Not muchh happened early on. Dorian was born on Mars, a little ways from a Starfleet base. So close that his window overlooked it so he saw it every morning when he woke up, and the reverse at night. To him it represented a larger world.
He needed that desperately. His home life left something to be desired in that regard. Being the only child of two control freak parents, it was a stressful way to grow up. So stressful that he decided very early in life that by hell or high water he’d join Starfleet someday. This was about the age of 6.
From 6 to 17 he made this his life’s goal. Primary school was more or less a breeze to get trough, Dorian being a good student.
High school was a little rocky though. Cramming for those academy exams took a lot out of him. Upto the point he was beginning to overwhelm him. He stuck through however. Barely, but he made it.
In the academy he was at a loss for a major. On a whim he fell on engineering. Turned out he loved it. Tinkering proved to take his mind off of things.
In short, he was living his dream.
In his offtime the Academy Tennis team took up the bulk of his tims
Upon graduattion he was assigned to the Magee Class USS Archer as an assistant Engineer. the twenty something ate the experience up, soaking up the info likea sponge.
Life went on like this for at least two years pretty much normal. Basicaly the dull routine of ship life. Exploration, diplomacy, etcetera.
That is to say that they didnt face their share ofexcitement with the odd skirmish with orion pirates.
It was during one such skirmish that Dorians life changed. He happened to be in engineering during one such skirmish. The ship took some rather well plaed hits. Dorian was at the damage control console when it exploded, sending all manner of debris into his left arm.
Doctors couldn’t save it so a replacement had to be fitted. He opted for a removable one, just to not have to wear it when he didn’t have too.
From there he was taken to starbase 24 in order ro rest and get used to his new artificial appendage. He alkso served TAD there commanding a small group of cadets in engineering.
Seems he liked it. The teaching and the suoervisory aspect
He sought out as many such opportunities as he could, petitioning to stay on at the Starbase. Which he did for a year before being assigned to earth
He spent his time there as an Engineering supervisor at the Academy, while splitting his time as an “XO” to cadets doing their Kobayashi Maru.
That was until the recent battle between the UFP and the Kingons.
