|Bravo Fleet Link:|
Tall and lanky, with a long face that makes him look skinnier. His brown hair is kept at a medium length, and he rarely attempts to tame it from its tendency to curl. His neatly trimmed full beard and moustache is darker, though beginning to show signs of early greying. His brow tends to find itself in a natural furrowed resting state, giving him a slightly puzzled look.
|Confident and headstrong, with a knack for putting together unconventional solutions.|
|Lacks planning and often assumes that he can make it up as he goes along, resulting in him often agreeing to things that turn out to be more than he bargained for.|
|Coming from a family steeped in culture, Vincent's path into engineering was an unusual one that left a divide between him and his parents. He hopes to prove to them that it was a worthwhile choice.|
|Vincent has a passion for cooking, particularly baking, describing it as "the science where you can fudge things a bit". This may go some way to explaining why the results aren't always successes. He's also a sometimes player of the Bajoran pipes, though only ever for himself or a few close friends.|
|Federation Standard English, Broken Bajoran|
Technically born on Merak II in 2367, Vincent Turner was just two years old when his mother accepted a diplomatic posting to Bajor following the end of Cardassian occupation there. His sister, Wilhelmina, was born not long after, and both children spent much of their formative years on that world, barring a brief stay on Andoria during the Dominion War.
Vincent's parents did their best to expose him to culture and the arts, asserting that these were what made a civilisation great, not merely its technology. He attended a local Bajoran school and was enrolled in several different extra-curricular activities, of which only his lessons to play the Bajoran pipes really stuck. What Vincent really took away from his immersion in Bajoran culture, though, was the reconstruction efforts of the people following Cardassian occupation. Despite his parents' wishes, he soon found himself focusing on mechanics and engineering, and left for Starfleet Academy when he turned 18.
His time at the Academy was uneventful, though he was noted to be particularly adept with energy systems. Following Vincent's graduation, he was assigned to Starbase 12 as part of the tail end of the Sovereign class refit program. In this role, he was part of the team of engineers assessing the first scheduled refit of the Sovereign class of ships after their 2379 upgrade.
In 2391, he was transferred to the Nebula-class USS Stoddart, again as an engineering officer. During the tour, an accident during an experiment on a radiolytic isotope set part of the ship out of phase with the rest. Vincent was critical in restoring the ship to functionality, earning himself a commendation in the process.
Wanting to leave applied science alone for a while, Vincent applied for a transfer to the USS Cavalry, a ship officially bound to patrol the neutral zone and offer assistance to the Federation (and, likely, Romulan) outposts in the area.
