Lieutenant Junior Grade Dak


Starfleet Command






Dak, a Ferengi orphan from Ferenginar, stands out as an unconventional member of his species due to his choice of career and his unique blend of cunning intelligence and technical prowess. His diminutive stature and dome-like forehead are typical of his race, and his bright, shrewd eyes reflect a mind that often plays dumb to deceive others. Born in 2368, Dak displayed an aptitude for technical work early on, honing his skills in the face of hardship. He enrolled in Starfleet Academy in 2386, spending six years cultivating his passion for engineering and proving his worth through innovative problem-solving. Graduating in 2392, Dak was assigned to Starfleet Command as a technician, where his distinctive strategies continue to surprise and impress his colleagues. Despite the demands of his role, Dak’s entrepreneurial spirit remains strong, and he consistently seeks out profit-making ventures. However, his Ferengi traits of greed and a quick temper, along with a complete lack of culinary skills, remain his weaknesses. Even with these, Dak’s contributions to Starfleet are substantial, and he is valued by his peers and superiors alike.


Dak is a typical representative of the Ferengi race. Standing just a bit over 5 feet tall, he has a stooped stature typical of his race. His skin is a warm, yellow-ochre hue. He has a sizeable dome-like forehead, a distinctive characteristic of Ferengi physiology, with protruding, sharp-lobed ears quite sensitive to touch. His eyes are bright and alert, reflecting his cunning mind. While he often wears a disarming smile, those who know him well know that it hides his true shrewd nature.


Dak is known for his intelligent and cunning nature, a trait that has served him well as a technician and budding entrepreneur. He is known to play dumb to deceive others, a tactic that has surprisingly worked in his favour more often than not. However, his cunning and intelligence are sometimes overshadowed by his short fuse, which can easily ignite when he is frustrated or feels slighted. He is prone to bouts of pettiness and greed, hallmarks of Ferengi culture. Still, these weaknesses have often led him to difficulties.

Despite his sharp intellect, he lacks physical strength and has no culinary skills whatsoever, making him a dreadful cook. However, his passion for business and the potential profits that can be made are a driving force, shaping both his personal and professional life.


Early Life (2368-2386):

Born in 2368 on the Ferengi homeworld, Ferenginar, Dak was orphaned at a young age and had to fend for himself. This early hardship fostered his cunning and ability to strategize, leading him to continuously seek opportunities for profit and advancement. Despite the harsh realities of Ferengi life, Dak showed an early aptitude for technical work, and he honed his skills whenever possible.

Starfleet Academy (2386-2392):

In 2386, Dak made the unconventional decision for a Ferengi to enrol at Starfleet Academy. Despite the scepticism from his peers, he pursued his passion for engineering, rapidly distinguishing himself with his innovative approaches to technical problems. His time at the Academy wasn’t without difficulties, however. His Ferengi mannerisms and cultural habits were often at odds with Starfleet principles, but he managed to adapt without compromising his Ferengi identity. After six years of hard work and dedication, he finally graduated in 2392.

Starfleet Command (2392-Present):

Upon graduation, Dak was assigned as a Technician at Starfleet Command, a role that allowed him to utilize his technical prowess and cunning to significant effect. His unusual solutions and strategies have proven invaluable, often surprising his colleagues and superiors. He takes pride in his work, but his love for business has yet to wane. He usually takes on side projects and business ventures in his free time, always seeking to turn a profit wherever possible.

In 2401, Dak continues to serve diligently at Starfleet Command. Despite his ambition and entrepreneurial spirit, he is still haunted by his Ferengi weaknesses – his greed often gets the best of him, and he can’t cook to save his life. But despite these flaws, he remains a valuable asset to Starfleet and his crew.
