REQUESTED DEPARTMENT: Flight or Security

OFFICER, ENLISTED, OR CIVILIAN: Officer

DISCORD ID: NEOC#7401




CHARACTER AND BIOGRAPHY:
  • 2350: Born aboard Cait Spacedock (CSD) with parents serving aboard the Planet's spacedock.
  • 2350-2368: 18 Years (Starfleet Upbringing) Grew up around the enlisted security and damage control teams of the station. Was a mascot of the lower decks who had the unique experience of learning how much work was done to get the work of Station Operations wanted achieved.
  • 2368-2372: 4 Years Starfleet Academy Flight School
  • 2372-2376: Flight Control Ensign (Astronavigator), U.S.S. Yeager, one of the first Sabers fielded. In 2373, fought in Battle of Sector 001 under the command of Admiral Hayes. Engaged the Borg to defend Earth from their efforts to assimilate Earth. Initially we were overwhelmed and scrambling to hold the cube back to no avail. It would not be until the U.S.S. Enterprise-E along with its reinforcement fleet destroyed the cube. I had read the reports of the Borg, I had been told the stories by people who were at Wolf-359, but nothing could ever brace an officer for facing such a powerful and overwhelming foe.
  • 2376-2380: As LTJG, received a Special Commendation from the CAPT for thwarting an attempted smuggling operation of illegal volatiles that endangered the ship and crew. It was bad enough that diplomats were abusing their authority but also exposed that the ship's Chief of Security was assisting in the operation. Work saw the diplomatic credentials revoked of corrupt officials and the end of superior officer who, to this day, will never forgive the slight. Does not feel bad that they were stopped, feels bad that such a great security officer's career was effectively ended. Made LT on the back of that and was invited to transfer into the Security Division.
  • 2380-2384: Was transferred to Internal Security to assist the new Chief of Security. With special classes in forensics and administrative training was not the best security officer in the room, but made sure the best officer aboard was there; fellow officers nickname was "bulldozer": the sort of officer who removed obstacles and hindrances for those under command so subordinates could do their job. Eventually would make LTCMDR and become the new Chief of Security.
  • 2384-2388: On encouragement of Captain, cross-trained with the Chief Engineer and trained them in unique their command style. This experience revealed the intricacies of the engineering department as well as prepared for the track to own command.
  • 2388-2390: On recommendation of Captain and fellow LTCMDR in the Engineering Department, was made Commander.
  • Mid 2390: Assumed command when my previous captain was incapacitated over an alien world while we were attempting to detain a fanatic cult leader who was fermenting war on a pre-warp world against a neighboring warp-capable world. there was a desperation and frantic feeling by that point in the mission. By the end of the mission the cult leader was arrested by allied forces, at least one of the away team had perished, and thousands of local pre-warp inhabitants near the cult leader’s hideout were killed by the allied forces (in an attempt to destroy all the stolen property the cult leader had.)

    In a fit of righteous Caitian rage, ordered the Yeager to attack the alien ship. The vessel was a battle cruiser of advanced design and proved an incredible foe of firepower and raw engine strength vs the Yeager’s agility and its well-trained crew. The battle lasted long enough that nearby Starfleet vessels were able to rush to Yeager's aid (the USS Monitor & the USS Gallant). Many Starfleet lives were lost and the Captain of the Yeager perished during the chaos.

    Later that year, was court martialed for unnecessarily engaging in hostile conflict that resulted in bodily harm and death of sentient life: of special note was costing the life of the Yeager’s captain. Was demoted to present rank, transferred off the Yeager, and subject to 1 year of confinement and rehabilitation.
  • Mid 2391-2395: Assigned to flight duties over New Bajor in the Gamma Quadrant. Subsequently applied for transfer to Katra Station.
SAMPLE POST:

A’Thaton walked into his quarters and collapsed into a chair looking out on the view of New Bajor. Managing the traffic of the New Bajor system was either very boring and quiet or busy. No two days were the same. But, A’Thaton found himself finally able to adjust to his new posting.
 
As tired as A’Thaton felt the one who made it all much easier to tolerate stepped behind him and squeezed his shoulders. “Hey, long day?” Rahma’s voice was rich and deep and soothed him as much as her firm grip on his shoulders did.
 
“Busy day, but a good day.” he said, taking a paw and gripping one of her hands back. “Some civil captain was adamant that he could go whatever speed they wanted because some ambassador said they could.” He grinned a bit. “Commander was having none of it and I had to spend over an hour keeping traffic clear so the joyrider didn’t hurt anyone. But then Lieutenant…” and on he went recounting his day as he always did to Rahma.
 
Rahma in turn detailed her day of speaking with various local and visiting artists at the end of her last tour. For her, she was able to see the stars and hike with with him no matter where his career took them. That said, she knew her favorite Caitian was getting restless. "A'Thaton, have you thought about applying for a transfer?"
 
As he was standing by the replicator recycling their drinks, he looked over his shoulder. "I thought you liked New Bajor?"
 
"I do, but you've done your time by now you old Cat." She grinned and stood up to rest a hand on his arm. "You took this with no complaint, not a word. Went where ever they sent you. But it's been years and there's no shame in trying to chase the career you want." She took out a PADD from a nearby drawer and handed it to him. "I know one place that's looking."
 
A'Thaton read it over and grinned, "Oh, and there happens to be a new world with new art for you to admire? What a coincidence."
 
"Yeah, very big coincidence" she smiled back at him. "So you going to give a shot?"
 
"Katra Station," he scrolled through the document. "Seems like another station posting, then again it is a frontier posting." He ran a paw through his hair and mumbled more of his thoughts about the specs of the place and its protectorate. "I cannot see a reason not to. I just hope..."
 
Rahma took the PADD from him, "There's nothing to hope for, you know what you want." He grin widened as she backed away and waved the PADD at him teasing. "So are you gonna come get it?"
 
There was no better person for A'Thaton in the whole universe, a thing she reminded him of every day. He growled in response and chased her around the quarters like he was a young Cait all over again.

Okay, other than setting the end of this character's timeline at 2399 (current year) and adjusting events accordingly, I think it's good to go.

Sounds good, I'll update the background with a short sabbatical back at Cait followed by an assignment somewhere in the Alpha Quadrant before his tour at New Bajor. Also going to clean up some of the errors for the bio in addition to detailing when/how he met Rahma.

Looking forward to rejoining the efforts of the Katra!
