Personality & Traits

General Overview Michael James does his job and he does it well. He is a tough guy when it comes to Starfleet Security, its protocols, regulations, and such. In other words, he’s by the book when it comes to his job. If the situation calls for it, Michael is not afraid to bring the hammer down. But when it comes time for after shift stuff, Michael really lets loose. He’s a bit of a wild guy off duty. MJ thrives in the lounge and club scene, mostly because of his pre-fleet work at a tattoo shop and a local nightclub. Of course, prior to that, he was still the wild child that his parents had trouble reigning in. He is still a big flirter and he doesn’t mind checking out the women or getting caught doing it. Michael also enjoys a good verbal repartee.

Michael Donovan’s Portfolio sample

Personal History Art was one of Michael’s best subjects in high school, right after wrestling and phys ed. During his senior year, he took some college level art classes because he had taken all he could at the high school level. He graduated high school and began an apprenticeship at a tattoo shop, putting his art skills to use. His parents were a little leery at first, but it wasn’t as bad as they thought it was going to be. Michael worked there for three years, from the age of 18 to 21 years old, and during that time began a workout regimen. Basically, it’s circuit training. He says that if you do one exercise after another without breaking, you bump your metabolic rate up to such a place that you create what’s called a ‘furnace effect’—your metabolism is firing at such a high rate that you can go to sleep and you’ll burn calories through the night. That’s Michael’s ideal place to be. In addition to that, he keeps a very low-sodium diet and understands that 80% of the process happens in the kitchen. He still keeps up with his circuit training.

On his 21st birthday, his friends took him out clubbing. Michael was thoroughly enjoying his birthday celebration until he accidentally bumped into a guy who’d had too much to drink. MJ apologized and tried to keep things civil. However the guy wanted to fight. The situation escalated and Michael held his own without destroying the club. He was even able to draw the guy to the front door so that security would have easier time expelling him. Two months later, the owner of the nightclub reached out to Michael and offered him a job with his ‘internal security department.’ He would be working the floors inside the club and have constant contact with his superiors, helping to make this particular nightclub, The Inferno, one of the safer ones…despite its name. Michael worked there for two years (23 years old).

Soon, he began making plans to join Starfleet. MJ liked the nightlife, but he had started to think that there was more to everything than nightclub security. He wanted to get out of San Francisco, off of Earth even, and find out what more there was. Nightclub security paid pretty good, but not enough to live on when you plan to see what’s out there. In talking with his dad, he suggested Starfleet. Michael said he’d give it a try, but he didn’t think he’d pass the entrance exam. To his surprise, Michael passed the exams and received an acceptance letter to Starfleet Academy, which included a report-no-later-than date.

Four years later, at the age of 27, Michael graduated at the rank of Ensign with a major in Security and Tactical. He was excited at his first set of orders…the USS Triumphant, a new ship of the line. Michael’s parents were excited for him as well. Their son was almost 30 years old and had finally found something to do as a career. Michael caught the first hop en route to the Triumphant as one of the security officers.
