B. Background Summary

Gabe Coleman was born to a single mother in one of the remaining slums in 
Baltimore, Maryland.  After the death of his younger sister Elizabeth when 
Gabe was 7, his mother sought to escape the slum life in hopes of providing 
a better existence for her children.  They moved frequently and he was often 
in and out of school.  At 16 he ran away from home, lied about his age, and 
joined the police force in Norfolk, Virginia.  He had always been drawn to 
law enforcement, as some of his earliest role models as the "good guys" were 
police officers.  Several mentors on the force took him in, and over his nine 
years there he completed a high school equivalency and then earned a College 
degree through distance and night work.  Upon completing a college degree, 
Gabe felt pulled to Star Fleet and applied to the Advanced Officer Training 

While he is incredibly savvy and very intelligent, he is at times painfully 
aware of his lack of formal education, and this can make him uncharacteristically 
insecure or very gruff.  He has a keen understanding of people from his time 
growing up largely on the street and then years as a police officer, and values 
loyalty above almost all else.  Gabe's attitude is one of doing what he has to 
to "get the job done" which can at times make for conflict with his superiors 
(though he respects authority) or regulations.  He is a very direct individual, 
which some people take to be rudeness.

Both in his time as a police officer and now in Starfleet, Gabe is known as an 
officer who understands appropriate use of force but never backs down from a 
fight.  He is very good at hand to hand combat and works to keep himself "sharp."  
He prides himself on staying fit and expects the same from others in security.  
Gabe rarely gets angry and works hard to keep his emotions in check.

Since joining Starfleet he has expanded his skills beyond that of law 
enforcement, proving to be a quick study in other aspects of life on a starship. 
While he is not certified, he has developed a knack for work at the helm and 
enjoys the chance to pilot shuttles and small vessels from time to time.  He 
was commissioned as a Lieutenant, junior grade, for his past experience, and 
quickly distinguished himself as a security officer.  During his time on the 
GALILEO, he became acting Chief of Security during a close engagement with 
several pirates while investigating a smuggling outpost and proved his ability 
to think on his feet and lead others.  During his time on the NEWTON, his 
tactical decisions in deploying security forces around the ship to repel 
boarders earned him a medal of merit and one of them is now being considered for 
inclusion in the Star Fleet tactical field manual.

V. Skills Profile

Gabe is excellent at hand-to-hand combat and a good, though not excellent, 
marksman.  His ability to read people and quickly analyze a situation are 
particularly useful in a combat situation.  He has some skill at the helm, 
though this is largely self-taught and tutored by officers during his time 
in Starfleet.

Gabe Coleman is in excellent physical condition.  He is strong and has no 
known health conditions.  He has no known diseases or other health concerns.

-- Dr. Jones
	Staff Attending, Starfleet Academy

VII. Psychological Profile

While he is slow to anger, this officer does have a temper that has gotten 
him into trouble in the past.  He is most sensitive about his education and 
can react poorly when he feels that others look down upon him or judge him 
in any way based on his educational experience.  He is slow to forgive when 
he feels he has been wronged, in some cases perhaps holding a grudge a bit 
too far.

He has an excellent understanding of other people and is easy to relate too.  
He can be a bit blunt at times, but always in the spirit of being honest, 
never out of a desire to be cruel or demeaning.  Overall, he is well balanced 
and fair-minded in his thinking, and compassionate though he rarely displays 
it openly.

-- LCDR Bradley Baines
	Staff Psychologist, Starbase 11

VIII. Current Recreational Interests

Gabe has a passion for education, in part because of a self-perceived lack, 
but mainly just because he loves learning.  He enjoys languages, having 
learned some in his work as a police officer, and tries to study language 
when he can.  He enjoys being outdoors, but is really a city man, and would 
prefer jogging around an urban area than a hike or walk in the country.
