Pre-Starfleet History

:

At Edinburgh University she met and married Donald Caskie. They had a son, Iain when Josh was 23. Not long after Iain was born Donald joined Starfleet as a Medical Officer and Josh took Iain back to Orkney to live with her family. She ended up joining one of the two main general medical practices on the main island and a year after coming back was asked, because of her background, to work as the main coroner for the islands. Given the amount of deaths on Orkney, this didn’t exactly entail much work or tax Josh but it did give her the ability to keep up with her forensic studies. Five years later, when Iain was six, Donald’s ship disappeared and was declared missing, presumed destroyed, reason unknown. Josh stayed on in Orkney with her family until Iain was ready to go to University. Since he was interested in Oceanography he enrolled at the Ballard Institute and once Iain had settled there Josh decided that she could move on and do something more with her life. She enrolled in Starfleet and has spent the last four years at the Academy.
