Alex was born on the USS Independence (New Orleans class). From there his family moved around to many other starships and planets where his parents accepted assignments. It was an adventurous life to say the least. He received high education from his father and his fellow science officers. The O’Conners had a natural knack for science and excelled in the subject. As a young boy, his favorite classes were science and history. His father would allow him to accompany him on non-hazardous science expeditions. Aedan had high hopes to see Alex join Starfleet as a scientist. Aedan was a highly accomplished scientist who was largely known in the Federation’s scientific community.
As Alex grew older, his interests seemed to gravitate towards his mother. Alenis joined Starfleet during the Dominion War. She missed out on most of the action due to attending the academy. Her family was always strong willed and had a long line of warriors in the Bajoran militia with stories of heroism during the Cardassian occupation. They were not nearly well known as Aedan O’Conner is in the Federation. Alenis was a security officer in Starfleet and a superb one at that. She noticed Alex began having interest in tactics when he reached his teens. Alex participated in holodeck programs depicting battles in history. Alenis and Alex would spend time in the holodecks learning what mom had to offer. She even ran Alex through some Starfleet security training scenarios. Alex impressed Alenis with his progress.
As Alex grew older and was approaching academy age Aedan kept pushing him towards becoming a scientist. Alex did not like to be pushed into doing something, and he enjoyed training on the holodeck vs being stuck in the science lab.
Alex joined the academy as soon as he could with the recommendations by high-ranking Starfleet officers. Alex did well for his studies and naturally was high scoring in security/tactical and science. The one area he was lacking in was engineering. He understood the scientific theory of most topics, but his mechanical skills were par at best. During his third year at the academy he was petitioned by his medical and science professors to study medicine.
Alex would have been the model student, but he enjoyed an adventurous social life. He found himself in the superintendent’s office on more than one occasion. He was once threatened to be put on probation on his last visit. After realizing the O’Conner name did not make him invincible, he calmed down on his extra activities.
