Science officer 0718 was played by Joseph Gatt. On set, he was known as GATT2000 and then GATT5000 when that was deemed an outdated name for a 23rd century character. He described his character as "an augmented Human." He stated in a interview that the character was "not an android or robot of any kind", and expressed disappointment his final name suggested as much, stating "my humanity acts as a firewall against the [potential] hacking threat." [1]

Gatt said "one of my cybernetic augmentations is on the back of my head. The concept is that it's a miniature version of the ship's main computer which puts me in direct telepathic connection with the ship's systems at all times." [2] Makeup supervisor David LeRoy Anderson took a photograph of the bridge's ceiling to duplicate onto Gatt's head, because the ceiling would not be shown in the film. [3]

0718 was the protagonist of "I, Enterprise!" Parts 1 and 2, two issues of IDW Publishing's Star Trek, which reveals he was created in the medbay by a mysterious alien sphere that took control of the ship. Gatt commented that he loved the back story, depicted, "I am the humanoid version of the Enterprise. That is pretty exciting. I feel kind of privileged." [4] According to the character list from "The Q Gambit, Part 2", 0718 was "online as of stardate 2260.314". It is unclear what this date refers to, since all the human characters are given birth years, but 0718 obviously existed in 2259 while the comic is set in 2261.

The virtual collectible card battle game Star Trek: Rivals used a behind the scenes shot of Gatt for card #18, "Science Officer 0718".
