Pre-Starfleet History: Valek ran the family business for a few years after his parents died, until his younger siblings could take over. Then he turned his attention back to his career and eventually joined Starfleet.

Starfleet History: Served aboard the USS Cochrane, an exploratory research vessel involved in cartography and star-mapping. He later served aboard the USS Velasquez, a high security destroyer, until his disillusionment with Doenitz became too great. He considers his position within the Academy a way to help route those cadets of talent and intelligence to LoDona’s Fleet.

He has a reputation for being intimidating… but in fact, if he believes that a cadet is doing the best he or she can, he can be counted on to go the extra mile to help the cadet achieve success.

Former Cadets[edit]
