Personal History

Early Life

Kiron was born on Ktaris on the Earth date of June 24. Kiron’s mother and father met when Kiron’s father came to a conference on Ktaris two and a half years previously. After six months of knowing each other, Kiron’s parents married. Kiron’s father came back to Ktaris every six months until Kiron was born.

Shortly, after his birth, Kiron’s father and mother decided that they would move to Earth. Kiron’s grandmother had recently passed away, and Kiron’s mother was overcome with grief. The trip to Earth was mostly uneventful for the Hunters. They were threatened by some rogue Tholians on the way to Earth, but Kiron’s father managed to help talk their way out of it. They stopped at Starbase 15 on the way, and received transport the rest of the way by the USS Grenada, a refit Constellation Class vessel. The captain of the Grenada owed the Hunters a personal favor for something involving a sticky situation.

Baby Kiron arrived on Earth when he was seven months old. His parents decided that they would live close to where Kiron’s father grew up. The Hunters moved to Cambridge, or rather 10 miles outside Cambridge. It was there that Kiron gained an appreciation for academia that would stay with him through the rest of his life.

Kiron had a happy childhood for the most part. He played in a local park with a number of friends, and every night, his mother would tell him a story from her culture. He learned to speak Ktarian fluently, and often chatted to his mother. Kiron went to a local school when he turned six years old. Every night his father would help him go over his work. He began to be a leader in the class room. He was always one of the highest performing students in his school. When Kiron reached the age of 13 he headed off to boarding school. There he met one of his biggest inspirations in the rest of his life. Life at the boarding school was enjoyable for Kiron. He was the highest overall performing student, by far, and one of the teacher’s personal favorites. He came back home every Christmas and summer.

During the summer of Kiron’s 17th year, he was sitting at home waiting with his mother for his father to return home. When, suddenly, a man materialized before them wearing the insignia of a Star Fleet Captain telling them that Commander Hunter had be injured in the line of duty, and that he was in a local hospital and should be out soon. Kiron’s father had gone to a simple conference on Qo’nos, and Kiron and his mother couldn’t understand why his father had been injured. Kiron eventually found out, but he was in the Academy then. When Kiron’s father came home, covered with battle scars and wounds, he decided that it was time for him to retire from Starfleet. Even though Starfleet tried to keep their chief weapons designer from retiring, it did not work. Commander Hunter had had enough of Star Fleet.

Kiron went back to school a few weeks later still curious about what happened to his father. This curiosity spawned an interest in computers. Kiron had decided that one of the only ways to truly find out what happened to his father was to hack into Star Fleet’s system and find out for himself. He immersed himself in computer language and instantly became almost fearfully good, and he knew it. He also joined a team a school for those interested in science to build a space craft that could achieve warp. It was supposed to model how Zefram Cochran worked to build his warp ship. Kiron was assigned to work with the computer systems and the engines. Within the engines, he found another safe haven. He eventually was able to coax a hefty warp 3 out of engines designed to go warp 2. Needless to say, Kiron and his comrades won a top prize at their competition. During the flying portion of the tests, the ace pilot came down a week before with appendicitis, and Kiron was told to learn how to fly. He was the logical choice—good with computers. He learned to fly quickly, and impressed everyone. The judges at the event were stunned that Kiron’s team was able to get their ship twice as fast as they needed.

Time went on, and Kiron’s curiosity began to grow. In his senior year of high school, he decided it was time to make his attempt. One day Kiron took his computer to a safe place where no one could see what he was doing. There he set up a fake address for his computer, and circumvented the access codes for the Star Fleet database. The process was a good one, and Kiron never really did get caught, but he still did not find the information he was looking for. Although looking back at that day, Kiron now sees the impact it had on his life at the Academy.

Into the Red

The next year, Kiron entered the Academy in the top of his class. He managed to get close to some of the critical thinking records on his entrance exam, and overall made some good impressions of the instructors there. He arrived and was instantly pulled into the undercurrents of the Academy. He joined many extracurricular organizations, and when classes finally started for his freshman year, Kiron was ready. During first year at the Academy, Kiron took all of the introduction courses for someone who knew that that they wanted to study engineering or science. Finally, he decided that he would get a better chance to work with computers and craft if he majored in engineering, so at the end of the first semester, Kiron enrolled in the engineering program at the Academy. In the Academy, he specialized in computers—knowing anything and everything about them. He knew random viruses that might or might not have been used at some points, and even created some complex programs too. Finally, during the summer after his freshman year, he made some progress in his search.

An unnamed Captain approached him when he was sitting on a bench in the Academy grounds one day. Later this Captain revealed that Kiron had a space on the Red Squadron. Kiron had found a way to get his information.

Over the summer, he went to his father and told him about being recruited. Instead of being happy for Kiron for his commendation, his father looked forlorn. When Kiron asked him, the only response that he could get was, “That was how it started for me too.”

This startled Kiron, because he thought that his parents would completely support him on the Red Squadron. Kiron went back to the Academy and commenced his special classes at the Academy. He got his first assignment during his break. Kiron was to be chief engineering and operations officer aboard the Venture Class starship Kamikaze. His mission was to get the special ops officers to the Breen planet surface without being caught and get back. To do this, Kiron hacked into the Breen Computer system and had the massive fleet chase ghosts while the Kamikaze dropped the ops officers and picked them back up. On the way out however, Kiron, monitoring the communications between the Breen ships, noticed that one ship was on an intercept course for his ship. After two hits, his commanding officer, Cadet Baker, a cadet one year older than he at the Academy was killed. Kiron took command and got his ship out of trouble. During this duress, Kiron came into contact with another young cadet in the program who he did not know. Cadet Phoenix, as Kiron later found out, was recruited to the Red Squadron recently, and took second in command in the distress. After the trouble, the two became the best of friends, and they kept up their contact.

