Number One was a Human female in the 23rd century who served in Starfleet. She was best known for serving as first officer of the USS Enterprise under Captain Christopher Pike.



Number One was born on Ilyria. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Glory)


The Yorktown

In 2250, she was posted to the USS Yorktown as executive officer, under Christopher Pike, who called her "Number One" as a sort of joke; it being an old term for executive officer (TOS episode: "The Cage"). She transferred with him to the USS Enterprise in 2251, even though she had hoped for command of a science vessel or medical frigate (EV comic: "Flesh of My Flesh")

According to Vulcan's Glory, the two had served together for four years as of 2254.
The short story "Chaotic Response" suggests that she did not become first officer until sometime after 2252, at which time she was called "Number Five".

The Enterprise

Number One leading the rescue party aboard the Ngultor ship

In 2254, following an attack by a mysterious alien race, the Ngultor, Number One led a landing party to rescue Captain Pike from Ngultor captivity (EV comic: "Flesh of My Flesh"). One the Enterprise's next mission, in the Marrat Nebula Number One led another landing party, this time to investigate a loss in communications at Starfleet's Project Pharos. Shortly after beaming down the party came under attack from Klingons, Number One used the transporters to beam in behind the Klingon attackers and neutralize them before rescuing a team of Starfleet engineers the Klingons had been holding captive. (EV comic: "The Fires of Pharos")

Following a disastrous visit to Rigel VII Number One and the Enterprise found themselves visiting the mysterious planet Talos IV where Captain Pike was taken captive by the native Talosians. Determined to rescue the Captain Number One once again led a rescue party. Unfortunately the Talosians were able to manipulate the Enterprise's transporters delivering only Number One and Yeoman Colt into the Talosian habitat. The entire party later escaped. (TOS episode: "The Cage")

Not long after, Pike left Number One in command of the Enterprise while he lead a landing party to Darien 224, she was forced to take the starship into battle when they were attacked by the USS Cortez which had been commandeered by a group of hostile Vulcans. The Enterprise stopped at Deep Space Station K-12 to receive repairs following the incident and Number One was left in charge again when Pike left for Earth after hearing his father was ill. However, it soon became apparent that the message had been faked, unfortunately the message was too degraded to track it to its point of origin - fortunately someone sent a screened untraceable message to the Enterprise informing them of Pike's location and Number One was able to take the Enterprise to rescue him from his Klingon adversaries who had set the trap. (EV comics: "Cloak and Dagger", "The Flat, Gold Forever")

She was offered command of the USS Nelson in 2255, but turned it down, preferring to remain under Pike on the Enterprise. (EV comic: "Futures, Part One")

By 2264, Number One still served aboard the Enterprise under Pike. Following Pike's decision to accept promotion to "fleet captain" and reassignment, Number One agreed to remain behind and continue as first officer under James T. Kirk. Unfortunately, days before the change-of-command ceremony, Number One had an accident in the ship's cargo hold, where a cargo container fell onto her and crushed both her legs. Thankfully, she received prompt medical treatment from Dr. Boyce but her long recovery meant that she couldn't serve as Kirk's first officer. (TOS comic: "All Those Years Ago...")

Following her recovery, Number One finally received a command of her own. (TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure)


In 2254, her father died; she was consoled by Spock on her loss. [citation needed]

She harboured fantasies for Pike for some time, and these were exposed to him by the Talosians in 2254 (TOS comic: "The Cage"). Normally, however, Number One was strictly logical, masking her emotions. One area of obsession for her was computers. In 2254, she assisted Lieutenant Spock in installing computer upgrades that made it voice-interactive. They used her voice as a base pattern, something which later carried over to all Starfleet computers (TOS novel: The Rift).

The Name

Since the character of Number One was never given a "real name" in "The Cage," what her name is has remained a point of inconsistency in the fiction. Several alternatives exist:

  • Vulcan's Glory states that she is from Ilyria and her name actually is "Number One."
  • In The Rift, Pike states her name to be unpronouncable.
Morgan in 2379
  • The Star Trek: New Frontier character of Morgan Primus, an immortal being, appears to be Number One (ie. Primus = One). The resemblance was hinted at several times by Peter David in the novel series and NF comic: "Double Time", and visually confirmed by Morgan's identical appearance to Number One in the NF comic: "Turnaround, Part I".
  • Morgan Primus was revealed as the mother of Robin Lefler in New Frontier. Jerry Oltion's stories, Where Sea Meets Sky and "Conflicting Natures", although set in a much earlier time frame, identify Number One as using the surname "Lefler" in reference to the New Frontier series, although his stories predate the relationship with Robin Lefler's father, Charles.
  • According to the Star Trek: Early Voyages comics, her last name is "Robbins". In the first issue Pike starts to say her first name once, but is interrupted, getting as far as "Eure--".
  • According to author Brad Ferguson's original manuscript for A Flag Full of Stars, the character of Admiral Timothea Rogers was intended to be Number One, although this is not directly stated in the published version of the novel.
  • In the short story Chaotic Response, the character used the name to constantly remind herself how far she had to go in the chain of command, having come on board the Enterprise using the name "Number Five". However, as this part of the story was a part of Spock's dream sequence, it may not actually be applicable to the character at all.
  • In the John Byrne comic Assignment: Earth there is a woman called Diana Winters, who works as agent "Number One" to forces unknown, and she looks similar like our Number One.

Alternate universes

In one alternate timeline, Number One died tragically in 2254, injured so badly she could not even beg to be put out of her pain. (Star Trek: Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)

Number One was a Starfleet officer on active duty in the 23rd century. (Star Trek: Early Voyages comics; TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I", "The Menagerie, Part II")


Early life

Born on the colony world Ilyria IV and awarded the honorific Number One as the best intellect of her birth year. (TOS novel Vulcan's Glory)

The Orion Press novel Drink Deeply states that Number One was from Betazed.

Starfleet career

As a young officer in Starfleet, she went by the name Eunice Robbins. (Star Trek: Early Voyages comics)

Perhaps because being called Number One when NOT first officer would be confusing.

In 2251 she transferred with Christopher Pike to the USS Enterprise and served as his first officer. He addressed her as Number One in this capacity, reviving a traditional nickname used by captains in the maritime navies of Earth for their executive officers. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I", "The Menagerie, Part II")

When Pike reliquished command of the Enterprise to James Kirk, Number One was assigned a command of her own. (TOS novel Enterprise: The First Adventure)

In the 24th century, a human immortal called Morgan Primus may be the same person as Number One.

In the New Frontier novels, Peter David plays with Primus's physical resemblance to Lwaxana Troi, Christine Chapel, Number One, and even the computer's voice—all characters played by Majel Barrett. He has since stated that Primus is not the same person as Chapel.


It was revealed during the Talos IV mission that she also harbored an attraction for Pike. She eventually married José Tyler. If she is indeed Morgan Primus, she has a single daughter, Robin Lefler. (Star Trek: New Frontier novels)
