Personality & Traits

General Overview Khaled is all business in his approach to his duties. He is not aiming to make friends, but for the few who are invited to his narrow universe, he is a committed friend.
Strengths & Weaknesses He is competent in his secondary shipboard duties as helm officer, and has the swagger associated with that position. He's also a loyal officer, desperate to gain approval in his role as first officer. As he is new to the exec position, his eagerness to do well sometimes causes him to not trust his crew to perform duties without his supervision, or even without him doing it himself.
Ambitions Khaled makes no secret of the fact that he is on the command track toward starship captaincy. He has his career mapped out to include command, Starfleet Academy professor, promotion to flag rank and then either a position in the Admiralty or Academy commandant.
Hobbies & Interests Games of chance. Model building. Unpowered flight (gliders, hang gliders). Spaceflight history of the Federation founding member worlds.

Personal History Khaled al Rashid hails from the family of Haroun al Rashid, an early president during the infancy of the United Federation of Planets. He is the son of Starfleet Commodore Faisal al Rashid, portmaster of Starbase 21.

It was never in doubt that young Khaled would enter Starfleet. He spent his youth in the deserts of Saudi Arabia on, flying gliders and falling in love with the human obsession with escaping the bonds of Earth's gravity. His father, who came up through Starfleet as an engineer, often joked that while he put starships together, his son would fly them apart.

In Starfleet Academy, Khaled was recruiting poster perfect. He maintained a fierce rivalry with fellow flight cadet Red Jarvis from Tycho City on Luna colony. Though Khaled never broke Red's time record on the Academy flight range, he did graduate with honors, while Red's multiple demerits landed him midrange in class ranking.

Despite Khaled's family connections, he could not land a posting the the prestigious Advanced Starship Design Bureau's flight testing team, and was incensed to find that the undisciplined Ensign Red Jarvis had, indeed, snagged a spot on that team.

The disappointment was momentary, though, as he drew the first of a handful of important deep space assignments as a relief helmsman on a series of scouts. He learned many practical, on-the-job lessons, like the importance of developing an almost symbiotic relationship with a starship navigator.
