Va'Kel Shon was a male Andorian Starfleet officer who held the rank of Captain. He served as commanding officer of the USS Belfast and later the USS Enterprise-F.


Shon represented the Federation during the 2409 Borg Conference on Deep Space 9. (STO mission: "Second Wave")

Shon engaged the Jem'Hadar at Facility 4028. He managed to push them back but lost the USS Belfast and most of her crew. (STO mission: "Facility 4028")

After the battle, he was offered command of the newly commissioned USS Enterprise-F. He intended to turn down the offer, as he felt that Data should take command of the new ship. After meeting with Data, he changed his mind and accepted when Data encouraged him to take the command. (STO short story: "Unexpected Honor")

Shon's command of the Enterprise led the Andorians to feel that they had returned to prominence in the Federation. (ST magazine: "Star Trek Magazine #40")

In one of his first missions on the Enterprise, he led the assault against the Dominion fleet at Deep Space 9. The fleet was able to retake the station. (STO mission: "Boldly They Rode")

Sometime later, Captain Shon commands the Enterprise in missions to the Tau Dewa sector block, assisting in efforts to secure it against threats to the recently established Romulan Republic. (STO mission: "Tau Dewa Sector Patrol (Daily)")

Shon and the Enterprise were later summoned to New Romulus to be on hand for the activation of an Iconian gateway. The gateway activated, but a malfunction or misalignment triggered a seismic event, and Shon, Worf, and a party of Romulan, Federation and Klingon personnel were forced to escape through the gateway. They found themselves inside Storage Facility Z98. While investigating, Shon was captured by the Solanae and experimented on. He was rescued by Worf and one of the captains from the New Romulus alliance delegation. Shon, Worf, and the other survivors then stole a ship, the Obelisk 1, and made their escape through a gateway to the Jouret system where, fighting alongside the flagships of the Federation, Klingon Empire, and Romulan Republic, they engaged and defeated a fleet of Elachi vessels. After the engagement, Captain Shon advocated destroying the gateway, but relented, and was ordered otherwise, because the gate was in Romulan jurisdiction and the presence of Omega particles was detected on the other side. (STO mission: "Sphere of Influence")

Alternate timelineEdit

In an alternate timeline where the Klingon Empire conquered the Federation in the 2360s and was in turn conquered by the Dominion, Va'Kel Shon was the skipper of a freighter called the Belfast employed by the Tholian Assembly. He had a family in this timeline. During a stopover at a Tholian space station in the Azure Nebula in 2409, he encountered the alternate timeline counterpart of a captain from the prime universe, who may have convinced him to distract a Tholian guard so the captain could infiltrate the control center and free the USS Enterprise-C. This timeline was erased when the Enterprise escaped the station and returned to Narendra III in 2344. (STO mission: "Temporal Ambassador")



Shon is voiced by Dave Rivas.
