Admiral Nogura was a Starfleet flag officer in the 23rd century. The personnel of the Admiralty were known to have formidable reputations.
Nogura temporarily transferred command of the
USS to Enterprise Rear Admiral James T. Kirk, and demoted Captain Willard Decker. The transfer was done at Kirk's request in reference to the crisis. When hearing that Admiral Kirk had talked Nogura into giving him command of the V'ger Enterprise, now- Commander Montgomery Scott commented, " I doubt it was that easy with Nogura!" Kirk responded, imitating the engineer's Scottish burr, " Yer right."
Nogura was also responsible for "
drafting" Doctor McCoy by invoking the little-known, seldom-used reserve activation clause, much to the doctor's initial frustration. ( )
