Personality & Traits

General Overview James is a generally pleasant fellow but a slight sarcastic edge to the way he speaks. His time as a command officer gives him a bit of a professional buffer but every now and then his inner clown pokes its head out to say hello.

A history of violence and loss put James down for a while, even to the point of drinking for a while before eventually leaving Starfleet. Eventually frost became bored with retirement though and re-applied. When offered back his commission James decided to turn it down and come back as an NCO. He was tired of being an officer and making all the big decisions and decided his place was with the working stiffs. After retirement and with his new lease on life James is mostly able to keep a lid on his demons and focus on his tasks and relationships with his peers.

When he does have dark moments, bad dreams or moments of emotional exhaustion, his service Dog, Rosie (assigned to him by StarFleet medical) is usually there to calm him down.

James loves the people he works with. He will do everything to make sure that his crew is a happy crew. Unfortunately James can get very moody and more likely to make mistakes at any mention or sign of the Borg and he tends to get cranky when his late parents are mentioned.
Ambitions After being retired from Starfleet for a few years James' only ambition is to get back to exploring the unknown and enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded people.
Hobbies & Interests James loves tinkering with new technology, acting on stage in community theatre and watching historical movies. He loves cooking and experimenting with different cultural foods, sushi being his favourite.\

He also loves playing spy thrillers on the holodeck and taking his service dog Rosie for walks along the ship corridors.

Personal History James Frost had a happy childhood. He was raised by two wonderful parents, Amanda and Jack. His father was a stand-up comedian and his mother was a famous stage actor. While his family wanted him to join the entertainment business, what he really wanted to do was work with computers and machines. So after school he Joined Starfleet academy.

His first year at the academy was chaotic at best. It didn't take long for the other students to realize who his parents were at the academy and he was mocked and pestered to the point where his grades were affected. At the end of the year, he was taken aside by his Instructor who was able to mentor him back to model student status. Eventually James passed his engineering course with honours, much to his teachers delight.

His first assignment was as an ensign on board the USS Halifax. He worked on the warp core and other various systems with his former instructor. After helping stop a warp core breach, while the engineering department was filled with coolant, he was promoted to lieutenant.

When it came time for shore leave, James decided it best to take his family out for a cruise in the delta quadrant. Unfortunately they stumbled upon a damaged Borg scout vessel in the area and were captured. James was forced to watch his family undergo assimilation before his eyes. The USS Achilles answered the distress call and found James in stasis, almost completely assimilated. He was beamed to safety and the Borg ship destroyed with all hands onboard, including his parents and the majority of the other guests on the cruise.

James’ rehabilitation was fairly quick, he still went to counselling every few weeks, but he kept his job, as an engineer. Because of his ingenuity and knowledge of Borg systems, he was promoted to lieutenant commander. He also opted on keeping his Borg eye as a reminder of what he lost.

He briefly served as first officer on board the USS Guinevere before her decommission.

Soon afterwards James was posted aboard the USS Odin, an Excalibur Class Starship, as XO and Chief Engineer. He was later promoted to Commander, bizarrely by his own request. As the new XO he was sarcastic and moody and in a heated argument between an Admiral and Commodore Jack Walker, made a joke about wanting a promotion and to his surprise was given it!!

A few months into their assignment, the Odin is recalled and was refit. The Odin is then launched a few months later. They are reassigned to patrol the Gamma Quadrant. During a mission to find missing supply ships James Frost was suddenly given command of the Odin with the rank of Captain as Jack Walker left for personal reasons.

James went on to Command the USS Odin for two years until the Odin encountered the Borg. Frost was abducted and the USS Odin was damaged beyond repair. (Details of this mission are still highly classified by order of Starfleet Intelligence.) The USS Odin was deemed missing in action and James Frost was MIA as well for a few years, the reasons for which are still classified and was temporarily put in charge of the USS Odin A to investigate the disappearance of her namesake. After the investigation he was posted aboard SB 911 for a year where he quickly succumbed to past trauma and retired.
