Steven Mullen was a Human male, who served in the Federation Starfleet in its early years in the 22nd century.


By 2162 he held the rank of lieutenant commander and served as chief science officer of the Federation starship Essex under the command of Captain Bryce Shumar.

In October of that year the Essex made official first contact with the planet Sauria. As science officer, Mullen played a vital role in the initial examinations and contact procedures. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

In April, 2165, the Essex encountered a species called Carreon who tried to seize the ship in order to conquer the neighboring Deltan civilization. After the Starfleet crew thwarted their plans, Captain Shumar decided to track down the Deltans.

After a friendly first contact, the deltan government invited the crew for a visit to their planet Delta IV. Mullen accompanied First officer Caroline Paris and Armory officer Ahn Chung-hee to Ambhat City for a tour. The away team was overwhelmed by the Deltans powerful pheromones and emphatic abilities and their openness about sex. Mullen was barely able to resist their offers, but Paris and Ahn couldn't. They returned to the ship with serious psychological deformations, where Captain Shumar debriefed Mullen about what happened. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Uncertain Logic)

In October, during the Evacuation of Ardan IV, Mullen took over the operation of the tractor beam from Lieutenant Morgan Kelly and guided a damaged escape shuttle to Essex's shuttlebay while the armory officer operated the weapon systems. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)

By 2167, he was promoted to commander and became the first officer of the Essex. In that year, a group of disembodied prisoners tried to escape from their prison, a moon of Mab-Bu VI, onboard the Essex. In the process, she was was caught in a electromagnetic storm and crashed on the moon surface. He died with the rest of the crew. (TNG episode: "Power Play")
