Character Description

Physical Description:

Scott is fit, with a slim waist and wide shoulders. Stronger than he appears, he works hard at keeping himself in shape. Scott isn't imposing, as his friendly smile and average looks tend to put people at ease. He wears his hair short, almost shaved on the sides, and scarcely longer on top (less hair means one less thing for one's opponents to grab hold of in a fight, in Scott's opinion. Plus, he thinks that it looks sharper.).

Academic record:

Scott's academic record is above average, yet not exemplary, save for his marks in tactical simulations, security protocols and, a surprise to those who don't know him well, history. His practical evaluations have been better, with his evaluating officers noting that Scott's leadership skills are, generally, very good, and that his sense of duty is very strong. Scott always prepares himself methodically for any new assignment, although it can take some time before he feels comfortable enough in a new position to innovate or make changes.

Personality/Psych profile:

Scott has always been competitive, both in school and academically. While he can usually achieve whatever he sets his mind to, he has no natural gifts or talents in his mind, something that bothers him immensely. He has always been envious of those who appear, in his eyes, to have 'natural' talents, and works hard to prove that he can do the same activities. His time at the Academy influenced him profoundly, as he discovered that he had talents of his own. He thrived in the structured environment, adapting to the discipline with ease, and earning praise for his leadership skills. He finished solidly in the top third of his class, distinguishing himself in no particular area of study. Scott tends to make acquaintances easily, but his true friends are few and far between. However, he is intensely loyal what friends he has, and to his superiors.

Family History:

Scott was raised in Santa Fe, where solitude and somewhat wide-open spaces were still available. Both of his parents are academics. His father is a professor of history, one who specialized in military history, and who lectured as a guest in universities world wide. His mother is a biologist, and at one time, Scott thought that he might follow in her footsteps. However, while he did well in his science classes in school, he did not distinguish himself to the level that he felt was necessary to pursue a career in the field. His mother, while respecting the work that her husband and son do, has always felt that they weren't achieving their full potential. She has always been supportive, but tends to apply pressure on Scott to perform to her admittedly high standards.

Scott has always been very deferential to his mother, and is wary of confronting her directly, tending to bury his feelings of intense personal frustration and failing behind a cheerful exterior. His father, on the other hand, has always been quietly supportive of Scott. He is intensely proud of his son's accomplishments, though he expresses it in actions more than words. Because of this, most people will notice that Scott speaks more of his mother than his father, though he loves them both intensely. Only Scott's closest friends are aware of the enormous influence that his father had on him.

Leaving home for Starfleet Academy was something of a relief for Scott. The distance allowed Scott to come to terms with some of the issues he had with his mother, while allowing him a venue in which to pursue his own interests. Both parents are still alive, and living in Santa Fe. Scott has no brothers or sisters, but numerous cousins. He visits home when he can, but tends to accept extra assignments when they are available. His parents often state that they wish that he would visit more often, but Scott remains noncommittal, stating that he will visit as often as his sense of duty will allow.

Personal History:

Scott, as the first person in his family to join Starfleet, has felt a certain amount of pressure. Academically, he has always felt the pressure to perform, first in order to secure an appointment to the academy, second, to excel at whatever field he chose. While he managed to do well enough to secure an appointment, he never earned the highest marks in his classes. Hard work and dedication were Scott's trademarks. His parents are both well known within their respective academic communities, and Scott has, since he was old enough to realize this, felt a self-imposed pressure to perform at a level that would meet with their approval.

Because of this, Scott's pre-Academy education was marked by an intense desire to prepare himself for the academy, as he recognized that he could not meet his parents' standards in their respective academic fields. He applied himself with an intense vigor to the intellectual and physical training that he thought he would need to win an appointment, and sacrificed a certain amount of socialization with his peers as a result of it. Scott's eventual path of study at the academy was determined through a mixture of happenstance and his father's influence his first year. He had occasion to observe a game of Go between two upperclassman, and had the temerity to offer his opinion on a winning strategy.

