Personality & Traits

General Overview Like many Vulcans, Calin is noted by his ability to live by reason and logic without emotional interference. Despite being forty-two years of age, Calin has only spent five of those years among other races. While studied on known alpha and beta quadrant species, he doesn’t have a significant amount of first-hand experience in dealing with them.

One thing Calin is known for is his stoicism. Ask him a direct question, and you'll get a direct answer with very little elaboration.

Ambitions While Calin has settled into his new career as an investigative officer, he regrets (as much as a Vulcan can regret something) not being able to be a Valkyrie fighter pilot. As Vulcans are not supposed to dwell, Calin now seeks to put his abilities and talents to good use in the security field. He hopes to ascend the ranks to Department Chief, but has not decide whether or not he will pursue Command someday.

Personal History Calin was conceived as the result of a Pon Farr mating ritual between his mother and father on board the Sujr research station in the Severan star system. The station itself, constructed inside of a hollowed out asteroid comprised of ultra-dense mineral deposits that would shield the crew from intense levels of ambient radiation, was designed to monitor and study an anomalous stellar cluster several light years away.

While Calin’s mother, T’ffal, had anticipated on returning to Vulcan to complete the ritual, gravitic sheering from the stellar cluster prevented a timely departure. By the time it was possible for a ship to bring T’ffal back to Vulcan, she was already in the advanced stages of Pon Farr and wouldn’t have survived the transit. The only alternative was for her to mate with another member of the Sujr’s science team. Despite taking precautionary measures designed to inhibit conception, however, T’ffal and her taken mate, Vadek, conceived a child together.

Calin was born on Vulcan. Under the tutelage of a Vulcan elder and trusted acquaintance of his parents, Calin learned mathematics and physics, the way of logic, and how to detach himself from his emotions. Upon completing his maturity test, Calin took his first steps into adulthood where he achieved the Venlinahr by the time he was thirty-five. Proving himself as being proficient in the disciplines of Vulcan logic, Calin chose to apply for Starfleet Academy.

Starfleet History At the Academy on Earth, Calin demonstrated exceptional abilities in three-dimensional visualization, navigation, and conceptualization, and was fast tracked to flight school as part of Starfleet’s Valkyrie program. There, Calin met fellow cadets Samuel ‘Sammy’ Hopper and Sun ‘Jabber’ Cha Ko, whom would become his squadron mates and friends at the academy. Calin considered Samuel to be an outgoing, social, and group minded individual with a tendency to boast, and Sun as a talkative, disorganized, but dominating young woman who was fiercely loyal to her peers. Together, they excelled.

With only days left before their graduation flight, Calin agreed with Samuel and Sun to a modified flight plan allowing them to closely skirt Jupiter’s ionized troposphere as part of a simulated combat exercise. They’d expected the demonstration to confirm their abilities, as well as allow them to gain a significant advantage over their opponents, another wing of Valkyrie’s piloted by another prestigious group. The two teams had been at odds for years, each putting additional effort towards defeating the other. Whichever side emerged victorious would lead the formation on graduation day.

The result was an unmitigated disaster resulting in two Valkyrie’s destroyed and both Sun and Calin being placed under intensive care at Starfleet Medical. A formal review of the incident determined that considerable irregular oscillation caused by turbulence caused Sun to lose control of her Valkyrie, at which point hers collided with Calin’s craft. The combination of velocity, hull damage, and an overbearing gravitational pull from Jupiter prevented either pilot from regaining control of their vessels; their ships disintegrated, while an emergency transporter relay spared their lives.

Starfleet Investigations ruled the incident as unavoidable given the circumstances involved, finding neither pilot at fault. While Sun was able to return to duty, the effects of violent decompression and physical injury to his spinal column prohibited him from graduating as a Valkyrie fighter pilot since his body would not be capable of tolerating the extreme gravitational forces Samuel Hopper, overridden by guilt of what happened, chose to resign his commission rather than graduate.

Calin spent several months in recovery at Starfleet Medical before selecting a new path in Tactical and Security. He attended an additional three semesters of training before graduating from the Academy as an Ensign, at which point he was assigned to the USS Galileo as a Security Investigations Officer.
