Personal History:

  Pre-Starfleet:  Marcus was a prodigy child who grew up in New Orleans, on Earth.  His parents noted from an early age that he constantly craved the spotlight, no matter what he was doing; he always wanted someone to watch him.  After the family uprooted to Boston when he was fifteen, this desire translated into an early acceptance into the Hopkins Theatre School. Graduating High School two years early, Marcus became one of the top actors at Hopkins, and thought his life's future assured.  Little did he know that when he took a required theatre production technology course, it would open up to him an even deeper and more abundant talent: repair of machinery.  He took to this and made it his minor.  Fairly soon, he was able to fix whatever was broken, program rapidly any computer system he came across and even build some gadgets of his own.  After a long night of decision-making, he graduated Hopkins and applied to Starfleet Academy in hopes of fixing bigger and better things than ever before.


   Enrolled 2375. Graduated 95th of  843, 2379.  Reprimanded for Insubordination in Junior year. Commendation for Original Thinking in Senior year.

   Marcus did not take to Academy life at first.  His natural desire to be in the spotlight had lent itself to a fair degree of ego, and made him appear arrogant and conceited to his fellows.  The fact that he could back up his mechanical claims did not help matters.  In fact, he soon found himself in several physical altercations with Cadet Stanley Baldwin, who was an aspiring novelist.  Baldwin was eventually drummed out of the Academy, and found a successful career as a holodrama writer, none of which Marcus can abide to this day.  Earned the nickname "Face" after his Freshman roommate found a production poster from Hopkins in Marcus' personal belongings. He didn't mind it so it stuck.  He was cited for insubordination in his Junior Year for voluably disagreeing with his commander on a training simulation.  Though he believes still that his opinion was right, the way he went about expressing it earned him a permanent reprimand.  The next year, it was his turn to command engineering in the simulator.  This time, he tried his suggestion, and was given a commendation for original thinking.  This further served to spur his ego that he could do no wrong, as did his graduation in the top 100 of his class, and his instatement as a Lt. J.G right out of the Academy.
