Coin Story

Geordi La Forge was born on 16 February 2335 in the African Confederation, Earth. As a young officer, La Forge was assigned to pilot Jean-Luc Picard on an inspection tour. En route to their destination, Picard made an off-hand remark about the shuttle's engine efficiency not being what it should be. In response to this, La Forge stayed up all night refitting the shuttle's fusion initiators. When Picard discovered this, he knew that he wanted La Forge with him on his next command.

As a result, in 2364 La Forge was named chief conn officer, U.S.S. Enterprise. He was quickly promoted to lieutenant, transferred from command to operations division and named chief engineer. Just one year later, in 2366, he was promoted to lieutenant commander. His rapid rise during his Enterprise assignment confirms his no-nonsense talent, skill, insight and administrative ability — as well as a keen judgment for needed modifications in the field

La Forge was born blind and often wore a VISOR, a crescent-moon-shaped device attached at the temples that, although painful, enabled him to "see". With the cybernetic technology connected directly to his brain, it required such a complex and broad-based input that the user had to concentrate to focus on one area. It was assumed that this intense focusing ability enabled him to master the complexities of warp engineering and other starship systems.

He often enjoyed the senior officers' weekly poker game, and even though his artificial "eyes" allowed him to detect bluffing and see opponents' cards in the ultraviolet spectrum he never "peeked" until a hand was over!
