|Personal History||Born in 2360 aboard the USS Rowan, Ethan was the first child to George and Bethany Mackenzie. George his father was stationed aboard the USS Rowan as one of the ships engineers. His mother, Bethany was the ships botanist.
Ethan’s first four years of childhood were spent aboard the USS Rowan. Then his father George was promoted and re-assigned to the USS Grayson to server as the ships Chief Engineer.
In 2366, the family grew as his younger brother Matt was born aboard the USS Grayson. His mother took this opportunity to resign from Starfleet and be a stay at home mother. His father was in full support of her decision.
They remained on the USS Grayson for another 2 years until their family grew again. This time, his mother gave birth to a little girl. His parents decided that it would be best for them to move to Earth. His father put in a transfer and a few months later he was given the transfer to Earth to be a instructor at Starfleet Academy.
Their move to Earth was a welcome and a stable change for everyone. His mother was probably the one that was most overjoyed as their new house had enough of a yard for her to be able to garden.
They lived a normal life for a while until 2373 when the Dominion War broke out. His father was reassigned from Starfleet Academy to the USS Powell to serve as the Executive Officer. His parents decided that it would be best for them to remain on Earth. Hopefully away from any harm as his father left to fight in the war.
The change was hard for everyone but their spirits would be brightened up every evening when his father would contact them. It was usually short but it was what everyone at home needed. Then suddenly the transmissions stopped. A week or two went by with no contact. His mother attempted to get someone in Starfleet to tell her what was going on but the only thing that they would say is that they were in a communication black out. His mother began fearing the worse and sadly enough her fears became a reality when they received a transmission that the USS Powell had been lost with no survivors.
The news was heart breaking. His mother took it very hard. She sunk into a depression. Ethan was sad but he had to be strong for his mother, and his siblings. Ethan grew up quickly during his time. His mother was sad for a very long time and Ethan got his family thought it.
When Ethan enlisted in Starfleet his mother was very upset with him. She reflected back on how she lost his father because of Starfleet and didn’t want anything to happen to Ethan but she also knew that her son had made up his mind. After a while she became very supportive on his decision.
For the first few months at the Academy, Ethan was very much into his studies then he met Lumiya. She would become one of his best friends, and a lover for a short period of time but she did flip his world upside down as well. She showed him how to let loose and relax.
Ethan began pushing his studies aside and become somewhat of a wild child. He grew up with a lot of responsibilities. He didn’t get to enjoy things that a lot of other teenagers did and now it was his turn. There was a point in time when he didn’t know if he would even graduate from Starfleet Academy. There were several times when he almost got kicked out but eventually he figured it would a help of Professor Winter.
Ethan got his Starfleet Academy career back on track and graduated third in his class.
