Rivers was a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, who was assigned to the Icarus Base in 2009.

He and roughly 80 people were forced to evacuate Icarus Base during an attack against the base by three Lucian Alliance Ha'tak vessels. He ended up on the Destiny, an Ancient spaceship located several billion light years from Earth. (SGU: "Air, Part 1")

He was one of the people who shared intimate encounters with Dr. Lisa Park. (SGU: "Life")

Rivers was killed during the Lucian Alliance invasion of Destiny by Commander Kiva. When the Alliance first invaded the ship and stormed the outlying areas of the Gate Room, Rivers, and several other expedition members, were taken captive. Later, during a tense medical supply exchange, Destiny was hit by a burst of radiation from a nearby star system. Thinking the loss of power to be an ambush attempt, Kiva executed Rivers immediately upon returning to the Gate Room. Later, during a prisoner exchange, the expedition released four Alliance members. However, rather than receive four civilians in exchange as they had hoped, the expedition was given two civilians, a soldier and Rivers' dead body. He was the expedition's fourth casualty.
