Icheb was a Brunali xB male. He was liberated from the Borg Collective in the year 2376 by the crew of the Federation Starfleet starship USS Voyager. (VOY episode: "Collective")

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Icheb was born on the Brunali homeworld in the latter half of the 24th century. Prior to 2376, Icheb's people sacrificed him to the Borg, in order to halt the Collective's attacks on their world. In doing so, Icheb was assimilated, and became one with the Collective, and was immediately placed in a maturation chamber due to his immaturity.

Return to Earth[edit | edit source]

When the USS Voyager returned to the Alpha Quadrant in 2378 and a Borg nano-virus erupted on Earth, Icheb (along with Seven of Nine) was taken into custody by Starfleet Security. During this time, he was prevented from regenerating normally and his Brunali physiology re-asserted itself. Shortly afterward, his remaining Borg implants were surgically removed, and he enrolled in Starfleet Academy. (VOY novel: Homecoming)

Starfleet Academy[edit | edit source]

Icheb was admitted into Starfleet Academy a semester after Voyager's return to Federation space.

In 2378, Icheb watched over Naomi Wildman as she herself began at the Academy. (VOY novel: Unworthy)

Icheb was in his fourth and final year at the Academy by September 2381. (VOY novel: The Eternal Tide)

Caeliar destiny[edit | edit source]

In late 2381, Icheb was recruited by Chakotay to participate in a ritual known as Pacrathar through which Icheb, Chakotay, and Seven would be joined mentally. The ritual was intended to draw Seven out of a comatose-like state which she had entered following the trauma of the Caeliar absorption of the Borg into their gestalt and the death of her Aunt Irene Hansen. The ritual worked and Seven was rescued from the psychological break, thanking Icheb and asking him to watch over Naomi during Seven's absence from Earth. (VOY novel: Unworthy)

Starfleet commission[edit | edit source]

In 2382, Fleet Admiral Leonard James Akaar promoted Icheb to the rank of Ensign and assigned him to the Project Full Circle fleet. (VOY novel: Atonement)

Ensign Icheb served as personal assistant to fleet chief engineer B'Elanna Torres. When she became pregnant, he took over more of her responsibilities. Later that year, USS Vesta chief engineer Phinnegan Bryce requested to involve Icheb in a special engineering project. Commander Malcolm Roach was aware of the blossoming romance between Icheb and Bryce, but Lieutenant Bryce convinced his superior officer that the reasons to include Icheb were practical in nature. (VOY novel: Architects of Infinity)

By 2385, Icheb had been adopted by Annika Hansen and was continuing his course work at Starfleet Academy. (STO website: The Path to 2409)

Death at Vergessen[edit | edit source]

In 2386, Icheb was kidnapped and taken to Vergessen, where a surgeon hired by Bjayzl harvested his Borg parts while he was still alive. Seven of Nine arrived on Vergessen, killed the surgeon but arrived too late to save Icheb. She euthanized Icheb, at his insistence. (PIC episode: "Stardust City Rag")

25th century[edit | edit source]

Icheb was mentioned in a letter from Commander Naomi Wildman, sent on stardate 85563.8 (July 25, 2408) to her mother Samantha Wildman. Naomi received command of Deep Space Station K-7 and noted she had confidence in her crew, which included Lieutenant Commander Icheb as first officer. (STO novel: The Needs of the Many)

This letter was published, with Naomi and Samantha's consent, in Jake Sisko's anthology The Needs of the Many in 2423. (STO novel: The Needs of the Many)

By 2409, Icheb still held the rank of Lieutenant Commander and remained first officer of Deep Space Station K-7. (STO mission: "Neutral Zone Diplomacy")

On 5 March, 2020, following Icheb's death on Star Trek: Picard, his character was removed from Star Trek Online and replaced with a Vulcan NPC.

Alternate realities[edit | edit source]

Icheb in an alternate timeline

In an alternate timeline created when Chakotay traveled to the future due to his body being charged with chroniton particles, Icheb was still on Voyager, and had been given a commission as a Lieutenant Commander in the command division by 2394. Icheb and Lieutenant Naomi Wildman helped Chakotay return to his own time. (VOY episode: "Shattered")

In a timeline affected by the Q Continuum's temporal anomaly crisis, versions of that lieutenant commander, and of Icheb from 2377, appeared in local space around 2380 and joined Starfleet to help resolve the crisis and related events. (ST video game: Timelines)
