Personal History Dallas grew up in the forest backlands of earth, he worked with his dad as a farmhand, getting paid very minimal wage, and his family began to struggle financially. He assumes he got his selfless nature from his parents, being an only child they tried to give him the best childhood they could given their circumstances. When he turned 18 he left to join Starfleet, promising to help them with payments. He started off as an engineer, his help in R&D for some of the newer weapons and improvements earned him a notable reputation. Once he left enlisted and went for an officer position he realized how much he wanted to fly, like the stories his mom used to tell him. He went to be a fighter pilot but missed the recruitment window due to his lack of education in that field. He then began studying to become a helmsman, the idea of piloting the massive starships through the galaxy but also allowing for hard-working crew members to rest easy while he took control, made him happy.
