Lieutenant Nathanial Fremantle

'Nathanial Freemantle' was a Human Starfleet officer in the mid-24th century. As of 2365, he was serving as Records Officer on the U.S.S. Dauntless.

“You might think that, you might very well think that. But, as you know, I couldn’t possibly comment.”

Concept

Nathaniel is the Dauntless’ Propaganda Officer, not that Federation vessels have Propaganda Officers.

Background History

Nathanial hails from a proud family tradition of ambassadors and diplomats. His ancestors helped shape the treaties and accords which shaped the Federation, and which have ushered numerous alien species into its fold or, at least, into a state of mutual accord.

He graduated summa cum laude from one of the Federation’s most prestigious universities, specialising in Intergalactic and Star Fleet Law, before being recruited into Star Fleet. These skills were put to sound use when he was called upon to represent Robert Blake, Captain of the USS Charon, who stood accused of war crimes following his role in the Orion wars.

Nathaniel, fresh out of academy, took on the case that none of Star Fleet's other lawyers would touch (okay, so that reads like the plot of a John Grisham!), arguing that Blake's actions had been both justified and necessary, and had saved Federation lives. Despite the judge's urgings that Blake be convicted, a jury of his peers voted to acquit him of all charges by eight votes to five.

Nathaniel is perhaps better known as author of Fremantle’s best-selling The Orion Wars, which has shaped the version of history taught in universities and schools.

He is also an occasional contributor to several newspapers and periodicals, through various pen-names. These articles have been cleared through the appropriate channels, and were not found to compromise his professionalism as a Star Fleet Officer.
