General Information and Service Record
James Trikal was born on the Earth's only natural Satellite in the colony of Lake Armstrong. His Father, who was an operation's officer at a Starfleet station on the moon, often found a way to get his son to pilot in the flight simulator, which he quickly discovered James loved and seemed to be a natural pilot. When James was only 14, he began to pilot Starfleet training shuttles, and at 16 he began to shuttle various people around in-system on the weekends. In 2368, he entered the academy and focused on piloting and navigation. He graduated in 2372 as a lieutenant, junior grade, but in less than a year he made lieutenant and was assigned to the USS Archer as a helmsman. He later served aboard the USS Forester, and in 2375 was assigned to the USS Intrepid. There, James Trikal was a key figure in the T'Laulland incident just before the end of the Dominion War, the only dark spot in his record keeping him from promotion to lieutenant-commander. In 2377, he was offered a position by Captain Chris Harriman to become helmsman aboard the USS Dragon...
