Commander Erika Benteen served at Starfleet Command as an adjutant to Admiral Leyton in 2372. Around Stardate 49170, Leyton promoted Benteen to the rank of captain and assigned her to command the U.S.S. Lakota NCC-42768.[1] Although Benteen was loyal to Leyton and supported his attempted coup of the Earth government, she refused to obey an order from Leyton to destroy the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205.[2]
