Joe Chess was a member of Starfleet in the 24th century.

As a captain, he was listed as Starfleet Advanced Technologies Division personnel on the dedication plaque of the USS Brattain in 2345. (TNG: "Night Terrors")

In 2353, Chess was listed on a directory placard as having an office in room 55154 on Starbase 32. (TNG: "Violations")

In 2371, Chess was listed as a Starfleet Research and Development official on the dedication plaque of the USS Voyager.

He was also listed among USS Voyager's crew on that vessel's crew manifest in 2371. (VOY: "Projections")


According to his high rank, we must assume that he wasn't aboard the ship when it was stranded in the Delta Quadrant. He may have been assigned aboard during the construction or test phases of the ship. Another explanation could be that the crew manifest was deliberately falsified in order to disturb aliens who tries to scan the database or board the ship, which could explain the use of the people on the dedication plaque with ranks that obviously are doubtful.

Captain Chess, who was listed on various pieces of background artwork, was named for camera operator Joe Chess.
