Call sign: Lastline
Nathan "Lastline" Merano was born to Earth Scientist Jean and Maxwell Merano. He spent most of his young life living in the tundra of Antarctica. His parents team discovered an abandoned outpost that was over a hundred years old. But because of the cold and the fact that the ice had taken most of it over it was well preserved. Nathan became fascinated with old Earth.
Finally his parents scientific team left the Antarctica tundra and they moved to a farming community in Ohio. While there he met up with a traveling circus that used ancient flying machines with props on the front of them. Nathan became a quick study and by the time he was twelve he was flying in the circus.
When Nathan went to high school he enrolled in an ancient earth studies course that enabled him to fly ancient earth craft with jet turbines on the back. During college Nathan flew short range shuttle craft for New Berlin's tourism bearu. After college Nathan applied and was denied entry into Starfleet he buckled down studied hard and the next year he applied again and this time was accepted.
Nathan originally was studying to be a tactical officer aboard a Starship his instructors noticed Nathan's boredom with the ciruclum and shortly thereafter he began training to be a starfighter pilot. Nathan took to flying starfighters like a duck to water. It was here that he earned his call sign: Lastline. Nathan seemed to be best a defending the rear of his flight. And in a training simulation Nathan was able to defend the line against eight superior fighters.
Nathan's carrier looked promising. Until, he took up an Admirals daughter in a training fighter. When he set down the fighter the daughter was found in less clothing than when she left. Nathan was reprimanded and when his assignment came in, it was for the station furthest away from the Admirals daughter. Nathan prefers to be called Merano or Lastline and is more comfortable in a cockpit than anywhere else.
Lastline expected nothing less than to be on everyones S-List when arriving on Serenity Station. However he found that he was indeed among friends, and was quickly accepted. Assigned to a Valkyrie fighter dubbed the Sun Burst. Lastline has already participated in several skirmishes. And was promoted from Senior Lieutenant to Colonel.
