Personal History Born and raised in central Pennsylvania, his family lived away from the cities in one of the few areas still considered "rural," surrounded by Amish farms. His father, descended from old-world pioneers, was not a fan of modern convenience and while they were not as without as the true Amish families, they were, by most modern standards, old-world settlers.

Nicholas and his siblings didn't necessarily reject the lifestyle they grew up in, but living in a modern world exposed them to the joys of technology and modern living, and they all branched out into that environment as they grew older, each pursuing their passions.

Nicholas was inspired to become a doctor when he was 16. He'd considered signing up for Starfleet already upon the advice of his school guidance counselor, but medicine struck him as a path that would allow him to do the most good.

The academy proved to be an extreme challenge for him. He was a person who didn't learn his lessons necessarily as fast as others, but once he learned something, he never forgot it. So what he lacked in intuition, he made up for in study time, keeping himself to himself and pouring over material.

After graduation he worked his way through Medical, serving various Starfleet posts within the heart of the Federation. However, after the USS Bozeman required a surgeon without delay, he accepted the transfer, doing his duty for the fleet. He didn't mind Starship life, and decided to continue serving as Chief Surgeon aboard the USS Kitty Hawk, continuing to keep himself to himself when he felt like it.
