Lieutenant Ren Kannu

In 2385, Bajor finally gained entry into the Federation. The majority of the Bajoran Militia was transferred over to Starfleet, this included Ren Kannu. His job didn't change but his uniform did. He wasn't happy about transferring over to Starfleet and tried to remain in the Militia, but his attempts fell on deaf ears. In 2387, Starfleet had a reshuffle of its personnel deployments in the Bajor system and Ren was reassigned to the Starship Jericho. Again, he tried to fight as he didn't want to leave his home. He almost resigned his commission if it wasn't for his mother who convinced him to join the Jericho and see the Galaxy. After Jericho returned home from the Protouniverse, she was decommissioned. Ren was reassigned to the USS Hawaii as Chief Helmsman.

History

Ren Kannu was born in 2362 on the remote farming world of Gault to Ren Fuliar and Gemma Ren.

Fuliar met Gemma soon after his arrival on Gault, some six years earlier. Fuliar had managed to escape the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor. He killed the wealthy Cardassian family he was a slave for and used their wealth to bribe a Lurian freighter Captain to smuggle him off the planet and out of the system.

Due to the status of the Cardassian family, he knew he was a wanted man, so he headed to the remote and quiet farming world of Gault.

After a few months, he met Gemma, a Human girl who had just moved to the colony with her family from Earth. They soon set up their own farm together.

Fuliar told Gemma of his past and what had happened and agreed not to export their goods, instead trading them on Gault for what they needed, due to Fuliar’s fear of being found. Several years later they married. Once Fuliar felt safe enough, he agreed to have a child. Gemma fell pregnant and several months later gave birth to a bouncing baby boy, Kannu.

They lived happily on Gault until news came of the Cardassians’ Occupation over the Bajorans had come to an end and Starfleet was moving into the Bajoran System to help with the rebuilding effort. Fuliar was desperate to return home and raise their son in Hedrikspool Province, where he had grown up. Gemma agreed and they booked a transport back to Bajor.

Unfortunately, during the voyage back to Bajor, a power conduit within the Ren family quarters blew, leaving Fuliar dead. Thankfully, Gemma and Kannu were on the flight deck when the incident happened.

The explosion was put down to an unfortunate accident but Gemma knew her husband had been murdered.

Gemma was determined to fulfill Fuliar’s wishes and raised their 7 year old son in his home Province.

As the years passed Kannu grew into a fine young man. When he turned 18 he joined the Bajoran Militia as a pilot. He enjoyed transporting people from one place to another. Every day was different.
