Cameron’s mother, Mila, fled Bajor during the Cardissian Occupation. She escaped on a military transport ship with the help of a sympathetic Cardissian and transferred from ship to ship in hopes of making it to Federation space. One ship she transferred to had no intentions of helping her and instead sold her into the sex trade. She was not in the trade very long when she found herself on a small outpost at the fringes of Federation space where Cameron’s father, Joseph, who worked on a cargo ship as the ships engineer, happened to be passing by. Mila had caught the eye of a drunken Arkarian who complained he didn’t get the services he paid for and struck Mila. Joseph stepped in to defend the young Bajoran. The look in her eyes after he helped her said more than thank you, he saw the cry for help. Joseph found himself fleeing the outpost with Mila hidden in his quarters.
Cameron was born a year later. His first eight years of life were spent aboard the cargo ship his dad was working on. When his sister was born, his parents decided a cargo ship was no place to raise a family, and they moved back to Earth. Cameron’s mother who was not well educated raised Cam and his sister Kim, while his father found a job as a civilian engineer working for Starfleet.
From Cam’s early years, it was apparent he had an affinity for science. He was always designing experiments and taking apart things to learn how they worked. Cameron’s mother encouraged him to learn music, and Cam became very good at the Clarinet and French Horn. On Earth, Cam’s best friend was a half-Klingon, Katar, and the two of them were always in competition. Cam was not as gifted physically as his Klingon friend, but he pushed himself constantly to make up for his lack of genetic gifts. When Cam was 16, Katar died to a rare disease.
Cam closed himself off after Katar’s death. He never let anyone get close to him. It wasn’t that Cameron didn’t have many friends, he had many, he just didn’t let anyone get to know him. Cameron’s mother was always very honest with her history in the sex trade, and because of that, Cam has always felt he needed to protect women.
After graduating, Cam’s love for science fueled him to join Starfleet. Even at the protest of his mother, who wanted him to stay on earth, the call to seek out new life and explore new worlds was too strong.
