Seff Tiernan O'Rourke was a Human Starfleet Officer serving inthe 24th century.
Born in 2346 to one of the Keltic Confedeartion's powerful ruling clans, The O'Rourke's, he grew up wealthy and privileged on New Ireland. Unfortunately his mother died in childbirth and the career of his father Richard kept him away most of the year. He was a michievous and rebellious child, mainly raised by the household staff until 14, when he was sent to a prestigious military academy.
(RECORDS SEALED BY KELTIC CONFEDERATION HIGH COURT)
In 2364 he was arrested on Vulcan as he landed a cargo shuttle containing disrupter rifles believed to be enroute to the Vulcan Isolationist Movement at the Shir'Kahr spaceport. While awaiting trial the USS Thomas Paine arrived at Vulcan for shore leave. CAPT Rixx visited the court and arranged a deal: O'Rourke sign a confession as to what he knew of the cargo's origins and enlist in Starfleet.
The next day a shuttle carrying O'Rourke, Rixx and two security officers left Vulcan for Tellar.
Upon arriving to Tellar's Recruit Trainsing Center O'Rourke was processed in, and trained as an enlisted member of Starfleet. High test scores and his natural ability for piloting would have seen him sent on to Officer Candidate School if not for the circumstances of his enlistment. Instead he next headed for Shutle Flight Training on Andoria.
After Andoria he was assigned to the courier USS Tybalt.
After Starfleet Officer Candidate School he was assigned to the USS Cario.
By 2371 he was a LT and a test pilot for the USS Talon aboard Starbase 315.
