Wright was a Human male who served as a Starfleet officer during the late-24th century.

In 2371, Wright held the rank of Admiral. He served at Starfleet Headquarters on Earth.

That year, the crew of the USS Defiant visited the planet to attend a symposium on the Gamma Quadrant, however during transport to the surface, Commander Benjamin Sisko, Lieutenant Jadzia Dax and Doctor Julian Bashir inadvertently materialized in 21st century San Francisco, just days before the Bell Riots were due to take place.

During his investigation into the incident, Chief Miles O'Brien developed a method of duplicating the original transporter accident which would allow an away team to travel back in time to search for the stranded crew, however Wright ordered him not to do so for fear they may contaminate the timeline further. Major Kira objected to his decision but when she attempted to contact Wright to discuss it further, Starfleet and the Federation had already disappeared from the timeline due to the presence of Sisko, Dax and Bashir.
