Carson was born on June 7, 1976 to William and Janet Tennant and grew up in the city of Inverness, in northern Scotland. His father worked in the shipyards but worked in Glasgow most of the time so was not really home most of the time. His mother was a teacher at a local primary school teaching science. He developed a fascination with astronomy and physics from his mother. Carson done well in primary and in high school coming out with good grades and was lucky that his family have enough money to send him to Edinburgh to be able to go to Edinburgh University to get a degree in Computer Science. That is where he met Rachel Williams that would later become his wife. He had developed a passion for computers that he had slowly began to develop.
After getting a degree he married Rachel and went onto have a family. Carson was continuing a science career but put his family first. In 2018, Rachel died of cancer. This had a devastating effect on Carson and he started to focus more his time on his science career. He was approached by the British Stargate Program to become a BC-304 Software Specialist that he accepted. He then moved onto Stargate Command to become a Computer Engineer. He also participated in the design of the DD-306.
He was asked by to join the Aureus-Celestis Expedition and was assigned to CE-4. After Colonel Hubbard was injured during the EMP made Aureus lose power and blew a few panels including one the Colonel was standing next to, Carson was made acting expedition commanding officer by the IOA until Colonel Hubbard had recovered. However in early 2023 the IOA decided to appoint a new Commander, Colonel Jake Denton of the US Army was made the CO. With this Carson returned to his duties as Chief Science Officer. He continued in that role till Aureus was evacuated and the Aureus-Celestis Expedition returned to Earth.
He was also the one who put forward the plan for the Excalibur Expedition and was made its Chief Science Officer with most of the same senior staff from the Aureus-Celestis Expedition. However upon the expeditions return to Earth he was quickly assigned as the new Chief Science Advisor for the Atlantis Expedition.
Carson was never interested in joining the military. He love a challenge no matter how big or small it is because when he was young he was always asked to do almost anything. He still misses his wife, Rachel and keeps a picture of her and his kids in his quarters.
