|Personal History||Born on Luna Colony in 2353 captain of school rugby team and athelete of the year he finally joined the academy where he trained in security and left in the top ten of his class in 2372.
Upon graduation his first assignment was on the USS Madison where he was assistant security officer until 2373 when the USS Madison was destroyed whilst fighting the Dominion and was the only crewmember above Ensign to survive he spent a few months in rehab before returning to duty in early 2374.
After his return to duty Elijah joined the USS Norway as Chief of Security with a commission as Lieutenant JG where he served by the end of the war in 2375. During his time onboard the ship Elijah had reccuring nightmares from his time on the Madison.
Elijah moved to the USS Copenhagen in 2376 as her Chief Tactical Officer and later received a promotion to Lieutenant. He was still troubled by nightmares.
While on shoreleave on Risa in 2379 he had considered resigning due to his severe nightmares until a chance encounter with Captain William Riker convinced him otherwise and took a position on the USS Titan until 2381.
By 2381 Elijah was a Lieutenant Commander on Starbase 76 however he was incarcirated for assault of his CO Vice Admiral Sebastian Gates which forced him with a demotion to Lieutenant and spent 2 years in prison until he was released and returned to duty on earth under then Captain Timothy Goddard. Finally Elijah took the Chief of Security job on Starbase Serenity in 2384.
The reason Elijah assaulted the admiral was that Gates commanded the Galaxy class USS Cosmos during the war and was believed to be corrupt by Captain Delax of the Madison after Delax discovered Gates was giving intelligence to the Dominion. Madison was destroyed in the fight that ensued Elijah and Solan Tigh were two of six to escape. Elijah knew what happened but didn't tell anybody as the proof was destroyed with Captain Delax.
