Dr. Kaleiman Burast

General Information

Homeworld: Takara
Species: Takaran
Gender: Male
Date of Birth: 2325 (63 years old)
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 260 lbs
Hair Color: Brown/Blue/Grey
Eyes Color: Green
Political Affiliation: Starfleet
Assignment: Science
Billet: USS Fenris

Physical Description

Although somewhat stocky for a Takaran, Burast is by no means heavy set. His weight is due to his body being far more dense than that of other species. His hair stands out in a somewhat unruly mane, the mark of a true scientist unconcerned with personal appearance. He can therefore often be found eschewing the Starfleet uniform in favor of more practical (in his view) civilian research garments, causing no end of friction with superior officers.

Psychological Profile

Dr. Burast's extensive research and publication history leaves him with a perhaps deserved feeling of superiority in matters pertaining to science, but in other subjects he can become irritated when others appears to be more informed on the matter. His solution is usually to learn as much as he can to surpass the others' knowledge, or dismiss their area of expertise as irrelevant. Rank and orders, spit and polish, and procedure are asinine annoyances to his way of thinking, and he ignores or flaunts when necessary without a second thought. Needless to say, this creates conflict in a technical, highly specialized organization like Starfleet, but the quality of his research products is usually enough to mitigate such concerns.

Federation Standard, Takaran


Born on the (at the time) non-Federation member world of Takara, Kaleiman Burast was always fascinated by the few aliens who stopped by his planet. The few offworlders he encountered eventually increased as his planet became less shut off from the outside galaxy, but he still made his life goal the study of comparing alien physiology. Effortlessly negotiating the morass of Takaran academia, Burast made a name for himself in the field of his choosing, and when Takara joined the Federation he accepted a research position on Earth. Attempts at a teaching position were not successful due to "cultural differences."

After a prestigious stint at the Federation's top Xenobiology labs, Dr. Burast felt a sudden and inexplicable urge to get outside the ivory tower of academia and do some genuine field research. He finally took Starfleet Science up on on its long-standing offer of a departmental position, with the caveat that he be aboard a starship likely to encounter new phenomenon. After gritting his teeth through supplementary officer's training, he was given a brevet rank and assigned to the USS Fenris. His colleagues were equal parts disdainful and envious, and Dr. Burast couldn't be more pleased at that.
