Background History

Born on Betazed to one of the 'Great Houses', Voith struggled to overcome the demands of his privileged upbringing, before electing to join Starfleet when he came of age.
the unedited tale - Voith ran away and joined up on the first day he could. Voith had for the first time in his life a taste of freedom.

Starfleet Career

Starbase 4

On Stardate 39322.2, Lieutenant Junior Grade Voith Tal distinguished himself by actions above and beyond the call of duty, while serving as a Medical Technician on Starbase 4 protected both a group of Federation Councillors and visiting ambassadors from a terrorist attack by explosively releasing an airlock. This action sent the Lieutenant, the terrorists, and the tri-cobalt device they had planned to use into vacuum, not only saving the station but also ensuring planned peace negations could take place. His display of both extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty were deemed in keeping with the highest standards of military service and reflect great credit upon him, Starfleet and the Federation. (Medal of Honour Citation.)

Personal Relationships

One of his great rivals in the fleet was 'Fighting' Jack Turner, his old roommate at the Academy - and the current Starfleet Martial Arts champion, as of 2365.
