Jake was born into a Starfleet family and was expected to become a NCO
like his father and be able to take care of the family. From an early age
Jake knew that he wanted to be something that any other members of his
family were not.  


He has gained the attention of several top officers because of his
dutiful actions. He has been determined in action, decisive, and able
bodied. He has been an asset to his former CO's. He has three
disciplinary reports in his personnel file from his early years as an
officer in altercations with other officers, none in the last five years.

However, he was demoted recently for a prime directive violation, for
destroying stolen subspace weapons in view of a pre-warp society.
Mitigating circumstances (destruction of the weapons in sight of the
citizens saved their lives) resulted in his penalty for the violation
being a rank reduction from Lt. Commander to Lieutenant.


Discipline Notes:

I recommend that Mister Tate  be given a through physical and mental
examination before taking on another assignment. He plainly disregarded
starfleet's instructions for his assignment to the IKV Kahless. His
orders were to serve as Executive Officer and as Federation Observer.
If he ever is to function he must learn the chain of command exists on
situations such as this.

Captain Michael Donald
Klingon Exchange Officer Program Director


Writers Guide:

 Jacob Tate isn't one to allow others to be placed into danger. He also
isn't one to mingle in crowds as he knows there could always be someone
with a grudge. Tate has been around long enough, and done enough
intelligence work, to know, he has angered many people in the galaxy. 
People who might not know where he is but would be happy to kill him on
sight. So Jake Tate can be reluctant to give someone his trust,
especially away from the security of a starship, anywhere where there is
a non-Starfleet presence worth mentioning. He can be very secretive and
quiet among collegues. Well trained in hand to hand combat, he won't look
for a fight, in fact, has a low opinion of officers that do, and won't
throw the first punch, won't provoke someone to throw the first punch, or
let himself be provoked into doing so.  But if someone is dumb enough to
come at him, he will likely lay them out. Don't mess with him.... It
would be a better idea to be his friend then his enemy.
