His brown eyes, quite dark, peek out from under heavy brows. He is a rather hirsute man, with a thick pelt of glossy dark hair on most of his body. When not on duty he tends to wear jeans, and fitted t-shirts, or tank-tops, which show off his physique well. He has only one tattoo, a small trident, for Poseidon, God of the Sea, on the inside of his left wrist. He speaks with an almost undetectable Texas accent, and is left-handed.

Pre-Starfleet History

Pre-Starfleet History Tobias James Prescott, youngest child of the six-member Prescott clan, as it were, was born on October 7, in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Earth. His father, Michael, was a history professor for the local university, and his mother, Emily, was a microbiologist who was working on her doctorate. This, of course, meant Toby grew up in a rather intellectual environment and watched as his older siblings followed in the footsteps of their parents, seeking careers in the sciences, or academia as well. Oddly, however, Toby never felt any pressure to do the same.

Even as a child Toby was allowed to explore his own interests. He would spend hours swimming in the Gulf, playing in the dunes, or reading comic books in his room. He had a large group of semi-serious friends, and one person, Jacob, who was his best friend and could often be found getting into all sorts of random mischief with them somewhere around town.

In school Toby was a good student, on the AB honor roll for the majority of his school career, and, to his parents' relief, never being one to try to skip school. He discovered the field of marine biology when he was in the sixth grade, and began to devour every single piece of literature he could find about it in the school's database, eventually expanding that hobby to his home life as well. From that point on, nearly every book report, essay, or science project he did was focused on that field.

When Toby entered high school he applied for the advanced placement program and was accepted, putting him into college-level courses starting his freshman year. Because of this, he found that he was also eligible for early graduation, which would allow him to jumpstart his plans for his future career even sooner than expected. So, at the age of sixteen, nearly two years before many of his friends, Toby walked across the stage to get his diploma, and to the surprise of every family member, immediately applied to sit the entrance exam for Starfleet, becoming the first member on either side of the family not to pursue a degree, and a career in either the sciences directly, or working as a teacher of some sort.

Starfleet History

Starfleet Service History Six months later Toby was allowed to take the exam and was accepted readily as a cadet in the Science Division, with a focus on Marine Biology. Over the next four years, he would apply himself with zeal to his studies, and to the rigorous disciplines of the Academy. Getting up an hour early every day to get to the gym and grab a quick breakfast before his first class, learning to manage his time as well as possible to ensure he was getting everything out of the experience that he could, and also taking extension courses into other divisions so that he would have a good understanding of the basic operations of a Starship, as well as those he would be working with in those divisions.

When Toby graduated from Starfleet Academy he was immediately stationed aboard the USS Galileo, an old Miranda-class vessel fitted out as a training vessel for the science division of Starfleet, and with a crew of seasoned officers in charge of the new graduates. He would be assigned as a junior science officer, with a timeframe of one year. That, however, would fail to be true. After the one year was up, upon request from the ship's chief science officer, Toby would stay aboard the Galileo and be assigned as his assistant, tasked with ensuring that incoming officers were well situated, well-supervised and that their work was kept on track at all times. It seemed that Toby had shown a knack for not only science but also for team management.

That assignment would last until Toby was twenty-five, three full years further than it was supposed to, and take him through a rather rigorous crash course on all essential areas of managing a team of scientists on a starship. From there, now a junior lieutenant, he would be assigned to the USS Da Vinci, as the ship's assistant chief science officer, under T'Sera, a veteran Starfleet officer who had been working as a science officer in Starfleet for nearly seventy years. She would go on to give him a much longer, and more in-depth exposure to the core skills and behaviors that make up the daily life of a chief science officer aboard a starship, and with her exacting requirements, and no-nonsense approach to the work, she was the best teacher he'd ever had. When his time aboard the Da Vinci was up Toby was more than ready for what lay ahead.

Now at the age of thirty-one, having reached the rank of full lieutenant, Toby is assigned to the USS Nogura as her chief science officer.
