|Admiral Hayes (2373)|
|Played by:||Jack Shearer|
In 2373, Hayes contacted Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the USS Enterprise to inform him of the incursion of a Borg cube into Federation space. Over Picard's objections, Hayes then ordered the Enterprise to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone as Starfleet mobilized to intercept the cube, feeling that Picard's previous assimilation by the Borg would be a disadvantage in the confrontation. Picard later decided to break with his orders, however, and ordered the Enterprise to Earth to join the battle. Picard subsequently took command of the fleet when Hayes' ship was destroyed. (Star Trek: First Contact)
In 2374, a message from Admiral Hayes was included in an encoded data transmission sent to the USS Voyager through the Hirogen communications network. A forged version of the message was created by Arturis when he "decoded" the message, which led the Voyager crew to the fake Starfleet vessel USS Dauntless. Captain Kathryn Janeway was subsequently able to retrieve part of the real message from Hayes expressing his condolences over their situation, and thus exposed Arturis' ruse. Janeway described Hayes as a "good man, fine officer, a bit of a windbag." (VOY: "Hope and Fear")
In late 2376, Admiral Hayes sent another message to Voyager after regular communications were established through the MIDAS array, informing Janeway that they had dispatched two deep-space vessels towards Voyager's position and requesting information on the ship's mission and status of the Maquis. Janeway was troubled that Starfleet still saw the Maquis as a separate entity, since she now considered them all part of her crew. (VOY: "Life Line")
