Personality & Traits

General Overview Ham is easy going with a quick whit and is likely to make light of any situation.

Although no one can explain why and Ham has never explained it. He operates under the notion that all Tellarite every where love him. This belief was only cemented in his mind while the Endeavour was docked in a Tellarite ship yard after the ship suffered extensive damage wile defending the planet Altair VI from Romulan attack.

He prefers to be called Ham rather than his proper name of Hamilton. Never use his middle name. The name Willard is not to be spoken in his presence.

He has a strong work ethic and will only leave a job undone if ordered to do so and expects those under him to put more as much effort as he does. He leads by example and will not ask anyone to do something he himself would not do.

In his spare time he loves to cook.
