Personal History Mitchell grew up with his adoptive parents aboard Trader’s Luck, a small trading ship that wandered the distant space lanes of Federation Space. His mom and dad were technically two men but he never knew anything different and he loved them all the same. The story they told him was that their ship came across a drifting cargo hauler and once they had boarded they discovered that everyone was dead except for Mitchell who wasn’t more than a few months old and was small enough to fit into a stasis pod used for long distance hauling of perishable goods, the pod saved his life.

Mitchell was taken in and and grew up on the Traders Luck which also served as a transport ship for travelers in need of a lift from one Station or Planet to another. So his formative years were spent around just about every alien species in the sector as well as a large assortment of people from all walks of life; Scoundrels, thieves, criminals, people down on their luck, people running from something, some people running to something. By the time he was in his mid teens not only could he speak half a dozen different languages but he was also the best poker player on the ship and the best pilot. His father Pete was the one who taught him to fly, taught him to feel the ship, taught him to use his instincts and he was also the one who convinced him to join Starfleet.

One of the hardest days of John Mitchell’s life was when his parents dropped him off at flight school. He didn’t know it at the time, but it would be the last time he ever saw his parents. A year later the Traders Luck was attacked and destroyed by a Klingon warship during the war.

Until this point in his life Mitchell had been a model student, afterwards his flying became much more 'by the seat of your pants'. His instructors saw real genius in his abilities, but also noted that he had a tendency to be reckless and dangerous. Which he proved several times during flight school, once by clipping a Vulcan Diplomats ship as he tried to perform a close level fly by over its bridge and subsequently crashing into the hangar bay upon landing.

Nonetheless, Starfleet was short on pilots during the Klingon War and he was graduated anyways. Mitchell really excelled during the war, his file has several commendations for bravery but it also has several citations for disorderly conduct as well as one for disobeying orders and going off mission when he ignored his primary orders and went off mission to save an ambushed Marine Recon Unit on Sinbad IV. His actions resulted in saving the lives of 14 Marines so he was never formally punished. He was also never formally recognized for his actions.

After the war, Mitchell was assigned to the USS Galahad where he continued his path of self destruction. Without an enemy to fight, he turned on himself and began drinking heavily which lead to a demotion in rank and an affair with a senior officer. He was shortly transferred to Visek Nor Station where it was assumed he wouldn't get into any more trouble.

Several months after his arrival he volunteered to assist the USS Georgetown in destroying a space creature before it threatened the station. During the mission his actions resulted in severe injury to two other pilots and he was summarily court martialed. After a lengthy process he was finally offered a plea deal which he accepted and was reduced in rank once again.
