Service Record An aerospace engineer by training, Kurt Holtz was conscripted into military service at the beginning of the Third World War. For most of the war he served as an engineering technician on space vehicles, from crude orbital 'warships' to the survey and colonization ships that later journeyed to Luna and Mars. Declining to remain in service after the war as part of the nascent Earth Alliance Navy, he instead mustered out(holding the rank of Chief Petty Officer) and continued his education, obtaining a doctorate in aerospace engineering in 2109 and finding employment as a spaceship designer for General Dynamics.

In 2112, when the Givers' transmission reached Earth, Holtz's prior military experience and work for General Dynamics brought him to the EA Navy's attention when they were looking for designers and engineers to build the EAV Genesis. He was placed in charge of the team that eventually reverse-engineered the alien plans and went on to help oversee construction. Following completion of the vessel, he was requested by the Navy to stay with the project, joining the ship's company itself. He declined, but the Navy simply reactivated him at his wartime rank anyway and assigned him to the Genesis' engineering contingent.
