Hermes is the helmsman for the electronics vessel Celestra.

Following Commander Kronus' award ceremony, Hermes aids Celestra's executive officer, Charka, in his mutiny against Kronus. This aid includes following Charka's orders to shut down all forms of electronic tracking, thus preventing Kronus from finding the Celestra once beyond the "point of no return". Unfortunately for him, Apollo, Starbuck, Kronus and the octet of mutineers manage to overpower Charka's supporters, including Hermes, when retaking Celestra's bridge (TOS: "Take the Celestra").


  • The name "Hermes" is derived from Greek mythology. Hermes was the messenger of the gods, usually depicted with winged sandals, a hat, and a caduceus. Usually identified with the God of Mercury. No relation to Celestra's Hermes in any way, shape or form.
