Aboard the Excelsior
Started his service aboard the Excelsior in 2377 as an Ensign. He became quite a regular visitor to sickbay due to his repeated use of the holodeck for snowboarding. He needed to report to sickbay three times in one month alone. (HF 1.02 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 2")
He also was on duty when the Excelsior detected an energy surge of an unusual nature in then-Commodore Knapp's quarters aboard Deep Space 12. This marks the first time that Starfleet sensor equipment has detected the appearance of a Q within their sensory range - though it is speculated now that Q may have deliberately caused himself to be detected in such a manner. (HF 3.06 - "Santa Q")
Slow Promotion Progress
Capell didn't enjoy the rapid promotion rate of his colleagues aboard the Excelsior, possibly due to the high number of injuries he sustained. While a capable pilot, he frequently found himself on the sidelines during the majority of the Tholian-Breen conflict. He only recently made the rank of full Lieutenant.
