First Lieutenant Wes Greaves is human male currently serving as a Marine Officer aboard the USS Thor.


Wes Greaves wears his hair short. Buzzed short. A thin layer of light brown hair usually nigh invisible in direct sunlight. The human man is relatively short compared to most of the species, standing at 5'7", and cut into a lean frame. At first glance it is easy to see he is dedicated to his personal fitness, but he is certainly no heavy lifter. A runner would be a safer assumption. Below thin eyebrows, a pair of dull gray-blue eyes peer out at the world, framed by a lightly wrinkled face whose skin has certainly not been spared from days beneath the sun.

  • Height: 5'7"
  • Weight: 170 lbs
  • Hair: Brown
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Build: Athletic



Wes was born on the outskirts of Seattle, Washington in 2366 to Joan Greaves and George Greaves. He spent his childhood enjoying life in the suburbs and making short trips into the Cascade Mountains and trips out to the Puget Sound. Growing up, he fell in love with nature and became an avid hiker, camper, and spent plenty of time sailing during his teen years. As he grew older he turned weekend climbing trips a habit and experienced to some of Earth’s most beautiful mountains. Inspired by the defeat of the Borg in the Alpha Quadrant, he was determined to serve the people of the Federation. With his affinity for the outdoors, he sought out a Marine Corps recruiter’s office at the age of 18.

With his enlistment and basic training complete as a combat engineer, he first served on Mars with the 1st Marine Division. After several years he was assigned to Task Force 51/5, a Starfleet led anti-piracy campaign, where he saw his first combat both in space, and planetside. Following a successful tour, he was assigned to the newly created 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, a Marine command focused on anti-piracy operations. Here he experienced combat once again, but this time as a small unit leader, where he suffered the first combat loss of a Marine under his charge, Private Paul Newson This was a fundamental moment in Wes’s life, and the experience nearly resulted in his retirement from the Corps. Through mentorship with an excellent Marine officer, Major Ron Jordans, Wes recommitted himself to the Marine Corps and future service.

In 2391, after completing Advanced Marine Training, Wes was promoted to Staff Sergeant and assigned to the USS Hood as part of a new Marine Detachment aboard the ship, serving once again under Major Jordans. Assigned to a nine-month crisis response deployment, the ship extended for a total of 16 months on a mission to continue to assist the flood of Romulan refugees after the Hobus Supernova. Initially highly disappointed with a “Navy” ship-based assignment, Wes came to love life aboard the ship working hand in hand with Starfleet's finest. The shoulder to shoulder work, and the continued work with Major Jordans inspired Wes to apply for Starfleet Academy to become a commissioned officer.

Reinvigorated with a dedication to Starfleet, Wes had to choose between staying a Marine or entering the fleet as another Starfleet profession. Ultimately he decided he wanted to give back to the Starfleet Marine Corps and continue to work with junior Marines in much the same way as Major Jordans had worked with him. Despite the decision to stay a Marine, Wes applied for an was accepted into Starfleet Command school where he majored in Helm/Communications. He already knew how to be a Marine, so Wes wanted to learn more about starship life, how the giant testaments to humanity's ingenuity worked, and learn other aspects of command.

Embassy to Duronis II

As a newly commissioned Second Lieutenant, Wes Greaves entered the fleet again in 2397 assigned to the Federation Embassy of Duronis II where he immediately found himself in the midst of a Romulan plot to capture a great deal of highly dangerous protomatter. After going directly from the check-in shuttle to a rescue mission across the plant of Duronis II, the crew of the Embassy defeated the Romulan scheme only to find that the Federation finally had accepted the Laudean government as members of the Federation.

With the Laudean's offered membership to the Federation, the Embassy of Duronis II's mission came to an end. With a highly successful crew, the core personnel of the Embassy were mostly transferred permanently to the USS Thor and re-tasked for follow on missions.

USS Thor

The maiden voyage of the USS Thor with her new tasking involved responding to the distress call of a colony thought lost 250 years prior. The distress call was located on the other side of the quadrant from where the entire solar system had gone missing. During the mission, Wes was severely injured during a cave in while traversing an underground tunnel system. Fortunately, through the hard work of the crew and the tenacious descendants of the original colonists, the away team was recovered and able to effect a rescue. Not only were 192 surviving colonists rescued, but a previously unknown sentient species named the Azcou were rescued from the planet before it was lost to time again.

Wes continues to serve as a Marine officer aboard the USS Thor.


Ron Jordans

Former OIC
Wes served with Major Jordans in Task Force 51/5, and again aboard the USS Hood. Major Jordans played a critical role in talking Wes away from resigning from Starfleet after a combat mission which resulted in casualties.

Sarah Rodriguez

Squad Leader, Alpha Squad, USS Thor
Sarah 'Sally' Rodriguez was one of the first Marines Wes worked closely with on Duronis II. The young Sergeant was a firecracker who ran a tight ship in Alpha Squad. Wes came to respect her blunt demeanor and effective leadership style with the squad.


Medical Officer, USS Thor
Wes and the Vulcan doctor Alieth served together at the academy and underwent their final testing together. Both of them were assigned to the Embassy of Duronis II and then the USS Thor together. Despite very different personalities and a shared stubbornness, the two became quick friends.

Academy Classmates:

Sara Bjørge
Mikeja Lan
Wes briefly interacted with the four of his classmates who he shared his final evaluation with. None of them were well known to him however at the start of the exam. By the time the five of them had graduated, Wes was only slightly more familiar with the group. The newly commissioned Ensigns Sirok and Alieth were assigned to Duronis II along with him, and the three of them became much more familiar with each other on the freighter ride to the Embassy.
