José Tyler was a Human male who served in Starfleet in the 23rd century. He eventually rose to the rank of Commodore, though a notable posting earlier in his career was as the navigator of the USS Enterprise under both Captains Robert April and Christopher Pike.



Tyler was a hot-head at Starfleet Academy, but managed to scrape through. After graduating, he served on the USS Tiberius under Captain Robert April. April straightened him out and Tyler later served with him on the Enterprise during April's five-year mission. (EV comic: "Flesh of My Flesh")

By 2251 Tyler was a lieutenant, and remained aboard the Enterprise as chief navigator when Captain Christopher Pike assumed command and began a new five-year mission. (EV comic: "Flesh of My Flesh")

When Spock joined the Enterprise crew (circa 2253) he had an ideological crash with the Vulcan, who showed no emotion or empathy for the crew. (TOS comic: "Alien Spotlight: Vulcans")

In 2254 Tyler was part of a landing party that boarded a Ngultor ship to rescue Captain Pike after the Ngultor had abducted him. (EV comic: "Flesh of My Flesh")

During the Enterprise's next mission, in the Marrat Nebula, following a transmission from Commodore Hal Wyeth giving Captain Pike some words of caution, Tyler commented that after so long on the front line "Ol' Wyeth" seemed to be getting jumpy. Pike conceded the possibility, but countered that Wyeth's local knowledge might be an invaluable resource. (EV comic: "The Fires of Pharos")

A short time later he was injured during the Kaylar coup on Rigel VII. (EV comic: "Our Dearest Blood"; TOS episode: "The Cage")


Tyler had a number of romances while on the Enterprise; he maintained a flirtaious relationship with his partner at the helm, Sita Mohindas. And from the moment Yeoman Mia Colt came aboard in 2254 he was attracted to her, though she did not learn this for some time. Later that year Colt finally learned of his feelings for her and the two dated for some time. (EV comics: "Flesh of My Flesh", "Immortal Wounds", "The Fallen")

In the same year he met Ecma of the Calligar, whom he would later marry. (TOS novel: The Rift)

At some point he was romantically involved with a princess from Kalajia VII, though he refused to tell anyone. [citation needed]




  • In the Early Voyages comic "Futures, Part One", Tyler sees a vision of himself commanding a starship in a movie-era uniform. This fits in with his appearance as a commodore in 2287 in The Rift.

José Tyler was a Starfleet officer on active duty in the 23rd century. Tyler served as the navigator aboard the USS Enterprise in 2254 under Captain Christopher Pike.

Tyler was among the landing party that visited Rigel VII, where he was among the injured crewmembers caught in a Kaylar ambush. He was later in the landing party that first beamed down to Talos IV and later, the volunteers who attempted to beam into the Talosian city to rescue Pike. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Parts I and II")

During the Enterprise and Farragut's battle with the temporally displaced Planet Killer, Tyler's skills in maneuvering and evading the weapon proved invaluable. (Star Trek: New Voyages: "In Harm's Way")


Star Trek: Daedalus

In the Star Trek: Daedalus continuity, Tyler was the son of Peter Tyler, as well as the grandson of famed United Earth Starfleet officer, Gerald Tyler. Sometime after his service aboard the Enterprise, Tyler married Maria Ortegas and eventually had a son, Cedric.

Tyler was still serving in Starfleet in the late 2280s, by which time he had achieved the rank of commodore. He eventually retired in the early 2300s, and died several years after his retirement. (Star Trek: Daedalus)
