ST11 Timeline

On Stardate 2233.04, the Romulan ship Narada emerged from a rift in spacetime that had transported it 154 years into its past. The Narada immediately attacked the Kelvin, pausing only to allow Captain Robau to travel over to the more advanced ship via shuttlecraft. The Romulans pressed him for information, but when it became clear that they had traveled through time, their captain, Nero, killed Robau and resumed the attack.[2]

Portrayed by Faran Tahir.[2] The character was named “Pierre Robau” in the novelization, but the film gives his first initial as “R,” and other sources refer to him as Richard.
