Ensign Harper was a Starfleet engineer who served aboard the USS Enterprise in the 2260s.

When the Enterprise was assigned to test the M-5 computer in 2268, Harper was one of the crewmembers left aboard as part of the skeleton crew. Unfortunately, Harper died shortly after when he attempted to disconnect the computer from the Enterprise's power systems, and M-5 increased the flow and vaporized him. (TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer").

Biography

Battle of Earth

Harper was most likely part of the Orbital Defense Grid over Africa, in charge of protecting the MAC orbital platform clusters in that region, which included Cairo Station. Fleet Admiral Harper was not seen on screen, however he was heard in two separate transmissions regarding the attack on Earth, by the Prophet of Regret's battle group (consisting of 15 Covenant Capital Ships: 13 CCS-class Battlecruisers and 2 Assault Carriers). Harper's transmissions were as follows:

Fleet Admiral Harper: "This is Fleet Admiral Harper, we are engaging the enemy!"
Fleet Admiral Hood: "Negative Admiral. Form a defensive perimeter around the cluster."

(later)

Fleet Admiral Harper: "First echelon, you're with me. Blanket those cruisers. Take 'em out one by one. Second echelon, keep those carriers busy."
Fleet Admiral Harper: "The carriers are breaking through sir, they're heading straight for the Cairo!"
Fleet Admiral Hood: "Cortana, concentrate your fire on the first carrier. Admiral, do what you can against the second."

His voice in the transmissions sounded young for the high rank of Fleet Admiral. The readout from Cairo Station showed that Harper's fleet consisted of 8 Cruisers and 67 Frigates, as well as a large number of fighter units, as at one point he ordered his Longswords to blanket the Covenant cruisers and take them out, one by one.

Presumably, he continued to fight in the late Battle of Earth, during the Covenant Loyalist invasion.

Fate

Given the "smashed" status of the human fleet[2] by the events of Halo 3, it is highly probable that Harper died in battle with the Covenant Loyalist Forces.

Rank

Though he has the same rank as Fleet Admiral Hood, Harper is his subordinate. This is due to the fact that as the Chief of Naval Operations, Hood is technically the highest ranking officer in the UNSC Navy.

Harper Stanhope is a therapist and member of the Others. She was married to Goodwin, but their relationship deteriorated, prompting Goodwin to have an affair with Juliet Burke.

Contents

Background

Harper received her bachelors degree from Columbia University and her masters degree in psychology from Yale University. ("The Other Woman-Enhanced") She was also granted a "Certificate of Recognition" from the Hanso Foundation and another certificate from the "Experimental Social Psychology Society". ("The Other Woman")

On the Island

Harper was antagonistic towards Juliet from their first meeting and became more so after she discovered Juliet was sleeping with her husband, which she discovered by following and watching them.
Harper appears to Juliet in the jungle. ("The Other Woman")
She warned Juliet that Ben's obsession with her could prove lethal for Goodwin should Ben discover the affair. Harper's omen came to pass when Ben sent Goodwin undercover with the tail section survivors and left him there for three weeks, at which time he was killed by Ana Lucia Cortez. ("The Other Woman")

Day 94 (Season 4)

After Juliet left the Others, Harper found her in the jungle to deliver a message, allegedly from Ben, that Juliet should thwart Charlotte Lewis and Daniel Faraday's mission to the Tempest at all costs. According to Harper, the freighter team members were being sent to unleash a type of nerve gas that would kill every living person on the Island. Harper claimed to be acting under Ben's orders even though Ben was being imprisoned by Locke at the time. She then disappeared after Jack and Juliet were distracted by whispers in the jungle. ("The Other Woman")

Trivia

  • During casting she was described as Chandley Price. Mid 30s to early 40s. Female. Tough, no-nonsense and beautiful in an unadorned way. A therapist by profession and yet could benefit from some therapy herself. The qualities that make her a leader and effective at seeing into other people also cause her problems in her own life -- she can be overly controlling and obsessive. Her strength of personality is undeniable. Guest star / recurring [1]
  • In Greek mythology, a harpy was a monstrous, winged minister of divine vengeance with the face of a woman and body, wings, and claws of a bird. Personifications of guilty consciences, harpies harassed the guilty. The word is often used hyperbolically to refer to an strident, demanding woman, especially a wife.
  • Charles Stanhope, 3rd Earl Stanhope was a British statesman and scientist. He wrote a scathing reply to philosopher Edmund Burke's Reflections on the French Revolution. Edmund Burke is also the name of Juliet's husband.
  • In the book Empty Cradle by Karen Harper, a woman wanting a baby heads to a fertility clinic in New Mexico run by a Dr. Stanhope, a feminist embryologist who is stealing the eggs of her patients and using them in experiments with drugs that can cause birth defects.
  • Harper Lee was the author of To Kill a Mockingbird. The book was referenced in the Hydra station when Juliet was trying to convince Jack to sabotage Ben's spinal surgery using cue cards in a videotape.
  • In photography, a Stanhope is a miniature microphotographic lens incorporated into a small collectible like a ring or a bracelet charm.
