Hendricks was a Starfleet admiral in the late 24th century.

In the 2350s, Hendricks taught at Starfleet Academy. One of his star students was Kathryn Janeway, whom he knew would go far.

In 2378, he contacted the then-Captain Janeway while her ship, USS Voyager, was stuck in the Delta Quadrant. Among the topics that they discussed were the Voth. He commented on how he knew she'd go far, which Janeway replied "A little farther then I expected, Professor". He then went on to talk about the real reason he contacted her, that Voyager was in the vicinity of where Starfleet Command believed the 21st century probe Friendship 1 was. He assigned her Voyager's first mission in seven years, to retrieve the probe. (VOY: "Friendship One")

Hendricks was played by Peter Dennis.
His name comes from the script.
