Captain Andrea Riffin was a Starfleet officer in the late 24th century.

Starfleet careerEdit

In late 2374, an attack on the USS Nimitz resulted in the lost of most of the senior staff. Andrea subsequently took charge of the ship. Andrea took courage under pressure, something not overlooked by Captain Patrick Ingrum of the USS Baldwin. Captain Ingrum subsequently requested that Starfleet give Andrea the Nimitz. Starfleet accepted the recommendation and promoted Andrea to the rank of Commander on stardate 51746. The crew of the Nimitz was very accepting of the ship's new leader, something Alicia did not assume would be immediate. One of her strongest supporters was Katy Cassoday, who felt she would be a good executive officer. Partly because of that comment, Andrea gave Katy the first officer's position.

Andrea's first tour as a commanding officer was as part of a four-ship patrol alongside the Baldwin in early 2375. During a skirmish with 20 Jem'Hadar fighters, Alicia devised a plan with help from USS Ottawa captain Jenna Carson where Ottawa approached the Jem'Hadar swarm with Nimitz trailing. Ottawa then separated, with its three pieces spreading out while Nimitz proceeded straight ahead. The maneuver was successful in eliminating the remaining Jem'Hadar targets. (USS Baldwin: "Captain's View")

Andrea was promoted to the rank of Captain and was awarded the Grankite Order of Tactics on stardate 52069 in May 2375. (USS Baldwin: "Storm Front")

In 2377, Andrea was forced to abandon Nimitz when a computer virus commandeered the ship. Nimitz was subsequently found near Aloran IV. Andrea participated in an operation to retake Nimitz, personally manning Ottawa's tactical station. (USS Baldwin: "Backdoor")


Alicia loved to swim in her spare time. When Patrick informed her that she would be in command of Nimitz, she was swimming in an open pool simulation on Baldwin's holodeck. (USS Baldwin: "Captain's View")
