Veronika, or Nika as she is called, grew up in Greenwood, a small town located in the Canadian countryside. Her parents used to own a huge horse ranch, which they sold when they retired. Veronika grew up in great luxury, she was her father’s little princess. As they lived quite far from a decent school her parents decided to hire a group of private teachers instead. Her childhood was extremely pleasant and she became a good-looking, strong and intelligent kid.
During her high school lessons, Veronika, was, apart from her at times arrogant and mischievous behavior a good student, with high grades. One of the teachers she had most trouble with was her physics teacher, Mrs. Steep. Almost every class the two of them got into an argument, often caused by Veronika who was either bored or disagreeing with her teacher’s theories. Her father refused to fire the woman, till great displeasure of the teen girl. The old man knew something the girl would learn soon enough.
Mrs. Sheep, as Veronika used to call her teacher because of her grayish hair and boring stories, turned out to be very keen on the rebel student who she, in a letter to the academy marked as talented, brave, curious and extremely intelligent.
Young Adult Life
When she grew older she found her way to bars quite often and spent many evenings there; dancing, playing games and drinking a beer or two…maybe three or perhaps even four. It was in a bar that she discovered that she had talent for the martial arts. She became a professional athlete on college level. She was not interested in Tsunkatse or Anbo-Jitsu, but preferred the old style fights, containing boxing and kickboxing, pure physical strength and endurance.
Veronika has an older sister, named Tanja a good horse rider who won many youth tournaments, until the day of her 18th birthday when she fell off her horse and broke her neck. Doctors were able to fix her up completely, yet her confidence remained damaged, she never rode again. Tanja decided to change things around and met the right people; she graduated as a pilot from a private institution and found a job with a large Space Freighter Company called ‘Stardust Exodus’. She started out as co- pilot on the small freighters ‘Sparrow’ and ‘Mocking Bird’ and later also on the bulk carriers ‘Gambler’ and ‘The Delegation Prince.’ Recently she got appointed first officer on the ‘Indefatigable’, a heavy bulk ship.
It was because of Tanja’s stories and experiences that Nika decide to make it her goal to get accepted into the Starfleet Academy. That unfortunately did not go well; she got rejected the first time. The reason they gave was she was just 15 and thus too young. The year after she messed up the tests due to nerves and forgot to make two assignments.
For her third attempt she needed a letter of reference, she got one from a person she would have never asked. Mrs. Steep, who turned out to be a retired commodore. Mrs. Steep arranged that Nika was able to be allowed to make the initials and after finishing her tests with sufficient ratings, she was finally in. She would never forget the day she got the call; it was on her 18th birthday.
In Star Fleet
At the academy Veronika changed a lot. Her energy could now be used constructive instead of slightly destructive and she studied hard. The more she studied the more patient she got. Her character stabilized even more after she got married, although she kept her sense of humor and still liked to play pranks on others.
Also her participation in the MMA fights made her personality quite solid. Her confidence grew more and more. She turned out to be a promising officer. But as the saying goes every good aspect is accompanied by a bad one. Veronika started to develop slight racist insights on alien races, it seemed to have came out of nowhere and she does not always try hard to hide it as well as she should. Her husband has warned her several times that she should keep those thoughts to herself. He knows it will get her in trouble one day.
Her husband, Randy, grew up on the plains of Texas in the United States, his parents owned a training facility for race horses. For Randy every day is a new day, he forgives and forgets quickly and is a good athlete who prefers do to wall climbing and boot camp styled work outs. With his raven black hair and ocean blue eyes he manages to enchant his wife every day again. The reason why he chose to join Starfleet is a bit vague but mostly comes down to ‘it looked fun’.
In the academy curriculum Veronika chose to specialize in navigation and stellar cartography with a great emphasize on system failures and alternative methods for navigation and the command and control systems.
Besides that Nika also spend a lot of her time in communications. She specifically chose the technical side of communications instead of learning any of the foreign languages. Unfortunately her piloting skills needed some time to develop. In her first two years she did quite bad on the simulators and even managed to bump a shuttle into a base way too hard, causing only minor damage, but a big dent in her record. The accident was recorded as caused by a technical malfunction, although rumor has it Veronika blacked out. Also with weaponry she had a slow start and is probably one of the few cadets in history who actually shot herself unconscious with a hand phaser. But practice makes perfect and things improved in her final two years. She even miraculously managed to achieve a perfect score on her finals about docking procedures.
Upon graduating the Academy Anilova was assigned to the USS Yeager under the command of Commander Mattiana.
Initially Veronika had a lot of problems integrating on the USS Yeager, mainly due to the high amount of alien-origin crew members. She had requested a transfer which was denied.
As a member of the USS Yeager the young midshipman got involved in the Krynar war. As part of an away- team she was beamed into a Krynar Mothership. It proved to be a very dangerous mission which might have brought in a lot of new data about these species but at the same time costed the lives of her first Officer, Tarik and a medical staff member.
Veronika doesn’t remember many details about the encounter, just the main outline of the adventure. This is due to an overreaction on the neuro-device that should have protected her from the Krynar telepathic attacks. She lost her cool and her mind on board of the Krynar ship and only has survived it because of the actions of Lieutenant JG Olsen, who brought her home safely.
After a week long recovery in sickbay, Nika recovered almost completely. The headaches faded just as the mood swings and hallucinations diminished and eventually disappeared. The only thing that did not recover was her complete memory on the events that had occurred on the Krynar ship.

She shows her displeasure nearly ever when in uniform, as she knows that Starfleet is all for tolerance, but sometimes she just can’t help herself.
