Personal History

Ever since a young age, David McCullum had a penchant for two things: flying and getting in to trouble. As a teenager he made sure to get his primary pilot’s license as soon as he could possibly under Federation guidelines. From there he was hooked. His natural feel for astronavigation and relative bodies in a vacuum made him a very likely candidate for Starfleet Academy. That was, he could’ve been a great candidate for Starfleet Tactical Command if he could do things like follow orders, not goof off, and generally take him seriously. After a particularly hedgy incident with the colony governor’s homestead, he was given a choice: lose his pilot’s license or enlist…he chose the latter.

The Starfleet Marine Corps did exactly what local government hoped it would: it set David straight. At least it did initially. Learning that he would need to be the best of the best, David got his act together and began rising through the ranks before he finally got shuffled through Officer Candidate School and earned his fighter wings. David was a natural, earning the call sign “Mack” before he shuffled through dozens of squadron commands and engagements. Earning a campaign medal for the both Romulan Wars as well as the wars against the Borg and the Krynar, “Mack” continued to prove his prowess and skill by earning multiple Aces throughout each campaign. His career pinnacled after being names CAG for the USS Empire in the Fifth fleet, which was the moment he announced his pending retirement. His wife, Wendy, had contracted a severe case of Iverson’s disease. “Mack” spent the last few years with his wife before she passed. She had been with him nearly every step of the way, many times putting herself in danger to follow him on his assignments. Ultimately “Mack” gave her the time away she needed and now finds himself on the cusp of not knowing what to do with himself everyday.
