Pre-Starfleet History

:

His father's work fascinated Jake who is an only child and he was prone to constantly questioning him on the equipment he worked with. Spacedock Phoenix is a military facility so in a way it helped lure him into StarFleet since he was determined that one day he himself would walk around upon it and see its wonders for himself. He naturally gravitated therefore to the mechanical and technical vocations, earning an undergraduate degree in Electrical engineering before diving into the Academy with gusto. His parents still live on Mars.

Starfleet History
