Early Life & Childhood
Aboard the evacuation ship SS Billy Ruffin, his mother went into labor while the ship was en route to the refugee rendezvous point of Andoria on New Year's Day, 2367. The Borg assaulted and captured Earth, while his family sought refuge under the nervous protection of Starfleet. Named Kenneth by his father Edward and his mother Julianne, he grew up amongst the many Terran refugees who migrated to Betazed. His childhood was subjected to the single-minded nature of telepaths, and this caused his behavior to evolve into speaking his thoughts. Duplicity was no longer within his nature.
His formative years were spent within the Betazoid educational system, and an open-minded education seemed to be exactly what Kenny Adamson needed. Though he was always at a disadvantage with his telepathic friends, he never allowed that to discourage his friendly nature and extroverted personality. Despite his inability to listen in on their secret conversations, he never held their talents against them, nor did he feel any malice toward their perceptions of his thoughts. He simply grew up learning how to speak his mind, and up until his entry into Starfleet Academy, it worked for him.
Starfleet appeared to be a slap of cold water to Midshipman Kenny Adamson. Though he selected the fascinating world of engineering, he was unused to having to hold his tongue at the right times. His demerits racked up enough to almost expel him from school. It took an understanding instructor and quality time in curbing his loose nature to conform to Starfleet discipline. In his final year at Starfleet Academy in 2389, he graduated with a master's degree in Spaceflight Engineering and the commissioned rank of Lieutenant, junior grade.
Life as a Starfleet Officer
Lieutenant Adamson was immediately posted to the USS Bonneventure as its chief engineering officer under Commander Nathan Hunt.
Aces & Eights
Following his discharge from Starfleet due to an altercation with an Orion trader, Adamson tried to carve out a living as a freighter engineer for nearly a year. After parting ways with that freighter, he transferred himself to Oblivion Point where he began seeking capital to start his own business, known as Aces & Eights, Ltd.
Adamson has had a long-time ongoing relationship with Branch Admiral Ael'Ihhuein i-Mhiessan Adamson t'Sahehn not long after their initial meeting aboard USS Astraeus. That relationship has culminated in marriage as of 2428. As a consequence, Adamson has joined the House of Sahehn (s'Sahehn) and has legally changed his name to Kenneth R. ir-Adamson tr'Sahehn in according with Rihannsu tradition.
