B. Background Summary:

Sam is your typical run-of-the-mill officer, who is dependable, 
punctual and competent.  However, he possesses neither exceptional
skill nor a real drive to succeed.  In short, he does his job
in a competent though not exceptional manner, and seems quite
satisfied with that.

If Sam does indeed possess a gift, it would be in the academic side
of security- he can look at all the data on a situation, and, given
enough time, will come up with a solid plan that keeps loss of life
to a minimum.  However, when it comes time to implement said plan,
he is NOT naturally-gifted at this, and is not good at improvisation.

He is an adequate leader, neither inspiring unusual loyalty nor
driving people within his department to transfer.

This general malaise in his attiude shited somewhat after his assignments
on the BURKE and RAMSES after learning that sometimes the difference
between winning and losing- or, life and death, as the case may
be- can be found in the effort.  Space is dangerous, and only the
best efforts give one the best chance at surviving.  He has accepted
this, and is a much-improved officer because of it.

He, for the first time, tasted command in his last days aboard
the RAMSES, taking command when Captain Carmen Hasselbeck was killed
in the Battle of Tybiiran.  For the first time, Sam felt as though
made difference; the crew was defeated and down, and he gave them the
hope for victory.  This more than anything signalled his turn-around 
in attitude.  His tour as XO of the MARC ANTONY has been excellent,
resulting in a third solid pip on his collar and moving one
assignment away from command of his own.  There have even been rumors
that he was assigned to DS13 with the idea that he would eventually
replace Commander S'Tveck as station Commandant.  However, this would 
not be the case: he would instead go back to Advanced Tactical School
at Star Fleet Academy and eventually replace Corwyn O'Dwyer as CO of
