B. Background Summary

Richard Lewis grew up with a passion for the sciences and mathematics, which 
eventually led him into engineering.  Growing up in an academic family, he 
always felt the push to pursue the theoretical side of his field, but felt a 
personal call to work hands-on with the starship systems that he studied.  
After finishing his doctorate at Harvard he decided to join Starfleet, despite 
his parent's objections.

He met his late wife during his first tour, though she was killed in an accident 
shortly after the birth of their son (who was living with Harper's parents at 
the time).  He was crushed by the death of his wife but rededicated himself to 
his career.  He has spent most of his son's life in posts that don't allow 
children, but whenever he has had the opportunity he has brought his son with him.

He is a gifted engineer, which is his true passion.  However, it became clear to 
those around him that the combination of his easy manner with his analytical 
mind lent itself well to command, and he was tapped as a first officer in 
addition to his engineering responsibilities.  He loves the opportunity to be 
"out there" and work with ships in the field, but also feels the pressure of 
returning to Earth and working more closely with Starfleet Engineering, combined 
with the chance to spend more time with his aging parents.  His son has followed 
his father and is currently a cadet at the Academy, despite Richard's quiet 
protests out of fear of something happening to his son.

He gets along well with those he works with and has an easy-going manner.  He is 
slow to anger but has a terrible temper when pushed.

V. Skills Profile

Lewis is a brilliant engineer.  He combines a love of the theory and 
practice, and has been intimately involved in some of the latest developments 
in Starfleet Engineering's ship design and production. Overseeing the docks 
at Starbase Alpha is a real capstone for his career to date.  He has 
consistently demonstrated himself an excellent leader, motivating those around 
him and encouraging the development of the officers and enlisted who served 
with him in engineering departments.  His one command, of the CURIE, proved 
that he could oversee a starship, though the more informal style that works in 
an engineering department was perceived by some as weakness or a lack of 
formal discipline in a Captain.  He learned from the experience, but is not 
one to change his style. 

VI. Recent Fitness Reports

Captain Richard Lewis is in good physical condition.  He could do with more formal 
exercise and a better diet, but he is in good health.

VII. Psychological Profile

CAPT Lewis is well fit for duty.  He is well liked and relates well to his 
subordinates, but continues to be limited in his close personal friends.  His 
relationship with his son causes him some stress as he continues to fear for the 
Cadet's safety in Starfleet, likely due to the death of his wife in service.

VIII. Current Recreational Interests 

Lewis' recreation is really an extension of his work.  He is always tinkering with 
something, and his current hobby is repairing and building antique timepieces.
