Lieutenant Austin Carver

Carver is gregarious and outgoing, with a personality that instantly puts other people at ease. He is in phenomenally good shape and likes to use physical exercise as a counseling technique, especially sports.

History

Austin Carver was born on Earth’s North American continent in New York City on July 10, 2369. He was always an athletic child and he had a happy, quiet childhood. As all Earth children were, however, he was shaped by the Borg attack in 2373, the Breen attack in 2375, and the destruction of Mars in 2385. All of these events drove him to join Starfleet, knowing that he wanted to help people.

After taking placement exams and discussing his future with career counselors, Carver selected a major in psychology and biology, rationalizing that at the end of his tenure at the academy he would be qualified either to continue into medical school or to enter the fleet directly as a science officer. As he progressed through this track, though, he realized that counseling was going to be a better fit for him than either of those other options.

Upon his graduation as an Ensign, Carver entered the four-year psychiatry program at Starfleet Medical Academy, after which he became a fully-qualified ship’s counselor and psychiatrist. His first posting as a junior lieutenant was as a counselor on the exploratory vessel Ganymede, which was assigned to the Delta Quadrant. He enjoyed working with a very diverse crew and being part of the exploration of one of the furthest frontiers, especially when it came to first contacts.

After three years, though, he began to become more and more stressed without live communication with his family, so he requested a transfer back to the Alpha Quadrant. This was granted, and in 2398 he became a counselor at Starbase 38, where he could help crews returning from the Delta Quadrant and use his expertise on the species native to that quadrant on a first-hand basis.
