In 2266, Johnson was a young security officer freshly assigned to the Enterprise. He was part of a large security detachment sent to rescue 60 colonists taken hostage by Orion pirates on the planet 1324-IV. The pirates' transport was armed with a large phaser cannon, and although Jon Anderson attempted to destroy the weapon with phaser fire, it blasted some of the colony's transports. Adam Jawer was partially caught in the blast and saw Johnson get killed. (TOS - Errand of Vengeance novel: The Edge of the Sword)
