Ambitions and Goals

Originally, Dave had set out to become a trade securities investigator, which he had spent a number of years doing before coming to Starfleet. Once in the Fleet, he concentrated primarily on his job while finding out his personal goals opening up needed to be addressed. Over the course of the two to three years Dave has served with the Fleet, his goals have been met in some areas, have still a ways to go in others. He's seen the changes within himself since joining Starfleet.

Coming back, David's focued on reintegrating himself into the Fleet and plans to enjoy himself along with meeting and working with old and new friends. He does plan to recover the chunk of time he can't remember as well as address the flashes of faces and places he knows he's never met or been to. Having been in command, David's not opposed to returning to it, but there's no rush or urgency. He may step in now and again when he's needed, but his immediate goal is to get back and get to know his new crew with new adventures ahead to learn more.

Personal Achievements and Disappointments

The greatest personal achievement Dave ever made was reconsiling his inner struggles with emotional ties and being open. He was somewhat successful in combating his chronic insomnia (which has been surprisingly absent since returning). However, David still hasn't been so lucky with the relationship department. He counted his dedication to his career as one of the dominant factors. At the moment, he's moreorless certain he's destined for eternal bachelorhood. One of his greatest joys is watching B'Sara grow into a strong young women.

Family

David's family consists of an Aunt and Uncle (Nathaniel and Rachel Prewitt) still living on Earth and running the family business, along with a pseudo-adopted sister, Deboarh Turow, who runs the family business back on Mars. His other uncle, Amwin Jennett disappeared after he was disowned from the family.

Spouse

  • Marital Status: In a Relationship

Children

  • Daughter: B'Sara Cavann**
    • Technically B'Sara is not David's biological daughter. He became her guardian not long after she was born and forged a father-daughter relationship. As far as he's concerned however, B'Sara is his daughter.

Parents

Siblings

  • Sister (non-related): Deborra Turow'endial
    • Deborah moved in with the Cody family when she was sixteen. While she was never officially adopted, she is as much as a Cody as she is a Turow'endial.

Important Relationships

Romantic Relationships

In 2384 David met a rising chief engineer, then Lieutenant Quinn Reynolds that sparked an instant attraction, despite their respective bad luck in the romance department. Their relationship was brief, interrupted by a clone replacement of Reynolds during a Breen resurgeance and David's command-focused career derailed future plans. She left for Starbase 118 not long after.

Less than two days after returning to Starfleet in August of 2389, David swept his commanding officer, newly minted Captain Kali Nicholotti into a dance that did more than just waltz across the floor, kindling deeper feelings and a strong attraction during a formal dinner and promotion celebration. Over the course of the incident within the Thracian Alliance and the Klingons during the crisis, David found himself drawn deeper towards his commanding officer, cultimating with the Victory's return to the StarBase and sharing his feelings with her. In November of 2389, they made the decision to move in together after Kalianna died a second time, only to be revived by an ingenious Doctor Johanna MacLaren where they spent the night together in the Recovery Room of the USS Victory.

Personal History

Full Article: David Cody Personal History

Born in 2352, David is the only child of civilian engineer Barnes Cody and his wife, Barbara Jennet, the founder and owner of Jennet Trade Securities Corporation (JTSC). His childhood was filled with the sweeping sand dunes and the colony cities of Mars, where he had attended primary and secondary education, and could usually be found helping his father rebuilt machines or out cave diving, one of his loved pastimes from youth. He had the opportunity to help his father restore an old Forerunner shuttlecraft (which would later be identified as the JTSC-3 Prototype), and given the location of the house, which was outside of the city, he was very much an outback child getting a mix of both the old and the new.

The Fate of the Independence-A

The USS Independence-A was lost to the Mirror Universe due to excessive damage caused by the combined might of two major powers. Fleet Captain Sidney Riley set the auto self-destruct, but the ship did not implode and instead was last seen drifting into the vastness of space in November of 2388. Whether or not the ship succumbed to the elements cannot be ascertained, or whether or not it fell into another fissure of space time. It may be still adrift and lost to time, or it may have piece by piece fallen apart. [1]

The Fate of the Independence remains a mystery.
