|Personal History||David was born in 2259, the eldest son of Gillbert and Erin Arbroath. His parents met while serving on the USS Republic, and David--plus his three siblings--grew up around Starfleet all their lives. The family spent time on both starships/bases, and planetside at Earth and Corridan. David even met officers from the famous starship Enterprise, if only briefly.
Entering the Academy in 2277, David excelled in Communications and Psychology. This lead him to pursue the former as his major, and Counseling as a minor. Graduating with high marks in 2281, David spent time at Starfleet Headquarters, where he met his wife, Tessa. She was working as a civilian attache, and their whirl-wind romance ended in marriage in early 2282, quickly followed by the birth of their first child, Alysha.
Two years later found David on the starship USS Chancellor, a Miranda-class cruiser. There he distinguished himself in a battle with the Klingons, being able to decode messages between three birds-of-prey. Earning a commendation, it was recommended that he seriously consider a command track.
Over the next decade, David served aboard three vessels--USS Saratoga, USS Bhutan, and USS T'plana Hath. When the Saratoga docked at Earth for repairs following the whale probe crisis of 2286, David was able to see his wife and young daughter. In 2289, the family grew by one with the birth of their daughter Kristin.
