|Personal History||Lucas Titus Miles grew up in Dahkur Province on Bajor, the only child to divorced parents. He lived with his mom - a botanist, and gained an appreciation for agricultural science and botany. However, it was his father who introduced in the young Lucas a love for space, and in flying in particular.
Drake Gates was a Captain with the Earth Cargo Service who commanded various cargo ships and would often take the young Lucas miles on both short and long hauls.
Upon graduating from the University of Bajor with a post-graduate degree in political science, Lucas briefly worked as a public servant for the Bajoran government before following in his father's footsteps and enrolling in the Earth Cargo Service as a pilot for four years.
During one of the long haul supply runs to a frontier colony, Lucas' freighter was attacked and destroyed by unidentified alien ships. He along with the 12-member crew would have perished had the USS Orion not come to their aide. Lucas was so impressed by the bravery and dedication of the men and women of the Orion that he enrolled in Stafleet a few months afterwards.
Now a newly minted officer as a recent graduate of the Stafleet Academy, Lucas is eager to demonstrate his skills and training to the test.
