Personality & Traits

General Overview Pajem Malko is a sensual person, right down to his bones. In his work, he understands the need for detached observation. In his personal life, he continues his need for observation, but he includes a component of physicality. Sight, sound, smell, taste, touch; the wondrous varieties of people, places and things in a single room are always enough to keep him entertained for hours. Malko is particularly tactile; the feel of things are important to him.

Starfleet History Having tested well in mathematics and sciences during his primary education, Pajem Malko stuck with what he knew when he enlisted with Starfleet. He gravitated towards the Science division, with a curiosity for the Science of Systems -- the delicate operation of computer systems, the cultural systems that people create, the ecological systems that evolve upon planets, and the solar systems in which they all existed. As a result of his acceptable, if not stellar, grades through his training and apprenticeship, Malko was not awarded a posting aboard a starship as a Crewman.

Spurned by his assignment to Starbase Six, Crewman Malko strove to streamline his livelihood. He developed select relationships with the inhabitants of the sleepy planetside starbase, but his focus remained entangled with abstract concepts and the ideals of Starfleet. His only opportunity to seek out newness was when starships were overburdened with too many samples of scientific interest, and deposited their trinkets among the greater resources of the starbase. While Malko was a Petty Officer, he was a member of an Archaeology & Anthropology team studying Ma-aira Thenn relics. For a brief time, Malko was considered to be an expert on the Ma-aira Thenn, because he managed to open an ancient puzzle box containing engraved data tablets. The research hadn't been his own, of course, but it had been a glint of brilliance on Malko's part that had unlocked the box. All the while, Malko insisted that his muse had been Paulo Gill, one of the chefs on Starbase Six. Malko has been quoted as saying that Paulo's kiwi trifle "tastes like discovery".

It proved to be a struggle, for Malko, to perform anything more impressive than his lucky deductive leap with the Ma-aira Thenn relic. He served his department with excellence, but some of his focus was lost in his desire for scientific excellence. He transferred between Science teams every few months, and regularly volunteered for projects in fields he knew little about. While he couched his transfers in an effort of self-betterment, he was searching for the field that would best suit him.

Through some combination of his commitment to the breadth of Starfleet Science and that one time he opened a box, Petty Officer 2nd Class Pajem Malko was assigned to his first starship posting aboard the USS Galileo-A.
