By age 12, he considered himself a "Man of the Outback", and tended to disappear time to time taking "walk abouts". His mother, Kestra Hagen-Quinn was concerned that his Betazoid half was being exploited, and causing him to look for isolation. In 2362 he was taken to Betazed so h could be properly trained in controlling his abilities.

Early Starfleet Life Edit

He would return to Earth in 2364 to enroll in the Starfleet Academy. he immediately sparked a friendship with a Cadet named Elizabeth Ann Smythe. Over the next 4 Years it would blossom a romance.

Ensign Hathaway was assaulted, and would die at the hands of the Orions. Enraged by this David vowed revenge. In 2374 the USS Ranger would finally find the colony, and began a rescue assault. David would escape in the assault, and kill the Commander, before he would be rescued. On the way back to earth, he was updated on the war situation has shifted to the Dominion, and of his fathers passing during the Battle of Betazed. Heart broken, he took several months to recuperated at Sydney. It was the attack on Starfleet Command in 2375, that he asked for assignment.
