Character Bio

Lieutenant Galloway photo
Galloway was a 23rd century Starfleet lieutenant. He served aboard the USS Enterprise between 2266 and 2269, during the historic five-year mission under James T. Kirk. Assigned to the operations division, he regularly performed engineering and security duties.


When the Enterprise encountered a duplicate planet of Earth on stardate 2713.5, Galloway was assigned as part of the security detail for the landing party. After the landing party met one of the Onlies, Galloway escorted Commander Spock as the Vulcan searched through the ruins of the area. Even though they were pelted by debris thrown by the children in an alleyway, none of them were injured. Later on, when Doctor Leonard McCoy was working on a vaccine to cure the life prolongation complex, Galloway guarded the hospital where McCoy was conducting his research.


On stardate 2821.5, Galloway performed the duties of a transporter chief. When the shuttlecraft Galileo had to make an emergency landing on Taurus II which forced the Enterprise into a rescue mission for the shuttlecraft crew, Galloway informed Kirk that the transporter was not working properly and there was no safe way to beam anyone aboard. Later, when the transporter was fixed, he beamed the surviving members of the Galileo before it incinerated in a decaying orbit around the planet.

When McCoy accidentally injected himself with a hypo of cordrazine and rendered Lieutenant Kyle unconscious in the transporter room on stardate 3134.0, Galloway was one of two officers who found Kyle. He was later assigned to the landing party that beamed down to surface of the time vortex planet in search of the doctor.

During the visit to Beta III on stardate 3156.2, Galloway was assigned to the security detail for the second landing party which encountered Landru and uncovered the fate of the Archon. In order to blend in with the people of Beta III, he, along with the rest of the landing party, was disguised as a local inhabitant.

When the Enterprise visited Eminiar VII on stardate 3192.1, Galloway joined the landing party to the planet. After High Councilor Anan 7 imprisoned the landing party, members of the party escape with Galloway disguised as an Eminian guard. He assisted Spock in rescuing Ambassador Robert Fox from the disintegration station, and guarded the Eminian High Council while Kirk and Spock acted to end Eminiar's war with Vendikar.

During the mission to Deep Space Station K-7 on stardate 4523.3, Galloway was posted as one of two security officers by the quadrotriticale storage compartment on Kirk's orders. Later, he witnessed Kirk being buried by an avalanche of tribbles when the captain demanded an inspection of the storage compartment.

When the Enterprise discovered the USS Exeter in orbit around Omega IV later the same year, Galloway joined Kirk, Spock and McCoy and beamed over to the abandoned starship. He later beamed down to a Kohm village on the planet surface only to be injured by a Yang and become the victim of phaser fire at the hands of Captain Ronald Tracey.


After Doctor Janice Lester switched her body with Kirk through a life-energy transfer machine and assumed control of the Enterprise through his body on stardate 5928.5, Galloway was assigned as part of the security detachment to guard Lester, who was Kirk at this time. He witnessed Spock perform a Vulcan mind-meld and refused to obey the first officer's orders when the Vulcan realized that Kirk was trapped inside Lester's body.

Infections and Injuries

Throughout the five-year mission, Galloway was exposed to certain dangers during his years of service aboard the Enterprise. As a result, he suffered some infections and injuries.

On stardate 2713.5, Galloway was infected with the life prolongation complex for several days before McCoy created a vaccine that cured him of the disease. Years later, he was exposed to the Omega IV virus.

Spock assaulted Galloway on at least two occasions. After Galloway was absorbed by The Body of Landru on stardate 3156.2, Spock rendered him unconscious after he attacked the Vulcan. On stardate 5928.5, Galloway was the victim of a Vulcan nerve pinch when he prevented the escape of Kirk, who at this time was imprisoned in the body of Janice Lester.

The final assault Galloway received was when he was vaporized by a phaser at the hands of Captain Tracey in 2268.
