Personal History
He was born on planet Brikar Prime as just simply "Zak" within the Clan Kebron to Mol Zebron and Tel Zebron. Kebron entered Starfleet Academy in the year 2357, as only the third Brikar to be accepted to that institution. Upon arrival at the Academy campus in San Francisco, but before checking in, Kebron picked a fight with the Academy's first Klingon recruit, Worf. Kebron's people had a history of conflict with the Klingon Empire, and he considered all Klingons to be cold blooded killers. The Academy dealt with this situation by making Kebron and Worf roommates, forcing them to work out their differences. Kebron's squadron (which consisted of Worf, Soleta of Vulcan, and humans Mark McHenry and Tania Tobias) were part of an Academy attachment that was on the planet Dantar IV when the colony was attacked by the Brikar, who had briefly declared war on the Federation. Kebron eventually graduated, becoming the first Brikar in Starfleet. In 2361, Kebron was assigned to the USS Ranger as a security officer under Chief of security Lieutenant commander Raka. Kebron went undercover as a park statue on the planet Iban in order to apprehend a Federation bureaucrat who was selling military secrets to the Cardassian Union. Although that mission didn't go as planned, Kebron managed to save the life of Iban Prime Minister Niad from an assassination attempt.

In 2373, Kebron became the Security and Tactical officer aboard the USS Excalibur (NCC-26517) under Captain Mackenzie Calhoun. The Excalibur's mission was to provide aid, comfort and stability to the residents of Sector 221-G, formerly known as the Thallonian Empire. Also on the Excalibur were his Academy classmates, Soleta and Mark McHenry. Kebron got off on the wrong foot with Thallonian "Ambassador" Si Cwan after Cwan stowed away onboard the Excalibur without Kebron's knowledge. However, Kebron's animosity toward Cwan did not deter him from defending Cwan, whose enemies attempted to assassinate him. Kebron served as the Excalibur's security chief until the vessel's destruction early in the year 2376. Shortly after the destruction of the Excalibur, Kebron and McHenry went on an undercover assignment on the planet Liten, where they had an encounter with the entity known as Q. It was here that Kebron came to the realization that McHenry was hiding something about his true nature. Kebron began an intense investigation of his Academy friend, who turned out to be a blood relative of the Being known as Apollo.

When the Excalibur-A launched in mid-2376, Kebron resumed his post as ship's Chief of security. Shortly after the launch of the ship, Kebron started to under go a metamorphosis in which large portions of his rock-like skin began to peel away, eventually revealing a new 'skin' underneath. This was part of the Brikar maturation process. Kebron described it as moving past adolescence and into adulthood. The old surly, taciturn Kebron was replaced by a friendly and talkative Kebron. Kebron continued to serve as the new Excalibur's security chief throughout the brief war with the Selelvians and the Tholian Assembly. By 2379, Kebron was doing double-duty as both security chief, and head Counselor. He was on board the Excalibur in late 2379, when the ship was temporarily swept into the gelatinous realm of the race known as the Teuthis.

IN early 2380 Kebron was pegged by Captain Farkas to be the Second Officer of her new ship the Quirinal which was part of Project Full Circle. With the new assignment came a promotion to Lieutenant Commander.
