Rivero, Jorge M.
Galactic Fleet Career Summary:
2090 - Promoted to Ensign and assigned to Flagship SS Galactica as assistant Medical Officer.
2093 - Promoted to Lt. Junior Grade and transferred to SS Conquistador as assistant Surgical Officer.
2096 - Promoted to Lieutenant and reassigned to SS Stargazer as Chief Medical Officer.
Lieutenant Rivero was 28 when assigned to the SS Stargazer as Chief Medical Officer.
Lt. Rivero distinguished himself as an excellent Physician and Trauma Surgeon, helping create new
emergency triage protocols during his service aboard the SS Conquistador. The Battle Cruiser sustained
serious damage and multiple casualties during a supply replenishment operation alongside a Galactic Fleet
Freighter after the docking clamps failed, resulting in explosive decompression. Lt. Rivero is credited with not
losing a single patient during that extremely serious incident. He is a dedicated Physician and career Galactic
Fleet Medical Officer. He's known to be very amiable, spending the majority of his time in the Stargazer's
Medical Department, and is well liked and respected by the ship's crew. He does not believe in specific
"medical hours" but has an open door policy of encouraging all crew members to contact him should they
have any questions or concerns, and to seek his immediate expertise should they become injured or not
feel well. Lt. Rivero is very close to his immediate and extended family in Mexico City, and has many friends
in San francisco and Stockholm, a result of his time in both cities before assignment to the fleet.
