|Esreck in 2410.|
Lieutenant Commander Esreck was the first officer of the Federation starship USS Hijinx in the late 24th and early 25th century. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X, Star Trek Online: Unofficial Literary Challenge)
In 2374, Esreck was invited to a "meet & greet" between all the captain's and first officers of what would later be dubbed Task Force Epsilon. Before the room was taken hostage, he was having a conversation with Ensign Dan, who was revealing something that Captain Daniel did "all the time". ("The Bajoran Trove", "Into Harshness")
Sometime before 2406, Esreck and the crew of the Hijinx were caught in a massive molecular reversion field, intermixed with an ion storm, the result of which caused him and everyone involved to undergo a reduction in age. The trauma from the accident caused all included to temporarily lose years of memories. ("Delta Recruit")
- Like Captain Reynolds, it is likely he retook Starfleet Academy, aligning with events in Star Trek Online.
In 2410, when virus-hologram Mayhem was given false-programmed orders to join the crew of the Hijinx, Esreck was caught off guard, and delayed, while carrying an arm-full of snacks onto the Bridge as Reynolds ordered him to lock out the main computer. ("Someone to Remember Them By")
- Several Captains and their crew, from Star Trek: Phoenix-X, share the same experiences from the video game missions of Star Trek Online. It is a soft-break of the fourth wall that they all are semi-conscious of this whilst interacting with each other. The only differing experiences between Captains and crew are depicted through in-story from the Star Trek Online: Literary and Unofficial Literary Challenges.
