Biographical Data

Personal History

Hiroto was born in the town of Adarak in the Kendra Province on Bajor in late fall 2351 and was the middle of three children with his older brother Dohl and younger sister Shry. His parents, Jorah and Pyma were owners of a kava farm and vineyard and expected that he and his brother and sister would take over the farm someday.

Early life for him was hard and he split his time between classes and helping on the farm. From an early age, almost from his first memories, he despised all things Cardassian. Living under Cardassian rule was far from enjoyable, but he and his siblings found fun where they could. At the age of 14, he and his family became part of the millions of Bajorans interred by the Cardassians in labor camps. One evening a company of Cardassian soldiers came for the purpose of 'conscripting' the residents of Adarak and it's outlying farmsteads. Those who resisted were summarily executed and many of the women and young girls, to include his mother, were raped. Hiroto wanted to protect his mother and try to fight off the Cardassians but his father, a firm believer in non-violence, held the boy back. From that day forward, Hiroto lost all respect for the man.

His existence, it couldn't really be called a life, in the labor camp was harsh and violent. The Bajoran slave laborers would have to work long days while enduring the abuse of their Cardassian taskmasters. Executions for crimes as small as hoarding food were not unheard of. Daily 'recreational' beatings, with wagers being placed on how long it would take the victim to pass out were a common distraction for the guards. Hiroto suffered through many of these beatings and wears the scars as a reminder. His father was the first of his family to die at the hands of the guards in 2364, having been chosen randomly for execution along with thirty others in response to an attack on a guard. In late 2365 his Mother and Brother died from an illness coupled with malnutrition.

In 2366, Hiroto and his sister were part of work detail clearing some forest land which would be used to expand the camp proper. As the detail was ending for the day there was an attack by the Resistance. In the confusion, Hiroto, his sister and several of the other Bajorans managed to escape and were taken back to the Resistance camp. Hiroto and his sister were given food and medical treatment along with the other freed prisoners. When he had regained his strength, Hiroto convinced the resistance leader to allow him to take arms and fight with the resistance. At the age of 15, he killed his first Cardassian with a hand phaser, suffering a stab wound in the process. From that point until the end of the occupation three years later, killing Cardassians was his driving goal. He rarely discusses his experiences in the resistance and he regrets few of the things that he did.

After the occupation Hiroto briefly served with the newly formed Bajoran Militia, then, hearing about a program which would allow Bajorans to attend Starfleet Academy he transmitted his application. In 2370 at the age of 19, he arrived at the Academy and took classes specializing in Starship systems and Security procedures. Academically he was an average student, however, his unruly and at times combative nature often landed him in front of the disciplinary board. Luckily, none of his offenses were ever serious enough to result in suspension. Throughout his Academy years, Hiroto had a hard time fitting in with the other cadets. The reason wasn't that they weren't accepting of him, the problem was that he saw them as pampered and sheltered. He had seen more adversity and horror by the time he was 8 than most of these kids could even imagine.

Service Record

After graduation in 2374, he was assigned to the U.S.S. Galaxy and split his duties between Operations and Security. He saw action during the Dominion War at the First Battle of Chintoka and the Battle of Cardassia. During this time he also earned a promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.

In 2377 he was assigned to the U.S.S. Bellerophon (NCC-74705) serving as an Operations Officer. During a six-year tour, he was able to earn promotion to Lieutenant and served as the Assistant Chief of Operations.

In 2383 he was assigned to Deep Space Nine and served in the Operations Department as an Assistant Department Head. In 2385, after a serious altercation with a Cardassian, in which the Cardassian almost died, Hiroto faced a disciplinary hearing before the station commander. Due to the seriousness of the offense and taking into account his overall record the hearing resulted in his reduction in rank to Ensign, a formal reprimand, and transfer to the Security Department where he was detailed to the brig. In 2387 Hiroto was assigned to the security detail for a visiting Bajoran Minister. During an assassination attempt by a member of a dissident group Hiroto shielded the Minister with his own body and was seriously wounded in the process, an action which earned him a commendation.

In early 2388 he requested a transfer to the U.S.S. Hawk, which was approved. He served as a Flight Officer.

After the Hawk returned to Starbase Unity Etana was transferred to the U.S.S. Valhalla and assigned to the Operations Department.
