Personality & Traits

General Overview John is an introverted type of person, who is always at a loss for words. He is not very well-spoken, and he tends to stutter when nervous or under pressure.
Strengths & Weaknesses While he is very socially awkward, he is a gifted engineer. The only thing stopping him from becoming famous is how incapable he is of presenting himself.
Ambitions He has always striven to serve as an Engineer in Starfleet. He asked to be assigned to a space station instead of a starship because he wants to serve in the field, but he has always disliked change, and thus he prefers to stay in one place and not be moving from solar system to solar system all the time.
Hobbies & Interests John loves tinkering with technology, and as a child he enjoyed building model starships. Even today, he enjoys designing miniatures, especially ones that actually have some level of function. He recently built a miniature warp core that pretty accurately simulated a real one (albeit with a drastically lowered power output).

Personal History John's parents recognized early on that he had a gift for technology. Whenever he had the chance he would steal one of their PADDs and take it apart, and though he was unable to reassemble one completely until he was eleven, he did manage to build lots of other contraptions in the mean time.

His mother took maternity leave to live with him and his father until his first birthday, whereupon she was assigned to the USS Pastor, and John lived with his father. His mother spent most of her shore leave on Earth with John.
