None so far.
Born in Spain, Earth. He is the second son in a family of 4 members. Carl showed interested in electronic systems and propulsion since his childhood. This led him to study math and programming with interest, as well as physics. His mentors at school encouraged him to pursuit a career in Science and Engineering, where he could design and test new equipment, but he wanted to fill the sense of adventure in space, and not only to stay on Earth, inside a research facility.
He entered Starlet Academy with an interest in Components Engineering as specialization, and obtained pretty good grades in that major. In order to stay in line with his second passion, he decided to also take a course on Propulsion Systems but as listener student, in parallel to his main interest, being aware that this may add 2 more years to his graduation date. It was not easy for him, but at the end he finished his academic years with a solid formation in electronics and Warp engines. As a minor, he shown interest in Helm and Navigation.
Carl describes himself as a bookworm. Always trying to get acquainted with the latest technical details available. His room mates always complained about the several PADDS “distributed” everywhere in the room, and also about his late-night reading habits. Although in good physical shape, his body complexion was not entirely athletic, and slightly bald. From his Hispanic roots, a certain accent is noticeable, specially when pronouncing the 'R' and 'S'.
Sometimes temperamental, and prone to speak his mind openly when discussing engineering topics, he finds commanding officers a little bit intimidating. That was put in manifest during his Zero-G training, when he reacted by vomiting inside his EVA suit twice, after the Training Officer pushed him hard to execute the required maneuvers. Since then, he developed a “sixth sense” about nearby gravitational anomalies by means of his stomach.
One way to overcome this stressful situations is the ingestion of caffeine, which made him strongly dependent on that beverage. It was not uncommon seeing him having more than 4 rounds in a day.
Engineering and Science: When you really love what you do.
His entire life was one of playing and working with models, circuits and engines. This had taken him to take a major in Engineering, but the more he looked into the technical aspects, he realized that a solid science formation was required. If Engineering was the thing the kept starships working, Science was the required glue and fabric that allows Engineering to be. He tended to agree with historical remarks from other engineers such as the notorious Captain Montgomery Scott, who always claimed that being an engineer one "cannae change the laws of physics", but the more he studied the subject, the more convinced he became that although one cannot change said rules, one might be able to tweak them enough with the proper technology and time to perform new discoveries, to boost technology, or to end loosing the eyebrows in a cloud of smoke and sparks when the experiments failed.
Perhaps it was a matter of fate, perhaps it was only a matter of assigning personnel on those posts where the fleet needed. But now he was there, not as an Engineer, but as a Science Officer, in a region filed with wonders and fantastic civilizations. Once thing was for sure: he was there and he had work to do.
