Personal History John did not come from a family with much money. He and his brother and sister grew up on a peanut farm in Georgia. The hard work but good home cooked food meant he grew big and strong quickly.

School was never a forte for John or his siblings, and what he did get he spent many a time after school getting into fights over being teased over his name. It was his name that started him though on his hobby and the one subject he found much interest in.

After the end of school he did not want to continue on the farm. He had started working at local garages and found fixing things to be more suited to his mind and hands. He soon became good at what he did.

A passing tourist took note of his work and offered him a job in working in mining ventures off planet. That was John's first taste of space and he loved it. The venue changed and he got to handle a lot equipment including ships.

He worked at that for several years before the company went bust and he found himself near flat broke back on Earth. Fleet had recruitment posters up and it seemed a good idea to a boy that could fix things and had the stars in his eyes to get back to space so he signed up.

Since his formal education was lacking but his technical and mechanical abilities were good, he was accepted into service. He attended the required basic courses and did alright on the theoretical exams but when it came to hands on, he got top marks by all the instructors.

For seven years he was assigned at dry dock work and he worked his way up from crewman to finally make petty officer. A chance came to move from the docks to an actual star ship so he put in his application.

Starfleet History After finishing Starfleet engineering John spent the next seven years working the docks at Starbase 25.

He then got assigned as an Engineer mate on a expedition to the Akkadian system. He met a pretty little Nekomi whom he has been trying to whoo.

After returning from that expedition he got assigned as prime engineer on the USS Schofield. It proved to be interesting keeping the old tub running. Upon returning from that he was assigned to the Galileo-A as an engineering mate.
