Biographical Information
Place of Birth: 2335 African Confederation, Earth

LaForge's father, Dr. Edward LaForge, is a Starfleet exobiologist. His mother, Captain Silva LaForge, is commanding officer of the U.S.S. Hera NCC-62006. LaForge was born blind. At the age of five he was caught in a fire. Soon after that incident, he received a prosthetic device called a V.I.S.O.R. which sends visual signals directly to his brain. In 2371 he received electronic ocular implants and discontinued use of the V.I.S.O.R. The implants provide the same function as the V.I.S.O.R., while giving him a more "normal" appearance, with less pain. Due to both of his parents being in Starfleet, he moved around a lot while growing up. He has a strong ability with languages because of this. In 2370, the U.S.S. Hera and his mother were declared lost.
