  • Simon Tam


  • Kaywinnit-Lee Tam


  • Nick Tam (engineer)(Quadruplet)
  • Cody Tam (science officer)(Quadruplet)
  • Andrew Tam (intelligence officer)(Quadruplet)


One of the male quadruplets born to Simon and Kaywinnit-Lee ‘Kaylee’ Tam. Both currently are serving together aboard the U.S.S Heart of Gold; Simon as Chief Medical Officer and Kaylee as Chief Engineer. Martin enjoyed getting into mischief all his childhood along with his brothers; their parents finally had given up and sent the boys back to their grandparents living on Earth; of course often having regular vacations to visit the boys. Eventually and after both primary and secondary schooling the Tam brothers joined Starfleet Academy at 19 (Martin), 19 (Nick), 18 (Cody) and 18 (Andrew). Martin meanwhile had his hobby of researching weapons and religiously enjoyed all things martial arts, combat and tactics so he selected the Security Tactical branch; Nick went for the technical side of things as he enjoyed building, fixing and taking things apart, he had a knack for it so he applied for the Engineering Operations branch; Cody had developed an interest for all things scientific and elected the Sciences branch; and Andrew however liked to put his stealthy skills for spying and intelligence gathering to good use by applying for Intelligence branch. The brothers did express some interest in each others' areas as Starfleet Academy favoured those who generalised in most subjects. Upon graduating their basic and advanced general courses at 24, 24, 23 and 23, the brothers went for additional year of training in their respective fields: Martin did his extra year at Starfleet Tactical learning and contributing to all the research and development projects of weapons and defenses; Nick joined the crew of the U.S.S da Vinci that is assigned to the Corps of Engineers. He learned about the how and what for all the latest technologies that were in development; Cody attended seminars and workshops at Starfleet’s Science Directorate where he learned as much as he could of the Directorate’s accumulated knowledge; and Andrew went on an undercover mission that spanned a few non-Federation worlds with the objective of obtaining certain information and forming a network of contacts that Starfleet Intelligence could use after Andrew had returned home a year later, he received commendations.
