In order to explain better who Commander John E. Stone is to Cmdr Cura Assanti, one would have to dive back into both their past, which isn't mentioned in Cmdr John Stone's profile linked above.
When Cmdr Cura Assanti met John Stone aboard the USS Constitution, she was but a young Ensign fresh from the academy. Then Lieutenant Stone had all but rescued her from what the crew of the Constitution called initiation. For Cura it was being dunked in a dunk tank in icy cold water in her dress white uniform by her superiors. Then Lieutenant Stone rescued her from the dunk tank and carried her sopping wet all the way back to her quarters. Yet to be quite honest they had met before that.
In a holodeck aboard Starbase 118, Ensign Cura Assanti had started a fencing program too practice what her father had taught to her. Lt. Stone had barged into this program and the two sparred, not really knowing one another very well. After the dunk Tank rescue, Cura and Jon became casual friends.
It wasn't until the R and R visit to what became known as the Camping planet and later named Kepos Prime, that Cura and John's relationship began to flourish into something deeper.
One thing Lt. Stone had always warned Cura about was his professionalism. He was so into the rules and regulations of Star Fleet that he seldom smiled or gave any impression that he was havinig good time. Thus he had gotten the nickname "Stone Cold" After their adventures on the camping planet where Stone actually saved her life from falling while they had gone mountain climbing, Cura had found it challenge to melt some of his "ice-cold" exterior away.
After many dates and missions together, they were soon knee deep in a love affair. It was after Cura's Lt. Cmdr's test on the mission to Cardassia Prime that John Stone realized he loved her very much.
The pair had that untouchable chemistry that is seldom attained in most relationships. It was as if they both knew one another thoughts so well that every time they were together it was art in motion.. Their love was not to last, however. Time circumstances and SFI tore them apart forever...
They pair did marry but it only lasted a few good years. Yet out of their union a baby boy came into the universe, John Jr....
