Dr. Hugh Culber
FULL NAME:Dr. Hugh Culber
CURRENT RANK:Lieutenant Commander
CURRENT ASSIGNMENT:Staff Physician, U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031-A
PLACE OF BIRTH:Hugh Culber is a staff physician on the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031. He joined the crew when his partner Paul Stamets was drafted into Starfleet in 2256.
In 2256, Culber was killed in action by Lt. Ash Tyler when Culber discovered that Tyler had been surgically altered to appear as human. This activated the Klingon personality's defense mechanism and Tyler/Voq killed Culber by snapping his neck.
He was posthumously awarded the Starfleet Medal of Honor along with the U.S.S. Discovery crew for his efforts in helping to end the Federation/Klingon war.
In 2257, the U.S.S. Discovery crew found a seemingly ressurected Hugh Culber trapped in the mycelial network. The jahSepp lifeforms who reside in the network helped the Discovery crew transport him out of the network.
He was subsequently reinstated for duty by Captain Christopher Pike. He was approved for a transfer to U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, but disappeared with the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery during the battle with Section 31 Control in 2257.
In 3189, he aided in the rescue of Su'Kal from the dilithium planet in the Verubin Nebula.