After working off his demerits, (earned for addressing two upperclassmen without being spoken to first) he was invited to play. Scott demonstrated a talent for strategy and tactics, and excelled at Go, Chess (two and three dimensional varieties) and more complex strategic simulations. Since his performance in his other subjects was average, he chose to concentrate on the classes that would allow him to opt for tactical or security work upon graduation. His first assignment was as an assistant security officer on Jupiter Station, as a supernumerary, where he was given the opportunity to work with experienced officers and get a sense of Starfleet protocol. There Scott got a firm grounding in the logistical aspects of being a security officer, and the necessity for a light hand when dealing with non-Starfleet personnel.

His years at Jupiter Station were followed by a stint as assistant to the tactical officer on the USS Nighthawk, a Saber-class starship, on one of her deep-space defense patrols. Although the Nighthawk had little need of an assistant Tactical officer, the assignment was intended to give Scott experience in the position on a working starship, in order to prepare him for future assignment. Scott acquitted himself well in both assignments, making few mistakes and asking for advice whenever he felt he was in uncharted territory. His evaluations were generally very good, with both of his supervising officers noting that Scott had a tendency to fail to delegate, and to spend a great deal of time studying the Starfleet manuals on correct protocol.

Otherwise, the evaluations noted that Scott seemed to have a knack for tactical situations, handled difficult personnel problems easily, and worked very diligently at his assignments. When the Nighthawk docked at Starbase 202 for re-supply, Scott was detached and assigned temporarily to the station security force while he awaited assignment to a starship. Scott was subsequently assigned to the USS Resolution, a Nova class scientific surveyor under the command of Captain Jayne Fury. Assigned as Chief of Security for this tiny ship, Scott acquitted himself well, and was eventually promoted to full Lieutenant, and assigned additional duties as Second Officer. He was trained in Command protocols by Commander Peeters, under Captain Fury's supervision. Upon the reassignment of Captain Fury and Captain Peeters, Scott continued to serve as Chief of Security under Captain Chapel.

Soon thereafter, however, the Resolution was retired from service, and Scott was assigned to the USS Erinys as Chief of Security, under Captain Tarryn. The assignment was welcomed by Scott, as it was an opportunity to serve on a much larger ship of the line, and afforded the chance for Scott to exercise his skills with a much larger crew, and correspondingly greater responsibilities. Scott served for some time as Chief of Security, and was eventually given additional responsibility as Second Officer.

Upon the destruction of the USS Erinys, Scott was transferred to Starfleet Command, where he underwent advanced coursework in Command protocols. He was then assigned as First Officer of the newly-commissioned USS Audax, a Steamrunner-class ship, under the command of Captain K'ylana Vilqa.

Scott was later promoted to Acting Captain, and assigned command of the USS Brisbane by Admiral T'Leva. The Brisbane's first mission was to the Haven system, there to investigate warp field signatures emanating from the planet, and to determine whether that race was eligible for First Contact.

Hobbies Scott enjoys playing any game related to strategy or tactics. He is also an avid reader, perusing the classics as well as histories whenever time permits. He enjoys music, although he does not play any instrument, nor can he sing, although this does not prevent him from joining in when he is in a mellow mood. Scott also exercises on a regular basis, running and utilizing resistance training to keep himself fit. He has studied several unarmed martial arts, though he has attained mastery in none of them. He still practices in his off hours. Scott also spends several hours a month practicing his phaser skills, and has an unorthodox technique. When he draws his phaser, his index finger is aligned with the emitter housing, rather than curled around the grip. This allows Scott to simply "point" at his target, and fire, allowing him improved accuracy in situations where it is not feasible to aim carefully. Thus, in quick draw situations, Scott is likely to fire the first shot, with a reasonable chance that the blast will strike some portion of the target.
Languages Standard Terran English Some Terran Spanish
