December 2012’s Featured Bio is Marine Captain Michael Angelo Valentino of the Duronis II Embassy

valentinoMarine Captain Michael Angelo Valentino of the Duronis II Embassy trained with the elite Vulcan security ministry known as the V’Shar at the young age of 16. There he excelled thanks to both his eidetic memory and athletic prowess, and he honed both his skills in weaponry and martial arts as well as his tactical cunning. Yet while the Vulcans are renowned for their reserved passion, Valentino hasn’t let their philosophy of emotional suppression extend to his romantic aspirations. This charming playboy from Sicily has attained a list of conquests nearly as long as his list of honors and achievements. Still, he’s not a cold heartbreaker, and he holds a strong sense of duty and doing what’s right… at least what he thinks is right!
Marine Captain Valentino’s bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the month of December. As always, you can find out more about the contest at its wiki page or in its forum. Be sure to drop by and submit your own nominations for the next round!

Lower Decks: Marine Captain Michael Valentino

In this edition of Lower Decks, we talk with Marine Captain Michael Valentino and his writer about the current assignment for the character and where he plans to go. Serving aboard the USS Thunder in their Marine contingent, Michael has a lot to strive for in the coming years. Let’s take a look.

Michael Valentino (also the name for his character), a 23 year old Londoner working as a radiologist, has always had a love for the Trek. Like most of the younger generation of simmers, his captivation was brought on by TNG and Voyager. He commented that  “… [I] Love the stories, the morals and the humanity. My favorite episode from TNG is probably “Inner Light”. And like most of us, watching the series’ unfold on television just wasn’t enough. PBEM roleplay was the next course of action, leading him to UFOP:SB118. Upon enrolling, there had to be an inspiration that could breathe life into his character. As his name would suggest, he chose to model the character after himself, giving him unchained ability when it came to fleshing out the character. Training didn’t prove to be much of a challenge for the lad, as he had this to say when prompted about the challenges of training: “Nothing specific. The staff were excellent in their support and tutoring and always encouraging. A credit!”
