== Personal History ==
Date of Birth: Approximately 20 years ealier than current date on Earth month/day October 31.
Place of Birth: On his parent’s freighter, when travelling from Vulcan to Earth. He was delivered by a hired Vulcan midwife who became his caretaker during his younger years. She was a Vulcan of about 125 years old.
Marital Status: Single
Siblings Name & Ages: None, his parent’s freighter, which was their life, was only large enough for the three of them.
Mother's Name: Mitrani
Father's Name: Adenkar
Parent's Status: Turak’s family is not part of the Vulcan race that follows the path of Surak and Kolinahr, instead they are known as "V'tosh ka'tur", or "Vulcans without Logic."
Pets: None, still not enough room on the freighter
Best Friend: A human female that he met while boating in Uncle Jonathan’s boat, Sarah Jones. Every time he was on Earth after that, they were inseparable. They plan to marry, but they also planned to go to and graduate from the Academy first.
Personal History: Turak’s father and mother had decided to be Vulcans without logic shortly after they were joined. His father, Adenkar, and mother, Mitrani, had both grown up with logic as part of their lives, but when they met some human visitors, their lives changed. They were interested in the emotion of being “happy” the most. They decided to explore it further, and when they decided that emotions mixed with logic was a way of life that they wanted for themselves, they broke with tradition. Due to this, his parents were rejected by their family’s and needed to find a way to leave the planet. Turak’s father and mother found jobs with a human named Jonathan Turner, who was from Iowa and delivering some rare art on Vulcan. Mr. Turner’s main business was hauling freight between earth and Vulcan, and when he hired Adenkar and Mitrani, he did so with the intent of retiring in less than 10 years. He was able to retire when Adenkar and Mitrani bought him out of his business. Shortly after, they had Turak and decided to school him themselves throughout their travels. Turak spent approximately 18 years in space going back and forth between Vulcan and Earth, learning to fly a freighter in the process.

Turak’s earlies memories include going to earth on his parent’s freighter and visiting “Uncle” Jonathan. As a retiree without a family of his own, Jonathan always looked forward to their visits. He would take Turak and his parents to all of the human cultural events, including: county fairs (he lived in “Nowhereville” Iowa!), hunting, fishing, boating, skiing, movies, etc. Turak has fond memories of this time in his childhood because life was very simple for him. He would complete lessons, which closely mirrored that of an earth child in curriculum, when in transit to their destination, and then enjoy his time on Earth. However, when the tables were turned and they were back on Vulcan, he felt as though he always had to be on his best behavior, which never seemed to be enough for anyone in the society. He always found himself counting down the days to the next departure.

As a teenager, he decided for himself that logic was not a bad thing, but that he couldn’t live life without emotion of any kind. When he was at Uncle Jonathan’s house on a particular occasion when he was 16, he met a young human female named Sarah Jones while boating in his Uncle’s antique mahogany Chris Craft. He thought his emotions had gone haywire until Uncle Jonathan explained to him what a “crush” was. He spent time with Sarah from then on, every time he was on earth. Around 18 years old (both being of the same age), they told their parents that they were dating seriously, but would not marry until Turak graduated the Academy.

Once at the Academy, Turak decided to major in Tactical and get a minor in engineering. It was a grueling 4 years that put his knowledge and ability to learn new information to the test. He made it through all classes with at least an “A,” and did so all the while having met his goal of being social. While he didn’t become some sort of a party animal, he did go to a party here and there, but mainly he spent time with a small group of friends. During this time, he and his friends learned to sail in San Francisco Bay, had Chess tournaments, and played computer games. Sarah also went to the Academy for engineering, so they spent as many waking moments together as possible. Turak and Sarah did finally graduate from the Academy and they were married the same day, now they are currently waiting Starship assignment.
