Another STO Crew AdditionFebruary 24, 2010
Okay, I know I’m not supposed to be playing that much Star Trek Online while waiting for my better half to catch up, but fiddling with my Bridge Officer skills doesn’t count as breaking our leveling pact, so I’m still allowed to do that.
The last time I got to really play the game, I had made some changes to my weapons loadout. As a result, I welcomed another newly-commissioned BO to my crew to serve as backup Tactical Officer, hence this short bio. Ugh, someone really needs to come in and school me on the Ferengi ways, because Mr. MMO Gamer Chick believes they were the lamest Star Trek villains and I got little more out of him than that they’re “evil, scheming capitalists.” I still don’t know much about his race, but I’ll try my best. Nothing crazy here!
Erpax hails from a long line of successful merchants and traders, and grew up in a fairly affluent environment. Like all good Ferengi children, he familiarized himself with the Rules of Acquisition at a young age, but deep down in his heart he always knew there was something different about him. Despite his father’s teachings and his hopes for his son to follow in his footsteps, Erpax had no desire to lead a life constantly in pursuit of material wealth. Instead, his interests laid in space exploration. Tired of feeling like there was something wrong with him, Erpax ran away from home one day and decided to follow his dream, even if it meant being shunned by his family. He finally achieved happiness by joining Starfleet, and found his calling as a valuable Tactical Officer on T’Adroma’s crew aboard the U.S.S. Savannah. Erpax walks around with a perpetual scowl on his face, but those close to the young Ferengi know it’s not a sign of disdain, but is instead evidence of his fierce determinism to make it on his own.
