Physical Description:
Mike Gareth stands broad shouldered and tall with somewhat of slight muscular build. Though he doesn’t appear with the stereotypical six pack and cut muscles, but being a big guy you can tell he has some power behind him due to his background. Despite having such an intimidating appearance, his hazel eyes seem to have an
unspoken softness behind them. Underneath his uniform, he does have a few scars from phaser and disruptor fire that he declined having a dermal regenerator used on
as a memory of the work he’s done helping to keep his colony safe. He has these burn scars on his right shoulder, the right side of his body near his ribs, left tricep, and right calf.

Growing up on an outlying colony, piracy and raiders seemed to be a common theme in the district. He lost his biological mother Maria from
such a raid when he was just a child. As he grew, he joined the local militia as his father, Jonathan, had done. Eventually his father re-married
another woman, Leah who is now his step-mother. He also has a younger sister Rachel whom he cares deeply for. Mike didn’t seem to care too much
about personal issues or relationships at that time because he just wanted to do his best to stop people from losing those they love. He almost seemed
to devote himself to the work the Militia did keeping the colony safe from those who wished to do harm to it. Having just the basic Federation
education and almost a wanderlust to want to be able to do more for not just his colony, but all others on the front. He knew Starfleet would be
the answer to everything he seeked. To be aboard a Starship that can travel swiftly between colonies that are in danger he’d be able to do more than he
ever could just sitting in one place. He did struggle in the Academy, but always managed to pass his classes. He wasn’t too adept in science, but when it
came to Security and combat tactics, he managed to excel due to his prior experience with the Militia. Some of the most fun he had in the academy was the
piloting course. Despite his average performance, he felt thrilled to be in a starship, it didn’t matter how small it was. He knew he was one step closer to
being able to help people. Engineering was rather hit or miss .. sometimes components an occasional isolinear chip would explode on him, sometimes he’d
manage to fix them flawlessly. With some hard study and constantly applying himself with the knowledge he’s learned from the course he managed to hang on
at the top 25 of his class. His next challenge would prove to be the greatest one yet. He was finally assigned to the USS Challenger for his Cadet cruise
assigned as Security. Several feelings flooded him at once for this news. Anxiety, excitement, wonder, fear. There was one thing that he knew he didn’t
want to do, and that was to leave a negative impression on his first cruise. The Cadet cruise definitely had some interesting challenges to overcome and a strict
Chief of Security. Despite his harshness at times Gareth knew he meant well and there was always something to learn every time he spoke with Lt. (jg) Royal Sinclair.
He would definitely be someone he was going to miss. Hopefully he’d see him one day again in Starfleet, but for now his next task awaited him.

Medical History:
The only prior injuries that Mike Gareth has are just some scars from phaser/distuptor fire that he declined having a dermal regenerator used on while defending the
colony from raiders/pirates. Thankfully due to Federation Medical Technology, there are no lasting medical issues and the scars are basically just cosmetic. In his records
from the Militia, early on it would indicate that he had been rather reckless early in his career sacrificing his own safety to go and help others in need. However, as time passed, his experience grew to implement more thought and tactics into his rescue attempts.
