unforgettable became a legend. More than 1500 years ago he founded what is now the Klingon Empire. He is said to have thrown one of his curls into the lava of the Kristak volcano and then cooled it down in Lake Lursor. With this mass he formed the first blade. With this blade he then defeated the tyrant Molor, because he did not want to live under his rule, and united the kingdom with this act.
Another story tells how he fought twelve days and twelve nights against his brother for killing his father. In this part of the legends it becomes clear how interpretation-dependent these stories are, because according to the legend Kahless cried when he received the news that his brother killed his father and threw his sword into the sea. In fact, however, it is impossible for a Klingon to cry because he lacks the tear ducts.
Kahless taught the Klingons to fight not only for the blood, but to see battle as part of every Klingon and as a way to enrich one's mind. The Kot'baval festival is held every year in his honor.
Before Klingons go into battle, they often pray to Kahless that they may honorably fall in battle and share a place with Kahless in the Sto-vo-kor. Before Kahless left, he promised to return sometime; When he made this promise, he pointed to a star in the sky and said, “Look for me there. At this point of light. ”This point of light is a sun, in whose system there is only one inhabitable planet called Boreth. When the Klingons ventured into space, they built a temple on this planetoid, which has since become a pilgrimage site for thousands of Klingons.
Klingons keep trying to get visions of Kahless using special techniques. When Worf (at that time security officer on the USS Enterprise-D) visits Boreth on stardate 46852.2, Kahless appears to him in the temple exactly 1547 years after his death. When he told how he formed his first bat'leth, a story known only to the highest clergy, and after a positive DNA comparison was carried out, there was no longer any doubt that this was the real Kahless who has returned from the Sto-vo-kor to lead the Klingon Empire again. Later on, however, the investigation found that it was just a clone of the real Kahless, created by the priests of the temple to lead the Klingon empire back into more glorious times.
Though just a copy of the real Kahless, he was named Emperor by the High Council in 2369. As an emperor he only has representative functions, but can serve as a spiritual leader for the people.
Kahless was portrayed in Starship Enterprise by Robert Herron and as his clone in Starship Enterprise by Kevin Conway .
In Spaceship Enterprise , Khan Noonien Singh ( Ricardo Montalbán , in Star Trek Into Darkness Benedict Cumberbatch ) is portrayed as a holdover from the eugenic wars of the 20th century. He is a genetically upgraded person who has been in cold sleep since 1996, as have the rest of his followers. However, 200 years later he was brought out of the cold slumber by the Federation ship Enterprise . In the German version, however, Khan has only been in cold sleep since 2096. After a failed takeover of the ship, Khan was abandoned with the rest of his crew on a class M planet (Ceti-Alpha V). In the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan , Khan escapes the planet and seeks revenge on his arch-rival James T. Kirk . After this fails, Khan dies in the explosion of the Genesistorpedo. In the alternate timeline since the production year 2009, after waking from cold sleep, Khan was used by Section 31, a secret branch of Starfleet, to develop new weapon technology. Section 31 blackmailed him into keeping his crew members in stasis. He therefore wants to take revenge on Starfleet.
Based on the experience with Khan and his allies, the Federation is generally suspicious of eugenically enhanced people (such as Dr. Bashir ).
Q is a being that belongs to an almost omnipotent species of the same name. As such, it can change time, space and matter almost at will.
Q brings the crew of the Enterprise to justice on his first contact with humanity in the first episode of the Star Trek series . The charge is "humans are an unusually wild race". He demands proof from the crew that they have evolved, otherwise he would wipe out humanity. Although the crew passes this test, it turns out that charges are never dropped. In the last episode, Yesterday - Today - Tomorrow , Picard finds himself in front of the judge again.
This Q is also responsible for the initial contact - previous contacts are not known or have been forgotten at this point - with the Borg by temporarily moving the Enterprise D into the Delta Quadrant and thus preparing the Federation for an attempt at assimilation. Only because of Captain Picard's admission that mankind is not prepared for what is to come in space, he sends the crew back. He has a special relationship with the crew of the Enterprise-D. He likes to insult Worf or allude to Captain Picard's French origins . On the Voyager he tried several times in vain to seduce Captain Janeway . The only person Q has respect for is Guinan. However, it is unclear why Guinan is able to stand up to Q. Q has a habit of wearing a wide variety of disguises. His preferred disguise when in contact with humans is the uniform of a Starfleet Captain.
