Personal History Having achieved above average marks, Johnathan survived Starfleet Academy surprisingly well. His first assignment was to the U.S.S. Britanis, as an Engineer's mate. He spent his first five years there learning all he needed to know, to become a useful engineer.

He took two advanced courses, while serving on board. A class in advanced warp theory, and another in propulsion mechanics. Each class were both, two years long.

Once he graduated, He was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant J.G., and assigned as engineering officer. He spent most of his time, learning every nook and cranny of the ships systems, and layout. He became so proficient at it, he was able to dismantle an entire warp core assembly, and put it back together himself.

Almost two years later, their Assistant Engineer left the service. He had given twenty years of service, and decided to retire.

Johnathan put his name in for the new assistant.

He was denied, due to his lack of seniority with the crew.

This nearly crushed the man, as he had his sights set on this promotion, to help get him in the running to become a candidate for Chief, on another ship one day.

The Chief Engineer handed him a PaDD, with an open ended transfer list pulled up on it.

John read the PaDD's headline carefully. 'Chief Engineer open positions.' It read, in rather simple, and small text, but the message couldn't of been bigger.

His name was on one of those lines. One of the newer vessels. The U.S.S. Freedom. It seemed the fates were with him, and the luck of the Irish was on his side.

It seemed to good to be true, until the Chief handed him another PaDD. This one was simple, and short, but to the point.

It read of his CO, and the Chief recommending him as beyond qualified to continue serving aboard their vessel in his compacity, and had requested from the Admiralty, for an early bump to Chief Engineer.

It was approved by an Admiral Daluka, and signed for the previous days date.

Now all he waited on was approval from the Freedom, before his change of orders packet, bacame official.
