Cadet Freshman Grade Joe Finnigan
Joseph Finnigan (Finn) has loved airplanes and flying since he was old enough to climb into the seat of a plane. Joe takes after a family ancestor who flew late 20th century, early 21st century combat aircraft off the decks of sea going aircraft carriers for at the time what was the United States Navy. In his teen years, Joe earned his junior pilots license. As soon as he was able, Joseph joined up with Starfleet to be a junior pilot, so he could fly fighter aircraft, either from some type of planetary base, or off of a space faring aircraft carrier.
Neither of Joe’s parents, (mom Rebecca or dad Justin) had the flying bug like Joseph did. But, mom Rebecca recognized the urges in her son. She remembered her own father being the same way, happiest in the air flying some type of aircraft. Typically quiet and introverted on most situations, Joe lights up around aircraft and when flying. He becomes a complete extrovert in that environment.
Joe sees flying as his career path, wherever that may take him. For an ultimate career goal, Joe would love to command an air group or air wing of his own some day. But, he knows that he wouldn’t want to take a high job, if it meant being behind a desk moving paper, instead of being in the air. Someday, Joseph hopes to find the love of his life, get married and settle down. At that phase of his life, he sees himself flying civilian shuttles, ferrying passengers around, or something like that. But, he knows whenever his career paths take him, it has to be in a plane.
