R. Richards

Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : R. Richards [1]
Species : Humans

A member of Earth's Military Assault Command Operations, Richards was part of the team assigned to the NX-01 during it's mission into the Delphic Expanse. He took part in the mission to recover Cpatain Archer from the trellium mining facility early in that mission. [1] He fought against the Xindi boarding party which recovered their agent Rajiin from the ship [2], and was shot by one of the Triannon hijackers who briefly captured the ship. [3] As part of the joint training exercises held between Enterprise crew and the MACO team, Richards sparred with First Officer T'Pol. Although she knocked him to the floor several times, Richards took advantage of a momentary distraction on her part to punch her in the face, flooring her. [4]

After Enterprise was badly damaged at the battle of Azati Prime, Richards took part in the raid on an Illyrian ship to steal its warp coil for use on Enterprise. He was able to use a stun grenade to gain access to the chamber holding the coil. [5]

Richards was also one of the MACOs who rescued Hoshi Sato when she was abducted by the Xindi. He assisted his fellow MACO S. Money when she was wounded on the mission, and the two beamed back to Enterprise together. [6] He also fought against the Sphere Builders which boarded Enterprise when it attempted to destroy the Spheres. [7]

Richards survived the Delphic Expanse mission and remained aboard the NX-01. He was wounded when a group of Augments boarded Enterprise in 2154, though he again survived. [8] Later this year he stood guard over Shran and Talas whilst they were aboard the ship. Talas tried to seduce Richards as a distraction, and was able to knock him out and escape her quarters. [9]
