Prime Directive - Isn't that a Bullywug?
Vulcan pathology specialist who collects organs in jars
Ditt is the typical stoic upright analytical Vulcan: Tall, pointy-eared, unflappable and seemingly humourless with the common Vulcan dark, straight hair kept short (so not to get in the way of his work) and pointed eyebrows that accentuate the angular aspect of his face.
Ditt is often matter-of-fact and workmanlike in his approach to his work, lending him a somewhat anti-social air often falsely attributed to Vulcan scientists, medics and engineers.

Ditt is the Medic of the STD team having studied in medicine at the academy. Once he had been taught the differences between Human iron-based blood and Vulcan, copper-based blood, Ditt started to specialise in Haematology, theorising that other types of blood would surely exist beyond what Vulcan and the Federation had already seen. This grew into a study of Pathology, starting specifically with blood borne pathogens and expanding on his studies from there with a speed borne from both curiosity and logical progression.
Ditt takes a typically conservative Vulcan approach to everything – if it exists, it can (and should) be studied and understood. Ditt doesn’t act on gut instinct of use feels to operate his medical instruments, he works on a purely logical basis allowing empirical evidence and reasoned outcomes to dictate his course of action when treating any patient or studying any given lifeform or pathogen.
After joining the Prime Team programme, Ditt re-specialised into transplants and has started to increase his field surgery and emergency medicine skills. After all, it’s only logical that a specialised away team would run into hazards and, therefore, on-the-spot lifesaving medicine may be required. During his time looking into transplant practise, Ditt started to collect and store organ specimens for study. He’s rarely without his jars of pickled lung, preserved liver and sterilised entrails and can be frequently be found staring at his specimens when on-station or aboard ship during team downtime.
While his team see him as a slightly creepy (and somewhat emotionless) medic with a ghoulish pastime and a broom-stuck-up-his-jacksie, they are all glad that Ditt’s studious approach gives him the skills to keep them alive in the field.
