Captain (SFMC) Wes Greaves is a human male currently serving as the Marine Detachment Commander, Chief Tactical Officer, and Chief of Security aboard the USS Thor.




Appearance

Wes Greaves wears his hair short. Buzzed short. A thin layer of light brown hair usually nigh invisible in direct sunlight. The human man is relatively short compared to most of the species, standing at 5'7", and cut into a lean frame. At first glance it is easy to see he is dedicated to his personal fitness, but he is certainly no heavy lifter. A runner would be a safer assumption. Below thin eyebrows, a pair of dull gray-blue eyes peer out at the world, framed by a lightly wrinkled face whose skin has certainly not been spared from days beneath the sun.


  • Height: 5'7"
  • Weight: 170 lbs
  • Hair: Brown
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Build: Athletic



Background

Childhood

Wes was born on the outskirts of Seattle, Washington in 2366 to Joan Greaves and George Greaves. He spent his childhood enjoying life in the suburbs and making short trips into the Cascade Mountains and trips out to the Puget Sound. Growing up, he fell in love with nature and became an avid hiker, camper, and spent plenty of time sailing during his teen years. As he grew older he turned weekend climbing trips a habit and experienced to some of Earth’s most beautiful mountains. Inspired by the defeat of the Borg in the Alpha Quadrant, he was determined to serve the people of the Federation. With his affinity for the outdoors, he sought out a Marine Corps recruiter’s office at the age of 18.


Enlistment

With his enlistment and basic training complete as a combat engineer, he first served on Mars with the 1st Marine Division. After several years he was assigned to Task Force 51/5, a Starfleet led anti-piracy campaign, where he saw his first combat both in space, and planetside. Following a successful tour, he was assigned to the newly created 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, a Marine command focused on anti-piracy operations. Here he experienced combat once again, but this time as a small unit leader, where he suffered the first combat loss of a Marine under his charge, Private Paul Newson This was a fundamental moment in Wes’s life, and the experience nearly resulted in his retirement from the Corps. Through mentorship with an excellent Marine officer, Major Ron Jordans, Wes recommitted himself to the Marine Corps and future service.

In 2391, after completing Advanced Marine Training, Wes was promoted to Staff Sergeant and assigned to the USS Hood as part of a new Marine Detachment aboard the ship, serving once again under Major Jordans. Assigned to a nine-month crisis response deployment, the ship extended for a total of 16 months on a mission to continue to assist the flood of Romulan refugees after the Hobus Supernova. Initially highly disappointed with a “Navy” ship-based assignment, Wes came to love life aboard the ship working hand in hand with Starfleet's finest. The shoulder to shoulder work, and the continued work with Major Jordans inspired Wes to apply for Starfleet Academy to become a commissioned officer.


Starfleet Academy

Reinvigorated with a dedication to Starfleet, Wes had to choose between staying a Marine or entering the fleet as another Starfleet profession. Ultimately he decided he wanted to give back to the Starfleet Marine Corps and continue to work with junior Marines in much the same way as Major Jordans had worked with him. Despite the decision to stay a Marine, Wes applied for an was accepted into Starfleet Command School where he majored in Helm/Communications. He already knew how to be a Marine, so Wes wanted to learn more about starship life. Such as how the giant testaments to humanity's ingenuity worked, and more importantly to learn other perspectives to command and leadership aside from the Corps' focus on ground combat.

While at the Academy, Wes really broke out of his Marine Corps shell. The exposure to the wider Starfleet gave the man a new perspectives on priorities, problem solving, and relationships. His enlistment taught him to be tough, always ready for a fight, and to maintain a 'never back down' attitude. He found during his first year at the Academy that not only did that attitude not win him any friends, it was largely counter-productive to working relationships amongst the wider Starfleet. Over time his attitude shifted to meet the other cadets somewhere in the middle. He wouldn't forgo his Marine Corps traditions, but maybe he could catch more flies with honey.

By his third year in the academy, Wes had rediscovered sailing as a hobby. Joining a crew from the academy's sailing club, Wes traveled the seas, when coursework allowed, for most of his last two years.


Embassy to Duronis II

As a newly commissioned Second Lieutenant, Wes Greaves entered the fleet again in 2397 assigned to the Federation Embassy of Duronis II where he immediately found himself in the midst of a Romulan plot to capture a great deal of highly dangerous protomatter. After going directly from the check-in shuttle to a rescue mission across the plant of Duronis II, the crew of the Embassy defeated the Romulan scheme only to find that the Federation finally had accepted the Laudean government as members of the Federation.

With the Laudean's offered membership to the Federation, the Embassy of Duronis II's mission came to an end. With a highly successful crew, the core personnel of the Embassy were mostly transferred permanently to the USS Thor and re-tasked for follow on missions.


USS Thor

The maiden voyage of the USS Thor with her new tasking involved responding to the distress call of a colony thought lost 250 years prior. The distress call was located on the other side of the quadrant from where the entire solar system had gone missing. During the mission, Wes was severely injured during a cave in while traversing an underground tunnel system. Fortunately, through the hard work of the crew and the tenacious descendants of the original colonists, the away team was recovered and able to effect a rescue. Not only were 192 surviving colonists rescued, but a previously unknown sentient species named the Azcou were rescued from the planet before it was lost to time again.


