Robert DeSoto was a human male Starfleet officer in the 24th century. He was known for his work as commanding officer of the Excelsior-class USS Hood and the Sovereign-class prototype USS Sovereign. As of 2385, DeSoto assumed the position of commanding officer of the Suzerain-class fleet carrier USS Shogun and concurrent Flag Officer-in-Command of Task Force Shogun, which was the unit of the Vanguard Fleet assigned to operate in the Gamma Quadrant.

ChildhoodEdit

Robert DeSoto was born to Starfleet Captain Mirabelle Brodeur and civilian physician Dr. Hiram DeSoto in 2304 on Earth.

Starfleet Academy lifeEdit

He attended Starfleet Academy in 2322, where he became a member of the Academy Go team, and team captain in his junior and senior years. His team won two out of four Federation championships during his time in the Academy.

Early Starfleet careerEdit

In the late 2320s, DeSoto, then a Lieutenant, served with Jean-Luc Picard, and the two became friends.

In 2355, he sent his condolences to Picard on the destruction of the USS Stargazer.

The USS HoodEdit

By 2361, he was already a Captain, and was commanding officer of the USS Hood.

As of 2371, DeSoto was married, and he and his wife made their home on the Rigel colonies.

By 2375, he was considered one of the most celebrated captains in Starfleet.

In early 2378, DeSoto was one of several Starfleet officers present at the first official debriefing of Captain Kathryn Janeway after her ship, the USS Voyager returned from the Delta Quadrant. DeSoto was also on the short list of high-ranking officers that may have been involved in the sale of intelligence and technology to the Orion Syndicate.

The USS SovereignEdit

In 2378, Robert DeSoto was reassigned to command the Sovereign-class prototype USS Sovereign, a post he soon relinquished. In 2380, he was back as the commanding officer of the USS Hood.

Vanguard CommandEdit

In 2385, Fleet Admiral Maximus Hunter picked DeSoto as one of the select Starfleet commanders whom he wanted to work with in the newly created Vanguard Command. He promoted DeSoto to the rank of Rear Admiral (lower grade) and assigned him as commanding officer of the Suzerain-class fleet carrier USS Shogun and concurrent Flag Officer-in-Command of the 54-starship strong Task Force Shogun, which was to operate in the Gamma Quadrant.
