Born in 2332, he is a distant cousin of Admiral William Ross. The child of two university professors, he underwent genetic resequencing on Adigeon Prime. Hiding his enhanced intelligence, strength, and reflexes, he entered Starfleet Academy and graduated at the top of his class.
His first command was the USS Devereaux. He lead the Devereaux through the Federation-Cardassian War, during which he saved most of the crew when the ship was destroyed by a Galor-class ship in 2365. He taught at Starfleet Academy for several years until he was given command of the USS Benton in 2372. A year later, he was in command of the entire 219th Tactical Wing. At the defense of Andoria, he made a suicide run on a Jem'Hadar carrier to open a hole in the enemy lines.
In his spare time, Captain Ross enjoys studying languages, playing parrises squares, and holonovels of human historical events. He also collects 20th and 21st century toys. (LUG RPG: The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon).