The regularly recurring Q is portrayed by John de Lancie .
Lt. W. Thomas Riker
Lt. W. Thomas Riker (also Jonathan Frakes ), a 2nd version of Cmdr. William T. Riker, which was caused by a van accident. Both are genetically identical, so no one can say who is the original and who is the copy of the other.
In the series Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century he only appears in one episode. He appears again as a member of the Maquis in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine , where he is captured by the Cardassians during an attack on the Obsidian Order . For this attack, he hijacked the USS Defiant, which he succeeded in posing as his own "brother" William Riker.
Ambassador Sarek (played by Mark Lenard , in Star Trek XI by Ben Cross , in Star Trek: Discovery by James Frain ) is the father of Spock . He is a Vulcan ambassador who has successfully represented the Federation in many important negotiations (e.g .: Conference of Babel, 2268). He was married to a Vulcan princess and later married twice to a human woman. The son of Sarek with the Vulcan princess is Sybok. He fathered Spock with his first human wife and his second can be seen in the episode Ambassador Sarek ( TNG ). In the same episode, there is also a mental fusion between Sarek and Picard as it gives Sarek emotional stability and thus alleviates the symptoms of Bendii syndrome (a disease that apparently can affect Vulcans over 200 years old). A year later, Sarek finally succumbs to Bendii syndrome and dies as a result. Reunification? (1) (TNG) , which takes place in 2368. In addition, in the early 23rd century he was the foster father for Michael Burnham, who lost her parents in an attack by the Klingons, making them the first person to receive a volcanic education.
Surak represented by Barry Atwater and Bruce Gray , is the foundation of today's volcanic IDIC philosophy ( u nendliche M annigfaltigkeiten in u nendlichen K ombinationen). During the times of war, when the Vulcans almost self-destructed, he introduced peace and logic into Vulcan culture and society. Had it not been for Surak, the Vulcans would either no longer exist or would still be a barbaric and (self) destructive people who only pursue their passions.
Dr. Zefram Cochrane (played by James Cromwell ) appears in the movie Star Trek: First Contact , in the pilot of ENT and in a scene in ENT ( The Dark Side of the Mirror, Part I ) and (played by Glenn Corbett ) in TOS . He is considered to be the inventor of the warp drive on earth, and the Cochrane physical warp field unit is named after him.
Cochrane was born on Earth in 2030. During and after World War III, he built mankind's first warp drive. In 2063 he finished his work in Bozeman , Montana, on the Phoenix , a Titan V nuclear missile converted into a spaceship. A Borg sphere travels in Star Trek: The first contact in the year 2063, to the first warp flight through destruction to prevent the phoenix. This can be prevented by the intervention of the Enterprise-E under Captain Jean-Luc Picard, with the help of the crew the Phoenix is repaired. Cochrane, known as a whiskey drinker and rock 'n' roll fan, takes off on April 5, 2063 for the first human space flight with Warp 1, thereby prompting the Vulcans to contact humans. Cochrane makes the first contact as "ambassador" of the earth. The Warpflug thus also laid the foundation for the later founding of the Federation of United Planets.
In 2117, Zefram Cochrane disappears from Alpha Centauri at the age of 87. He will be pronounced dead from that point on. In 2267 the crew of the Enterprise NCC 1701 under Captain James T. Kirk discovered him after an emergency landing of a space shuttle on an unknown planet. As it turns out, he was rejuvenated by a "cloud creature" he calls a "Companion". Kirk offers Cochrane to take him with him, but Cochrane decides to stay on the planet with the Companion.
B-4 (spoken: bi-'for; comparable to English before "before") is one of Dr. Noonien Soong built Android. B-4 ( Brent Spiner ) is a forerunner of the well-known android Data and its brother Lore. The crew of the USS Enterprise-E finds the dismantled android on Kolarus III, a planet near the (Romulan) Neutral Zone. Outwardly, B-4 appears to be identical to Data, only its positronic brain is far less mature. Data's previous model was modified by Shinzon to steal communications protocols from the Enterprise. This would have given Shinzon the locations of all Starfleet ships.
