|Status||Active in the 2260's|
Alexander "Alex" Freeman was a Federation Starfleet medical technician on active duty in at least the 2260s. He was assigned to the USS Enterprise's Medical department during the latter part of James T. Kirk's first five-year mission as its captain.
Freeman and Peter Kirk had been together since their Starfleet Academy days. Shortly before the mission to retrieve information from the Copernicus, Peter asked Alex to marry him, and Alex finally accepted. Soon after they became engaged, Alex was stranded on the USS Copernicus and committed suicide to avoid being infected with Regulan Bloodworms. Lt. Freeman was posthumously awarded the Starfleet Medal of Honor and Silver Palm. A gentle man with a shy smile, his photograph still bears a place of honor in Peter’s cabin.
