Flight from the Romulan Star EmpireEdit
At age 16, Jinal's father was under orders by the senator for smuggle his family across the Neutral Zone to warn the Federation of massive attacks on Romulan colonies. The Senate had decided to end the Empire's isolationism in response. En route, the third party freighter was attacked by the Tal Shiar. His parents were murdered. He was rescued by Starfleet.
Unfortunately, Jinal had been raised to not trust the Federation. So instead of telling the truth of his ordeal, he manufactured a lie of being a Vulcan. A lie he continued when he applied to Starfleet Academy.
Jinal joined Starfleet out of hate of the Tal Shiar. It seemed the best way for vengeance. While there, his hatred subsided. He discovered Vulcans had a reputation for being good engineers, so he did what he thought was expected of him. In his second year, Nova Squadron attempted to cover up an accidental crash. He earned the honor of being named on the Commandant's List.
He learned how to maintain his Vulcan persona well before his first assignment to this Norway-class vessel. Captain Partic assigned him to engineering. In 2373, Jinal received the Jalhal Award for warp field studies and was promoted to Lieutenant junior grade.
