Icheb in 2409
Icheb was born on the Brunali homeworld in the latter half of the 24th century. Prior to 2376, Icheb's people sacrificed him to the Borg, in order to halt the Collective's attacks on their world. In doing so, Icheb was assimilated, and became one with the Collective, and was immediately placed in a maturation chamber due to his immaturity.
Return to EarthEdit
When the USS Voyager returned to the Alpha Quadrant in 2378 and a Borg nano-virus erupted on Earth, Icheb (along with Seven of Nine) was taken into custody by Starfleet Security. During this time, he was prevented from regenerating normally and his Brunali physiology re-asserted itself. Shortly afterward, his remaining Borg implants were surgically removed, and he enrolled in Starfleet Academy. (VOY novel: Homecoming)
Icheb was admitted into Starfleet Academy a semester after Voyager's return to Federation space.
In late 2381, Icheb was recruited by Chakotay to participate in a ritual known as Pacrathar through which Icheb, Chakotay, and Seven would be joined mentally. The ritual was intended to draw Seven out of a comatose-like state which she had entered following the trauma of the Caeliar absorption of the Borg and the death of her Aunt Irene. The ritual worked and Seven was rescued from the psychological break, thanking Icheb and asking him to watch over Naomi Wildman during Seven's absence on Earth. (VOY novel: Unworthy)
Icheb was mentioned in a letter from Commander Naomi Wildman, sent on Stardate 85563.8 (July 25, 2408) to her mother Samantha. Naomi received command of Deep Space Station K-7 and noted she had confidence in her crew, which included Lieutenant Commander Icheb as first officer. (STO novel: The Needs of the Many)
In an alternate timeline created when Chakotay traveled to the future due to his body being charged with chroniton particles, Icheb was still on Voyager, and had been earned a commission as a lieutenant commander in the command division by 2394. Icheb and Lieutenant Naomi helped Chakotay return to his own time. (VOY episode: "Shattered")
