Captain Tobias Naros is a celebrated Federation Starfleet officer, scholar, and diplomat serving throughout most of the twenty-fourth century. The highlights of his recent career center around assignments as Executive Officer of the USS Orlando and the USS Orlando-A as well as Commanding Officer of the USS Yorktown. In these roles, Naros not only witnessed major events involving the Elyshan Cold War, the Hobus Disaster, unrest in the Romulan Empire, and growing awareness of the Yang Zutal, but played a key role in them also. He currently serves as Commanding Officer of the Legacy-class USS Yorktown, the sixth starship to bear the name.
Tobias played an integral role in helping to expose Commander Millstone and her involvement in covering up the use of Omega in an attempt to power an experimental slipstream drive. Later that year, he was one of the few Orlando crewmembers who did not fall prey to the illusions of anaphasic lifeforms that had managed to get into the Orlando's systems. Tobias had his first encounter with the entity known as Q shortly afterward. He had heard much about Q from others of his species as well as in his review of the logs of those Starfleet officers who had previously encountered the entity. Despite his attempts to keep an open mind, he did not seem too thrilled by Q's seemingly random antics amongst the Orlando crew. Q managed to strike a chord when he pointed out to Tobias that, though the El-Aurians are master listeners, perhaps their greatest weakness is that they are unable to confide in others.
Shortly after the Orlando helped to diffuse a tense standoff between Elyshan and Federation forces at Starbase 386, Tobias was approached by the now-Rear Admiral Androski to serve as the new first officer of the Orlando. Given his experience, especially aboard the Orlando, and his desire to serve his ship and crew to the best of his abilities, Tobias accepted the position. He continued to serve as the admiral's executive officer during the investigation into the assassination of Romulan Praetor Tal'aura. In early 2387, he was promoted to the rank of full commander for his dedicated service to both ship and crew.
