Personality & Traits

General Overview Very Confident when talking about his engines, not so much when talking to other crewmates in social situations. He tries to be outgoing but it doesn't usually work out to well for him. So he keeps to him self a good amount of the time. He's always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs it, even if it means he himself might get in trouble for it.
Strengths & Weaknesses Well versed in all aspects of Engineering, but is still a junior officer and sometimes thinks he knows more then he actually does. Sometimes this overconfidence gets him in trouble. He's also very enthusiastic about his work often being in engineering even when hes not on shift, helping others get their work done.
Ambitions Wants to be Chief Engineer on board a starship. Maybe even someday command one of his own. But knows that he will most likely be an engineer the rest of his life, and he really has no problem with that.
Hobbies & Interests Builds model starships, which he proudly displays around inside his quarters. Has an interest in other species warp drive technology and is constantly on the wire with people at starfleet intelligence trying to pry out information that they have discovered about any new warp technologys that are being created.

Personal History

Personal History Born in 2361 on earth. Grew up reading about the explorations of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Would hang around the docking ports looking for anyone to teach him about engines and anything else they were willing to show him. A Technician named John Finn who was working on a private transport shuttle admired the young boys ambition and gave him all the help he could teaching him about the fucntions of the warp drive and all aspects of keeping a ship running. When Derrik was 16 he left home for good and began working as part of the crew of this transport shuttle service he became a very good pilot as well as the type of technician that could make anything work. He learned quite a lot from this experiance and when he turned 18 he told them that he was grateful for all they had shown him and for giving him the chance to learn and that he was going to Join Starfleet Academy and work on the newest technologies. His Mentor wished him well and expected to hear from him often about everything he was learning. In his junior year there he recieved word that a shuttle that Finn was piloting crashed while trying to land at the New Berlin colony on the moon.
Bauer was devastated by this and took a month off from his studies. His friends did the best they could to try and get him to come back. Buthe had almost comepletely made his mind up to leave when his father unexpectedly showed up at his quarters. He had heard what had happened as Derrik had still been in contact with his parents even though he had left. His father told him that the last thing Finn would have wanted was for him to give up on his dream and gave him letters that Finn had secretly sent to Derrik's parents telling them that their boy was a great Technician and that they should try to help him on his path to one day becoming a great Engineer. With this Derrik returned to classes and Graduated near the top of his class at the academy. Dedicating his work to his friend and his mentor, because without him, He never would have been given the chance to fulfill his dreams.
