Early life Edit
John Martin was born in 2351 in San Diego, California on Earth. His mother was Admiral Maria Martin. John moved to Starbase 39-Sierra along the Romulan Neutral Zone during peace time with the Romulan Star Empire while Maria was stationed on the Klingon outpost Narendra III. While on a mission to keep the treaty enforced, the outpost suddenly came under attack by four Romulan warbirds, while on the outpost, his mother was wounded.
In 2367, at age 16, he entered Starfleet Academy and met a woman named Sito Jaxa of Red Squad. She was studying tactical simulations when Cadet Martin walked into the room and they first met. The two worked together to find the weakness in a Romulan warship that was discovered by them, and both received commendation with high honors by Vice Admiral Alynna Nechayev.
Then he met his best friend Lieutenant Typhuss James Halliwell in his command class one day and the two became best friends, brothers even, John worked together with Sito to get their work done and then Martin and Sito graduated in 2370.
Martin's first posting was on the old Moon-Mars run under Captain Jack Maynard. Martin and Maynard became close friends, nicknaming each other "Swamp Rat" and "Stinky" and getting into (and out of) several sticky situations together.
Martin was offered a post as tactical officer and security officer of the USS Cairo. He turned down the offer out of loyalty to his then-current Captain Roger Stearns, and because he was uncomfortable with the commanding officer of the Cairo.
During the war, Martin was the first officer of the USS Lexington. Sheridan took command of the Lexington when Captain Stearns was killed in a battle with a Cardassian battle cruiser in sector 887 while on border patrol, forcing Lieutenant Martin to take command of the ship and order an evacuation due to the warp core on the verge of breaching.
After the destruction of the Lexington Martin and half of the surviving crew were taken on different ships, as he was posted to the USS Kansas commanded by Captain Jane Mitchell, and kept fighting in the war.
The same year he was posted on board the Enterprise-D as a assistant tactical officer with the rank of Ensign, under the teaching of Lieutenant Worf he learned a lot from Worf and the two became good friends and brothers, Ensign Martin fell in love with Sito Jaxa but when he heard Picard announcing Sito's death it tore him up and he requested a transfer to Deep Space 9 and Picard granted the transfer.
