Family and Background:[edit]

Andrews’ childhood was spent with his parents on whatever station or starship they were stationed on. After they retired the family lived in Mombassa, Kenya until Vincent left for school.

At one time a physically imposing man, Andrews was severely injured in the line of duty during a battle on board the USS Lexington. Andrews lost both legs above the knees and due to severe nerve damage he is confined to a hover-chair and cannot use prosthetics. Despite this he remains in excellent physical condition and his arms and upper body are heavily muscled.

Vincent is heavily scarred from the waist down a legacy of the injuries he suffered aboard the Lexington. Despite the best efforts of Starfleet Medical he is increasingly suffering from side affects of his injuries and his health is in decline.

Vincent was on the fast track to promotion and before his injuries and there had been those in Starfleet who were betting that he would break the record as the youngest officer promoted to Admiral in Starfleet history. An expert in tactics he also showed a flare for diplomacy before his accident.

While in the Academy Andrews Majored in Tactics and Strategic Operations where he achieving top honors, and graduating number 6 in his class.

Andrews is multitalented and is as comfortable planning a land campaign as he is a fleet action. Andrews is known for developing only the most basic of battle plans as he is very much a proponent of the philosophy that “no plan survives contact with the enemy.

Before his injuries Andrews consistently scored at Marksman level with hand held weapons and had achieved a black belt in Karate.
