Personal History

Alec was born on Isle of Skye, Scotland in the town of Portree to Alice and Angus Wallace, a few years later his brother Duff joined the family. Alec’s mother taught secondary school and his father Angus was a well-known shipwright renowned for sailing and fishing vessel construction. Growing up on the Isle provided Alec with many happy and fond memories. His childhood and teenage years were both rewarding and enjoyable. When Alec wasn’t fishing or sailing with his brother, the two boys could be found helping their father in his shipyard. However, as much as he loved the sea and sailing vessels, Alec loved space and star ships even more. So it was no surprise when he joined Star Fleet and attended the Academy. The love of Alec’s life, Mary and he waited until after his graduation from the Academy to marry. Over the past 30 years, through wars, long deployments and far off postings, their love never wavered. Together, they have two sons, Ian and Duncan.

After graduation from the Academy, Alec was posted to Deep Space Nine to help in its conversion to Star Base Charlie. It was there that he and Mary fell in love with Bajor and Bajorian culture. After spending five years on Star Base Charlie, Alec was then assigned to the USS Titan while Mary and their young son Ian moved off the station to live on Bajor. When the First General War broke out, a pregnant Mary and Ian moved back to Isle of Skye. When the war ended, Alec was then assigned to the Antares Ship Yards near Bajor to assist in designing new star ships to compensate for short comings discovered in Star Fleet vessels during the First General War. To his delight Alec is joined by Mary, Ian and the newest member of the family, Duncan. After six years at Antares ship yard, Alec was then assigned as Chief Engineer of the USS Pulsar when the Second Federation/Romulan war broke out. Mary and the boys returned home to Skye. After serving three years on the Pulsar, Alec accepts promotion as First Officer to the USS Clark, Mary and the children continued to live on Skye.

While serving on the Clark, Alec and a few other fortunate crew members escape death when their ship is destroyed by an unknown alien race when the aliens invade Federation Space. Though the ship is destroyed, Alec is praised and received a commendation for saving as many crew members as possible. He is then promoted and given command of the USS Excelsior. Much to his delight, Mary joins Alec aboard the Excelsior, however; the boys decided to remain in Scotland to attend school. Three years later, Alec is promoted to Commodore and put in charge of the Antares Ship Yards. When Inquisition forces invade nearly four years later, Alec and Mary are in Portree attending Angus’ funeral who had died suddenly. Alec struggled with the double blow of not only losing his father but also the loss of the shipyard, Star Base Charlie, Bajor and other Federation facilities.

Without a command or an assignment, Alec took a short leave of absence to spend time with Mary and family in Scotland. An assignment finally became available that was suited for his talents and Alec is offered and accepts the position making him Deputy Commander of Star Base Alpha.
