Keneth was born on Stardate 237402.18 at the Chicago Medical Center.
His father, David, was a researcher at the University of Chicago. His mother was a botanist from Canada. Somehow, his parents claimed, it had been an instant match.
From a young age, he had displayed a lot of interest in mathematics and his father had correspondingly taught him logical reasoning too – an experiment that failed miserably on his sister. But Keneth did learn – and that had become a defining trait for him – he could be incredibly rational and reason anything out. Or at least so he thought.
When he was three, the family moved to Mumbai, partially at his mother’s insistence and partially because his father had received a research opportunity there. It was there that Keneth realized that the majority of Earth really was identical, global culture was a real thing and that he would never find real diversity on Earth. It had been sacrificed for peace. Later, at twelve, they moved back to Chicago.
As he moved through high school, he grew bored of staring at the stars from a distance, calculating their lives to 128-bit triple point accuracy. He wanted to be near them, to feel the wonder of a discovery. He wanted to explore and a planet was too constraining. He wanted to meet people who were actually different. So he applied to Starfleet.
His family did not trust this to work – Starfleet had so low an acceptance rate it may as well be zero. He should just enlist they said, or better yet, study on planet – maybe join his father? Keneth almost started believing it. Then he was accepted. He had only one disappointment – he had wanted science, but he got engineering. He decided against switching majors later and instead minored in science.
The one notable feature of his academy time is his insistence on performing research. This lead to him forming a close relationship with Doctor Quinell Winslett, a propulsion researcher and one of his professors. He co-published a paper in his second year with the professor regarding transwarp fields, which began his love for propulsion. He later published papers on computation and a single study on navigational algorithms during a summer internship at the Daystrom Institute. His final year he published his thesis and a seemingly widely acclaimed paper on the effectiveness of key lime pie as ship based weaponry using transporter fields.
He graduated on stardate 239705.25 and was posted to the USS Juneau upon the completion of his training cruise on 239706.01.
