Egan Murdock was a Kelt living in the 24th century.
During his service he was posted to several ships on the Romulan border, rising to the rank of Commander and his final posting in the regular Fleet was as Executive Officer of a boomer. In 2325, instead of recieving a command he was transferred to Romulan counterintelligence.
While leaving orbit of New Irleand in 2362 he saw a diplomatic shuttle being chased by a pair of sentry craft. An escape pod ejected from it, and the sentries continued chasing the shuttle. Bringing it aboard, he found a young Kelt nobleman aboard in need of asylum.
