History:

Nick grew up in North America's Appalachian mountains and spent most of his free time outside. He shared his father's passion for starships and applied to the Academy at his first opportunity.

During his Academy training, Nick developed a passion for space walks and as an ensign on the Calypso logged more EVA time than many of his superior officers. He became romantically involved with Dr. Megan Carter (the Calypso's ACMO) during this tour. By the time he earned the rank of Lt. (jg), the two had wed.

In late 2376, the Yagami responded to a distress call from the Oberth class USS Marshall, damaged in a spatial anomaly. Most of the Marshall's crew had been injured, and while Megan and her medics tended them, Nick led a team into the engineering section to stabilize the warp core. The damage to the ship's systems proved too severe, and Nick ordered both teams to evacuate.

Although both ships were at a "safe" distance from the anomaly, it generated enough subspace interference to scramble transporter signals. Nick's team made it back to the Yagami but he was unable to retrieve Megan and her team before the Marshall's core breached.

After his wife's death, Nick lapsed into a profound depression that nearly cost him his career. He sought counseling before it was too late and fought his way out of it, but it continues to resurface occasionally. Nick accepted a transfer to Parthes Station in early 2377 and adopted his dog Zero soon afterwards.

After the CEO and Second Officer position, Nick went on to be First officer on the Uss Liberty. A mission left him badly wounded and he was replaced. He is now back on the Uss Liberty in his first roles.
