Served with Reyes on the USS Dauntless, where he was close to Hallie Gannon too, and the USS Belleau Wood. Attempted to have Jabilo M'Benga be his successor at Vanguard, but the younger man wanted to serve on a ship. After Desai's departure he stayed on Vanguard, retiring only in 2268 and planning to join his daughter's medical practice on Mars. However, Fisher was unable to leave the station before the arrival of a massive Tholian armada. During the battle he accompanied Fellaren th'Shoras (Shor) to the weapons batteries, and perished in the defense of the station that year. Had at least three children, Ely, Jane and Noah, at least one one son-in-law, Neil (husband of Jane), and at least two grandsons, James and Seth (children of Jane and Neil).

Judge Advocate General OfficeEdit
- Captain Rana Desai, the principal JAG officer on the station, who administers all Starfleet and Federation law in the Taurus Reach. Formerly a detective, she entered Starfleet and joined the JAG corps. Passionate, stern and fastidious, she arrived on Vanguard in 2265. Although she soon entered into a relationship with the station's CO, Diego Reyes, they kept it secret and often crossed swords in their public roles - whether over colony policy or JAG's responsibility to investigate potential failings by Starfleet or Reyes, such as the loss of the USS Bombay. Secretly she also was preparing a case about Reyes and Starfleet's association with criminal elements, such as the Orion merchant Ganz, but when Reyes released classified information she instead had to arrest him for another reason. She defended Reyes in his trial, and prepared to move to Earth after the trial to continue their relationship - but the commodore's presumed death aboard the USS Nowlan put an end to that plan. Beginning to move on, she had a fling with Haniff Jackson, before T'Prynn, then rogue, revealed Reyes was alive. She left Vanguard in 2267, but was reunited with Reyes in 2270.
- Lieutenant, later Lieutenant Commander Holly Moyer, JAG officer. Young, athletic, willowy, auburn-haired. Excellent racquetball player. She assumed Desai's leadership role in 2267, vindicating the distinguishing remarks given by Captain Mosh zelev Sereb when he choose her to be his assistant in the court martial of Diego Reyes.
- Lieutenant commander Peter Liverakos, defense attorney, assigned to Starfleet JAG office on Starbase 47. Mid-40s, boyish appearance, goatee, salt-and-pepper hair. Defended Commodore Diego Reyes and the Vanguard crew during a JAG-mandated inquiry following the loss of the USS Bombay in 2266.

Fictional cargo chief on Starbase 47, invented by Lieutenant Commander T'Prynn to deceive reporter Tim Pennington into publishing a flawed set of facts regarding the Tholian attack on the Ravanar IV outpost and the Starship Bombay. Ostensibly, the person whom Pennington met was an agent of Starfleet Intelligence planted by T'Prynn.
- Chief Petty Officer Sozlok, a vaguely simian-looking non-commissioned officer who works the night shift, supervising the public storage facilities on Starbase 47. He seems to hate his job. He regaled Manón with ribald tales of his misspent youth.

A lean, short-haired woman of Thai heritage, she was in her mid-forties in 2268-2269 and could "berat[e] each of her people in their native language, whether that was Tellarite, Andorii, Vulcan, or any of a handful of Terran tongues, sometimes switching from one to another in mid-sentence without missing a syllable."
- Chancellor Sturka, leader of the Klingon Empire.
- Councillor Gorkon, member of the Klingon High Council and key ally of Chancellor Sturka. As a general in the KDF he commanded the IKS Chech'Iw in the 2250s] and had several run-ins with the USS Dauntless under the command of then-Captain Diego Reyes. As Councillor he was involved in the Klingon expansion into the Gonmog Sector - the Taurus Reach - and their efforts to repurpose Shedai artifacts for the Empire, principally led by his agent Kutal. In the process he began to see the potentials for peace with his old enemy, the Federation. In 2267 he used Captain Chang to kidnap the disgraced Commodore Reyes and the Tholian Ezthene, both iconoclasts to their respective societies, to convince Sturka that peace could occur between the three peoples. Sturka rejected the overture, and Gorkon would release both gentlebeings. In 2268 he entered into a secret conflict with Duras, who had replaced him as Sturka's confidante, and who sought secretly to move the empire much closer to the Romulan Star Empire than the public alliance allowed. Gorkon engineered Duras's downfall and would eventually preside as Chancellor by 2293, beginning the process towards peace he had long hoped for. Unfortunately, he would be assassinated before his vision was complete - a plot that ironically involved Starfleet and KDF hawks, including his protege Chang, cooperating to ensure a war at last.
- Councillor Alakon, member of the Klingon High Council in 2265, commoner-born, ascended through honorable combat.
- Councillor Argashek, member of Klingon High Council in 2265. Allied with Councillors Grozik and Glazya.
- Councillor Duras, member of Klingon High Council in 2265 with an old enmity towards Chancellor Sturka's House. However by the late 2260s he had assumed a powerful position in the Council, offsetting Councillor Gorkon as Sturka's right-hand man. By 2268 he had become involved with the Empire's new allies, the Romulans, in an attempt to position himself to replace Sturka. Gorkon and his agents Captains Chang and Kutal moved against Duras that year, first attempting to obtain intelligence by spying on his son Brakk or even eliminating the latter. However this attempt quickly failed when Brakk assassinated Kutal and his ship. Instead Gorkon had his other agent Lugok leak through Ambassador Jetanien of the Federation and the Federation News Service journalist Tim Pennington the councillor's alliance with the Romulans. Duras suffered public shame and was to be subject to an investigation by Imperial Intelligence.

Klingon Diplomats On VanguardEdit
- Lugok, Klingon ambassador to Vanguard. Is actually a covert operative of Imperial Intelligence. Son of Breg. Would be recalled from Vanguard in 2266, but his heart sung for diplomacy further, and he would go to Nimbus III with Jetanien to see if the ancient Romulan senator D'Tran would answer the Chelon's invitation. They would wait six months, but were vindicated, and would found the peace colony of Paradise City on Nimbus III.

Heard Vanessa Theriault and Tim Pennington plead for the lives of the captured Tholians from the Shedai Apostate, convincing her to later save the USS Sagittarius from the IKS Zin'za. She encountered similar views in a Tholian elite, Ezthene, and the two fled to Vanguard separately. Nezrene arrived and provided aid to the scientists of the Vault. Ezthene arrived subsequently, and two lived together in a private sublink until her accidental death during the Shedai Wanderer's invasion of the station in late-2267.

Part of Ganz's retinue on the Omari-Ekon. In 2267 he would steal from the Vault the Myrdonae Artifact for Captain Kutal of the IKS Zin'za.

Broon's ship was captured by the Klingons and impounded at Borzha II.

- Shedai Progenitor was in fact the First Shedai Serrataal, more powerful and revered than all the others, including the Maker. Shedai legends told that the Progenitor was captured by an ancient enemy, and it was this defeat that ultimately led to the Shedai retreating from the interstellar stage. He in fact was trapped in the Myrdonae artifact, which exuded an evil aura to all beings who encountered it.
