Born in Canada, Robinson is one of the many young officers who works in the administrative offices of Starbase 38, often serving as a personal yeoman to the station's most senior officers.

The youngest of six brothers, he grew up on the family orchard outside of Toronto, a sprawling stand of apple trees nestled between vast, rolling fields of corn.

In high school, Robinson followed in his brothers’ footsteps and played on both the hockey and lacrosse teams. While he shared their natural athleticism, he had begun to resent always being in their shadow and so attempted to branch out and break from their example.
