Personal History:

     Having come from a military family whose parents were career noncommissioned officers, young Piotr had fallen in love with everything the Federation armed forces stood for. Enough so that when he turned 16 Piotr enlisted into the Marines, much to his father's chagrined amusement. His years prior to the war with the Founders were average to satisfactory, with Piotr gradually rising to lance corporal and the Special Forces School in Fort Javis - where he then served aboard the USS Yorktown Marine Detachment as a recon sniper for three years.

During the three years as a recon sniper, Piotr developed quite a reputation within the Corps' covert forces and was quickly transferred over to the
Starfleet Academy Enlisted Training School; so as to instruct marine and security recruits.

Then the Dominion War broke out. Under orders from Starfleet Command, all active duty and reserve Federation Marines were to be assigned to all battleworthy Starfleet vessels in company sized formations. At which point, Piotr and 40 of his training recruits were assigned to the USS Meridian
Marine Detachment. Like the
Springfield, the Meridian was grouped along with a dozen other Starfleet vessels and instructed to patrol twenty light years of border between Federation and Cardassian space. All told, an entire battalion was aboard those ships. Only a quarter would make it back.

Every day for two years the
Meridian and her sister ships engaged in hostilities with Cardassian cruisers. With the nearest friendly ships almost six hours away and no ships in reserve, it seemed as if the Federation's mighty back had been broken. By the end of the first year, the battlegroup consisted of
thirteen ships, all damaged in some way, half of them Starfleet, the other half boarded Cardassian vessels.

Gaining much command experience while part of the taskforce, Piotr had wed a fellow marine. Unfortunately, his wife was killed in action nine
weeks later.

After the war Piotr asked for retraining, away from sniping but still within the Marines, and was transferred to the
Shuttle Operations School at
Starfleet Academy. Upon graduation, where his father was present to proudly hand his son a promotion to Gunnery Sergeant, Piotr was placed as a shuttle pilot within the USS Kirkwood Marine Detachment - where he served for several months before being transferred to the Swiftsure.
