Character Description
On the job, Vincent is a no-nonsense person. He is a "stickler" to the rules but have on occasion bent the rules when absolutely required. He tries to be diplomatic in everything he does and abides by the creed that violence is the last resort of the incompetent. Off the job, the asian man always imparts an easy-going gesture towards everyone. He also makes it a point to be informal when dealing with his senior staff while not wearing his uniform. Of course, as a commanding officer, there are limits to his friendliness.
Romantically, Vincent had been involved a total of two times in his life. The first romantic escapade involved a fellow 14th fleet officer named Alysia Donovan, a Lieutenant Commander on Starbase 517. The two were acquainted through Alysia's older brother, who happened to be Vincent's classmate back in the academy. It was truly his best year until a court martial involving Alysia's brother had forced Vincent to testify against his best friend. Things fell out between Vincent and Alysia and though it was very painful, he was able to overcome the trauma when he received his first posting after graduation to the U.S.S. Pasadena which was assigned to deep space exploration.

The second time Vincent had a relationship was when he and the away team of a crashed shuttle was stranded on a class-M planet which was encapsulated in a space-time ruptured anomaly that caused time to linearly vary between the planet's surface and beyond the stratosphere. The result was that for every month in normal space, it was one year on the surface. During the six years, Vincent was involved with a woman who happened to be the leader of the S.S. Bastion, a prisoner transport ship that crashed landed there 3 months (3 years on the surface) ago. It took him only a few weeks to fall deeply in love, and after learning and coming to accepting his fate, he was completely prepared to give up on the idea of ever returning.

After being rescued, Vincent's relationship was abruptly ended. She was after all a prisoner and still had to finished her sentencing (or rather, begin her sentencing). It was deemed impossible and futile for him to pursue the relationship and as a result, developed a mild form of clinical depression. Unable to cope with his current turmoil, Vincent requested for leave of absence from his duties and returned to Earth.

This sabbatical to Earth, and a few months at a monastery in Tibet was pivotal in re-shaping Vincent's personality. Although he did not experience 'enlightenment', he was influenced with the teachings of Buddhism. One of the revered monks at the monastery told Vincent that his path was with the stars. So, with a renewed sense of purpose and determination, the now recovered man returned to Starfleet and was offered the position of Strategic Operations but due to an administrative condition, was assigned to the U.S.S. Renown as first officer.

Throughout his career with Starfleet, Vincent has rarely displayed more than annoyance or irritance at anything or anyone. But that soon changed after learning of Jamie Valbain's disappearance after she failed to make a scheduled rendezvous on an undercover mission. It turned out that Jamie had been caught and held captive in an Orion Syndicate stronghold. Risking his career as a result of direct insurbordination, Vincent solicitated the help of his then Auxiliary Fleet Support team (T4) and called in a few favours to launch a rescue mission. Unfortunately, Jamie had been subjected to heinous tortures and extreme deprivation which had radically tainted her once jovial and bubbly personality. And this was all under the direction of a half-human/half-ferengi named Kronx whom dubbed himself as the perfect agent of the syndicate. Had it not been for the Ajax who arrived in time to beam everyone off, Vincent would surely had brutally murdered the monster with his own bare hands.

After that incident, Vincent began exuding a very protective behaviour towards his friends, particularly his new Hiei crew and most of all, the young woman he had rescued from the clutches of the evil syndicate.

The auspicious day finally arrived for Vincent when during an excursion to Ogus II, Captain Damien Korczynski appeared via holo-emitter to present Vincent's official promotion to Captain. Nothing made him more proud and satisfied to be finally in command of his own ship, despite the Hiei being an old "Excelsior Class variant".

So, all in all, Vincent is quite well-rounded in terms of experience and personal development. He prides himself in having a good judge of character and confidently, he relies on his instincts and "gut feel" when facing dubious situations.

Vincent also has a very low tolerance for alcohol.

Piloting late 20th century jet propelled atmospheric aircraft, namely the Northrop-Grumman F-14 Tomcat. Preparing fine dining cuisine, mostly Asian dishes that was mentored by his own mother when he was growing up.

A recent interest in starship hull design saw Vincent starting his own shuttle design. Although most of the work is currently being developed as a holodeck program, it would probably never ever come close to fruition unless Vincent could concede and ask for help. In this aspect of course, he is quite stubborn.

Another hobby of his comes in the form of re-enacting historical battle scenes. Mostly those during the early Chinese conflicts some a few hundred years before China was unified in the 20th century. The asian man has known to turn off security protocols a few times during his tenure as a first officer on the U.S.S. Indefatigable.
Languages Federation standard, Native Earth Chinese dialects.
Physical Description Vincent is a typical male of Chinese descent. He is just about average in height and built and does not stand out in a crowd.
