|Hidalgo Dorchester was born on the 22 of Oct 2359 in the city of Emerald Valley on the home-world of the Equestrians. He was the firstborn son of Dr. Ronin Dorchester and Dr. Hillary Dorchester, both of whom were renowned medical doctors. Hidalgo very much looked up to his parents and as a child would often proclaim he wanted to follow in their footsteps. Young Hidalgo lived a life that every child could dream of, descendant of the Dorchester Herd which had been around for nearly 2 millennia. He was an only child and his parents were prone to spoiling him slightly from time to time. Hidalgo cherished these times, developing a close and intimate bond with his family.
The planet Hidalgo grew up on, Equestira, is the 6th planet circling the blue giant star called Equus. It has 2 moons which are called Shire and Chestnut. Chestnut got its name from the rich iron-atmosphere that causes it to shimmer red like the planet Mars in the Sol-system. Shire was the name of the old herd-leaders of the ancient times. Equestria is 23.745km in diameter and has 9 continents as well as deep violet/blue oceans. The vegetation is lush and full of many different variations of bushes, trees and flowers. The animal life is abundant as it is safe from being hunted. All Equestrians are vegetarians, consuming many of the different plants and vegetables that can be found to grow on their planet. Due to the very dense, liquid iron core, the planet has a strong gravitational field with a force of 3.3x the Earth standard. The atmosphere is more dense as well which causes sounds to travel farther. Nature is well maintained on the planet and under full control of the orbital weather satellites. Before that system was installed the storms could have been deadly strong and reached wind-speeds up to 320kph. As a child Hidalgo was very prone to get into trouble as he explored the planet upon which he was raised.
However as Hidalgo grew, he yearned to explore to seek out the unknown. Hidalgo attended all the best schools learning and absorbing a wide variety of information. As a child, he went to a private school in the town of his birth, receiving a solid education and graduating in the upper end of his class. He was always eager to learn and widen his horizons, a curiosity which his teachers encouraged. Despite the isolated nature of the Equestrian culture, young Dorchester's teachers encouraged him to leave the home-world and seek adventures and knowledge out among the stars. This was unusual as his species had given up space travel many centuries ago and only on very rare occasion does a starship stop by at his home-world. He managed to persuade his parents to let him go, and he set off alone, well equipped with a big chunk of the family fortune to provide for him on his travels.
As he set off on his journeys, Hidalgo noticed that the gravitational pull in many of the surrounding planets he visited was quite different from that of his home-world. As such in order to accommodate for the difference, he purchased a portable personal gravity field. Equestria has a gravitation pull that is a 3.3x higher than that of Pinastri as well as most other planets and ships within the Quadrant. One benefit of the increased gravitational field upon his planet was the strong upper body he posed which allows him the ability to sustain higher stress than the normal humanoids. Due to the unique challenges and differences in his physiology, Hidalgo wears a personal gravitational field to provide the necessary 3.3 g's for him. This is a preventative measure, avoiding the many missteps that could occur due to his body overcompensating in the 1g environment.
After leaving Equestria, Hidalgo made his way to the Pinastri system where he joined the UFS Academy to study medicine and intelligence. It was difficult for him to fit in with the other cadets due to his stature. He was taller, 4-6 times larger than the other cadets, and mostly speaks with body language, a trait picked up from his ancestors before him. During his free-time Hidalgo likes to train his body in the gym or on the track. He especially enjoys deactivating his graviton generator from time to time showing what his 3.3g body is able to accomplish in the light gravitational pull that Pinastri is providing. It took him awhile to using words rather than gestures to communicate.
Hidalgo had a hard time fitting in at the beginning. He looked very similar to a species called the "horse" on Earth a fact the other cadets would not let him forget as they played practical jokes on him. These practical jokes ranged from filling his quarters up with straw and hay to leaving him a bowl of oats on his desk. The problems were not eased by the fact that Hidalgo rarely used the spoken word but the body language he was accustomed to from his home-world. He had difficulties adjusting during the first two years at the Academy. He had to listen to the others making fun of him, calling him names and avoiding him wherever they could. The fact that he nickered and whinnied from time to time in a conversation or class as part of his way of communicating did not really help either. As it drew more negative feedback and attention towards him. It was not until after the second semester in his third year that he had finally managed to use the spoken language of the humans so that he could much easier communicate with fellow cadets and the Professors and Instructors at the Academy. Though it took him awhile he did eventually adjust, accumulating to his settings.
Hidalgo graduated with a major in Intelligence studies, minoring in medical which lead him to join the UFS Intelligence Branch right after graduation. Though he was not in that profession for long, he had a nice career moving swiftly to the position of Department Director of the ACE. His duties were varied ranging from being responsible for the duties of analyzing incoming intelligence reports to filtering them in order to put it into a big picture for UFS Command. Quickly he advanced to the position of Deputy Director of the Internal Affairs Division in Intelligence. To supplement his reach he also began to teach several classes. Intel was his calling...teaching his passion. And this passion was what caused him to leave the intelligence field after some time to become a Professor at the Academy. Only days after being appointed to the Academy he took the position of Deputy Director of the Simulator Training Division. And not long after that he got awarded with the position of Director of the same division. He still holds that job and works closely with his Deputy and Staff to provide solid foundation for the education of UFS Cadets.
Another love of his is flying and most of the money his family gave him when he left his home-world was used to buy numerous ships such as Runabouts and several other shuttles, in fact even a Yacht can be found in his little shipyard. Hidalgo earned his piloting license while he was at the UFS Academy and is able to fly numerous different ships. In addition to enjoying flying he also likes to shoot targets at the range. Hidalgo finds this a therapeutic way to release stress as well as hone skills for whatever use they may be. Dancing also is something that Hidalgo seems to find quite important to his personal makeup. On Equestria this is a very important part of the culture as it's practiced on a near daily base. Little occasions are enough to dance on his planet. So he really enjoys it when he finds someone who is willing to dance with him at a club or a bar when he goes out.
Hidalgo endeavors to be friends with those around him. He is there for his colleagues and tries to help them as much as possible. This aspect of his personality was what got him appointed as the Alpha Cadet Company Second Officer. As he continued to grow in his service within Starfleet he was eventually promoted to the position of Commanding Officer of that Company, a position which he still holds today. It is no small surprise that most of his free time is spent with his cadets doing some small task or other.
A problem for Hidalgo from time to time is the highly active metabolism that he has. He can not stand to be without solid, vegetarian protein for more then 36 hour and required enormous amounts of liquids every day. He needs between 7 and 8 gallons every 24 hours in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One thing that always amuses humans and most other species is that he does react to certain drinks as most others react to Alcohol. Amusingly enough, Hidalgo can get drunk by drinking too much Earl Grey as an example. Another thing which makes him uncomfortable from time to time is the temperature outside of his home-planet. Hidalgo is used to an average temperature of 14 degree celsius and humans prefer it to be much warmer than that. It is for this reason that he is usually rather sparsely dressed when off duty, most commonly attired in shirts at the club many times. His quarters, office and condo are usually cooled down to the 14 degree Celsius allowing him a much greater comfort level. When visitors do stop by he does take care to adjust the temperature in order to make them feel more comfortable.
Hidalgo has really enjoyed his time thus far within United Federation Starfleet and looks forward to continuing his service there, looking upward, moving forward, serving others.
