History

Personal History Khylin was born on Earth to Asia and Jennifer Cooper. Asia was a prominent biologist and Jennifer was an anthropologist. Khylin was an only child and the apple of his mother's eyes. When he was 12, they moved off Earth to Deep Space 14, where both his parents were contracted out by Starfleet to work on a new digsite that had been discovered on Numberis II. Khylin could often be found at the digsite, sometimes helping his mothers or at other times being a direct hindrance.

There weren’t many kids his age on either Deep Space 14 or Numberis II so Khylin was home schooled. Khylin immersed himself in studying. Without any other children his age, his only friends seemed to be the characters and lessons that he found in his studies and books. At this time he also took up an interest in both singing and dancing. He taught himself to play the guitar.

He followed his Asia’s path and delved into studying everything about biology. He took a special interest in botany and biomechanical engineering. He wasn't very athletic, although he found himself drawn to rock climbing. Khylin eventually applied to Starfleet Academy, mostly as a way to see a world beyond Deep Space 14 and Numberis II.

When he arrived at the academy, Khylin was a little overwhelmed. Having had little to no experience dealing with peers his age, he spent his freshman year keeping to himself. It wasn’t until his second year that he found himself coming out of his shell. He joined the academy swim team as well as the archery team. His mother’s were alarmed at the sudden and somewhat violent way that their son chose to finally socialize, however they were happy to see him finally coming out of his shell. He also realized that he had a talent for music/dance and was heavily involved in most musical productions while at the academy.

Khylin threw himself into his studies at the academy much like he did when he was back in high school. He made a few friends but mostly stuck to his studying, swimming, and archery. Khylin excelled in the more biological based sciences, earning high marks in exobiology, botany, and biomechanical engineering. He wasn’t as strong in areas like astrophysics, although still got an A or a B in most of his classes. He graduated at the top of his class.

Service Record His first assignment was on Starbase 74 as a member of the base’s research department. He was assigned to the biological division and spent the first year of his assignment studying the effects of temporal radiation on a variety of plant life. Despite his rather brilliant scientific mind, Khylin was still having trouble relating to his peers. While on an away mission to a nearby moon, Khylin’s away team came under fire from a group of Gorn pirates. Khylin used his knowledge of the local flora to lure them into a field full of plants that secreted a highly toxic corrosive chemical. This slowed them down long enough for most of the away team to escape. However, one ensign was wounded and fell behind. Khylin returned for him, suffered a phaser wound on his leg and helped the ensign escape. Because of his bravery and his budding leadership talents his CO, Commander Marcus Wyvern, recommended him for the open chief science officer post on the USS Omaha.
