Braxton Jarvis was born in 2369 in San Diego, California, Earth. When he was three years old, his father, a Starfleet security officer serving on the USS Forrestal, died in a shuttle accident. After this tragic event, his mother, a prominent researcher on Memory Alpha, left him with his paternal aunt on Earth and left. Because of her work, they rarely talked to each other, and Jarvis was left mostly on his own, as his aunt was on call for long periods of time as a replicator and hologram technician. In 2387, he entered Starfleet Academy hoping to major in operations, but after advice from his Vulcan martial art mentor, he entered the Security Officer Training Program, where he was much better, becoming the Academy’s leading Human Vulcan martial arts champion.
He graduated in 2391, immediately becoming an ensign on the USS Normandy and serving there for 2 years. He then was promoted to Lieutenant and transferred to the USS Victory, where he served as assistant tactical/security watch officer until he was involved in an incident with another officer who harassed him, escalating into a fight. He was court-martialed for assaulting another officer and was sentenced to a reduction in rank and mandatory psychiatric evaluation once a week for a year, where upon the tribunal would review his record. He was transferred to Starbase 74 where he returned as an ensign.
After a year, Jarvis was re-promoted to Lieutenant and resumed his duty as security watch officer for another year, after which he was promoted to Lieutenant Commander for meritorious service during an attack by rogue Klingon rebels on the base. With that promotion, he became Chief of Station Security, equal to a CSO on a starship. After a year of that, he decided to transfer to the USS Yosemite as their chief of security.
