Personal History Keir Roharren was born on November 9th in London, England. Born into a life of luxury, even for those on Earth, Keir shuffled between the families many luxurious properties. Hi family owned a private technologies development firm, which frequently was used to explore more fringe technological ideas that Starfleet didn’t want to waste too many resources on. This meant Keir was frequently on the move, bouncing between whatever world the next contract his Dad was on.
At the age of 7, Keir was brought along for one of his father’s deals to one of the outer worlds of the Federation. The world was chosen due to its low population, but high quantity of construction materials. This trip was meant to introduce Keir to a love of business. Instead, it planted a seed that would ultimately set his destiny to the stars.
While wandering around the newly constructed Starbase in Earth orbit, Keir happened across a packed room listening to a brief speech from a very elderly retired Starfleet officer. The man was the venerated Admiral. The two never spoke, never made eye contact, or anything of the sort. Keir simply stood at the back of the room and listened to the man’s speech. What he heard was something vastly different from the world of deals and leverage and manipulation that surrounded his father. It was a world built on honor, loyalty, cooperation, and optimism. It was the goal of Starfleet, spoken by the man who had forged its mission nearly a century ago. The speech would shape the rest of Keir’s life.
He came back from that trip with a deep interest in space exploration and Starfleet, and his father came back with a strong urge to bend his son to his will. From that point on, the relationship between the two was on very rocky terrain.
While his Father put on the air of a helpful member of the galactic community, he had secretly established an illegal arms deal with numerous unsavory groups including Orion Pirates. This deal had proven to be one of his most lucrative yet.
As Keir grew older, he was forced by his father to become part of the family business. Rather than protesting outright against an increasingly overbearing father, Keir decided to play along con, playing the earnest loyal son. For 3 years, he served as a loyal lieutenant and subordinate of his father, the whole time collecting evidence of his father’s dealings. On the eve of his 18th birthday, Keir finally sprung the trap. He waited until his father went away for a business deal, and then contacted Starfleet Intelligence and turned over everything. His father was caught and arrested mid deal, and his detailed notes brought down many of his father’s contacts with him. His father was convicted and sent to a Penal Colony and Keir went almost immediately to Starfleet Acadamy. His relationship with his mother was shattered,
Keir attended the Acadamy, where he rocketed through his courses. His focus was on tactical and command training, becoming a very adept Tactical Officer.
Out of the academy he aboard the USS Newton for almost 2 years as Junior Tactical Officer. He experienced some of the most advanced technologies Starfleet was rolling out at the time. However, the Newton kept getting pulled away from exploration responsibilities. Keir desperately wanted to fast track to the centre seat, which sparked his renewed desire to pursue a command position. Keir got to put his command experience to the test. Ambushed by a very well-armed portion of the Orion Syndicate, the Newton was nearly crippled. With the CO unconscious, the XO dead, and the bridge cut off from the rest of the ship, Keir took charge. Hiding the ship within the radiation rich rings of the system’s gas giant, he used a series of decoy buoys to distract the Orions long enough to repair the warp drive.
Keir left the Newton to return to the Acadamy for advanced command courses. He completed his command training courses and was assigned to the USS Korolev, where he served as Chief Tactical Officer and Second Officer. The ship was mostly assigned to regional patrols along the Romulan border, where Chris's paranoia toward Romulans didn't improve much. It was from this vessel that Chris was recruited for a deep cover infiltration mission behind Romulan lines. When Chris was recovered and brought back to Federation space, he no longer held his deep seated issues with Romulans. Though he mistrusted their government, he had learned to appreciate some of the differences in their culture.
Upon his return, he refocused his desires from the edge of the sword to the brain child. He moved from Tactical to Strategy. He was then assigned his first Starbase rotation. During his tour of duty, he proved himself on countless occasions, increasing his tendency toward diplomacy over violence, though only a fool would test his willingness to fight when necessary. The same political instincts that made him a good tactician had also formed the backbone of a unique preventative strategy. Keir Roharren was as worthy a combat strategist as he was a leader.
After helping to mediate a territorial dispute that threatened to erupt into a sector wide war, Chris was promoted to Lt. He served aboard the station for a few more months getting some of the strategic and command experience he so desperately wanted.
