History
Born in the Donetsk, Ukraine, Zander was known locally as the 'next big thing' for Starfleet. The only problem was that Zander had no intention of going to the Academy. He had issues with authority at school but was accepted to the Academy after his Father applied for him and ensured he came highly recommended.

He was always interested in journalism and was known at school as one of the most inquisitive children there. He was known for writing exposes on his teachers and fellow classmates.

He received a letter of recommendation from a number of Starfleet commanding officers who were suitably impressed with his aptitude tests. He managed to get through the first three years of Starfleet Academy successfully despite not being motivated to be there. When he was picking his dissertation topic when he decided he could not take anymore. He wanted to be aboard Starships but without the responsibility of being an officer & having to take care of so many people.

After doing a post-graduate course for the Federation News Service he was sent to Starbase Ronin as an associate reporter. It was there he remained until he uncovered a smuggling ring coming in and going out of the Starbase involving lower-ranking security and operations personnel on the station.

His abilities to feel certain emotions has served him fantastically well as he has the ability to feel whether he is being lied to which allows him to guide his questions.

He remained on the Starbase until the call of deep space beckoned to him and he applied for a transfer to the USS Tethys.
