B. Background Summary 
--------------------- 
 
William Patton was born at a Lunar mining facility where his father was 
employed as a miner and his mother was a computer tech.  He saw little of 
his father during his childhood.  His father was always off chasing the next 
job, the next pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Patton, however, had a 
very close relationship with his mother.  She saw to his upbringing and 
education.  As she moved from position to position, Bill learned each new 
computer system his mother was working on.  He used those systems to 
basically self-educate himself. 
 
At the age of ten, he learned that his father had been killed in a bar-room 
fight on Ganymede.  His mother died when Patton was sixteen.  She was aboard 
a shuttle returning to Earth when it was penetrated by a piece of orbital 
debris.  The shuttle was lost with all hands.  Two weeks later, Patton 
presented himself to the local Star Fleet recruiting station; and, 
lying about his age, he enlisted.  He was assigned to Security. 
 
Patton spent the next ten years in the Star Fleet.  Naturally he 
earned the nickname of "Wild Bill".  He found that he enjoyed the 
responsibility and adventure of the Service.  His ability and intelligence 
led to his rapid advancement.  By the time of his resignation, he had 
attained the rank of Chief Petty Officer with mulitple qualification 
certificates.  Many of the operations he participated in during this 
period of Fleet service  are still under secrecy seal.  Details are 
available to those with appropriate clearance through the Star Fleet 
Intelligence Headquarters . 
 
In 2747 Patton met and married his wife, Shania Townsend.  Shania was a 
nurse at Starbase One.  They met while Patton was recovering from  severe 
wounds incurred during one of the many "peace keeping" operations he 
participated in during his service.  For a couple of years Patton had 
been becoming more cynical about the role the Star Fleet was playing in 
"keeping the peace".  He was searching for a way to improve the lot of the 
average Federation citizen, those who lived and died by the actions of an 
authority increasingly out of contact.  The death of his wife in childbirth 
the following year crystallized his resolve.  He resigned from Star Fleet. 
 
Patton took the qualifying exams for the Leonard McCoy Medical 
School and scored in the top ten percent.  He was admitted to the medical 
school at full scholarship and graduated number eight in a class of 
two-hundred. 
 
Patton spent the next several years working through the Federation Red Cross 
and the Federation Centers for Diseae Control, responding to crisis and 
disaster throughout the Federation.  He also had some contact with 
Federation Intelligence during this period.  Another year was spent in 
advanced training on the Klingon homeworld at the Imperial School of 
Medicine. 
 
Patton came to realize that most of the disasters that required his 
attention were not natural, but the result of political and military 
decisions and actions.  He came to believe that the only way to influence 
such events was to be one of those present at the decision-point. 
Unfortunately, that meant a return to Star Fleet. 
 
Thanks to his varied postings over the years, Patton had acquired and 
maintained a vast network of "old-boy" friends that he could call upon when 
needed.  With their assistance -- and a high score on the Star Fleet Academy 
entrance exams -- he was admitted to Star Fleet Academy. 
 
Patton was the oldest member in his Academy class.  Because of his previous 
experiences he completed the course work in three years instead of the usual 
four years.  It was during his final year at the Academy that the data in 
the Academy's computer system was replaced with the world's largest porno 
collection.  The real data was later discovered on the Academy Commandant's 
computer system.  Star Fleet security officers felt that they knew who 
accomplished this deed.  However, they lacked sufficient evidence to bring 
any charges related to the incident.

VI. Recent Fitness Reports 
========================== 
 
Evaluation By Star Fleet Complied At The Time Of CPO Patton's 
Resignation: 
"I have commanded Chief Petty Officer Patton for the past four years.  He 
has shown himself to be an extremely proficient leader, a highly qualified, 
combat-proven individual.  He has constantly pushed himself to, and beyond, 
his limits both in his professional and personal life.  The Fleet accepts 
Chief Petty Officer Patton's resignation with extreme reluctance.  His 
re-enlistment at a future date would be welcomed without prejudice." 
-Captain Thomas Paine, Commanding Officer, USS WOLF 
 
Star Fleet INTEL Summary done at the time of Patton's admission to Star 
Fleet Academy: 
"A review of the available service records and civilian files on William 
Patton has been conducted.  William Patton holds Top Secret-Nova clearance 
from his time of previous service with Fleet.  This clearance is re-newed 
as of this date.  Reasons for re-newal and  activities related to William 
Patton are classified Top Secret-Galactic and are not to be revealed in 
this document.  Suffice it to say that the loyalty of William Patton is 
under no question.  He is cleared for any information, up to his 
security Clearance level." 
-Admiral William Donovan, Star Fleet Intelligence 
===================================================================
======= 
VII. Psychological Profile 
========================== 
 
Personality: 
Patton is very open in social situations.  He has a warm and welcoming 
manner.  He loves teaching and training of his staff and anyone else that he 
can get to stand still long enough.  His only evidence of hesistation occurs 
with those whom he considers too "gung-ho" or too ready to spend the lives 
of their crew for too little gain.  He is even more vocal about those who 
place career advancement above all else.  Despite his service and life 
history, Patton still retains a sense of wonder.  He feels that he has a 
responsiblity to leave things a little better tomorrow than they are today. 
 
He goes quietly about his duties, becoming agitated only with 
obstructions.  Since the death of his wife and child, he had immersed 
himself in his work and the dreams/ideals that she often expressed.  He 
carries a small holo-projected program of her where-ever he is posted.  Even 
now, many years later, Patton will find himself in tears when he talks about 
her and the son who did not survive birth. 
 
He also carries a collection of real-paper books and a small collection of 
antique firearms with him on his postings. 
 
In his medical duties, Patton is very attentive and caring toward his 
patients.  He takes the death of any patient very personally.  He has a warm 
bedside manner that rarely fails to thaw the most reluctant. 
 
Patton has no medical problems.  He is in remarkable physical condition for 
a man his age.  It is the rare food or drink that he will not try at least 
once. This is only one of the influences that remain from his deceased wife. 
 
Patton has been tested by Star Fleet and found to be one of those rare 
individuals who are "esper blind".  Meaning that telepathic/emphatic 
individuals are unable to get any reading/influence from him at all 
 
Psychological Evaluation Complied By Star Fleet Medical: 
"William Patton has one of the most stable psychological profiles I have 
ever come across. He has a strong sense of self and an even stronger sense 
of duty.  Despite the horendous events of his first posting aboard the USS 
HOPE and the combat duties of his Fleet service, Patton has emerged 
without any siginificant psychological scars.  The deaths he witnessed 
served only to increase his sense of duty.  The enemy deaths for which he 
was responsible brought no sense of victory or satisfaction, only of regret 
that such actions were unavoidable.  The death of his wife and child has had 
a great influence of his actions.  Patton has shown a remarkable ability to 
interface with various races and species on an equal and fair level.  He is 
recommended fo promotion and advancement without reservation."
