CAPTAIN LELAND J. MADDOX, STARFLEET
Born from cryptic astrophysicists in the infirmary at the Daystrom Institute Annex on Galor IV 11 April 2351, Captain Leland John Maddox spent most of his formative years traveling from star to star. A gnawing restlessness, coupled with a propensity for applying unconventional means to practical problems, led to his application and admittance into Starfleet Academy in the Fall of 2367 to the contempt of his parents. He graduated second in his class at Starfleet Academy with degrees in Interstellar Security and Political Science through the Intensive Theoretical Research Program in 2371.
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, and, most recently, Commanding Officer of the Advanced Tactical Schools Command.
