History Edit

In late 2342, Anorra, and Pollus Lucifel perished in Transport accident. Damien, and Deragon survived, but were accidentally separated during the rescue. Damien was recognized as their only sibling, and was raised by Gabriele Minos. Deragon would become the sole heir of the Lucifel holdings, which included a partnership in Triton Grull Enterprises. In 2350 a failed attempt to remove him from his chaired position caused a split in the company, with Deragon remaining in control of the starship division. In 2357 he enrolled into Starfleet Academy.

In 2362 in a chance meeting, he was introduced to him as Damien Drox. It was later determined in a DNA scan that they were indeed related, and he was his long lost brother. In 2366, he worked on an upgrade of the USS Republic (NCC-1371) that was to return it to partial service, and allowed to leave the Sol system for the first time in nearly 50 years. In 2367, the Battle of Wolf 359 put a halt to that project. He was reassigned to the Defiant class, specifically in the construction of the USS Valiant (NCC-74210). In 2368 he was brought up on charges of collusion for giving Triton Grull Enterprises federation contracts without official authorization. The charges were dropped, but his position as a Associate director was stripped, and he was reassigned to the Antares Shipyards. He would later transfer his chair at Triton Grull Enterprises to his brother Damien

But the outbreak of the Second Federation-Klingon War, followed by the Dominion War left resources for the project closed for the need for fighting ship construction. In 2373 after an appeal to the need of an improved Nova class he would assign it under the auspice of the Starfleet Marine Corps in which he transferred at the rank of Major. As the war progressed, he also designed several Starfleet Marines ground craft, as well as beefed up Danube class runabouts. By 2375 he found himself on the front lines trying out the Terapin class Ground Assault Vehicle.

During the convoy in 2380 he had a chance to meet Captain Vanessa Ann Yates where the beginnings of an intimate relationship began.

Deep space 10Edit

At Deep Space 10, Deragon was exposed to new creativity as well as problems. Sacrificing his R&D skills, he went out of his way to expose his Marines to the alien species they would face in the Delta Quadrant. The presence of the Malon, and Hirogen near the Starbase, he opted to station his troops on the Starships as well. Deragon operated from the USS Expedition (NCC-76277) which was one of the first Nova class starships to receive his earlier recommended upgrades. In 2382 he was marry Captain Vanessa Lucifel, and one year later his daughter Cassiopia was born. In 2384, he would lead a team to take control of an Hirogen hunter ship, that would reveal their plans to raid Deep Space 10 with an armada of 250 ships. They would foil their plans by planting a minefield making the raid impossible.
