- 234012.27 Born in New Cardiff, Cymric district,
- 235901.03 Entered compulsory military service with the
Galatian Defense Forces.
- 236002.01 Selected for advanced combat training as
part of the elite Special Services Division. Public records indicate qualifications in Sub orbital Freefall/ Low Opening insertion techniques, demolitions, advanced unarmed and improvised weopon combat arts, and Expert qualification in ballistic, phased energy, fusion pulse and edged weopons. Remaining SSD training remains classified, however Starfleet personnel familiar with Llewelyn’s service during the Cardassian War indicate possible psychological operations training up to and including possible involvement with the GDF’s Project Stargate. Unconfirmed reports indicate the focus of this group is non-linear imaging of potential targets independent of locality and spacetime; sometimes referred to as “remote viewing”. Llewelyn’s alleged potential involvement in this group should not be viewed as evidence of any natural psychic abilities, as studies have shown that virtually all humanoids, if instructed in the rigorous protocols utilized, can achieve at least some success utilizing the techniques. If in fact he was an active member of Project Stargate, however, it can be presumed that he has an above average ability in the areas of mental discipline and information discrimination.
- 236201.15 Llewelyn deploys for the first of his 3
combat tours. As the Cardassian/ Federation war dragged on, fewer and fewer major battles were being fought as both sides concentrated on consolidating their major territories. Both sides instead concentrated on contesting systems caught between the two. This change in emphasis resulted in a prolonged “low intensity” conflict using guerrilla tactics and special warfare units vying for control of the border worlds. Llewelyn is wounded twice and promoted to the rank of platoon sergeant.

Morgana continues to serve in Starfleet Reserves but has taken on a teaching job as well. It was Llewelyn’s intention to never again wear a Starfleet or any other uniform. That all changed following a mysterious visit in early 2385 after which he sadly, but resolutely bade goodbye to his family yet again, and returned to Starfleet Academy for a mandatory refresher course required for reinstatement to Starfleet.
::Bio of LLewelyn:: Born on Galatia Prime, formerly a member world of the independent Outer Rim Confederacy. Originally the ORC consisted of the worlds containing the cultures of the Celtic diaspora, which left Earth 200 years earlier to preserve their cultural heritage apart from the homogeonized environs of the Federation,( Some of the earlier settlers colonized the now federation controlled colony of Caldos 4), the Naussicans, the Benzites, the Bynar, the Krytal, ancient offshoots of the Cardassian race, differentiated by the greenish tint of their skin and culturally by their proclivity for long hair amongst the male of the species, the Bajiri, ancient offshoots of the Bajoran people, virtually identical to modern Bajorans except for the not often seen mid brow ridges that are present in all Bajiri, and the Na'al, who virtually keep to themselves, and are never seen in public without head to toe swathed in loose fitting robes and veils.
Being raised in the Cymric sector, called by the English tongue "welsh", though never to the face of a Cymro if the person knew better, Llewelyn was brought up in the Celtic Christian faith, though his ardor for it has laxed at times. Like all people raised on Galatia, he speaks the languages of every Celtic region, Cymraeg, Cornish, Manx, Galizian, Scots, Gaelic, and Breton. Virtually everyone on the planet also speaks a local dialect known as Keltich, which is a conglameration of all of the above, and is the official language used by the Galatian Defense Forces. The English language is not welcomed on the Celtic homeworld, and tolerated only by those peoples of Celtic descent that journey there to study their heritage. Llewelyn had decent marks in school, and played Rugby in the 7 nations series, being capped 5 times before his service during the Cardassian Federation war. Because the ORC existed in close proximity to the Federation colonies and engaged in much cultural and economic exchange with them, and concerns over Imperialistic Cardassian influence so close to their borders, the ORC entered into an alliance with the Federation to liberate the colonies. This mutual cooperation continued to the close of the Cardassian War.
Llewelyn enlisted in the Galatian Defense Forces, by law, on his 18th birthday and underwent cross training with the Klingon Defense Forces. The Klingons and the Galatians had skirmished many times, to no clear victory on either side. One side effect, however, grew out of the experience. The Klingons respected the Bardic Warrior Culture of the Celts and their passion for recounting the heroic deeds of their ancestors.(Llewelyn's own brother Taliesan is a Bard of the 1st order, having completed 20 years memorizing the Mabinogian, and 3 years of cultural apprenticeship under the tutelege of a professional Master Bard) This mutual respect of cultures led to personnel exchanges over the years for the best of the Galatian military. Llewelyn was amongst a handful of exchange personnel that so distinguished himself in combat that he was offered the privelege of undergoing the Klingon Rite of Ascendancy. Upon completing the ceremony by the grasping of a Klingon d'ktagh, blade first, he recieved a Klingon name and nominal rank of Warrior.
Llewelyn is currently 45 standard Federation years old, stands 6' 1/2" high, and weighs 100 kilos. His head is clean shaven, however he sports a reddish blonde goatee. His eyes are green. For those fortunate, or unfortunate enough, to see him in a semi disrobed state they will observe a Klingon Imperial triad and his Klingon name tatooed on his right bicep, a Celtic knotwork lion on his left bicep, and an ornate Celtic Cross tatooed across the whole of his back.
