Captain Halloway

Bio: Captain Thomas Halloway



Education – StarFleet Academy: astronavigation; Starfleet Tactical College


Background – Born in Cassini, a domed city on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. The only child of a UFP bureaucrat of British descent and a Russian physical trainer, he lived on a number of worlds. After the death of his father in 2342, Halloway and his Russian mother remained on Pacifica where he became a beach enthusiast, avid swimmer, and occasional lifeguard. He travelled to Earth in 2348 to participate in the 110th Olympic Games, but failed to place. While continuing his training, he joined the United States Coast Guard, gaining a love for naval history, artifacts, and tradition. (For this, his crews have taken to addressing him as "skipper".) He made a successful swim of the English Channel in 2350, the same year he gained sponsorship to Starfleet Academy. He was granted dispensation to compete in the 111th Olympic Games and fared better, earning silver in two events.


Personal – Halloway is unmarried, with no children. He can be described as a charismatic, driven individual, and has proven to be popular with his crews. He has few close friends, although his career has brought him in contact with a number of Starfleet notables, including Captain Jean-Luc Picard whom he admires. He has a reputation for enjoying the companionship of women, although never from among his own crew. Unconfirmed rumors have paired him with Captain Sofia Virago, formerly of the Excalibur; Admiral Kathryn Janeway, an Academy classmate; and even Vice Admiral Alynna Necheyev. For fitness, Halloway maintains a daily swimming regimen on the holodeck. He is a skilled pianist, with a particular love of Tchiakovsky.


Career History - In a relatively short time, Thomas Halloway accumulated a noteworthy military record and was considered a premiere "fasttrack" officer. As an ensign, he distinguished himself aboard the Nogura during the brief war with the Tholians. His next assignement included engagements during the Talarian frontier conflict. In 2363, he was disappointed to lose out to Jean-Luc Picard for command of the Enterprise-D (ST:TNG, "Tapestry", see also Star Trek Encyclopedia: Halloway, Captain Thomas) . He commanded the Ambassador-class Yorktown during several tours along the Cardassian border, earning an aggressive reputation with that race. In 2370, he assumed captaincy of the Galaxy-class Victory from Admiral Saylek, establishing a continuing rivalry with the Vulcan. After guiding Victory through a wide range of diplomatic and military missions, the ship was badly damaged by the Borg in their second battle above Earth, a battle in which Halloway also witnessed the destruction of the Ambassador-class Yorktown. During the Dominion War, he was pressed into service for several months as CO of Starbase Aegis. In this capacity, he launched a strike which led to the liberation of the Canar Sector. Afterward, he assumed command of the Sovereign-class Yorktown, which has conducted tours of Gamma Quadrant and Cardassian space.

Command Style - Captain Halloway's command style is warm, but not relaxed. He demands a formal atmosphere on the bridge, but prefers friendly, direct conversation in briefings. He prefers to delegate away missions to other officers, considering the best application of his skills to be aboard ship. He has lost a regretable number of XO's over the course of his career, and has maintained friendships with those who survived the honor.

Since it's been awhile since my last Aegis appearance, I updated my bio accordingly.
