Origin Star Trek Canon Special Note
Not everything listed in the origin is Canon. That is because only television shows and movies are considered canon for Star Trek. This being a comic website there are many things here that are not canon. So unless it is contradicted in film it should be listed as part of the character biography.
Captain Adam Crowe was the captain of the U.S.S. Achilles. The Captain was known to decompress shuttlepods filled with explosives to detonate near enemy ships in desperate stations. He did this in a battle against the Chakuun
. It was successful in the battle but not enough to save his ship and it was destroyed with most of the crew. Some were saved by the U.S.S. Enterprise with Captain Christopher Pike in command. It is unknown if Crowe was among the survivors.