In keeping with established Cultural expression doctrine, Llewelyn wears the distinctive Celtic choker, a torc, consisting of 1/2 cm of braided gold 18cm long terminating in two golden 1cm orbs with a 2cm space in between. On formal occasions he has also been known to wear a Romanized Celtic sash made of nine yards of Galatian wool plaid gathered at his left shoulder, with a large knotwork fastener.
Training and Experience
Llewelyn has a previous combat experience as a member of the Outer Rim Confederacy joint contingent allied with Starfleet ground forces in the Cardassian War. The ORC was an independant entity sharing the space adjacent to the cardassian Union and the former federation colonies. They were strong supporters of the Maquis movement, disgusted with the Federation's abandonment of worlds that their people had fought so hard to free during the conflict. In protest of this blatant disregard for the Confederacy's disproportionate number of soldiers who gave their lives in defense of the colonies, the ORC suspended diplomatic ties with the Federation from the time that the Cardassian Federation treaty.
This isolationist stance towards the UFOP lasted until the commencement of the Dominion War, where mutual defense concerns overshadowed old grievances. It was during the cessation of hostilities leading up to the UFP/ Cardassian Treaty that Llewelyn elected to take part in a program which allowed Cardassian War Veterans from non Federation worlds the opportunity to apply to Starfleet Academy. Llewelyn earned his commission as an Ensign and then went on to earn a PhD. in Comparitive Psychology from the Academy's prestigious Graduate Studies program. Following an internship at Starfleet Medical, he was licensed to act as Ships Counselor.
Llewelyn's first spacebourne deployment was to the USS ARIZONA, which opened up the opportunity for his family, a wife and 2 sons, to join him on assignment. His wife, also a Starfleet officer, was appointed to serve as the head of the family support program on board the Arizona. Morgana Llewelyn, Lt., was raised on Caldos 4 and is a second cousin to Beverly Howard, later Beverly Crusher. With the breakdown of diplomatic ties with the ORC, Llewelyn elected to stay in Starfleet because of his wife and children's status as Federation citizens.
Following the destruction of the Arizona, Llewelyn was temporarilly assigned to the USS Indria where he received a catastrophic injury. He spent a full year in medical recovery and relocated to Caldos 4 with his family. At the commencement of the Dominion War he petitioned for and was granted leave to rejoin the Galatian Defense Force, where he served honorably, though not without injury or turmoil. The destruction of Caldos 4 colony, where his wife, still serving as a Starfleet Reserve officer of the rank of Lt. Commander, and his 2 sons were living, caused him much anguish.
To his relief, his family survived and his wife assumed an active duty role in the reconstruction efforts at the colony. Toward the end of the Dominion War, Llewelyn, now a Lt. Cmdr in an HCO capacity, formerly retired from Starfleet when ordered by the GDF to administer an orbital station known as the Rhondda Orbital Platform, orbiting the predominately Celtic "homeworld" of Galatia Prime. The destruction of Caldos 4 colony weighed heavily on Morgana Llewelyn, and her husband's long absences exacerbated a growing rift between the two. They were legally separated when catastrophe struck and the ROP was overrun by renegade Jem H'dar and their privateer allies in the Morago (see star trek: a final unity). This instability, so close to the Galatian homeworld, long the moral and political center of the ORC, created a rift within the Confederacy long after the invaders were repelled.
Galatia Prime and several of its sister worlds eventually seceded from the Confederacy and petitioned for membership within the Federation for protection. Several ORC worlds elected to maintain their independance, most notably, the Naussicans. With the ROP's re designation as Starbase 619, Llewelyn found himself out of a job. For a timeLlewelyn sought work in various endeavors within the Merchant Marines, but his life seemed more and more fruitless. Determining to put his life back in order, Llewelyn returned to Caldos 4, working in the relief effort and sought treatment for post traumatic stress, depression and disillusionment.
Morgana Llewelyn, having dealt with her own bouts of depression and PTSD, now came to the support of her estranged husband. Slowly, and not without fits and starts, the two gradually became closer and ultimately reconciled. The rebirth of their marriage culminated in the birth of a third son to the couple. Together they became prominent people within the community. In addition to her Starfleet duties, Morgana found time to pursue her love of teaching. Llewelyn served in various administrative capacities and civic offices and their family thrived. In early 2385 he received a mysterious visit, the details of which, if ever acknowledged at all by the Federation, would be above top secret classified. It was therefore a shock to all, including his family, when he announced that he'd decided to rejoin Starfleet.
Privately, he made his wife aware that while he could not disclose his real mission, he stressed that he was being recruited to a special project at the behest of the President of the Federation. He stressed the need for secrecy within his assignment, and asked that she trust that he would not have accepted the assignment had it not been for the gravest of reasons. He also stressed that she was to never, under any circumstances, disclose the circumstances surrounding his decision to come out of retirement, especially to members of Starfleet. Failure to follow this principle, he told her, would place his life in grave danger, and end her career if it were ever traced back to her. Two weeks later, he bade his family goodbye, and caught a transport to Sector 001, and Starfleet Academy.
