Character Biography

Do not refer to your toy-books, and say you have seen that before. Answer me rather, if I ask you, have you understood it before?

  • Michael Faraday

The day a young Thomas Michael Faraday learned about the scientist Michael Faraday changed his life forever. He became instantly fascinated with science, how it interacts with and changes our world. Everything around him became an object of study, a subject of experiment; soon he realized he enjoyed the designing, the building, the creation more than the results. With the encouragement of his parents, he began studying advanced maths to better help him understand some of the principles he was learning about. He began entering science fairs, never winning, but always enjoying the thrill of discovery, and the joy of building something, of creating.

Of course, growing up in Kansas, he enjoyed the outdoors as well. He and his father’s annual holo-hunting trip was something he looked forward to every year; he practiced year round, with rifle and bow, becoming good enough he made his high school marksmanship team, where he learned pistol and low-powered phaser shooting, though he was still better with a rifle.

His marksmanship skills earned him the eye of the Starfleet Marine Corps, who visited him several times trying to recruit him. Each time he’d tell them “Look, I like shooting, but I love building things.” He enrolled in Starfleet Academy and majored in astromechanics, and the visits finally stopped. He continued to excel in classes there, and made the marksmanship team again. He was never the best shot, but he was very close.

Shall we educate ourselves in what is known, and then casting away all we have acquired, turn to ignorance for aid to guide us among the unknown?

  • Michael Faraday

Thomas’s first assignment out of the Academy was to the Starfleet Engineering Corps, assigned to he Alaska Fleet Yards as part of the starship design team. He was a cog in the process for the designs of several starships, but longed to be on a ship, where he felt the real thrill of discovery and building things would be found. He requested a transfer after his promotion to Lt. j.g., and was assigned to the USS Piri Reis, then was transferred to the USS Montgomery after two years.

He excels at problem solving, outside the box thinking, and his superior officers have given him commendations for his critical response times and ideas. The Chief Engineer of the Montgomery has recommended him for a chief engineer position when one opens up in the fleet.

Thomas is what you would describe as “boy next door”. Good looking, with a crooked smile, hair slightly too long so it hangs over his forehead.
