Viggo timeline Edit
Robert Jeffries DeSoto, Joined Starfleet for adventure and exploration, but instead is a glorified bus driver for admirals and ambassadors being driven somewhere. Often goes by the nickname "Bobby D".
Bobby drinks a little too much whiskey to deal with the stress of having admirals constantly on board the Hood. Using the opportunity to make connections, though, for his future post-Starfleet attempt to become President of the Federation.
Bobby's middle name is a reference to a maternal great grandfather who is the Jeffries of Jeffries tubes fame.
