Dr. Kelvin is the Chief Medical Doctor on the Heavy Battlecruiser Scorpion. Dr. Kelvin is a capable surgeon, diagnostician, and geneticist. Like all the chief medical officers on the Project Morpheus ships, Dr. Kelvin has to pull double duty. He has to be a doctor for the crew as well as be available to the chief engineer because of the biological nature of the ships of Project Morpheus.
While Dr. Kelvin is an excellent doctor and officer, he can be a bit harsh with his bedside manner. Dr. Kelvin is very astute as a doctor and is very fastidious about making sure officers and crew on duty are fit for that duty.
