Taurik is a Vulcan engineer serving in Starfleet, first introduced in the TNG episode, “Lower Decks“. In 2370, he was an Ensign aboard the Enterprise-D. He has a knack for warp drive and warp theory, and may sometimes get on the nerves of his supervising officer.
Beta canon establishes that he is a twin to Vorik, who was aboard Voyager when it was lost in the Badlands. He has participated in missions where he served as both pilot and engineer, and was assigned to the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards when the Enterprise-D was destroyed. He later becomes a bridge officer in the beta canon aboard the U.S.S. Aizawa, and was captured by the Cardassians and involved in some intrigue during the Dominion War. He was promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 2382.
But you can use Taurik however you like in your own campaign. He would be a great pilot/engineer character for a player or as an NPC.
