Life and careerEdit
Neumann entered Starfleet Academy in 2374, one of the first recruits to join after the Federation Civil War. His roommate and best friend at the Academy was Andrew Rice, and he was romantically involved with Joy Sleeman. Neumann graduated in 2378 and, along with Rice, immediately entered the SEAL training program. Lt. Commander Joshua Gorman was one of their instructors, and requested that they be assigned to his team.
His first extended deployment began when Gorman's team joined the crew of the USS Pendragon in early 2379. Michael distinguished himself in several engagements, and proved his worth as an infiltration specialist.
