Personal History

Born in the small town of Galargambone (Gal-ar-gam-bone) in the Australian 'outback', Jack was to be named after his father, John, but to distinguish the two his mother insisted on calling him, Jack. Jack's very first memories were dreaming of travelling the Galaxy. He wasn't interested in early school, desiring to play and learn from his Indigenous friends, the aboriginal people and Elders of his community. They taught the Aboriginal celestial guild, constellation like the seven sisters (Orion) and the Big Emu a large dark patch shaped like an emu stretched out across the Milky Way.

Jack, although not interested in school, when he put his mind to it, showed great academic promise, and was sent to boarding school at age 10. After a long first year full of homesickness, Jack met and form a lifelong friendship with another boarder, David Mason and from then on he loved his independent life through his boarding school to university years. He never stopped dreaming of travelling the galaxy. In 2409 he entered Star-Fleet Academy to pursue his dream of travelling the Galaxy. Graduating in 2413 he was assigned to the USS Intrepid under Captain Archer.

Jack's first mission was a water planet that had only one above water city and one island. He was on the away team that discovered mass graves on the island which turned out to be a second intelligent species of that world. During their investigations several Officers including Jack where taken captive and he was injured.

The Intrepid investigating a system with two inhabited planets, one with industrial capabilities and the other with space-faring capabilities. Intrepid found herself in another fight and a moral dilemma involving the prime directive. The industrial planet suffering a plague which turned out to be deliberately caused by a bio-weapons dealer who used the planet as a demonstration. Intrepid was able to arrest the spread of the disease losing some of her own officers to the disease in the process. Jack was unscathed.

Jack transferred to the USS Hood. The Hood was ordered to track a pirate group operating near the Cardassian border. When the pirate ship was discovered the Hood engaged the ship in battle after several attempts to persuade them to surrender peaceably. During the battle, two other pirate ship of the same group joined the affray and drove the Hood into Cardassian space where it was attacked by a Cardassian border patrol. The ship was boarded but Jack, with several other crew was instrumental in repelling the Cardassian borders. The Hood narrowly escaped destruction but was badly damaged. During this battle, Jack was seriously injured.

The injuries Jack suffered where treated on the Hood but due to the lack of power and damaged systems, the Sickbay on the Hood lost power for 3 minutes during Jack's life-saving surgery. The result was that Jack suffered neurological damage and began to present with the symptoms of PTS. There are some things that medical science can not fix. That's why Jack chose not to have his limp repaired. He carries it as a badge of honour for surviving PTS.

Jack underwent counselling and Star Fleet, through its rehabilitation programs, offered Jack a teaching position at the Academy which he readily accepted.
