Captain Ashford was the commanding officer of the USS Cairo.

In 2354, the Cairo was performing a survey of an uncharted planet along the Cardassian border, when the first officer was ambushed and killed by Cardassians. As a result, Captain Ashford named Lieutenant Commander Edward Jellico, who had served aboard the Cairo for several years, as first officer. When Ashford was killed during a Cardassian attack in 2360, Jellico was made captain of the Cairo. (TNG video game: Starship Creator)
