Ernie Michael Hauser[2] was a male Human who served in Starfleet during the 2400s as flight controller of the USS Leviathan. He held the rank of lieutenant junior grade as of 2409.

He initially served as an astrometrics scientist, but the death of the Leviathan's previous flight controller forced him to take on the new role.

Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Ernie Michael Hauser (serial number EG-119-627) was a male Human born to David and Micha Hauser on stardate 61899.2 in Tycho City, Luna.[2]

Ernie worked with his parents at their restaurant during his childhood, and even had the unique opportunity of naming it; he chose Pike's Kitchen, in honor of his hero, Captain Christopher Pike. Even at the young age of 12, he had aspirations to join Starfleet, stating that "Someday, I'll fly to every one of those twinkling stars."[3]

Starfleet Academy Edit

Though he majored in astrometrics at the Academy, Ernie also became an accomplished pilot.[4][5][6]

On stardate 82513.9, Ernie attended the Class of 2408 graduation ceremony on Earth. While walking to the platform, he stated that he disliked "big events."[7]

Service on the USS Leviathan Edit

Ernie and fellow graduates Hannah Freeman, Jason Fredricks, Vance L'eher, and Jhael Onika boarded a shuttlecraft that took them to their first assignment, the USS Leviathan. During the flight, Jhael cited some of the Leviathan's statistics, including its maximum warp velocity as Warp 5.2; Ernie corrected him, stating that the Leviathan could now reach Warp 7 after its recent refit.

He served as an astrometrics scientist for roughly eight months until stardate 83164.0, when the Leviathan came under attack by the IKS Chot, which had used a civilian distress call as bait to lure a Federation ship to them. During the attack, Marvolo Piers, the Leviathan's flight controller, was killed. Ernie later reported to the bridge along with other "replacement" officers, and he took over for Piers.[8]

On stardate 83165.2, the Borg attacked Vega IX. Ernie accompanied Jason and Tala Jones to the surface of the planet to evacuate its inhabitants. In order to do so, they had to bring down a network of transport inhibitors set up by the Borg.[9]

Ernie was promoted to the rank of lieutenant junior grade on stardate 83468.7. Franklin Drake had read Jason's report of Ernie's level-headedness in dealing with the pirates who had attacked the Leviathan in the Drozana system, and believed Ernie to have "innate" commanding abilities. He did warn Ernie, however, that he would have a "head full of grey" by the time he was 30 years old if he continued to always be hard on himself.[10]

Relationships Edit

Family Edit

Ernie's parents initially wanted him to work at their restaurant with them on Luna. Ernie, however, was more interested in becoming a Starfleet officer than working in a kitchen. His parents later encouraged him to try new things, seeing that their son had strong ambitions beyond their own.[11][12]

Ernie's father, David, was critically injured in a bombing on Tycho City on stardate 83626.4, and he died the following night. His mother, Micha, however, was stabilized.[13]
