October 2020: Character of the Month – Lieutenant junior grade Niall Stewart

For the month of October we are getting to know a member of our ‘lower decks’ crew. The ever so popular nurse, Lieutenant junior grade Niall Stewart. Here are five fantastic facts about him:

  1. Niall’s brother is adopted and both of them serve in Starfleet.
  2. His mixed English-Irish heritage has given him a slight Irish accent.
  3. Due to him attending university prior to joining Starfleet Training Command, he was able to do the fast track course. His first and second years were combined into one.
  4. He served on Voyager NV-03 prior to joining Challenger. He is the only person in Starfleet to serve under two Captain Burtons (Captain Madison Burton and Captain Lloyd Burton).
  5. If he had objected to being armed on his first mission with Challenger, he would not have got to know Liam Jenkins, his future husband-to-be.
