BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
Species: Human
Place of Birth:

Captain Willard Decker, son of Commodore Matt Decker, was hand-picked by Admiral James T. Kirk to captain the refitted U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 in 2269. Prior to his assignment on the Enterprise, he was stationed at Delta IV where he had a romance with a Deltan, Ilia. Decker later reunited with Ilia when she became the Enterprise navigator in 2271.

When Kirk convinced Admiral Nogura to grant him temporary command of the Enterprise to intercept the V'Ger entity, Decker was temporarily downgraded to executive officer with a rank reduction to Commander, something Decker protested "off-the-record."

When V'Ger threatened to destroy Earth unless is "Creator" came to it in person, Decker volunteered to go on behalf of the human race. He merged with V'Ger into a glowing, non-corporeal entity, ending his physical lifespan and presumably evolving into a new lifeform. Captain Decker is officially listed as "missing in action" as of 2271.
