Lieutenant Hunter Berrin was assigned to Deep Space 6 in the Qualor system as the Gamma shift Security Team Leader for the Promenade. He did well in his position, but chafed under the restrictions placed on him in regards to pursuing and prosecuting criminals he came across. Taking note of this, his superior offered him command of the Wallace class USS Ajax. The Ajax was tasked with assisting in picking up the slack left behind by the departure of numerous ships supporting operations along the border of the Gorn Occupied Territories. Lieutenant Berrin only had to think over the options for a few moments before accepting the position. After returning to his quarters, he sent out a call station wide for volunteers to crew the Ajax and get her back out into space.
