Personality & Traits

General Overview Like most Xindi-Insectoid, Konebak Fears very little and when he is scared he doesn’t show it at all. This tends to work in his favour for whenever something arises he is calm and can think things through without losing his head. There have been times where Konebak has done some fairly stupid things because he is always willing to show of his courage. When he first joined starfleet academy he tried to show off in a holodeck training simulation by not defending himself and got hurt for doing so.

He is loyal to a fault no matter what he is asked he will do his captain,his ship and his crew will always come first. If he has to put his life on the line for others he will without question. He cannot be bribed or coerced he will do whatever it takes to be the best representative of the Federation he can be.

He does suffer from being occasionally over aggressive like those of his race he takes high and loud voices as a sign of disrespect and aggression and can cause anger in him. He has had reported issues in the academy from these prior incidents he continues to try and control himself. Konebak has lost out on opportunities due to his anger but it has not affected his work ethic and has been seen as one of the greatest engineers the academy has ever seen.

Konebak still feels regret for his ancestors mistakes in firing the Xindi weapon at earth over a century ago. This can cause him to occasionally feel awkward around humans he has yet gotten to know as he feels they may judge him on his people's past actions. He continues to work as hard as he can to prove that humans have nothing to worry about from him and he will never betray the Federation.

Personal History Konebak was born in a hatchery on a Xindi-Insectoid ship where he was raised and taught the working of the ships. Learning the workings on the ship from a young age allowed him to become a very good engineer and a very important one for the Xindi. He was expected to keep both the ship and the hatchery on the ship running at all times. Always looking for a way to keep things running at a better efficiency has helped him in his career but has caused the occasional injury.

Being willing to always put everything on the line to make things better and ran even better has given him the reputation of being great but also very reckless. This drew people to him and gave him different opportunities. At what his people would call the age of seven he was made an offer to join Starfleet Academy he accepted it right away. After a year he took a ship from the Xindi colony world he was living on to Starfleet Academy.

Upon his arrival at the academy there were many races but few Xindi walking around, Konebak felt alone to a degree but decided that he will have to accept it if he was going to continue with his career. Walking into his orientation things seemed to be going well there were occasional odd looks being sent his way, he could tell he was sticking out in the crowd but he was proud to be in the Academy.

In the many years he was there Konebak would make friends in the academy and learn all he could about the workings of the starfleet vessels that he would one day be working on. At time he would still get the odd look directed at him and he always felt it was because of the attack on earth his people did two centuries ago. Konebak was known as an excellent engineer his entire time at the academy he did have the occasional blemish on his record from outburst of aggression when someone yells or uses a high tone towards him, he continues even now to try and control his outburst.

After graduating Konebak was requested for station working the Delta Quardant. He would work for six years under direction from the stations chief engineer. He would given awards and be accommodated for his work. Throughout those years there would be problems that would rise and he would be the one they would depend on. He would later be recommended for the titan class ship the USS Columbus. Accepting the the recommendation he could not wait his new positions and what would be waiting for him.
