Lieutenant Arex' biography lists that he is one of the first Edoans to be enlisted in Starfleet. He later was promoted to officer after graduating with honors from Starfleet Academy. He originated from Edos, the second of five planets at the star 92 Trianguli Rho. There is a paragraph describing the three-legged, three-armed structure of the Edoan body, and they are described as vaguely "caninoid." Uhura is quoted commenting how his dextrous form makes him an amazing panel operator, Leonard McCoy comments on the strength and stamina which is the Edoan norm, and Hikaru Sulu describes how an extra leg and extra arm makes a fencing partner invincible. Having Scotch whisky, Arex once drank Montgomery Scott under the table, and McCoy mentioned that his constant smiling expression was the perfect poker face. Spock and Arex shared a common sensitivity, their powerful hearing. Spock once counseled Arex on the difficulties faced on a Human-crewed starship. An incident is mentioned where his keen senses saved the day, when he detected a phaser coolant leak before it became visible. After serving under James T. Kirk, he transferred to the "refitted" Constitution-class USS Hood, but returned to serve on the new USS Enterprise-A.
Drawn by Ken Penders & Freff. The biography lists him as "Edoan," rather than the later assumed name of his race, "Edosian."

Leslie, Frank
According to his biography, Leslie grew up on his family's ranch near El Paso, Texas, not far from the Starfleet Impulse Engine Testing Grounds. He had an interest in martial arts, including judo, fencing and karate. He met James Kirk at Starfleet Academy, where he regularly bested his future commanding officer in judo tournaments. After his tour on the Enterprise, he served as a lieutenant commander on the USS Lexington.
The article also mentions Leslie's first assignment on the USS Enterprise, as depicted in TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", his resemblance to Capt. Kirk, and the one blemish on his otherwise spotless record: the spore-induced mutiny as seen in TOS: "This Side of Paradise".
