Lieutenant Gen Rhys was a male Starfleet officer who was presumed dead by 2258 but continued to live in the late 32nd century.

In 2256, soon after the death of Commander Ellen Landry, Rhys was appointed chief tactical officer aboard the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain"). Although capable at his job, he was unable to prevent the destruction of the USS Gagarin amidst overwhelming Klingon forces. (DIS: "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum") In 2257, in recognition for his role in ending the Federation-Klingon War, Rhys was awarded the Starfleet Medal of Honor. (DIS: "Will You Take My Hand?") Afterwards he played a role in a number of missions, notably:

  • Rhys disabled a shuttle believed to be piloted by Spock using a class-five torpedo detonated 100 meters before impact. The shuttle was brought in by tractor beam. (DIS: "Saints of Imperfection")
  • Rhys was seen sparring with Commander Airiam through her POV-memory storage. Although he had been struck in the chest by Airiam's front kick, Rhys showcased his martial arts skills by counter-attacking with a hammer kick. (DIS: "Project Daedalus") He later attended Airiam's funeral. (DIS: "The Red Angel")

Rhys was among the crewmembers who volunteered to stay on Discovery, accompanying the ship and Michael Burnham into the 32nd century, to elude Control with no chance of return. He was afterwards presumed dead by Starfleet, based on the testimonies of the USS Enterprise senior officers. (DIS: "Such Sweet Sorrow", "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2")

In personal life, Rhys showed romantic interest towards Sylvia Tilly during a party on Discovery, but his advances were quickly rebuked as Tilly was currently in a "musician phase" and wasn't interested in men who didn't fit that profile. (DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")
