Personal History ::Childhood::
Grek was born on the USS Wasp-A, where his father was the Chief Operations Officer and his mother was a Science Officer. He was the second born of four children. He lived on the Wasp until his parents decided, after his mother became pregnant with their fourth, that it was time to settle down back on Tellar Prime to raise their family. Grek was 5.

When resettled on Tellar Prime, the children attended a school, his father started working in the shipyards, and his mother at a research lab.

::Starfleet Academy::

At the time he reached 18, he decided to go into Starfleet. At first, he didn’t know what field he wanted to go into, so he started with just the general education courses. Upon taking the basic engineering classes that are required by the Academy, he found that he really liked it. So his advisors adjusted his schedule to match that career path. He graduated from the Academy at the rank of Ensign.

Upon graduation, he went to Starfleet Engineering Academy, to work towards his M.Eng.

Upon graduating the academy, Grek was assigned to the USS Nightingale-A, an Olympic class starship. He was posted as an engineer. The Nightingale, being a medical relief ship, was the first to respond. Grek connected with a young girl while helping on the planet. He was working with the CEO in EV suits setting up triage centers. He was with her when she died.

Once aboard the Iwo Jima, Grek accepted the position of Assistant Chief Engineer, and the promotion to Lieutenant. The Iwo Jima was an Akira class starship, their assignment was patrolling the border of Breen space. He served there for five years. During that time, they had many encounters with Breen that were trying to smuggle things across the border. There was a lot to do, everything from minor burns to fatal wounds from skirmishes with the Breen.

In 2392 Grek heard that the USS Tsiolkovsky was in need of a Chief Engineer. He talked to his current Chief and she encouraged him to apply for the transfer. He had served long enough as not the Chief of a sickbay. So he put in his transfer request and waited to hear a reply.
