He was “born” on September 21st 2189. His only “family” were the doctor and a kind engineer. His own love for engineering propelled him towards a career in Starfleet. When he became of age he left for Starfleet Academy and came back out in a little less than 3 years. His first assignment was on the USS Shepard in 2209 as the Assistant to the Chief Engineer. On that 10 year mission he got a promotion to Lieutenant. His next assignment was on the USS Walker as the Chief Engineer. Which he stayed on until 2236 when he transferred over to the USS Columbia and became the first officer (he was a commander by then). He fought at the Battle of the Binary Stars and got out alive (obviously). He served on the Columbia until 2276 when he when back to Earth for a long needed vacation (he was 87 by then). While he was there he met his best friend Rez. Rez convinced him to try out command and he did. Rez would later serve with him on the USS Anaconda on which Rez was the Chief Tactical Officer and Ketrin was the Captain (2280-2300). He self-transferred back to Earth and joined the Starfleet Engineering Core. He didn’t accept a promotion to Rear Admiral because he didn’t want to sit at a desk for the rest of his life.
While he worked for the Core he worked on multiple ships including but not limited to the Centaur class, 2 Miranda refits, and the Galaxy class. He was also designing his own ship who’s name was based on an old Earth ground vehicle called the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R, though the car was a little more blunt than the sleek curves of this ship. He was just waiting for the right time to show it.
On a late night in 2399 he was out with the now Captain Rez and another Commander Daniel. He was telling Daniel about how he eats with a visor when he just gives up trying, drops his Visor down into the spaghetti (no sauce) that he was eating, and groans. “You’re doing this on purpose aren’t you?” He said, “Ooooh yeah” said Daniel in a very amused tone. He picks his head back up and starts laughing. “You got me going there for a minute there hehe” he said. After a few minutes of conversation he said that he was designing a multipurpose starship, he asked if they wanted to help seeing as Rez was a tactician and Daniel was a great pilot, he could use their help. They said yes of course, who wouldn’t want to help design a starship? To celebrate, Ketrin played and sang with them “Great Balls of Fire” by Jerry Lee Lewis on a 400 year old piano that was at his house. They had great fun that night and it’s one that they’ll hopefully never forget.

Name: IDA5TR0 or Ketrin “Astro” Williams | DOB: 9/21/2189 | Gender: Male | Sexuality: Pan | Status: Active He is a valiant engineer and a great pilot. He is kind unless you get on his bad side. He likes ramen noodles, warmth, trekking stars, piano, aerospace engineering, quantum physics/engineering, warp core dynamics, piloting, and warp drive. He is a very fluffy protogen (bad idea to pet him). His underbelly marking goes from the bottom of his visor, goes all of the way down and wraps around to his lo ((I’m debating on wether or not I should put a few paragraphs worth of stuff on his chestplate and leg armor)) ((Also the rank types are glitching for the service record portion, he is a engineer until his Captaincy and back to engineering when he joins the Starfleet Engineering Core))
