|Starfleet Service History||Eza was born 2360 to Misnea and Jadzem Bergen on Trill. Their third child Jadzem was a Starfleet officer, serving as XO of the USS Georgia at the time, and Misnea was a recently elevated Judge on Trill.
As Jadzem was serving most of Bergens early years were spent on Trill being raised mainly by his father. As he was entering school his mother retired and settled on Trill with the family, just as his older Brother was heading into university.
Growing up Bergen was an inquisitive child, his mother's sister a Scientist always helped foster this curiosity and would often take him with her on scientific expedition as he was entering his teens.
Somewhat introverted, Bergen struggled a bit with friends in school, preferring to maintain a small close knit circle of friends as he grew older. His scores on his exams were enough to earn him an offer from the Trill Science Institute, however he opted to take the Starfleet entrance exam and was accepted into the Science stream.
The academy life proved to be a significant switch for Bergen. He threw himself into the academic work, but sacrificed the social aspects. Entering his second year he had few if any real friends, and considered dropping out. His sister, Sanyda, a serving Starfleet officer talked him out of withdrawing, and pushed him to try to be more social.
Joining the Chess club and Tennis team helped Bergen come out of his shell, by the time he graduated the Academy he was Captain of the team and head of the chess club. Graduating opted out a Fleet appointment and returned to Trill being accepted into the Exobiology Doctoral program at the Trill Science Institute.
His advisor, a Starfleet Commander T'Pyll, who had recently completed the Vissa Fellowship on her homeward of Vulcan, pushed the team very hard, the expectation was at least 15 hour days, and while many in the cohort advised by her dropped or transferred to other advisors Bergen threw himself into the work. He completed his PhD in two years, and successfully defended his thesis on the effect of warp travel of space based lifeforms.
He was then assigned as an Exobiologist aboard the Cardiff-class USS Eindhoven. The Eindhoven was preparing to undergo a three year deep space exploration tour into rimward region of the Alpha quadrant high in the galactic plain. The Eindhoven under the command of Captain Eugenia Koltz, an experienced explorer and scientist. The ship completed in-depth survey and mapping of over a 1000 light-year, and made first contact with 13 different races. Two years into the mission Bergen was promoted to Lieutenant JG and made Assistant Chief Science Officer. He also completed post-doc research on the effects of extragalactic radiation on humanoid life-forms.
When the Eindhoven returned to Federation space she underwent a 3-month refit and was then assigned to a joint exploratory group with the Cardassians conducting research on several local phenomena with the union.
In mid 2389 the Eindhoven went in for an extended refit following heavy damage due suffered while surveying a binary pulsar, Bergen was then assigned as Assistant Chief Science Officer aboard the USS Ulysses.
