Alternate Reality
(split 2233)
For the prime reality counterpart, please see Finnegan.

Commander Finnegan was a 23rd century Human Federation Starfleet officer. He was stationed at Starbase Yorktown in 2263. (Star Trek Beyond)

HistoryEdit

In 2263, Finnegan was in the Yorktown's command center when Krall and his fleet of Swarm ships attacked. To Finnegan's horror, Yorktown's defenses had little effect on the Swarm and Yorktown came under heavy attack. As the attack continued, Finnegan was informed that they now had the disruption frequency and Finnegan ordered that it broadcast by the Yorktown. The combination of the signal being broadcast by the Yorktown and the Franklin ultimately destroyed the Swarm. Finnegan was still in the command center when Scotty and Jaylah arrived to temporarily shut down the atmospheric processor and claimed to them that what they were attempting to do was impossible. (Star Trek Beyond)

Finnegan was portrayed by Greg Grunberg, who previously appeared in the 2009 film Star Trek, as the voice of James T. Kirk's stepfather.
The writing of this character was heavily influenced by Simon Pegg, with fellow Star Trek Beyond co-writer Doug Jung describing the character as "a Simon thing." [1] According to Justin Lin, Grunberg asked to have his character be the alternate reality version of Finnegan. [2]
He was James T. Kirk's would-be "killer" and "victim" in the titular challenge of the Star Trek: Starfleet Academy YA novel The Assassination Game. Kirk dodged one attempt by utilizing a variation of the corbomite maneuver, claiming that he had accidentally spilled chemicals that were going to explode if Finnegan didn't leave the room immediately. In the novel, Finnegan's first name is given as "Jake".
