Commander Sel

Known for his impeccable decorum and attention to detail, Commander Sel is currently serving as the Chief Tactical/ Security Officer on the USS Diligent.

History

Sel was born on Vulcan to D’Var and T’sellin, both Scientists with the Vulcan Science Academy.

He was raised in a traditional Vulcan household, his parents spent a good deal of time attending to their work, and his First Paternal Foremother Velea spent time teaching the infant the Vulcan way.

At age 2, Sel was enrolled in Formative schooling to help develop his senses and cognitive ability. In this stage of education, likened to Nursery School, Vulcan children were encouraged to dance to express themselves.He excelled , and continued his schooling to advance levels. Eventually moving on to the Learning Centre, where he studied alongside other Vulcan children.

When he was 15 years old, Sel’s parents along with ten other scientists were killed in a red matter explosion triggered during field testing near he outer rim. Sel made the decision to follow his parents and study at the Vulcan Science Academy.

His time at the Science Academy was hectic as Sel also pursued Kolinahr. He took to reading famous literature from different cultures in his free time and found an appreciation for Cardassian continuing epics.

When time came for his graduation his Foremother urged him to follow logic and take a posting with the Vulcan Expeditionary Group, where she thought he could flourish and grow. Sel agreed, viewing it at the logical decision, and applied to the group.

Sel began a career with the Expeditionary Group as a Sub-Lieutenant aboard the Vulcan Ship D’Argo, a vessel studying astral phenomena near Andor. Sel was quickly promoted to Lieutenant and Section Lead because of meritorious service.

Soon the Vulcan man was assigned to the Listening Post at Yedrin III, as a senior technician. He accepted the role with dignity, and helped to bring the Post up to the standards of the Expeditionary Group.

With this service under his belt Sel was offered a position in Starfleet. He Enrolled in a Direct Entry Program, given his service he was not required to attend the full Academy programming.

He was assigned to the USS Triumphant as Chief Tactical Officer with the rank of Lieutenant. The Triumphant was assigned to patrol the Romulan border. The assignment was quiet, and allowed Sel to pursue additional Starfleet courses in Diplomacy, Engineering and take his Bridge Officer examination.

Sel was transferred to the USS Georgia, where he served at the ship’s Chief Engineer for eight satisfactory years.

The Vulcan man, in an attempt to broaden his skills, applied for transfer to the Starship Design Bureau. He helped design the engines for several prototype ships.

Feeling he had gathered the knowledge he’d been after, he requested to transfer to an operational role and was assigned as Chief Operations Officer on Starbase 217.

While aboard the station a Diligent Class Ship, the USS Diligent came in need of a capable Tactical Officer and Sel was transferred to serve on the ship. Having worked on the Diligent Class development project, he was an ideal candidate.
