Heihachiro Nogura was a seasoned, and much respected Starfleet officer who served in the 23rd century.

Starfleet ServiceEdit

Nogura entered Starfleet in the early 23rd century and became good friends with George Samuel Kirk, Sr. and his wife Winona Kirk. Nogura was often a frequent visitor to the Kirk's home in Iowa, Earth and had a lasting effect on James T. Kirk as a child. [citation needed]

His home on Earth was in the Colorado Rockies, where he liked to greet the dawn from its porch. (VAN novel: What Judgments Come)

While in Starfleet service, Nogura once had a starship shot out from under him. (VAN novella: In Tempest's Wake)

In 2266, Admiral Nogura was assigned to command Vanguard following the arrest of Commodore Diego Reyes and remained the commander of the station through 2268. (VAN novels: Open Secrets, Storming Heaven)

Nogura Tal Federation 1

Aboard the dreadnought USS Federation in 2269, Admiral Nogura and Romulan Subcommander Tal discuss possible joint espionage against the Klingon Empire.

Three years later, in 2269, Nogura took personal command of the Starfleet dreadnought USS Federation in order to disrupt a potential Klingon/Romulan military alliance, and not long afterward led a task force aboard Federation in Gorn space, dealing a severe blow to the Klingons and rescuing the damaged USS Enterprise in the process. (TOS - Year Four: The Enterprise Experiment comics: "The Enterprise Experiment, Part 1", "The Enterprise Experiment, Part 4", "The Enterprise Experiment, Part 5")

Nogura became Commanding Officer, Starfleet Command in 2270, following the Rittenhouse Scandal. Following the scandal, Starfleet's reputation was shattered, and some believed its very existence was threatened after the Federation Council lost faith. With Nogura's formidable attitude and brilliant reputation, he was judged the perfect man to restore Starfleet to its former glory. (TOS novel: The Lost Years) Nogura also ordered Capt. Kirk to proceed with the signing and treaty with the Archernarians. (TOS comic: "Mission's End, Issue 2")

The Lost Years established that Nogura had retired from Starfleet in the 2250s, only to be pressed back into service in 2270. This is incompatible with several of his other novel appearances during the five-year mission timeframe.

During his tenure as Commanding Officer, Nogura was affectionately known as "The Old Man," but in some circles he was referred to as "God Himself," because of his formidable air, and his ability to get the job done. (TOS novel: The Lost Years)

In 2281, Nogura talked to José Mendez about keeping James Kirk from involving himself in the investigations of the kidnapping of several Warrantors of Peace. (TOS novel: Dwellers in the Crucible)

Six years afterward, in 2287, Nogura was involved in the politically-motivated trial of James T. Kirk on Earth, which attempted to discredit the captain through an assassination attempt against the visiting Klingon Emperor. (TOS comics: "...Gone!", "Let's Kill All the Lawyers")

In early 2289, Nogura authorized the USS Enterprise-A to covertly investigate a possible connection between the expansionistic Pilkoran government and the Romulan Star Empire near the Neutral Zone. (TOS comic: "Where There's a Will")

In 2293, Nogura reviewed Hikaru Sulu's violation of orders and Klingon space. (TLE novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire)
