Born in Toyko, Japan to American
parents, his name didn't fit in correctly, so he shortened in to Kal.
Kal was free-spirited, and always dreamed of having his own spaceship.
He attended Starfleet Academy to learn all about starships, and how they
work. After Starfleet Academy, he didn't join a Federation ship, but instead
built his own ship, the "Bounty's Choice", had made a small
fortune in smuggling illegal substances for the Ferengi and various other
races. He was attacked once by some unhappy customers. The Bounty's Choice
was badly damaged, and was left adrift. Luckily, a Federation ship was
passing by, and he was rescued. He thanked Starfleet by finally joining
as a Engineer, his second favourite job, the first being smuggling.
