Personal History

 

Childhood and adolescence

 

Born in Boston Massachusetts, Ryan was raised primarily in Corky’s, a pub that had been in his mother’s family for generations. Although his younger sister Annie followed the family tradition, Ryan dreamed of joining Starfleet.
 

Starfleet Career

Ryan was accepted to the academy on his first try, and enrolled as a Marine cadet. During his training, he met an Acamarian named Tobin Thule, and the two became lifelong friends.

After earning their commissions, Ryan and Tobin moved on to Aerospace Combat School, where they earned their respective call signs. Ryan’s instructors named him “Oddball” for his quirky behavior, while Tobin became known as “Frosty” for his grace under fire. Oddball and Frosty worked together so well that they decided to remain partners.

After graduation, Oddball and Frosty were assigned to a squadron aboard the Akira-class USS Reagan, where they served for five years. In 2383, the Reagan’sCO received an invitation to send his best pair to attend Starfleet’s Marine Aviation & Weapons Tactics Program. Frosty and Oddball were his first choice, as the two of them had broken nearly every squadron record in various war games.

During their AWT training, Tobin and Oddball won nearly every engagement against their instructors. They did so well in the points standing that they graduated in second place, still a respectable feat.

Frosty and Oddball’s training and experience landed them a plum assignment after AWT – an elite squadron attached to the fleet’s first Sovereign class carrier, the USS Poseidon, flagship of Starfleet’s first Carrier Group. Frosty soon became romantically involved with Liza Monroe, the ship’s Chief of the Deck.

Later that year, Carrier Group One was dispatched to investigate a distress call originating from a wormhole. The wormhole delivered them to the Outer Perseus Arm, and promptly collapsed behind them, remaining only partially open.

Podakyne March, one of Poseidon’sjunior Science officers, pioneered a method of sending a transporter signal through the wormhole. This allowed Starfleet to lay the groundwork for a permanent base in the region.

In the course of only a few months, the Carrier Group had helped bring stability to the region, and helped the major powers of the region form an Alliance to combat a common threat. By this time, Frosty had been promoted to Major, and placed in command of the Poseidon’sair group.

Eventually, a terrorist organization infiltrated the Poseidonand stole the Elosian Egg, an artifact of incredible power. They also killed two of the crew in the process. Starfleet Command ordered the ship’s CO, Commodore Travis Christopher, to ignore the attack.

Christopher responded by resigning his commission and setting off in search of the Egg. Although Christopher had intended to go alone, Frosty and several other officers followed him. After Frosty’s resignation, Oddball briefly partnered with an Andorian pilot named Spooky, and flew with her until the end of the Kell War.

When the war ended, Oddball transferred to the front seat. At this time, he was partnered with his current WO Anna “Pixie” Calvin (3/4 Human, ¼ Vulcan).

Oddball and Pixie were among the members of Poseidon’screw who transferred back through the Dalan wormhole when their CO Paula Chapman-Stark was ordered home. They returned to Earth, where they qualified on Gryphon-class fighter/bombers.

After completing their Gryphon training, Oddball and Pixie were assigned to the 12thFighter Squadron, along with several of their friends. The 12thwas stationed aboard the USS Avalonat the time of the ship’s launch.

Since the Avalon’sinitial deployment, Oddball and Pixie have remained part of the 12thFS. Oddball eventually became romantically involved with Danna “Vixen” Tyree, squadron leader of the 421stout of Mandukar Base. He has recently been promoted to the Squadron XO position.
