Personal History Since a young age, Henry has been fascinated with the mind and how it works. Not just the human mind, but the Vulcan mind and it's logic, or the Denobulan mind and it's need for social interaction. His parents, descendants of German sailors, wished for at least one of their children to make it into Starfleet. Lucky for them, joining Starfleet offered their eldest child, Henry, the opportunity to carry on the family legacy, but also to indulge his curiosity into alien psychology. When he graduated from the Academy 4 years later, and just before the end of the Enterprise mission, he had earned the title of Valedictorian of his class. Soon after his graduation, he was sent to the USS Ericson as a low-ranking science officer, as the ship was merely a border escort vessel and had no need for a Counsellor or psychiatrist. 3 years later, he earned a promotion to Ensign, transferring off the Ericson and onto the Venture, one of the first NX vessels deployed after the Enterprise and Columbia. The Venture was sent to assist one of the stalling fronts of the Earth-Romulan war, engaging in several battles. Henry again served as a science officer, his dream of becoming a professional counselor apparently falling by the wayside. After about 4 years on the Venture, he was promoted to Lieutenant JG, serving two more years aboard the Venture after the finale of the war. At last, soon after the foundation of the new interstellar alliance known as the Federation, Henry was finally able to pursue counselling, being assigned to the USS T'Pau as their Chief Counselor, one of the first Federation vessels comprised of a vastly mixed crew. He knows that humans, Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites have their fair share of differences, and will do his best to prevent any emotional trauma between the four races on the ship.
