Ashok served as chief engineer of the USS Gibraltar (NCC-1859). He had been noted as something of an introvert, practically a pariah among a species known for their persistent effusiveness. The Bolian's work was steady, reliable and effective; but according to his supervisors' reviews, Ashok would never be one of those engineers elevated to the pantheon of "miracle workers".

Prior Starfleet serviceEdit
Ashok has served on two Miranda-class vessels.
Because of his experience with older vessels, Ashok was posted as chief engineer on the aging ship.
