Personal History
On stardate 2124, DeSalle was one of three people who beamed down to the planet Gothos in search of Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Sulu, who had been abducted by Trelane, a powerful alien. Expecting to arrive in an inhospitable climate, this landing party was surprised to discover an oasis of Earth-like conditions. When communications failed, DeSalle attempted to contact the ship using a laser beacon, but this method also failed. DeSalle later attempted to shoot Trelane with his phaser, but Trelane momentarily paralyzed DeSalle, procured the phaser and delightedly experimented with it, disintegrating several bizarre trophies he owned, before returning the weapon. Later that year, on stardate 3417, DeSalle accompanied Captain Kirk on a landing party to the Omicron colony, on Omicron Ceti III. DeSalle discovered that, anomalously, the colonists themselves had been the only animal beings to survive exposure to the planet's berthold rays. He also performed an analysis on crops grown by the colonists. Like the rest of the Enterprise crew, DeSalle fell under the influence of the Omicron spores and mutinied, though he later recovered, thanks to a subsonic transmitter. On stardate 3018, DeSalle was placed in command of the Enterprise while the rest of the senior staff (including the captain, first officer, chief engineer, and the helmsman) were off the ship, and spearheaded an effort to pierce an alien barrier, which had been erected by Korob to prevent the Enterprise from sending help to a landing party that was trapped on Pyris VII. The Enterprise crew was close to escaping the field when Korob removed it himself, as part of his effort to help the Starfleet explorers escape Sylvia's attention.
