Childhood & Early Life
Due to his parent's lives as merchants, although the family home was on Mars, he spent large portions of his early life travelling with his parents aboard their freighter the Black Thistle, which Alec's father Roy had taken over from his father Ramsey. He was involved by his parents in negotiations and trading deals from a young age and quickly became a competent engineer and particularly proficient with computer systems. However, as his father often told his associates, his son continually displayed an inability to barter, a naivity in trading, and a lack of interest in a good deal. This disappointment led to several arguments as Alec entered his teenage years. It was after one of these, when Alec was briefly staying with his father's friend Narel on Unroth III, that the Black Thistle went missing close to the Klingon-Cardassian border in 2373 and was presumed destroyed. Alec continued to live with Narel and his family thereafter. Away from the constraints of a merchant's life his interest in science blossomed. In 2375 at Narel's encouragement Alec applied to Starfleet Academy at the age of 17. His application was unsuccessful on this attempt, but he was accepted the following year.
Characterised by it's frequent highs and lows, the Academy was a turbulent time of Alexander's life. He was widely regarded to be near the top of his class by almost all of his instructors, but continually failed to deliver in assessments. He was encouraged by several of his superiors, that although he was widely regarded as an able and widely liked cadet, perhaps Starfleet was not for him, and he would do better pursuing a career in research. His adoptive father convinced him to remain at the Academy and Alec graduated in 2379. One of his instructors found his first placement for him at the Daystrom Institute, and although this was not a conventional posting for a Starfleet officer, a two year sabbatical placement was approved.
