Personality & Traits

General Overview Strall is somewhat reclusive around non-Vulcans and mostly concerned with his work. He also tends to work unusual hours when left up to him, which his colleagues in Starfleet mockingly referred to the "Strall shift; work 29 hours in a 24 hour day". In his free time he usually meditates, exercises on the holodeck or works on his own personal projects.
Strengths & Weaknesses +Dependable
+Expert in Engineering

-Perfectionist, which leads to doubt of his own work.
-Somewhat inept at social interactions
Ambitions To perfect Starfleet shielding and weapons technologies, as it is logical to be prepared for conflict. He also wishes to study the phenomenon of human innovation and how to adapt it for Vulcan culture.
Hobbies & Interests Working on new shielding and weapons systems, which he simulates in battle simulations. He is also interested in human innovation and irrationality at times. (Yet it seems to always work out for them)

He practices several martial arts, including Suus Mahna.

Personal History Strall was born on Starbase 12 to Vulcan parents: his father was an aide to an ambassador, and his mother a Starfleet science officer. Even though he was not born on Vulcan, his parents raised him the traditional Vulcan way.

Strall was not the most innocent child at the star base nursery though; he would tinker with things and usually make them either explode, disintegrate or otherwise spectacularly and dangerously blink out of existence. The most infamous incident involved a toaster, a comm-badge and other electronics at the age of eight. Even though he followed "all logical procedures", the toaster blew up (as expected, but unexpectedly strongly) and injured him severely. He now bears a scar to remind him of that day.

He always knew he wanted to join Starfleet. He would tell you it's "the only logical conclusion", but in truth he wishes to study humans more closely, both their technology and their psyche. He joined Starfleet Academy with stellar scores and was quickly recognized as a perfect fit for engineering. Even though some cadets mocked his attitudes towards work and engineering, he persevered, graduating with honors in Shield Technology and Weapons Systems.

After graduating, he was assigned to the USS Valiant, where he served faithfully and received several promotions, serving the last two years with the rank of Lieutenant and as the de facto assistant CEO (the spot was taken by another). Seeking to further his carrer, Strall requested a transfer to the USS Ascension, as it also fit his interests.
Service Record USS Valiant; 10 years, with the final two as Lt. and de facto ACEO.
