Early life and careerEdit
The Kongo missionsEdit
His command abilities surfaced during the Tangaro incident, an Academy survival training mission that turned to disaster when the Tressaurians fired on the transport. Garrovick was evacuated via lifeboat along and became stranded on the uncharted planet Tangaro. As the senior surviving cadet, Garrovick led the survivors, both Star Fleet Academy cadets and civilians, for two years until Star Fleet found them. It was during this time that his girlfriend Beth left him, assuming that he had died during the attack. Starfleet brass refer to Garrovick as "Quince", a nickname introduced by Captain Kosnett of the USS Kongo. Commander Paul Cutty, who served aboard the Kongo, still refers to Garrovick with this moniker.
The Exeter missionsEdit
Garrovick took command of the USS Exeter at the age of 37, following the demise of several veteran Starfleet captains. Garrovick initially requested Commander Cutty for the first officer's position aboard Exeter, but Starfleet Command insisted that Jo Harris fill that seat. Over the course of several missions with Commander Harris, Garrovick came to appreciate the wisdom of Starfleet's decision in this matter.
