Personal History Ben is the son of two Former Starfleet Officers, who during the war, turned to the Maqui. Eventually they were killed by Cardassian soldiers during the war. As a small boy, he internalized his grief and his anger, and it became a driving force in his life. He was determined that the only way to fix the dangerous weakness that led the Federation and Starfleet into this situation and others like it (read as Treaty of Algeron) was to make changes from the inside, from a position of leadership.

He decided that the best way to avenge their deaths was to work his way into Starfleet, and get his hands on one of their Starships.

He threw himself into physical training and academic studies. He became a skilled fighter, and his driven personality also allowed him to be a natural leader to others around him.

When he eventually made it into Starfleet Academy, he felt like this was a major step along the path to his ultimate goal.

Graduating in the top 10 percent of his class, he was assigned to various Security, Tactical, and Intelligence posts over the years.

He always managed to find himself on the "front lines" of any combat situation his unit was involved in. Many accused him of having a death wish, others called him a "hothead" or a "glory hound", but the truth was, he was willing to put himself in dangerous situations in order to appear irreplaceable.

Eventually this driven, "do whatever it takes" attitude allowed him to rise to a department head on the USS Ticonderoga, and then 4 years later, he was given the "Commander's Exam" to allow him to server Bridge Watches, and was put in the pool of available officers for Executive Officer postings.

After 6 months, he was chosen as the XO of the USS Firebird. He served in this role with distinction and received several commendations, for the next 4 and a half years. Captain Thompson has now put him forward for consideration for his own Command.
