Personal History Born in 2397 in San Francisco, California, Tobias Garfield Flenderson was shown to be academically sound and occasionally brilliant but quiet and withdrawn throughout his early life. Coasting through most of his time in high school, he applied and was granted conditional acceptance to Union Point, Class of 2418. Arriving in the summer of 2414 for 'Plebe Summer', Toby completed the training successfully but didn't stand out amongst his peers for the potential for leadership, which concerned his instructors who considered asking him to resign but didn't consider it.

Throughout his Fourth Class (Freshman) year at Union Point, Toby proved to be something of a walking disaster, inadvertently causing issues everywhere he went, from accidentally blowing up an Engineering lab with a plasma explosion to crashing a small training shuttle during his second semester. This caused the Commandant, Admiral Channing to restrict Toby from all operational specialties deemed high risk, which caused Toby to be transferred to a dark and rarely used program at the Academy- Personnel Management and Law. This triggered a damaging effect on Toby's confidence, especially as the news made its way back to his father, who was an unrelenting taskmaster that expected his son to follow in his footsteps. After a long and protracted fight, Tobias lost touch with his father until after graduation in June of 2418. After a short period of additional training in Criminal Law, Toby was assigned to the Legal Services Office aboard the ECV San Dimas, a Leviathan Class vessel where he received average marks for his lack of initiative and reputation as a "wet blanket". After a particularly disastrous encounter 2420 where his advice caused the ship to mistakenly fire upon a merchant vessel, he was hurriedly reassigned to Union Mining Station 42 as the resident personnel officer at the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.
