Especially his pilots. His strongest trait would have to be his dedication and his superb level of attention to detail.

Dom is not an open book person, as some of his fellow crewmates are. He is very reserved and a little guarded about his personal life. He is dedicated his career and personal life, on getting his own command. He has worked hard to prove himself, and his hard work and dedication has paid off.

Dom knows how to have fun, but most of the time, he is focusing more on his relationships with his family, or in his advancement with Starfleet, he wanted to do right by the Martinez Family name.

Ambitions Dom wants to be become a admiral, like his father was. He seriously considered going back to Earth to command cadets. Like his father did. Becoming a full time pilot and command his own small craft, but he realized after being promoted to supervisor that he had a real knack a love for command. He wondered what it would be like to command a ship of his own.

Dom has spent the past 2 years to get himself his own command, he is now one step away from becoming an Admiral. His breakthrough was busting a Federation Senator. He felt guilty that he had to arrest his old flame’s husband, in order to elevated to a chance to get his own command.

Dom has now become a command officer and he is not going to waste this opportunity. He knows that Starfleet is taking a risk promoting him. He wondered how an officer so young can be a Captain. Dom was grateful for the opportunity, and he was going to do his best not to let Starfleet down.
Hobbies & Interests Dom’s main hobby/interest that he is really into, is 21st century television dramas. He finds that watching others interact and find love during that time period is soothing. Now days things are hard and complicated on a universal level. Dom discovered 21 century television by accident. He learned about during his academy days. He research ancient earth customs and discovered television. He found that he enjoyed the 21st century. It was so real and yet fake at the same time. It’s nothing like today’s interstellar communication traffic.

Dom is qualified pilot and loves to fly as an interest, more than a career.

Dom also likes to play chess, card games of the 21 century as well.

Relationship with Sarah Sanchez:

Dom and Sarah were high school sweethearts. They dated there Junior and Senior years of high school. They met at the winter formal their junior year, by accident. Dom went to the winter formal because he was the treasure in the student body government. Sarah was a cheerleader. They met by chance, by accident at the event. Sarah was did not have a date to the event and her parents forced her to go, she was a soft spoken woman when Dom met her. They met when Sarah decided to explore the dance, she found a hidden area behind the sound stage and Dom was in the room with a few other students managing the lights, sound stage and other key functions for the school dance.

Dom felt an instant connection with her. But they were young, and decided to give love a chance. The two dated till they graduated from high school, but it was clear to Dom that there relationship will probably not work out. Thanks to Dom serving on the student body leadership, Sarah learned she liked politics, and Dom decided he was better at being an officer than a diplomat or a politician.

They both knew they were going separate directions and agreed to end the relationship. Due this relationship and to be fair to the girl he loved, he decided he would not date a fellow shipmate. 7 years later he has hailed himself to that standard, he read that Senator Sarah Gillman-Sanchez was now married. He was very happy for her, but he sometimes wondered when he heard the news, did he make the right call to end the relationship?

In 2393 Dom Martinez was leading a mission on the USS Lovejoy, and discovered that Senator Paul Gillman was a traitor to the Federation. He was found to be working with Krazzle to destabilize the corridor. A sector of space that separates the klingons and romulans.
