He was serving aboard the USS Vasidrun during the Battle of Wolf 359.

By 2370 he was serving as a transporter operator aboard Spacedock. He was on duty late one night when Gedna Tachion beamed aboard to take a look at the USS Mowe.  Tachion came back the next day and offered him a billet aboard his new command, the USS Lionheart. ("New Orders")
