Lieutenant Rowe was a male Human Starfleet officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served in the operations division aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during a historic five-year mission. In 2268, he served as one of the ship's security officers.
That year, Rowe was sent to the Auxiliary Control Center during its takeover by Norman to check out an intruder alert that had been triggered by the android. There, he found Ensign Jordan unconscious and gave instructions to three other officers to see to Jordan's care.
