"Captain, do you know what year this is?"
"Of course I do. It's 2278.
Jean-Luc Picard and Morgan Bateson, 2368[src]

Morgan Bateson was a Human man, a Starfleet captain best known as the commanding officer of at least three vessels, including the USS Bozeman.

He never knew his father and was raised by his mother. Known as “Bulldog Bateson.” Picard said Bateson “believes in himself more than the structure of Starfleet.” After temporal displacement, he adopted Starbase 12 as his hometown. (TNG novel: Ship of the Line)

In 2278, Bateson had his crew of the USS Bozeman to conduct repairs themselves. Following a transfer of two officers from Admiral James T. Kirk's USS Enterprise to the Bozeman, Bateson's ship came under attack by the IKS SoSoy Toj under Kozara. However, Bateson saw that this was a distraction. (TNG novel: Ship of the Line)

In 2368, as he and his crew were debriefed by Department of Temporal Investigations special agents Gariff Lucsly and Marion Dulmur, Bateson set a positive example by saying that the 24th century was their time.

In 2369, Bateson was infected with Cygnian flu by his crew so they could raid the Eridian Vault without his interference. (DTI novel: Watching the Clock)

By 2381, Captain Bateson was in command of the Sovereign-class USS Atlas. During the Borg Invasion of 2381, the Atlas was assigned to lead a fleet of vessels against a Borg force of ten cubes threatening Vulcan. Recalling the efforts at the Battle of Sector 001, Bateson experienced anxiety, despite their apparent advantages. Although the Starfleet forces outnumbered the enemy four to one, the Borg's adaptation to the transphasic torpedo left the fleet vulnerable. He attempted to warn off a last-ditch attempt by the fleet's reserve wing to no avail. With so few ships operational after the engagement, it was with great anger that he was forced to send a subspace communication warning the Vulcans of their impending doom.

When the Borg's march was temporarily halted, Bateson rallied the remaining four ships to take out as many cubes as possible. Feeling energized over their momentary advantage, Bateson merely rolled his eyes when orders from Starfleet Command confirmed an all-out immediate engagement. Bateson led the fleet in utterly obliterating the remaining Borg forces at Vulcan, securing the planet, and sending a sarcastic message to Command thanking them for the permission to engage. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)


Hikaru Sulu

Bateson had decided to name Lieutenant Commander Hikaru Sulu as his first officer on the USS Bozeman in 2278, just prior to the ship's disappearance. However just before Sulu was due to report on board the Bozeman, he met his daughter Demora Sulu and was given custody of her. Due to this unforseen change of events Sulu decided not to leave Earth. While irritated that Sulu was not going to be his first officer, Bateson knew that Sulu was in a difficult situation and didn't want to make it any harder on him. He did ask Sulu to make sure his daughter remembered the name Morgan Bateson, as it was she who deprived Bateson of a good first officer. (TOS novel: The Captain's Daughter)

Montgomery Scott

Bateson and Scotty "go way back".

Particulars of how and when Scott and the much younger Bateson met and became friends are not given. This is likely intended as a humorous reference to the fact that both of them have been transported from the past.

Clark Terrell

Bateson and Terrell knew each other, and made a friendly wager about their ships' performance reviews shortly before the Bozeman disappeared.

George Hill

A non-aquatic decapus with mammalian eyes, ten muscled tentacles, and no suction cups. From an unknown planet. Weighs 80lbs. Mascot of the Bozeman crew and personal pet. (TNG novel: Ship of the Line)
