Personal History Born as the first born of ****Classified**** Edwards and Anne Edwards on a cold December night in 2358. He went through primary and secondary school with very little challenge. He learnt ancient Indonesian and Korean, by the end of first year High school. He went on to learn ancient Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese by the end of third year. By the end of school he was speaking fluently six Terran languages, including Federation standard which he was born into, when he added French.

After finishing school he entered an Arts degree at the University of Edinburgh which led to a Masters in Linguistics and Social Anthropology. After completing his masters study he changed to external student for his Ph. D and headed to America. Entering Starfleet to help pay for his prior training and to fund the Ph. D training.
Service Record

Cadet Freshman year
Anthony started at the Academy at the same time as Doctorate, he started concentrating on non-Terran linguistics and cultures, starting with Reman a Romulan detrivative, and Klingon,

Cadet Sophomore year
He concentrated on Zindi with a specialisation in insectoid, this year and began to play at being a cartographer by taking astrometrics and stellar cartography lectures and workshops.

Cadet Junior year
This year Anthony continued working on his astrometrics and Stellar Cartography. For his linguistic studies this year showed him how close the Romulans and Vulcans still are. Most challenging thing this year were the verbs and adverbs and there slight differences with vastly different meanings.

Cadet Senior year
Anthony’s stellar cartography exam this year was the hardest but he got the best results, His Linguistics exams left him Dux of the class. Then he did the Kobayashi Muru. With a fail it didn't lower his marks at all, because it was programmed individually to be unwinnable. He never understood using an unwinnable scenario.

The final language and society that he concentrated on for the year was Denobulan. Outside of the Terrans and Vulcans that he studied last year the Denobulans were one of the first UFP signatories. He enjoyed this year's studies.

At the end of his Cadetship he was promoted to Ensign. While he continued to work on his University study by correspondence. He expected to be Dr Edwards at roughly the time of making full Lieutenant, making him Lieutenant Dr. The difference is as a Science Officer there was no dust jackets away from the science lab, which he was happy with because he would likely just wear a science jumpsuit when on lab duty.

Fleet career
After promotion to Ensign Edwards was assigned to the Oberth class vessel USS Copernicus that searched out new life and languages in the Galaxy. Anthony was in his element on this ship as it was exactly what he was trained for. At the end of his first three year mission the ships life ended in mothballs and he was transferred with the entire crew to the brand new USS Serpens. As part of the Mothballing of the Copernicus it gave him a date to get to Earth for his Philosophy graduation.

With a new vessel and some small rejigging of the crew to fill retirees saw Ltjg Edwards promoted from normal Science Officer to Assistant Chief Science Officer aboard the new one. This vessel was less science and more a cruiser with a science mission. A year or two into the new cruise Edwards was promoted and transferred to the USS Wolff.
