Personal History Darien Morningstar was born bearing the name of his mother as is Betazoid custom (Betazed is a matriarchal society). His parents were politically and socially well connected but managed to give Darien a normal childhood full of love.

Darien was a cute baby, who grew into a handsome teenager. His parents had not selected a mate for thier son at birth, instead allowing him to make his own decisions. Darien found accepting his sexuality an easy process because of Betazeds open society.

At eighteen he entered Starfleet Academy with a major in Intergalactic Politics and Sociology. His minors wsere Federation History and Alien Traditions and Customs. At the Academy he was a popular, but dedicated student and he graduated in the top ten percent of his class.

Darien eventually sought after and was approved for enrollment in the Federations Diplomacy school. He graduated third in his class and was stationed aboard Deep Space 42 in the Delta Quadrant upon his graduation.

It was here at Deep Space 42 that he met his future husband, Jackson Powell, a Marine. The two were together, as Imzadis, for only two years before Jackson was killed in a shuttle accident. That was three years ago and Darien still seeks out a counselor for his grief.

After Jackson's death he asked to transfer to USS Crazy Horse. He served there until he was sent to Starfleet Command to await assignment on his next vessel.
