Ian was the Emergency Engineering Hologram used during the late 24th century by Captain Cristóbal Rios aboard La Sirena. He was one of several emergency holograms (the others being Emil, Enoch, Emmet, and Mister Hospitality), and appeared in the likeness of Rios, but spoke with a Scottish accent.

In 2399, Rios activated Ian to repair La Sirena while it was en route to Deep Space 12. (PIC: "Broken Pieces")
