The brainwashed crew of the USS Impulse were lead to beleive that Garek along with his wife M’Gret and son Kloroth died while under the Assassin's influence.
A year after his apparent death, when again the Assassins were active, a pod was discovered by the USS Impulse 73929B within the Risan system containing Garek Darpeg. Darpeg was revived and the crew infuenced to believe he was from a different timeline. Alternative Darpeg was given a field commission to Commander by Niko Elbraum, and given the Executive Officer position on the USS Impulse to replace Semaj Yarlig's who'd become unstable.
For the five months, Darpeg has acted with distinction and was made acting Captain. Several months later after Niko Elbraum was made an Admiral, Garek's rank was confirmed by the admiralty. Was part of the mission to destroy Mother, the computer in charge of the Assassins.
Discovered he was the real Garek Darpeg after Dr Yarlig's investigation. Was reunited with Dr M’Gret and now both trying to find their son Kloroth.
