Pre-Starfleet History

Van Lars Kolbeck was born in the year 2356 to parents Erickson Lars Kolbeck and Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck. Mr. Erickson is retired living along with his wife, Mrs. Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck on Earth. Both live in the Scandinavian nation-state of Norway. The Kolbecks both worked in asteroid mining, purifying rare metals for Starships and warp core dilithium development.

Van is the eldest of two children. Born in the City of Oslo along with his sister Silje Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck in 2357. Early on the Kolbeck children were raised by the Family Nanny Anneliese Sanna Blomqvist who was 61. The Kolbeck children were raised by the Family Nanny as their parents were often away on assignment at Hanolan Colony in the Alpha Quadrant. Trying at times for Anneliese, the Kolbeck children were energetic. Anneliese helped the Children spend their seemingly limitless energy on competitive sports.

Education and study were the first constants within the Family. The Kolbeck taught their children that success and achievement were a prerequisite to receiving their fondness and love. While some Families may view this dynamic as being cruel, Van excelled in the tough love environment provided. Mathematics, Spatial field physics, and Astrometric sciences all interconnected into Van's love for the engineering science fields.

Sport is a significant force in Van's life. Having put on ice skates at the young age of four years, he quickly excelled at winter sport such as Hockey, Skiing, Triathlons and Mountain Biking. While it's hard to escape the technological encroachment of living life in the 24th century, Van remains grounded. Reconnecting with nature and his home, the many natural surrounding fjords, and Norwegian forests help relax him.
Pre-Starfleet History
Early on in life, Van decided he had wanted to live and work aboard a starship. His parents both became an inspiration to him, having worked at an orbital mining facility at the Federation Hanolan Colony from 2351 to 2373. The constant challenges and adventure energized his thirst for space travel. Above all the Kolbeck's Family knack for ingenuity and family studies fueled Van’s desire to leave Earth and seek a career challenge of the Engineering kind.

Having spent his early teenage years preparing for his Star Fleet entrance exam, Van was confident when he arrived at Relva VII. At the training and assessment facility, he completed various tests including dynamic relationships, hyperspace physics and the Caldrum IQ with notable success.
