Dr. Quincy Tophet is the second scientist aboard the USS Nathan James. Initially, Quincy was secretly helping the Russian Navy against his own will, however, after he was discovered, he ceased all contact. After his wife, Kelly Tophet, and daughter, Ava Tophet, were rescued he started to be much more cooperative. In the Season 1 finale, he takes a bullet from Lt. Pete Norris to save a pregnant Kara Foster possibly others while on the bridge. As Kara, Doc Rios, and Slattery were treating his wound, he told them to hide the vaccine. When Norris threatened his wife and daughter to get the vaccine, Quincy reopened his wound and bled out to keep the Avocet personnel from getting their hands on it.
