Despite this, he is well aware of his abilities, his ego sometimes bordering on narcissism. However, at heart, he's a nice guy, if a little vain. He does, however, suffer from a degree of emotional stunting in regards to his relationships, due to his refusal to become attached after his Mother's Death|

|Personal History||Bill was born in 2366 onboard the USS Arumis, an Excelsior Class Starship where his Mother was serving as Chief Engineer. Bill was the elder of his parents' twin children, his sister Zara being born six minutes after he was. In spite of this, Bill tended to be the more immature of the pair.
Bill and his family spent the first five years of his life onboard the Arumis, during which time his Mother rose to the position of Executive Officer. However, in 2372, his Father took the twins to Earth to live on their family's farm in South-West England. Later, in 2374, the family would receive word that the twins' Mother had been severely injured during operation Return. Shortly after her return to Earth, his mother passed away in Starfleet Medical.
Following this, Bill threw himself into his hobbies at home. By the time he was 10, when his Father re-married, he'd taken apart and put back together his Grandfather's old 20th century Mustang more than once. By the time he was 13 and his younger brother was born, he'd moved onto model starships, having a collection of various Starfleet vessels.
When he was 15, his sister teased him over his crush on a girl in their class, Danielle. Bill's response was, as his Step-Mother put it, maladjusted. His Father took him to see a therapist, not for the first time since his Mother's death, and he was described as being emotionally stunted, and almost incapable of developing any meaningful attachments. While he cared for his family and friends, he seemed incapable of anything deeper.
In 2382, at age 16, Bill and his sister graduated High School. At this time, he took the Starfleet Academy entrance exam. He passed the entrance examination, but failed his psychological evaluation. A year later, in 2383, he took the exam and evaluation again. He passed the exam, and scraped a pass on his evaluation, though he was ordered to undergo quarterly re-evaluations.
In 2387, Bill graduated Starfleet Academy in the 89th Percentile. After 2 months leave, he was assigned to the Antares Shipyards in the Bajor sector, as a junior warp technician. Later, in 2389, He was promoted to Lieutenant Jg. He continued working as a warp technician for another year, before transferring to the Excelsior Class USS Repulse as Assistant Chief Engineer.
He found serving on a Starship long term, rather than occasional shakedowns as he had for the first three years after the Academy, to be a challenging experience. In 2391, he was sent as part of a repair crew to a Federation Communication relay, during which a storage unit collapsed, falling and breaking his left shoulder and arm. After regeneration of the broken bones and some physio therapy, Bill was allowed to return to normal duty, four weeks later.
In 2393, after a 16 month stint overseeing the refit of the Repulse, Bill was transferred to the USS Endeavour, as her new Chief Engineer
