Personal History

Personal History Born and raised on Nautolan IV, a human colony based on a water planet. He grew up in the capital city, where his father worked as a marine biologist for the local government. The family often spent time at sea, and Wale loves the water. He believes that as a child, he spent more time in the water, than out of it. As a result, he is an excellent swimmer, and has tremendous lung capacity, able to hold his breath for up to ten minutes. However an incident occurred when he was 10. His 7-year-old sister, Alicia, drowned during a family outing. The consequences of the accident led to the family spending far less time near the water, something that Wale resented. His mother went into a deep depression after her daughter’s death, and eventually committed suicide when Wale was 12 years old.

Wale’s love of the sea was too strong however, and he returned to open waters as soon as he could. He majored in biology, and earned a Ph.D. in marine biology at the Vulcan Science Academy, before entering Starfleet Academy to become an officer.

His career on the Shanghai was exemplary. The ship's attachment to Golovin allowed him the use of a beachfront cabin on Shune Bay, which overlooked the crash site of an Andorian cruiser, right in the middle of the Bay. His experience in oceanography allowed him to fully document the extent of the contamination to the Bay's marine ecosystems, and he developed a complete plan to remove the crashed cruiser, decontaminate the environment, and restore the Bay to its natural habitat.

He requested a one-year sabbatical from Starfleet to head the restoration project, backed by the Federation Science Council. Starfleet granted the request. Wale relocated from the Shanghai to Golovin, along with a small team of scientists and engineers from the ship, who supported him through various stages of the project, including Jiang Ying Yue, who was his lover at the time.

Halfway through the restoration, Starfleet abandoned the Golovin Sector, and the colony and all personnel still planetside were stranded there, with no means of support or communication with the Federation. With the Shune Bay restoration project complete, Wale was elected to the Colony leadership council.

In 2393, two years after Starfleet pulled out of the Raeyan sector, a plague of unknown origin swept through the colony, killing 1200 colonists, and leaving over 400 others with permanent disabilities. It was determined that if the colonists had had access to a moden medical facility, such as that of a Starship's Sickbay, over eighty percent of those cases would have been avoided.

Among the victims was Jiang, who was eight months pregnant with Wale's child.
