Lieutenant Rork served on the destroyer Triumph as a Lieutenant Junior grade. He was then promoted to full Lieutenant. Lieutenant Rork is a career minded officer and always looking for the next posting to further his career.
While Stinger is a frigate, and considered a downgrade from destroyer duty, serving on a ship in Escort Group 23 was an honor that very few would pass up and a duty to have on their resume. Lieutenant Rork is a typical tactical officer: aggressive and loyal to his captain and ship, Stinger, above all else. While an asset to Captain McHohen, the Lieutenant does have the tendency to want to shoot first and ask questions later.
