Born in Malaysia, Earth, Raj Blueheart was a voracious reader from a young age, and he dived into his studies during his childhood on Earth and later Luna, in part to escape the bullying of his fellow classmates. He attended medical school and worked as a physician with the Earth government as well as participated in various volunteer missions to refugee colonies and war-torn areas before entering Starfleet in 2382.
Since his graduation from the Academy in 2386, Raj served first as a doctor before then taking on the role of counselor and executive officer, all while aboard the USS Discovery-B and her successor the USS Discovery-C. After his commanding officer Captain Tyr Waltas retired in 2391, Raj assumed command of the Discovery briefly before being assigned as commanding officer of the USS Atlantis. A man of eclectic tastes, the Atlantis‘s captain enjoys everything from Klingon opera to 1980s Earth pop-rock and “big hair” bands.
Congratulations to Captain Blueheart! His bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the month of January. This month, our featured nominee belongs to Lieutenant Rendal Rennyn, also of the USS Atlantis.
