Ke is one of the first candidates on his homeworld to venture beyond the Briar Patch.
He is descended from ancestors who migrated to extraterrestrial colonies during the Nemu Reconfiguration, and like most colonists was raised with a desire to leave the waters for the stars. He is also a first generation Starfleet graduate and also one of a handful of Nemu graduates working outside of the cybernetics sector as part of a Nemu Exploratoratory Circle/Federation initiative.
This officer has a unique physiology and preparatory training and is cross-trained in multiple departments. However, Ke is part of a post-Dominion War graduating class and has less in-field combat experience than active veterans.
