Commander Sean Silk
Name Sean Silk
Position Executive Officer
|Physical Description||A good looking fellow who keeps himself in shape.|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Many people in Starfleet think that Sean Silk is just an egocentric playboy, despite his years of service. He is renowned for being casually arrogant, apathetic, callous, and a hedonist who enjoys the finer things in life; namely drinking, gambling, partying and flirting. However, it is shown that Sean does care for people, especially his friends. Although Sean causes trouble on occasion, he is more than willing to make up for his mistakes, which is also why he became an executive officer. Eccentric, brilliant, outgoing and cocky, Sean is a classic playboy, with his wealth, power, and natural charm allowing him to get just about any woman he wants. But despite his rather carefree and overly confident personality, inside Sean's heart lies loneliness.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||A textbook example of a Byronic hero, he never fully let go of his character flaws, however, using them to push him forward as a reminder to do better and often making self-deprecating jokes or comments. Despite this attitude, Sean is an exceptionally brave and selfless individual as shown when he will single-handedly face an enemy armed with nothing but his fists without hesitation, a trait that earned him genuine respect as a hero.
Mainly a brawler with some mixed martial arts training due to the hand-to-hand courses at the academy. Not an expert in martial arts, but adequate when boxing and brawling. Since coming into the fleet Connor has trained in the holodecks with Security and Intel infiltration personnel to improve his melee and hand-to-hand skills. The months of hardcore training have improved his skills in these areas.
Eidetic memory: is an ability to vividly recall images from memory after only a few instances of exposure, with high precision for a brief time after exposure, without using a mnemonic device. Although the terms eidetic memory and photographic memory are popularly used interchangeably, they are also distinguished, with eidetic memory referring to the ability to view memories like photographs for a few minutes, and photographic memory referring to the ability to recall pages of text or numbers, or similar, in great detail. When the concepts are distinguished, eidetic memory is reported to occur in a small number of children and as something generally not found in adults, while true photographic memory has never been demonstrated to exist.
Eidetic imagery is the ability to remember an image in so much detail, clarity, and accuracy that it is as though the image were still being perceived.
Scholar Annette Kujawski Taylor stated, "In eidetic memory, a person has an almost faithful mental image snapshot or photograph of an event in their memory. However, eidetic memory is not limited to visual aspects of memory and includes auditory memories as well as various sensory aspects across a range of stimuli associated with a visual image."
SEAL: Starfleet Expeditionary Assault Legion. A small unit that Sean was a part of, eventually gaining leadership of a team during an operation. SOCOM (Strategic Operations COMmand) recognized his potential and he is now a classified Intel and Black Ops operative. His knowledge in various fields, and his special memory, make him ideally suited for a variety of missions.
|Hobbies & Interests||As would be expected of a person who lived a rough and ready life, Sean likes the dangerous and thrilling as a means of entertainment. Physical activities are also favored. Since the Dominion War, and making friends with numerous people, Sean has taken up practicing singing and playing certain instruments such as the guitar, both electric and acoustic, as well as playing drums. He has become quite talented with it since there was always downtime between missions, and not a lot else to do since his intellect often times had him finish academic assignments before he even left his post.|
|Service Record||Joined Starfleet at 19 yrs of age. Went through the Academy for Intelligence officer, cross training in both Engineering and Strategic Operations.
At 23, graduated the Academy with above average scores.
Assigned to U.S.S. Sovereign after a stint in Intelligence field work, in the Bajoran sector.
During his time as an Intelligence officer kept up on medicine and engineering, with emergency medicine taking the forefront. Reading journals from both in his spare time, staying caught up. Using this knowledge to better himself, and to shoot for Medical Officer (M.D.).
*Worked with 4 engineers from around Starfleet to redesign ionic conversion coils for more efficiency. They take in more kinetic energy than previous units, recharging their own dedicated batch of batteries. As long as they have energy to feed from they can recharge their own system. This has put his name in several engineering manuals and papers, which he keeps on the downlow. However, in his office there is a plaque hanging up and behind his head while he sits at his desk. Hidden in plain sight.*
Passed his online courses, receiving his Ph.D. in emergency medicine from Starfleet Medical.
