A cheery smiling type, not much appears to phase Seungi. He is a raging optimist, going out of his way to find amusement or joy in simple things, and thrives on travelling to new places and trying new things. While not the "best" or "ace" pilot on a ship, he is capable and gets the job done with few errors, though only so long as it can keep his attention. Because of this, his captains often have him participate in high-stress situations, as mundane tasks often result in Seungi's immediate boredom and inability to focus on what may be required.
Seungi has an intense love for hover-racing. He is a skilled driver and a self-confessed speed demon. Applying the skills acquired by racing hovercrafts to his Starfleet career brings him great pleasure, but he is often regulated to piloting shuttles or land vehicles.
Born January 30, 2370, and raised on the move, Seungi is a Starfleet brat. His parents were NCO blue-shirts during the 2360s, but separated in 2384.
Following in his parents' footsteps felt like an inevitability, and in 2389 he is granted a traineeship as a non-commissioned officer, shortly earning the rank of Crewman Second Class operating as a technician in the ship's science department. But, still uncertain about what he wanted to do, Seungi took a leave from Starfleet. He took on a Bachelor of Technology in 2391, and after successful completion was offered the rank of Ensign upon his return to Starfleet. He spends his career aboard the USS Paladin.
Transferred from the Paladin to Copernicus Station, Seungi has a stop-over at Star Station Esperance when the Paladin unexpectedly detours to Cait. He is asked to pilot the skeleton-crewed USS Veritas (under the temporary command of Wil Ukinix) to Walhalla Lock upon reports of a traffic build-up of ships while he waits for his transport to arrive. He participates in rescuing Veritas and other civilian ships caught in a temporal loop, and safely return to Star Station Esperance.
Due to the detour to the Walhalla Lock, Seungi misses his transport to Copernicus Station. Under the authority of Kinan Venroe, he remains aboard Veritas and serves as a temporary helm officer, piloting to Antor II. He serves as a temporary helm officer for Veritas as it travels to Antor II. He earns the ire of ship XO Sky Blake with a sarcastic remark.
While piloting the USS Independence-B, Seungi becomes distracted and accidentally pilots the ship into an entirely avoidable object, damaging the Independence's deflector array. He fails to arrive in time to fix and re-align the relay, and is caught by Tristam Core participating in a race against Amity Outpost's Terrellian representative, Cassa.
On stardate 239811.09, Seungi is transferred to the USS Constitution-B. His arrival at Starbase 104 occurs in a difficult time for the Constitution crew — the ship is being repaired due to damage from their previous missing, and their commanding officer Commodore Jalana Rajel has been kidnapped. Now a member of a ship's senior staff, Seungi is provided briefing materials on his journey and feels conspicuous from the fact he knows information most other Starfleet officers are currently unaware of. He is unable to locate the Chief of Security but is frequently informed they're busy. Instead, Seungi decides to go on a small tour. He overhears Lazarus Davis, Jacob Horne and Lystra discuss concealing a visual scanner and inadvertently interrupts them with an idea. The group introduce themselves, and direct him to speak with the First Officer, Commander Saveron.
Saveron has undergone a cosmetic procedure to look Romulan, and his appearance shocks Seungi (expecting a very Vulcan XO). Saveron explains Commodore Rajel's abduction by the Orion Syndicate and their intention to go undercover to rescue her. They briefly discuss Seungi's options regarding his appearance, but Seungi states there's little time to change much and uses his inexperience in the area to his advantage, intending to remain Human. Before he leaves, Seungi gives Saveron his sympathies regarding Rajel's kidnapping, informing the Vulcan what happened was not his fault.
Seungi uses the name "Kim Yeong-Ae" as his undercover persona. Unfamiliar with Romulan text, he spends a significant amount of time attempting to decipher and learn the controls of their Romulan vessel, the Ra'khoi, but falls asleep at the helm.
His father, Kim Yeong-ho, and mother, Kyo Ae, separated when Seungi was sixteen years old. Seungi recalls bouncing between his mother and father's quarters every fortnight. His parents, while amicable between themselves, often disagree and bicker about what they considered 'best' for him. His undercover persona name, "Kim Yeong-Ae", is a butchering of his parents' names together — which Seungi muses his father would be "miserably proud" of.
