The Terra Nova incident
In 2381, during the Borg invasion Vice Admiral Helena Cain ordered Captain Typhuss James Kira to remove the colonists on Terra Nova by force but Typhuss refused the order saying he wasn't going to point phasers at their heads. Admiral Cain gave Commander Ellis temporary command of the Intrepid and ordered him to get the Terra Nova colonists off the planet by any means. Commander Ellis mutinied against Captain Kira and removed him from command. Typhuss and the others were taken to cargo bay 2.
The Intrepid set a course for Terra Nova. Later the Intrepid engaged the Enterprise in obrit of Terra Nova. Typhuss along with Colonel Samantha Carter and Major Sascha Money escaped from cargo bay 2. Typhuss and Lieutenant Curtis took back control of the bridge and stunned Commander Ellis.
The Intrepid powered down its weapons and stopped attacking the Enterprise. John Martin and Typhuss got the colonists off Terra Nova without using force. Later Typhuss made Colonel Carter acting first officer after the incident. (Star Trek: The New Generation episode: "Terra Nova")
Leaving the Intrepid
In 2383, Ellis was replaced by Commander Martin Madden as first officer of the USS Intrepid-A.
Madden arrived on the bridge just as Ellis was leaving. Madden, intent on making a good first impression with his new commanding officer, Typhuss James Kira, requested advice from Ellis regarding Kira's attitudes. Sensing the opportunity for a good joke, Ellis misinformed his replacement, telling him that Kira was very laid back and preferred to be called "Typhuss". Madden took Ellis's advice to heart, and only after receiving a stare from Kira as a response did he realize that Ellis was "pulling his leg." (Star Trek: The New Generation episode: "The New first officer")
In 2388, Ellis hit Captain Kira after he asked Kira why he didn't like him. Later Ellis was court martialed for his actions and kicked out of Starfleet.
