Not so long ago there was an angry young man named Malko. His mother and breathed to see him earn what she had not, joining with a Trill Symbiot. When he finished a round of studies, she pushed him into athletics. When he finished a round of athletics, she pushed an artistic class upon him. When he slept she was there before he could wake on his own with more studies. When he refused, she nagged, needled, cried, and prayed to the heavens to forgive a failed mother.
At the height of adolescent rage, Malko knew what he had to do. His rebellion ceased and he threw himself into studies and training with all his heart, dreaming of the day when he would be offered a symbiot and decline.
For all the strength he believed he had, on Malkoís nineteenth birthday, his convictions wavered and his act of defiance failed. The next day, waking from a surgical haze, he slowly explored in his mind what it was to be Aurin Malko.
He wasnít weak anymore. When his mother began regaling him with her plans for a rich and prosperous life in oceanic science, Malko calmly pressed send on the data pad and began to pack. The plans went on, his mother not seeming to notice. The big trill embraced her and kissed her gently on the forehead. ďIím going to Star Fleet now, mother. Donít you think itís time for you to find a ship of you own.
Four years later, Aurin Malko had completed the officerís program at the Starfleet academy and his mother was out at sea, studying alga, content with who she was for the first time in her life.
