Other Family A direct descendant of 20th century physicist Freeman Dyson from whom the Dyson Sphere concept was first proposed on Earth. Structures loosely fitting the theory proposed by Dyson were found to actually exist by Starfleet in 2294. The U.S.S. Jenolan crashed into such a structure which remained almost invisible against the darkness of space. That structure was later named the Jenolan Dyson Sphere. The U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) revisited the Dyson Sphere in 2369.

Personal History Born in Paradise, Michigan near the shores of Lake Superior, Therin was raised in a somewhat rural setting. He was privately educated until he attended the Starfleet Academy School of Engineering at age eighteen. He and his brother, Chatam, spent countless hours playing along the beaches and boating along the cost of Lake Superior as children. When Chatam was eleven, he suffered an accident leaving his right arm paralyzed. Doctors employed bionics and an exoskeletal framework to restore mobility in Chatam's arm. The device would often fail leaving Chatam in pain or feeling inadequate. It was at this time that Therin developed his interest in mechanical engineering. At age fifteen, Therin redesigned his brothers exoskeleton to operate more efficiently.
