April 20, 2360

Earth - Valencia, California


Michael Dart is currently an ensign in Starfleet looking to overcome his personal challenges and advance in his career.


Michael Dart stands at a height of 5’7″ with short-cropped black hair and a goatee.  At first glance he appears reserved and unassuming, but upon closer observation there may be a hint of underlying tension concealed in his demeanor.  There is a subtle intensity in his eyes that suggests a hidden fire, as if he has something to prove.  Despite his small stature, there is a certain sense of strength in his frame that seems to suggest he is not to be underestimated.  While Michael’s assertiveness may give off an air of confidence to many, a discerning eye might detect a hint of insecurity lingering beneath the surface.  Nevertheless, he might succeed in appearing to many to be a man who knows exactly what he’s doing and exudes poise and self-assurance.


At an early age Michael was reserved and lacked self-confidence, making him an easy target for those who sought to take advantage of him.  However, as he grew older he learned to stand up for himself and speak out.  But this also brought him to develop an impatience that could sometimes lead to impulsiveness.  While this newfound assertiveness had been beneficial, he must find a balance to avoid becoming the very manner of person he had come to resent all those years ago.  His anger and frustration have been a driving force, but he must learn to manage them to prevent reckless behavior.


Adolescence (2360 – 2378)

Michael was born and raised on Earth, deep in the Sierra Mountains.  Due to the remote nature of those mountains, he did not make many friends until much later in his adolescence.  He grew up hearing captivating stories from his great grandfather about his time in Starfleet.  He spoke of exploring strange phenomena, visiting new worlds, and engaging in skirmishes with Cardassian ships.  While his great grandfather had been no engineer, Michael nevertheless grew up in a family with a strong engineering tradition.  His grandfather was a civilian engineer who contracted work out to Utopia Planetia shipyards on Mars.  His stepfather would leave their modest cabin in the Sierras to travel up into orbit in order to repair civilian craft, where he also managed a small orbital depot station.  Michael’s aunt raced small craft in competitions and also served as her own mechanic.  These were the people who had taught and inspired him as he grew up.

Michael’s early years were spent in relative seclusion, with few relationships outside of his family.  However, as he entered his teenage years, he began to accompany his father to the orbital depot, where he gained much of his early knowledge in engineering.  He also attended his aunt’s racing events and observed from the engineering bays, providing him with his first real exposure to both people and the wider galaxy.  Through these experiences, he realized that his sheltered upbringing had left him vulnerable and gullible.  His interactions with others taught him hard lessons about how easily he could be taken advantage of, and the importance of building trust cautiously.

Starfleet Academy (2378 – 2384)

At age 18, Michael’s choice to join Starfleet was inspired by his great grandfather’s stories as well as the buzz surrounding Voyager’s return.  With his family’s strong engineering tradition, it was natural for him to choose this as his specialization.  Thanks to the experiences provided by his family, he found his studies easy.  However, he faced challenges at the Academy in developing his interpersonal relationships with classmates and teachers.  Collaborating with others would become a difficult skill for him to develop in order to achieve common objectives.
