Personal History
A medical study into Gary Mitchell's family history found that several members of his immediate family, and distant ancestors going back six generations on his mother's side, both male and female, had esper-oriented abilities. One of his ancestors had an interest in "spiritual readings." His esper rating (091), aperception quotient (20/104), Duke-Heidelburg quotient (261), and general knowledge quotient (679532-112) were well above average in all categories. Growing up, it was found he displayed unusual skill at "guessing games" – performing much better than chance would allow. He also had a grade school interest in magic tricks.

A young Gary Mitchell met James T. Kirk in 2250, and the two became fast friends following Mitchell's admission into Starfleet Academy in the late 2250s. Cadet Mitchell was a student in Lieutenant Kirk's class. He had been warned by upperclassmen, "You either think or sink." Mitchell, in 2265, remembered Kirk as "a stack of books with legs." In an attempt to divert his friend's attentions and make the class easier to get through, Mitchell set Kirk up with a "little blonde lab technician", whom Kirk almost married. In the mid-23rd century, during a mission to Deneb IV, Gary Mitchell, with his friend James T. Kirk, was tested for his ability at telepathy. Mitchell had a marked ability of sensing telepathic communication used by the inhabitants of that planet. In at least three cases, he was capable of carrying long telepathic communication with selected inhabitants, scoring eighty percent or higher on comprehension. One night, while in telepathic communication with a female inhabitant, Mitchell suffered from after-effects that lasted for a while. Kirk later stated he'd been worried about Mitchell ever since that night. As a pun, Mitchell referred to the female he had been in contact with as a "nova." Also during his lifetime he visited a certain planet multiple times, and whenever he visited there he always favored Kaferian apples. In the 2260s, upon receiving his first command, Kirk asked Mitchell to join him aboard that ship. Kirk and Mitchell took part in a mission to planet Dimorus, where they encountered sentient "rodent things" that shot poisonous darts. Mitchell took one of the darts meant for Kirk, saving Kirk's life but nearly dying himself. Gary took a Leave of Absence before the mission to the galactic barrier that lasted over a year. He returned in 2267 just in time for the Enterprise's encounter with the planet killer and getting thrown into the year 2380. After arriving in 2380 Gary was officially made the ship's Second Officer.
