Personal History Robert was involved his his parents shipping business from an early age, primarily helping to load cargo and manage the holds of the families freighters. This led him to experience many new and interesting locations throughout the Alpha and Beta quadrants. He took a keen interest in antiquities and ancient artifacts as the families operations took him from planet to planet. Every new planet offered a new opportunity to see something new.

At 18 he enlisted in Starfleet as an engineering crewman and did a brief 4 year tour. During this time, he found that enjoyed leave more than the duty schedules that were imposed upon him.

After leaving Starfleet, he used the contacts that he had formed during his tour, as relying on contacts with his parents to start out on his own. He began buying and selling artifacts and goods from around the quadrant, matching buyers with sellers in order do grow his business. He became known for being able to procure hard to get items.

Although this resulted in the occasional high ticket purchase, it didn't pay the day to day bills. Robert expanded into shipping and receiving of bulk goods and commodities, buying large lots of goods and reselling them, and delivering them to clients, taking some of the smaller jobs that his parents shipping company couldn't or wouldn't handle.

This all changed when it was determined that his families business for years had been smuggling illegal and illicit items for the Orion Syndicate and the Endrazi Trade Cartel. His family lost everything and was convicted of various crimes.

Robert, while implicated, was left relatively free of issue due to only being a contractor for the family, and not an actual owner. However, in order to distance himself from the fallout, decided to start a new operation on Roosevelt Station.
