Summary

Peter Crawford is an operations officer onboard the USS Denver and graduated from Starfleet Academy in March of 2374, two months early.  He is driven to explore and experience space as a child of a family who spurned technology in most of its forms.  There is an innate desire in him to learn everything he can and explore the universe in order to understand his place in it.

Appearance

Peter is 5’10 with dark brown hair.  His eyes are green, and he’s fairly unassuming to look at.

Has a scar on his leg from a farming accident when he was 10.  Depending on the day and his mood his beard will be shaved, rough, or nearly full.

Personality

Peter is driven by a desire to succeed in his future with Starfleet.  His parents were not supportive of his choice and he wants nothing short of their approval.  He sees this as his chance to make something of himself that isn’t connected to his family’s ranch and history.  He is optimistically pessimistic most of the time and has a habit of sarcasm and biting wit at times.  Given that most of his life was spent at home, he tends to be a loner most of the time.  Through the four years of the academy, he slowly has come out of his shell but  Deep desire to learn.

He is an only child. A rancher by trade, he enjoys holodeck programs where he can spend time back home without leaving his assignment. Horseriding and the wide-open spaces of Montana are where he goes to relax.

History

Early Life (2354-2370)


Runamuck Ranch, Roundup, MT

Peter was born on April 1st,  2354 in Roundup, MT to Jeremy and Patricia Crawford.  They own the Crawford Ranch just ten minutes outside Roundup.  The land has been in the family since 2022 when it was sold to them by their long-time friends, the Dahls.  The Dahls and the Crawfords both had eschewed technology and its application on the ranch.  That tradition continues today.  Peter has always pushed back on that tradition and it has been a constant point of contention with his parents and extended family who live on the spacious ranch with over 10,000 acres.

He worked on the ranch since he was 7 years old.  When he was ten, he nearly lost his leg in a farming accident but the doctors were able to save it.  He still experiences mild phantom pains.  Peter attended the local school and grew into a gifted thinker and reader who loved to work on the farm equipment with a manual in one hand and a tool in the other.  He graduated from Roundup High School at 16 in May of 2370 and immediately enrolls in Starfleet Academy.  His parents do not support him and do not assist him in his application or move.  Peter attempts to convince them but they argue and he leaves without reconciliation.  They are estranged from this point forward.

Starfleet Academy (2370-2374)


Peter enters Starfleet on his own and throws himself into his studies.  He initially expresses interest in engineering but changes his focus to operations after a chance encounter with an Operations Chief from an orbiting starship.  He tries to build connections with his fellow cadets, but his age is often a barrier or simply a nuisance.  Through it all, Peter remains convinced of his dream to join Starfleet and seek out his future in space.  His second year is a repeat of his first and he puts his head into books and studies as much about operations and engineering as he can in his spare time.  In his third year he is invited to a study group of fellow operations cadets and forms friendships that become an anchor for him as he continues to learn, train, and push forward in his education.  He grows especially close to a girl, Kacy Tran.  They are soon in a relationship that lasts through his final and fourth year at the academy.  They consider marriage but Kacy admits her family wishes her to marry someone more traditional.  They part ways amicably but are heartbroken at the reality. Peter graduates early from the academy in February 2374 and is assigned to the USS Denver.

USS Denver (2374-Present)


Peter is assigned as a Chief Operations Officer to the USS Denver on February 26, 2374, as an Ensign.  He was promoted to full Lieutenant by Captain Talon on March 24, 2374, in a battlefield promotion.  Captain Talon cited his leadership skills and performance on the mission.
