|Assignment(s):||Assistant Chief Engineer|
|Joe Carey aboard the Enterprise in 2364.|
Lieutenant Joseph Carey was a Starfleet engineer in the 24th century. He was assigned as assistant chief engineer aboard the USS Voyager in 2371, and was with the ship when she was transported to the Delta Quadrant. He had a rocky relationship with his former-Maquis superior B'Elanna Torres, who once broke his nose. Carey was killed in 2377 during a mission to locate the Friendship One probe. He was survived by his wife and two sons. (VOY: "Parallax", "Friendship One", et. al)
In the "Pendragon timeline," Starfleet never assigned Voyager to recover Friendship One. Lieutenant Carey returned to the Alpha Quadrant alive and well in late 2377 and was promoted to Lieutenant Commander.
Background[edit | edit source]
Years before his role as Joe Carey, Josh Clark played an unnamed tactical officer on the USS Enterprise-D in TNG: "Justice". Even though the two roles were many years apart, it recognizably Clark. It is very possible that Carey may have served on the Enterprise-D earlier in his career.
