Personal History Jacques Etienne Theriault was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to Colonel (Then Major) Etienne Theriault of the Starfleet Marine Corps and his wife, Elena. Growing up, he was raised in the various postings his father was assigned to, and it was a foregone conclusion that he would join the Marines when he came of age. When he was 17 his father accompanied him to the recruiter's office and signed the consent forms, and it became official. Jacques reported to the Starfleet Marine Recruit Depot in Parris Island, South Carolina. He excelled in Boot Camp and the SFMC School of Infantry, and was posted to the 5th Marine Division (The Fighting 5th) on Jericho II. During his time there he did very well at the beginning of his third year in the Corps he was offered the opportunity to join the elite Orbital Drop Incursion Regiment, which he immediately accepted. He made Corporal just after he completed his jump training and was posted on New Haiti, where the regiment was posted. He was meritoriously promoted to Sergeant a few weeks before the start of the Dominion War. The 1st ODI Regiment (Archangels) was immediately deployed to the front lines. Near the end of the war's second year, just before Operation Return, the Archangels were dropped onto a world called Sheol. The drop immediately went sideways, suffering over 30% casualties before the first boots even touched the ground. However, the Marines managed to hold the line long enough for a strike force to break through Dominion lines and pull them out, along with the 319 Starfleet personnel assigned to the Sheol Research facility along with their families and the several hundred research staff from the Klingon Empire and several non Federation allied worlds. After Sheol, Jacques was reassigned to Starfleet Special Operations. He spent the remainder of the war behind enemy lines, the details of which were redacted from his records and can only be read by officers with Level 9 Omega Clearance. After the war ended he was sent to Earth to undergo psychological evaluation and treatment, which is where he met Voran Malina, a counselor's aide who was working in the office where he took his treatment. After a year long courtship, the pair were married, and less than a month after the wedding she announced that she was pregnant. The baby was a boy, whom Jacques named Etienne after his father. By then he had been promoted to Staff Sergeant and was posted to the First Marines on Earth. (The First and Finest) While Jacques was on a field training operation he was informed that his wife had been killed in a shuttle accident. Etienne had been at his parents' house, so he wasn't with her. Jacques, realizing that he could not remain in the Corps, resigned despite offers from his mother and older sister to take the boy in until he attained enough rank for accompanying dependents. Jacques instead applied to Starfleet Academy. His mother had a friend on the Federation Council and he was also endorsed by Vice Admiral James Harris, head of Starfleet Special Operations, his commanding officer during the last year of the Dominion War, and he was admitted as a midshipman. He chose Security and Tactical, thinking his Marine training and combat experience would come in handy. This thinking proved to be true, and he was often called upon to help teach marksmanship and fieldcraft as well as hand to hand combat. But he found he also liked tactical training as well, and spent a lot of his off duty time in the starship combat simulators. He graduated from the Academy with the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade, his previous time in the Marines having given him time in grade. He was then posted to the USS Goddard as a tactical officer, and did well enough to impress the ship's captain to make him Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer. His department head also endorsed this, and he advanced quickly to the rank of Lieutenant. He was next posted to the USS Gagarin as Chief Security Officer. After four years out on the frontier he was reassigned to Starfleet Academy, this time as an instructor, and has spent the last few years teaching starship combat tactics and tactical theory. However he started to grow restless and applied for a starship assignment, which was approved. He is currently awaiting assignment.
