Lieutenant Nathan Dowey was a Starfleet officer in the 24th century. He served aboard the USS Alexandria-A as its navigator and its geologist. (Star Trek: Odyssey)


Nathan was born in 2349 on Deneva to Wesley and Jasmine Dowey. As a kid, he used to go diving in the Aurelius Ocean, spawning his interest in rocks and minerals.

Starfleet careerEdit

Nathan entered Starfleet Academy in 2367, studying geology with an interest in piloting. He later graduated in 2371 and was assigned to the Ambassador-class USS Excalibur. At first, his career started out slow with not much opportunities to study rocks on unexplored worlds so he asked to be assigned as a navigator as well. However, in 2373 his ship was assigned to the Typhon Fleet to take out a Borg cube that was on its way to Earth. His ship was one of the ships targeted for assimilation. He was on the bridge when multiple drones beamed aboard and began assimilating crew members. He witnessed Captain Korsmo become assimilated. He quickly fired his phaser, killing his captain, to prevent him from becoming a drone.

He then was assigned to the Galaxy-class USS Excalibur-A after the Excalibur was destroyed by a Narobian virus that was planted into its computer during the Double Helix incident. He continued to serve as the ship's geologist and part time navigator until 2381 when Captain Allensworth asked him to be part of the crew of the {{uss|Alexandria|NCC-2547-A|-A}.

Due to the Mirror War there wasn't much need for a geologist, however, Allensworth still wanted the position filled. He even gave Lieutenant Dowey the Navigation position with the departure of Lieutenant Trinn. Dowey figured out the rock traces left in Commander Zofchak's quarters after Kyou and Ryou were taken were from the highlands of the moon. (Star Trek: Odyssey: "Sixty-two")

Nathan was at the helm of the Alexandria during the final battle between the Federation and the Terran Empire. (Star Trek: Odyssey: "Where Mortals Are Forbidden")

Along with the rest of the bridge crew, Dowey was sent back in time by Q to a brutal period in Earth history. He was sent back to Katyn in Russia. He was part of the Polish military that was executed by the Soviets in 1940. (Star Trek: Odyssey: "Dining on Ashes")

Personal lifeEdit

Nathan met Sara Nave during his junior year at the academy while she was visiting San Francisco. The two became intimate and were later married shortly before his assignment aboard the Excalibur. She joined him on board the Excalibur until the Battle of Sector 001 when she was almost assimilated. After that, she wanted to stay at home in Tycho City on the Moon. Shortly later, she revealed she was pregnant with the twins, Alexander and Lila. Nathan tries to go home to see his family whenever he gets that chance. He does find it hard at times, being across the galaxy away from his family.
