 Additional Information: Aidan grew up in upstate NY on an apple farm. Not content with that pastoral life, he joined the Corps at 18 against his parent's wishs. During the first year, he met and fell in love with Kice  Carol, where she was quickly pregnant. Setting himself apart in the first few skirmishes he rose to the rank of E-4 when he was offered and opportunity to go back and commit to OCS in Starfleet academy to earn his commission.  In the years that followed, he and his wife grew apart mostly due to his long tours and constant call ups to put out the next fire blooming on the horizon. Due one long drunken brawl, Aidan was dropped from Major to First Lieutenant. Working hard to put the past behind him, and finding his particular talents of need, he was again promoted to Captain and sent to his next duty station. 

 Upon reaching the Lavie, several successful skirmishes with the FSF, the President pushed through Aidan's promotion back to Major. He is back in his element career-wise, though the emotional turmoil of Yuka/Emily is a new area for him. Testing his long held beliefs, he is finding that sometimes love is not what he thought it was while pushing his boundaries to what love really entails.
