|Personal History||Early life:-
Steven was born in Ballybrack, Southern Ireland to Dr Neal and Dr Alice Edgeware . Both doctors who worked in a local surgery.
They already had a daughter aged four. Sadly after Steven was born. His father was killed in a tragic accident. When he drowned in the sea. Trying to save a swimmer who had gotten into difficulties.
His mother and aunt believed strongly in the parenting skills of the 20th century. Strict but fair. Installing in Steven the importance of good manners and respect of ones elders. At the age of 3 he started to develop a photographic memory. Making him a good learner. By the age of 4 he was already learning subjects taught to children twice his age.
At the age of seven though. Things seemed to change. Steven became less of a perfect student and difficult to deal with. His mother often lost her patients with him. He became quite a nasty little boy. Then at the age of 9 things changed. But it took a stupid game of dare leading to his near death. To cause this.
His little gang dared him to climb up the side of a his house.He almost made it to the top but some brickwork gave way. Steven fell crashing through the glass window of his late fathers conservatory. His injuries were so bad the last rites were read over him.
But Steven somehow pulled through. It was while he was in hospital that his aunt became his private teacher. She turned a troublesome slacker into a good student. Steven did well under her tutelage. Whether it was the near death experience or her style of teaching. The young boy was now eager and pleasant to teach.
High school & teen years:-
Steven walked with a bad limp.During his early teens. Which meant it was a struggle to make friends. But he managed to turn the bullies around. Attended one of Britain’s top schools that boasted a long history. With some very notable ex students. The leg prevented him from taking up most sports. Except swimming which he excelled at and shooting. Holographic targets were used as cruel sports were banned on Earth many years ago.
He was often seen helping the other students with their work. In fact it was believed Steven would become a teacher. But as he leg got better. With his limp diminishing he soon became involved in many sports. Steven started to work on his physique turning the fat. He had developed due to his bad limp into muscle.
He never really had time for any serious girlfriends. Preferring to work on getting good grades. He did have a few lady friends. But treated them more like sisters then lovers. Started to learn martial arts to help get his waist back. Became quite at it. But his true love was lady Science.
Steven loved anything to do with biology.He would often drive his mother mad. Asking how her day went. Begging his aunt when she was pregnant with his cousin Boris. To use a scanner on her so he could study the unborn Foetus.
University and Starfleet Academy:-
Steven left school with extremely high grades. He attended college where his father made him. Study two subjects just in case he failed at one. Science and sports. He did very well at both and was Captain of his college swimming team. Moved on to University were he studied science. Specialising in Biology , Medical and Botany. He did excellent in all three subjects. Graduating with full honours.
Steven planned to take up teaching. But got angry when his mother kept pushing. Potential wives at him. Because she wanted him to get married now that he had no more studies. Silver was ok with having a girlfriend. But he wanted to find the love of his life on his own terms. Plus he felt it would be better to be settled in employment first. Family later.
But the constant nagging by his mother. Was a problem for Steven. He needed to get off world. So he escorted his Uncle on a painting tour of Bajor. He became quite close to their Bajorian fixer Revea. When the tour was over he contemplated staying with her. But her family had been badly hurt by the Cardassians. They did not wish her to get mixed up with a human.
It was his Revea who suggested Starfleet on his return to Earth. That way there could be a chance for them to meet again. When he entered the recruitment office. All thoughts of Revea vanished. Steven was hooked by the Starfleet bug. The chance to explore the galaxy and see things. No has ever seen before.
While at the academy he became quite friendly. With a fellow female vulcan Cadet. But things never matured after her father died and she left. He later discovered he died from Bendii Syndrome.
After four years of study. Steven did very well graduating with top marks in Medical and as a second subject just in case Science.
|Service Record||After graduating from Academy Steven spent three years.On the USS Pathfinder. Until the incident at Harmony bay mining colony.|
