For the mirror universe counterpart, see Michael DeSalle (mirror).

Vincent M. DeSalle (also known as Anton "Tony" DeSalle) was a male Human in the 23rd century, and a career Starfleet officer. DeSalle served as assistant chief engineer and navigator aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise during the mid-2260s.

DeSalle eventually rose to the title of captain in his own right, as the commanding officer of the USS Republic. (TOS episodes: "The Squire of Gothos", "This Side of Paradise", "Catspaw"; TOS - New Earth novel: Wagon Train to the Stars)

Biography[edit | edit source]

DeSalle's surname indicates his family's origination in a French language region of Earth. (TOS episode & Star Trek 11 novelization: The Squire of Gothos)

DeSalle assumed command of the Enterprise when both Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock disappeared on planet M-155. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky) He also assumed command when Kirk, Spock, and Scott all investigated on Pyris VII. (TOS novel: Catspaw)

When the Enterprise explored Quadrant 904 in the year 2267, Lieutenant DeSalle was serving as navigator when he witnessed Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu and Captain James T. Kirk vanish from the bridge shortly after the ship first spotted the planet Gothos. Spock chose DeSalle to lead a landing party in a search for the missing crew. On Gothos, they met Trelane, who presumed DeSalle to be a Frenchman, and addressed him in that language. (TOS episode & Star Trek 11 novelization: The Squire of Gothos)

DeSalle later transferred to the USS Columbia. (TOS novel: The Weight of Worlds)

By 2270, DeSalle returned to the Enterprise and served as Security chief for a time, and remained on the ship until the end of its first five-year mission. (TOS novel: Crossroad)

In 2272, Commander Vincent DeSalle was appointed Captain of Timeship One, a joint Starfleet/DTI prototype timeship. The timeship was decommissioned later that year after a duplicate Timeship One returned from the future, with its dying crew explaining they went too far and succumbed to Hawking radiation. (DTI novel: Forgotten History)

By 2279, DeSalle attained the rank of captain and served as the commanding officer of the USS Republic. In that year, the Republic participated in the Belle Terre Colonial Expedition under the command of Admiral James T. Kirk. (TOS - New Earth novel: Wagon Train to the Stars)

The Star Trek Concordance, the FASA RPG module: Cadet's Orientation Sourcebook and TOS novel: A Choice of Catastrophes give "Vincent" as DeSalle's first name. Other sources have used the names "Michael" and "Anton".
