Things that need to be covered in your bio:
Name, Age, hair color, pants size, reason for joining Starfleet, reason for leaving Starfleet, what you did after you left Starfleet (unless it took place on planet Vegas), reason for rejoining Starfleet, name of your ship, reason you didn't end up on a good ship like the Enterprise, how much bacon you eat every day, favorite drink, least favorite crewmember, weapon choice, reason why you are the most awesome Captain ever, justification for the crappy name you picked out for your ship, background on your alien species that looks totally gross, and finally any awards/commendations you are claiming to have made.

I don't use DOB or a final/current age., because the game timeline/stardates are very spratical (also I want from Ensign to RA in less than 2 weeks, which will screw with any Bio realism).

Here's two of mine if they help.

1. Kaine - Klingon Male Tac.

He was born during the Klingon-Cardassian war aboard a frontline Bird of Prey. His House was in disfavour with the Empire, so it was decided that the homeworld was not safe and he would stay on the Bird of Prey, which was completely run and crewed by members of his House.

A year later the Klingon-Cardassian war ended with the birth of the Dominion War, the Bird of Pray was immediately sent once more to the frontlines. 6 months later the Bird of Prey was found dead in space by a Federation cruiser. The 1 and 1/2 year old was only survivor, the Jem'Hadar had boarded the Bird of Prey and killed the crew in close combat, but he was well hidden away by his mother.

The Federation tried to give the boy back to the Empire, but his House was dead and no one wanted to take in member of a dis-favourable dead house. So the Federation made him a Federation citizen, put him in their orphan program and even gave him a name, as no one new his original one.

Kaine as he was now known was adopted by a Vulcan woman, T'nai, who decided it was the logical thing to do, as she had lost her own husband and son to the Dominion War.

T'nai educated Kaine like a Vulcan child but did not teach emotional control, she decided it would be illogical since Klingons are an emotional race. However she did teach a strong degree of self control so that Kaine could rule his ever fiery temper, rather than it rule him. T'nai also had Kaine trained early and highly in Vulcan, Klingon and Starfleet martial arts, Klingon melee weapons and even marksmanship, foreseeing the future usefulness.

At 18 Kaine joined Starfleet Academy, 4 years later he graduated a full tactical officer.

Kaine got his scar in a Bat'leth fight to the death with a Da'har master on Regulus IV.

After a long career of 4 commands and stopping countless (classified) threats to the Federation, Kaine has been promoted to Rear Admiral. The Admiral however does not have a desk based career like most, instead he stays on the front lines.

2. Noi - Joined Trill Female Sci.

Emiria Siruro was born on Trill. From a young age she had a keen interest in how things work, this included the workings of humanoid bodies, which in turn lead her down the path of medicine. Emiria applied to Starfleet Medical Academy and after a few exams was accepted. She spent the next 5 years of her life studying, training and practising under watchful eyes of real Medical Doctors, until she finally became one herself. Emiria then chose to take a position at Starfleet Medical. During her free time over the years Emiria also learnt quite allot about starship engineering and a large field of sciences, even sneaking into a few classes over at Starfleet Academy, which got her in small bit of trouble, though it quickly went away as Starfleet couldn't fault her for wanting to learn more.

The Noi symbiote had 9 hosts before Emiria, 7 of which were Starfleet Officers of varying fields. The last was Commander Rozon Noi second Officer aboard the U.S.S. Fontier.

Emiria was aboard U.S.S. Fontier as passenger on her way home to Trill in the Kalandra sector, when it was attacked by a Jem'Hadar battleship. The Fontier won the fight destroying the battleship but was heavily damaged, including both the warp engines and communications array. Commander Rozon was was critically injured in the attack and despite all efforts of the Fontier's Doctors died. The Noi symbiote however survived, barely. It was hoped that the ship would be fixed and make it to Trill before the symbiote died, but this was not the case, the symbiote took a turn for the worse. Emiria not wanting the symbiote to die and being the only Trill aboard decided to join with it.

Emiria took a year out from Starfleet Medical on Trill to get used to being joined as she had not received any of the training normal joined Trill go through, as she never really had any interest in being joined. After her new personality stabilized Emiria rejoined Starfleet Medical to continue her career but this time on a Federation Ship.

Depends on what you define as "work". Like me, I enjoy writing backstories almost as much as I enjoy playing.

Hey dammit, why pick on the awards and promotions. As long as it isn't the Medal of Valor (seriously folks, that's like the Starfleet version of the Medal of Honor, or the Victoria Cross), and someone doesn't go way overboard with them, a couple awards and a medal is good and probably even likely.

Thank you all for all of your Great Replys ! lots of good ideas and options !

I sort of went on about her past and how she was kidnapped by the Empire and earned respect within the Empire to Command her own Ship... since she isnt quite a normal Klingon since I made her a Andorian sub-species called the Aenar

DOB: July 2, 2385
Age: 24
Homeworld: Earth
Hometown: Tokyo, Japan

Given up for adoption immediately after he was born, Alexander "Alex" Yamato was adopted by Starfleet Officer Haruma Yamato and his wife, Caridad.

Alex followed in his father's footsteps and joined Starfleet, entering the Academy at the youthful age of 18 and graduating only three years later at the age of 21!

Soon after joining Starfleet, Alex was assigned to the Rapier-Class USS Murasame when it joined other Starfleet vessels in repelling a Borg attack on the Vega Colony. The Murasame lost most of its Command Staff in the fight, leaving Alex as the senior ranking officer. Alex took command and demonstrated incredible ability, and Starfleet gave him permanent command of the Murasame.

Soon afterwards, Alex met the Vulcan T'Marin, a Starfleet Lieutenant who became his XO. At first, Alex thought she was just like any Vulcan--cold and unemotional, although she lacked the accompanying arrogance. However, after spending some time with her, Alex managed to discover that T'Marin actually did let her emotions show when she was around people she trusted, and Alex became good friends with her.

After about six months, Alex started getting assigned frontline missions against the Klingon Empire. On one such mission against a Klingon Research Facility, T'Marin was almost killed, and Alex began to realize his feelings for her ran deeper than friendship. He eventually determined that he had fallen in love with T'Marin, and confessed his feelings to her on their way back to spacedock. Alex was pleasantly surprised when T'Marin returned his affections, and the two officially became a couple, getting married a few months later.

Alex now fights on the front lines in the USS Maelstrom, a state-of-the-art Fleet Escort, and he does his best to protect his friends, his family, and especially T'Marin, his beloved wife.


I hope the Bio is a good read, and that it provides some good ideas for a format.
My eyes will never be the same again ! lol ^^ sooo blue!! but Seriously Thanks for sharing I will have a good read over this for ideas to edit mine
