Personality & Traits

General Overview Jacen is a bubbly man with a great sense of humour and a knack for picking up on tactical strategies, how they work and how to defeat them but also with the most inventive way possible, keeping within the rules. When it comes to his work Jacen is very committed to doing his job and one day hopes to be in the Captains Chair, although he is well aware of the job he needs to do to get there.

On his own, Jacen is very quiet because from time to time he experiences feeling of loss and sadness regarding the death of his mother during the Dominion War in 2375. With his Father serving on board the Starship Fury, Jacen and his sister Talia went to live with their Uncle where their relationship with him grew more close from the time they spent serving at his Repair Yard.

Jacen enjoys his time aboard when serving on duty and loves working with the crew. In his spare time, he enjoys his collection of 20th and 21st century comic books and also enjoys spending time on the Holodeck researching and enjoying re-enactments of 20th/21st Century Motorsports and often has a go himself. He also enjoys reading science fiction stories and taking part in his favourite science fiction Holonovel "The Deathstalker Saga".
Strengths & Weaknesses Jacen's strengths lay in his ability to analyse a problem and try to solve it there and then in the quickest most efficient way possible. However, he can also get over-excited when trying to apply himself because his has plenty of enthusiasm. He is a team player and can also step up to lead personnel and others if the call is made. When things are going well, he can feel confident and sure in his abilities and this gives him the drive to succeed in his work.

His weaknesses lie in when he is confronted with a situation that seemingly holds "no way out" or no resolution to it as this often reminds him of his mother’s death during the Dominion War. This is something he has often tried to work through since her death, but he can find this difficult when faced with a pressure situation. He feels helpless at times in these situations and often suffers a lack of confidence if he feels that there is the possibility he could fail in the resolving the situation, putting the lives of others in danger. It often reminds him that there are no win situations that have to be faced.
Ambitions Jacen wants to progress through the ranks to one day make it to Command like his father has done, who captains the USS Fury. He understands that sitting in the Captain's Chair one day will happen but that it will take a lot of hard work and learning during his career. He has the drive and will to work hard to earn himself a Senior Officer position on board.
Hobbies & Interests Jacen enjoys his collection of 20th and 21st century comic books and also enjoys spending time on the Holodeck researching and enjoying re-enactments of 20th/21st Century Motorsports and often has a go himself. He also enjoys reading science fiction stories, this coming from the time he spent with his Uncle Hank as a child whilst growing up. When he has some downtime, Joseph enjoys taking part in his collection of Science Fiction Holonovels, specifically the "Deathstalker Saga."

Outside of his time on the Holodeck, Jacen enjoys practising archery and keeping his skills up to date with the various trick arrows that he creates. Jacen also enjoys hiking and taking long walks across the countryside on various different planets.

Personal History Jacen was an average child at school, although his hard work and perseverance were noted in each school year. He left all the schools he went to with good scores. Jacen's course was always one set for the stars and he knew that to get there he would have to do his best.

After School and his education, Jacen had decided the career he wanted before he was given an option to choose. To join Starfleet. Understanding his son's drive and determination to follow in the family tradition, Captain Rendar agreed with his son's wish to join Starfleet after completing his education.

Jacen and his sister Talia went to live with his Uncle Hank in England at his Repair Facility and spent time working there on everything from vehicles to small ships, to small garden implements. After a while of working there and still dreaming of the stars, Jacen went on to learn about Engineering, showing the knack of wanting to know how it worked and if it worked how it could work better. With his father’s blessing, Jacen applied for Starfleet Academy and he was accepted.
Service Record Jacen performed well at the academy and showed promise early on in his first year. He also showed his interest in Starship/Starbase Operations and he chose both Operations and Engineering as his courses to pursue. His tutors were impressed by his knowledge and speed of learning when it came to learning about new and current Starship classes, how they worked and also how their Engineering and Operations took place. When it came to Jacen choosing his path, he was recommended that his talents would be best served on board a Starship.

Once Graduating from Starfleet Academy four years later in 2379, Jacen was commissioned an Ensign and received orders from Starfleet to join the crew of the Excelsior Class USS Juno, assigned to the Engineering department. During his time onboard, the Juno was assigned to patrol duty along the Federation – Romulan Border, not long after the Shinzon Incident. The Juno mapped several unknown star systems whilst in the area over a two year period, with Jacen was involved in several operations in Engineering when dealing with different areas of the Rift that affected the older Excelsior Class Starship.

In early 2381, when the Juno returned back to the Alpha Quadrant for refit and resupply at Earth station McKinley, Jacen was offered a position onboard the Nebula Class USS Lexington as the Assistant Chief Operations Officer, which he accepted. Whilst the ship was operating in the Beta Quadrant, Jacen adapted to the newer systems of the Lexington quickly and performed his duty admirably as the ship was involved in exploration duties in the Beta Quadrant.

For his work during the refit, Jacen received a recommendation and was transferred to Engineering and promoted to the Assistant Chief Engineering Officer. During this assignment, Jacen found the exploration side of the mission allowed him to find an inner calm he had missed and he re-discovered the enjoyment of exploration and discovery again.

Jacen enjoyed this tour as he gelled with the crew as they charted many star systems and civilisations. During their time exploring, Jacen employed his original thinking for repairs and solutions during different skirmishes with the Breen who had made claims of territory in unexplored regions of the Beta Quadrant.

The Lexington was recalled after suffering extensive damage during a battle near the Neutral Zone inside a Nebula with a Breen Warship. The battle itself was due to a claim on the region made by the Breen who was looking to set up a secret base in the area with the Lexington stumbling across this situation whilst charting the region.

The Nebula Class Starship put in at Starbase 375 at the end of her mission for resupply and upgrades. Whilst there, Admiral Ravenhorse recommended Jacen apply for the Assistant Chief Operations Officer position on the USS New York, a Nebula Class Starship. Ravenhorse, as it turned out, was good friends with the new installed Captain Wright and knew that he was looking for good officers.

In 2385, The New York was assigned to patrol along the Romulan Border, providing material and humanitarian aid to the Romulan Star Empire. After twelve months of aiding the Romulans, The New York was given a new assignment, exploring new boundaries and regions of the Gamma Quadrant. With relations between the Federation and the Dominion in a much peaceful state, the New York logged many star hours in the Gamma Quadrant, working alongside the Vorta to expand the reach and knowledge that Starfleet gained and also understanding new areas of this vast area of space.

After three years in the Gamma Quadrant, the New York returned to the Alpha Quadrant and docked at Deep Space Nine for new personnel and supplies. Whilst there, Jacen took shore leave and spent some time onboard the station, marvelling at how an old Cardassian station could have become the important outpost that it was. Whilst there, he learned of the creation of the Alrakis Pact: The coalition the Tzenkethi had formed with the Talarians and Breen.

Jacen did some digging and found out about ships exploring the Inconnu Expanse as a part of Task Force 72. Knowing that he already had the experience of dealing the Breen during his time on the Lexington, Jacen looked to try and secure a position on one of the ships in that fleet. Upon learning that Starfleet had re-activated the USS Sutherland and that she was looking for both Senior and Junior Officers, Jacen applied for the Chief Operations position on board, hoping for the chance to serve on one of the services more famous Nebula Class Starships.
