Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Jacen is a bubbly man with a great sense of humour and a knack for picking up on tactical strategies, how they work and how to defeat them but also with the most inventive way possible, keeping within the rules. When it comes to his work Jacen is very committed to doing his job and one day hopes to be in the Captains Chair, although he is well aware of the job he needs to do to get there.
On his own, Jacen is very quiet because from time to time he experiences feeling of loss and sadness regarding the death of his mother at the hands of the Borg in the Battle of Sector 001 in 2372. With his Father serving on board the Starship Fury, Jacen and his sister Talia went to live with their Uncle where their relationship with him grew more close from the time they spent serving at his Repair Yard.
Jacen enjoys his time aboard when serving on duty and loves working with the crew. In his spare time he enjoys his collection of 20th and 21st century comic books and also enjoys spending time on the Holodeck researching and enjoying re-enactments of 20th/21st Century Motorsports and often has a go himself. He also enjoys reading science fiction stories and taking part in his favourite science fiction Holonovel "The Deathstalker Saga". Jacen also enjoys the sport of Archery on occasion.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Jacen's strengths lay in his ability to analyse a problem and try to solve it there and then in the quickest most efficient way possible. However he can also get over-excited when trying to apply himself because his has plenty of enthusiasm. He is a team player and can also step up to lead personnel and others if the call is made. When things are going well, he can feel confident and sure in his abilities and this gives him a drive to succeed in his work.
His weaknesses lie in when he is confronted with a situation that seemingly holds "no way out" or no resolution to it as this often reminds him of his mothers death at the Battle of Sector 001. This is something he has often tried to work through since her death but he can find this difficult when faced with a Pressure situation. He feels helpless at times in these situations and often suffers a lack of confidence if he feels that there is the possibility he could fail in the resolving the situation, putting the lives of others in danger. It often reminds him that there are no win situations that have to be faced.
|Ambitions||Jacen wants to progress through the ranks to one day make it to Command like his father has done, who captains the USS Fury. He understands that sitting in the Captain's Chair one day will happen but that it will take a lot of hard work and learning during his career. He has the drive and will to work hard to earn himself a Senior Officer position on board.|

|Personal History||Jacen was an average child at school, although his hard work and perseverance were noted in each school year. He left all the schools he went to with good scores. Jacen's course was always one set for the stars and he new that to get there he would have to do his best.
After School and his education, Jacen had decided the career he wanted before he was given an option to choose. To join Starfleet. Understanding his son's drive and determination to follow in the family tradition, Captain Rendar agreed with his son's wish to join Starfleet after completing his education.
Jacen and his sister Talia went to live with his Uncle Hank in England at his Repair Facility and spent time working there on everything from vehicles to small ships, to small garden implements. After a while of working there and still dreaming of the stars, Jacen went on to learn about Engineering, showing the knack of wanting to know how it worked and if it worked how it could work better. With his fathers blessing, Jacen applied for Starfleet Academy and he was accepted.
|Service Record||Jacen performed well at the academy and showed promise early on in his first year. He also showed his interest in Starship/Starbase Operations and he chose both Operations and Engineering as his courses to pursue. His tutors were impressed by his knowledge and speed of learning when it came to learning about new and current starship classes, how they worked and also how their Engineering and Operations took place. When it came to Jacen choosing his path, he was recommended that his talents would be best served on board a starship.
Once Graduating from Starfleet Academy four years later in 2373, Jacen was commissioned an Ensign. However war broke out with the Dominion and Jacen received orders from Starfleet to join the crew of the Ambassador Class USS Fury, the ship commanded by Captain Novak Rendar... Jacen's father. The ship took part in many of the battles that took place against the Jem'Hadar and later the Cardassians including Operation Return and the taking of the Chin'toka system. The Fury also took part in the final battle in Cardassian territory and despite taking heavy damage, the ship survived and was put in for a refit at Earth Station McKinley after the war ended. However during the Fury's refit period, it became obvious the pain of his mothers death a few years earlier had made things difficult on board between Jacen and his father and he requested a transfer.
With the war at an end and Starfleet looking to return to peaceful exploration, Jacen learned of positions available on the Nebula Class Vessel USS Juno being prepped to go out and explore the Beta Quadrant and felt certain his talents would be served well on board the ship in both Engineering and Operations, so he transferred.
Jacen served aboard the Juno in 2375, exploring the Beta Quadrant and charting many star systems and civilisations. During this assignment Jacen was assigned the position of Assistant Chief Engineering Officer where he learnt to calm down from his "wartime" self and found the exploration assignment allowed him to find an inner calm and learn to enjoy exploration and discovery again.
The Juno was recalled after suffering extensive damage during a battle near the Neutral Zone inside a Nebula with a Mogwai Class Romulan Warbird. The battle itself was due to a claim on the region made by the Romulans who were looking to setup a secret base in the area with the Juno stumbling across this situation whilst charting the region.
After a year in dock where he assisted in repairs, Jacen was promoted to Assistant Chief Operations Officer. The Juno was declared spaceworthy again and re-assigned to patrol along the Romulan Border, providing material and humanitarian aid to the devastated Romulan Star Empire. During the Borg Invasion of 2381, Jacen proved his skill and value member to the crew as the Juno was part of a fleet of starships that defended planets in the Romulan Empire from Borg attacks. He was instrumental on several occasions during the invasion in on board repairs and original thinking towards mechanical issues on board.
After the end of the Borg Invasion in 2381, The Juno put in at McKinley station for refit. Due to the loss of many crew members during the Invasion, Jacen remained on board as Assistant Chief Operations Officer. The Juno was being sent on a second mission of exploration in the Beta Quadrant, following on from the ships previous mission. Jacen enjoyed this second tour aboard as the crew charted many star systems and civilisations. During their time exploring, Jacen employed his original thinking for repairs and solutions during different skirmishes with the Breen who had made claims of territory in unexplored regions of the Beta Quadrant.
The Juno was recalled by Starfleet for a refit at the end of her mission and put in at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards.
Jacen learned of positions available on the Vesta Class USS North Star, that was assigned to explore the Delta Quadrant and felt certain his talents would be served well on board the ship in both Engineering and Operations, so he transferred as Assistant Chief Operations Officer. During his time there, he assisted in working out several system issues that were then translated to the other Vesta Class starships in the fleet.
After a year of service as a trouble shooter on the North Star, Jacen was assigned to the Nova Class USS Valkyrie, that was assigned to explore the Gamma Quadrant so he transferred as Assistant Chief Engineer.
Jacen served aboard the Valkyrie for a year exploring the Gamma Quadrant and charting many star systems and civilisations, following on from Starfleet's renewed mandate to return to its exploration routes.
Whilst en route to Tysoe V, the ship encountered a Borg Cube which attacked the Valkyrie and assimilated the crew, except for Jacen, whom the Borg Queen kept alive for study. Starfleet Intelligence has officially classified period in Jacen's file, where officially he is MIA. However he retains a full memory of the time spent with the Borg and the Borg Queen, something that he will not speak of easily.
After being rescued from the surface of Mohindra III, Jacen served at Starfleet Operations on Earth and going through extensive therapy, counselling and debriefing during that time. Eventually he was declared fit for duty on board a starship again and when the Assistant Chief Operations Officer position became available on the USS Tornado, Jacen applied.
