Personal History Thomas was born on December 12, 2319 in Billings, Montana. His family owns a successful cattle ranch that has been in his family for generations. Thomas is the eldest son of his parents, and from a young age he always strove to do the right thing. His parents encouraged him to attend university, which he did at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. While an undergrad, he attended an recruiting event for the Starfleet JAG corps and decided to apply for the JAG Officer Training course. Once completed his undergraduate degree, he attend Law School at the Baylor Law School in Waco, Texas. Upon completing his coursework and passing the bar exam, he was commissioned as an Ensign in Starfleet and attended the United Federation School of Interstellar Law in San Francisco. After passing the UFP bar exam, he was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade and began his career in the Starfleet JAG Corps. While attending the UFP School of Interstellar Law, he met the love of his life, Charlotte, and they were married before he graduated. His first duty assignment was as a staff judge advocate aboard Starbase 12. Thomas learned quickly that he was a natural in the courtroom and in his tenure he developed a reputation for being an aggressive and formidable prosecutor as well as a passionate defense counsel. His case record was impressive at the completion of his mandatory service, he chose to make Starfleet a career. His next posting was to Deep Space 3 where he served as the Deputy Chief Legal Counsel. His success at Deep Space 3 was noted by his commanding officer, and he was offered an appointment to the Starfleet Judiciary on Earth where he served as a judge. During his time on Earth, Thomas and his wife welcomed his son, Nathaniel, into the world. Thomas learned that while he was a capable lawyer, the demands of being a judge were not to his liking, and he requested an assignment back to the legal side. He was then posted as the Chief Legal Counsel for the USS CAPE TOWN. Following his tour on the CAPE TOWN, he was assigned as the Chief Judge Advocate for Starbase 32. The Dominion War caused Thomas to remain in his post on Starbase 32 for longer than normal as he dealt with numerous cases involving combat actions from Alliance forces. At the conclusion of the Dominion War, Thomas volunteered to be a member of the defense team for the war crimes trial of the Female Changeling. His request brought about the ire of his colleagues, but Thomas believed that while victorious in the war, it was imperative that the Federation uphold it's values and that the Female Changeling should receive a fair defense. His conduct at the trial earned the respect of many and at the trial's conclusion, he was offered the Deputy Judge Advocate General position at Starfleet Command. Thomas accepted and returned to Earth where he was able to see his son graduate from the Starfleet Academy and begin his career as a Starfleet Officer. Upon the retirement of the Judge Advocate General, Thomas was recommended by the Federation President to the role of Judge Advocate General.
