Personal History Anders was born in Oslo, Norway on October 7th 2231. His father was assigned as a civilian maintenance engineer to the Starfleet Outpost and his Mother at the time was a Starfleet Security Officer assigned to the facility. He was the yougnest of his siblings with his sister Helga bein 2 years older than him and his brother being 4 years younger. Due to the nature of his parents careers the family moved around an awful lot but they had a permanent home in Oslo just outside the city.

His education was fairly standard with above average grades in most subjects, though his history sports subjects were some of the highest in his class.

With the approval of his parents Anders enrolled into Starfleet Academy in 2249 choosing to follow in the path of his mother and selecting Security and Tactical studies. From that point on he knew that this was what he wanted to do, he excelled in small unit based tactics and energy weapon courses though his history and alien cultural studies were just as good. Anders also undertook classes in criminal investigation. And by 2353 he finished in the top 10 of his class with suitable grades and skills. Though his instructors noted that whilst he was a team player and shrewd investigator he often came into conflict with the less than focused of his peers.

He worked on a significant number of cases and was seriously injured whilst in the process of trying to apprehend a Tellarite Serial Killer, suffering severe stab wounds. Followed by rehabilitation unti 2258.

Following a long stint recovering and working a light case load it soon became apparent that whilst he enjoyed the active side of things he did not enjoy desk work. With a promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade he applied for a transfer to a Starship posting.

Reassigned to the USS Callisto as her Security Chief, Anders rediscovered his love of deep sapce. Using his time on the Newton type Ship to work on his command skills, he was occasionally assigned as the Nightshift commanding officer for extra experience.

By 2261 Annders took the opportunity to serve on the Constitution Class, USS Victory as her Security Chief with a promotion to full Lieutenant. His time on the Victory led him to come face to face with species such as the Gorn, Naussicans and even the Klingons.
