Personal History:
Just over 8 years ago, the Federation had sent the research vessel USS ARMSTRONG to OLTHAR PRIME to see just how the planet's scientists were doing in their research for a Quantum Warp Propulsion System. Sholla Talak Fairborn, the head of the research was invited on the ship, she was followed by two of her assistants and her son who had always wanted to see an "alien" vessel. The Oltharians were given a tour of the USS ARMSTRONG, during which time Elan showed a remarkably rapid understanding of Federation technology.

Later in the tour in one of the cargo bays bringing special research material to Olthar Prime, a crewman became caught under a heavy probe which had fallen off an antigrav-unit. Although two other crewmen tried their best to free the fallen crewman, the probe could not be moved. Before the First Officer could call for help and wanting to assist, Elan reached down and by himself picked up the probe and gently placed it back on the antigrav-unit at the surprise of the ship's crewmen and First Officer.

Later that evening, at a formal reception in the Oltharian's honour, the Captain discussed and convinced Sholla to allow her son to enrol in Starfleet, where both his mental and physical attributes could be nurtured.

Oltharians' mental capabilities:
As a race, the Oltharians are considered a very intellectual race with a high interest in all aspects of sciences, but like with most humanoid races, there are certain individuals who achieve better than others. Elan IS NOT one of them.

Elan's mental capabilities:
When tested by the CMO of the USS ARMSTRONG, Elan obtained a 135 on general IQ. The Doctor pointed out that Elan's mind seemed especially *open* to information, showing an amazing willingness to learn. In his report to the Captain, the Doctor suggested that more research be conducted on the people of Olthar to see if this was a common characteristic.

Physical Attributes:
With a gravity 1.8 times that of EARTH's standard, the Oltharians are naturally stronger than most humans. This strength places them in the Vulcan / Klingon range. By Oltharian standards, Elan's is *a big boy* with a relative strength. In the CMO's report, it was noted that although Elan's raw strength was more than impressive, it seemed that he was unwilling to use it to its fullest. When questioned as to the reason why he was holding back, Elan's only answer was, "It's not my way".

Although Elan can easily be considered as a physically "strong" individual, he does not like to use his strength. This does not mean that he *will not* use it. In a situation which warrants it, Elan is more than willing and able to use his full strength for the sake of helping others, usually putting the safety of others before his own.

Elan's test results - Dr. Sheena Takashi - USS ARMSTRONG
Base IQ - 150
Spatial orientation - Human average
Mathematical reasoning - Human average
Problem solving - Above Human average
Ability to learn - Above Human average
Memory recall - Human average

Hearing - Slightly below Human average
Sight - Apparently same as Human
Strength - Above Klingon average
Reflexes - Human average
Running speed - Below Human average

Interaction with other Oltharians - Elan's seems very happy and appears to be a valuable member of the planetary community.

Interaction with other Races - Elan is a very curious about the worlds and people outside his own. He has an acute willingness to please others.
