GENERAL HISTORY

    LT(JG) ZAME TURNER LATTA WAS BORN ON JULY 7, 2282, THARSUS CITY, MARS. HIS PARENTS WORKED A FEDERATION CARGO, WHERE AT AN EARLY AGE HE LEARNED TO FLY ANYTHING FROM SHUTTLECRAFT TO D CLASS CARGO SHIPS. IN 2302, HE JOINED STARFLEET ACADEMY, WHERE HE ACHIEVED AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE IN LEISURE STUDIES. AFTER SF ACADEMY, HE JOINED THE MARINE ACADEMY, THUS BECOMING ONLY ONE OF A FEW OFFICERS TO COMPLETE BOTH COURSES. IN 2306, HE WAS ASSIGNED TO THE USS BUCKNER NCC 602. EARLY IN 2310 THE BUCKNER WAS REPORTED LOST, CAUSE UNKNOWN WITH ALL HANDS. A LATER SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSION ONLY TURNED UP A FEW SMALL HULL PLATES, BUT NO POSITIVE RECOGNITION OF THE VESSEL. THEN IN 2378, THE BUCKNER REAPPEARED, ALMOST, LITERALLY ON TOP OF THE USS PASSAIC, IN THE SAME REGION OF SPACE WHERE IT DISAPPEARED. THE CREW HAS NO RECOLLECTION OF THE INCIDENT THAT SENT THEM 70 YEARS FORWARD IN TIME, AND THE VESSELS COMPUTER LOGS HAVE FAILED TO SHED ANY LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT. AN UNUSUAL "SIDE EFFECT" OF THE CREW’S TEMPORAL TRANSPLANT IS THAT THEIR AGING PROCESSES HAVE SLOWED DOWN TO THE POINT WHERE ONE YEAR FOR THEM, IS A THOUSAND FOR THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE. A BOARD OF INQUIRY WAS CONDUCTED, AND EXONERATED THEM FROM ANY WRONGDOING IN THE INCIDENT. LT(JG) LATTA WAS THUS GIVEN FREE RANGE OF STARFLEET, AND HE, IN TURN, REQUESTED ASSIGNMENT TO HAWKEYE ISLAND.

PERSONAL TRAITS

    LATTA IS A TYPICAL MARTIAN IN MANY RESPECTS. AT 6’2" TALL AND ONLY WEIGHING 164 LBS, BEAN POLE IS AN APT DESCRIPTION OF HIS BUILD. HIS EYES ARE THE INCREDIBLY RARE TRUE "ICE BLUE" COLOR, WHICH ARE DESCRIBED AS COMPLETELY LIFELESS, NO MATTER WHAT THE FACIAL EXPRESSION. HIS CONFIDENT ATTITUDE IS SIMILAR TO THAT OF CERTAIN MEMBERS OF THE FELINE FAMILY, HOWEVER, AND HE SHOULD NEVER BE UNDERESTIMATED UNDER ANY CONDITIONS. IF A SITUATION DOES TURN HOSTILE, LATTA WILL SOONER WALK AWAY THAN FIGHT, AND HE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO DISAPPEAR IN PLAIN SIGHT OF A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE.  IF HE HAPPENS TO CHOOSE TO FIGHT, HOWEVER, WOE TO THE ATTACKER. THAT BEAN POLE QUICKLY BECOMES A RAPIER, READY TO KILL WITHOUT HESITATION. EVEN THOUGH HIS PRIMARY GOAL IS ENDING THE OPPONENTS WILL TO FIGHT.

PSYCHOLOGIST'S WARNING TO COMMANDING OFFICER  (FILED 2309)

    HIS PREVIOUS COMMANDING OFFICER REFERRED HIM TO ME FOLLOWING A CLASSIFIED INCIDENT AFTER SEVERAL COUNSELING SESSIONS WITH HIM, I HAVE DETERMINED THAT LT (JG) LATTA SUFFERS FROM FLASHBACKS AND MILD CHRONIC DEPRESSION, WHICH  HE TENDS TO COPE WITH IN A FATALISTIC, ALMOST SUICIDAL MANNER.  OTHER THAN THAT, HE IS A COMPETENT, CAPABLE PILOT, AND AN OUTSTANDING OFFICER. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT DIRECTLY CONFRONTING HIM ABOUT HIS PAST, AS IT MAY CAUSE A RELAPSE, OR A WORSENING OF HIS SYMPTOMS.
