|Personal History Before Starfleet||Ziq Chura was born in 2365. When he was a week old he was left outside a local hospital on Bularus with a note saying to look after him while his parents were away on holiday.
Due to DNA testing his parents were traced, found and faced prosecution for abandoning a child. Later they were sent to prison for 10 years for their crime.
With this Ziq was placed into the Bolian Child Care system. Unfortunately, he never found a family. He spent the first 16 years of his life living in child care homes, which he often ran away from just to find his own space.
At the age of 16 he was released from the BCC and told to fend for himself. He quickly fell in with the ‘wrong crowd’ and became a regular visitor of the local law enforcement. This group taught him how to manipulate computers and gain access remotely, reconfigure programs to act in different ways and how to override lockouts. Chura began to get into trouble over petty crime, stealing data, transferring credits from peoples accounts and stealing hover vehicles and shuttles.
A few months shy of his 18th birthday, Ziq hacked into the Federation mainframe. Why? Just because it was there and he was bored. He found it amusing to change high ranking Starfleet Admiral’s names or ranks in the database.
Starfleet Security tracked Chura down and he was arrested. The Starfleet Commander in charge of the Starfleet operation was impressed with how the young man had managed to break into the mainframe like he did. Reviewing his local criminal record, it seemed to him that he had a gift working with computers.
The Commander went to see him in the brig and offered Ziq a choice, spend time in prison or put his knowledge to better use and join Starfleet. Chura considered the offer, he had considered joining Starfleet but had no desire too. However, he knew Starfleet would make sure he got the maximum sentence for his crime.
He finally agreed to join Starfleet and the Commander, Commander Clay, sponsored his application into the Academy. Chura began his journey in Starfleet.
|Starfleet Service History||Ziq graduated in the top 5% of the security/tacical field.
After the double celebration, Chura was assigned to the USS Centaur as a Security/Tactical Officer. The Bolian enjoyed his time in the Centaur but was eager for a new challenge when one came up.
The USS Liberty, was a freshly refit Akira Class, Chura was assigned to the Security team aboard. Two years after joining Liberty he was promoted to Lieutenant JG.
In 2394, he was rotated off the Liberty and transferred to the USS Namur, another refit Akira Class vessel. This time he was given more responsibility and made Assistant Chief of Security after having an excellent work rate during his time aboard the Liberty.
In 2397, Ziq was given the unique opportunity of heading back to Starfleet Academy as a member of the Security Training team.
He found his time at the Academy fulfilling but being stuck in the same place for a long period of time wasn't for him. He longed to be back in space and seeing the galaxy.
He saw that the Nogura was looking for crew during a refit so he put in for a transfer request, which was later accepted.
What he didn't realise was that the Nogura would be docked at Deep Space Five undergoing an extensive refit. He would be in charge of a skeleton security force on board the Nogura while it under went it's refurbishment.
He wasn't overly thrilled by this as he wasn't given the whole picture when he applied for the position. He asked to be reassigned but his request was denied.
He hoped that when a Commanding Officer was assigned his nightmare aboard the Nogura would come to an end with a transfer.
