Personal History Born 2.8.2358 aboard the Freighter Cordilan’s Folly in transit between Breighton’s World and Cl’gon’s Moon. The fifth of five children, Jon’s parents raised them all aboard the Folly, which they were 3/4 owners in.

Curt grew up learning the ins and outs of running a small freighter. Like his siblings, he ran maintenance and tried keep out of trouble (mostly) as the ship traveled between ports of call.

By the age of 14 he knew he wanted to serve in StarFleet (where the ships all worked, most of the time and following his father’s footsteps). His parents agreed. He was accepted into the Academy at age 16, and graduated in 2378 and was posted aboard the USS Kilauea, a Saber Class Destroyer as a helmsman. The Kilauea, assigned to been rushed to Post Dominion War patrol duties around StarBase 310 was a busy ship and in turn, Curtis was kept busy.

In 2379, now Lieutenant J.G. Thibodeaux had been second to the USS Longbow, a reconnaissance Cutter where his small ship experience shined. The Longbow’s Captain, Commander David Peters recommend him for promotion. Two month’s later, he returned to duties aboard the Kilauea.

Six months after that, Kilauea was part of a task force tracking Breen raiders and was subsequently destroyed at the battle of Cestus 7. He survived in one of the Kilauea’s escape pods, though it was 10 days until the damaged pod was recovered.

Upon return and completing required counseling, he was offered a permanent berth aboard the USS Longbow as her helmsman. Being a small ship, Curtis performed a wide set of duties beyond the helm, working with both operations and tactical in the pursuance of the Longbow’s mission. By 2382, he had been promoted to Lieutenant and been the Longbow’s 3rd officer for six months and saw duties as acting XO as well.

By 2383 he was acting as executive officer of the Longbow when Lieutenant Peters was transferred to the USS M’iridian, leaving Clark in command for several months (due to an administrative error) until a new captain was appointed. In 2384, he was transferred to chief operations officer of Starbase 310.

Two years later, Curtis was offered a position as third in command of the M’iridian by his old CO, now Captain Peters. Clark accepted He transferred aboard the Nova class escort which was tasked with escorting convoy’s around Deep Scace 4 and StarBase 185.

In 2390, after five years of active deep space patrolling, Peters was offered command of star base 621, which he accepted to offer more stability to his family. Clark stayed aboard as acting executive officer and was promoted to Lieutenant Commander. Two years later, he found himself belatedly attending command training at Star Fleet HQ. Shortly afterwards he was assigned to Vice Admiral Sheila Shy, a Fleet Inspector General.

When the assignment for the USS Valiant came up, he applied with the endorsement of the Admiral, who had also pushed through Curtis’s Promotion to Commander.

****
Curtis’s personal life has mostly been intermittent, leaving him to quote that if the Fleet had wanted him to have a relationship, he’d been issued one. Mostly, he’s been concentrating on work so long, that he considers himself a cliche and perhaps a lost cause. He does stay in touch with his parents and siblings fairly regularity.

His parents are now talking about retirement and his brother Allen is planning on taking command of the Folly, with his other brother George and their two families working the ship. His oldest sister, Veronica (whom he has always been closest to) lives on Mars. She’s an independent engineering consultant, married to another engineer.

His other sister, Rachel, is currently running a trade ship for an Orion shipping company. Rumors in the family are that it has some dealings with the Orion syndicates.
