First Lieutenant Jonathon Joseph Gunn is a marine officer serving on board the USS Nakatomi as of the year 2389. He is 37 years old and served during the Dominion War. He is famous for possibly causing a rout on the outpost he was serving at the time as a Squad Leader, and while many of his people were spared because of him the ultimate cost to the unit was huge. Many felt that he did not deserve a second chance, but his Unit Executive Officer became Unit Commanding Officer and would give him just that.

History

Childhood

Jonathon Gunn was born sometime in the year 2352 to Susan and Mark Gunn and has one elder brother named Jeffery. His early childhood is mostly a series of events that typically landed him in trouble with his parents as he was constantly getting into things that he should not and he had a severe problem with following the direction of his father. The man could sometimes become very violent almost to the point at which Jonathon was stabbed in the arm one night when his parents got into a late night and drunken argument. His brother did his best to protect Jonathon who often found himself stuck in the middle of these late night brawls that would last for hours and typically ended with someone in the family in the hospital and one of his parents in jail.

It of course wasn’t until he was contacted by the Federation Marine Corps that he felt that he could honestly make a difference and somehow escape his violent past. At sixteen he had numerous run ins with the law and was arrested at least once being associated with a gang did not help his cause either. Of course an officer in the Marines came to his school and talked about being an officer. That was when he knew he had a chance, and studied to get his grades to where they needed to be at. He barely broke through the barrier and was rejected when he requested to speak to an officer about the program being shoved to the side like a piece of trash. But, Jonathon didn’t let the let down stall his attempts and he would try to take the entrance exam and barely passed it for Marine standards at the time.

Starfleet Career

Jonathon would attend the Academy from the year 2370 to 2374, and would be thrust into the Dominion War as a Second Lieutenant. He served as a squadron officer in the four hundredth division, and that would be where he would become known as the night terror. While serving on Outpost four seven two the base was attacked by Jem’Hadar soldiers and his unit was quickly overwhelmed as they fought through the tunnel network of the planet. Doing what no marine should ever do he chose to run straight into the fighting switching to hand to hand combat to give his team time to flee. Jonathon was quickly overtaken and nearly killed, but somehow managed to survive his wounds. Relying heavily on adrenaline he managed to fend off the attackers, but at great cost. His unit was nearly decimated in the retreat, and his division commander determined that had Jonathon not retreated the division wouldn’t have lost the base to the attack.

Jonathon was informed that his career may be over, however he somehow managed to make it through the court hearing somewhat unscathed. His Commander was however replaced by the XO who quickly responded by promoting the Second Lieutenant to First Lieutenant and making him the Division Executive Officer. And, later in the year his division would be back on that planet and retaking the outpost once more. Many felt that Jonathon was a disgrace others felt that he was a hero, and he was put up for a detachment command on board a new ship a few years after the war.
