Richard Whitby was the lead counselor holding the rank of Lieutenant Commander, working at Starfleet Medical's Chicago office on Earth in 2367.

Whitby and Daniel Radke clashed after news the Borg cube was heading towards Earth, with Whitby wanting to wait for further orders, and Radke taking command despite his lower rank. Radke outlined to Whitby Starfleet Regulation 247, where the officer with the higher security clearance takes charge in a wide-scale emergency. Whitby complied and helped patrol the streets with Rose Hamelin and other Starfleet Medical staff. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child")

Months later, Whitby believed Radke's patient, Corey Aster, should have "walls" placed in his mind to stop his telepathic dreams: something Corey's grandmother wanted. Radke refused to perform the treatment, and Whitby assigned Myra Elbrey to perform the task. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Dream a Little Dream of Me")
