Personal History The fourth of nine children Cady was born and raised on Asawompset (which he calls the Asawomphole of the Federation but you'd better not say that!). His parents encouraged him to get as much education as he could stuff into his big brain which he did.
Service Record After graduating with honors from Star Fleet Academy he was posted to be a Counselor at Starbase 122. Eighteen months in he was "poached" by the Captain of the USS Potemkin who had lost a good portion of his crew in a battle with a previously unknown alien species. He did his job well but frequently clashed with the Captain who Cady considered to be overly reckless and lacking in respect and concern for his crew. Eventually Captain Kilpatrick (called Kill-crewmen by those unlucky enough to sever under him) got tired of fighting with his Counselor so he was fobbed off on the Miranda Class USS Don Quixote where he served as Chief Medical Officer and Ship's Counselor. When the Don Quixote was being retired he was transferred to the Sovereign. He was busted down to Ensign by Captain Kilpatrick but promoted back to Lieutenant by Captain Knox.
