Mark Cheney was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Stardate 15411.10 to Katie and Jethro Cheney. Live a relatively normal life until he decide to enlist in Star Fleet after high school at the age of 18 against his parents' wishes.
By the time he completed his basic training and secondary schools, the Federation had become involved in their first war with the Romulan Star Empire. He served aboard several starships during the war as a security officer. After the war, he was assigned various ship and starbase duty.
In 2378, after acheiving the rank of chief petty officer, he decided to attend Officer Candidate School. Two years later, he graduated from OCS and was promoted to the rank of ensign. After three more years of starship duty, he was promoted to lieutenant junior grade and assigned as Chief of Security of a Federation frigate at the beginning of the First General War.
When the war was over, he was promoted to lieutenant and recruited by Frank Matello to join Star Fleet's Criminal Investigations Division (CID). As a 'probie' (probationary field agent), Mark distinguished himself as a skilled and determined investigator who used very unorthodox methods to solve crimes. It was around this time that his wife filed for divorce because she thought Cheney cared more about his work than he cared about her.
In 2403, Frank Matello retired from CID and Cheney was promoted to lieutenant commander and assigned as the supervisory special agent for the Major Case Response Team (MCRT), which handles cases involving murder, terrorism, and espionage.
