No one knows the exact time that Gideon and Marek were born. On November 3 2323 just outside the Romulan Neutral Zone the USS Exeter was on routine patrol when they encountered a massive Ion storm They were making it though with minimal difficulty when they spotted a ship fleeing the Neutral Zone with four life forms. It was pursued by a Romulan War Bird. They continued to fire on the ship severely damaging it. Captain Benjamin Gates of the Exeter put the Exeter between the Romulan ship and the run about and only then did the ship turn aside.
Just before the smaller ship was destroyed the four life forms were transported to the Exeter. The pilot was DOA and the mother Rachel was in bad shape. She lasted enough to identify her two sons, identical twins, to the ship’s crew as Gideon and Marek. She died soon after that without revealing anything more.
The twin boys grew up together on the ship as Star Fleet brats. Pretty much the whole crew took them under their wings. The boys were identical in appearance, but not so much in personality. Merek was always interested in how the ship ran an operated, he would often be cought by security for getting lost inside the jefferys tube.
Merek was always getting into troble by his mischievous brother pranks that were always annoying. Merek knew there was something different about his brother, but he never realized what it was until he came out to him when they were 16. After he told him Merek reassured him that things between them would not change.
But things did change. Merek started to become more protective of his brother and often worried that he would get pressured into doing something that he didnt feel comfortable with.
Eventually Merek and his brother settled down and both boys joined Star Fleet. Since they did not know their real last name they decided to call themselves Exeter.
Merek attended the Academy where he specialized in engineering, and apt career choice because when he was younger he was always facinated by how starships operate. He also got his certifications as a damege control specialist.
During his more than 40 years in Star Fleet he served both on ships and star bases. He and his brother sometimes even served together from time to time. They have both just retired and see Oed V as a great opportunity.
Like his twin he was also involed with multiple partners and ofthe felt gay thought and pressured romantic relationships with both sexes. But unlike his brother he was more into women.
Both men have limited shape-shifting ability, though nobody is really sure how they developed it.
