Childhood and adolescence Edit source]

Miles Edward O'Brien was born on earth in Ireland in September 2328 and grew up in Dublin. (DS9:O'Brien's identity, The front)

As a child, O'Brien loved building models. As a child, O'Brien loved to build ships in bottles. In his youth he built model ships for the first warp capable spaceships. However, O'Brien has no talent for technical gadgets and is unable to fix anything. (TNG:The energy trap; DS9:The paradise experiment)

During his childhood, young O'Brien liked to tease teachers in class. (DS9:The succession)

O'Brien owned a dog when he was young and it took a lot of attention from him. (DS9:Personalities)

O'Brien has also been into music since childhood. This is how O'Brien learns to play the cello. O'Brien's father expects his son to study at the Aldebaran Academy of Music and become a cellist, but instead the young O'Brien goes to Starfleet. (DS9:The illusion)

Before O'Brien goes to the academy, he says goodbye to his siblings. (DS9:The symbiote)

Early career Edit source]

In 2346, O'Brien began his career as a recruited crewman with Starfleet. (DS9:The illusion)

Early in his career he served on the USS under the command of Captain Benjamin Maxwell Rutledge. It was around this time that O'Brien witnessed the Setlik III massacre, in which the Cardassians attacked the Federation outpost of Setlik III, killing many people in the process. O'Brien's commander, Captain Maxwell, also loses his family. O'Brien and Maxwell find few survivors. Shortly afterwards, the away team is attacked by Cardassians and involved in fighting. O'Brien stuns one of the Cardassians in one of the fights when suddenly another Cardassian attacks. One of the colonists throws a phaser at O'Brien. But this is set to full strength and the Cardassian soldier dissolves in front of O'Brien's eyes. This is a major shock to O'Brien as he has not yet killed anyone. It then comes to the Federal Cardassian War, where O'Brien continues to fight the Cardassians. (TNG:The campaign of revenge)

At the same time, O'Brien leads twelve men against the Barrica camp and kills an entire Cardassian regiment. It was around this time that O'Brien discovered his technical talents when he was forced to repair a van. In order not to get into Cardassian captivity, O'Brien repairs the transporter and is able to beam himself and his men away from Setlik III. Maxwell then appoints O'Brien as his tactical officer. (TNG:The campaign of revenge; DS9:The paradise experiment, Empok Nor)

A few years later, O'Brien must repair an important emitter on the Zayra IV starbase. However, there are some Talarian hook spiders in the shaft on the way to the emitter. Although O'Brien is very afraid of spiders, he crawls through the shaft between the spiders. Through this event, O'Brien overcomes his fear of spiders and even gets himself a tarantula, which he calls Christina. (TNG:Scared to death when beaming)

O'Brien has been serving vans since 2347. Until 2369 he had never experienced a disaster or anything like that. (TNG:Scared to death when beaming)

By 2372, O'Brien served on half a dozen ships, participated in over 235 combat situations, and received 15 Starfleet awards. (DS9:The battle, The judgment)

At that time the Enterprise their first assignment to check the space base Farpoint station. On the way there is the Enterprise enveloped by a kind of net and a stranger, who calls himself Q, appears on the bridge. Q reproaches people that they are a barbaric race and he forbids them to travel further through space. Since Q is the Enterprise is superior, Picard plans to outsmart him by ordering the separation of the saucer section at maximum acceleration. Picard transfers his command to the battle bridge and O'Brien controls the helm there. The saucer section escapes, but Q captures the combat section of the Enterprise off again and the bridge crew is suddenly in a courtroom in the year 2079, in the post-atomic horror period. Q again accuses the bridge officers of the barbarism of the people. Picard stands up for people and wants to prove that people have improved over time. As a test from Q, Picard is commissioned to solve the puzzle at Farpoint Station. The bridge officers are then transferred back to the battle bridge and O'Brien wonders where his colleagues have gone. The combat section then flies to Farpoint Station. O'Brien thinks Farpoint Station is a boring place, but Picard thinks it could get very interesting there. At Farpoint, Picard Q later succeeds in solving the task and he can prove that people have meanwhile developed further. (TNG:The powerful, Mission Farpoint)

A few weeks later the Enterprise Delegates of the Anticans and the Selay to the planet Parliament. When one of the Anticans leaves his quarters, O'Brien tries to stop him, but the Antican urgently wishes to speak to the captain. Suddenly a Selay arrives and the two attack each other.