During his 3rd year at the Academy, Kiron continued his many studies and developed his computer talent even more. He took numerous computer theory classes and classes to identify viruses and trojans, some of which were much more selective than others. The whole time though, Kiron led a double life. At the Academy, Kiron was an astounding student who got everything right all of the time. In his other life, Kiron commanded missions of the Red Squadron for the Captain. The Captain did not release the names of the Red Squadron members to the staff for secrecy. Also, the members of the squadron used code names to identify one another. Kiron’s cohorts called him dat.

Finally, after another year of the same, Kiron graduated from the Academy with a degree in General Engineering, Computer theory, and Propulsion. After his graduation, he was offered a place by Commander Donovan to join Star Fleet intelligence, but Kiron declined. In fact, Kiron and his mother went on a trip to Ktaris for a year, a year in which Kiron took a break from school, except for piloting them out there. The two went to Ktaris in a ship that his mother bought from a Ferengi merchant which Kiron promptly scrapt and rebuilt in two weeks. By the time he finished, the “Raft” as he dubbed it was a warp 8 ship with a generator that would allow for vast maneuverability and range. At Ktaris, Kiron visited his family and decided which course he would follow. Finally, after much deliberation Kiron decided to enter the normal fleet to be a normal engineer. He wanted to rise to the top the correct way-because of hard work. Kiron was assigned to the Gettysburg for his first ship.

USS Gettysburg, BC-1863

Kiron Hunter's appearance on the Gettysburg, Nova, and in SFSIS

On the Gettysburg, Kiron was truly happy for one of the first times in his life. No longer did he have to lead a double life. Instead, Kiron could focus on research, and projects, getting to know people and finally make friends. It was a completely knew concept for him, and one that probably did not go over completely well.

Even though Kiron was happy, he still could not resist the urge to show off. Usually these displays were trivial, joking, but Kiron had a knack for going over the line. When Kiron reached Ensign, a new Chief Engineering Officer was assigned to the Gettysburg—Chris Eaglestone. Eaglestone, a hard disciplined man was just about as different as possible from the joking, show-off, cocky Kiron. At first, the two butted head over a number of incidents, including when Kiron decided to tilt the conference room table so that everything flowed towards the new chief.

Eventually these antics improved as Kiron’s respect grew for Eaglestone, but his lack of respect for authority did not. Eventually Kiron began to look up to Eaglestone, seeing him as a model to aim for, even if he was a bit study and had no fun.

During his time with Eaglestone, Kiron also began developing a new Starfleet program to emulate the Emergency Medical Hologram. Kiron’s creation, dubbed the Emergency Engineering Hologram, sprang to life with an interesting and quirky since of programmed humor. Kiron had also seen fit, as in omage to model the newly christened Dave, after Eaglestone. The only difference was that Dave had a gigantic afro, something which Eaglestone himself seemed to lack.

Eventually though, Eaglestone was replaced with another chief engineer, Terra Arking. At first, Kiron was incensed. He was clearly the logical choice for the position, but for some reason Starfleet had passed him over. As he found out later, Kiron was given an unsatisfactory on his ability to command due to an ‘attitude problem with authority.’ All this did was incense Kiron even more, and before he knew it, he had modified Terra’s replicator to only produce cauliflower and bloodwine.

It seemed that Kiron was not destined for greatness after all. He drifted about under the knew regime, missing his glory days with Eaglestone. Finally, after the Gettysburg was thrust into the future, Kiron was held in the brig by Rear Admiral Grant for disorderly conduct. During a subsequent search of his quarters, a substantial amount of stolen materials and alcohol were uncovered in his quarters.

Shortly after this incident, Kiron Hunter was logged as deceased having died in a transporter malfunction. For undisclosed reasons, Hunter was posthumously demoted to Lieutenant.

Life at SFIC

Lieutenant Hunter was found alive, and was recovered by Star Fleet Security. With his integration back into Star Fleet, he was transferred from the Star Fleet Engineering Corps to the Star Fleet Intelligence Corps under the command of Vice Admiral Whyte. His position under Whyte was listed as the chief intelligence analyst. During his tenure as SFIC, Kiron learned many new abilities-- for one, he became much more proficient at running and analyzing operations.

Kiron's life took a turn when he received a posting request from the Vice Admiral. Whyte decided to dispatch Kiron to the USS Sheridan for a mission of search and rescue.

USS Challenger, CX-1986

Hunter's return from the search and rescue marked a new turn in his relationship with Vice Admiral Whyte. Whyte beckoned him to the office and offered him a direct promotion to Captain in exchange for leading an Intelligence Project. This project, Project Challenger, was to be a concerted effort by SFIC to promote open scientific inquiry. With a newfound analyst, Jones at his side, Kiron began the daunting task of forming a core crew for the USS Challenger. Among the acquisitions were a captured, and expert tactician Michael Winchester, a current SFIC security operative Kamiro Deklos, one of the fields great scientists Isabella Ekman and a green engineer, who Kiron picked because he reminded him of himself.

The Drop (NOTE: This Entry Does Not Officially Exist)

It wasn't long after Kiron's new appointment as Captain of the Challenger that he met with Admiral Grant who asked him, to transport a package to a remote Romulan world-- Dhaliia. Though Kiron recognized the need to follow his orders from the ground up, he couldn't refuse the request to Grant, who, after all, had helped him reintegrate back into Star Fleet. A small team, including Winchester and Issai Qinthe, a civilian scientist boarded the Challenger's transportation, the USS Fleming and headed to the remote world of Dhaliia while the rest of the Challenger was on an expedition to the excavation sites of Orais Major.
