Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Nothing is known about Pirk's background. He is presumed to be born on Earth. At some point in life, he enrolled into P-Fleet, and in 2363, somehow became captain of the USS Kickstart without undergoing any P-Fleet captain training.

P-Fleet service Edit

Pirk was aboard the Kickstart, orbiting Mynos 3, when he received a distress call from the captain of USS Excessive. Answering the call, Pirk ordered that Kickstart be taken to Earth, where he commanded a retaliation against the Plingon invaders that was followed an almost flawless victory. Some time later, he was ordered to fly to Fibula Sector, near Plingon space, to eliminate any enemies there. Once there, his ship engaged three Plingon Battlebruisers, destroying two with its weapons, and one by tactical - albeit sluggish - use of the rear sucking beam. This led to him loosing the Kickstart and having to evacuate on board space-sleds. Eventually, the late Kickstart's crew reached a P-Fleet space station where it boarded the CPP Kickstart-2.

For two years, Pirk and his crew had to run errands, getting used to the new controls. A few days after "Moondate 12.Delta-by-Pie-are-square" - when the Kickstart accidentally destroyed the P-Fleet Sparrow-class cruiser "The Relevant" - Command ordered Pirk to do reconnaissance of a suspected Romuclan base in the Vega system. After learning of the Romuclans' plan to attack P-Fleet's outpost in the Gamma Sector, Pirk reported his finds to Command, and was ordered to defend the station at all costs. Despite the heavy loses on both sides, Pirk emerged victorious, and was promoted to the rank of Admiral.

Some time after the Gamma Sector battle, Pirk was sent on a diplomatic mission to forge an alliance with the mysterious Zarquon. The latter issued that he compete against the other alliance-seeking races to find a powerful artefact. Despite winning the comptetion, Pirk lost the the artefact - which turned out to be a scepter - to Hans Duo, who sent the traitorous former P-Fleet captain Hummer to retrieve it. For losing the scepter, and for subsequently starting a war with the Zarquon, Pirk was once again demoted to the rank of Captain.

A week later, he was ordered to assist in the war against the Zarquon, but decided to make a stop on Earth as the refitted Kickstart's mainframe needed a crack. Being bored, and off-duty, Pirk went to the halludeck to entertain himself, but got stuck in the simulation because of a surprise attack by the Romuclans. Finally freeing himself, he returned to his post just some five minutes before his new shift began.
