Personality & Traits

General Overview Sinek is definitely Vulcan, following the ways of logic. His interest in worlds beyond explored space is comparable to those of his race that reached out to Zefram Cochrane. Logic dictated that he become an Astrobiologist.

His logic did not stop with Astrobiology. With the fact of so much unexplored space, then the existence of undiscovered creatures is only logical. To him, this was an aspect of infinite diversity in infinite combinations. Sinek added to his credentials Cryptozoologist.

Personal History Sinek was born on the Vulcan home world to Ambassadors Vesik and T'Qal. His parents raised Sinek to be a true Vulcan, one proud of his logical upbringing and heritage.

Despite Sinek's parents being involved in his training, Sinek was drawn to his exploring Uncle. Tuvek was the captain of the USS Tesla, a Federation Science Ship. Vesik and T'Qal thought this attraction illogical and assumed that Sinek would pursue the path of diplomacy, especially since Tuvek was serving aboard a Federation ship and not a Vulcan.

In his youth however, Sinek spoke with Tuvek about pursuing Science. When Sinek asked Tuvek why he served aboard a Federation ship when Vulcan's logic and thought were far superior to human or other races, Tuvek explained that it was only logical that Vulcans share this gift of their heritage in the Star Fleet world. In that manner, the other races would begin to learn to think more logically.

When Sinek announced to his parents that he was joining Star Fleet and following in his uncle's footsteps, they had trouble accepting his decision. Vesik and T'Qal attempted to use their logical arguments to dissuade this path. However, Sinek's logic pointed to Science.

He majored in both Astrobiology and Cryptozoology at the Academy in San Francisco. To him, the fact of so many undiscovered planets and species was an aspect of infinite diversity in infinite combinations. He found the study of other possible life forms fascinating.

His years in the Academy brought him many achievements. His Vulcan heritage would not let him settle for mediocre. Sinek graduated with honors, but not many friends. Those graduating with Sinek, recognized his loyalty and drive, but did not get close due to Sinek not letting them inside his emotions.

Sinek's first post was aboard the USS Atlantis. He served aboard this ship for ten years, exploring and advancing to the rank of Lieutenant JG.

He advanced to Lieutenant aboard the USS Bacon, a Science Ship. Still not knowing many of his shipmates in a personal way, Sinek soon became the butt of a pun on his name. They started to refer to him a Cynic because of his drive to become the best. Sinek's logic could not grasp people's laughter when his name was spoken.

When Sinek was promoted to Lieutenant Commander, Captain Tuvek brought a former Science Officer and now Ambassador to him. Sinek will never forget the advice Ambassador Spock gave to him. "It is more logical to open up and truly know the individuals with whom you serve. Yours and their lives may depend on it some day."

Now at age 78, Sinek is aboard the USS Hera. He was transferred to become the CSO of the Hera. Although specifically not a scientific ship, Sinek believes that the skills he has learned from his studies plus his leadership abilities will be an asset to the crew. The facts of logic will apply to their missions. Logic only dictates the answers. So, he is sure that he will be able to lend to the investigations. It may be that his own knowledge may be needed in some of the investigations.
