Personal History Martin was born the local planet in the system during a civil war with lasted till he was 14 then he went to school graduating when he was 18 and being accepted into the academy on earth when Landau was 19

Landau's father was alive until he went to Starfleet Academy when one fateful night his mom sent a letter saying his father was killed in the line of duty when his ship exploded from a warp core meltdown trying to save the crew. Landau was afraid that it would happen to him.

Landau's mother attempted to stop him from doing what his father had done and insisted that he enlist in medical but Martin felt that only women enlisted in medical and counselling and boys took command of ships and became marines. She told him to never speak of that again.

Martin enrolled in Starfleet academy and spent a few years there training as a command cadet before finally graduating and getting into the job. The first position Landau ever had was an Admiral's Aide at Starfleet R&D Headquarters for about 5 years before returning to the academy for 3 years as strategic operations officer.

The academy position was made redundant and they didn't need Martin anymore so he was transferred to his first offworld posting of Starbase 6. This was a new experience for Landau as he had never been off the planet apart from his homeworld. He spent most of his time as an Ensign experiencing new things and new friends enjoying the new experiences with the utmost importance of the role and opportunity. Sadly Starbase 6 was decommissioned and a promotion was a foot but another challenging role lay ahead take the promotion but be consigned to Nottingham or stay ensign for life. Martin chose the posting with curiosity and interest in his brain wondering what a colony posting was like. He enjoyed the experience yet again and had his ups and downs trying to hold the colony together as XO.

Martin was moved after the failure of Nottingham becoming a diplomats aide for one of his own peoples ambassadors. He enjoyed it pretty well getting to meet strange and wonderful people, places and situations. During his time as an aide Landau ranked up from Ltjg to LT gaining more experiences and stories to add. The ambassador no longer needed my use and Martin was relinquished in 2345 to be positioned for LTcmdr rank becoming the CinCs Aide for a very long time meeting lots of new faces and people along the way. He loved this job and was treated differently from other people and was given special privileges to information and other high ranked classified info. The special privileges came with the job and Martin learned lots of wonderful things nobody else should know.

The Archer was a sabre class ship well part its use by date and was ready to be mothballed so doing the right thing Martin jumped ship being placed as Chief Strategic Operations Officer for a bit seeing what the ship offered for its age. Landau was transferred to starbase Vanguard but it was worth it to experience more and more joining the crew. He spent his time learning the job role and its quirks being on a starbase.

Martin returned to Earth and another stint with the CinC Aide's position. Martin didn't know it but this was going to be as high as he was going to get for a while but made the most of it. The Rockhampton was looking for an XO so the CinC transferred me to the new ship as she felt my knowledge would be useful to the crew and the ship. This was a new experience being on a brand new ship was different from being on an old outdated ship on its last legs but he got on with it.

Layla had been out of the academy for a few years now and had gained a position of command aboard the Leeds. A centaur class was a new experience for myself as Starfleet transferred Martin to the all female crew. Landau was XO in an all female crew made him a bit uncomfortable around other Starfleet officers who would laugh and make fun of him for being under a family members command and being on an all female crewed ship. Landau felt embarrassed but took the experience with an open heart moulding the female crew into a fighting force and the best crew of a centaur class within the fleet and that ship class.

Martin was enjoying his many roles and position he had under his belt at the moment but fate would come around again. The diplomat Landau had served with was after an aide and Starfleet assigned me again. More experiences within the galaxy and more stories to tell where unfolding yet again this would be his last position before finding a more permanent position. Being 112 years old was great but Martin felt he would rather like to spend his days on a ship with a set crew to work with and to stay with
