Personality & Traits

General Overview Thalen has a very competitive nature about him and he can, at times, also be combative when completely necessary. Knowing almost nothing about what happened to his own clan much less who they were has been challenging for him. Growing up as a child he struggled in a clan that he felt like he simply did not belong in. Starfleet, while his adoptive parents were proud of his choice, was the perfect escape from Andoria and that clan. One day he would like to be the chief of Starfleet Security because few Andorians have ever reached that milestone.

Personal History It is completely unknown as to where Thalen was born in fact Shraalik isn't even his given clan name nor is Thalen his given name. Thalen was only four months old when he was discovered in the Northern Wastes with a group of dead Andorians assumed to be his clan, but he was the only survivor and no records were recovered. His birth year is estimated to be around 2359, but even that seems to be shrouded in mystery.

Abahl ch'Shraalik was the one who found him and along with his mate adopted him when he was only four months old. They gave him the name Thalen and were unable to have children themselves making Thalen their only child. When Thalen was ten years old his adoptive parents told him the story of how he was found in the Northern Wastes with little information to go on.

When he was sixteen he attempted to go off to the Northern Wastes, but too much time had passed and he was unable to find out anything about his parents. It was in 2377 that he attempted to take the Starfleet Academy entrance exam being one of only six to be chosen from Andoria for that year. He chose Tactical Studies primarily focusing on combat tactics.

He wasn't the best of students and struggled through many of his core courses mathematics was an especially difficult course for him to learn. It was one of the things he barely got through during the entry examination. But, he continued to press onward until finally graduating in 2381 and gaining his commission. Thalen made his adoptive parents proud and he hoped that his real parents would have felt the same way as well.

In 2381 he was assigned to the USS Bishop as one of the Tactical Officers though he only saw combat on one occasion when the ship was boarded by an unidentified and hostile alien force. That happened in 2385 and thanks to his quick thinking the Second Officer was able to survive an encounter with the hostile lifeforms. He was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade and highly decorated for his efforts.

He would remain aboard for another four years before the Bishop was decommissioned and he was reassigned to the USS Onnar. Deep Space was not exactly something that he was looking forward to, but it was the only assignment available that would propel his career forward at the time. He took the assignment as Assistant Chief Tactical Officer on the ship.
