Backstory (Timeline)

  • 234104.22 - 235812.01:
    • Born to Human father and Malkusian mother on Malkus IX. Both parents were pioneer hydroponics farmers in the newly formed Lysander Hydroponics Institute of Malkus IX. Although the family was incredibly wealthy by Leyron standards, Malcolm was still raised in the traditional Leyron manner, living with his parents until his teenage years and then being housed in government dorms for young men. There, he was rigorously trained in subjects such as literature, the environment, science, math, and athletics. The teens spend all their summers living in small groups in hand-made shelters, usually deep in the wilderness. The population of Malkus IX is generally considered sparse for a warp-developed planet, so much of the land is wilderness.
    • As a teen he spent much of his time reading, playing sports, and working with the land. Although most found him rough on the exterior, those that spent the minimal energy to know him saw his outgoing, playful side. He is slow to judge and tended to be the student who scored well on tests, lead his team in all outdoor contests, and was liked by most.
  • 235901.01 - 236406.30:
    • At the completion of his studies, he left Malkus to seek more adventure in StarFleet. He found his way to the Academy easily, through sneaking aboard a freighter bound for Earth. Two friends, Lucio and Moth, accompanied him. All three enrolled in the Academy and quickly moved near the top of their class. Known for their friendly ways and intelligent conversation, the trio were often seen seated in the Academy Form debating topics such as the Federation's loss of power, or the introduction of the newest warship. Malcolm met Nell, at the Academy, and the two were wed seven months later. Nell quickly became one of Malcolm's posse and all four were soon seen together almost non-stop.
    • The group was soon torn apart, however, as Moth and Lucio were caught cheating on a final exam. Both were expelled from the Academy, and boarded a transport back to Malkus. Moth was killed, and Lucio seriously injured when their transport was attacked by a Cardassian warship. Malcolm was devastated, and took a semester leave of absence from the Academy to return to Malkus, leaving Nell behind on Earth to continue her studies. Malcolm spent the time on Malkus living in a hand-made shelter, in deep forest. Using his skills learned in his teen years, he survived two months without outside intervention. He returned for the spring semester, to find that Nell was pregnant. Their son Othello was born on stardate 8402.13. Malcolm graduated 10th in a class of 372 the next year.
  • 236407.01 - 237609.15:
    • Malcolm's first posting was aboard the USS Bellepheron as a helm officer and was promoted over a period of nine years to finally take the first officer position. He transferred off the ship to the USS Berlin just a month before the Bellerophon was destroyed, with all hands lost, in the battle of Wolf 359. Malcolm took the first officer position aboard the Berlin and finally took command of the ship just a year later when the ship's captain retired.
    • Malcolm led the Berlin into a number of successful battle against the Dominion, and was finally transferred to StarBase 118 to undergo a rigorous sixth month command training program. The newly instated command training placed him in the top tier of captains in StarFleet. Soon after completing the training, he was named acting commander of the station.
  • 237609.16 – 237802.15:
    • After the Alpha-Base 45 incident, Malcolm took leave from his position as Commanding Officer of StarBase 118 Operations and accompanied his son Othello to StarBase 12, where his mother took custody. Malcolm returned to StarBase 118 and remained on the base until December 20th, upon hearing word that his niece's husband, Priam Capulet, had died. He returned to Malkus IX to attend the funeral, and soon after decided to begin the traditional Leyron Zo-yei (a withdraw from society with the purpose of spiritual cleansing).
  • 237802.16 - 239006.29:
    • After finishing the Zo-yei, Lysander returned to Starfleet and was assigned to Starfleet Academy as an instructor in various subjects, including Battle Tactics, Administration, and Navigation.
  • 239006.30 - 2392:
    • Lysander requested, and was granted, consideration for a command position. He was assigned to the USS Triumphant, engaging in Trinity Sector patrol and defense.
    • In July of 2392, the Triumphant was recalled to Earth's McKinley station for the installation of Slipstream Drive – the first short-range tactical vessel to receive the refit – general maintenance and interior refurbishment, with Lysander assigned to oversee process.


  • Leyron:
    • The Leyron are humanoids native to Malkus IX and are relatively new to the warp-capable community.
    • They are remarkably human in appearance, but longer-lived than even Vulcans.
    • Of note to anthropologists is that one of their major subcultures developed a written language significantly before spoken or sign languages.
    • The Leyron people are deeply rooted to the land, and their children are taught survival skills from an early age. It is often noted by anthropologists that there exists quite a duality in the Leyron society. With their civilization being one first seen that created a written language before a spoken language, literature, poetry, and other written arts are highly valued in Leyron society. (The population of Leyron is surprisingly small for a developed world. As well, there is only one unified government, making it easy to generalize about the society as a whole.) However, the Leyron people are also incredibly talented in the agricultural field, and children are taught from a very young age about the value of the land.
