Devoe was brought up on Utopia Yards were his parents were stationed. While there he attended the local Schools and joined the Federation Civil Space Patrol Cadet Program during his freshman year in High School. While there he earned his Shuttle Pilots license.

While he didn’t pass the entrance exam the first time, Tom entered a near by Starfleet Prep School in San Francisco. After which he passed the exam on the second try the following year.

Personal History and Origin:

Devoe’s early childhood was at a Starship construction facility at Utopia Yards where his parents were stationed. His father is a Starship Construction Manager, and his mother an Electrical and Piping Designer for a variety of ships. From this he was given a unique perspective of how starships were designed and built. He worked many summers at the yards learning Astronautics and Warp theory. He was more interested in how and why starships worked. He hoped that this would aid him in learning how to be a starship Captain.

When Tom was a teenager he met a Klingon School mate whom taught him some of the Klingon martial arts. When Tom was old enough he applied to Starfleet Academy, while he didn’t make the cut off the first time, it only made him more determined. He then spent some time at a Starfleet preparatory school and passed the following year with flying colors. As Devoe is a sports car hot rod buff he continued as a weekend warrior flying shuttlecraft on the side. Tom would refer to this as a need for speed that often worried his parents to this day.

Devoe’s Political Science instructor CDR. Pease, whom also taught Martial Arts at the academy, Tom decided to serve under him as a junior Martial Arts Instructor. Since, he studied Jukido jujitsu and Sanzyuru Karate since he was 8 years old. He also holds a Nidan 2nd degree black belt in both systems, and has a Masters of Weapons certification from this.

Devoe graduated in the upper 10% of his class, with honors. Devoe studied in the Flight Control Branch and minored in Tactical operations. He also took a variety of engineering Electives and challenged the exams at the academy.

Since Tom was interested in learning starship command he studied starship operations and minored in starship tactics.

Omega on a dime sized point to avoid a devastating blow that would have crippled his ship, during a misunderstanding with a Cardassian Destroyer.
