He grew up with his mother in San Fransisco, surrounded by a large extended family as well as many members of Starfleet.
In 2364 he enrolled in Starfleet Academy at the age of sixteen, due to high test scores and his family's influence. He was assigned to Rho Squad along with what would become life long frineds and future shipmates Graw Arkan and Jason Meadows. The latter had difficulty in piloting shuttlecraft, and on weekend passes he would take Meadows out in his family's shuttle for extra training.
While enroute to his new command, Garrett participated in a scientific mission using the Galaxy's Captain's Yacht.
On stardate .7 the Lionheart was hijacked by a Maquis cell led by Gerald Collins. In an effort to force Tachion to give him the vessel's command codes he had (andorian) slit Garrett's throat. ("Party-Crashers")
Tachion, Deict, Kolp, Meadows and Arkan escorted his casket escorted his body to his father aboard the USS Valley Forge. His body was placed in a modified torpedo casing and launched into space on a trajectory towards Earth.("Pall Bearers")
His mother enjoyed her life as a stay at home mother and socialite during his childhood.
His father's best friend was made his godfather upon his birth, and referred to as Uncle Ged even before he married his aunt Miranda. When Tachion recieved command of the Lionheart he requested Garrett as his Navigation Officer.
At the time of his death the pair had only been on one date, but she had confessed to Mala Corwin that she could see it getting serious.
