Personal History Venik was born in 2340 in the city of Raal on Vulcan. His parents are Sora, his father, a Commander in the Vulcan Navy, and his mother P’Mani, a professor at the Vulcan Medical Academy. He is the first born of three children, and the only son. He was admitted into one of the highest prestiged schools on Vulcan. Excelling in the sciences, he stayed his focus on those. By the time he was seven, he was in advanced biology. By the age of 10, he was betrothed to T’Pir, who would be his wife when his first Pon Farr started.

By 16 he was taking classes at the Vulcan Science academy and achieved his first degrees in biology and botany. His father was determined to have him enroll in the Science Academy and work on a Vulcan vessel, but Venik had other plans. He submitted his application to 2357, and later that year he took his entrance exam. Scoring high, the Vulcan was promptly accepted into the Academy for the next semester.
Starfleet History Venik started Starfleet Academy in 2358, where he continued to study all aspects of science. Since he already held degrees from the Vulcan Science Academy, Venik was able to quickly get through the initial part of his Academy days. After completing all of his coursework by the end of his sophomore year, he still needed a year of hands on training.

In 2360, around his 20th birthday, Venik’s first Pon Farr came upon him. Starfleet Academy had no choice but to give him a Medical Leave of Absence, since unfulfilled Pon Farr can lead to death. A Vulcan ship in the area picked him up and quickly returned him to Vulcan. He was greeted by elders of the High Command, his family, his betrothed and her family. They immediately went to the ceremonial ground where the koon-ut-kal-if-fee would take place. T’Pir, chose to take Venik as her mate. After six months of preparing a home for his wife, he left her on Vulcan to continue her studies, as he returned to Earth.

Promptly upon returning to Starfleet Academy, after six months, Venik resumed his studies. He was accepted as a cadet aboard a Starfleet vessel, the USS Churchill, in 2361. There he worked with the science department. After completing this tour of duty, he graduated from the Academy.

The USS Saavik, named after a Vulcan Starfleet Science Officer, who helped save Captain Spock on the Genesis planet in 2385. This small Miranda class vessel was Venik’s first posting. He served there as a Science Officer at the rank of Ensign. In the same year, his wife, T’Pir completed her studies of Vulcan History, and asked to move aboard the ship with her husband. She missed his companionship. Shortly after they were reunited, she announced she was pregnant and 10 months later she gave birth to their first born. A daughter, whom Venik named P’Lar.
