Number One

Number One (TOS-00)
Number One (TOS-00)

First officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 under Captain Pike. Number One was allowed to beam down to Talos IV by the Talosians, in an attempt at breeding a group of Humans. A spiteful Vina said “they’d have more luck crossing [Pike] with a computer.” The Talosians, however, believed that her “superior mind would produce highly intelligent children,” observing that “although she seems to lack emotion, this is largely a pretense. She often has fantasies involving [Pike].”[1]

Number One preferred to use the traditional title of a ship’s first officer, rather than her name, Lieutenant Commander Eurelan Robbins. When questioned by Pike about the matter, she replied, “I’d prefer to keep my Christian name out of it, Captain. An old family curse.”[2]

Portrayed by M. Leigh Hudec (Majel Barrett Roddenberry).