B-4's activities are discovered by the crew, however, and so Lieutenant Commander Data can be smuggled onto the Scimitar with false information while B-4 is decommissioned. After the victory of the Enterprise-E over the Scimitar, which costs Data's life, B-4 is activated again. Before his death, Data had, with the captain's consent, dumped all of his memory in B-4. At first there is no noticeable change in his simple behavior, but later Captain Picard can see signs of Data's knowledge in B-4.
In the TNG episode Soong's Legacy , however, Data's successor model Juliana Tainer reports on three previous models before Data and Lore, all of which were allegedly destroyed due to unstable positronic matrices.
Boothby ( Ray Walston ) is the gardener for Starfleet Academy and Starfleet Headquarters in San Francisco. He assisted several people from Starfleet during their time at the academy. a. Jean-Luc Picard and Kathryn Janeway. Picard calls him one of the wisest men he has ever known.
Alexander, played in his various ages by Jon Steuer , Brian Bonsall and Marc Worden , is the son of Worf and the half- klingon K'Ehleyr. Worf only learns of the existence of his son shortly before K'Ehleyr's death and sends him to his own parents Sergey and Helena Rozhenko. But when they can't cope with the boy's impulsive nature, Worf brings him to the Enterprise. Here the father is quickly overwhelmed with raising children because Alexander is not willing to embark on a career as a warrior. So Alexander is sent to his grandparents again. As a result, Alexander and his father lose sight of each other for years and only see each other again when Alexander meets his father on a Klingon ship after visiting the military academy. After the two have reconciled, Alexander becomes his father's best man at his wedding to Jadzia Dax .
In an alternate timeline, Alexander will be responsible for his father's death because of his pacifist nature in this future, so that he, portrayed by James Sloyan , travels back in time to kill his childish self.
Commander Kurn, played by Tony Todd , is a Klingon and the biological brother of Worf . Unlike Worf, he grew up with Klingons and has pursued a career in the military . He is more familiar with the conditions in the Klingon homeworld than his brother, but has to bow to his older brother when making family decisions. In contrast, he has a higher military rank than Worf and is its commanding officer, as Worf takes part in the Klingon civil war.
Because of his services in this war, Kurn was given a position in the Klingon High Council, but later lost it again when Worf took on Chancellor Gowron during the Klingon invasion of Cardassia .
Disgraced and deprived of his honor in this way, Kurn begs his brother to kill him. This fails and Kurn becomes a security officer on Deep Space Nine for a short time . When this is just as unsatisfactory and he tries to be killed in battle, Worf finally has Dr. Bashir to give Kurn a new identity. As a result, he has no more memories of Worf and his previous life, because both his appearance and his DNA have been changed, and his memory has been erased. This enables him to continue to lead an honorable life.
Gowron, played by Robert O'Reilly , is a Klingon politician and long-time Chancellor of the High Council. After the death of Chancellor K'mpec, he becomes his successor, also because his competitor Duras was killed by Worf . The follow-up rite is overseen by Captain Picard .
In the Klingon civil war, he can stand against his opponents, who fight under the leadership of the Duras sisters Lursa and B'Etor , and consolidate the empire. However, through his ambition and obsession with power, he lets himself be carried away again and again to daring and questionable decisions. After the annexation of Cardassia by the Klingons, he terminated the treaty with the federation and risks a war. But after Cardassia joins the Dominion , he seeks contact with the Federation again.
After seeing his position as Chancellor endangered by General Martok's successes in battles , he repeatedly sends him on hopeless missions to discredit Martok, but Martok always returns victorious. Thereupon Worf openly doubts his abilities and it comes to a duel in the course of which Gowron is killed. His successor as chancellor will eventually be Martok, as Worf renounces his right to the chancellorship.
Dr. Carol Marcus
The molecular biologist Dr. Carol Marcus is introduced in the second film, Wrath of Khan . Kirk had a son with her named David, who was murdered by Klingons in the third film on the Genesis planet. She reappears in Into Darkness as the daughter of Admiral Alexander Marcus; there, however, she is an expert on weapons. It is sometimes assumed that the character is based on the mention of a blonde lab technician who was named in the second pilot by Kirk's opponent Gary Mitchell.
Carol Marcus was in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan of Bibi Besch and in Star Trek Into Darkness by Alice Eve played.
Harcourt "Harry" Fenton Mudd is a person and a trader. Because of his illegal business, he is regularly wanted by the Federation.
