Personal History
By 2344, he attained the rank of lieutenant junior grade. His mother called him "Richard." In 2344, he served as a helmsman aboard the USS Enterprise-C under the command of Captain Rachel Garrett. In that year, the Enterprise-C responded to a distress call from the Klingon outpost at Narendra III, which was under attack by four Romulan Warbirds. Castillo was on the bridge during the firefight and survived as the Enterprise-C was badly damaged and drifted through a temporal rift, arriving in the year 2366. He was rescued by the crew of the ship's immediate successor, the USS Enterprise-D, which was nearby the rift at that time. The Enterprise-D immediately started repairs, with Castillo acting as liaison while Garrett recovered in sickbay. Captain Jean-Luc Picard informed them that the Federation was now at war with the Klingon Empire, and was on the brink of defeat. It was eventually determined that the Enterprise-C's journey through the rift had resulted in the creation of this alternate timeline, and that, if they wished to restore the proper flow of history, the Enterprise-C would have to return through the rift, in the middle of the battle with the Romulans. Despite certain death, Castillo, among many of the crew, agreed that they should return. As the crew of the Enterprise-D assisted their counterparts in making repairs, Castillo made the acquaintance of Tasha Yar, the Enterprise-D's chief tactical officer. She taught him about the advances made during their time, what life was like, and they became close. Castillo having to leave caused a certain amount of distress for both Yar and himself, but they both knew what he had to do. Instead of returning to 2344 the Enterprise-C was thrust into a different quantum reality and into the year 2380.
