Personal History Was born on Betazed. His father, and mother both Starfleet officers, father, Steven, being stationed to the on planet defense contingency there. His mother, Karen, just moved with her husband, and took pride in taking care of their home. Growing up on Betazed, wasn't too bad, though Liam never did get used to people reading his thoughts before he spoke them. So, as a bit of retaliation against his mind being read, he started just saying what he thought, most of it being jokes. When he was thirteen, his father retired from SF and they moved back to Earth. To a small farming community outside Dublin, Ireland. It was here that his aptitude for engineering shown through. Once they settled in on their family's farm, Liam found that he loved tinkering with the equipment, and finding ways to make them more productive...this didn't always pan out as a few of his "experiments" with the equipment literally blew up in his face.
One such incident was with a water recycler he thought he could get at 100 percent efficiency. The explosion threw him almost twenty yards into the field. At eighteen, his parents persuaded him that his talents would grow more if he went into Starfleet.
He was quickly accepted and his first couple of years at the Academy were uneventful. He was given a discplinary one week suspension for turning an upperclassman, James Williamson, green by altering his sonic shower. It was retaliatory from a practical joke that had his comm badge shock him every time it was used. No more incidents was on his record Though the feud between the two..is still on going.
Liam graduated with honors,and was immediately stationed to space duty, though not what he had expected. He was engineering officer on one of Starfleet's long range Subspace relay stations for two years before being transferred to the USS Topeka as a warp field specialist. He spent three years there, moving up to Assistant Chief.
He was then asked to come back to the Sol system, to the Eutopia Planetia Yards as part of one of the many Runabout projects there. He stayed there, helping design and build until the Dominion Wars started.
He was then transferred as Chief Engineer to the USS Tokyo, Akira class. The Tokyo, seeing her share of battles through the war, had given Liam the opportunity to fine tune the engines among other systems. Finally, the Tokyo was lost, and the surviving crew transferred to a new Tokyo, Akira refit class. Liam has served has her Chief Engineer until her decommission last year, and has been on extended leave since that time.
