Personality & Traits

General Overview While outwardly he looks like a young teen, Dash hardly thinks of himself as a kid. Almost always cheerful and with a smile on his face, few would ever believe the things he's seen and experienced in four centuries. He is friendly and outgoing but has only a few people that he would consider close.
Strengths & Weaknesses Long life and studying with Vulcan masters has given him wisdom beyond most, and traveling around the Federation has allowed him to learn many things. He has a strong sense of right and wrong and is deeply loyal. He can be impulsive and headstrong.
Ambitions The natural curiosity of a child drives him to want to see what else is out there, beyond the Federation.
Hobbies & Interests Dash has developed a wide range of hobbies over the years, including gymnastics, swimming, surfing, hiking, snowboarding, holoprograms, sports (baseball, lacrosse, hockey, golf, Parrises squares, water polo) and rock climbing. He has also recently taken a liking to the Vulcan game kal-toh. He has mastered several martial skills, including karate, krav maga, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Tai chi. He trained with famed Vulcan Master K'Than in the art of Suus Mahna.

Personal History Dash was born in 1952 on Earth. In the 1960's, scientists attempting to extend cellular life inadvertantly created the Life Prolongation Complex, a virus that infected the planet's population. While it had its intended effect of extending the natural lifespans of the children, it quickly killed the adults around the world. In the aftermath of this tragedy, Dash -- like many of the other surviving children -- began to call himself an "Only", and banded together with others to scavenge amongst the abandoned cities. Sometime during the next 300 years, the planet drifted through a quantum fissure into the 70 Ophiucus star system of a parallel universe, and in the year 2266 was discovered by the Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise. Dash's gang of Onlies was found by a group of Starfleet officers that had come to take care of the children, and they were taken back to the newly-founded Miran Institute, a place for all of the remaining children to go to be re-educated. It was there that he met Doctor Ian Wilder, one of the Institute's professors, who took him in and became like a father to him.

In the 2280's Dash returned to the Earth of this universe with Ian, where he took an interest in gymnastics. He represented Earth in seven Olympic Games throughout the late 23rd and early 24th centuries, winning numerous gold medals. During this time he also attended Duke University, where he earned doctorates in Marine Biology, Oceanography and Xenobiology. After retiring from active competion, he spent time on Pacifica, Risa and Alpha Centauri, before going to Vulcan to study with the Vulcan Masters. While on Vulcan, he applied and was accepted into the Vulcan Science Academy, a rare feat for a non-Vulcan, and earned degrees in Astrophysics. In 2368, Dash entered Starfleet Academy, graduating at the top of his class, however he was placed on reserve status and never given an assignment. His whereabouts during this time are unknown.

In 2394, his status was finally changed to active, and he was assigned to the U.S.S. Valiant.
Service Record Will be completed upon assignment.
