Cristobal Rios

TimelineQuotes
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Cristobal Rios [1]
Species : Humans

Cristobal Rios was a human male and the executive officer of the USS ibn Majid, a Federation heavy cruiser. In 2390, he was part of the first contact procedure with Ambassador Beautiful Flower and his assistant Jana, when orders were received from Federation security to kill the contacts and destroy their ship. After the event the Federation removed all records of the ibn Majid. Captain Vandermeer killed himself soon afterwards out of remorse. [2] It was only after the events at Coppelius that the information came out. [3]

After leaving Starfleet he became Captain of La Sirena, a Kaplan F17 Speed Freighter. In 2399 ex-Admiral Picard hired Rios to take him on a mission to find Soji Asha, Dahj's twin sister. Within minutes of talking to Rios, Picard had identified him as a Starfleet officer to the core. [1] During their visit to planet Freecloud Rios pretended to be a 'facer, a flamboyant go between for criminals. A role that his usual broody existentialist spaceman persona didn't prepare him for. [4]

When Rios first saw Soji he immediately recognised her as being identical to Jana, bringing back the painful memories of that encounter. [2]

Rios took part in the attempt by La Sierna's crew to destroy the antenna used to contact the higher androids, although this was ultimately unsuccessful. Following Picard's death he admitted to Seven of Nine that he had sworn to never again let another self-righteous, hard-assed old starship captain into his heart, however, Picard had caused him to break that promise. [3]
