Personal Background:

Rip Stargrazer was born the 'spare' to the heir of the Stargrazer Shipping Consortium fortune. Family current net worth estimated to be in the 14 quadrillions.

Aware early that he'd live in high style without knowing anything, he was a restless child whose sole delight was tormenting his older brother. He grew up feckless, athletic, well coordinated and quite handsome.

To the embarrassment of his family, Ripley's initial adult pursuits were modeling for a scandalous sports cologne company and being the least paid member of a booze-cruise "star tour" company. Somewhere along the cruising, Ripley learned to pilot ships.

After working the ship lanes and taking numerous piloting courses, he came to Starfleet Academy. He showed talent for flying and mechanical engineering. He also received several demerits for lack of decorum, unexplained absences, and insubordination.

Personality Profile:

Rip is his own man, given to too much drink, and too boisterous a nature. He can be a fine officer for extended periods of time, but seems to stumble hard. He has been demoted twice. The most recent demotion stems from repairing a shot-up Federation runabout's flight controls by vaporizing a water condenser that was in the way. He and the crew went thirsty for 3 days before they could return to base. His transfer to the USS Zealous is considered politically motivated by constituents loyal to his family.
