Ellen Landry, 2256[src]

Ellen Landry was a human Starfleet officer in the 2250s. In 2256, she was assigned to the USS Discovery under Captain Gabriel Lorca. (DSC episodes: "Context Is for Kings", "The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry")


Ellen Landry and Kerwin grew up together. While Kerwin was a video novelist, Landry aimed to join Starfleet. According to how Amna Patel would later tell the story, Kerwin joined Starfleet because he lost a bet with Landry - a rumor he denied.

Landry and Kerwin attended Starfleet Academy together, and then served with Patel on the USS Buran under Captain Gabriel Lorca. (STO - Rise of Discovery mission: "The Impossibility of Reason")

Landry knew prison warden Hadrian Vosker, and was wary of his tendency to eschew Starfleet principles in favor of torture to get results. (STO - Rise of Discovery mission: "The Plausibility of the Possible")

In the 2250s, Commander Landry held the position of first officer. She was romantically involved with Lieutenant Commander Amna Patel, with Captain Lorca's blessing. Kerwin was an engineering specialist in Patel's security force.

Landry reminisced about Patel in a personal log months after the events at Priors 5d. By then, she and Lorca had transferred to USS Discovery, where Landry had taken over the role of chief of security, Patel's position on the Buran. (STO - Rise of Discovery mission: "The Impossibility of Reason")

She would often communicate with Patel via voicecom. (STO short story: "Calm Amidst the Storm")

Alternate timeline[]

In an alternate timeline affected by the temporal anomaly crisis, versions of USS Discovery's Commander Ellen Landry appeared in local space around 2380, and joined Starfleet. Up to four versions of this Landry could be fused to improve the commander's skills. Commander Landry was particularly proficient in security, command, and science. She was a tactician, marksman, and generally brutal, like her mirror universe counterpart. (ST video game: Star Trek: Timelines)
