For a Repair Officer, Stellan Shaw is pretty unstable. He experiences wild mood swings and periods of intense paranoia. He finds people ‘difficult’. Machinery, on the other hand, is easy.
He is almost unable to deal with social situations – when forced to confront his team, he barks orders or mumbles them, unable to find a happy middle ground. Mostly he tries to avoid them, and is heavily reliant on a professional and forgiving second-in-command to function.
As a result he tends to pass on the mundane tasks within the ship to members of his team and mostly you find him outside the ship, running checks or repairs. He is very fond of time spent in his EVA pod using the arms he’s designed to help him.
