History, Education and Skills
Family and Background :

Sam was born on Alpha Centauri, and lived his younger years there with his mother and his father, until they were reassigned to the USS Acclimation when he was four. His ambition was to pursue a career in astrogation, and he spent much of his time with his father, looking up into the stars. However, when Sam was 19, his parents were both killed aboard the USS Endeavour. The exploration vessel was ambushed in a surprise attack by Romulan forces, whilst the ship was conducting a routine sweep close to the Neutral zone. The death of his parents left Sam alone in this world. He was not aboard at the time of the attack as he was attending a course for children of Starfleet officers interested in a career in astrogation, held on the USS Intrepid. During the course, those attending were allowed to view some of the most advanced astronavigation equipment of the time. After his parents' death he joined a freighter crew, where he became apprentice navigator/co-pilot.



Sam went through normal schooling aboard several ships depending on where his parents were assigned, finishing further education aboard the USS Endeavour aged of 19, however the death of his parents lead his path away from university and a career in astrogation, which had been a childhood ambition. It was then that he found an apprentice post aboard a lithium Freighter. After working aboard the freighter for 5 years, in which time he learned piloting and honed his star mapping skills, it was attacked by an unknown vessel the likes of which Sam had not seen in his lifetime, and forced to crash land on a small Klingon colony, Qal’ka. Although the rest of the crew found safe passage back to Federation space, Sam chose to remain and study the arts of battle and war. After 7 years, he decided now was the time to make a choice in his life, so he took the next transport into Federation space to begin his training at Starfleet Academy.

Pre-Starfleet History


See Education

Starfleet History


After graduating from Starfleet Academy, Sam's first assignment was aboard the USS Paladin, a Meredith Class vessel the size of a small starbase, where he was posted as Assistant Tactical and Security Chief. On board he experienced many battles, and increased his level of skill in many aspects of his role. He also aided in the security of a virus stricken planet. He was then reassigned to the USS Perception, travelling via Starbase Geneva., However, his transport was intercepted en-route, and he was captured by the USS Wyvern; a starship under Doenitz's command. He was held there for two weeks pending transfer for trial as a rebel until the Wyvern was captured by the USS Champlain.

Medical History


Sam has little notable medical history, however Starfleet Medical has noted that Sam has a slightly quicker healing time than is generally the average for humans. However, investigations proved that there is nothing abnormal about his rate of recovery, he is merely in the top centile.

Recovery rate example: where the norm is four weeks, Sam would take just over three.



Sam is an exceptional pilot and has a natural feel for flying; he is also a good tactician, and is skilled with the Bat'leth, thanks to his time spent learning the teachings of Klingon warriors. He is also adept at navigation due to his astrogation training.

Negotiation is not his most notable forte however, as his tendency for a short temper can cause Sam to choose a quicker route to the result than hours of talks.

Admiral Bell threw her arms around the Ensign, "You don't have to be scared anymore, you don't have to be guilty anymore, you are not responsible for what that madman did to you.", she said to her quietly and for a moment longer, releasing her from the embrace.
