Starfleet career[]

USS Lexington[]

Branson was offered a post as tactical officer and security officer of the USS Cairo. He turned down the offer out of loyalty to his then-current Captain Roger Stearns, and because he was uncomfortable with the commanding officer of the Cairo.

While fighting in the Federation-Cardassian War Branson was first officer on board the New Orleans-class USS Lexington under the command of Captain Roger Stearns on the ship he made some really good friends like William Parmenter he even met chief petty officer Miles O'Brien.

When the Lexington and her battlegroup were ambushed by a battlegroup of Cardassian warships that took out the entire fleet and left the Lexington heavily damaged, Captain Stearns was killed in the ambush when a support beam struck him and pinned him to the bulkhead killing him forcing Commander Branson to take command of the ship coming up with a plan to get the large Cardassian cruiser. By mining the asteroid field and they destroyed the cruiser but the Lexington had suffered too much damage to her engine core forcing Commander Branson to order all hands to abandon ship.

After the destruction of the Lexington Martin and half of the surviving crew were taken on different ships, as he was posted to the USS Kansas commanded by Captain Jane Mitchell, and kept fighting in the war.

Commander Branson chose reassignment and it was placed to the one ship he knew would take him the Sovereign-class ship USS Enterprise-E.
