Ensign Eric Simms, Jr. was an Earth Starfleet officer of the 22nd century who served on the USS Yorktown. He was a recent West Point graduate. As well, he was the son of Captain Bill Stiles's best friend, Eric Simms, Sr. Stiles promised Eric he would take care of the young ensign.
Eric was an outstanding pilot – one of the best at West Point Academy. Eric lost his father during the Earth-Romulan War and had regrets about his complicated relationship with him. Those unresolved issues inspired Eric to turn to Captain Stiles as a surrogate father. (Star Trek: The Romulan Wars)
