Service history and disposition
In the late 2370s, Beckett Mariner served on the USS Quito. Beckett flaunted Starfleet protocol, despite knowing it by heart, and frequently ended up in the brig, which she enjoyed. She was also demoted.
The Quito established first contact with the Galardonians of the capital planet, and their Galardonian High Council. Beckett learned about the living condition of Galardonian farmers during this mission.
About a year later, on stardate 57436.2 in 2380, Admiral Mariner was called by Freeman after one of her ensigns, Brad Boimler, failed to rat Beckett out during an away mission for second contact with the Galadonians. Freeman wanted Mariner to send Beckett back to the Quito, which he refused. (LD episode: "Second Contact")
