|Born:||8 June 2361|
In ways, Hakim was destined to become a Starfleet officer. His father, Captain Marcus Hakim, was the commanding officer of the USS Cairo (NCC-42136). In addition, Captain Hakim often told his son stories about the great James T. Kirk, which inspired Manny to sign up for Starfleet after he graduated from High School.
His given name, Maninder, means "lord of the mind". ("Stranded")
Hakim's studies at the Academy focused on piloting and tactical analysis, hoping to follow in his father's footsteps.
Assigned to Horizon ProjectEdit
After a series of uncontrolled jumps, as a result of the damage from the Breen attack and some unusual anomalies, the Horizon appeared in the Treelan system, where the crew met a hospitable race. It was thanks to the ODN relay repair work by Hakim which ended the uncontrolled jumps. ("Stranded")
The Horizon was attacked by a massive hiveship of the Avkon Conglomeration. Six crewmen from an away team on PM45 were abducted and three were killed. Hakim piloted the Horizon during the battle. ("Conglomeration")
