At age:

  • 12, he joined a junior Starfleet club, where he learned basic skills and protocols. Although introverted, Josh began forming friendships with other teens aspiring to be Starfleet cadets.
  • 16, Josh began seriously considering a career in Starfleet, inspired by his father's work and his experiences in the junior Starfleet club. He started focusing on the necessary subjects and developing his skills.
  • 18, enrolled in Starfleet Academy with average academic performance, majoring in engineering like his father and also taking the command track.
  • 23, helped retrofit an existing starship in spacedock for several months, under a project led by his father.
    • While the ship never left the Sol system, he gained valuable practical experience of day-to-day engineering operations and routine problems engineers face in the field.
  • 26, graduated Starfleet Academy with average marks in his engineering and command courses, but with strong recommendations from his instructors for his dedication and attention to detail. Specializations in: Replicators, Warp Systems, Holodeck Simulations, System Design and Programming.


  • Father: William Herrick, a Starfleet officer who specializes in engineering. He has a strong work ethic and a fascination with new technology. He encouraged Josh to follow in his footsteps and join Starfleet.

  • SD 239411.12 - Medical Officer: Lt Cmdr T'pana, MD, Starfleet Academy
  • Medical Assessment: Cadet Herrick recently experienced an acute claustrophobic attack during a confined space training simulation in the holodeck. It appears the highly realistic environment triggered an unexpected response. He was administered a mild sedative to alleviate his distress, which proved effective. It is recommended that Herrick participate in further counseling and controlled exposure therapy to help manage this newly discovered claustrophobia. His overall health remains stable, and this event should not impair his ability to perform regular duties, provided appropriate care and caution are observed during future training.

  • SD 239409.19 - Medical Officer: Lt JG Tillo Hah, MD, Starfleet Academy
  • Medical Assessment: Cadet Herrick has successfully passed all physical examinations required for admission to the Starfleet Academy. He maintains a healthy lifestyle and demonstrates a strong resilience to physical strain, likely a result of his regular exercise regimen and balanced diet. He has a noted shellfish allergy but has taken appropriate precautions to manage this. He shows no signs of any medical conditions that would prevent him from fulfilling his duties.


  • SD 239411.18 - Counselor: Ensign Zezena Sinaslo, Starfleet Academy
  • Counseling Assessment: Following the incident in the holodeck, Cadet Herrick has engaged in counseling sessions to manage his newly discovered claustrophobia. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy, we have been working on developing self-management techniques, such as controlled breathing and visualization, to help alleviate feelings of panic in confined spaces. He is developing a good understanding of his triggers and how to effectively manage his response to them. He is encouraged to continue practicing these techniques.
