Star Trek Expanded Universe

Patricia Graves was the original commanding officer of the USS Cantabrian-A in 2374.


Patricia Graves was born in 2331 to Robert and Anita Graves in Atlanta on Earth. She was one of a long line of Starfleet command personnel.

In 2367, Patricia Graves was on a deep space assignment returning back to Earth when the Battle of Wolf 359 occurred. Her husband, brother and father, as well as her brother's family, were killed in the battle, leaving only her mother alive. Shortly thereafter, her mother died of natural causes.

In 2374, after the disappearance of Noah Wrightson, Graves took command of the Cantabrian-A. This was her second command. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "In the Still of the Night")

Later that same year, investigating a strange anomaly from a planet's surface, Graves discovered a rift to ancient Egypt. Upon further investigation, she discovered Wrightson alive and well, fighting an alien "threat" to ancient Egypt. Discovering the aliens, led by Ay, were not a threat, she stepped in, agreeing to broker a cease-fire and step into history's role of Nefertiti in exchange for Wrightston's safety. Ay agreed.

Graves's request was to deliver her personal items to her cousin Judith. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Told Me I Was Saved, but You Never Said What From")
