Personal History Lt. Hannibal Owens was born January 27, 2358 to Tyrone and Moira Owens on the established Vega Colony. He is the middle child of three brothers all named after famous conquerors of earth. Tyrone wanted his sons to accomplish great things and rise above the simple life of a trader, hence the names. Tyrone and Moira moved around with their sons on the merchant ship Risa Shoreline, selling whatever they could to get by. Tyrone often held resentment toward the Federation out of a perceived lack of support during border and trade disputes. He would often take his resentment out on his family, leaving physical and emotional scars on his wife and children and making Hannibal resent him for many years.

Hannibal's life on the frontier was marked by many hardships. He took to reading old western novels as a source of comfort and grew up wanting to be a lawman like many of the heroes from those books. He began practicing martial arts with his brothers at the behest of his mother, who wanted her boys to learn how to protect themselves due to some of the dangerous environs that their father's work placed them in.

Those dangers would be realized when Tyrone's double dealings and swindling caught up with the family when Hannibal was 14. The Risa Shoreline came under attack from Romulans that had purchased shoddy materials from Tyrone. They boarded the ship and immediately killed Tyrone for his treachery. Moira intervened when the Romulans moved to kill the young boys as retribution, offering her life for theirs. The Romulans accepted and killed Moira after she put her boys in an escape pod. The pod was eventually picked up by a passing Starfleet ship and the boys were sent to live with their grandparents who had retired to the Hunan Province of China. There, Hannibal would become greatly influenced by Asian culture from all the countries around that region of the world, and continuing his ambition to be a lawman. Upon graduating high school, he worked to apply to Starfleet Academy and join its Security and Advanced Tactical Training programs. He excelled in his studies and graduated in 2280 as a commissioned Starfleet Security Officer with a specialization in Fugitive Retrieval and Law Enforcement.

His first posting was a long-term assignment aboard the venerable Steamrunner-class USS Yellow Jacket, a patrol escort that was stationed near the Badlands. He got his first taste of action when the ship was sent to deal with a Cardassian extremist group known as the True Way. The Yellow Jacket helped secure vital colonies and outposts, with Hannibal doing his part to track down the dangerous people leading the enemy organization. He managed to deduce the identity of one True Way cell's enigmatic leader and bring him to justice, which earned him a promotion and commendation in 2283.

He was reassigned to Deep Space 11 in 2385, continuing to serve at his best in Security. Starfleet took notice of his exceptional service record and transferred him to the USS Cochrane in 2386. He has served as Chief of Security ever since.
