History, Education and Skills

Family and Background


Gregory was born in Southern England, where he spent much of his time taking things apart and putting them back together much to the chagrin of his parents. When he wasn't actively engaged in tinkering, he was active in the outdoors, camping, swimming and those other activities a young lad was inclined to do. In school, he was an average student, excelling in math and sciences, but would often ignore those classes he felt were mundane. By the time he was 17, he had two patents to his name on improvments he had made in his tinkering. It was on the strength of that work and his high test scores that he was able to travel to the US and attend college.

Pre-Starfleet History


Gregory attended MIT, with the goal of becoming a commercial engineer. However, he was quickly enamored with quantum mechanics and in particular the impact of particles in and around the warp barrier. His advisor, a former Star Fleet Engineer helped guide his studies, including 6 months at the Daystrom Institute working on his theories of tachyons. After graduation, he decided to enlist in Star Fleet, where he excelled at all the engineering courses while performing reasonably well in operations. While not a pacifist, he found tactics and security courses to be dull and boring. He graduated with honors in Engineering.

Medical History


Has a dislike of psychological evaluations and those who administer them. He'll grudgingly go to the Councilors when ordered but gives them a wide berth otherwise. He has scars from various misadventures in climbing and other outdoor activities but nothing specific of note. Each one has a story behind it, that Gregory is happy to share.



Gregory is by nature, a tinkerer. He loves to work with his hands and enjoy's building gadgets to make his work easier. He is a level-headed problem solver when it comes to particles, warp theory and practice. He routinely tinkers to get improvements in the scanners, the engines, and the like. He has a good ear, and while not musically inclined, knows all the sounds in engineering and has been known to say that he 'heard' a problem before it became an issue. He has average skills when it comes to weapons, other than basic hand-to-hand. Phasers are tools to be used to cut things, not shoot at people. He feels helmsmen and navigators are nothing more than button pushers whose livelihood is to break his starship.



Happy to provide writing samples of past adventures.



Off duty, he is fond of gambling, because chance reminds him of the quantum world. He is an obsessive runner, spending an hour a day running the decks. He is also an avid climber and rower. He can be found on off-duty climbing the mountains of the universe or rowing the rivers.

Gregory noticed that the Captain had joined in the fun. If his getting drenched would help the ships morale, he was all for it. “Come on Captain, let's see what ya got,” he started calling out. “Bet those pirates have better aim than you. Just remember the point is to hit the target.”. His arm was rock steady as he found a comfortable grip on the ball in his right hand. He was aware that a number of the crew were beginning to gather around in anticipation. They spoke in low voices as he gathered himself for the throw.
