History of the role

Past officeholders

In 2371, the post was held by Admiral John Harriman, who was at the time considering retirement and attempting to persuade Captain Montgomery Scott to take his place.

By 2375, Scott did take over for Harriman, but found the job not to his liking, frequently delegating his duties to his assistant, Commander Leland T. Lynch.

In August 2375, Scott went on inactive duty, causing Lynch to take over temporarily, though Scott continued to serve in an advisory capacity.

In March 2376, Lynch resigned, and Vice Admiral William Ross persuaded Scott to take over full-time that April.

Miles O'Brien was made head of the SCE in 2401. He was the first non-commissioned officer to hold the post.
