Pholin has been a friend of Ben’s since he arrived on the ship. He was one of the first to welcome him aboard. Pholin has given Ben great advice and Ben knows that he can trust Pholin with just about anything.


It all started in central Pennsylvania for Ben. He wanted to be a part of starfleet since he first saw Archer’s speech about the federation in history class in elementary school. It was his dream to captain a ship and be the best officer there ever was. After his high school graduation, he applied to Starfleet Academy. When he was asked about what he wanted to study/ what post he wanted to have, he realized that he hadn’t thought it through that far. He asked for a few days to think about it, thanks to the grace and leniency that starfleet had for him. He read through many of ship’s records. Especially the battles. He was fascinated by temporal mechanics as well. The more and more he thought about it, he realized that the amount of enjoyment he got out of reading about the fighting done by Starfleet, he wanted to do Security. With a little bit of dabbling in Temporal Mechanics and Tactical. He returned to the academy and picked his field. He did well in all his classes. But, that would all change during his final. He became cocky due to his outstanding performance in class and blew off studying for his final exam. That had him stuck on problems for a very long time. He passed, but not with flying colors. It was more like he passed waving a white flag. His final scarred him to make him nervous about everything. But, who knows where his skills will take him.
