Personal History Damon Wood was born on the planet Earth on the 8th of April 2351 the only child of Eric and Stephanie White, Eric owned his own freighter which travelled to many different parts of the known galaxy, Stephanie worked for Starfleet as a Nurse.

In 2357 Eric and Damon were in the Beta Quadrant at the behest of Starfleet on a mission to ferry supplies and personnel to a scientific outpost, when the freighter was attacked by the Borg, all personnel on board including Damon aged 6 were assimilated.

During the period 2357-62 Damon Wood was in a Borg Maturation Chamber as he evolved from a child of Species 5618 into an adult drone of Species 5618, once 17 cycles had elapsed it emerged from the chamber he was fully Borg, a mindless zombie enslaved to the Hive Mind.

Five of Eight as it was known served the Collective from 2362 until 2382 when it was severed from the Collective, when the Borg Probe it was assigned to was destroyed whilst Five of Eight was on the surface of a planet searching for the origins of a distress beacon.

Sometime between 2382 and 2387 Five of Eight joined a group known as the Vulture, for reasons known only to the Vulture they left Five of Eight as it was when they 'rescued' it, the only difference was Five of Eight was no longer part of the Collective.

Somewhere along the journey with the Vulture Five of Eight found that it was unable to work for the Vulture, and left their ranks and fell in with the crew of the IRW Ourainvassa.
