Starfleet History
2379: Reassigned to USS Demeter as Commanding Officer

Personal History
In the 2350s/2360s, then-Lieutenant O'Donnell had once been assigned to help the Kressari, during which time had married a Kressari wife named Alana. At one point, Liam and Alana were expecting a child, but lost the baby due to miscarriage. Alana died of complications due to the miscarriage. By 2379, Commander O'Donnell was considered to be one of the most experienced genetic biologists in the Federation, making him the perfect officer to lead xenobiology research in the Full Circle fleet. However, having earned his rank through academic accolades rather than through command experience, his position as CO of the Demeter was considered highly contentious. With only being in command of a research station for six years as his only command experience, it was decided that O'Donnell would be appointed the Demeter's captain on the condition that he was provided a first officer with considerable command and tactical experience that would supplement his lack of command leadership. Admiral Willem Batiste gave O'Donnell a choice of ten officers to pick to be his first officer, and his choice was Lieutenant Commander Damien Sinclair. He was also close friends with Demeter's Chief Engineer, Lieutenant Garvin Elkins; in fact, their friendship was the only reason Elkins agreed to serve on Demeter and accept a Starfleet commission.
