Commander David Galanter was an officer in the United States Navy during the 20th century. In 1995, he was the executive officer of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt under Captain Leon Ruszkowski. That year, he served coffee to Ruszkowski shortly before seven Soviet fighter planes from the recently destroyed carrier Sergei G. Gorshkov requested permission to land. (TNG novel: Ghost Ship)