Shortly after the completion of the mission, the colonists and the Azcou were transferred to more appropriate conditions and the crew underwent shore leave at Ferenginar. Major Hannibal Parker transferred to the USS Veritas, leaving Wes as the acting Marine Det Commander for the time.


Following the transfer of personnel from Vel Maijan, the crew of the USS Thor enjoyed shore leave on Ferenginar. Doctor Alieth and Chief Engineer Sirok heavily modified one of the ship's racing SAGs and Wes entered into a race on the surface against the two. Due to negotiations for the use of the race track, the event was widely televised across Ferenginar and resulted in heavy damage to both racing bikes. Also during shore leave, Wes, alongside Dar Elandra and Geoffrey Teller was tricked by a Ferengi named Kregg into a pyramid scheme selling guided tours in The Grand Nagus Zek Commemorative Bazaar & Trade Concern. The three were unable to complete their obligated sales requirements and Wes made a deal with Kregg to avoid debt. Kregg directed him to deliver a messsage to Lephi in person on behalf of the Fernginar government. This errand took him to Illara Prime in the Par'tha Expanse where he met Elizabeth Snow and Lephi on the planet. During their meeting the three were attacked and kidnapped for ransom by robed men. Fortunately the three officers managed to escape rather quickly to the USS Atlantis and Wes was able to return home to the Thor having completed his obligation.


Following shore leave, the USS Thor had planned a routine quantum slipstream drive test. Fleet Captain Aron Kells departed the ship to study a nearby Gorgamander pod during the test, leaving the XO, Geoffrey Teller in command. The initial test went smoothly, however immediately upon activating the drive on the return leg the USS Thor impacted a mine and was severely damaged. The mine, an unknown semi-biological mass, embedded itself in the ship and began tunneling toward the QSD. Casualties were upwards of the hundreds and the ship was crippled. Due to interactions with the mine and slipstream space, the Thor was unable to return to normal space without risking the ship being destroyed. Over the course of 12 hours the crew evacuated casualties and worked to detach the mine from the ship. With less than an hour to spare they were successful and were able to safely return to normal space in the Bajor sector.


The damage to the Thor was extensive and required an extended period of repair while docked at Deep Space 9. Most of the crew was temporarily granted quarters and workspace aboard the station. The crew spent well over a month repairing the ship and enjoying shore leave from DS9 and Wes Greaves was formally made the Marine Detachment Commander for the ship. Following the completion of repairs, the Thor was assigned a resupply mission for the colony of New Bajor in the gamma quadrant. All was not as it seemed however and the Thor uncovered corruption of the planet's government which was causing the destruction of the planet's agriculture. Wes Greaves played an important role in helping collect samples of a virus ravaging the planet's crops and eventually he effected the arrest of the planet's governor. With the virus safely erradicated and corruption rooted out of the government of New Bajor, the crew took shore leave on the planet. Wes Greaves was promoted to Marine Captain following the mission.


After enjoying shore leave in the gamma quadrant and on New Bajor, the Thor received an unusual distress signal near an unexplored nebula. The resulting response led the crew to discover the Zet, an advanced civilization lacking warp technology but possessing technology allowed for immortality. The civilization was an extreme representation of capitalism. During diplomatic encounters with the civilization, Wes Greaves served as an away team leader for the first time, and led initial diplomatic meetings with the planet's leaders. The meetings went poorly due to the arrogance of the Zet leadership, and Wes's team was eventually recalled. During follow on negotiations, Wes Greaves found himself the senior officer aboard the Thor, and in another first, he took command of the ship. Negotiations broke down on the surface and the Zet captured one away team and fired upon the Thor with surface missiles armed with Theta radiation. Wes Greaves and the rest of the bridge crew were able to keep the Thor safe and recover the away teams from the surface without injury. Following the mission, the Thor broke contact with the Zet and returned to the Alpha quadrant where they took shore leave on Vulcan.


During shore leave, Wes was appointed the Chief of Security and Chief of Tactical as well as the Marine Detachment Commander. Now leading three departments, Wes became overwhelmed with paddwork as he attempted to immerse himself in learning the new departments he was responsible for. In an attempt to take some time off, he traveled to Earth with Katsim Peri however a shuttle accident resulted in a crash en route where both were gravely injured. The Thor responded to their distress call and rescued the pair in time to treat their injuries. The experience brought the two closer together than ever before.


Wes continues to serve as the Marine Detachment Commander, Chief Tactical Officer, and Chief of Security aboard the USS Thor.

Sirok and Wes attended the Academy together. While they never really met during classes, the two shared a final exam. Graduating together, the two were both assigned to the Embassy to Duronis II, and then to the Thor. Over many missions, the two men became friends sharing a great deal of mutual respect. Wes has vowed to one day break the man's stoicism with his humor.



Academy Classmates:

Alieth
Sirok
Sara Bjørge
Mikeja Lan

Wes briefly interacted with the four of his classmates who he shared his final evaluation with. None of them were well known to him however at the start of the exam. By the time the five of them had graduated, Wes was only slightly more familiar with the group. The newly commissioned Ensigns Sirok and Alieth were assigned to Duronis II along with him, and the three of them became much more familiar with each other on the freighter ride to the Embassy.




Mementos


Over the years, Wes has collected various knick knacks and other items that hold sentimental value.
