Biographical Info


On Canceron, no one gives a frak. If you're born in the south- consider your ass lucky. You can live underground- make money and have a better than decent education to get the hell out. If you're born in the north. You're owned till the day you are born by the mines. Into this land of troublemakers was Judah Vicks born. Son of Harlan and Aquina Vicks, Judah would be the eldest- and the one to take on his father's sentence when he died. You see, if you're shit lucky enough to be assigned to Canceron, for your prison time- you're offspring are right out of luck. Specially, if you die before your term is up. Luckily for the Colonial Mining Conglomerate-this means having workers born and raised to replace the ones you lose, either to a prison fight gone wrong- or just the hard ass realities of mining tylium. His father was a miner and a driver, meaning he got to drive a truck along the subterranean mazes and old miner shafts that had been turned into roads, and halls for housing. Never say humanity is not resourceful.

Judah was already a child born into trouble, also add to the fact that it was believed his real father was an overseer..Well you can see how many fights the young man got his ass into. At an early age he showed an apptitude for repair work, and building, and when he wasn't in Colonial classes- he would tinker at home repairing broken applainces- or just taking them apart for parts. Shop, would be his most impressive class. Still, upon graduation, his father would come down to tin lung-and die. Leaving his son to take over the remainder of his time on the line. However this would be short lived, as soon enough young Judah found himself arrested on charges of assaulting an officer, and theft of Colonial goods.

Some say it was self defense- others say Vicks just had bad blood in him. However-there was one thing that could save his ass from the hangman's noose and a life in the mines.

That was the Colonial Navy.

Somehow Judah managed to qualify for the "Freedom Points" program, and enlisted- working so he could effectively negate his own time, as well as his father's so as to get his family out of that shit hole.

After Basic Judah was placed with an Escort Carrier- the Evening Sun and set to work in the Engineering department, ideally as a Mechanical technician. During his career in on the Sun, Vicks managed to be promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class, as well as became certified in the Electrical maitenance as well-though his strength clearly laid in his mechanic work- and with Damage control. However two years or so before Warday the PO would be caught in a scheme so as to route out an element of the perceived Black market working on the ship. As such, He was found guilty, Court Marshalled, and processed. In the end he would be demoted to Petty Officer 2nd Class, and sent to Ft. Flagg which was stationed off of Gemenon to serve out his two year term, before he would be allowed to be dishonorably discharged-and summarily sent back to Canceron.

He was just short of completing his points.

Warday changed those plans.

In an effort to be able to produce, let alone maintain the Colonial Armed forces- Ft. Flagg was ordered by the Warden to press those prisoners not seen as a danger into service to work off their sentence and dfefend the human race. The rest would be left to rot. With that the Prison Transport took about 250 Prisoners off to the Space Station Idi, where they were in turn dolled out amongst the ships still surviving. Vicks was transferred to the frigate- Saratoga and from there taken and dropped off at Ragnar Anchorage to aid in the production and maintenance there.

Or so that was the plan. Having been the guest of the Galactica, and Cylons previous-the landing crew of the 'toga found little to nothing left in the way of armaments. Still the smaller crew sent in to secure and scavenge was told to simply do just that so as to scrape the barrel. However they would end up being marooned there. Due to some adverse atmospheric conditions, it was either leave around five people to their probable slow death, or destroy the ship in the tow-They chose to maroon. Besides, who would miss five criminals anyway?
