Personal History Dan lived on earth adopting a more human name than his original where he led a frustrating life always getting into trouble, trying to learn and strategize using techniques learnt throughout the ages always getting let go time and time again he would try out of boredom to try these new strategies out against the humans he met over the years living on earth. He had seen lots of wonderful things throughout history. Murphy taught history at a local university in Ireland to ease the boredom and teach what he learnt living on earth for so long. He learnt to fly as a hobby to kill some time during the evenings and weekends and owned several historic warbirds during his time flying in Ireland earning his twin engine licence a few years later
Murphy ended up seeing the various technical strides the humans made and the likes of first contact and other wonderful sights leading the earthlings into space and beyond. He loathed to get back into space as earth now bored him still teaching day to day and running historical tours during the weekends as he space beckoned him to go out and explore. It was as if Dan’s calling was in space helping the new fledgling space fleet out any way he could. He had built his own crude craft of some description to try and impress people around him and get noticed by Starfleet for the Academy. Dan had also kept a scale flying model of the Intrepid Type a class he really loved at heart and would fly it around demonstrating the early days of spaceflight within Starfleet
Dan joined Starfleet in the early 2100’s joining the academy as a cadet he chose Strategic Operations as a way to put his skills to good use and was top of his class at graduation. He taught history as a side thing for a few years before joining a crew when a spot opened up on the SS Intrepid which Dan could not pass up the opportunity to serve in Starfleet and explore the galaxy. He adored the Intrepid Type and hoped one day to build a full scale replica to explore the galaxy after he retired at some point in his career. Murphy enjoyed serving on this vessel and would always give 100% and one day wanted to command the type exploring the galaxy or own one to go travelling around
Dan enjoyed the various missions of the Intrepid earning the star cross medal at some point in his career aboard the ship before moving onto pastures new when the role was retired. The role reappeared on the Zheng He a Daedalus class starship which was a new thing and enjoyed the company and the commanding officer Robert Kingston who was brilliant at his job and was great to get along with for. He went from an ensign to Lieutenant JG for a small stint after Robert Kingston retired and was replaced by a new commanding officer before the position finally retired
The position was retired for a while and Dan was sent back to headquarters to join them for a small stint but it didn't work out too well so he went back to teaching history at the academy for a short stint as Murphy was stuck in reserve. He enjoyed every moment of the posting, getting to love teaching new cadets about earth’s history. Starfleet eventually needed my services once again when the position was made permanent on ships and joined the Boston as a Lieutenant Junior Grade officer under the command of Daniel Turner. He was awarded the Christopher Pike Medal of Valor for going above and beyond the call of duty to step up when others did not want to to save the ship and its crew from sudden death when most of the officers were either dead or out of action. The crew decided to nominate Dan Murphy for the medal for his heroism under fire, keen willingness to never give up in any unwinnable situation and was promoted to Lieutenant before moving onwards to a new career somewhere else.
Dan was posted to the Freedom for 3 years to see out the ship's final days helping it complete several missions before decommissioning. It was a sad day when the ship pulled into port watching the admirals standing there waiting to decommission the old gal to confine it to the history books. The next step was being posted to the Galahad for another short stint in which the CO was taken ill and the ship returned to port to await a new commanding officer to take charge. Murphy waited in the base to hear if they got a new CO or if the crew were going to be split up and posted elsewhere with the ship being mothballed.
He ended up on the Alabama when the crew was finally split up from his last posting where on the Boston he was awarded the Medal of Valor during his ten years aboard the fine ship serving under the commanding officer Charlotte Foster, a young female captain with very little experience and not a lot of get up and go spunk. He was whisked away from the posting to join a classified Starfleet project in which he helped define tactics and other things essential to make it work. For six years he was employed by Starfleet to work on the projects put in front of him and loved every moment of it. Dan was also a Lieutenant Commander during this stint and enjoyed the power that came with the rank.
Murphy was transferred to the Edmonton as part of Starfleet's initiative to improve certain areas of around the borders and improve the wellbeing of the fleet itself, parting his knowledge onto the crew of the border cutter. He was awarded the Grankite Order of Tactics medal for his stupidity and tactics which in turn saved the border from disaster in the process also being court martialled for it and the actions that followed. He was demoted from Lieutenant Commander to a Lieutenant and posted to Starbase Orion as part of the court ruling for 3 years then returned to Starfleet Academy for a probationary period before being allowed back onto a ship.
