Physical Description The average intelligence officer, outwardly-unremarkable and undistinguished unless you scrutinize closely. His skin has a permanent light tan - a testament to the hot Barolian sun - and his hair is starting to get a few grey strands, which he jokingly prefers to think of it as "work-induced highlights." As a consequence - he'd say "tribute" - of service in the Starfleet MACOs, he bears lingering aftereffects of various injuries received in the course of duty. The most notable of these is a prescribed eyepatch for use in low-light conditions: without it, he sometimes sees as if a 'shroud' has been dropped over his right eye.

Personality & Traits

General Overview The lieutenant commander is a professional, whose life has been greatly colored by experience. An active-duty MACO seconded to Starfleet Intelligence from their ground-pounding cousins, externally he comes across as cold, standoffish, and sometimes cynical and jaded. These traits are tolerated because he’s also knowledgeable and experienced, particularly when it comes to operations - of the special forces variety - in Federation border sectors.

Only in recent months has he become a more personable individual who can be separately identified from a persona referred to as “the Ghost.” The reasons for this are many, but two key factors include a growing relationship with the station’s Chief Medical Officer and a desire for redemption from personal sins committed in the name of the Federation.
Strengths & Weaknesses His passion for his work is what drives him: Stacker has a good memory for facts, figures, and information long since forgotten by others, earning him something of a reputation for a "mind like a steel trap." Outside of work and off duty he's not in his element - something that he's acutely aware of. For this reason he prefers the quieter areas of the station. The crush of humanity and various alien species simply does not agree with him.
Ambitions Stacker differs from his grey-collared peers in aspiring to not make rank or command level: many years of service has made him acutely aware of his experience and capabilities at field-level operations. In truth, if he had his say, a starbase's chief intelligence officer is the highest position he would aspire to - mostly because even at that level, he can still slip out into the field without raising too many eyebrows.
Hobbies & Interests Stacker has more-than-passing familiarity and interest in small-craft flight operations, field operations, and heavy weapons - necessary outgrowths of his MACO background - which he attempts to keep in practice despite being increasingly relegated to positions away from the field. He's often found most comfortable and relaxed when engaged in projects that keep his hands busy, but mind on semi-autopilot (such as weapon maintenance).

Personal History James Stacker was born in 2384, the only child of botanists Marie Kent and Dennis Stacker of Barolia. He enlisted in the Starfleet Military Assault Command Operations (MACOs) at the age of 25, graduating nine months later as a rifleman. Postings soon followed to Viery and Operations Groups 5 and 21, during which time aptitude for intelligence and special operations came to light.

His commissioning as a Lieutenant (j.g.), in 2414, was subsequently followed by a continuation of his two-year stay on Quantico with assignment to the MACO’s Intelligence Training Program. Graduation came in 2415, followed by reassignment to Operations Group 21 - by that time stationed at Starbase 672: Hephaestus. He served with notable distinction before reassignment to Starbase 1170: Cold Station Theta.
