By the late 2250s decade, he had reached the rank of captain and been placed in command of the Constitution-class starship USS Farragut. In the year 2257, during a mission to Tycho IV, Garrovick and two hundred of his crew were killed by a dikironium cloud creature. James T. Kirk, serving under Garrovick on his first deep-space assignment, felt terrible guilt over his captain's death for years to follow despite the fact that the ship's executive officer had given him a commendation for bravery in the incident. However, a later encounter with the creature revealed that conventional weapons were useless against it, so Kirk accepted that he was not at fault.(TOS episode: "Obsession"; TOS comic: "Gary")
The Star Trek: The Original Series Core Game Book calls him Thomas Garrovick.
The comic Debt of Honor consistently misspells his name as Garrovik.
