|Personal History||Savok was born on Vulcan in 2283, and raised in the traditional Vulcan way, learning of the Vulcan disciplines, and mental control. As he grew up, like his brother, he was encouraged to learn the ways of science, something which had run in the family for many generations. Up until his 18th Birthday, Savok led a fairly simple life, spending his free time with his studies.
2301 – 2305: Vulcan Science Academy
Savok enters the Vulcan Science Academy. He studies Archaeology and Alien History among other things.
Savok is part of a team, with his father, who discovers a planet not on any star charts. The planet belongs to a species called the Atheryians, an isolationist people who shunned contact with the rest of the galaxy. They were able to cloak their planet to prevent people from finding them, and Savok was a part of the team that helped repair the cloak. He promised to never reveal the secret of the Atheryians to anyone, as did the rest of the team. To date, he has kept his promise.
2305 – 2309: Starfleet Academy
2305-2306 (Year 1):
Upon graduation from the Vulcan Science Academy, Savok applied to, and was accepted into, Starfleet Academy. His family pleads with him to not follow that course of action, since Selok wanted him to follow his footsteps. There was a heated discussion which led to Savok refusing to speak with his family again.
During his first year, he makes a number of friends at the academy, some on his first day during a science lecture when he stood up in front of the class and successfully disproved two of the professor’s scientific equations. This created a personal and professional interest in Savok. He was given access to the academy’s science labs for personal projects, something he found most enjoyable (although he would never admit it) and used the labs to further his studies on chemical sciences and biology.
2306-2307 (Year 2):
During his second year at the academy, Savok is asked by his professor’s to lead a field trip to Turkana 4, an uninhabited planet with a wealth of ruins. Savok did so, being backed up by the USS Hood, and whilst on the planet, the team, under Savok’s guidance, was able to not only decipher the language littered around the ruins, but was also able to determine that they still lived underground. Savok and the team found the people, but determined that they were a pre warp drive civilisation, so they left the planet, and took all traces of their visit with them, imposing a ban on the planet, in accordance with the Prime Directive.
Savok was also selected for a diplomatic mission to Elkara 2, a planet that was at war with itself, the primary three continents being the aggressors. It took six months for the mission to produce any results, with most of the team wanting to launch a pre-emptive strike, but Savok kept pushing for a peaceful resolution, eventually using his knowledge of Starfleet history to devise a solution. He managed to steal one of the weapons of both sides, and used the USS Hood, also there as backup, to send out a subsonic pulse which disabled all of the weapons on the planet.
Whilst both sides attempted to create new weapons, the diplomatic team was able to use the respite in the fighting to create a new diplomatic option. The Elkarans signed a peace treaty, and soon after joined the Federation. However, despite his actions helping to prevent the Elkarans killing themselves, he was given an official reprimand for his actions, which were seen as a breach of the prime directive, as they had been there as mediators only. Unofficially, he was praised and even thrown a celebration dinner.
2307-2308 (Year 3):
In the early part of his third year at the academy, Savok went on a field trip, where he was to study various earth plants. However, he only took one tricorder with him which malfunctioned. He was trying to take readings of plants when they registered as monkeys. He saw another cadet, and asked for her assistance, but he immediately felt a connection with her. The cadet, Alyssa Greystone, also 25, felt a similar connection, both professionally and physically. Whilst Savok wanted to get to know her before engaging in a relationship, fate had other ideas and Savok experienced his first Pon Farr. Alyssa, who had studied Vulcan’s, mated with Savok, and the two became an official couple.
Savok’s third year was largely unremarkable, with his spare time being spent with Alyssa. He enjoyed her company and the two went on trips together, picnics, study trips, everything, spending all the time they could together. Savok found Alyssa fascinating, and when he was around her, he lost all sense of his Vulcan discipline. Around anyone else, however, he was as cool and collected as ever.
2308-2309 (Year 4):
Savok and Alyssa’s final year was full of revision and studies, pushing the boundaries of their knowledge and also studying every text that they could find, relevant to their studies or not. By the time their final exams came around, Savok and Alyssa were more than ready and passed the course with flying colours.
USS Constitution (2309-2331):
Savok and Alyssa Greystone assigned to USS Constitution with the rank of Ensign. Both were married in October of that year at the age of 26. The Captain gives them special dispensation to have their own quarters rather than separate shared quarters.
Savok and Alyssa design a new medical instrument to help doctors in surgery, involving micro transporters. However, the project fails as the technology available is not sufficient to create the micro transporters or sensors that are sensitive enough to perform the surgery. They shelf the idea, working on it every so often.
Savok and Alyssa promoted to the rank of Lt. JG, with Savok being named Assistant Chief Science Officer.
Savok enters Pon Farr. Savok also named Chief Science Officer, Alyssa named Assistant Chief Science Officer. Both promoted to full braid Lieutenant. They are given their own senior officer quarters to share.
Savok helps discover a new alien species, the Carosians. They are a planet of traders, most of their technology having been gained from trading for Dilithium, as they have a number of moons in their system full of Dilithium. Orion Pirates attempt to pose as the Federation to get the Dilithium, Savok uncovers the plot and the Constitution, along with the Adelphi, sends the Orion’s packing. Letter of Commendation given to Savok.
Savok promoted to Lt. Commander after he is able to save the ship from destruction following an impact with a large asteroid. He works with the CEO in order to stabilise the ship, risking his own life.
Savok enters Pon Farr.
Savok works with the CEO of the Constitution to create a new power generator, which is installed aboard the Constitution as a backup power generator. All field tests prove that the generator works, and the specifications are sent to Starfleet. The designs are used across the fleet. Starfleet awards Savok with the Montgomery Scott award of Engineering Excellence.
USS Constitution attacked by Orion Pirates. Savok is instrumental in fighting them off, especially when they board the ship. Savok prevents the destruction of the USS Constitution, and is awarded the Christopher Pike Medal for Valor.
Alyssa kidnapped by Orion Syndicate, in retaliation of Savok’s foiling of their plans the previous year. Savok takes temporary command of the USS Constitution to go after the pirates, an action sanctioned only by the crew of the Constitution. Savok leads an away team to a Syndicate base of Operations and shuts it down, freeing a number of slaves in the process. Savok awarded with second Christopher Pike Medal of Valor.
S’dan born. Savok promoted to Commander and named First Officer of the USS Constitution, retaining his role of Chief Science Officer. He and Alyssa discover a previously unknown Star system, one which didn’t show up on any charts. The system belongs to the Atheryians, who took control of the star system, and cloaked it. The cloak was failing, but Savok designed a new energy collector for them to utilise the radiation from the sun. It was not possible to build by the Federation, but after the Constitution leaves, the system disappears, leading the Constitution to surmise that they were able to build the energy collector, giving Savok new lines of research. All knowledge of the Atheryians are erased from the Computer’s memories, and the crew are sworn to secrecy.
Savok enters Pon Farr.
Savok offered a command of his own. He turns it down in order to remain aboard the Constitution, which was in the middle of negotiations with a joint Andorian/Human colony. Both sides were having problems, which each side attributed to the other. Savok and the Constitution crew traced the problems back to a Romulan undercover agent, who disappeared before he could be caught, along with the evidence. A second conspirator is discovered among the Federation colonists; he takes his own life with a phaser set to disintegrate.
Savok and Alyssa, now 44, retired from the service in order to spend more time with S’dan, and with each other. This effectively ends their joint Starfleet career.
