Personal History

Personal History Aaron Markus was born on earth in 2352 and was raised mostly by his mother and grandmother on Vulcan. His father was killed on the USS Tolstoy at Wolf 359 when Aaron was only 15. At the time, his father was the tactical officer on board. His father was awarded the medal of honor for saving the captain and 4 others on that day. Aaron spent 15 years mourning his fathers death and even now struggles with the emotions surrounding it. He spent most of that time in Vulcan training. Both of the mind and the body. His grandmother took him to the schools on Vulcan where he learned to supress his emotions. Although, when he began studying Vulcan martial arts, he rejected some of his mental training to focus his anger rather than supress it.

One day, he had a vision of his father while meditating and decided it was his time to leave Vulcan and his mother and grandmother. Aaron joined Starfleet in honor of his father. He decided to not follow in his father's footsteps as Tactical Officer. Instead he followed his boyhood dream of piloting a starship. Unfortunately, the second half of his dream of piloting with his father by his side will never come true. Aaron has served on the USS Atlantis as Helm/Operations officer.
