Ensign Harrison Blackwood

"Each moment free from fear makes a man immortal"

- Alexander the Great

Ensign Harrison Blackwood is a Helm/Com/Ops officer aboard Amity Outpost. The oldest of three brothers, son to a pair of brilliant Starfleet scientists, and a fresh graduate from the academy.


Harrison Blackwood entered the world as the firstborn son to the distinguished Starfleet scientists, Dr. Evelyn and Dr. William Blackwood. His early years were a blend of urban life and the occasional visits to Starfleet research facilities, where his parents were deeply immersed in their ground-breaking work.

In these formative years, Harrison developed a penchant for physical activities that contrasted the scientific pursuits of his parents. He discovered a natural talent for horse riding and archery, competing internationally and becoming a champion in both sports. Much of his later childhood was spent with carers rather than his parents.


As time went on and Harrison grew older, the spark of adventure and personal freedom began to overshadow the structured lifestyle dictated by his parents. Despite his sportsmanship a desire for more began to take hold, longing for independence from his overbearing mother and father he enlisted in Starfleet without their knowledge.

His parents hoped that even in the academy he might turn to their academic interests but Harrison didn't share a love for science - in fact he would resent his brother, Avery, just that little bit for believing he caved in and signed up due to pressure from their parents. Instead Harrison took a career in Command, learning everything there is about flying - any ship, any size. His natural abilities combined with his determination to excel painted the picture of a resourceful and confident cadet.

Starfleet Academy

Echo Squad (SARS Training Squad)

Harrison was invited to join Echo Squad (SARS Training Squad) in his second academic year. A program for cadets who would be specialising in search and rescue piloting operations upon graduation.

  • Records indicate an altercation between him and another Cadet, Lhandon Nilsen, during a training exercise in the Kuiper Belt as part of their "Tactics: Combat, Shuttles and Runabouts" which resulted in a harrowing crash. Nilsen escaped with a broken ankle, but the other pilot was left in intensive care for several months. Shortly after Cadet Nilsen dropped his major in Helm / Navigation.


He graduated in 2400, his first assignment being the recently commissioned and opened Amity Outpost in the Delta Quadrant, an installation belonging to the Federation Diplomatic Corps . Blackwood was unaware that Amity was experiencing a string of missing persons, strange new comers and spatial phenomena's when enroute his transport was caught in a temporal rift that sent him spiralling into a alternate dark reality where thankfully he met the crew of the Independence-B.

The eager young ensign he is, Blackwood was determined to get stuck in and once cleared for duty took a seat at the helm of the Defiant-Class star ship, participating in the Battle of M-Industrix, in 240007, a harrowing battle and rescue which saw all of the crew of Amity Outpost reunited and returned to the Prime Universe.

Amity Outpost

Following graduation Harrison is assigned to a Federation Diplomatic Corps installed in the nebula of the Barossa Sector in the Delta Quadrant. Launched in 2398, Amity Outpost is the next venture into the Delta Quadrant for the Federation. The remote diplomatic posting was not something that immediately pleased him, but he has found out quite soon that not every mission is as simple as taxiing around a couple of diplomats.

Dark Roses (240005-240007): On arrival to Amity Outpost an unusual spatial phenomena forced Harrison's shuttle into an alternate reality where conveniently his now fellow crewmates were investigating a confluence of missing persons. This led to the discovery of a alternate reality Betazed Empire which the crew of the USS Independence-B and the Federation Diplomatic Corps had to overcome to safely return to their own reality.

Family and Relationships

Family Members

Father, Age 53, Human

There isn't a whole lot of information about Harrison's father. At least none he has shared, they have a very strenuous relationship. All he ever says is he was a Starfleet Science Officer, once.

Mother, Age 47, Human

Unlike with his father, Harrison actually has a decent relationship with his mother. Their relationship, once characterized by a lack of emotional intimacy and understanding in his youth was bridged when Harrison left for the academy, and the physical distance allowed for more personal growth. She was a source of encouragement during his training and the two have the makings of a stronger bond.

Brother, Age 22, Human

Despite the challenges posed by their parents' high standards in their youth, both brothers found solace in each other's company, Avery decided to pursue a career as a science officer to echo their father's profession which continues to stir mixed emotions with Harrison. Avery is currently serving as a science officer aboard the USS Santa Maria in the Gamma Quadrant.

Brother, Age 16, Human

Being the youngest of the brothers, both Harrison and James took a more protective stance against their parents when it came to James. Therefore he grew up with a lot more attention from his parents than his older brothers. Despite the age gap, Harrison feels a strong sense of responsibility towards James and has taken on something of a mentoring role for the young cadet currently at Starfleet Academy. He sees in James a reflection of himself.

Name Ship Posting Relationship Status Comments
Wil Ukinix Amity Outpost Commanding Officer His first commander, Harrison thinks he's a bit eccentric, but has the correct ability for the job.
Esma Amity Outpost Colleague/Associate Saved Harrison from certain death for which he's deeply appreciative, his lack of experience with her species leaves their interactions lacking, he's uncertain she considers herself to have friends.
Cassian Iovianus Amity Oupost Superior Officer The first superior officer for Harrison to serve under during active duty and in a live combat situation. He respects the Chief of Security, deeming him a suitable officer to potentially shadow in future.
Kaito Moore Amity Outpost Colleague/Friend They served together for the first time during the conflict with the Betazed Empire and apparently worked quite well in unison, its created an easy transition into the beginning of a work friendship.
Harrison Kiani Amity Outpost Colleague/Friend Perhaps the kindest and most approachable of the 'Ensign Mafia' group he's become involved with. Harrison finds Harrison the most easy going and friendly of the peer group, if a little excitable at times.
Cara Veers Amity Outpost Colleague/Friend Harrison always finds himself a little more attuned to Veer's voice during the group discussions, having developed something of an appreciation for her intelligence and general presence.
Nathan Richards Amity Outpost Superior Officer The pair's first interaction involved Nathan firing at Harrison's shuttle, so immediately a strange one. Harrison gets a competitive vibe from their first interaction, but with a friendly hint to it.

Harrison Blackwood could be described by some as unwavering in his dedication to his career and a deep respect for the chain of command. He exemplifies the ideals of StarFleet through his commitment to personal growth, work ethic and innate passion for exploration and service. This ambition is tempered by a willingness to adopt a sense of camaraderie with his fellow officers, but due to previous experiences this seems to be a continuous quest as he battles a sense of balance between keeping his seclusions and making friends.

Strengths - Harrison is driven and ambitious, possessing an innate drive that fuels his desire for advancement and excellence. He is equipped with a clear determination to improve his skills, knowledge and best each performance after the other to set an example. He will constantly seek out opportunities and challenging tasks to demonstrate his ability to his commanders. One of his other strengths is his respectful adherence to the chain of command, understanding the important of recognizing his superiors to create a more efficient working environment and effective operation. He's since learned to express his thoughts and concerns in a respectful manner within the hierarchy of command, showcasing better communication skills than one might expect from an Ensign.

Weaknesses - Undoubtedly Harrison suffers a relentless pursuit of perfection which leads to overcommitment, which in his desire to excel in all aspects of his work could cause him to burnout in some situations. Like a double-edged sword the Ensign's notable respect for the chain of command presents issues when voicing an opinion at the decision of a superior officer in a mission scenario that might otherwise be to the benefit of the team.
