Lieutenant Johnathan Bucyrus was a Starfleet officer in the late 24th century. He was the leader of the flight team of the USS Hastings with the call sign "Bulldog". Presumed to have perished with the destruction of the Hastings in 2374, he was found by the USS Baldwin in 2377. (USS Baldwin: "Wild Roses")
He was on flight duty when a envoy of Jem'Hadar fighters and cruisers attacked the Hastings. During the battle, a fighter deliberately rammed the Hastings, resulting in the loss of the ship. No fighters or escape pods returned to Federation space.
Unbeknown to Starfleet, Johnathan survived the attack by jumping to warp blindly, sending him deeper into Cardassian space. He was picked up by a group of augment women, who transported him aboard their vessel. The women preferred to stay away from the fighting, so they settled down on a planet in sector 520.
In 2377, the crew of the USS Baldwin discovered his fighter adrift, and subsequently located him. Since he did not attempt to notify Starfleet that he had survived, he faced possible charges of desertion; however, Baldwin's legal affairs officer Sara Jackson suggested he plea to unauthorized absence and accept a reprimand.
Of the five sisters that rescued Johnathan, the youngest of them, Valerie, would become his closest companion during their "isolation." When Patrick asked him to be part of his team, Valerie asked if she could join him. By 2379, she had taken his last name, and was occasionally addressed as "Mrs. Bucyrus." (USS Baldwin: "That Kind of Day")
- In "Wild Roses," Johnathan indicated to Roslyn that he may ask Patrick to perform a simple wedding ceremony. However, whether or not Johnathan and Valerie had a wedding is left ambiguous.
At the academy, he was in basic fighter training with Roslyn. He thought her to be one of the most beautiful women he had seen; however, Roslyn was not interested in a relationship at the time, although she did suggest that he would find someone, and gave him the call sign "Bulldog." In return, he gave Roslyn the call sign "Firecracker."
Johnathan also had Sonya Fiehrer in flight training. During one evening, he saw Sonya coming out of late-afternoon dance class. He responded with a line from Van Morrison's song "Moondance," leading to its use as Sonya's call sign.
When Patrick Ingrum took over as the Hastings XO, the captain wanted Patrick to get to know the flight team. In his first day, Patrick identified a bogey as a cloaked mine. Johnathan would give him the call sign "Starrider."
