Joe was once again in the security office in his ongoing struggle to find able bodied new crewmen after the loss of several members of the security personell in the operation to rescue the captain. When he wasnt there he was ususally in holodeck training them or just working out. There was no hiding his well musceled body in the standard issue Star Fleet Uniforms but his body was not an issue of vanity, it's just that working out had been one of his early defense mechanisms in life a good way to avoid his father's constant disaproval and a good way to forget about the weird feelings he always had that were just not proper in his culture. Truth be told he really did enoy working out not just because it was his escape from the real world, but because it was a way to constantly punish himself for not being good enough, after all no pain no gain. He didnt think he had been ready to be C-sec, he still didn't, even temporarily, but he had been told he did a good job. In a way he had been greatful when the whole situation started because Commander Andross had just sent him to Sick Bay when it had begun, and as big and tough as he looked he dreaded needles. But more importantly he would have been forced to interact with more members of the crew, which he had been avoiding because he still felt like he didnt belong.He had gone to Star Fleet because his grandfather's dream had been for one of his children to go to Star Fleet which had never hapepned in his family because they were a long line of farmers in Colombia on the continent of South America on Earth, but when his only son died and his only daughter married Joe's father Edison that never happened. When the old man told him on his death bed of his lifelong desire he saw it as a way to make his granfather proud but even better to get away from his dad and get to a new enviroment and find out about himself. However, Star Fleet had truly been a challenge for him like nothing before had ever been. School had always come easy to him just like sports and the martial arts had ben easy, but Star Fleet was complelty different. He found himself spending every waking moment studying hard just to make the minimum marks in some areas especially the physical sciences, those had been excruciating. So he never got a real chance to interact with his peers and many beleived him to be anti-social, he never got to grow up and find himself like he had intended when he came to Star Fleet, and now he was an Ensign on a great ship and he was doing the same thing innundating himself with more work than truly needed to be done in order to avoid people, but no more. Tonight he was going to go to sickbay get that physical and try to meet people, tonight at the age of 22 Joseph Castillo was going to begin growing up.
