Rank: Rear admiral, lower half
Occupation: Starfleet Command
Status: Alive (2364)
Played by: Ward Costello

Rear Admiral Gregory Quinn was a high ranking Starfleet official attached to Starfleet Command in the 2360s.

History Edit

In the year 2364 Admiral Quinn was attached to Starfleet Operational Support Services and made, among others, the executive decision to postpone the planned upgrade of the warp sensor grids of the USS Gremlin due to budgetary considerations. (TNG: "Conspiracy")

Most importantly, Quinn played a crucial role in the uncovering of an attempt to take over Starfleet Command by neural parasites in that year. Quinn ordered the Inspector General officer Dexter Remmick to investigate whether or not the USS Enterprise-D had been infiltrated also. (TNG: "Coming of Age")

Nothing was discovered at the time, but Quinn himself would later become a victim of the alien parasite infestation. His mind was overtaken by the hitherto unknown parasitic intelligence when it infiltrated Starfleet Headquarters. Later that year, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Commander William T. Riker of the Enterprise-D destroyed the alien mother creature which lived in the body of Dexter Remmick, thereby also causing the deaths of all other associated parasites on Earth. Quinn himself was expected to make a full recovery following the ordeal. (TNG: "Conspiracy")


Quinn was part of Commander William T. Riker's memories while being infected on the surface of Surata IV and treated in sickbay. (TNG: "Shades of Gray")

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

Admiral Quinn was played by Ward Costello. His rank insignia was an admiral braid with no pip, which costume notes have indicated as rear admiral (lower half).

Quinn was never seen or mentioned again after the first season of The Next Generation, with the exception of archive footage used in TNG: "Shades of Gray". Quinn's recovery is stated in a log entry made by Captain Picard.

Apocrypha Edit

Quinn returned, one rank higher, as a full rear admiral in issues of DC Comics' TNG series story arc entitled War and Madness.

While listed as a 2375 Dominion War casualty in the New Worlds, New Civilizations book, Quinn was later mentioned as being retired, circa 2380, in the novel Articles of the Federation.
