New Guy - backstory
Posted on Wed Jul 8th, 2020 @ 9:27am by Lieutenant JG Jordan Blackford
Every new crewman on a starship, looks to find somewhere for them to fit in. Some try to stand out at parties or in the mess hall. Some chase women. Or some just try to do their jobs to the best of their abilities.
The last one is what Jordan Blackford does best.
In every assignment, Jordan would throw himself into his work, whatever the engineering chief wanted him to do, Jordan did it the best he could. Be it doing a diagnostic on a console, or fixing a faulty piece of equipment, or fixing the drink dispenser in the captain's quarters, Jordan gave it 100% of his abilities.
His last 2 chiefs were impressed with his ability to size up a problem and find the solution quickly. This earned him the position of Diagnostic Technican on his last two ships.
There actually wasn't a position with that title, so his last 2 chief's created it for him. So anytime, something needed his abilities, Jordan was sent there, and he solved the issue quickly.
So now on his new assignment, the Horizon, Jordan had to find his niche.
