For Radke's normal reality counterpart, see Daniel Radke.

In the "Stranger Than Fiction" reality, Daniel Radke was a high-level Special Operations officer holding the rank of captain and operating from Starfleet Command on Earth.


Unlike in the home universe, Radke retained command of the USS Vicksburg, gaining it in 2370, and completed several high-profile missions before his promotion to Starfleet Command in 2373.

At Starfleet Command, he held quite a strong sway with other captains and admirals. When Elizabeth Singh, displaced from her own reality, needed assistance, she sought Radke's help. Finding Singh's allegations to be truthful, Radke arranged for transport aboard the USS Voyager to confront the Myhr'an super battle cruiser. Radke, Singh and Benjamin Caldwell transported over to the Myhr'an ship.

Once aboard, Radke revealed his true colors: under M'Tar influence. He attempted to stop Singh from returning to her own reality, but, with Caldwell's help, she escaped. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Stranger Than Fiction")

With Voyager slamming into the Myhr'an super battle cruiser and causing extensive damage, it would be assumed Radke and Caldwell of this reality were killed in the explosion.
We assume that this reality diverged from the normal reality when either Radke decided to take a longer command of the Vicksburg or when the M'Tar somehow influenced him. This would have to take place before 2371 as he somehow managed to delay Voyager's completion to allow the Cantabrian to take its place. It's also highly implied he was responsible for stopping Starfleet involvement with stopping the M'Tar-influenced Myhr'an and arranging the demises of the other Cantabrian officers to allow a M'Tar take-over of the Federation.