A little later discovered the Enterprise a hole in space and the ship gets into it. The Enterprise is caught in the anomaly and wanders about in it. Suddenly the USS appears Yamato and William T. Riker and Worf beam over to find out what happened. O'Brien is responsible for transporting them and later O'Brien beams them back onto the Enterprise. A little later the Enterprise escaped from the anomaly. (TNG:Illusion or reality?)

A few weeks later, O'Brien beams Picard with an away team to the planet Ramatis III so that Picard can meet the agent Riva there. O'Brien later beams the away team back and reports this to the bridge. Shortly thereafter, O'Brien beams Riva and an away team to the planet Solais V so that Riva can negotiate with the Solari, who are in a civil war. However, when the away team is threatened, O'Brien immediately beams it back to the Enterprise. O'Brien later orbits Riva back to the surface so he can continue his negotiations. (TNG:The mute mediator)

Due to the influence of genetic experiments carried out at the Darwin genetic research station on Gagarin IV, the crew of the USS dies Lantree the consequences of a rapid aging process. The Enterprise then goes to Gagarin IV to investigate these incidents. Doctor Katherine Pulaski wants to examine one of the children who have been genetically engineered there. Geordi La Forge monitors the force field the boy is in, and O'Brien beams him into the force field. Since Pulaski wants to examine the boy completely, she asks Picard to examine the boy in a shuttle and Picard agrees. O'Brien then beams the boy into the shuttle. On board the shuttle, Pulaski discovers that the boy, like the other children, has an aggressive immune system that fights pathogens outside of his own body. These antibodies trigger the aging process and now Pulaski is also affected. In order to treat Pulaski's disease, O'Brien modified the biofilter of the transporter and with the transporter data from Pulaski it should be beamed back on board without the pathogen. Since this transport is very risky, Picard takes it over and O'Brien is very grateful to his captain for it. While Picard takes care of the transport, O'Brien oversees the systems. Pulaski successfully aboard the Enterprise beamed and the aging process is reversed. (TNG:The young old men)

A little later, Riker takes part in the officer exchange program on a Klingon spaceship. O'Brien beams Riker to the ICS Pagh and is glad that he doesn't have to go there. (TNG:The exchange officer)

Picard then beams to the surface with an away team to investigate the Iconian technology. O'Brien can keep the van stable long enough to beam the away team to the planet's surface. On the surface, the away team finds a solution that Enterprise to get rid of the dangerous program. (TNG:The Iconia probes)

A few weeks later, O'Brien beams a piece of debris from the NASA spacecraft Charybdis from planet Theta 116 VIII aboard the Enterprise.

Some time later discovered the Enterprise a floating shuttle in space. The shuttle poses as the shuttle El-Baz of the Enterprise out. There is also an unconscious Captain Picard in the shuttle, although the real Picard is also on the bridge at the same time. This shuttle is six hours from the future. In this future the Enterprise destroyed by an anomaly and Picard is the only survivor. After about six hours, the Enterprise into this anomaly and is trapped in it. The second Picard wants to go with the El-Baz the Enterprise to save the spaceship from the anomaly. But the real Picard realizes he has to stop the other Picard to get the Enterprise to rescue. Picard kills his doppelganger and thus prevents the leap in time El-Baz. Then Doctor Pulaski and O'Brien join and Pulaski can only determine the death of the second Picard. As the Enterprise escapes the anomaly, the second Picard disappears with the shuttle and O'Brien reports this to the bridge. (TNG:The future is silent)

When the Enterprise Located at Montgomery Starbase, Commander Riker's father, Kyle Riker, comes aboard the Enterprise.

2366 [edit | Edit source]

In 2366, the Sheliak Corporation requested that a human colony on Tau Cygna V be evacuated so that the Sheliak could colonize the planet. Due to the hyperonic radiation, beaming onto the surface is impossible. O'Brien and Geordi La Forge try to modify the transporter so that it can be beamed onto the surface. Ultimately, the two of them find a solution to the problem, La Forge only needs several hundred experts who modify the transporter over a period of 15 years so that transport is even possible. Picard of course rejects this suggestion, and another solution for the evacuation has already been found. (TNG:The power of paragraphs)
