Captain Krasnovsky was a male Human Starfleet officer in the 23rd century. In 2267, this decorated officer was a sciences division starship captain.

That same year, he served on the board conducting the general court martial of a fellow captain, James T. Kirk, when he was accused of perjury and culpable negligence in the apparent death of Lieutenant Commander Benjamin Finney. (TOS: "Court Martial")

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

Krasnovsky was played by actor Bart Conrad.

This character's name was spelled "Krasnowsky" in the script for "Court Martial" but is spelled "Krasnovsky" in the episode's end credits sequence.

In the final draft and revised final draft of the "Court Martial" script, he was referred to, in the stage directions, as "a bull-necked Slav." He was to have been introduced, in dialogue from the final draft script, as a "Star Command Captain", though this was changed to "Star Ship Captain" in the revised final draft.

To date, Krasnovky was the highest-ranking officer of his division seen in a uniform. The clothing worn by Admiral McCoy in TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint" was not a uniform. All other science officers seen on Star Trek were commanders or below.

Aside from Krasnovsky, the only other starship commanders to wear a blue uniform were Lieutenant Commander Jadzia Dax, after being placed in command of the USS Defiant in 2374, and Commander Spock in the alternate reality, when he was placed in command of the USS Enterprise in 2258. The final example of a science division commanding officer, Commander Branch, was in charge of a space station – the Epsilon IX monitor station.
