|Personal History||Born and raised in the south of England John deferred entering Starfleet academy until he was already in his early twenties. While studying at the academy he was assigned to a routine training mission on a type II shuttlecraft. Several days into the mission an EPS manifold in the impulse control system overloaded, causing the cadets on board to attempt an emergency landing on a nearby class M moon. The shuttle came down in a thick forest canopy, causing severe structural damage and severely John and killing another two cadets. The rescue would take several days, during which John would remain pinned by the leg under a collapsed structural pylon on board the shuttle. When the cadets were finally rescued Stevens was transferred to sickbay where he underwent extensive reconstructive surgery on his left leg. John opted not to have the scar tissue repaired in order to pay tribute, in his own way, to his two friends who didn't survive. After recovering John continued his training at Starfleet Academy, eventually graduating and excepting his first posting on board the USS Alaska as a tactical officer.
Having struggled with the events of the accident for several years John finally started to come to terms with the loss of his colleagues. After serving on Alaska for 3 years, John transferred to the Arcadia as assistant Chief Tactical officer where he served for a further 4 years. The defining point of his time on the Arcadia came when Stevens was chosen to lead an away team to assist in repairs of a damaged freighter in the Galen system. While on board the away team came under fire and was forced to retreat to the predetermined transport coordinates. One of the members of the away team suffered a phaser blast to the abdomen and was incapacitated. Knowing the Arcadia would not be able to transport the injured crewmen due to high levels of radiation being emitted from the damaged warp plasma manifold on board the freighter, Stevens ordered the remaining members of the away team back to their ingress point and went back for his injured colleague. Stevens was able to reach the downed crewmen and fight his way to the freighters transporter room.
John now serves on board the USS Excalibur as Chief Tactical officer.
