|Personal History||Michael has a natural affinity for engines of any kind. Like a lot of Starfleet engineers he built models of starships as a child. He is a dedicated officer, his Marine training gives him understanding of the need of security in Main Engineering, while other Engineers see them as a hindrance he sees them as a necessity.
As stated above his wife's death has not affected his work, but this may not last.
Michael and Anna had known each other since they were children, but only started dating at high school. They broke up when Michael entered the Academy, but when he graduated, he asks her to marry him, she accepted and they were married the next year. Nine months later their daughter Chloe was born. Michael hated being away from his young family and spent time with them whenever he could.
As a Marine Engineer, Michael and his platoon would come in after a territory was secured and would construct a temporary Marine base and its ground defences. During one mission
In 2379 Michael transferred to Starfleet, believing it was safer for a man with a young family. His first billet was the USS Abel Tasman as a staff engineer. He learnt a lot, but his time aboard was rather uneventful.
Next he was assigned to the U.S.S. Nautilus. The Chief Engineer, Lt. Commander Thomas Baron, took an instance liking to Michael and made him his Assistant Chief.
Later during the tour the ship was attacked and boarded by pirates. When the pirates murdered Lt. Commander Baron, Michael took over an, the help of the engineering crew, was able to repel the boarders from Main Engineering. He was made Acting Chief.
In 2384 Anna charted a shuttle to meet him for his birthday, as the U.S.S. Nautilus was at Jupiter Station. During the trip the shuttle had to pass through the asteroid belt. The shuttle lost control and crashed into an asteroid. There were no survivors. When he was informed of the crash, he was granted bereavement leave and he went home to see his daughter who was staying with his sister and her husband.
In 2385 Michael returned to Starfleet, taking an instructor's position at the Academy, teaching Combat and general Engineering. He took this position to be closer to his daughter.
In 2394 at his daughter's insistence, he reluctantly returned to active duty and was assigned to the U.S.S. Endeavour as a Structural Engineer.
