    Preface: I was inspired to do my own biography of my STO character after reading SnowWolfs biography. So here we go:

    MBsSG8V
    LJzMfKc

    Starfleet Tactical Officer
    Human, Male


    Starfleet Serial Number:
    SC - 756 - 454


    Current Rank:
    Admiral - Flag Officer for the Typhon Sector


    Flagship:
    U.S.S. REPULSE
    NCC - 2544
    EXCELSIOR CLASS STARSHIP


    BIOGRAPHY:

    Owen grew up in London, Great Britain. He hails from a long line of family who served in Starfleet or the Federation Naval Service, when he was younger he held no aspirations to join Starfleet much to his fathers chagrin. His father Capt. Matthew Richards was often away from home commanding the U.S.S. Essex (Nebula Class) and wasn't very active in Owen's life, then it happened, The Borg. The U.S.S. Essex was destroyed at the Battle of Wolf 359 with all hands, after the Cube was defeated by U.S.S. Enterprise above Earth, the news reached Owen of his fathers fate.

    News of his fathers death blinded Owen and he spiralled into a deep depression, turning to alcohol as a means to numb the pain. His drinking landed him into a jail cell on more than one occasion. However, one night Owen got blind drunk at a little bar in San Francisco called the Red Horse, he ended up causing a bar fight with a group of Starfleet Ensigns fresh out of the academy who didn't take too kindly to his attitude about Starfleet personnel. After a very vicious beating, Owen and the Ensigns were arrested by the local police.

    Owen was sentenced to 2 years in a Federation Penal Colony, he had a pretty big rap sheet by now. While serving his sentence in the penal colony, Owen received help to kick his addiction to alcohol, he ended up serving his full sentence and was released in 2368. For the next year Owen bounced around and eventually found himself back in London. One day sitting in a little cafe, he was approached by a Starfleet Admiral. This man was Vice Admiral William Ross.

    After a lengthy conversation Ross offered Owen the opportunity to sign up for Starfleet to make his father proud of him. Admiral Ross knew Owens father well and felt an obligation to do right by his friend and look out for his son. Owen eventually decided to take the Academy entrance exam and passed with flying colours. Through his time at the Academy, Owen demonstrated a keen tactical mind and a love for the tactical position on the Bridge of a Starship.

    In 2370 Owen Graduated salutatorian from his class and was assigned the rank of Ensign. His first posting was on the U.S.S. Crazy Horse (Excelsior Class) as tactical officer under Captain Hallings. Owen quickly rose through the ranks during his 2 years of service aboard the Crazy Horse rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.

    Owen continued to serve in Starfleet during the Dominion War and was given a field commission of Captain when both the Captain and First Officer were killed during a Jem'Hadar attack during the early days of the Dominion War. in 2374 during the First Battle of Chin'toka the Crazy Horse now under the command of Captain Owen Richards was destroyed although most of the crew made it to escape pods.

    Owens was then given Command of the U.S.S Repulse, another Excelsior class ship. The Repulse saw action during the rest of the Dominion war, most notably during Operation Return and the Battle for Cardassia. After the Dominion war Owen was offered a promotion to the Rank of Admiral to take over as flag officer of the Typhon Sector. The admiralty was in dire need of new "blood" after the considerable losses sustained during the War.

    The Repulse is currently undergoing a long overdue refit, she will serve as a testbed for some of latest advances in Starfleets weaponry and tactical systems.

    Sure, give me a little while to get it all together Big Grin

    - - - Updated - - -

    CREW BIOGRAPHIES


    aesSxHy
    Isazi Zh'vyhlehr
    Starfleet Tactical Officer
    Andorian, Female


    Starfleet Serial Number:
    SC - 712 - 654


    Current Rank:
    Commander - First Officer - U.S.S. Repulse


    Biography:

    Isazi is a Starfleet Officer through and through. She is an incredibly strong willed individual with a keen sense for tactics and diplomacy. She is considered a rising star in Starfleet and has already been offered a command of her own, which she turned down to serve with Admiral Richards as his X.O. Isazi is a typical female Andorian who knows what she wants and she's not afraid to get it. She has also learned to walk the fine line of the Prime Directive when it comes to protecting her ship and crew.

    She likes to spend most of her off hours in the armoury, testing herself at the phaser range. She is undoubtedly an incredible marksman and a must have on your away team should things go south. While she is the X.O of the U.S.S. Repulse, she also servers as her Tactical Officer.
    S6hyZqK
    Jumi Choiso
    Starfleet Engineering Officer
    Betazoid, Female


    Starfleet Serial Number:
    SC - 752 - 865


    Current Rank:
    Commander - Chief Engineer - U.S.S. Repulse


    Biography:

    Jumi is a full blown Betazoid, well known for empathic and telepathic abilities. Although she tries to keep that reined in where she can, during combat the emotional stress of the crew can really get to her. She is an unparalleled engineer, she could rebuild anything you could imagine from memory without even needing to refer to the schematics. She is considered one of the best engineers in Starfleet, next to Commander Laforge. Before being posted to the Repulse she served on the Enterprise E under Captain Picard and Commander Laforge, she was fast tracked for promotion and eventually transferred to the Repulse to server as Chief Engineer.

    She spends most of her time fine tuning the Warp Core and she considers it "her baby".

    Pkne1Em
    Emlynn Custis
    Starfleet Medical Officer
    Human, Female


    Starfleet Serial Number:
    SC - 795 - 215


    Current Rank:
    Lieutenant Commander - Chief Medical Officer - U.S.S. Repulse


    Biography:

    Emlynn is currently the resident C.M.O for the Repulse and is one of the original crew left over from the Dominion War. Her knowledge of medicine and healing have pulled her fellow officers through close scrapes. She is a very fun and joyful individual and acts like a mother like figure to most of the junior officers who come with in broken bones after playing parrises squares!

    She is a very sociable individual and can often be found in the mess hall or on the holodeck taking part in medical mystery holonovel.

    lrWxJXZ
    Seleth
    Starfleet Engineering Officer
    Vulcan, Male


    Starfleet Serial Number:
    SC - 723 - 423


    Current Rank:
    Lieutenant - Operations Officer - U.S.S. Repulse


    Biography:

    Seleth is a recently transferred from the U.S.S. Agamemnon under Captain Griffiths. He is a capable operations officer and your typical Vulcan, very logical and quick to point out when his captain is about to cross a line. He is often meditating during his off hours and usually on duty bright and early. Although rumour has it then he has been spotted in the mess hall drinking prune juice. An odd choice for a Vulcan to be sure.

    He will make a fine captain one day.

    One of those default faces, I haven't had the desire to customise him to any great extent Tongue Out
