Ever since he was young he was also interested in flying. Young Zimmer also took up an interest in holodecks.

Academy years (2374-2378)Edit

After high school, Zimmer decided to join Starfleet, his parents were a little hesitant to let him go, since he was an only child. In fact his father was entirely against it. At the Academy he excelled in his flight training and his instructors felt that he was one of the best pilots ever to come out of Starfleet Academy.

In 2382, Zimmer piloted the USS Pioneer during the Battle of Minark, which he received a commendation for. ("Torment and Woe")
