Siddhartha was born in San Francisco at the Star Fleet Academy Hospital a few days short of his parents’ one-year wedding anniversary. As his father was just beginning his studies, Sid spent his earliest years in close proximity to the Academy. His father would often combine studying and child-rearing, coaxing the young boy to sleep with passages from textbooks. Four years later, Sid’s father graduated and was assigned to the USS Erikson, a Columbus class scout ship captained by Captain Geoffrey Hollenbeck.
The crew of the Erikson was like an extended family to Sid, and, to some extent, he was quite the celebrity, especially among the female crewmembers. A trip to 10 Forward or the mess hall with one of his parents rarely ended without him being gifted some delicious treat or, at the very least, being fawned over by one of the ladies. When he was old enough, Captain Hollenbeck would personally stop by and take him on trips throughout the ship. To Sid, there wasn’t anything better than life aboard the Erikson.
However, after five years aboard the USS Erikson, Siddhartha’s comfy world was completely shattered by the death of his youngest sister Rani. During shore leave, his father had taken Rani fishing and over the course of the trip, she drowned. The family moved from the Erikson to the small rural town in India where his father had grown up. While it lacked many of the technological luxuries Sid had come to enjoy on the Erikson, the rural community did offer a new challenge; learning new languages. Within a year of living in India, Sid had become fluent in Hindi. His parents, recognizing his gift for language acquisition gave him every opportunity to learn as many languages as he could. He spent most of his time either from then on either engrossed in language study or engaged in sporting activities.
By the time he enrolled in the Academy at the age of 18, Siddhartha was fluent in numerous Earth languages, Klingon, and Vulcan, and was able to carry on a simple conversation in a dozen others. Academy classes left little time for language study, but, as there was a need for officers trained in Romulan, he took up the challenge and was nearly fluent by the time he graduated. In addition to the linguistic studies, he focused on security related skills, becoming proficient in marksmanship and hand-to-hand combat. Given his particular set of skills, he was assigned to Starbase Bravo as a security officer shortly after graduating and has been serving there for the past two years.
