|Personal History||Nathan was born in Medfield Mass. He is the oldest of the Bishop children and the one who always wanted to be out among the stars. His parents were loving and encouraged his desire to roam among the stars.
As a boy he would spend hours looking at the stars and dream of being out among them exploring or fighting back some alien horde.
He had standard secondary and high school education where he ran cross country and was all state and played baseball.
He applied and was accepted into Starfleet Academy, where he quickly excelled in tactics and problem solving. He was a good student. The classes he liked he was outstanding in those he didn't he did just enough to get by. Yet even doing that he still was able to graduate in the top 5 percent of his class.
After graduating Bishop was posted to the USS Serling as a junior tactical officer but he showed much promise with his quick grasp of tactics and thinking outside the box.
His next posting was the USS Baton Rouge but with a promotion to Lieutenant where he firmly put himself on Starfleet's radar as someone to watch as he saved the Captain and Executive Officer from an assassination attempt.
He met and worked with Charlotte Reynolds when both were assigned to the USS Bradbury. he was assistant chief tactical officer now. A friendship was formed and still exists.
The USS Roosevelt was next where he was Chief tactical/security chief and promoted to Commander. He again drew the attention of Command as he had the ship to go into the atmosphere of a planet to throw off a Klingon Bird of Prey the Roosevelt was playing a game of cat and mouse with.
For his quick thinking he was rewarded with prestigious command of the USS Arizona even though he was only Commander. It was the best time of his life and he held the position for a little over a year until the "Arizona Incident".
The Arizona had answered a distress call and encountered a Klingon Bird of Prey attacking a farming colony. A battle quickly developed with the Arizona severely damaging the Klingon vessel. In an act of compassion Nathan offered to send medical help to the Klingon ship to help with their wounded. The Klingons quickly agreed. When Nathan lowered his shields to send medical help the Klingons fired a salvo at the Arizona which crippled the starship and caused some loss of life. Only Starfleet reinforcements prevented the situation from being worse.
However Nathan's promising career was in tatters. He was relieved of command and reduced in rank to Lieutenant Commander due to negligence. He now finds himself on the Defiant serving under old friend Charlotte Reynolds.
