Starfleet history


She served as the first officer aboard the USS Hope in late 2365 when the Tzenkethi Coalition attacked the ship and took the Hope‘s crew prisoner. Graves helped USS Prospect commanding officer John Greene and USS Shabonee commanding officer Alexandra de Groot escape the Tzenkethi; unfortunately, her captain was killed in the escape, so she took command of the Hope. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: “The King Has Lost His Crown”)


n 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. (Star Trek: Shabonee: “The Immortal”)


She took command of the USS Shabonee sometime in 2371. One of the first missions she undertook saw her and her ship thrown back in time to World War III Earth where she met The Immortal and his companion Esther. (Star Trek: Shabonee: “The Immortal”)

Aboard the Starship Cantabrian


In 2374, after the disappearance of Noah Wrightson, Graves took command of the Cantabrian-A. This was her third command. (“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 (in reality, The Immortal), were not a threat, she stepped in, agreeing to broker a cease-fire and step into history’s role of Nefertiti in exchange for Wrightson‘s safety. Ay agreed. (“Where There’s a Man Who Has No Voice, There Ours Shall Go Singing”)

Graves’s request was to deliver her personal items to her cousin Judith. (“Said I Was Saved but You Never Said What From”)
