Personality & Traits

General Overview Zekur is one of few Cardassians to have more Federation values than that of Cardassian values in large part due to him growing up in the Federation. His choice to join Starfleet was because of the service they had done for his family by accepting them into the ranks of other Federation citizens. Duty and honor are two of the most important things in his life as are family and friends.

Personal History Zekur was born on Rakal in the Cardassian Union in 2362, one of four children, to parents Magul and Pugat. His life would change drastically however, when he was eight years old when it was discovered by the Obsidian Order that his father was part of the Cardassian Underground and they were forced to flee in the middle of the night.

In 2370 the Lejas family sought out and received political asylum in the United Federation of Planets and moved to the Federation colony world Izar. The family would remain on the planet and later become official Federation citizens just before Zekur turned seventeen years old. When Zekur was seventeen years old he opted to attempt to join Starfleet. That same year four seats from Izar were available for the Academy. And, Zekur took second out of the four selected before being officially admitted into Starfleet Academy.

In 2379 Zekur Lejas started at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco on Earth although it was the first time he had ever been there he tried to fit in. The first two years at the academy were a struggle for the young Cardassian as some of the instructors had been in service during the Dominion War. Whereas many students had family and friends who had also served during the destructive war. Eventually he was able to find his place there and completed the last two years without a hitch.

In 2383 Zekur Lejas graduated from Starfleet Academy and was commissioned at the rank of Ensign. Having studied heavily in warp theory and propulsion he was ideal to becoming an engineering officer aboard USS Serpentis. Early in his career he proved his value as an engineer when the ship was attacked and suffered heavy damage that he was able to assist in repairing.

Again in 2385 he was decorated for valor and distinction when he put his life at risk during a planetary outbreak. He became ill with the disease, but under the guidance of the doctor outside of the building he had locked himself in he was able to save two out of the five people. Eventually those he had saved were able to save him as well. That same year he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.

Zekur remained on board the ship for another four years before deciding that it was time for a change and, in 2389 he requested transfer. Late that same year he was transferred to the USS Onnar to fill in as the Diagnostics Engineer aboard the ship. He had also learned about the new Quantum Slipstream Drive and therefore had knowledge there.
