Personal History
James "Jimmy" Novak was an average person, born on July 10, 2345. Jimmy was a devout man with a kind heart. At the age of eighteen he left for Starfleet Academy. While at the Academy he met a woman Amelia who would become his wife and the mother to their daughter they were going to name Claire. He loved his wife and daughter deeply and was willing to make sacrifices in order to keep them safe. Jimmy was known to incorporate religious practices into his daily life such as insisting he and the family say prayers before their meals. His wife who was two years ahead of him was on the Princeton as an Ensign when it destroyed by the Borg at Wolf 359 a mere two days before she was scheduled to leave the ship for her maternity leave. The loss of his wife and child affected Jimmy's beliefs deeply. Strangely enough his grades did not suffer during his senior year. After his post graduation leave he was assigned to the Wellington. When the Intrepid class Lincoln was launched in mid 2371 he transferred to be the Assistant Chief Operations Officer. In 2375 he transferred to the Raptor. While on the Raptor Jimmy became friends with Commander Dax the ship's Second Officer. It was at Dax's recommendation that Jimmy be brought about Odyssey to be the Second Officer when he was passed over for the slot on Raptor.
