This character is a member of the La Forge family.

George La Forge was the first in a long line of distinguished Starfleet officers of the La Forge family. His descendants included Geordi La Forge.


By the year 2165, La Forge was a captain in command of a starship in the Federation Starfleet. Admiral Jonathan Archer considered him among the captains he trusted out in the field. (ENT novel: Live by the Code)

As admiral, George La Forge had commissioned the light cruiser USS Detroit at the dawn of Starfleet's history. (TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool)


  • According to James T. Kirk's inner monologue, Admiral George La Forge had commissioned this ship 270 years prior to Kirk's command of the USS Enterprise -- or in the 1990s, by the currently accepted dating of TOS. The "USS" prefix for the Detroit would suggest La Forge commissioned this ship for the Federation Starfleet, as opposed to the United Earth Starfleet.
