Michael Eddington

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Michael Eddington1
Species : Humans
Associated with : Deep Space Nine

A Starfleet security officer, Eddington was assigned to Deep Space Nine in 2371 after Starfleet became concerned with Odo’s reluctance to follow Starfleet operating procedures.1 Eddington was apparently a loyal Starfleet officer; when Commander Sisko violated orders to take the Defiant into the Gamma Quadrant in order to rescue Odo and Garak from the Tal’Shiar/Obsidian Order fleet which was attacking the Founder’s home world, Eddington obeyed orders to sabotage the ship’s cloaking device so as to force it to return home. However, when O’Brien managed to repair the device Eddington gave Sisko his word that he would make no further attempt to stop the mission, and participated fully in the rescue.2

In 2372 Eddington defected to the Maquis terrorist organisation. He hijacked a shipment of industrial replicators which had been bound for Cardassia to assist in rebuilding after the war with the Klingons.3 Sisko was given the task of hunting Eddington down and capturing him, but he enjoyed little success at this and by 2373 Eddington was still at large and leading the Maquis. Starfleet assigned the mission of capturing him to Captain Sanders of the USS Malinche, but he had no more success. When Eddington embarked on a campaign of poisoning the atmosphere of Cardassian colony worlds within the de-militarised zone, Captain Sisko detonated a pair trilithium-enhanced warheads in the atmosphere of Solossos III, a Maquis colony world, rendering it uninhabitable for decades to come. Sisko threatened to destroy every colony in the de-militarised zone unless Eddington agreed to hand over the remaining biogenic weapons and surrender himself.4

In 2373, Starfleet intercepted a communication indicating that the Maquis had armed a group of cloaked missiles which would launch a devastating attack against Cardassia in reprisal for the near-annihilation of the Maquis by the Jem’Hadar. Sisko and Eddington embarked on a mission to stop the missiles, but it transpired that this was simply a Maquis ruse which was designed to allow Eddington to rescue the remaining Maquis survivors from Athos IV. Eddington fell back to cover the escape of the survivors, who included his wife Rebecca Sullivan. He was hit by fire from Jem'Hadar soldiers and killed.5
