History, Education and Skills
Family and Background :

He had a rather non-descript life. An only child, his parents disbanded their wedding-contract when he was 18 and had just started university. But before then, their relationship was already strained and they kept together just for his sake. At University he met up with Lydia Barker, daughter of Rear-Admiral Barker. They had a brief period of dating and married whilst in their second year at university. The year after they married, when Archibald was 21, Lydia gave birth to twins, Esmerelda and William. Both Lydia and Archibald managed to graduate the year after, and both entered Starfleet Academy. They were fast-tracked by her father, although they both showed ability and promise in any case. Lydia is now a Rear-Admiral, however, whilst Archibald, although whilst in Doenitz's fleet held the rank of Captain, is now a Commander.

Starfleet History


Both Archibald and Lydia entered Starfleet Academy at the same time, fast-tracked into Command class. They kept together all the time at the Academy but when they graduated (both with honours) they were assigned to different ships. Both became department heads after two years service, and rose through the ranks quickly. Lydia became Captain of the USS Watanabe (a light explorer) three years before Archibald became Captain of the USS Manchester (a heavy cruiser). Through their actions and determination, both were awarded many medals. Recently they both became COs of two re-designed Sovereign-class ships, expressly intended to take on and defeat Keltois. Lydia called hers The Star of Samarkand, and Archibald named his The Rose of Samarkand as a sign of their respect for one another. Not happy with the way Starfleet was behaving, Archibald defected to the 52nd Fleet with his ship and crew who chose to follow him. The Rose was turned over to the 52nd, mothballed, the crew dispersed and Archibald demoted to Commander.

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. "It's going to take time, its going to be a toll... I will be right here, and I am not going anywhere."
