Born in San Francisco, California, Phoenix is the son of Hannah and Jack Carter. Hannah supports Star Fleet in everything it does, but she would never set foot on a starship. Instead, Hannah travels to schools recruiting new cadets. She is also an avid astronomer. Jack is a Star Fleet engineer who works in the various shipyards above the planet. Jack wanted to name his son after the famous ship built by Zefram Cochrane on April 5, 2063. After much debate, Hannah finally agreed.
On Phoenix’s twelfth birthday, Jack took him to the Smithsonian Institute. There, Phoenix met up with his namesake. Mesmerized by significance of a modified missile, Phoenix decided he wanted to join Star Fleet and contribute what he could to the advancement of humanity’s destiny in the galaxy.
With this goal in mind, Phoenix excelled in science classes. He scored high marks in astronomy and astrophysics.
At the age of eighteen, Phoenix applied early for Star Fleet Academy. His high scores in science, plus his father’s involvement in Star Fleet, made him an optimal candidate for Star Fleet’s science program.
In the Academy, Phoenix double majored in physics and astronomy courses. He specialized in astrophysics and spatial anomalies. As electives, he took courses in designing conceptual technologies.

Personal Paradigm Shifts
Most Painful Experience: Phoenix entered every science fair his schools offered. At his last fair, he tried to recreate the asteroid extinction event experienced by the dinosaurs. The glass containing the impact force had been sabotaged by a jealous classmate, and Phoenix broke an arm and inhaled a large amount of dust as the container was destroyed on his side. He spent the entire summer vacation in a hospital to clear his body of the acidic environment generated by the blast. This almost prevented Phoenix from entering the Academy
Best Time: Phoenix was surprised on his twelfth birthday with a trip to the Smithsonian Institute. There, Jack Carter introduced Phoenix to his namesake. Phoenix was so mesmerized by the first warp ship that he didn’t even want to see the rest of the museum. After much convincing, he did see the rest of the Institute. His father had one more surprise for him. Somehow, Phoenix was allowed to see the inner workings of the ship and even sit in Cochrane’s chair. This experience was the catalyst for Phoenix’s desire to join Star Fleet
Most Crucial Experience: The hospital stay following the science fair. Phoenix had almost given up hope on Star Fleet. His arm had healed, but he had trouble breathing. He knew he might have a jealous colleague in Star Fleet and feared a similar event might take place. Phoenix’s father, Jack, is a Star Fleet Engineer working on the drydocks. Jack spent all his free time sitting in the hospital with son and telling him about all the accidents he had working in the engine rooms of countless ships. If it wasn’t for this series of talks, Phoenix might never have gone to the Academy that year
Role Model: His father, Jack Carter. Jack always encouraged his son’s tinkering, even when his wife didn’t approve. The surprise trip to see the Phoenix warp ship and all the time Jack spent with his son in the hospital gave Phoenix the motivation to serve in Star Fleet
