Personal Profile

  • Height: 5'11
  • Weight: 185 lb
  • Hair: Brown
  • Eyes: Brown
  • Build: Athletic


Born in Nova Scotia to a traditional Nova Scotian household on the island of Cape Breton, James grew up learning the sustenance farming and fishing lifestyle. He grew up learning how to fix the technology that kept the farm running and, when all was in working order, fishing and sailing off the coast in the Atlantic Ocean.

In his teenage years, he felt the call to leave Cape Breton Island to pursue a life in Starfleet. He gained admittance into the Academy and double-majored in combat methodologies and philosophy, choosing to stay for a graduate program in philosophy after graduation rather than being assigned directly to a post. The philosophy graduate program is a four year program, of which James has completed the first two years. The first two years are all extended coursework at the Academy. The second two years consist of the writing of a dissertation and assignment to a duty post that complements the dissertation. James was assigned to the USS Columbia as a Tactical Officer at the beginning of his third year, his current position.

While in the Academy, James earned his black belt in hapkido and certificates in other forms of martial arts. He continues to practice these martial arts, and when he gets use of a holodeck will often run programs aboard historic sailing vessels or playing hockey. Otherwise, he can generally be found with his nose in a book or on a PADD working on his dissertation.


  • Father: William Colquhoun
  • Mother: Ann Colquhoun (née MacNeely)
  • Brother: Seamus Colquhoun
  • Sister: Abigail 'Abby' Colquhoun


Assigned to the USS Columbia with Ensign Gottci, the two have been casual acquaintances as they learn their way around the ship. They continue to hang out on a regular basis, the crass Iotian personality somewhat tempered by the much more agreeable Canadian's nature.

James and Jona were briefly roommates aboard the Columbia and continue to be friends.

Nelis and James share a love of sailing, and can be found sailing in the holodeck from time to time.

Hijin is a regular attendee of James's biweekly martial arts classes held aboard the Columbia, finding himself often the "volunteer" for technique demonstrations.

  • Tobias

Tobias is the head bartender in The Look Outt. James can often be found at the bar, discussing drink recipes and generally chatting with Tobias during his off hours, the two having become good friends over drinks.
