Personal History

Damian Coleman just couldn’t wait to get his start in life. While at a gig at Star Base One, playing bass guitar for a band, Banae Coleman went into labor. A complication with the birth meant that it became an emergency. Thankfully, both baby and mother came through, but the family decided to stay and get jobs as civilian contractors on the Star Base in case of any future issues.

For much of his youth, Damian grew up on the busy Star Base, often finding himself getting into all sorts of trouble with the other young kids with little better to do on a controlled station. While his parents held down day jobs, they also continued their musical careers, often taking gigs within the Sol system. For Damian, he wasn’t interested in such pursuits, and continued down a more physical path. School was rough for him, and his energy levels often led to him getting into trouble; messing with station systems was a favorite pastime for the hoodlum. It wasn’t until he stumbled upon a gym that specialized in boxing, that he found an outlet, and a mentor.

Bobby Gaetz, an old and peculiar man, took Damian in – giving him purpose with a job, and a focus through boxing. Where both Damian’s parents were relatively absent in his life, Gaetz ended up being almost like a surrogate father. As a challenge to the young man, Bobby suggested that Damian take a chance on something life changing.

At the age of seventeen, Damian went to Star Fleet Academy. His first year was the worst, with his grades being well under average. One of the Deans became involved and warned Coleman that should his grades not improve, he would be discharged. Damian worked hard, surrounding himself with an eccentric group of students who had specialties in many different backgrounds. That is where he met his best friend, Tykn th’Zora – an Andorian student who enjoyed a good fight as much as Damian did. Coleman’s grades improved enough to stop him from being a wash out, and he found a niche where he fit in, with Security.

Damian was first stationed aboard the USS Apgar, a hospital auxiliary ship. During a mission to contain a plague outbreak, Damien was shipped out to guard the medical team equipped with a vaccine developed on the Apgar. The shuttlecraft encountered trouble while in atmospheric descent, when the EPS system became damaged. With a background in ship’s systems in his youth and the Academy, Coleman sprung into action, helping to reroute the electro-plasma flow, stabilizing the shuttle’s systems and preventing a catastrophic outcome.

Later in his career, he served aboard the USS Atlanta under Captain Peck. After several incidents aboard the Atlanta, Peck started an investigation into his own crew believing a saboteur to be aboard. At the height of the investigation, a mutiny nearly occurred due to Peck’s lack of tact, and general combative personality. In order to prevent this, and despite his own moral feelings about it, Damien hacked into the crew’s personal logs under orders from Captain Peck, eventually catching the perpetrator, and preventing further conflict. The incident was covered up by Peck, and Damian’s role never revealed to crew or Star Fleet. However, Coleman couldn’t agree to stay with Peck, and so requested a transfer.
