Solluk Reporting In (Feb 6 2017)
« on: February 06, 2017, 09:57:34 PM »
Character Name: Solluk
Character Age: 35

Character DOB: Second Vulcan Month, third day of that month.

Character Image: Under Development, (will be Tom Hiddleston with pointy ears.)

Character Species: Vulcan

Gender: Male

Character Family:
Sorin (Father)
T’Pran (Mother)


Character Bio:
Solluk was born on Vulcan to parents Sorin and T'Pran, who both worked within the Planetary Logistics Board, a division in charge of managing the efficient distribution of resources and equipment to government agencies on the planet.   Solluk was a mediocre academic, but exhibited a strong talent for athletics and displayed remarkable alacrity and reflexes.  At a young age, he took an interest in piloting, and this interest would remain with him throughout his life.

Shortly after reaching the age of majority, Solluk graduated from the Vulcan Technical Institute of Shikhar with certificates in aeronautical piloting, sublight piloting, astrogation, and warp maneuvers.  He was able to get a position on the Planetary Logistics Board as a Freight Transport Operator, ferrying supplies to and from Vulcan from outlying parts of the system on a low warp transport.   Solluk also began a courtship with a young woman in the Planetary Logistics Board's administrative branch.  Things looked good for his future.

Then, during a routine transport operation, an incident occurred that would change his life forever. 

Solluk was piloting a craft carrying refined Duranium ingots to Vulcan, when he noticed something amiss.  A Vulcan shuttle began moving erratically, and turned to ram a Starfleet science vessel undergoing a sensor refit in a shipyard facility in orbit of Vulcan.  The shuttle was being piloted by a mentally unbalanced Vulcan suffering from Bendii syndrome, although no one understood this at the time.  Seeing that the collision was going to occur, and having no tractor beam on his transport ship, Solluk deviated from his assigned flight path and purposefully collided with the shuttle to change its course. 

He succeeded in preventing a catastrophic collision, but he suffered injuries in the process when a damaged EPS relay overloaded and sent a powerful jolt of electricity through the cockpit of Solluk's transport.  The jolt cooked part of Solluk's brain, causing some permanent brain damage.  As a result of the injuries, he lost the ability to fully control his emotions. 

Anywhere other than Vulcan, this loss of control would have been unnoticeable.   On Vulcan, his minor emotional exhibitions became an offensive level of emotional display.  He was continuously embarrassing himself with smiles, frowns, and other subtle emotional cues.  This made fellow Vulcans uncomfortable.  He even sensed this discomfort within his own family.   The woman he'd been courting politely broke off the courtship without real explanation, but Solluk understood why.  He did his best not to show it, but he felt a great deal of shame.

Finally, Solluk made the decision that life on Vulcan would be too uncomfortable for him, and he turned his sights to a career outside of Vulcan territory.   Armed with a letter of recommendation and commendation from the Captain of the Starfleet science ship he'd sacrificed himself to save, he enlisted in Starfleet.

Starfleet turned out to be a breath of fresh air, as it was an organization that delighted in variety.  While Vulcans claimed the philosophy of infinite diversity, Starfleet personnel actually lived it.  Solluk completed basic training and received technical certifications that supplemented his existing piloting knowledge with knowledge of combat maneuvers and weapons systems, in addition to basic maintenance of the related technology.  His pilot training was further supplemented with martial arts skills- in which he excelled thanks to his natural dexterity and strength- and ranged combat skills that benefitted from his hand-eye coordination.

There is no real prestige for a Vulcan serving in the lowly capacity of enlisted crewman.  However, Solluk has left those Vulcan standards behind him, and has decided to embrace at least one of the basic emotions that his injuries have cursed him with:  He has decided to have fun.

Your Details

Previous Role-Playing Experience: I have been roleplaying for 29 years.  And now I realize I am quite old.

Department Preference: Most likely in Flight Control, piloting some manner of embarked craft.

Secondary Department Preference: Security

Commissioned, Enlisted or Civilian: Enlisted

********************
Sample post:

Solluk smirked when he saw her.  It was just a slight upwards curve at the corners of his mouth, but he might as well have laughed aloud and danced in place.  He immediately realized his error and straightened his expression, but it was too late.  T’Rim’s face was impassive.  As impassive as any Vulcan’s ought to be.  But he could feel her disappointment as if it were the heat of the noonday sun.

“This is who I am now,” he wanted to tell her, “I can’t control it.  But I still value you and I think there can be value in us.”

He said none of that, however.  Except perhaps with his eyes, with faint expression.

Any expression was a misstep.  This could only end one way.

In fact… he was quite sure it was over already.

Additional information: I am willing to complete any kind of tutorial necessary to begin the game at a level above Bottle Washer, Fourth Class. 

How did you find Shadow Fleet?

Solluk,

A very good application.

Per our emails, I have an opening in the Flight Control department on the Discovery.

And you can take the Enlisted training course right away if you like!

Please let me know if that will work for you.

Sincerely,

Kirok

Hello everyone!

I have noticed that some characters have an elegant ship assignment photo and placard embedded into their signature line.  Is there a process for acquiring this decoration?  Cheers!
