Captain Leland J. Maddox was born on Earth in the year 2351, in the historic city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Growing up in a city steeped in history and culture, Leland was inspired by the tales of early explorers and the founding of the United States of America. As a child, he often visited the Franklin Institute, a renowned science museum, where he developed a keen interest in space exploration and a desire to join Starfleet.

Leland’s parents, both accomplished scientists, encouraged his intellectual pursuits and nurtured his love for space exploration. He excelled in school, particularly in the areas of mathematics, physics, and astronomy. His passion for space only grew stronger as he learned more about the history of the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet’s role in exploring the galaxy.

At the age of 18, Leland applied and was accepted into Starfleet Academy. He chose to specialize in command and tactics, intending to one day captain his own starship. Throughout his four years at the Academy, Leland’s dedication and natural leadership abilities earned him the respect of his peers and instructors alike.

His first assignment following graduation was aboard USS Thunderchild (NCC-63549) as a junior security/tactical officer from 2371-2376. Original thinking, unwavering resolve, and his strongly marked personality saw him through the Borg Incursion of 2373 and the Dominion War- earning promotion to full Lieutenant in near record time and selection for the Advanced Tactical Training Program in 2376.

Following successful completion of Advanced Tactical Training, he completed a six-year tour as Chief Tactical/Security Officer aboard USS Venture (NCC-71854) where he was selected for lateral transfer to the command track in 2385.

After selection, he subsequently served as Executive Officer aboard USS Bellerophon (NCC-74705), Commanding Officer, USS Sizemore, Commanding Officer of the Advanced Tactical Schools Command, USS Thomas Paine (NCC-65550), Chief of Staff to Commander, Starbase Eight Six, and Commanding Officer, USS Pandora.
