Jordan was the only child of a Starfleet couple who had managed to make a name for themselves early on and achieve the coveted planet-based posting that makes raising a family a legitimate option. Stationed at Utopia Planitia Colony, and both of them continuing the work they loved in their respective fields, the couple became pregnant less than a year into their marriage, and nine short months later, Jordan was delivered into the world.

A precocious child, with a wealth of energy, and a serious curiosity about everything around him he would spend his days wandering the colony, getting into mischief as he tried to learn anything and everything he could about the world around him, how to take it apart to see how it worked, and how to put it back together again so that it still did. Thankfully this trait remained as he matured, even when he was a teen and obsessed with sports, weightlifting, and boys, his curious mind never slowed down.

By the time he made his way into high school he’d more than made up his mind that a career in Starfleet was his destiny. He began preparatory classes as soon as he was allowed to do so and set to them with a gusto that impressed both his instructors and his parents. Two years later he was allowed to sit the Academy entrance exam, a full two months before he’d even graduated, and was accepted into the engineering program, slated to leave for Earth the day after his commencement ceremony.

Over the next four years Jordan’s head would be crammed so full of knowledge, and his body would be put through so much to prepare him for any eventuality, that he sometimes thought he wasn’t going to make it. His tenacious nature, and his somewhat obnoxiously overdone self-assuredness kicked in every time he started to think like that, and he’d bounce back quickly. It was during that time that his self-assuredness also came back to bite him, as the two cadets he’d been seeing, each unbeknownst to the other, caught him in the act and humiliated him in the middle of the mess hall, putting an end to his dating career for the remainder of his time at the Academy.

Graduating in in top ten percent of his class and helping the Starfleet Academy Phoenix wrestling team to the Federation Wrestling Championship, he was able to walk the stage with his head held high, and a massive smile on his face, coming off the other end with his diploma in one hand, and a shiny gold pip on the collar of his new Operations red uniform. And now, he’s off to his first posting, aboard the USS Chernov, as a junior engineering officer, ready to fulfill the destiny he’s made for himself.
