Personal History

When he was a child Zhodaar wanted to be a Captain like his father, he thought it would be easy with his size and strength he could easily take what he wanted when he wanted. Despite his strength and skill, he never developed the type of leadership qualities necessary for command. Not satisfied with the idea that he wasn’t good enough he trained harder becoming even more physically dominant and yet it still wasn’t enough for the Confederation Defense Force (CDF). They saw him and his effort to be more in line with the Saurischia. Lost, Zhodaar turned to his father for guidance only to be told that he the CDF obviously saw him for what he was a dull-witted grunt, more suited to charging into combat than leading troops.

Dejected and hurt by the prospect of never being anything more than a grunt Zhodaar left the Gorn Confederation after being rejected from the command tract and emigrated to Sauria and got a job at a restaurant. It was there that he met Lazel and his love of food. With Lazel he learned to appreciate all the unique flavors and textures Saurian cuisine had to offer. Zhodaar knew that if he could stay on Sauria and could become a chef himself eventually. However, Zhodaar had a yearning for more, a yearning to discover new dishes and new flavors, and boldly explore the universe adding to his personal recipe book for a day that he might open his own restaurant.

With urging of Lazel Zhodaar found himself applying to Starfleet academy and being surprised to be accepted. While he studied his classes to the best of his abilities, he also studied the different styles of cuisine from Earth. And yet, despite his best efforts not to, he still found himself trying to earn the opportunity to take command only to be remined that he isn’t as intelligent as the other cadets. He almost didn’t qualify to take the final exam and was approached several times during his final year by Starfleet recruiters encouraging Zhodaar to accept a guarantied enlistment in Security instead of risking flunking out of the Academy. Yet somehow, he was just barely able to qualify to take the final exam and pass graduating in the lower half of his graduating class.

Since Graduating from the academy Zhodaar was been under the command of Captain Simmons. His first mission was the last of the USS Ozaki, during the battle with the Borg Megasphere he tried to punch through the defenses of a Borg vessel with two overloaded torpedoes and caused the destruction of a Starfleet ship when the first torpedo destroyed the Borg vessel allowing the second to fly by and critically strike a Federation ship, destroying it. He was able to pull himself together with Simmon's help and launched the Ozaki's complement of Tri-cobalt devices at the Megasphere bringing it down. However, the Borg were able to get one more shot off as a high powered particle beam gutted the Ozaki. In the chaos Zhodaar stabilized the ship just enough to allow escape pods to eject safely, but in the process a bulkhead came loose and broke his arm.

When the Nikola Tesla was deployed on its madden voyage nothing of note happened, the planet they were sent to study was routine. It only bears note in that this was the first time Zhodaar was sent on an away mission.

On the Nightingale, Zhodaar was again sent with the away team, where he was able to coordinate with Jensen to track down the Romulan infiltrator.
