HISTORY-- Captain Nouristao Kematsopoulos
Rank: Captain (CPT)
Current Assignment: Commanding Officer, USS Eagle NCC 2185
Full Name: Nouristao Kematsopoulos
Nouristao Kematsopoulos was born on Crete, Earth in 2267 to Dr. Woo Luin'dro and Dr. Demetrious Kematsopoulos. His early childhood was without incidence. Dr. Woo and Dr. Kematsopoulos were pacifists and respected archaeologists. They both believed that knowledge of ancient history of a race result in a better understanding of a culture. That, they believed to be key in avoiding future conflicts. They held high aspirations to one day work on digs for Romulans, Klingons, the Orion Syndicate and others that the Federation did not call allies.
Nouristao Kematsopoulos spent his time surrounded by the elements of different cultures, including what was known of the above. Drs. Woo and Kematsopoulos believed that cultural and linguistic immersion was necessary to understand a people. The young Nouristao learned many languages and often accompanied his parents on the digs. Many years were spent on Vulcan, where as a child, he met his future wife, T'Nar.
Intensely bored accompanying his parents around the galaxy on digs, he engaged actively in mischief and pranks until he discovered technical studies and Asian and Cretan martial arts, military history and tinkering with equipment as a way to relieve the boredom.
His parents were disturbed by his choice of studies, in particular his fascination (or fixation as they thought) with military matters and sent packing him home to China to be raised in a more stable environment by his maternal grandparents. Their plans went awry. His grandparents could deny him nothing and indulged his mechanical and martial leanings heavily. His grandmother, Dr. Woo, a surgeon and physician, even enrolled him in the prestigious Wu Pei Technological and Science Academy. Unknown to his parents he continued and added to his studies a number of the martial arts (especially Chin Na, Hing Gar Ch'uan, Choy Lee Fut, and Ch'i Kung).
In his junior year in high school he excelled at the Daystrom Technological Institute High School Competition. His paper, "Techniques in Recalibrating Sensors Arrays for Nebular Anomalies and their Respective Modifications," won him first place and a scholarship to attend the Institute's coveted summer symposium for young scientists.
Nouristao Kematsopoulos was appointed to and entered Starfleet Academy in June of 2285 against his parents vehement protests that he not become part of the "Galactic War Machine". The parents had hoped that his time on Earth would distract him from his military and martial interests.
During his time at the Academy, he distinguished himself as an excellent student in engineering despite his strong theoretical mathematics background. In his sophomore year at the Academy, Kematsopoulos' parents were assigned to their chance of a life time. They received a communication stating that they had been invited to participate in archaeological dig on an unidentified planet. They could not provide any details to their son or others, as the project was highly classified. It is not known if they ever completed the assignment.
In 2287, his parents and their team were first reported dead and then reported captured by the Klingons. The Klingons claimed the archaeologists were looting and defiling sacred Klingon grounds. They are currently being held as political prisoners at an undisclosed location within the Klingon Empire. The Federation refuses to yield to the Klingons' conditions for a prisoner exchange.The Klingon High Council continues to demand the release all those captured from the Massacre of Narroon for the return of Dr. Woo and Dr. Kematsopoulos and survivors of their team.
