Character History

By the time he was six years old, Daniel already knew what he wanted to do with his life. He was inspired by his father to become a Starfleet officer, even though his mother wanted him to become a physician. In high school he achieved top grades and was thought of as a very hard working, conscientious person, always putting others first. He was known for constantly questioning teachers and sometimes coming out on top. As a member of his school's running team, he competed in many events. Whilst at Buckie High School Daniel made a friend for life, Kristopher Mann; they have continued to support each other through their chosen careers. When Daniel broke the news to Kris, that he had applied for the academy, he was devastated, and this in turn affected Daniel. They both mutually agreed they would still be there for one another even when they had parted. They see each other as much as possible, but it is difficult given Daniel's chosen career.

Daniel went into denial over his father's death and vowed to avenge the loss. He overcame his denial through an unlikely bonding with a young Klingon boy, Artok. They formed a friendship that could never be defeated, and both boys stayed in touch despite going their separate ways. As a result of this friendship, Daniel has become very fluent in Klingonese and enjoys many Klingon rituals.

After leaving school, he took a six month break to visit Qo'noS and support his friend Artok, as he joined the Klingon Defense Force. After this, he submitted his papers for the Academy and gained entrance.

Likes

Cadet Cruise

  • Daniel's cadet cruise was served aboard the Nebula class vessel USS Invincible, under the command of Captain Kelly Ching. During his time aboard the vessel, Daniel carried out different activities, although these were mainly in his trained post as a Security Officer. He saw his time on the vessel as a learning experience and a chance to see how the real world operates.
Stardate 238302.08: Daniel served with a remarkable enthusiasm for his job, something I admire in a person. Many officers spoke to me about to Cadet Woods' remarkable ability to perform what was asked of him. During his time aboard the Invincible, Daniel took part in battle drills, intruder alert simulations, Brig and Armory operations and, notably, the day to day Security of the ship. It has been a pleasure having him serve his cruise aboard the Invincible and I wish him well for the future. - Lt. Vicki Brown

Command School - Year One

  • After studying his options and weighing them against his ambitions and goals, Daniel decided to remain at the Academy and continue his studies at Command School. He found year one the most boring as it was mainly lectures and seminars, although during that time he learned a lot about how command should work. His background of helping others and his minor in Communications/Operations were greatly beneficial in this part of the course.

Command School - Year Two

  • Year Two saw Daniel flourish as a budding command potential. Simulation after simulation saw Daniel lead the crew and help the crew in times of crisis. Daniel's time on the Invincible had held him in good stead and certainly kept him flowing in enthusiasm till the end of the course.
Stardate 238309.05: I have seen many young Ensign's pass through my doors over the years, a lot of them still arrogant and cocky. However there's always the exceptional minority that are born to lead others through bad times and others, I truly believe great things could become of this young man, if he sticks at it and produces only the best, much in the same way he has given me these past two years. I hope one day to here of this young mans success and place with the rest. Such as Kirk, Picard and Janeway. This young man has an extraordinary ability to lead and his manner and work ethic is certainly one to be proud of and admired. I wish him every luck for the future and hope he makes his Commanding Officers proud like he has made me. - Prof Enrique Shriver
