Has noted, over the years, an increase in diagnoses at least peripherally caused by the weather manipulation network and the effects of underlying (masked but not remedied) global changes due to warp corridor disruptions and the presence of local subspace rifts.

Personal History Saram is from Hekaras II, a world that was ravaged by the effects of warp drive. He saw friends and family taken away from the subspace after effects. This led him to study warp technology from a very young age.

Saram is slightly autistic, edging toward asperber's syndrome. This allows him incredible focus but also makes it difficult for him to connect socially in ways that are always appropriate. He used this focus to build models and new designs in his young mind that he was only able to test much later in life.

In school, Saram did not immediately find success. Teachers failed him. They failed to understand him or to reach him. In later schooling the right teachers broke through that shell and helped Saram become the brilliant theoretical engineer he would become.

He graduated from the Academy of Hekaras with a degree in Engineering and was recommended for a fellowship at the Daystrom Institute. After his time at Daystrom he was granted an associate professorship and research fellowship at the Cochrane Institute.

The engineer joined Starfleet's accelerated officer candicacy school and was assigned to the the USS Matador, giving him the unique opportunity to study the warp configuration of the Defiant class now seemingly operating everywhere in the alpha quadrant and gamma quadrant. He was shortly promoted to Chief Engineer where he performed his duty until transfer to the USS Tranquility.

Known to very few, he had grown very weary of life aboard a battleship and had used his contacts at Daystrom and Cochrane to secure the transfer. The idea of a starship not owned entirely by Starfleet fascinates him. He hopes it will lead to less violence and more time to both study his designwork and explore.
