Maura M. Drake, M.D. was a Federation Starfleet medical officer on active duty in the late 23rd and early 24th centuries. Drake was chief medical officer of the USS Deimos, beginning in 2299. (Starship Deimos: "Pas de Trois", "The Lucky One", "No Greater Love...", "Prodigal Daughter", "Shattered Sky", "Where They Have Gone, We Follow", "Blood Crystals", "Butterfly Effect", "Leviathan", "Together in the Night")

Immediately prior to her service on the Deimos, Dr. Drake was CMO on the Constitution-class starship USS Potemkin. (Project Potemkin) She was one of many surviving officers and crew of the Potemkin who transferred to other assignments after the destruction of that vessel during an engagement with Romulan forces in 2299. (Project Potemkin: "Destinies")

Aboard Potemkin[]

Dr. Drake was one of the senior officers who had a disguised Romulan spy under close scrutiny. ("Do No Harm")

Previous Starfleet service[]

After receiving her M.D. degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Medical School, where she was valedictorian, Dr. Drake undertook post-graduate studies at Starfleet Medical and interned there for two years. Her first Starfleet assignment was as an assistant medical officer at Starbase 119.

Her subsequent assignments included chief medical officer billets on a hospital ship -- the USS Hope -- and the USS Resolve, followed by an assignment as Chief Medical Officer for Research and Development at the Starbase 10 Medical Center.

Family[]

Dr. Drake's parents were Mariah and Sheridan Drake, both physicians and diplomats assigned to Ra'Lera, a warp-capable civilization in the process of petitioning for Federation membership.

She has one sister, Mera M. Drake, a scientist and actor married to Edwin Sheffield, Federation ambassador to Risa. Mera was the artistic director of a theater company in the municipality of Mountainside on Risa.

Dr. Drake was married to C.J. Littleton, but they were apparently divorced while she was assigned to Potemkin.

Littleton's name may have been retconned to another character (played by Renda Carr's husband, Timothy Carr) seen in Project Potemkin: "Closing Time".
