Daniel Curry was a prolific Starfleet officer in the 23rd and 24th century, who worked in many of the top Starfleet agencies and was involved in the commissioning of some of the most famous Starfleet starships.
By 2363, Curry achieved the rank of Captain and was in charge of Starfleet Research and Development. Part of his duties involved the commissioning of the USS Phoenix on stardate 40250. (TNG: "The Wounded")
By 2370, Curry had transferred to Starfleet Tactical and was involved in the commissioning of the USS Defiant on stardate 47538, the USS Voyager on stardate 48038, the USS Valiant on stardate 49456.5, the USS Prometheus on stardate 50749.5, and the USS Sao Paulo on stardate 52889.3.
- Daniel Curry's career can be traced to a few mentions on dedication plaques and other okudagrams seen in many Star Trek episodes. He was named for production staff member Dan Curry.
- Based on his high rank, we must assume that he wasn't aboard the USS Voyager when it was stranded in the Delta Quadrant. He may have been assigned aboard during the construction or test phase of the ship. Another explanation could be that the crew manifest was deliberately falsified in order to disturb aliens who tries to scan the database or board the ship, which could explain the use of the people on the dedication plaque with ranks that obviously are doubtful.
