Personal History Sitok was born in the Vulcan province of Raal, bordering the Voroth Sea. From an early age, he strived to earn the respect of his parents. His father was a key figure in the Vulcan political machine, eventually rising to sit on the Vulcan High Command. His mother was an accomplished musician. Growing up, Sitok learned to hone his skill with watercraft, going out onto the Voroth Sea whenever he wasn't studying. He quickly discovered that he had an aptitude for engineering concepts and machinery, as opposed to scientific endeavors as most of his peers had. To the consternation of his parents, Sitok chose to enter Starfleet upon completion of his schooling, despite his father wanting him to pursue a career in politics.

Sitok arrived at Starfleet Academy in 2374, during the height of the Dominion War. He immediately began his courses as part of the Corps of Engineering section, focusing his degree in warp theory. During his first semester, Dominion forces had captured Betazed. Instead of the usual off-duty time, Sitok conducted battle readiness drills with the other cadets. During the Breen raid on Starfleet Headquarters in early 2375, several members of Sitok's academy class were killed or severely injured. Sitok himself suffered major burns and the loss of his left eye.

After graduation, he experienced pon farr for the first time. Returning to Vulcan, he became mated to T'Lora, the daughter of another family whom he had been betrothed to since a young boy through the "koon-ut-kal-if-fee" ceremony. They became married and through the course of their relationship had a son and a daughter. Tragedy struck while Sitok was assigned to the U.S.S. Venture along the Romulan Neutral Zone. The Venture discovered during routine patrol that the Borg had opened up a transwarp gateway. The Venture managed to close the gateway but sustained heavy damage in an ensuing battle with a Borg sphere. Sitok's family were in a section of the ship that was sliced away. It remains unknown if they died or were assimilated. Through mandatory counseling sessions and personal meditation, Sitok found a way to cope with the loss and return to full duty, though he is still haunted by the event.

Eventually transferring to Langley Station at the frontier of the former Cardassian DMZ, he hopes to continue his career with his first posting in a command-level position.
