|Personal History||Early life:-
Ted was born in London England to Dr Neal and Dr Alice Silver. Both doctors attached to Starfleet medical. His younger brothers were born ten and fourteen years later. His parents did there best to stay on Earth. So their children could have a settled childhood.
His parents believed strongly in the parenting skills of the 20th century. Strict but fair. Installing in Ted the importance of good manners and respect of ones elders. At the age of 3 he started to develop a photographic memory. Making him a good learner. By the age of 4 he was already learning subjects taught to children twice his age.
At the age of seven though. Things seemed to change. Ted became less of a perfect student and difficult to deal with. His parents often lost their patients with him. He became quite a nasty little boy. Then at the age of 9 things changed. But it took a stupid game of dare leading to his near death. To cause this.
His little gang dared him to climb up the side of a his house.He almost made it to the top but some brickwork gave way. Ted fell crashing through the glass window of his fathers conservatory. His injuries were so bad the last Wright’s were read over him.
But Ted somehow pulled through. It was while he was in hospital that a private teacher was hired to school him. Marcus Dubah turned a troublesome slacker into a good student. Silver did well under his tutelage. Whether it was the near death experience or Dubah’s style of teaching. The young boy was now eager and pleasant to teach.
High school & teen years:-
Ted walked with a bad limp.During his early teens. Which meant it was a struggle to make friends. But he managed to turn the bullies around. Attended one of Britain’s top schools that boasted a long history. With some very notable ex students. The leg prevented him from taking up most sports. Except swimming which he excelled at and shooting. Holographic targets were used as cruel sports were banned on Earth many years ago.
He was often seen helping the other students with their work. In fact it was believed Silver would become a teacher. But as he leg got better. With his limp diminishing Ted soon became involved in many sports. He started to work on his physique turning the fat. He had developed due to his bad limp into muscle.
He never really had time for any serious girlfriends. Preferring to work on getting good grades. He did have a few lady friends. But treated them more like sisters then lovers. Started to learn martial arts to help get his waist back. Became quite at it. But his true love was lady Science.
Ted loved anything to do with science. He would often drive his parents mad. Asking them how their day went. Begging his mother when she was pregnant with his brother Boris. To use a scanner on her so he could study the unborn Foetus.
University and Starfleet Academy:-
Silver left school with extremely high grades. He attended college where his father made him. Study two subjects just in case he failed at one. Science and sports. Ted did very well at both and was Captain of his college swimming team. Moved on to University were he studied science. Specialising in Biology , Medical and Botany. He did excellent in all three subjects. Graduating with full honours.
Ted planned to take up teaching. But got angry when his mother kept pushing. Potential wives at him. Because she wanted him to get married now that he had no more studies. Silver was ok with having a girlfriend. But he wanted to find the love of his life on his own terms. Plus he felt it would be better to be settled in employment first. Family later.
But the constant nagging by his mother. Was a problem for Silver. He needed to get off world. Take up a teaching post on another planet.
For a short time he tutored the Gorn Ambassador to Vulcan’s PA’s son. It was here he struck up a friendship with the Gornlings bodyguard Russhook.
It was his old teacher Dubah who suggested Starfleet on Teds return to Earth. Once Silver visited the recruitment bureau he was hooked.
After four years of study. Silver did very well graduating with top marks in Science and as a second subject just in case Security.
