V’Len Kel was created on stardate 239410.26 when a transporter mishap at an aging Starfleet station resulted in the merging of Vazlo Kel a joined Trill and Lenshran Thule an Andorian.
Immediately after his creation V’Len Kel met James Conner, a human cadet in his cadre. Jim and Kel became close friends and Kel rescued Jim on several away missions.
V’Len Kel was allowed to maintain his existence, even after a possible solution was found, after appealing to the Starfleet Judge Advocate. After winning his appeal from Starfleet, Kel has maintained close contact with the family of Vazlo Kel, particularly Rosro Nirs, who also aspires to join Starfleet. Lenshran’s parents have also stayed in touch, while Lenshran’s brother, Kos, has been openly hostile to the interloper who has taken over his brother’s life.
After completing his final training simulation under Major Wes Greaves of the USS Thor, the Marjor request Kel be posted to the Thor for its mission to the Delta Quadrant. During exploration of the "Starship Graveyard" near Amity sation, Kel was able to establish contact with a cosmozoan entity using the Thor's holodeck interface. The entity briefly swallowed the the USS Thor but regurgitated it later in the hopes of gaining freedom from the cage is was locked in. The entity was freed and headed for parts unknown.
While on shore leave at Deep Space 9, V'Len was promoted to Lieutenant JG on stardate 239902.09. He was also made acting Chief Medical Officer of the USS Thor.
On stardate 239902.18 the USS Thor arrived at Okaea to check on the Federation outpost located on the ocean world. The Thor was attacked and subsequently downed by a pirate vessel. V'Len survived the attack and remained on board the Thor in order to aid survivors. While working with limited resources, V'Len developed a method to use Okaea's ocean water to treat patients. V'Len objected to Major Greaves decision to further engage the pirate vessel though the effort was ultimately successful. The timely arrival of the USS Oumuamua allowed rescue of the crippled Thor, but a new problem presented itself. Thor's commanding officer Aron Kells had been abducted by the pirates and was now on a cruiser belonging to the United Dominion of Planets. A team led by Major Greaves was dispatched to the UDP cruiser. While attempting to rescue the commodore, V'Len was injured while aiding an UDP crewman and required replacement of his heart with a cardiac inducer.
While on shore leaving following the return from Okaea, V'Len struggled to overcome depression and anxiety associated with his new cardiac inducer. Fortunately the former medical staff of the Thor rallied around him and he slowly got back to normal. V'Len's hopes of putting the disagreement between he and Greaves behind them was shattered with the arrival of Ress Reiji, an Andorian advocate investigating the downing of the USS Thor. The man seemed intent on embarrassing Greaves and V'Len was used as his instrument to do so. V'Len was able to help someone, namely his good friend Ulasso who seemed to have picked up a straggler on Okaea. The medical team discovered an anemone living in the saurian's nasal cavity. The team was able to remove the unusual creature who seemed to exude psychogenic compounds which had been causing Ulasso to experience hallucinations.
The USS Thor crew were finally transferred to the USS Oumuamua and departed for the gamma quadrant with V'Len now Chief Medical Officer. Things seemed to have gone back to normal until, 3 months into the voyage, Greaves summoned Kel to his office with an unusual offer. Greaves asked V'Len to act as XO while Commodore V'Airu was attending a diplomatic conference. While acting as XO, V'Len made first contact with the Esse, a plant species who had journeyed for thousands of years to find a new home world. V'Len briefly commanded the bridge, leading to the discovery of a second ship attached to the Esse vessel. This vessel belonged to the Suclese who had been stealing sap from the hibernating Esse in order to stave off a degenerative disease their species had acquired. With the Esse safely to their new home world, and Toz and Katsim working on a cure for the Suclese, V'Len was relieved to return to his sickbay.
The shore leave following the contact with the Esse found Kel, Salo, Greave and Kessler captured in the ships holodeck by the EMH. While the EMH captured and tortured Kessler; Kel, Salo and Greaves had to follow a series of clues to locate and rescue Kessler. The EMH used a mobile emitter to escape the holodeck. Also during shore leave, Ulasso, Greaves, Katsim and Rox (one of the nursing staff) visited a waystation in the Gamma Quadrant. There the group was reunited with Nelv, one of the pirates who had recently downed the USS Thor. Nelv injured Ulasso and squared off against Greaves in the Tsunkatse arena. While Greaves and Ulasso returned mostly undamaged, Ulasso left the Oumuamau to return to Sauria to convalesce and to deal with family issues.
