Lieutenant Alex Mitchell

Liueutenant Alexander Mitchell is a pilot recently assigned to the U.S.S. Hypatia as her Chief Flight Control Officer.


Alexander James Mitchell, AJ to his family, was born in Baltimore, Maryland to parents who were both Starfleet Medical Officers. His parents were loving, but often one or the other was absent due to the demands of their Starfleet Careers. While they had hopes of his following them into the medical profession, even if he didn’t join Starfleet, Xander knew that a medical career wasn’t for him. Instead he developed an interest in flying from an early age and as he grew older knew that a career in Starfleet would provide the best opportunity for that.

From an early age Alexander knew that he wanted to fly starships. He was briefly drawn towards the idea of being a fighter pilot but a tour of the Galaxy-class Starship that his mother commanded persuaded him that flying capital ships was what he wanted to do.

When he was in high school, he decided to teach himself to play the guitar and while he enjoys playing it to unwind, he isn’t confident enough in his abilities to play in front of others.

He was always, and continues to be, fiercely protective of his younger sisters. While he found them annoying at times, especially when he was trying to spend some alone time with boyfriends during his later teenage years, he loves both sisters deeply and would do anything for them.

When he turned 18 in 2374, with the Dominion War just getting started, Xander applied to Starfleet Academy and was accepted, beginning the journey towards his ultimate goal. He found adapting to the more rigid life in Starfleet fairly easy and excelled in flight school.

With the war raging, Alexander wanted to be out there fighting but the younger cadets were kept away from the fighting. Near the end of the war, the Breen attacked Starfleet Headquarters. The cadets were mobilized in the aftermath, Alex was assigned to fly rescue shuttles.

Alexander graduated from Starfleet Academy in 2378 with a bachelor’s degree in propulsion systems engineering and was commissioned an Ensign.

Newly commissioned Ensign Mitchell was assigned to the Nova-class starship U.S.S. Aurora as a junior Flight Control Officer and Shuttle Pilot. Assigned to Delta Shift, Alexander didn’t find the work particularly challenging, but he thoroughly enjoyed it. Six months after his graduation, Alexander began taking a distance learning course in law outside of his normal duties. He completed that course in 2384 and since then has taken on additional legal duties as and when required.
