Background


Taggart has dreamed of being a Starfleet Marine since the age of five. His bedroom being plastered with posters his father had somehow managed to score for him from the local enlistment office, models of ships that had housed famous Marines, and a couple of replicated regimental flags. He even collected an entire set of bubblegum cards that between them showcased the insignia of every single Marine regiment and squadron in Starfleet as well as having his uncles dress uniform rank insignia. Being the eldest - and only male - of his siblings, he was named Simeon in the tradition of his family. Taggart looks up to his Uncle as a hero-figure, as his death was in the line of his duty as a Starfleet officer and simply doing his job. In part this has formed the younger Taggart's desire to "make a difference". Medals and accolades don't interest him, and promotion only mildly. He wants to be a good Marine and keep people safe.

The morning after his nineteenth birthday, Private Taggart was found asleep in one of the many fountains on the promenade. He was wearing a pair of cargo shorts underneath a bright pink tutu, and a dark green t-shirt with the sleeves roughly cut off that bore the insignia of the 292nd Marine Infantry on the left breast. He was wearing a tiara that was bent out of shape, pink fishnet gloves and a bright pink sash floated nearby that said “Birthday Princess”, whilst a huge pin badge proclaiming “19 Today!” was hung around his neck on a cord as a make-do medallion. His face had been plastered with rouge, lipstick and eye makeup whilst Taggart’s left arm bore the red and sore looking inking of a pretty fresh tattoo of his regiments crest, above a simple inscribing of “Recon”.

Private Taggart was part of the Marine insertion that took control of the Orion pirate ship Skullmasher, later being promoted to Corporal by Major Tatash and transferred into Alpha Company.

Two of Taggart's closed friends, Privates Selkirk and Lockwood were murdered by the Orion Syndicate whilst being held prisoner in the mines of Dominicus VI.He was later promoted to Sergeant as the senior squad leader of his platoon by Marine Captain Victoria MacMahon upon her taking command of Alpha Company.

In late-2397 and early-2398 Taggart undertook a training course that included standard Starfleet Security and Diplomatic modules with the intention of helping to form a proposed Diplomatic Protection Squad within the 292nd Marines. Having completed the course Taggart was promoted to the fleet rank of Ensign instead of the Marines 2nd Lieutenant equivalent and reassigned to the Starfleet Diplomatic Corps aboard the station as a dedicated SDC Security Officer.
