Starfleet History

:

The 4 years John spent at the academy were some of the best times he had ever had.He had finally arrived at a place where he was able to fulfill his dreams of a star Fleet career. Unfortunately he also discovered he had a flare for practical jokes as well as talents for Tactical/security work and some small successes in the counseling fields although the tactical was by far more interesting. Not that John wasn't any good with the counseling courses and he did enjoy helping others, he just preferred more hands on type of work. While at the Academy John joined the hand to hand classes that were offered as well as the required courses for his chosen profession. Thanks to his earlier work in Martial arts he quickly excelled to the point one of the StarFleet Marine Recruiters tried to entice him into joining up. While the offer sounded good and he almost accepted John chose to stay with his first choice and continued his studies. Officer Training Ha seemed to settled John down a bit although he stills enjoys the odd joke here and there although nothing serious. John still misses flying but would seldom have time to enjoy it anymore. He has joined the flight acrobatic team though and is trying to come up with new unused patterns to try out.
