Battle Of Camis IV
After his graduation from the Marine Command School, Alexander was assigned to the Force Recon detachment. He was given the command of a small Force Recon unit codename Alpha Two. The assignment the team was given, to support a Federation outpost in the Camis sector on the planet of Camis IV. Starfleet Intelligence reported that their was a small skirmish and raids on the outpost. Alexander and his team were to assess the situation and report to Alpha One. Upon arrival Alexander and his team found most of the outpost destroyed. He and the team defended the occupants of the outpost with what weapons they had available and what they could find. It came to the point where, he and the team fought to a hillside on the outskirts of the outpost, only to be attacked by Nausicaan raiders. His team falling in the battle, Alexander had only one option left to hold back the opposing forces. He called in an air strike on his own position, the distress call Broken Arrow. After the battle, Alexander was found and taken to recover at Starfleet Medical on Earth due to his wounds. During his recovery the medical staff discovered the symptoms of Post traumatic stress disorder. He spent almost a month with doctors talking about the engagement, he was then decorated by the Commandant of the Marines for bravery and promoted to the rank of First Lieutenant. Alexander was given survivors leave before being assigned to the Ronin. Later his symptoms escalated to the night sweats and dreams of the battle. He overcame the problem and felt that he could take command of a team again. This came to be when he commanded a team to rescue the away team while assigned to the Aurora under the command of Captain Della Vetri. Alexander piloted the small re-entry craft Borealis. With the success of that mission, Alexander felt his confidence come back and he knew that he was back on track again. He later transferred to the Embassy on Durnonis II, and became a Tactical/Security Officer on the USS Thunder, under the command of Fleet Captain Toni Turner. During a mission he was transferred to the USS Mercury along with Commander Miles Unum. Under strange events Commander Unum was called away from the Mercury and Commander Aron Kells was given command.
Alexander found his penchant for strategic planning that proved valuable during the Borg incursion aboard Mercury. Upon the completion of the incursion, Commander Aron Kells promoted Alexander to the rank of Lt. Commander then appointed him to Chief Operations Officer. Stardate 238905.27. Upon the return from a mission to save the life of Eyas Wulfantine's mother. Alexander returned to the Mercury to receive orders of transfer to Starbase 118 to the posting of First Officer to Captain Kalianna Nicholotti. Unknown to him what had brought on this transfer and change in duty posting, Alexander reported on Stardate 239004.04.
Just after his promotion and career change. Marine Captain Askade Meghan D'ciq introduced him to Lt. Jade Shryker, the security officer on the USS Drake. They met via a holodeck date while the Mercury crew was on shore leave. After that first meeting they had dated and fell in love with each other, with Alexander asking her to marry him. Jade transferred to the Mercury not soon after the proposal. Alexander married Jade on Stardate 238908.08. Two months after they were married, Jade told Alexander that she is pregnant with their first child. The next day Alexander was captured and held prisoner in a Klingon concentration camp. During the escape from the planet Vador III, Alexander was wounded in the lower leg. It is not known what the damage is at this point it has to be determined by the Mercury CMO Lt. Commander Velana. After some time in the Sickbay aboard the Mercury, Chief Medical Officer Velana informed Alexander that the damage to his leg can not be repaired his left leg had to be removed.Upon arriving at Starbase 118, he and Jade transported to the medical facility on the Starbase for him to have surgery and a replacement limb. During the shoreleave on Starbase 118, Alexander was awarded three ribbons. Doctor Johanna MacLaren used advanced biotechnology to grow a limb from the DNA of Alexander.
