Personal History

Christian was born and raised on the USS Sheffield along with his sister Amy they were both liked by the crew and the Captain as there were not that many children on the Sheffield. While Amy preffered to spend time with their mother learning how to fly, Christian spent all his time with their father either tinkering with the old motorcycle engines or in later years in the engine room. The time with his father left him with a life long fascination with machinery and he would often take things apart just to put them back together. It was also during this time he developed his dislike for the ferengi as several deals with them for parts turned out to be far too expensive.

On his 14th Birthday, Christian was working alongside a Junior Engineer on a shuttle when there was a plasma rupture and the engineer pushed Grix clear and sealed the bay behind him. Christian never really recovered from this and his greatest fear stems from this moment. His Father was reluctant to let him work in the engine room again but the boy's insistence that he was allowed back and worked along side him and many engineers as they worked on the ship's systems.

The years passed quickly and when the 17 year old Christian visited Betazed he met and fell in love with Zaira Morgan the half Beatzoid daughter of the Earth Ambassador, they got on really well and had a very passionate affair until the day she told him that her mother had promised her to one of the rulers of the 7 houses sons. In an instant Christian had lost the woman he had thought he would spend his life with. He had fallen for her as they had spent time together originally just as friends but then as they got closer a kiss and more until they both realised they were in love. To be told it was over because of the arrangement didn't help and Christian was devastated, being told she still loved him didn't help and he left not only as soon as he could but after telling her he hoped she was happy but he never wanted to see her again. He left with the girl in tears and made his way to the tree and the bench they used to sit and talk on.

The 18 year old Chris then took a string of jobs on freighters as he tried to cure his broken heart with Whiskey and other women in an effort to forget her, Finally at the age of 22 he was accepted to Starfleeet Academy and enrolled as an Engineering Cadet. On the shuttle to the academy he met and started talking to the man who would eventually over years become his best friend Mike Horbitz.
