For the currency amount also known as a "bob", please see shilling.

Bob was a Human Starfleet officer in the 23rd century. He was a flag officer with the rank of Fleet Admiral in 2287.

That year, he ordered the USS Enterprise-A to planet Nimbus III to rescue three ambassadors who had been taken hostage by the Vulcan renegade, Sybok. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Background Edit

Bob was played by Star Trek film writer and producer Harve Bennett wearing a Starfleet uniform with a fleet admiral's rank insignia. He was referred to solely as "Bob" by Kirk, referenced in the script as "THE STARFLEET COMMANDER" and, in a line cut from the film, he was identified as a Starfleet Operations officer. [1]. The end credits listed the character as "Starfleet Chief of Staff".

The name "Robert Bennett" was adopted by the Star Trek Encyclopedia and was later adopted by StarTrek.com's article on him, as well as non-canon novels written by William Shatner (with Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens). In J.M. Dillard's novelization of Star Trek V the character was named "Bob Catfisch" and had been, at one point, Kirk's subordinate at Starfleet Command.

His mirror universe counterpart appeared in the novel The Sorrows of Empire.
