Commander Greg Alein

History

Born in 2344 in County Kerry, Ireland to Halden Eriksson and Wendy Alein, Greg was the oldest of what would be four children. From the start, the Eriksson household had secrets, ones that Greg’s mother attempted to keep secret from the outside world. Wendy a gifted Doctor and Star Fleet Officer had made a name for herself as a raising Officer within the Federation. While Halden Eriksson, an Engineer by trade, had been unable to join the Federation due to a failed Psychological evaluation. Jealous of his wife’s success, Halden had turned to the drink early on in their relationship.

As Wendy’s career took off, Halden’s slow slipped further and further out of reach; eventually, the family depended on him to care for their children as their mother worked. Externally the children and the family appeared too many as a loving bunch when the doors were close Halden’s love for the drunk had made him abusive often taking his anger out on the kids as his wife was hardly around. By the age of ten, Halden’s abuse clearly had been focused on Greg who the father blamed for his entire failed life.

Externally Greg attempted to his family life private as long as the father didn’t turn on the younger children. Even to this day, Greg is very protective of his younger siblings. At school, Greg neither excelled nor lagged behind he merely kept the status quo. Getting fairly good grades, he never really stood out or drew too much attention to himself. Everything however in the household came to a grinding halt when Greg turned 13.

By now Halden’s drinking had gotten to the point where it was no longer private, many in the surrounding town knew but never intervened. With Wendy’s career now landing her in a coveted Academy slot the family forcing the family to move to San Francisco. On the eve of their big move, Halden’s anger turned and it was clear that his focus was now squarely on Greg’s younger sister Tiffany. Unable to control their father Greg and his younger brother Nathan knew what they had to do. However the youth were unable to control their father’s violent outburst and as a result, Greg’s younger brother Nathan and his father both died that night.

Unable to deal with the grief of losing a child due to her absent parenting, Wendy buried herself 100% percent into her work. Moving her hurting family to San Francisco, Wendy changed the remaining children’s last name to her own and since then has refused to speak of their father or the past. The events around Nathan’s death have never been spoken about as a family since their move.

While Greg was glad to be out from under his father’s thumb, the resulting secrecy also forever damaged his relationship with his mother. Unable to forgive his mother for her actions, Greg moved out of the family home at the age of 16 to live with friends, who he met while his mother worked at the Academy. With the help of his new family, Greg was able to get into the Academy on a Security/Tactical route. Again like the rest of his education, Greg’s grade was enough to pass but they were not exceptional.

After the Academy Greg’s career was an ebb and flow of successes and failed choices. Unable to truly deal with the events of his childhood both Greg’s personal life and his career in Star Fleet had really been able to take off. His first assignment to Starbase 226 was perhaps his most successful assignment. While working as a Security Officer on 226, Greg met a lifelong friend, Neil Harrington; probably the closest person to remain with Greg. It was also on 226 that Greg met Miranda Loughborough.  Miranda, a free spirit, an Intel Officer and Greg’s first true love. The two had a whirlwind romance that almost ended in marriage had it not been for Greg’s sudden reassignment to the USS Omega. Many were unaware at the time that Greg had been carrying on a secret affair with Commanding Officers’ wife. Miranda devastated by Greg’s action, cut all ties and to this day has never told Greg that their relationship fathered a child.

With several failed relationship and two demotions under his belt, Greg was given one last assignment to Deep Space 7. It was here that Greg reunited with his old friend from SB 226, Neil Harrington who was now the Commanding Officer of the station. Knowing that this assignment is his last hope before a Star Fleet Court Martial Greg is really attempting to make it work. But many in the Federation know that if Greg cannot deal with the events of the past he is doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

After what Greg considered a fail assignment into the investigation of an Admiral aboard DS7, Lt Alein felt he could no longer remain on the station. Feeling alienated from the crew due to his investigation Greg was transferred to the USS Phoenix were surprisingly he was offered a post as Executive Officer and reinstated as Lieutenant Commander.
