Personal History n working really well. His team was called upon to transport down to a planet when a shuttle had crashed landed due to engine failure. The chief engineer had betrayed the crew and he was a member of Section 31. Chris was not able to save the shuttle, but managed to get the crew off of the planet. He informed the Captain and the CO decided to have Chris as his Chief engineer, which he continued his tour as. After the tour he was assigned to Deep Space 1 as the Chief engineer. The space station was an old Cardassian “Nor” class. The food replications were a constant problem. Since he was new he would reach out to Chief Miles O’Brien on Deep Space Nine. He had to consistently manage the technologies between the two species, he managed to do well with it. The station constantly had incoming ships with repair needs and he had to learn about different technologies. After two years there LTJG Barks was re-assigned to the Klingon Vorcha Class IKS Huma. The Captain Gok didn’t like Chris at all. He had to learn about klingon engine systems as well as other systems such as weapons. He managed to get the phaser banks 20% more effective. At first the crew of the Huma didn’t like him but about after 2 months they warmed up to him and the crew ate together. They even made him a Klingon Uniform with the accurate rank equivalent for a Klingon Officer. After years of service they gave him a grand ceremony for departing and Chris was reassigned as the Chief Engineering Officer of the USS Grand Canyon an Oberth starship. He only have one engineering officer on that ship. He did well. He managed to get the ship through sticky situations and also got some more bridge command time. The Commanding Officer a Commander Right appreciated it and after two years award him a commendation. Chris then wanted to work with state of the art so he saw posting for an Assistant Chief Engineering Officer with a rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade and accepted the position on the Prometheus Class USS Ares. After his assignment to the USS Ares as the Chief Engineering officer Chris, did something most aren't able to do he skipped the rank of Lieutenant and was made a Lieutenant Commander due to his high school of executive officer school and served as the First officer for the USS Cochrane, when the CO resigned Chris took command with a promotion to Commander and then Captain.
