Physical Appearance: Lieutenant Stewart is quite tall and
lean. He works out regularly and thus is muscular without being
muscle bound. His good looks have never seemed important to him and
their effect on the females around him seemingly goes unnoticed. He
does date infrequently but is more serious about his work and the
intricacies in the world of Intelligence gathering for Starfleet.
Personality: Laurence Stewart is quite a serious young man.
He is quiet although can get verbose when speaking about his love
for Starfleet or his family. His younger sister Sam is the one
member of his family that he feels totally comfortable with. His
father, a stern and silent man, has always strenuously objected
Laurence seeking a career in Starfleet. His mother, a lovely but
timid woman, keeps busy with her various women's clubs, gardening
and an almost obsessive love for reading. Sam is the only one who
seems to understand Laurence's need to explore, to go beyond the
confines of Terra and find out about the many universes around them.
They keep in touch with vids and visits whenever either gets the
chance to get away from their work. Sam is a pediatrician and loves
caring for the children with whom she comes in contact.
Other Pertinent Data: Laurence does enjoy hoisting a stout
now and again but he keeps his celebrations to a minimum. He enjoys
feeling in control and doesn't often let his guard down. Although
quiet by nature, Laurence does enjoy talking with his fellow
crewmembers and the people who work in Operations with him. He
doesn't have a lot of friends but those he does have he holds dear.
Laurence enjoys the unknown factor of his work and doesn't flinch at
going on high risk missions. Perhaps because of the nature of his
work, Laurence has held off from seeking to find someone to share
his life with. Although Sam is constantly urging him to loosen up a
bit and go out more, Laurence is quite happy with the way his life
History: Laurence Anthony Stewart was born on October 15,
2286 in the small town of Wigan, Lancashire, England. His is the
oldest child and thus to him fell the burden of fulfilling his
father's dreams. They began to fight over this almost from the first
words Laurence could speak. His love of space developed early in
spite of his father's attempts to push his interests elsewhere.
Edward Remington Stewart is proud of his family's history and
lineage and can trace his roots back to the time of Charlemagne.
This brush with nobility doesn't sit well with Laurence and he
prefers to keep that part of his heritage to himself. Although his
father is quite proud of his past, he does keep very closed mouth
about any current family history. In fact, the Stewarts live quite
an insular life in Wigan.
Laurence did well in school, graduating in the top five percent
of his class at Eton. When it came time to choose a university, he
resisted extreme pressure by his father to attend Oxford and instead
attended Cambridge where he again graduated at the top of his class.
With the world at his fingertips, Laurence almost caused a complete
break with his father when he choose not to pursue a career in
politics but instead applied for and was accepted by Starfleet
Upon graduation form the Academy; Laurence was assigned to the
U.S.S. Excalibur where he served happily until transferred to the
U.S.S. Phoenix in 2318. He is currently assigned to the Intelligence
Division under the command of Lieutenant Commander Spahn.
