During his time on the edges of explored space, he met Dr. Petra Shannon and pursued her with wine, roses and candlelight.

When Petra took an assignment in the Gateway Sector, Val was surprised, but pulled a few strings and got himself assigned there as well.

Val is diligent about his duty. He seems to have something of a split personality. He is serious as death when he's on the job, but happy-go-lucky and charming when off-duty.
