Birthplace: Earth, Tulsa - Oklahoma
Joseph is solidly built, though not overly muscular. He’s a weathered man, having spent a good deal of his life working hard out of doors. He stands five feet, nine inches tall, with dark hair and hazel colored eyes. Joe’s features are stern, but honest; telling of a hard life well lived.
Joseph is the oldest of five siblings, and as such, was thrust into a leadership role early in life. Growing up on a farm, working with his father and brothers created a dedicate work ethic in Joe. Likewise, the responsibility of having to help raise his siblings as well as manage the farm work with his father developed a good sense of working with others. Joe is a kind and honest man at heart, but his temper can get hot once his limits are reached.
Joseph was born just outside Tulsa, Oklahoma to George and Tabitha Franklin. The Franklins had been farmers for generations, and were a large family. Joe grew up with three brothers (One of whom also joined star fleet, James), a sister, and various strays his father and mother took in. George Franklin taught his sons (and anyone else who happened to be within earshot) how to work hard, and live honestly. It was a work ethic from another era. Tabitha Franklin insisted that her family be educated. She always told her children to work smart as well as hard.
After graduating from Star Fleet Academy, Joe was stationed aboard the USS Phoenix as an Ensign in engineering section. After several missions, he made Lieutenant Junior Grade. Several assignments and a few years later, Joe was made the Chief Engineer aboard USS Augustine, currently transferring to USS Montgommery.
