Tholos was born aboard DS6 on the way back to Andor as his parents work required them to travel, however once Tholos was born they remained on Andor for most of his childhood, teaching him the ways of science and Andorian traditions. When he was 13 his parents started to travel between stations to work again, meaning that Tholos had plenty of time to tinker with systems and things on a Starbase but had also seen much of the Alpha quadrant by the time he went to study Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge on Earth. Once Tholos had earnt his master he travelled to research much as his parents had done, keeping in touch with them regularly and meeting up once a year.
Tholos was conducting some research on DS17 when the Battle of Eratis occurred, being one of the several Civilian scientists that volunteered to help Cara Maria against the Gorn. It was at that point he met the Terran Cheeky and formed a fast friendship with both of them, taking charge of a small team of scientists.
However a device they had been studying turned out to be a transporter relay, putting many heavily-armed Gorn among the undefended scientists. At the rage of seeing his team cut down Tholos went into a battle rage with his Ushaan-tors, killing several Gorn and buying time for him and some of the scientists to escape into the Jefferies tubes.
The Andorian stayed at DS17 to repair the systems at DS17 and was recommended by Cara Maria to join starfleet as enlisted personnel. Since then Tholos and Cheeky have served aboard the USS Independence-A and DS17. Currently he is studying the Academy program remotely in order to become an Ensign.
