Captain Ramirez was the commanding officer of the starship USS Valiant.

In the early 2370s, he took several members of Red Squad on a tour of duty around the Federation.

In 2373, Ramirez met Jadzia Dax and Worf on Starbase 63. After Jadzia boasted with her Tongo skills, Ramirez managed to persuade her into playing a no-limit game. Ramirez, however, was a three-time Tongo champion, so Dax lost two bars of latinum to him. (DS9: "The Darkness and the Light")

In late 2373, Starfleet sent orders to Ramirez to gain information on a new Dominion battleship, that was believed to be near the Valiant's position.

The Valiant was in the Kepla sector when the Dominion War began. Consequently, Ramirez ordered the Valiant back to Federation space. On their way home, the Valiant encountered a Cardassian battle cruiser near El-Gatark. The two ships began to attack each other and both ships lost main power. Ramirez himself was injured with a punctured lung, but managed to get the Valiant's systems back online and the Cardassian ship was destroyed.

Just before he died, Ramirez gave Cadet Tim Watters a battlefield commission and ordered him to take command of the Valiant. (DS9: "Valiant")

The authors of the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 203) believed that there were two Captain Ramirezes, with a main entry for each.
