B. Background Summary

Joshua McKnight comes across as one of the most unassuming, likable 
fellows you will ever meet.  He's bright, genuine, energetic, upbeat and 
always ready to share a drink.  For all that, he's one of the more 
experienced Special Forces officers in the fleet.  His specialties 
include security and engineering but he also possesses competent piloting
and communications skills.  A jack of all trades, he remains unsually 
humble and is always looking for ways to help his fellow crewmen.  He's 
difficult to make angry and prefers not to hold grudges, though he isn't
above retributional pranks as his Academy records can testify.  

Josh's chief vice is his penchant for whiskey.  In this, however, he is 
careful enough to get drunk in a protected environment and usually saves 
the experience for special occassions.  In any case, being Irish, it is 
very hard to drink him under the table: an ability that has saved him and 
his team on more than one occassion.  

Josh currently has no romantic or familial attachments.  He keeps only in
loose contact with his sister back on Earth.  This reluctance to form any
intimate relationships grew quickly after losing several friends early 
in his Special Forces tour.  So, while he rarely lacks for female
admirers, he stopped dating long ago when it was literally beaten into 
him just how dangerous his job could be.  Ironically, he transfered to 
normal fleet duty to have a "saner" life.

VI. Recent Fitness Reports


Multiple healed fractures on record, no physical abnormalities.  Some 
interal abdominal scaring from trauma related to his service bears 
monitoring.  Advised the patient to report any unusual constitutional 
discomfort.  Fitness test scores are excellent.  Cleared for duty.

VII. Psychological Profile

Commander McKnight continues to present himself as a well adjusted 
individual, though he reports he still has not had a serious relationship
with someone of the opposite sex since his first year in the fleet.  
While he claims he "doesn't want make a widow out of anyone," seven years
without intimacy is most unusual for some of his age and good health.  I
suspect other psychological factors to be at work which our interview did
not cover and which the classified nature of his service history might 
prevent him from discussing.  Given he is transferring to fleet duty to 
reduce his risk level (his words), this aspect of his personality may 
bear scrutiny if he does not start taking an active interest in intimate 
relationships.  He continues to be ambitious in his career goals and is 
evidently an achiever.  At this time, I do see an impediments to his 
functioning as an officer.

IX. NRPG Notes

Josh had quite the convoluted developmental history.  First he was going 
to be this really nice guy from Denver, Colorado for Serah Riley to date.
Then when I retired Serah, he became this Irish guy with a penchant for 
whiskey.  Mind you, at one point, I toyed with making him Jessica McKnight
with emerald green and eyes, brilliant red hair and a flirty disposition 
who liked whiskey to boot.  Steve Apple suggested I stick with playing a 
guy this time round, so there you are.  Lots of what might have beens. 
He is also the first seriously non-Christian character I've played so
he is going to do some naughty stuff I don't condone (just for the
