Personal History Alexander was born in Thornhill, a rural village several miles from Dumfries, Scotland. His early life was full of upheaval due to the nature of his parent's roles. This would lead to them moving to SFA San Francisco so that the parents could continue their work without having to leave Alexander for too long.

He did well in school and under the coaching of his parents became an accomplished student before he entered the Academy. His time at the Academy was challenging due to the introverted nature Alex had and concluded with him leaving with only a small group of friends. As they all left for their assignments, Alexander remained at the Academy in order to further specialise his knowledge regarding warp and propulsion systems. Once concluded he set out amongst the stars aboard the USS Truman eager to finally venture through space with the fleet.

His time on the Truman was rewarding, but he often found himself bored at the stagnancy of his role and wished for something with a higher tempo that would keep him busier. When news of the Defiant made its way through the ranks Alexander applied to hope to get assignment aboard what could shape up to become the most challenging assignment of many Starfleet Officer's careers.
