Lieutenant Commander Cavit

Lieutenant Commander Cavit
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Affiliation: Starfleet
Rank: Lieutenant commander
Occupation: Starfleet officer
Status: Deceased (2371)
Died: 2371
Played by: Scott Jaeck

Cavit was a Human male who served as a Starfleet officer until his death in the late-24th century.

In 2371, Cavit held the rank of Lieutenant Commander and was assigned as Captain Kathryn Janeway's first officer on the newly commissioned USS Voyager during its maiden voyage to the Badlands.

When Tom Paris came on board the Voyager to act as a mission observer, Cavit immediately displayed contempt for him, believing his criminal past did not afford him the right to be on board.

Later, during the mission to locate the Maquis raider Val Jean, Cavit manned the bridge tactical station in Lieutenant Tuvok's absence.

As the ship entered the Badlands, it was hit by a massive displacement wave, later found to have been generated by the Caretaker's array. As a result of the impact, Cavit was killed instantly and the Voyager became stranded in the Delta Quadrant.

Cavit was later replaced as first officer by Chakotay. (VOY: "Caretaker")

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

Cavit was played by Scott Jaeck. However, he received no on screen credit for his role in "Caretaker".

Apocrypha Edit

The novelization of "Caretaker" gives Cavit's first name as Aaron, stating that in the year 2358 he served on the USS Kingston, a Federation colony-relief transport, during which time his commanding officer was killed by the Orions. It also notes that, during the events of the episode, Captain Janeway makes a mental note to speak to him regarding his attitude towards Paris on the basis that he is a Starfleet officer and needs to act more professional.

Cavit also appears in the The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella The Third Artifact which recounts the Voyager's shakedown cruise in the year 2371. Cavit is revealed to have had a romantic relationship with USS Hood first officer Dina Voyskunsky before an acrimonious breakup in 2359. When the Hood comes to the Voyager's assistance following a series of system malfunctions, the two of them agree to get together at the conclusion of their current missions. Unfortunately, due to the events of "Caretaker", this never happens.
