Service history Edit

2371 Edit

Ashmore was a fan of macaroni and cheese and in 2371 he asked Neelix to make it for him. When the Talaxian tried to make the cheese he accidentally infected some of the ship's bio-neural gel packs with the bacteria he cultivated. When Tuvok trained four Maquis cadets with a run through the corridors, they passed Ashmore. (VOY: "Learning Curve")

2372 Edit

In 2372, Kes under Bothan influence was encountered by a vision of Neelix who claimed that Ashmore thought he was a Kazon and attacked him with a carving knife. (VOY: "Persistence of Vision")

2373 Edit

In 2373, during a confrontation with the Nerada, B'Elanna Torres ordered Ashmore to open up the emergency vent in plasma conduit G6 to reduce the pressure building there, while she attempted to reroute the plasma flow. (VOY: "Favorite Son")

In an alternate timeline, he was in the mess hall when Neelix brought a cake to celebrate the ninth birthday of Kes. (VOY: "Before and After")

2374 Edit

Ashmore visited the mess hall when a group of alien scientists, the Srivani, were on board the Voyager and conducted medical experiments on the crew. Seven of Nine, who was able to see the aliens through her modified ocular implant, witnessed Ashmore and other crewmembers in the mess hall being lab rats to the Srivani. Ashmore also passed Seven of Nine in a corridor while the former Borg drone witnessed the Srivani and was present in the mess hall when Neelix prepared scrambled eggs and broke down due to the experiments. (VOY: "Scientific Method")

He was among the crewmembers in the mess hall who received a letter from home that had been transmitted from the Alpha Quadrant over the Hirogen communications network. (VOY: "Hunters")

Ashmore was stationed in main engineering and armed with a phaser rifle when a member of Species 8472 attacked the engineering crew. He was wounded during the attack and treated in sickbay. (VOY: "Prey")

Later that year, he assisted Torres in holding Seven of Nine back after she had attacked Kovin. (VOY: "Retrospect")

Ashmore was working in engineering when Seven of Nine, B'Elanna Torres and Tom Paris gathered to receive instructions from Chakotay to protect the warp core of radiation. (VOY: "The Omega Directive")

He appeared briefly, working in engineering, when Harry Kim gave an inventory for take to Torres. (VOY: "Once Upon a Time")

He accompanied another crewmember on the holodeck when The Doctor did a photo exhibition. (VOY: "Nothing Human")

Also in 2375, a biomimetic copy of Ashmore was working in engineering aboard the Silver Blood copy of the Voyager. This copy was later among the patients in sickbay treated by The Doctor. (VOY: "Course: Oblivion")

Ashmore managed a force field in engineering when the crew rescued a Series 5 long-range tactical armor unit that had malfunctioned. (VOY: "Warhead")

2376 Edit

Ashmore was present, when several members of unknown species avoided Seven of Nine in a corridor. (VOY: "Survival Instinct")

Ashmore was one of the Starfleet officers who accompanied Captain Janeway on her shore leave in 2377. He manned a station aboard the Delta Flyer when Janeway was informed by Commander Chakotay, that Seven of Nine and Tuvok were kidnapped by Penk. (VOY: "Tsunkatse")

Ashmore passed Harry Kim and Tom Paris in a corridor shortly before the hologram of Reginald Barclay was activated aboard the Voyager. (VOY: "Inside Man")
