Personal History: Jason Anderson Beauvoir was born in Brittany, France, the eldest child of Simon Yves Beauvoir, an English literature professor and T'Lisa May Anderson, a Starfleet officer. Jason showed a natural aptitude for languages and by his seventh birthday had already learnt French, Breton (the Celtic language of Brittany), Latin, and was teaching himself Klingon(ese)and Cardassian.
Jason's mother as lover of Greek Mythology named her eldest son for her favourite Greek hero.
At school Jason's best subjects, besides languages were Chemistry and Biology.
At one point while he was on the U.S.S. Athena a phaser bank overloaded during a training exercise. Jason helped out as a stretcher-bearer ferrying the injured to the sick bay. Feeling guilty that he couldn't do more to help, after the situation was resolved, he underwent medical training in triage and first aid.
Later while serving on the U.S.S. Montana, he got to use the medical skills he had previously learnt. He was a member of an Away Team that was exploring a derelect spaceship when a young engineer fell 15 metres though a deck plate made brittle with age. Although he had been ordered by the Security Chief not to, Beauvoir with the help of two others, braved the unstable decking with ropes and pulleys. Jason allowed himself to be lowered down to the unfortunate engineer, he checked him for broken bones and internal injuries. Finding that he had only minor injuries, he treated what he could and had him hauled up while he waited below.
When he returned to the Montana he received both a commendation for bravery and a demotion for disobeying the orders of a superior officer. Taking the responsibility for disobeying the orders himself, meant that the other officers involved received no punishment.
Although he still believed he had done the right thing in the circumstances, he took the demotion with good grace, knowing that it was necessary to maintain discipline and the chain of command.
The stiff punishment he received for what was basically insubordination was due to the Montana 's CO, one Captain Graham Cresswell and his immense dislike of Beauvoir, based on the wild assumption that Jason thought himself intellectually and morally superior. The punishment was intended to put someone, who he saw as a young upstart in his place.
