Personality & Traits

Personal History Early Childhood:

Born on September 4th of 2486 at Starfleet Medical Adjunct Terra 12 in Minneapolis Robert grew up in what most consider the typical Starfleet family. His father Joseph Lansine served aboard the USS Pandora as the Chief Science Officer while his mother worked from home as a Starfleet Medical Researcher. Growing up in a family with connections in Starfleet as long ago as the NX-02 Columbia, Robert was ingrained with a strong feeling of commitment to his family's line of officers.

During his elementary schooling days Robert and his family lived the typical Terran lifestyle and enjoyed their position in the community. Robert's mother was a respected researcher and his father was one of the highest regarded researchers for the Daystrom Institute. Robert and his sister Rebecca attended local schools and participated in many activities--by all considerations the Lansine family was 'normal'.


The fairy tale would come to an end in the summer of 2399 when Joseph Lansine was indicted for treason by the Starfleet Judge Advocate General's office. The Lansine family was ravaged by the constant attention from the press, Lisa was forced to relocate back home with the children away from Starfleet Headquarters and both kids changed schools the next fall. Starfleet, concerned with the threats the family was receiving, attached a security contingent with each of them during the remainder of the trial. During the next two months Lisa, Robert and Rebecca would live under lock and key away from Joseph and the rest of their old life.

The trial concluded in a bit of fanfare when the Lansine family was allowed to attend the final hearing. When the guilty verdict was handed down after a final deliberation between the three JAG Commanders a look of terror swept across their faces--their father would no longer be able to live on any Federation member planet of colony and would be dishonorably discharged from his service in Starfleet. Rob, only 13 at the time of the trial, was devastated. The man he'd admired his entire life was no a criminal. The emotional roller-coaster that followed the trial ultimately split the family apart, Rob leaving with his father to Orion IV, a colony outside Federation jurisdiction, while Lisa and Rebecca stayed on Earth.

Off World:

Rob leaving his father on Orion IV.
It only took a few weeks for the Lansine boys to arrange their change of residence and only four days at Warp 8 to reach their new home. Orion IV was exactly as Rob had pictured it when his father had told him the location of their home: dirty, riddled with crime, and in almost every comprehensible way, the opposite from what Rob had grown up in on Earth.

The first few months proved to be more than difficult for Rob who often found himself on the wrong side of a threat or the victim of petty theft. However, despite his problems early on Rob would soon begin melding into the way of life on Orion IV as he found a man named Walz. Walz was a human ten or so years younger than Rob's estranged father and he dealt in a variety of goods and services in and around Orion controlled space--some less legal (in the terms of the Federation) than others. Unbeknownst to his father, Rob began working for Walz in a small capacity in 240003 and worked his way up through the crime lord's cartel of illegality for two years until Rob accidentally stumbled upon information from a Federation woman traveling through the sector. Pieces of information regarding Joseph Lansine's trial were declassified as early as one year after their departure from Earth and after he was informed by the woman of what his father had actually been charged of it infuriated him: his father hadn't only been charged with treason but for the negligent homicide of six of his former colleagues.

Without returning home that evening Rob boarded the Federation transport that the woman had come to Orion IV in and left the planet for good. Never speaking to his father or Walz again, Rob set out to redefine himself.

Return to Earth and Starfleet Academy:

After spending several months on several passenger and cargo vessels, Rob returned to Earth in the summer of 2402. Upon disembarking from the San Francisco space port Rob felt the urge to rush back home to his mother and sister. It took Rob two hours of walking around the terminal to clear his mind and decide to instead take what little things he had to an apartment complex he remembered an old friend lived at. The Academy Chateau was only three blocks from Starfleet Academy Headquarters, and Rob lived there, maintaing a small job at a coffee house to keep his landlord happy. Once the fall semester at the Academy began Rob began meeting dozens of eager cadets; a day didn't go bye that one of them didn't urge him to enroll. Each time Rob graciously declined, but below his bitter feelings toward Starfleet sat a desire to prove himself. His father's sins had defined him for the better part of his teenage years and now he was finally in a position to step out from beneath his shadow.

That fall Rob enrolled in a series of pre-academy courses designed to bring him up to speed with what he'd missed since leaving Earth. Despite having no formal schooling since junior high, Rob had managed to stay moderately stimulated on Orion IV through several different means. When the Spring semester began the next year Rob was accepted into the Academy and began an accelerated program to graduate with the class of his correct age. Through his own academic rigor and sleepless nights of studying, Rob graduated the Academy on 240812.05, taking only one and a half years to complete his three year program.
