Personality & Traits

General Overview Jonathon Munster is generally a laid back, rational man. He prefers less pomp and more work and sometimes feel a rigid rank structure can actually get in the way of proper function of a ship. He is easy-going, but intensely focused during any crisis situation. He's not prone to long deliberations during a crisis, but values input from his crew, and on smaller matters will allow his crew to make the decisions. The only time he hesitates is if he feels a decision will cost a crew member their life, and is likely to consider an option that will cost him his own life instead.

He leans heavily on his first officer, Yoiko Hax, whom he has grown to consider a close friend.

Creative

Weaknesses:
Hesitates if a decision means a crewmember will die
Puts himself in danger before others
Hates 'burdensome' authority
Blames himself for death of a friend
Ambitions Jonathon currently hopes to perfect the new warp core designs for the next Starships and mentor his crew into command roles on those ships.
Hobbies & Interests Jonathon loves to go to places he has never been. If a planet is habitable he is likely to be camping somewhere on it, trekking through its caves, getting lost in it's cities, or enjoying time in a local haunt. He also enjoys working on the science labs when he has a chance, both on the long range sensors and working with advanced physical theory.

Personal History Jonathon was born in 2225 to Richard and Evelyn Munster. Richard was involved with the early days of Starfleet and Jonathon took after his father greatly when it came to the urge to explore. While growing up, he and his sister would pretend to be sailing the stars, or play Feds and Roms.

At 17 he was accepted into Starfleet Academy where he majored in Advanced Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics. Upon graduation he spent some time in the San Francisco Fleet Yards, using his physics knowledge to assist the Engineers there with their projects.

In 2247 he was assigned to the USS Hood under Captain Michaela Harrari. He served there as a science officer until 2252 when he was promoted to Lt. Commander and assigned to the USS Constellation under Matt Decker. In 2257 he transferred back to Earth to attend Starfleet Command School at the request of Starfleet. Upon graduation in 2259 he was posted to Outpost 17 in the Hideki Sector as Project Lead for the next generation Warp Core.

In 2261 he as promoted to Captain and given command of the USS Vesuvius, a Constitution-class starship, albeit one being used as a technological test-bed for the warp core being designed at Outpost 17. The ship operated rarely in deep space, and usually with a skeleton crew. In 2266, the end of her first 5 year 'tour' was marred by a freak reaction from the prototype warp core that Jonathon helped to design. In the event only two people were killed, one of whom was the Chief Medical Officer and Jonathon's close friend, Caliga Saunders.

Starfleet ruled the incident an unavoidable accident and placed Jonathon back in command of the Vesuvius with the latest version of the engine. Jonathon still blames himself for the incident that killed his friend.
