Personal History

Born on Earth to an exasperatingly normal, and very boring family, Black wanted nothing more than to just get off planet and away from the extremely parochial world she spent her formative years in. Her parents had been society drop-outs, she'd always assumed, and had settled down in a town and surrounding area that had no intention of entering the twenty-fifth century any time soon, and almost had the feel of somewhere that had grudgingly only entered each preceding century when it had been forced to. The town being twinned with the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork didn't exactly endear her much.

As soon as she was old enough, Black left Wincanton via the A303 and managed to get a job at the Stone Henge visitors centre and space port, crewing on a civilian transport that was going anywhere but Earth. From that first moment, she started to learn how to fly anything she could from whoever would teach her. Shuttles through to haulers, she was soon competent behind the controls of most anything. However, there came a time when needs meant she had to enlist in Starfleet, where she was initially placed in the Tactical department where her piloting skills were most useful.

An incident during the Krynar invasion, where she was piloting a commandeered transport to evacuate civilians ended in disaster when the transport was shot down and Black had no choice but to eject several containers of evacuees in order to bring the rest of the craft down safely. Though she had saved half the people she'd started out with, the fact that she'd had to make that decision at all affected her deeply. From this incident however, Black was given a field promotion to Midshipman, and a scholarship at the Academy, where she was assessed and after psychological evaluation, she was reassigned to Security, graduating with the rank of Ensign.

Assigned to the Sheridan, she was involved in a failed mission inside Romulan space where she, under unknown mind control, assassinated Ambassador Whitten. She was later cleared of the offence and returned to unit, however she has been placed on a period of probation for the time being.

Her next mission didn't fare too well either. A mission to track down a missing Starfleet vessel took the Sheridan to the Gamma Quadrant. After some time following their trail, they found some of the Vulcan crew being forced to mine ore on a backwater world apparently under Dominion control. During the away mission, Black's insubordinate streak resulted in tensions between her and the mission Commander, as well as the deaths of three prisoners under her care.

These were later proved to not be her fault, as the Dominion Operatives had committed suicide.
Upon return to the Alpha Quadrant, Black decided that maybe a career in Security was not the best career path for her.

An opening became available within the Tactical Department of the USS Copernicus, and since her base skills were better suited toward piloting, it was decided to see whether this return to her previous career will suit her temperament better. Also at this time, in an attempt to distance herself from her past, Black decided to begin going by her middle name. Aboard the Copernicus, she performed well in the Tactical department. And was promoted to the position of CTO after only a few months. However after her last tour, she had to take a leave of absence for personal reasons.

When she returned to duty, she was reinstated with her rank of Lieutenant in the Tactical Department, and assigned to the USS Busan, but not in a command position.
Here she seemed to settle in better, serving two tours with no further issues, and was made Bravo Team Leader.

It was a few months later that she was informed that a position had become available aboard the USS Philadelphia, and she had been recommended for the role. The excitement of that posting lasted until she arrived. She found herself in what she thought of as a hostile environment. Not that the Philadelphia found itself in an engagement with the Tholians while in orbit of an alien world several light years away from Federation support, but because of other members of the crew. Her new CTO and CMO had both been part of the away team all those years ago when she had been under the influence of Romulan mind control, assassinated the Ambassador, and begun her career's downward spiral. It also didn't help that the First Officer took an instant dislike to her because of this.

After a successful return to Starbase Alpha however, while relaxing on the promenade, Black was recognised by the daughter of Ambassador Whitten, and without provocation, attacked by the woman. This lead to a stay in the medical facility for Black. Though this attack was unprovoked, Black chose to not press charges. Not long after being discharged, she received orders to transfer to the USS Aquila. At this time, Black was unaware that almost all of the Philadelphia's crew had been reassigned to the vessel, and was convinced it was because of the incident, and Starfleet just wanting to get her off station and out of the system to prevent any other incidents from occurring.

The Aquila was to deliver passengers to Deep Space Nine. These passengers then proceeded through the wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant. Next, the Aquila was sent a few days later to bring them back after discovering survivors from the combined Cardassian / Romulan taskforce that had attacked the homeworld of the Dominion almost twenty years ago. Upon returning back to DS9, Black unfortunately had a rather large bar bill to cover at Quark's that she had accrued during the festive period, so she entered into an agreement with the management that whenever she was aboard the station she was to work at least three shifts as a dabogirl until the tab was cleared.

She was also given a sideways promotion by Starfleet to the Operations Manager role of the ship as well as the administrative head of the Science Department before she and the majority of the Aquila's crew were transferred back to the USS Philadelphia. Once they'd shipped out again, they were informed they would be part of a joint mission with the USS Artemis. It was also at this time she discovered that her new department consisted of only one other extremely junior officer. As it turned out, their initial role in the joint mission was to simply taxi a small group of Artemis officers to their mission objective and return to another location to await further orders. However, things did not go to plan.


Black was reinstated as Chief Tactical Officer, and the Philadelphia was tasked with locating and boarding a Cardassian freighter, which had entered Federation space on its way back to Cardassian space containing Federation citizens being held against their will. They were successful in their goal. The citizens were rescued, but at great loss. The Philadelphia was badly damaged, possibly irredeemably. And the crew were taken into custody by the taskforce sent to recover and apprehend them before being returned to DS9 to await their fates...
