Personal History Matthew Russell was born in the Canadian Rockies of Earth in the year 2373 and had a rocky childhood as his parents did nothing but fight. Matthew always looked past the grievances and pain to find the positive in life. He moved away with his mother and maintained a distance with his father as he was more the aggressor in the relationship of the family.

Matthew in the teenage years started to wonder if there was more to Earth so he entered Starfleet Academy as soon as he could with the ambition to command one day and explore the galaxy. He entered into many classes to learn what he could but as he took a turn into the more of the engineering side of the academy so he learned what he could on the topic of the basics especially with starships. He became more fascinated in the classes and made his instructors proud from his assignments and the making of various models of the starship engines.

Service Record Matthew graduated the academy earlier than most in 2391 and made the applications to serve aboard a starship that he can help in the engineering department. He got his chance when the roll call for engineers were needed on the USS Sentinel, the Intrepid class starship that was in the sector at the time…
