==Biography==
Camping in the [[High Sierras]] in [[1967]], Starling came upon the crashed [[United Federation of Planets|Federation]] [[timeship]] ''[[Aeon]]'', abandoned by its lone occupant via an [[emergency transport]]; discovering the ship intact, he then began the process of examining it and learning about its capabilities and technologies. Starling did not physically scavenge the ship for its technologies, but used its databases and on-board hardware to extrapolate potential exploitable technologies that could be developed and sustained by both the economy and industries available. Between 1967 and [[1996]] Starling utilized and exploited the ''Aeon'' to the extent of his abilities, developing a technologically based corporate empire — [[Chronowerx]] — which spanned the planet.

Starling and Richard Nixon

Henry Starling was a Human industrialist who was largely responsible for the computer age of the late 20th century. Unknown to anyone at the time, Starling's innovations were based on his primitive understanding of the technology found aboard the 29th century timeship Aeon, which he appropriated after discovering the crashed vessel in 1967.

Cannibalizing the Aeon, Starling single-handedly advanced Human computer technology to the point where innovations such as the internet, laptops, and barcode readers were commonplace and taken for granted. Using the notoriety and money which came along with introducing these technologies, Starling constructed a corporate empire called "Chronowerx Industries."

BiographyEdit

Camping in the High Sierras in 1967, Starling came upon the crashed Federation timeship Aeon, abandoned by its pilot, Captain Braxton, via an emergency transport. Discovering the ship intact, Starling then began the process of examining it and learning about its capabilities and technologies. Between 1967 and 1996, Starling utilized and exploited the Aeon to the extent of his abilities, developing a technologically-based corporate empire which spanned the planet.

By 1969, Starling had introduced the very first isograted circuit. Every few years thereafter he released an equally revolutionary advance in computer technology, based on his understanding of 29th century technology. Starling's rising influence and power was evidenced by a photograph of him shaking hands with Richard M. Nixon, then President of the United States.

In late 1996, Starling planned to launch the Aeon to travel to the 29th century and collect technology to use as the basis for new commercial products. Before his scheduled launch, however, Starling was notified to the arrival of the USS Voyager by a graduate student in his employ, and began the process of learning all he could about the starship, which he believed to have been sent from the 29th century to retrieve the timeship from its wrongful place in the timeline. Captain Janeway and Commander Chakotay broke into Starling's office to retrieve information on Starling and his activities, and thereby learned about the Aeon and how Starling had inappropriately exploited its technology. Attempting to reason with Starling, Janeway informed him that, if he were to use the Aeon to travel into the future, he would cause a devastating temporal explosion which would destroy all of Earth's solar system. Starling refused to believe her, however, believing that she simply wanted to appropriate the timeship for herself. Starling was successful in thwarting their effort to transport the Aeon from his launch bay, and effectively turned the tables on Voyager's crew when he utilized their own transporter stream to access their computer database and download over twenty percent of their computer files. Amongst the data stolen from Voyager was The Doctor, whom Starling proceeded to torture for information about Voyager and her crew.
