Science officer of the USS ShenzhouEdit
In 2249, Saru had obtained the rank of lieutenant and was serving in the sciences division aboard the USS Shenzhou under Captain Philippa Georgiou as a bridge officer. He was present when Michael Burnham arrived on the starship. (DIS: "Battle at the Binary Stars")
First officer of the USS DiscoveryEdit
When the prison transport shuttle carrying the disgraced former Starfleet officer Michael Burnham was brought aboard the USS Discovery for repairs, Saru escorted the former officer to engineering so that she would work as a “data cruncher” under Lieutenant Paul Stamets.
When the USS Glenn, the Discovery‘s sister ship, suffered a catastrophe, Saru spoke up in Burnham’s defence, describing her as the “smartest Starfleet officer [he] had ever met.”
