Personal History Born and raised on Volon III, Dorian always had a knack for assembling, disassembling, and reassembling machinery. He planned on becoming a farmer and spent most of his young adult life doing so, but over time he realized that he spent more of his hours repairing the equipment and rebuilding things to improve efficiency than he did actually farming the land. In 2370, with the Cardassian sabotage of the Federation Colony, Dorian was encouraged to join Starfleet. At 39 years old, he was seen as a father figure to some of the young cadets. An introvert, he didn’t make many close friends, but the Academy pushed him out of his comfort zone to join study groups and participate in social events.
Service Record Upon graduating from the Academy, he was assigned as an Ensign to the USS Spectre, an older ship with a linear dilithium-controlled matter/antimatter reaction assembly. A year later, he was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade, and a year later to Lieutenant, at which time he was transferred to the Sequoia class USS Yellowstone.

After five years aboard the Yellowstone, he was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and given the role of Chief Engineer. In 2382, he was transferred to the USS Lionheart to replace Lieutenant Kader(?).
