[[Camping]] in the [[High Sierras]] in 1967, Starling came upon the crashed [[Federation]] timeship ''Aeon'', abandoned by its [[pilot]], {{Captain}} [[Braxton]], via an [[emergency transport]]. Discovering the ship intact, Starling then began the process of examining it and learning about its capabilities and [[technology|technologies]]. Between 1967 and [[1996]], Starling utilized and exploited the ''Aeon'' to the extent of his abilities, developing a technologically-based corporate empire which spanned the planet.

[[Camping]] in the [[High Sierras]] in 1967, Starling came upon the crashed [[Federation]] timeship ''Aeon'', abandoned by its [[pilot]], {{dis|Captain|rank}} [[Braxton]], via an [[emergency transport]]. Discovering the ship intact, Starling then began the process of examining it and learning about its capabilities and [[technology|technologies]]. Between 1967 and [[1996]], Starling utilized and exploited the ''Aeon'' to the extent of his abilities, developing a technologically-based corporate empire which spanned the planet.
   
 
By [[1969]], Starling had introduced the very first [[isograted circuit]]. Every few years thereafter he released an equally revolutionary advance in [[Computer terminology|computer technology]], based on his understanding of 29th century technology. Starling's rising influence and power was evidenced by a photograph of him shaking hands with [[Richard M. Nixon]], then [[President of the United States]].

Starling's rising influence and power was evidenced by a photograph of him shaking hands with [[Richard M. Nixon]], then [[President of the United States]].
   
In late [[1996]], Starling planned to launch the ''Aeon'' to travel to the 29th century and collect technology to use as the basis for new commercial products. Before his scheduled launch, however, Starling was notified to the arrival of the {{USS|Voyager}} by [[Rain Robinson|a graduate student]] in his employ, and began the process of learning all he could about the [[starship]], which he believed to have been sent from the 29th century to retrieve the timeship from its wrongful place in the [[timeline]]. {{Captain}} [[Kathryn Janeway|Janeway]] and [[Commander]] [[Chakotay]] broke into Starling's office to retrieve information on Starling and his activities, and thereby learned about the ''Aeon'' and how Starling had inappropriately exploited its technology. Attempting to reason with Starling, Janeway informed him that, if he were to use the ''Aeon'' to travel into the future, he would cause a devastating [[temporal explosion]] which would destroy all of [[Sol system|Earth's solar system]]. Starling refused to believe her, however, believing that she simply wanted to appropriate the timeship for herself. Starling was successful in thwarting their effort to transport the ''Aeon'' from his [[launch bay]], and effectively turned the tables on ''Voyager''{{'}}s crew when he utilized their own transporter stream to access their computer database and download over twenty percent of their computer files. Amongst the data stolen from ''Voyager'' was [[The Doctor]], whom Starling proceeded to torture for information about ''Voyager'' and her crew using his access to The Doctor's program to create the 'illusion' of pain by accessing The Doctor's tactile response sensors.
