Eugene Edison was born on January 08, 2336 in Birmingham, England on the European continent on Earth. He was born to Silvia Claire Edison and Oliver David Edison. Both of his parents served in Starfleet when he was born. The Edison family has a long-standing tradition with Starfleet and yet Eugene became more interested in music. When his mother gifted him a piano when he was twelve years old he soon became passionate about becoming a musician.
Against the wishes of his father he applied and was accepted to the Juilliard School for Music in New York City. While studying at Juilliard Edison met a young woman from Argentina named Isabelle. He fell madly in love with her and began to neglect his studies. His relationship with Isabelle ended when she returned to Argentina and his passion for music diminished.
He left Juilliard to sign up with Starfleet in 2355. During his Academy years, Eugene was very active in the swim team eventually becoming its captain. He excelled at the Academy and earned many accolades. He graduated in 2359 with honors and as twelfth of his class.
His first assignment out of the Academy was on the frigate USS Delaware as a security officer.
In 2364 he became the ship’s tactical officer and served successfully in that position for three years until he realized that he was more interested in pursuing a career with more responsibilities and switched over to the command track.
He accepted an opening as a second officer on Starbase 12 in 2366. Realizing that his position was a mostly administrative post he quickly attempted to transfer back to a starship. Eugene’s attempts remained unsuccessful however and he continued to serve on the starbase while managing to impress his superior officers with his dedication and competence.
In 2369 he was nearly killed during a routine shuttle transit had it not been for the resourcefulness of his shuttle pilot, a Krellonian by the name of Lif Culsten. He would later remember the pilot and suggest him as a helmsman for the USS Eagle.
Later the same year Edison managed to secure a post on the cruiser USS Crazy Horse, taking over for the retiring first officer to become acting executive officer. He showed great distinction at his new post.
In 2370 he almost single-handedly averted a major political crisis on Elderon IV and was awarded the Citation for Conspicuous Gallantry. Even though his position was supposed to be temporary he was made permanent first officer in light of his accomplishments.
Crazy Horse was heavily damaged by a spatial anomaly in early 2371 and the vessel was brought into Utopia Planitia fleet yards for a major refit and repairs. A process that would take a lengthy period of time it was decided to permanently reassign the crew.
In 2371 he accepted Captain Owens’ offer to serve as first officer on the USS Eagle. While on Eagle he became involved in a romantic relationship with the vessel’s chief of security Nora Laas.
Eugene Edison was tragically killed in action during a mission to Ligos IV in 2374. He will be remembered as an extraordinary friend and human being by all those who served with him.
