Physical Description Ian keeps his dark brown hair more unkempt than most officers and allows it to fall free most of the time. He has a habit of running his hand through it. The young man’s cheek bones and squared jaw line, as well as his athletic build, add to his masculine appearance. He has a lean, muscular physique; not scrawny, but not muscle-bound like a bodybuilder. His occasional five-o-clock shadow coupled with his dark hair and eyebrows gives him a ‘bad’ look. Or so he’s been told.

Ian hits the gym regularly; push ups, sit ups, pull ups, squats, burpees, body planks, and death jumps are common exercises for him. As a result, he does not have a bulky body like other body builders. He takes care that his lean muscles grow fast and in proportion to his somatotype.

Personal History Ian was born in the city of Rixx on Betazed to Liam and Sophia Beckett. Liam was two years into his teaching position at the University of Betazed. Ian was the middle born of his brother and sister but broke the stereotype of middle children. Even though he was still somewhat neglected by his parents, Ian was not the embittered wallflower. And in a way, he actually benefited from it in the long run. He became more independent, started thinking outside the box, felt less pressure to conform, and showed more empathy. He became a social person and a great team player.

After high school, Ian applied to Starfleet Academy and was accepted. After four years of hard work in the Operations classes, he graduated and was assigned to the USS Chimera. The newly minted Ensign had to get a few hops to arrive at the Chimera’s location, but it was worth it. The next four years, he worked his way from Transporter Operator to an Operations Officer. He had just been newly promoted to Lieutenant JG when their ship had finally encountered their enemy. Then he found what really happened. Now, he had been brought over to the Black Hawk and was serving there as Chief Transporter Operator. Ian didn’t expect to make too many friends there considering the situation.

Since his re-assignment, Ian has had a chance to spend some time with different people. One of them is in Flight, one Kelly Khan. The two became acquaintances and then fast friends in the Rec Room of the Akira class Black Hawk when things were being rationed. By the end of the evening, they had clinked glasses to healing the trust one person at a time and building friendships.

After that, Ian had settled on the decision to attempt friendship with the crew. It was hard at first, and the second and third time he'd tried. It wasn't until after the disaster of the Akira class ship and subsequent crew rotation that he'd become friends with several of the other young officers. The new assignees to the new Black Hawk, that is. They didn't know about his previous assignment right away. And by the time they had gotten to know the young man, they didn't seem to care. He would hang out with this new group of guys on a regular basis and enjoy all that this new ship had to offer.

"This is the school in which we learn...time is the fire in which we burn." Life and time had certainly been teaching and burning a lot lately. There had been lots of changes happen; people coming and going and yet another ship. And his job. Ian had been laterally transferred from Operations to Engineering when a new face had taken his old job of Chief Transporter Operator. The young man, who'd been through all kinds of hell since the Consortium, wasn't sure if it was a promotion, a place to just stash him, or what. But here he was in a new department on a new ship of the same name. Time to make the best of it.
