Personality & Traits

General Overview Charlie is a friendly but deeply shy young man who suffers from nerves quite badly and has a tendency to be nervously verbose and misspeak when under pressure. He tends to avoid social situations and large crowds, preferring the quiet sanctity of his quarters. As an officer, he is quiet but effective in his role, although in leadership situations he struggles to take charge and effectively convey his thoughts and ideas.

Charlie is a romantic, often spending many hours recording letters to his long-term, long-distance boyfriend. While the young man is painfully shy, he can eventually gain confidence around people that he has come to know and trust and will speak openly and freely with them, without much of the verbal hitches and diarrhea that plagues many of his conversations with strangers. In addition, he is very loyal and if he considers a person to be his friend, they will be a friend for life.

Personal History/Background Information Charles McCullen was born into Starfleet. His parents serve, his grandparents served, his great grandparents were among the first to serve.

Born aboard the USS New London during an exploratory mission, the youngest of two brothers and three sisters. He was raised on the New London until her destruction at the hands of the Dominion in 2375. Then nine years old, Charlie has vivid memories of the battle and the desperate fight to escape capture. He remembers vividly the disablement, boarding and subsequent destruction of the New London. During the firefight to escape the ship he was given a phaser by the Chief Engineer and told to 'Kill any Cardie bastard that comes around that corner.' That has left an indelible mark on the young man.

Aboard his new home, the USS Martin, he received counselling to combat the nightmares and PTSD. For the most part, the counselling was successful and he quickly rebounded. By the age of twelve, he was annoying his captain (who was also his mother,) by taking turns, supervised of course, at helm during bravo shirt. By the age of fifteen, he was a cadet-ensign serving part time on alpha shift.

Ensign McCullen graduated from Starfleet academy after only two years, having completed much of the coursework and testing aboard ship. At the academy he was known as a reliable, hard-working student who mostly kept to himself. His instructors saw potential, but his shyness and tendency to prattle were drawbacks that, they felt, would exclude him from a command position.

At age 18, he was assigned to the USS Xavier, a Miranda class cruiser. He served there for a few years, making a mark as an excellent helmsman and a surprisingly good officer, before moving to the USS Grumman, where he served with distinction, earning the trust of his fellow officer and they, in turn, earning his friendship. In 2389, McCullen was promoted to Junior Lieutenant and assigned as the Chief Flight Control Officer of the USS Scorpio. Later that year, at the discretion of the departing commanding officer of the ship, he was promoted to full lieutenant after only a few months at junior lieutenant.
