Jareth was the Fourth Host of Rodan. Joined in 2352, he had a long and distinguished career in Starfleet. He was present for the Battle of Sector 001 as a Medical Officer on the USS Billings, and the Dominion War as Chief Medical Officer of the USS Alaska, and treated casualties in both conflicts. He had a wise and gentle nature and was known to be very patient and understanding - something which wasn't said of his previous Hosts.
He was CMO and later First Officer of the USS Copernicus, but much preferred his medical duties over his command ones. In 2397 the Copernicus was on an exploratory mission to an uncharted sector in the Alpha Quadrant, where the away team encountered a strange and deadly new virus. Despite his best efforts, he couldn't synthesize a cure and the virus proved fatal. The Copernicus was able to slipsteam to Trill in order for Rodan to given to the next Host, and Jareth had time to speak to Maz - the next Host - and give him some of his famous grandfatherly advice before he died.
