History and background
In 2270, Jameson served a tour as third-shift science officer on the bridge along with Lieutenant Tanaka at the con, communications officer Granger, and helmsman Woida. Jameson called Kirk to the bridge when five Hoshan vessels approached the debris of a starship that had self destructed after attacking the Enterprise. For a short while, manipulative civilian bureaucrat Jason Crandall thought he'd found a promising ally in Jameson. (TOS novel: Chain of Attack)
Later that year, while serving as a security officer, he joined the crew of the shuttlecraft Armstrong, which was launched to explore the surface of Vehtora IV. However, a planetary repeller screen disabled the ship's power, and it crashed on the surface. A tribe of humanoid Xhosa emerged from the jungle, firing arrows at the Starfleet crew and the ship. The arrows killed Jameson and injured Pavel Chekov. (TOS - Unlimited comic: "As Flies to Wanton Boys")
