Personal History

Youth

 

Aloysius Bartholomew Stark was born to Jeremiah and Antoinette Louvois-Stark on October 31, 2346. His parents were both pilots flying cargo runs for Starfleet inside the Sol System. Stark took his first flight with his father when he was two years old. After this maiden flight for him he became a regular passenger when either of his parents had to make an in-system run. ‘Aly’ as his parents call him, started taking the controls by the time he was five years old and was a good pilot by the time he was eight. Stark had always been interested in Japan and started studying Kendo when he was ten.

His childhood was spent learning to fly and going to school. His parents bought him an old WWII era P-38 Lightning that he named Fujin after the Japanese god of the wind. He still has the plane at his family’s home in New Orleans though it remains in storage.

 

Starfleet Marine Corps

Stark took the Academy Entrance Exam at the earliest possible age and was admitted to Starfleet joining the prestigious Marine Corps. His times at the Marine Academy were some of the best of his early life. He made many friends and established several long-term friendships that he maintains to this day.

Stark graduated from the Marine Academy a 2nd Lieutenant and immediately was enrolled in Advanced Flight Training at Starbase 21. He flew with Thunderbolt Squadron becoming one of the top pilots in his class. Then Colonel Martin Hapscomb saw great potential in the 2nd Lieutenant and recommended him for the Advanced Survival Training Program at Starbase 17. On Adjani II Stark’s squad was caught in an avalanche and their instructor severely injured.

1st Lieutenant Stark found shelter for the squad and set out for the Marine Camp some eight kilometers away. He arrived and notified the Camp Commander of the situation. The squad was rescued and the instructor survived. Stark suffered mild hypothermia but was otherwise unharmed. Stark finished his training and moved on to the Advanced Weapons School at El Toro. It was at the end of his training here when the Klingon Empire attacked Cardassia and then Deep Space Nine before withdrawing from the Khitomer Accords.

Dominion War

Starfleet scrambled to assemble forces to hold the Klingons out of what now became disputed territory. Stark was assigned to the U.S.S. Georgetown and the ‘Flying Nightmares’ fighter squadron. The Georgetown was involved in several running battles with Klingon forces successfully defending several Federation Colonies. It was at the Battle of Galdonterre that Stark would commit a selfless act that would nearly cost him his life. With his fighter badly damaged Stark should have withdrawn from the combat zone but instead stayed and saved his wingman. The subsequent damage to the fighter caused it to catch fire. Both the fire suppression system and the ejection systems failed and 1st Lieutenant Stark was nearly burned alive.

When he regained consciousness, Stark was in a ward at Starfleet’s Johns Hopkins Burn Center, having been transported to the facility while in stasis due to his injuries. Stark had suffered burns over fifty percent of his body. Months of skin and muscle grafts followed by months of physical therapy saw the newly promoted Marine Captain regaining his strength and sense of purpose. Another devastating blow awaited him as his fiancée chose to leave him being unable to handle the hard truth of his career.

His parents stayed with him throughout the entirety of his rehabilitation once again illustrating the unquestioned love they possessed for their only son. Colonel Hapscomb also made himself to aide Stark in his physical therapy, pushing him to regain his abilities. The bond that had formed between student and teacher strengthened becoming a deep friendship. Two years after suffering his injuries Marine Captain Stark returned to active duty just in time to participate in the ongoing Dominion War. He was assigned to the U.S.S. Ranger fighting with the ‘The Bengals’ at such notable engagements as the Battle of Chin’toka and the final push to Cardassia.

  Aftermath

The end of the Dominion War saw Stark promoted to the rank of Major and assigned as Weapons Specialist to the Grey Ghost Marine Recon Unit. His missions took him to Romulan Outposts along the Neutral Zone to observe the growing unrest between the dominant Rihannsu and the subservient Reman. His unit was assigned to the task force assembled to stop the RSE Scimitar’s advance on Earth.

He has gladly accepted the position of Detachment Commander aboard the U.S.S. Swiftsure, as the vessel’s new mission profile will take it into unexplored territory on the Federation’s edge. There he met and married Captain Paula Chapman on December 14th, 2383.

In January 2385 their children Anna and Michael Chapman Stark were born. In may of the same year Paula and Aloysius were reassigned to the USS Poseidon where Aloysius was appointed as CAG.
