|Title:||Chief of the Navy|
|Affiliation:||Democratic Republic of Bajor|
Rohan Riva is the commanding officer of the naval forces and deputy chief of all military forces of the Democratic Republic of Bajor. Her military career spans four decades, including service to Starfleet, the Alliance Defense Force, and most recently the Bajoran Defense Force. During her tenure as a Starfleet flag officer, she gained the respect of many Klingon officers in her serve as flag officer of the Qo'noS sector.
Rohan grew up on Bajor during the Cardassian Occupation, and she lived a rough life as the daughter of two resistance fighters. Fierceness and loyalty were instilled in her from an early age, and she learned to use a rifle when she was still in single-digit ages. In her adolescence and adulthood, she fought hard as a member of the Bajoran resistance to protect her homeland from the Cardassians. However, she was captured and tortured in 2365 and was enslaved as an ore processor aboard Terok Nor until the Cardassian withdrawal in 2368.
After her release from the ore processing facilities aboard Terok Nor, she found herself at a loss for what to do with her life. The galaxy was in turmoil, and although Bajor had been freed, that really was not the truth with the eminent danger from the Borg. She made application for Starfleet Academy, and she was accepted.
Her Starfleet career began as a tactical officer, and she earned many commendations for her engagements with the Borg. She eventually gained command experience by being appointed Chief of Security and Second Officer of a starship. This led to a promotion to executive officer and ultimately commanding officer and the rank of Captain.
She was admitted to the admiralty in 2396 as a Branch Admiral and assigned as deputy commander of the Qo'noS sector. Four years later, she was promoted to Rear Admiral and assigned as the flag officer of that sector, a position she retained until her resignation from Starfleet in 2404 at which time she was installed as the Deputy Chief of the Defense Force and Chief of the Navy.
