Rank: Captain Academic History and Distinctions: Ryugi Arlian Kazamaru is one of the youngest captains in Starfleet History. By age twenty-two he had already graduated top of his class at Starfleet Academy, spending six years taking courses from nearly all fields of Starfleet, including Medical, Engineering, Science, and Command fields. After his time there, he had gained enough knowledge and credits to apply for any of the major fields, but followed through with Command. During his time at Starfleet Academy, he was briefly affiliated with Red Squad, but eventually left them to pursue other interests. In addition to his outstanding academic performance, he is credited as the only Cadet to nearly beat the Kobayashi Maru scenario without editing the computer program. He lasted with the longest recorded time on the simulation, Thirty-Seven Minutes and Fifty-Two Seconds.
While Kazamaru did not "beat" the simulation, or "survive" the test, he did complete his rescue mission at the cost of his life, ship, and with minimal casualties to his surviving crew. However, he had violated a treaty in the process. He justified his actions by stating that a few human lives meant more to him than a few words scribbled on a document, and he was willing to die for his beliefs. His actions were a testament to his words, and he "passed" the test of character with flying colors, and received a commendation for exceptional command skills. His Kobayashi Maru test would come back to haunt him when he served on the USS Angara, a Miranda Class vessel on a diplomatic mission near the Vega Colony. The Angara was attacked by Borg while assisting a wounded vessel and during the ensuing chaos the Senior Officers were killed. Kazamaru quickly assumed command, and commanded the Angara through the rest of the engagement. Soon after, he was promoted to Lieutenant, and granted command of a Constitution Class, the USS Kobayashi, by Admiral Quinn.
