B. Background Summary

Justin Farralon is an extremely talented individual when it comes to languages.
he is a polyglot- he has the ability to pick up and assimilate languages simply
by hearing them, given enough time.  Most of the time, he picks up a language
in much the same way a child first learns it- through assimilation and 
immersion.  This makes him able to commmunicate with speakers of other languages
in a most basic fashion quickly- the more he hears of the other language, the
quicker he can communicate.  Later, the formalized syntax and mechanics of the
language follow, once he is able to figure out into what language family the
new language fits.  As such, under the right situations, Farralon can become
"passable" in a new language almost immediately, and become "fluent" within a 
few days of intensive work.

Justin would be what they call a "compound multilinguist," meaning he is able to
see and hear phrases in different languages as being of the same concept.  This
means, instead of thinking in his mind that "chien" means "dog" in French, he is
able to see them as equal concepts.  This means he does not need to equate or
"think" in his native language in order to gain proficiency in a language.

Justin also has a considerable background in the physical sciences- most especially
biology and xenobiology, as they often have a profound affect on language and how
it is delivered.  He is competent enough to have passed his Qualification Exams
for a Science officer as well as for a Communications Officer.  Given all this,
it is no wonder that Justin is a gifted cryptologist, or "code breaker."

Yet, for all of Justin's intelligence and talent in the realm of lingusitics,
he is a complete klutz- he has absolutely no physical grace or athleticism, to
the point that he is often a danger to himself just walking from one room to
the next.  It would not be out-of-character for Justin to turn and walk into 
a doorframe, causing him to drop the armful of tablets he had been carrying all
over the floor, and then sliping and falling as he tried to re-gather his load,
causing them to spill all over the floor again.  Unfortunately, this lack of
grace has cost him from time to time: he tripped and spilled hot coffee all over
Captain Marquez of the GALILEO during his training mission, and nearly caused
an inadvertent phaser coolant leak when he accidentally dropped a stack of 
tablets on the wrong button in main engineering.

It is important to note that Justin does not do these things on purpose.  
However, by now, given his track record, he now believes that something WILL
go wrong- he expects to trip over something, walk into something, drop something
on the wrong thing, etc.- and that this belief may be a self-fulfilling prophesy
of sorts.  If he could go a few days without disaster striking, or if he could
find a decent counselor to clear him of this psychosematic reaction, he might
end up with an outstanding career.

On top of all this, he has recently been moved out of necessity to Engineering,
assuming the duties of Chief Engineer upon Chief McMasters' recall to Starbase 12.
Now, not only will he be relying on others to cove rhim when he falls, but to
help support him professionally as well as he adapts to a new job.

None at this time.

V. Skills Profile

Outstanding linguist, competent to good scientist.  Can't fire a phaser or
fight hand-to-hand to save his skin- more likely to hurt himself than others
in a combat situation.

"Oddly enough, Justin becomes MORE stable physically when he drinks- probably 
because he doesn't think about what might happen as much.  However, a round of 
darts is STILL a dangerous proposition..."

-- Ensign Fred Wilco
   Friend and crewmate on USS JANSSEN (speaking from personal experience)

VI. Recent Fitness Reports

Justin Farralon is in excellent health, and will continue to long as
no one hands him a phaser.

-- Dr. Sekar
	Staff Attending, Starfleet Academy

VII. Psychological Profile

Justin's physical incompetence nowadays is more a function of psychosematics
than anything else.  If he could learn to stop anticipating disaster, then
disaster won't necessarily follow.

-- LCDR Bradley Baines
	Staff Psychologist, Starbase 11

VIII. Current Recreational Interests

Nothing physical, for certain, though he has been to try his hand at darts 
from time to time, with predictable results.  Otherwise, reading and relaxing
in a controlled setting are his off-duty pursuits.
