Personal History Born in Holles Street Maternity Hospital, Dublin in 2341. He grew up in the Liberties the third of four children - one brother, Maurice (the youngest) and two sisters, Jo (the eldest) and Una. When Andy was 6, Una died of xenopolycythemia - a blood disease that took her within a year.

However, Andy's childhood was a good one, and though he mourned his sister's passing, he was a happy child who did well in school.

Growing up, he worked in his parent's pub, called 'Kennedy's', although that was not the first pub in Dublin to bear that name.

When he was 11, his aunt Brigid and uncle Patrick took him to San Francisco with his cousin Joseph. It was a trip he never forgot. He saw the impressive sprawl of Starfleet Academy and the view of Earth Spacedock in the sky filled him with the desire to join Starfleet.

When he was 18, Andrew enrolled into the Academy. He would do well - he wasn't brilliant, but he was very good at tactical analysis and strategy. He graduated in 2363, eight in his class. He took a further two years studying for his postgrad; Advanced Tactical Training. He took the foundation course for Command and control, when a posting came up for the U.S.S Boston, which he decided to take. He had, he figured, had enough of academia. For now. He still continues his studies in pursuance of his dreams to become a captain one day.
