Personal History Born on Earth in June of 2349 to a pair of Surgeons. He was in medical school when the Dominion War began. When Earth was attacked it brought the horrors home as his Father was mortally wounded. His Father died four years later never recovering from his wounds. Mike was a surgeon by then and worked in a hospital near the convalescent home his Father was in. Horror stories from the Marquis/Cardassian border area were in the news often. Mike decided to help but his knowledge of alien medicine was limited.

In 2378 he went to the Starfleet Academy medical school to learn about treating the various alien races in and around the Federation. His playboy and party animal youth left behind when his Father was injured. He went to the Academy with a fervor for learning all he could. He took a near double schedule soaking in information to the denial of everything else.
Service Record Mike graduated from the Academy in 2382 and went as an Ensign to DS9 where he took assignment in the worst hit areas for the next six years. He would sign on for whatever new problem broke out in his efforts to avenge his father's death by saving lives.

In 2389 He took an assignment on Azel IV a mining town had some gastronomical problem so he volunteered to go check it out. In September of that year he heard about a mountain village named Curacao. They had a serious medical problem but he was ordered to stay out of the mountains. he was told it was too dangerous and no one went near that area.

Near the end of October the Asgard requested a field hospital! Rumor was they left a medical team out there where he had been forbidden to go. He immediately went to see the base commander. It took him several days to run down the elusive officer but when he finally did he received permission to join the medical team in Curacao... If he could get a ride out there!

31 October 2389 He met a pilot from the Asgard!
