Henglaar is a Tellarite physician who previously served as the USS Excelsior's Chief Medical Officer. He also served under Captain Ian Quincy Knapp aboard the USS Devonshire during the Dominion War. He knows serves the CMO of the USS Cole, a Olympic-class medical vessel assigned to taskforce assembled in aid of Operation: Beta Shield, as well as acting a a Training Officer for a group of junior physicians under his command.
Dr. Henglaar served under Captain Knapp for three years ("Enemy Unknown, Part 2") before being assigned as Chief Medical Officer of starbase Deep Space 12 under Fleet Captain Jennifer Cole. Henglaar was transferred to Knapp's ship, the USS Excelsior as Chief Medical Officer, but retains a lab and offices aboard the space station as well. He enjoys relaxing away from Sickbay in his holographic re-creation of a 20th Century urban garden, a program that thus far, he has shared only with Counselor Myra Elbrey. (HF 2.01 - "Refugees")
Despite more than twenty five years since his flight training, Henglaar is apparently still a fair pilot. He's also a good shot with a phaser, striking one Grey foot soldier neatly between the eyes. (HF 1.01 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 1")
With a typical Tellarite personality, he is diplomatically described as "no-nonsense" and less flatteringly as "curmudgeonly." He plays a mean hand of poker, in the sense that when he loses (frequently), he gets mean. Unskilled as a fighter, he tends to lose his fights, and is now banned from most of the gambling facilities and all of the bars on Deep Space 12.
Because of his "bedside manner", his patients tend to be exceedingly healthy or very, very sick, the former so as to avoid having to go to Sickbay during his shift. (It has been rumored that a colleague has described Dr. Henglaar as having "a heart of radium. It's warm, but you still don't want to get too close.") After several years' exposure to the Ba'ku rings, Henglaar was cured of a relatively rare hormonal imbalance, resulting in a more mature (for a Tellarite) appearance.
Henglaar's mother is deceased. His brother Falo, ("Addictions") is currently serving time for being a major supplier of a particularly potent form of the illegal Venus drug. Falo himself had become addicted to the same drug he sneeringly sold to his customers, whom he despised as weak and stupid. Henglaar's niece, Falo's daughter, Silan, is currently under Henglaar's guardianship. Henglaar was the one who arrested Falo after an elaborate sting operation, bringing to a satisfying end their rather violent sibling rivalry. Henglaar has been married and divorced several times, making him somewhat of an expert on what not to do in a relationship. He recently encountered Sou, a Tellarite engineer from his past and her Klingon husband, Qu'Qul, with everyone surviving the experience mostly intact. Sou and Qu'Qul both serve aboard the USS Independence, also stationed at Deep Space 12. ("Entanglement")
Not many. Primarily consisting of Knapp and Elbrey, with Crewman Thalek having recently attached himself to Henglaar in what has been described as a case of "hero worship" after Dr. Henglaar saved Thalek's life. ("Coward's Death") Henglaar had previously believed that he was relatively difficult for the Betazoid Elbrey to telepathically read, a notion she quickly disabused him of, although he still disputes some of her assertions about him. His friendship with Knapp is that of two soldiers who survived a war in the same foxhole together.
CMO of the USS Devonshire
In 2375, Dr. Henglaar held the rank of Lieutenant. He first met one of his few close friends, then-Lieutenant Myra Elbrey, when an away team lead by Lieutenant Commander Rodriguez, and consisting of Lieutenant Paul Brickey and Dr. Henglaar rescued Elbrey from the derelict USS Rutledge during the Battle of Lapolis. Henglaar has the distinction of being one of the few people to kamikaze a starship into a Grey battleship and live. (HF 1.01 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 1")
CMO of Deep Space 12
CMO of the USS Excelsior
In 2377, Dr. Henglaar was promoted to Lieutenant Commander before being transferred to the USS Excelsior as its CMO. (HF 1.02 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 2") He assisted Toby Witzcak and Rayvan in the development of a psionic inhibitor as a defense against the Grey at the Battle of Devron. (HF 1.03 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 3")
In 2378, Dr. Henglaar performed emergency surgery on Lieutenant Luko after he was injured during his capture by Sha'kev. (HF 2.04 - "Great Starship Robbery") hile on leave on Risa with Myra Elbrey, Henglaar's rare condition presented itself, causing him to go through puberty. He subsequently treated Ensign Brad Rawlins, suggesting that he review the Inter-Species Mating Guidelines again. (HF 2.05 - "Encke") He treated a wounded Crewman Thalek and informed Captain Knapp of the Andorian "Coward's Death". He synthesized some hormones for Thalek until he could find a better treatment. He and Elbrey certified Thalek fit for duty. (HF 2.08 - "Coward's Death") After Captain Knapp was relieved of his command, Henglaar temporarily became the new executive officer under Commander Elizabeth Shelby. (HF 2.09 - "Worst Fears, Part 1")
In 2379, he treated Kaz and tried to console Aris about the recent events that have unfolded. (HF 3.01 - "Worst Fears, Part 2") He went to a meeting with the other senior Excelsior officers about how to save Knapp from the pocket fold. He warned that Knapp would not want them to sour his sacrifice especially if the Grey could be freed as well. He did not want Shelby to talk to Aris who he considered a murderer for the killing of his father by turning off the life support equipment. Henglaar was going to fight Shelby's request to release Aris. He warned her not make the same mistakes as Knapp. (HF 3.02 - "Worst Fears, Part 3")
