Lieutenant Kalin Simon Jerome is a Federation Starfleet officer who served the 11th Fleet in the latter half of the 24th century aboard the USS Endeavour as its Chief Medical Officer.

History

Kalin grew up with his family in on the Moon of Titan in the colony there. When he was six, he discovered what his father’s job actually meant, and wanted to help him with his work. Simon however explained that unless he knew everything he did, then little progress would be made. At the age of nine, his Father acquired a position at Star Fleet academy, as a lecturer there. He moved to Earth to continue his studies on Earth. When he turned ten, his father and mother took him on an expedition to an extinct world, which seamed to have disappeared long ago, for no reason, but many buildings, and objects still remained.

While there, he wanted to go down to the surface, but his father would not allow it. A Shuttle would fly down, to deliver various equipment, and he snuck onboard. Once down there, he went to see what he could find. If he were discover something of grate value, then his father might allow him to come on further exploration trips. What he found though was a great and terrible discovery.

Hidden in a shallow hole was a small box, which looked like two triangular pyramids. He opened it, and it contained some small vials of liquid. When examining them, his father research team found him. In his shock he hid it behind his back, not wanting his father to see what he had found: He wanted to show it to captain. However, when hiding it, he accidentally broke one of the vials, containing a strong pink liquid. The liquid spilled on his finger tips, and entered his body through the pores in his skin. His father laughed at what he had done. He had expected him to try and get down, not actually make it down to the surface. He had expected him to try to bribe the transporter operators.

Kalin was happy, but soon felt unwell and was beamed back to the ship, to see what was wrong with him, as the medical officers scanner was on the blink. When he arrived, he was quickly taken to med bay, only to find that he had contracted a virus of some kind. They saw his fingers, stained by the toxin's liquid. The virus was already spreading through out the ship and into others by the second.

The crew tried to make a cure, trying to combat the effects. Kalin was surprisingly well considering he was so young, and is immune system was naturally good at combating the sickness. He was the first to contract it, yet his body was fighting it very well.

A cure was eventually found, and a vaccine created, but not before the sickness had taken many lives. His mother, Simone was one of them. He healed, and the secret that he had brought it on the ship was covered up, as Kalin felt enough guilt without people blaming him for hit. Only a handful of officers know, and the medical staff simply knew that he was the first reported case of it.

He returned to Earth, and continued his normal life, this time without his mother. He Graduated from Starfleet, and was transferred to work on the USS Endeavour.

Starfleet

Enrolled in the Academy at earliest age possible, and worked on labs that they have been showed too. While there, he met young engineer called Ethan Kessel, who he has been friends with for a long time. He Studies very hard, and tries to achieve the best possible results. While there, he spent little time socializing, and because of which, he very unfamiliar with how to socialize with others, but is more than willing to give it a try.

His career has just kicked off, and has not really been in very exciting positions yet. The only time was during the Academy, was during an explanation of some of he equipment in the Med Bay. The lecturer had, had a near fatal heart attack, but Kalin had successfully managed his fellow students into keeping him alive until the more experienced doctors arrived. This Notable achievement did assist in his graduation, as although he was only recently graduated, his teachers did recommend him position of Assistant Chief Medical Officer.

Education

He studied on Titan through most of his early schooling, but once his father became a lecturer at Starfleet academy he moved to Earth. he wanted to become a doctor, to help combat other sicknesses that were brought onto ships. He expressed this to his father who made several arrangements to help him, and moved them both to a Star Fleet quarters, where he worked.

He studied at the Star fleet academy ever since his mother died. This was at a very early age of 13, however, this was unofficial lessons, as he could not yet take the entrance exam, but many could see progress was being made rapidly. When he took the final exam, he passed with flying colours, thanks to his dedicated study and the efforts of his fellow peers, family and friends.

Personal Life

Family

His relation ship with his father was tricky after the death of his mother. He thought his relationship would be ruined after he caused her death. After a brief confrontation, his father confessed that he does not blame him, but himself, for not keeping a better eye on him, or for not taking him down to the surface to begin with. He is very protective of his sister, and does not want any bad things to happen to her, like their mother.
