Unnamed crew on bridge Edit

Captain Edit

Defiant captain, 2268

The Defiant's captain, as discovered by James T. Kirk.

The captain was a 23rd century Human Starfleet officer of the Defiant.

In 2268, he had his neck broken by an operations division crewman on the bridge, in front of his command chair. He was discovered there by the landing party from the USS Enterprise, where it was indicated by Dr. McCoy that his neck was broken. (TOS: "The Tholian Web")

He was again discovered in the mirror universe by the landing party from the ISS Enterprise in 2155, where it was again indicated by T'Pol that Captain's neck was broken. He and his assaulter's corpses were later dragged aside by Jonathan Archer, Charles Tucker III and Travis Mayweather, so as to access the Defiant's helm. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

Archer later took over the Captain's quarters as his own, and found and changed into one of his uniforms from the Captain's wardrobe. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II")

In "The Tholian Web", the Defiant's captain was played by Paul Baxley; in "In a Mirror, Darkly", the captain was portrayed by Eric Warfield. [1]
The script for "The Tholian Web" described him as "an older man wearing Captain's stripes"; similarly the script for "In a Mirror, Darkly" described him as simply "the ship's Captain", adding that "Archer eyes the gold tunic of the commanding officer."
According to the novel Interphase, Part One in the Star Trek: SCE series, he was named Thomas Blair. According to the video game Star Trek Online, he was named Gil Morrison. According to the book Star Trek: Federation - The First 150 Years he was named Daniel Staley.

He was again discovered in the mirror universe by the landing party from the ISS Enterprise in 2155, where it was again indicated that he broke the Captain's neck. His and the Captain's corpses were later dragged aside by Archer, Tucker and Mayweather, so as to access the Defiant's helm. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

This lieutenant served in the operations division as an engineer aboard the Defiant.

He was killed in 2268 by phaser fire below decks, and his body, along with a discarded phaser pistol, was the first discovered by Malcolm Reed and Jonathan Archer after they beamed aboard Defiant, after the ship had been transferred to the mirror universe. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

He was described in the script as "A dead engineer is splayed face-down on the deck. An old-style phaser still in his hand. He's weaking a Kirk-era Original Series uniform."
This was the first appearance of the Defiant assignment patch, which was noted in a script note as "his uniform should sport a unique Starfleet emblem, reminiscent of the familiar arrowhead." A stylized version of this shape makes up the 2150s Earth Starfleet insignia.
