Personal History

Personal History 1805 in the Highlands of Scotland, a small research vessel sent by the El Aurian Science Academy to study the history of Earth crashed and was rendered un flyable even with the repair options, two of the three man crew had been killed in the crash leaving the lone survivor stranded in Scotland.

As was the standard protocol the ship was imploded after being stripped of supplies and the lone historian looked to disappear in to the crowd in London England, deciding the larger city would allow him to blend in and wait for rescue, Rescue never came, however he did manage to land a job as a metal smith's apprentice , working with iron and steel, while living in a small rooming house when, in a fit of foolish bravado, he signed up for the army to fight Napoleon, During his enlistment in the Coldstream Guards, he was selected to serve as a runner for the commander of the forces, the Duke of Wellington.

During his service he did his best to as it was put "stay out of history" his job was far enough behind the lines to avoid both death, and the possibility of being recognized. It didn't stop him from being mentioned in dispatches once for running an order through fire to one of the cavalry officers.

After Waterloo, he moved off then disappeared, realizing that he couldn't stay the same age for hundreds of years, leaving a note he had left for Australia.

From that time he worked odd jobs and moved around England to stay out of the way, he took jobs as a coal miner, chef, dock laborer, Driver, both horse and truck, while moving and disappearing to keep his cover, When 1914 came around, he was a Police Constable in the Metropolitan Police Force, when the call for troops for king and country rang loudly and with several of his colleagues he joined the Royal Scots Fusiliers, from 1914-1918 he served with distinction, eventually earning the rank of Sargent, with a decoration to his name, a Military Cross, for valor.

After the war he moved around again, this time back to London where he worked more odd jobs before finding his way to schooling. During his education he learned to fly small aircraft, which brought him to the attention of the Royal Air Force, he was commissioned a Lieutenant and trained to fly Spitfires during the Battle of Britain, it was during this time that his actions in downing a German Bomber, and veering his wounded plane to a safer landing space resulted in his being decorated with a Victoria Cross from King George VI, while he recovered from a broken leg he was assigned to General Staff, Then reassigned to work with the allied commands when planning Operation Overlord.

After the war ended he Emigrated to the United States and found a place to hide, He disappeared again, the next time he found his way in to the US Navy, he went in to OCS, not wanting to get the publicity an appointment would bring, where he found a good niche in the surface fleet, serving on several vessels up to command of a cruiser before being moved to shore duty where he served on the staff of Supreme Allied Commander-Europe (SACEUR).

After his retirement he disappeared for a long while, wanting instead to just hide out and wait for rescue. Eventually a Vulcan survey team showed up and one tricorder scan, the cat was out of the bag

Deciding not to make too much on it, he instead went home for a bit to both publish his finding and reconnect with family, he had been away too long and he couldn't fit in so he came back to Earth and after a few hundred years of observing the cultural changes and observing history,

Finally around 2315 he was selected for admission to Starfleet Academy where he studied engineering and focused on warp theory and matter/antimatter reactions.

He moved up the ranks in engineering, finally serving as field XO/command of the USS Duke of Wellington, a Defiant class stationed outside Deep Space 12.

He was selected as XO for the Jerusalem when the slot came available.
