Meredith enlisted in Starfleet Academy immediately after completing secondary education, and graduated five and a half years later, 33rd in his class.
He was the highest rankling crew member to survive a catastrophic failure in the structural integrity fields of the USS Miramar that killed the entire command crew. Then-Lieutenant Meredith took command of the ship's auxillary bridge and brought it safely back to Starbase 34.
Three years he was put in command of the diplomatic vessel USS Mandela.
Meredith's command staff openly tease him for his obsession with the career of James Kirk.
