My friends refer to me as 'Kibbles', an in-joke as old as The Federation itself. Gym teachers in high school would refer to me as 'Stal', (short for 'Stallion') if they were impressed. "Kibbles" as in 'puppy chow', as their own derogatory means of motivating me from frequent underachieving. I accomplished a commission in Starfleet, so I guess the joke's on them.
I earned a berth on a newly minted Constellation-Class (heavily upgraded) frigate as a pilot. The U.S.S. Sarajevo. She wasn't pretty but she was a lot sleeker than her boxy predecessor. Within the first few hours of my arrival to report-in for duty, Tim, a beautiful Bajoran on her second year of her assignment, recruited me as her sidekick.
