This character will serve as the nominal "fleet commander" of ORIGINS. In the TOS era- which seemed only to be underscored by ST2009- the flag command structure was vague and often contradictory; what was clear was that Enterprise- and her sister ships, it can be assumed- got her orders from various starbases, depending on where she was exploring. This character commands one such base.

Background Summary --------------------- Joseph Carstairs is, in many ways, a typical "career" 'Fleeter. He comes from a long-standing Starfleet family: many of his ancestors served in Starfleet's infancy, and his children have continued in the "family tradition." Joe is married, his wife living in New York City on Earth. His personality is usually one of patience and cool reasoning. He prefers to have ample proof and/or support before taking action, especially any actions which might result in deaths or damage to the Federation's reputation and security. He has never been much of a risk-taker, only doing so if there is no other clear choice of action. However, that said, he is extremely supportive of those under his command; he will support them completely, so long as their conduct and, more importantly, their results, warrant it. In general, in the growing political conflict in the Federation Council between the Military minds (who push for a larger, more military Starfleet) and the Exploration supporters (who support a more diplomatic and scientific central role for Starfleet), Joe supports the Explorers. Most of the time; the soldier in him cannot help but see the potential danger of expanding their frontiers. ========================================================================== III. Skills Profile ================== Reasonable marksman; excellent diplomat. Politically aware, and increasingly adept in this arena. ========================================================================== IV. Current Recreational Interests ================================== Likes to play handball and basketball when he has time- makes for a reasonable shooting guard, since much of what he does is practice his jump-shot. ==========================================================================
