He had hoped for a Sagan class first contact vessel, but was still thrilled with the USS Hargrave.

In 2365 the ship encountered a quantum singularity, heavily damaging the Oberth class science vessel, killing himself and several other crew members.  Rivers assumed command and managed to limp the ship at warp three to Starbase 41.  She later escorted his body home to his children.
