Zak Kebron was a male Brikar Starfleet Officer serving in the late 24th century. He was born on planet Brikar Prime as just simply Zak within the Clan Kebron to Mol Zebron and Tel Zebron. Kebron served on the USS Ranger under Captain Yuri Danilov and on two starships Excalibur, the NCC-26517 and the NCC-26517-A, under Captain Mackenzie Calhoun.


Starfleet Academy

Kebron entered Starfleet Academy in 2357, as only the third Brikar to be accepted to that institution. Upon arrival at the Academy campus in San Francisco, but before checking in, Kebron picked a fight with the Academy's first Klingon recruit, Worf Rozhenko.

Kebron's people had a history of conflict with the Klingon Empire, and he considered all Klingons to be cold blooded killers. The Academy dealt with this situation by making Kebron and Worf roommates, forcing them to work out their differences. (TNG Starfleet Academy (YA Book Series) #1: Worf's First Adventure)

Cadet Kebron

Kebron's squadron (which consisted of Worf, Soleta of Vulcan, and humans Mark McHenry and Tania Tobias) were part of an Academy attachment that was on the planet Dantar IV when the colony was attacked by the Brikar, who had briefly declared war on the Federation. (TNG Starfleet Academy (YA Book Series) #2: Line of Fire, #3: Survival)

Kebron eventually graduated, becoming the first Brikar in Starfleet. (NF - No Limits short story: "Waiting for G'Doh, or, How I Learned to Stop Moving and Hate People")

The claim that Kebron was the first Brikar in Starfleet comes from the story introduction for "Waiting for G'Doh," and not from the actual text of any story.



The USS Ranger

In 2361, Kebron was to the USS Ranger as a security officer under Chief of security Lieutenant commander Raka. Kebron went undercover as a park statue on the planet Iban in order to apprehend a Federation bureaucrat who was selling military secrets to the Cardassian Union. Although that mission didn't go as planned, Kebron managed to save the life of Iban Prime Minister Niad from an assassination attempt. (New Frontier short story, "Waiting For G'Doh" from the anthology No Limits.)

The USS Excalibur

In 2373, Kebron became the Security and Tactical officer aboard the USS Excalibur (NCC-26517) under Captain Mackenzie Calhoun. The Excaliburs mission was to provide aid, comfort and stability to the residents of Sector 221-G, formerly known as the Thallonian Empire. Also on the Excalibur were his Academy classmates, Soleta and Mark McHenry.

Kebron got off on the wrong foot with Thallonian "Ambassador" Si Cwan after Cwan stowed away onboard the Excalibur without Kebron's knowledge. However, Kebron's animosity toward Cwan did not deter him from defending Cwan, whose enemies attempted to assassinate him. (New Frontier novels: Into the Void, The Two-Front War, End Game)

Kebron served as the Excalibur's security chief until the vessel's destruction early in the year 2376.

Shortly after the destruction of the Excalibur, Kebron and McHenry went on an undercover assignment on the planet Liten, where they had an encounter with the entity known as Q. It was here that Kebron came to the realization that McHenry was hiding something about his true nature. Kebron began an intense investigation of his Academy friend, who turned out to be a blood relative of the Being known as Apollo. (New Frontier novels: Dark Allies, Requiem, Being Human)

The Excalibur-A

Being Human.

When the Excalibur-A launched in mid-2376, Kebron resumed his post as ship's Chief of security. (New Frontier: novel Excalibur: Restoration, Gateways novel: Cold Wars)

Shortly after the launch of the ship, Kebron started to under go a metamorphosis in which large portions of his rock-like skin began to peel away, eventually revealing a new 'skin' underneath. This was part of the Brikar maturation process. Kebron described it as moving past adolescence and into adulthood. The old surly, taciturn Kebron was replaced by a friendly and talkative Kebron. (New Frontier: novels Being Human, Gods Above)

Kebron continued to serve as the new Excalibur's security chief throughout the brief war with the Selelvians and the Tholian Assembly. By 2379, Kebron was doing double-duty as both security chief, and Head Counselor.

He was on board the Excalibur in late 2379, when the ship was temporarily swept into the gelatinous realm of the race known as the Teuthis. (New Frontier: novels After the Fall, Being Human)


Kebron eventually retired from Starfleet, returned home to Brikar and started a family. In the year 2525, Kebron's son, Cal, was given an assignment by his school Mentor to study "the glories of war" by interviewing his father about his experiences in the Dominion War. Kebron instead gave his son a lesson about the waste, pain, and futility of war, much to the dismay of Cal's Mentor. (New Frontier short story, "Stone Cold Truths" from the anthology Tales of the Dominion War.)

Lieutenant Zak Kebron was a Brikar male born in the 24th century, and the third of his species to join Starfleet. He attended Starfleet Academy with Worf, Mark McHenry, and Soleta. He later served aboard the USS Excalibur and USS Excalibur-A as security chief under Captain Mackenzie Calhoun. (TNG Young Adult novel: Worf's First Adventure; Star Trek: New Frontier)

Note that later New Frontier novels stated that Kebron was the first Brikar in Starfleet, contradicting Worf's First Adventure.

In the Pendragon timeline, after the Excalibur's destruction in the Battle of Sector 001, Kebron served under Captain Elizabeth Shelby on the USS Exeter, and in 2377, followed her to the USS Magellan. (Star Trek: Pendragon)
