Personal History Ren was born on Betazed in 2366. For his early years, he had a normal childhood. However, when he was age seven, while playing with other children, he fell and hit his head on a rock. He suffered a traumatic injury to the part of his brain that controlled telepathy and empathy. The technology of modern medicine saved his life, but he was in a coma for 23 days.

As Ren grew older, he was closely monitored, but well into his teen years, it was clear that his psychic abilities would never develop. Because of this, he was never fully a part of Betazoid culture. It caused him to often be alienated by other children. The more cruel picked on him, calling Ren, Ferengi Boy. Oddly, it was discovered that he was immune to being read by telepaths or empaths. Other than extensive counseling sessions, his sister was always there for him. Though she couldn't fully understand what he was experiencing, she was the foundation of the support he needed to heal.

Ren had always loved laying on a blanket at night, looking at the stars and dreaming of visiting all of them. He made up stories and adventures in his mind, knowing that one day, he would see them for himself. This drew him to studying astronomy and science. Because he didn't have telepathy, when Ren was 18, his father encouraged him to apply to Starfleet Academy.

Ren traveled to the Starfleet facility on his home world and went through the application process. He passed, but there was concern that he was still emotionally dealing with the after affects of his injuries. More counseling sessions later, it was determined that Ren could join, but he was required to have regular counseling. All of this bothered him, but it was the price he had to pay to join.

At the academy, Ren expected to be picked on, but that didn't happen. Most races weren't telepathic, so he fit in, the first time that happened for him. His four years there were the happiest time of his life. Ren graduated with a general science degree, with a specialty in astrophysics.
Service Record Ren entered Starfleet Academy at age 18 in 2384, graduating in 2388 with a general science degree, and a specialty in astrophysics. He was assigned to the USS Grant as a science officer. During his time there, he was promoted to lieutenant jg. In 2396, the chief of science position became available on the USS Triton. Ren applied and was accepted, being promoted to full lieutenant.
