USS Galahad (Archive)


Cimozjen Nathaniel Kurios




Kurios is the very image of an older man, in that is he very set in his way and very rigid in his approaches. Whereas some might find an unbending nature to be a detriment, Kurios is firmly committed to the success of a mission, at whatever associated costs that might make. Having come into Starfleet at an older age than most officers, he also felt a greater need to prove himself. As such, Kurios tends to charge into a conflict or problem headlong both figuratively and sometimes literally. Despite obstacles such as his limp or his relative age, he feels the skills that he brings to the table are more than worth the trouble.


Cimozjen is a Trill of about six feet tall. His icy-blue eyes and pale skin are framed brown hair and  the series of spots, typical of his species, that line either side of his face. He is mostly an unremarkable example of a non-joined Trill. One notable issue he experiences is that he walks with a notable limp.


Cimozjen is if nothing else, grumpy. He speaks his mind with almost disgusting frankness. He expects excellence of himself as much as he does the officers around him. His attitude is that anyone who becomes a danger to the crew or the success of a mission is better left behind or cast aside. Thankfully, this doesn’t quite extend to literally throwing people aside, but Kurios’ ways have a way of grating the nerves of those around him. Those who meet this haughty officer’s own standards will find a helpful, if mildly caustic, friend.


Education Background (3377-2389)

Kurios found a fascination within the medical field. Whereas the field of medical science had continued to evolve and grow, it never failed to amaze him how hardy the human body had proven. Unable to shake that sense of wonder at a young age, the young man entered college. He tackled courses covering a myriad of subjects, taking on courses far above and beyond those required by his degree to the point that he graduated from undergraduate studies with a major in both Biology and in Biochemistry.

He would approach Medical School with a similar drive, though he became more jaded towards the sense of wonder as the secrets of the body were laid bare before him. As a young, hopeful medical student, Kurios found himself at odds with his fellow students. Although some of the shine was gone from his eyes, Kurios was highly successful in his studies. Like his undergraduate degree, he came out with near-top grades, and a specialty in infectious disease and biochemistry. He served his residency at the San Fransisco Medical Center.

Private Practice (2389- mid 2391)

Doctor Kurios would go into private practice for the next two. Little of note occurred during this period, save that the poor doctor felt himself becoming disillusioned. He quickly found himself unhappy being a doctor in the paradise of Federation Earth. Though he did some research into alternative medicine for a few months, much of his time was spent reading medical texts or even reading trashy books. The work itself could be rewarding in its own way, but without any challenge Doctor Kurios was slowly sliding into a deep depression. A doctor better served in a place besides paradise. At his darkest moments, he decided to turn his sights towards the stars.

Early Starfleet Service (2391-2400)

Stories of frontier medicine in early American history had thrilled a younger lad in Cimozjen. Being on Earth had proven safe. The doctor decided he wanted to try to capture the excitement of years long past. What better way to travel far from earth, he figured, than to apply to Starfleet.

The next four years were a return to form for Kurios. The cadet had to step up particularly to ensure he kept pace with the younger cadets in the Academy. His hard work would finally pay off, as while others were awaiting their first assignment, the doctor found himself being assigned to the USS Amanda.

On the Amanda, Doctor Kurios was placed as a Medical Technician working alongside a younger, brilliant doctor. His service aboard the Amanda is pockmarked by a few heated exchanges between crewman and the Trill, but otherwise he served his duties as expected. Just as Earth had become a canary cage for the bright-eyed physician, so did his post on the starship. As such, he requested transfers to several postings, with each being shot down over the next few years. When a posting rose up near the Devron Shipyards, Kurios snatched up the opportunity and he found himself being transferred to Starbase Bravo. He would serve here as a Medical officer until his promotion which saw him transferred to command the USS Thyanis.
