Powell was a 24th century Human male. By the mid-2360s decade, Powell was serving as an operations division officer in Starfleet, assigned as security chief at the Federation embassy on the planet Kirlos.
Powell was handpicked by Ambassador Stephaleh n'Ehliarch out of a number of officers who were looking for planetside postings, after she assumed her post on Kirlos in the year 2363. Powell came to serve Stephaleh well, although she would have preferred someone with more experience.
In early 2366, Powell joined Stephaleh in the embassy's transporter room as they welcomed USS Enterprise-D officers, Lieutenant Commanders Data, Geordi La Forge and Lieutenant Worf ahead of their archaeological expedition alongside Professor Nassa Coleridge. (TNG novel: Doomsday World)
