His parents, Allan and Lilith Halloway, were both civilians on Earth. They lived easy lives. Eventually, when Michael graduated high school, he made the decision that he wanted to be a security officer in Starfleet. Unbeknownst to him, this track would lead him to something more.
He had spent his academy days flirting and barely getting by in his studies. He managed to pass his exams surprisingly well. After the Challenger, he was sent to the USS Cairo. Michael took no rest from his flirting and he actually spent many years there as a member of their crew. He managed to climb from the rank of Ensign to Lt. Commander. He also managed to fill the spot of Chief of Security for quite some time. During this time, he managed to bring himself pretty close to another member of the crew, Cassandra Rose McNeil. They had a very steady relationship. Of course it had its ups and downs, but nonetheless, it managed to end up in him proposing to her after discovering her with child.
With a fiance and fast track record to becoming the Cairo’s new XO, the Cairo was sent on (unbeknownst to them) one last mission. It seemed like a regular aide to a planet in great need. However, the worst happened. A transwarp conduit opened up in the system, out of it spewed a borg cube. The Cairo immediately sent word for help, however a good deal of the crew was planetside. Michael was stuck with a the majority of his security force on the planet. He managed to get most people to safety, however it was at the cost of his very soul. The borg had assimilated him, altering his body and mind to perform and serve for the collective. He was powerless to stop them.
About 3 years after that incident, the USS Nautilus--a Starfleet stealth ship--managed to capture Michael Halloway as a drone. Eventually, they were given clearance to bring him to Starbase 157, where he would underwent his transformation back into a human being. There were however a few borg components that were too dangerous to extract.
He now has some remnants of the borg eyepiece around his right eye. There is also a spider web-like component underneath his left ear. This particular piece has given him enhanced hearing. It’s not quite as enhanced as the hearing found in Shelaf’s syndrome, however it does come close to comparison.
After being reinstated as Lt. Commander on Starbase 157, he was then given the XO position on the USS Archimedes. During that time, he tried to find out what happened to his fiance and unborn son. No answers came to him.
He was eventually offered command of the USS Dresden, a maverick class vessel. It was surprisingly fitting for his tastes, and he graciously accepted. However, he yet again was faced with an enemy bent on destroying the ship. He managed to get the Dresden to safety with all of the crew’s help. He only hoped that this new threat would be dealt with, and quickly.
