[[Captain]] '''Cell''' (previously known as '''Daniel''') was an exiled [[Changeling]], from the Founders' [[homeworld]], who was given partial-omnipotent abilities, and was commanding officer of the {{uss|Phoenix-X|NCC-75948}} in the late [[24th century]]. He changed his own name in [[2379]] after being sent back to [[2344]], where he spent 35 years immobilized and left to his thoughts. ({{pnx}})

===The Gamma Quadrant===
 
In [[1879]], the young Changeling lived within the [[Great Link]] on the Founders' homeworld. In February of that year, a small group of [[El-Aurian|El Aurian]] transport ships had stumbled upon a [[Wormhole (El Aurian)|wormhole]] that led to the [[Gamma Quadrant]]. They had planned to find and colonize a planet in the Gamma Quadrant. As per standard procedure, the El Aurians sent out a scoutship to search ahead. Aboard it was an [[El-Aurian|El Aurian]] by the name of [[Daniel (El-Aurian)|Daniel]], who accidentally crash-landed his vessel onto the nearest planet to his location. Unbeknownst to him, the planet was the Founders' homeworld.

Guinan allowed the Changeling, Daniel, to carry on with the illusion of being her husband for safety: a thanks for warning her and attempting to save her people, and a sympathetic gesture for him being forced to leave his people. That same day, the El-Aurian ships evacuated through the wormhole through which they came, ending up in the Alpha Quadrant. ("[[The Links' Traitor|The Links Traitor]]")

===Early Starfleet service===
 
After Starfleet Academy, Daniel was discovered for being a Changeling by the secret organization, [[Section 31]]. Taking immediate action, Section 31 covered Daniel's tracks in order to gain him as an ally, deceiving him in saying it was for his own safety. With Section 31's involvement, Daniel's medical records were manipulated on an annual basis (and quite possibly, people around him too). ("[[The Links' Traitor]]", "[[Spider Agencies, Part II]]")

====Commanding the ''Phoenix''====
 
In [[2369]], Daniel took an on-again/off-again role as captain of the {{uss|Phoenix|NCC-65420}} when needed. Sometime between this year and [[2373]], the ''Phoenix'' had encountered Menchez commanding the [[IKS Bochnah|IKS ''Bochnah'']]. At the time, the ''Bochnah'' was under scrutiny by the [[Klingon Empire]] for Menchez's supposed intention of ruining relations with the Federation. Daniel set the records straight and cleared Menchez's name, and in thanks, Menchez gave his ship's cloaking device to the Admiral. ("[[The Links' Traitor]]")

In [[2374]], while traveling in the [[Star Trek: Phoenix-X (astronomy)#Tiloniam_system|Tiloniam system]], he encountered the Female Changeling once more, who beamed aboard his ship from a cloaked [[Dominion]] vessel. After another failed attempt to persuade Daniel to return, she beamed away. But almost immediately afterward, Daniel met [[Seifer|Night Gotens]] who was drifting nearby in a Starfleet shuttle from the {{uss|Xena|NCC-92382}}. Daniel was forced to save Night's life from sudden incoming [[Jem'Hadar]] warships. After a battle, the ''Phoenix'' was totaled (but salvaged - the ''Phoenix'' was seen again in "[[New Beginnings]]") and Daniel was given command of the {{uss|Phoenix-X|NCC-75948}}.

Due to the near-destruction of the ''Phoenix'', Daniel's rank was knocked down to Captain. But in truth, this was the wish of Admiral [[Theseus]] (working for [[Section 31]]). Theseus sent Captain [[Cid]] to devise the reasoning behind Daniel's demotion - which was the semi-publication of Daniel being a Changeling. ("[[The Tiloniam System]]", "[[The Links' Traitor|The Links Traitor]]", "[[The Tilonian System (PNX flashback)|The Tilonian System]]")

The USS ''Phoenix-X'' was a special vessel carrying [[transwarp drive]] for the [[X-Project]]. It was the perfect opportunity for Section 31 to use Daniel, someone who felt owed them, to take command of the ship. The project was officially deemed a failure, but instead of deconstructing the drive, the drive remained and its existence became known only to the ship's crew and Section 31.

Along with [[Commander]] Night Gotens from the USS ''Xena'', [[Ensign Dan]] was another officer assigned to the ''Phoenix-X'', to Daniel's dismay. From the beginning, Ensign Dan tested Daniel's patience and continued doing so during the entire run under Daniel's command.

In [[2377]], Daniel used the ''Phoenix-X''{{'}}s transwarp capabilities to assist the starship ''Voyager'' return home from the [[Delta Quadrant]]. Unfortunately, the consequences proved discomforting for the crew, as the ''Phoenix-X''{{'}}s secret of harboring an advanced engine was revealed. The resulting revelation led to a chain of events that saw the destruction of [[Starfleet Command]]. Daniel then decided to reset the timeline by going back in time and stopping themselves from saving ''Voyager''. This was successful, and Daniel restored the timeline, but in order to do so, had to destroy the past-''Phoenix-X''. ("[[Phoenix Restoration]]")

In [[2391]], Daniel, now self-renamed as '''Cell''', resigned from Starfleet after the secret of him being a changeling went public. He joined the [[Traveling Link]] in order to get away and simultaneously save them from a personality disorder caused by [[Diggs]]. ("[[The Needs of the Plenty]]")
 
In [[2390]], Daniel, now self-renamed as '''Cell''', had the ''Phoenix''-X generate an [[inverse tachyon pulse]] just to see what would happen. When two future ''Phoenix''-X vessels appeared, one from [[2410]] and one from [[2450]], Cell spoke to [[Oroku Seifer]] and was satisfied with the experiment.

In [[2374]], Daniel encountered [[Seifer|Night Gotens]] and Ensign Dan on a shuttle from the USS ''Xena'' in the Tiloniam system. He beamed them aboard when Jem'Hadar attacked, and it wasn't long before the ''Phoenix'' was totaled and all personnel rescued by the ''Xena''. Night Gotens transferred over to the Captain's command structure as [[first officer|executive officer]], while Daniel was given command of the USS ''Phoenix-X'' at [[Deep Space 9]] immediately after the incident. The two became close friends while serving together. ("[[The Tiloniam System]]", "[[The Links' Traitor]]")

The Captain would meet Shadow Flare again in late [[2379]], when RaeLuna came to Shadow Flare for help. In a simple questioning on the subject of RaeLuna, both the Captain and Shadow Flare erupted into a physical battle. Such a battle then impressed Shadow Flare, causing him to co-operate.
