Miles O’Brien has a long and distinguished career as a non-commissioned officer, spanning nearly three decades in Starfleet. In 2347, O’Brien served aboard the U.S.S. Rutledge when it responded to the Cardassian massacre at Setlik III. After repairing a balky transporter, O’Brien took an interest in transporter technology, which became a specialty assignment of his for the next 22 years. O’Brien was assigned as Transporter Chief to the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D in 2364, although he was occasionally assigned to other posts such as CON officer. After the Cardassians left Bajor in 2369, O’Brien and his family transferred from the Enterprise to Deep Space Nine, where he was promoted to Chief of Operations. His wife Keiko once operated a school on DS9, and now conducts botany research on Bajor.
