Jacobs's first assignment was as flight controller aboard the USS Saratoga until 2366, when he was promoted to second officer of the USS Malinche. He met Stovik at a New Year's Eve party on Earth, and the two started to date when they met again on the USS Fremont.
During a mission to stop Michael Eddington, Jacobs's best friend and the Malinche's first officer, Commander Timothy Archer, was paralyzed during a Maquis attack. (Star Trek: Tales of Discovery: "Relationships of Convenience") After Archer was unable to continue as first officer, Jacobs was offered the position.
