|Ulrich Bechir was born on Bolarius IX in 2354 to loving parents and artistic parents.His mother Ta’la was a painter and his father, Pov, a well known stage actor. While Bechir’s older brother Posla was following in his parent’s footsteps. Bechir was the only one of his family who did not share the strong artistic desires and talents of his family, only having a minor ability in music. Upon testing it was realized that Bechir was a left brain dominant Bolian and therefore more suited to service based pursuits that are analytical and methodical. As time went on, while Bechir showed creativity in more analytical pursuits, these aptitudes only heightened. Bechir does, however, still enjoy playing the piano regularly and often does so when feeling especially stressed or concerned.
Bechir entered Starfleet as a Cadet in 2372, eventually entering the Operations Division in Communication and studying under great instructors such as Zed Drebin, Kinney Randt, Kermie Mistwallow, and Jadia Triellis. Upon exit he joined Communications and worked as a reporter for a short period of time with the United Federation Starfleet News Network. During this time he also took Operations and Communications shifts on Tranquility station regularly while working simulator training in the Academy where he was quickly named Vice Dean of Command and Operations. Bechir was named Vice Chief of Operations at Tranquility Station until he was given command of the newly minted USS Shogun only a few months later. The ship was designed for and tasked with exploring deep space around Pinastri, to boldly go where no Starfleet vessel had gone before.
Bechir officially commanded USS Shogun from December 20, 2383 until June 30, 2388 and recorded twenty-four first contact missions. On June 30, 2388 the Hirogen attacked Pinastri at roughly the same time a spacial phenomena was forming. The repeated use of quantum torpedo technology in space heightened the affected of the localized anomaly and flung Shogun, two other ships, and a station far away from Pinastri. Calculations set the time of return at almost a hundred years at warp eight. The remnants of UFS began to set up an outpost in their area while exploration was carried out. Bechir and his crew set about returning to Pinastri, dropping communications buoys along the way, knowing that it would be unlikely they would return in most of their lifetimes. Ways to shorten the journey were looked for, but Shogun was harassed along the way by several aggressive species, including the Borg and the Kradin. It was during this time that the sect of the Kradin essentially wiped out the Vori and attacked Shogun, killing several crew members and taking their corpses as nesting places for Kradin hatchlings.
On February 24, 2389 Bechir was snatched by the Borg and they attempted assimilation. It was only through the efforts of SVAndrei Baxton and Fargus Skytower that Bechir remained cut off from the Collective and only partially assimilated. A few months later, upon investigating a planet littered with Borg corpses that the biological components seemed to have melted while the electronic exploded, Bechir contracted a virus that would be dangerous to his crew. Doctor Skytower and Chief Engineer Baxton were both stymied as to a way to cure the affliction, and Baxton and Bechir agreed that the only way to ensure the safety of the crew was for Bechir to leave Shogun. Skytower protested vociferously but in the end Bechir left the crew on his captain’s yacht with the crew wishing him well and hoping they could pick him up in the near future.
Soon after he left Shogun, Bechir noticed the rapid advancement of his illness and set about reprogramming his transporter system. With the aid of his Borg implants, he was able to construct a matrix that would isolate and remove both the virus from his system and his Borg implants, returning him, more or less, to purely Bolian. At the time he believed that the entire process would only take a “a few weeks” and then he could signal and rejoin his crew. Bechir placed an Emergency Command Hologram with the task of piloting the ship, keeping it safe, and finding a faster route back to Pinastri and then placed himself in the Transporter Buffer. Instead of taking only “a few weeks or months” the process took just over seven years with Bechir exiting stasis on stardate 220118. From that point, Bechir worked to find his way back to Federation space, encountering the USS Veracruz on Stardate 220525.
After being brought aboard USS Veracruz, Bechir was discovered to be clean of Borg technology and the killer virus. At this point Bechir discovered that Shogun and its crew had never been found. Using his analytical and methodical nature, Bechir updated his Starfleet Academy courses and took the position of Intelligence Officer onboard USS Veracruz where he hopes to protect its current crew from the same dangers that befell USS Shogun, while searching for his missing friends from USS Shogun.
From the USS Veracruz, Bechir transferred to USS Atlas shortly after the ship’s commission in 220924, working with Captain Drewski Northman. There he worked as the ship’s main Intelligence Officer. This work was intensified when he was made the Branch Commander of Starfleet Intelligence in 221011. Bechir worked to create a guide outlining the job of an Intelligence Officer in UFS, as well as a comprehensive report on the main Kazon tribes. While researching this Bechir learned the main dialect of the Kazon language. In 221201 it was announced that a new USS Shogun was being built as a Gagarin Class ship and that Bechir, newly promoted to Captain, would be responsible for a ship of that name once again.
Set to launch in 230205, the new USS Shogun will patrol close to Pinastri for three months to ensure Bechir is ready, once again, to take up command.
