In 2409, Darrow was serving aboard the USS Leviathan as an engineer's assistant to the chief engineer, Jhael Onika, as well as his successor, Phil Schrader. Darrow accompanied an away team to a Klingon outpost in the Bomari system, and assisted security chief Vance L'eher in placing spatial charges on the outpost.
During an encounter with Nausicaan pirates in the Celes system, Commander Jarek Davis (then in command of the Leviathan) recklessly chose to attack the Nausicaans, despite being outnumbered. Though the Leviathan survived, the ship was left heavily damaged, and six officers were killed in engineering, including Onika, who had stayed to contain a warp core breach. Darrow was forced to drag Schrader out of engineering, because he refused to leave Onika's side.
Darrow was one of several candidates to replace Onika as chief engineer, following his death. In the end, Commander Davis chose Schrader to be Onika's replacement.[a]
He was one of many crewmen suspicious of Davis' unusual behavior, and assisted in freeing the Leviathan's senior officers who had been locked in the brig.
Background and trivia Edit
- In writing "Stop the Signal", CaptFredricks did not specify Darrow's career path, though it was implied he may have been a security officer. However, in subsequent episodes, it was shown that he was actually an engineering officer.
- In "Treasure Trading Station", Darrow gave his name as "Darrow, William R." CaptFredricks has indicated that the "R" stands for Richard.
