Personal History Felipe was found as a child in an escape pod that entered Federation territory from unclaimed space. He had been alone for several days and was nearly starved to death. Eventually he was brought to Earth, where he was adopted by Antonio and Lucretia Valenciano, Spanish farmers who raise Andalusian horses. Felipe thinks of himself as a true Spaniard, preferring late dinners, good company and dancing. He has always been grateful for the help he received, and devoted his life to helping others as a counselor.

After completing his Psychology education, including semesters on Vulcan and Betazed, he took a year off to decide how best to apply his skills, finally deciding on Starfleet, as they were the ones who found him. Although he is in his thirties and educated, he is a bit immature while off-duty. He would still be considered an adolescent among his native peoples.
Service Record Unknown. I’d hope to start at a higher rank as I’m a fairly experienced sinner. But open to discussion
