Personal History Personal History: Born to a Persian father and a Parisian mother, Noah is the third of four children, and the only son. Growing up in an affluent home, he and his sisters were afforded numerous opportunities in life, but their parents always strove to keep them well-grounded. As a result, Noah matured into a clever, even-tempered young man with a passion for learning.

Graduating from Secondary School with honors, he applied to Starfleet Academy and was readily accepted. It was Noah’s first true experience with a large variety of different species. His family had traveled often when he was young, but predominately about their own system, with only a few trips outside to Vulcan or Bajor. It was a bit of a culture shock, but controlled by the environs of the Academy.

While most of Noah’s peers declared their course of study from the beginning, he took a year to consider the options, finally settling on the Operations Track within weeks of finishing his second semester. From that point, his study was focused towards accomplishing all his courses and learning his chosen career inside out.
Starfleet History Upon graduation, Noah was given the rank of Ensign, and his first assignment – Operations officer on the USS Talifero. He was beginning near the bottom, receiving the least favorable assignments. Rather than complain, Noah used the opportunities given him to build on his knowledge of Operations as a whole. Before his third year, he had earned a promotion to Lieutenant, Junior Grade, and was offered the position of Assistant Operations Chief on the USS Thisbe.

Noah’s progress continued. He grew into his place as a leader, learning how to direct those under him without bossing them about. His mentor on the Thisbe was a Bajoran woman who viewed him with amusement most often, but grew to respect his dedication. It was she who put in his name as her replacement for when she finally made the decision to retire; as well as a referral for promotion to full Lieutenant.

The opportunity never came; in early 2388 matters came to an abrupt and near-tragic head. The USS Thisbe – designed for study and exploration, rather than combat – was caught in the middle of a skirmish on the Romulan border. Unable to defend herself against stronger, more agile opponents, the ship was badly damaged with many hands injured and dead.

Noah was fortunately among the former; when he finally awoke, it was to find himself not on the shattered bridge of the Thisbe, but in the infirmary of SB10. Over time his body healed, but his left knee – which had taken the brunt of the explosion – never fully recovered. Through therapy and with the aid of a knee brace he had regained enough mobility to attend his usual duties.

He put in his request for active duty, working with the operations team on the station in the meantime until an opening on the USS Galileo came around. Noah wasted no time in accepting the offer, happy to be in the game once more.
Medical History Following the destruction of the Thisbe, Noah spent 20 months in rehab on SB10 undergoing various treatment for various injuries:

Second degree burns to his left side
Torn rotator cuff (right shoulder)
Tympanic Membrane injury (ruptured ear-drum)
Severe concussion
Multiple fractured bones and contusions
Soft tissue bruising
Shattered left knee.

For the most part, the medical team was able to address and remedy the majority of his injuries. His hearing recovered from the TM rupture, though he would continue to experience bouts of vertigo and tinnitus on occasion.

It was the knee injury which proved the most problematic; most of the bone and surrounding ligaments were damaged beyond repair. The medics were able to save the leg, but the joint was badly fused by time rescue crews had reached the wounded.

After months of physical therapy, Noah regained enough use of the joint to allow for general use and return to active duty. Additional surgical treatments were suggested, but eventually turned down as their promise of further recovery was minimal at best.
