- Others: His Uncle Bill (also called William Rogers!) is a retired SFMC Commander and has instilled in Will a strong sense of duty and honor.
5' 7" tall weighing 180 pounds. His short brown hair and piercing blue eyes reflect his Celtic background. He appearance is stocky with well developed muscles. He obviously keeps himself in peak condition and moves with the grace of a trained warrior giving off a vibe of barely contained energy that could explode at any moment.
At the beginng of his career the shortest description of Will was "intense". He trained since an early age to be a warrior. He was trained to constantly look for the danger and calculate a plan of action. Like most military types he was most happy when he is in motion doing something. Sitting around is not something he did well. He is still action orientated and struggles with purely academic activities that do not have an application. He believes strongly in the Federation and has been known to get misty eyed when the Federation Flag is raised.
His guiding ethos is honor. While he has lost none of that intensity maturity has clamed him by degrees. He is deeply concerned for others and now seeks a peaceful outcome while still fulfilling his duties as a Security Chief and a member of Starfleet.
Born on New Glasgow, a frontier world settled by Scottish families. Will was heavily influenced by his Uncle Bill a decorated Marine Commander. Uncle Bill trained Will in the martial arts from the age of 4, especially in Japanese swordsmanship and the art of Aikido. He has been raised on stories of honor and valor in battle. However, he is also aware of the price paid in blood and lives lost that is the defense of the Federation by generations of Rogers. Will has a huge extended family and enjoys his interaction with his extended family. His parents delayed his joining Starfleet and it took many arguments before he finally got his wish and applied.
While assigned to the USS Ronin Will matured as an Officer and a individual. He was promoted twice while serving on the Ronin gaining the ranks Lt Jg and full Lieutenant. Appointed to Chief of Security he has begun to realise that there is value in looking for non violent means to resolve conflicts. The many deaths suffered by Security have made him question the price paid during violent confrontation.
Most pleasing and surprising of all to Will is the relationship formed with Sarion the civilian consultant on board the Ronin. Despite their initial encounter where Will tried to toss her out of a staff meeting as a Security threat their relationship has slowly blossomed. Sarion agreed to leave the Ronin and accompany Will to the Independence rather than end their relationship.
By 238602 several changes have occurred in Will's life. Promoted to Lieutenant Commander he has finally made peace within himself with regards to his desire to Captain his own vessel in the future and found a new level of strength and maturity in his role as Chief of Security. For the first time he has branched out from a Security role and has begun developing an understanding of ship Operations.
The deepening relationship between himself and Sarion and his family’s expectations of the relationship was dealt a fatal blow after a terrorist attack on DS-17. While his mother and sister survived the attack his sister never fully recovered from the psychological effects.
As a result of the attack Will threw himself into his duties in an attempt to bring those guilty to justice. After a period of time Sarion and Will drifted apart. Will continued to fulfil his duties with single minded determination and Sarion left to travel the galaxy.
The transfer to the USS Eagle as her First Officer is the chance for a new beginning for Will. Will's first mission abord the USS Eagle is also the last and the crew are transferred across to the USS Drake during shore leave.
It is during this shore leave that an unexpected relationship begins to develop between Will and the ship's andorid Chief Engineer Lt Pandora.
The USS Drake proves to be a challanging assignment with ever larger tasks demanded of the old ship and it's crew.
