=====Music & Other Passtimes=====
Zuriba is a trumpet player and he can often be heard playing "Bolian Blues" from within his quarters.
He also enjoys cooking, especially traditional Bolian recipes although because a traditional feature of Bolian cuisine is the use of meat that has been allowed to partially decay, Zuriba's crewmates rarely accept a dinner invite. Contrary to popular belief, the meat is always cooked. Seafood, both raw and prepared, comprises a significant majority of the average Bolian's diet, and on his own world it is said a Bolian can determine the type of fish and location of origin from taste alone. Zuriba's speciality dish is the cooking of an iridescent mussel-like shellfish is a particular delicacy, called a name that translates into Federation Standard as 'shimmershells'
Zuriba also excelled as a pilot at the Academy and eventually became a central member of the renowned Nova Squadron flight team before going on to serve as a helmsman in Starfleet.
Known as being a bit of a party animal, Zuriba's quarters ( whether at the Academy or on Starship assignment) often end up being party central where many can be found socialising and having a good time.
