added John and Marissa Richards
:'''The''' Richards family is small by modern standards due to the fact that both Alexander and Marissa are the only children of their respective parents. Furthermore all four parents (Gary & Harriet Richards, Michael & Maria Dawson) were also the only children of their respective families. This of course means that Alexander and Marissa have no aunts or uncles and therefore, no cousins.
<br>
:'''Maria Dawson''' having been a widow for (insert {{age calc template here later) |2377|7|21|2383|1|1}} years welcomed the marriage of her daughter to Alexander with open arms. Alexanders parents took an instant liking to Maria and the three now share a house in Tycho City, on the Lunar Colony. It has long been a Richards family tradition that the extended family live together where possible and despite being an in-law, Gary & Harriet decided that tradition applied to Maria more than it had to any family member in the past.
<br>
:'''When''' news of the birth of John Richards reached the family in Tycho City, there wasn't a dry eye for days. All three parents were over joyed that they had a grandson and threw a large party. The grandparents have yet to see john Richards face to face owing to travel times between Star Base 118 and Earth. However, the Richards family keep in constant contact through subspace communications.
*'''About''':
<br>
:'''Maria Gladstone''' was born to Marcus and Elizabeth Gladstone (nee Parkins) on the 16th of July 2330. She spent her early life growing up in a loving family environment in an apartment block located just one mile west of the city centrecenter. From an early age she showed a great aptitude for social interaction and never found herself without a group of close-knit friends. For her {{age|2320|7|16|2325|7|16}}th birthday Maria received a nurses play set and professed to her parents that she would one day become a nurse. Knowing this, both parents agreed to support and nurture this desire.
<br>
:'''When''' Maria began school, she found it challenging at first but by her {{age|2320|7|16|2328|7|16}}th birthday she was excelling in English, maths and science. However, whilst excelling in these subjects all the way through to high school she struggled with activities such as physical education and modern languages. Her parents opted to hire a tutor to help their daughter learn and appreciate various languages such as French and Vulcan. By her {{age|2320|7|16|2337|7|16}}th birthday Maria could speak fluent French, German, Japanese and Vulcan. Soon after her birthday, Maria graduated from high school with high enough grades to study at the University of Chicago where she opted for Nursing and General Medical Practices.

: '''Marissa''' Dawson was born on the 7th of September 2360 to parents Michael and Maria at Chicago Hope Memorial hospital. Her early years were spent mainly with her mother as her father's long work hours meant she woke up after he had left for work and was in bed before he got home. This in turn meant that she developed a strong bond with her mother whilst resenting her father.

:'''By''' the time Marissa began high school in the September of 2372, her fathers work schedule had decreased to an extent where he was finally able to spend time with his daughter. Although the relationship was icy at first, it soon warmed up and the pair began making up for lost time. By her graduation in 2377 Marissa was almost inseparable from her family. Unfortunately tragedy struck soon after the ceremony when her father was killed in an accident at his work place in Paris.

<br>
:'''John''' Richards was born to Marissa and Alexander Richards on the 13th of June 2386 whilst Alexander was in the process of transferring from Starfleet Academy San Francisco to the academy on Starbase 118.
<br>
:'''For''' the first few years of his life, he received the same level of love and attention from his doting parents however, upon his father's graduation, all of that changed. Whilst his father served aboard the USS Independence A (later the USS Tiger A) John stayed with his mother on Deep Space 17. This caused a small rift to develop between the pair which wasn't rectified until his father's resignation from Starfleet.
<br>
:'''Since''' his father's resignation from (and later re-commissioning in) Starfleet, the pair have spent a lot more time together. In early 2390 whilst Alexander was serving as the Assistant chief science officer aboard the USS Mercury, John broke his right leg whilst emulating his father's love of rock climbing by trying to climb over the desk units.

:'''The''' young man now spends his days between nursery, spending time with his mother and waiting for his father to come home.
