Personal History

2367: Jay’s mother Jarnoo, a Bajoran female,16 years old, was taken by force from Bajor, to Cardassia Prime during the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. The occupation ended in 2369. Jarnoo was indentured to an older Obsidian Order officer, Ebran D’Mar. Ebran was kind to Jarnoo but he could be violent with her if she stepped out of line, which he did on at least two occasions. She was afraid of him.

2371: A treaty was signed with Bajor and that same year the Obsidian Order collapsed after a failed attempt to stop a Dominion invasion. Ebran was reassigned to the military and Cardassia began its downward slide into anarchy.

2373: Ebran proposed marriage to Jarnoo now 22 years old and out of fear and pure survival instinct she reluctantly agreed. She never loved him but she had nowhere else to go.

2374: Ebran and Jarnoo’s marriage was a marriage of convenience for Jarnoo, at least she was safe and alive. The following year the Dominion annexed Cardassia and attempted a complete genocide of Cardassia, Ebran was killed. Jarnoo, now pregnant was left to beg and hide from the Dominion. A resourceful woman, left to fend for herself, she kept herself and her new born infant alive in the ruins of Cardassia.

2376: Cardassia was plagued with death and disease after such long periods of war. In the midst of this tragedy, Jarnoo scrounged a living for her child and herself. Jarnoo sacrificed all her moral fibre to save her child and eventually had a plan of escape. She kept the D’Mar name so as not to forget the atrocities the Cardassians perpetrated on her home world, Bajor.

Jarnoo, with her immoral gains, bought passage with people smugglers promising escape from Cardassia, on a very old freighter call the “Gen-rex” The “Gen-rex” was full of fleeing Cardassians, who disagreed with the current regime and their policies.

The USS Sydney, investigating an explosion on the Federation side of Cardassian border found the debris field of the “Gen-rex” with twelve survivors in various escaped pods, a minor incident in the history of the galaxy. Jarnoo and Jay with the other surviving refugees were taken to a processing camp on Bajor. It took a year before they were released.

Growing up on Bajor, Jay suffered the stigma of looking too much like a Cardassian. The Bajorians had not forgotten the 59-year Cardassian occupation of Bajor. Jay often asked her mother to tell her about her time on Cardassia but her mother always refused to speak of it. She told Jay angrily one day when she was aged 6 that she was never to ask again. And they never spoke of Cardassia from that day. Curious as she is, Jay always wondered about her personal history and that of her mother’s early life on Cardassia, if she too suffered prejudice because she was a Bajoran on Cardassia, because she looked differed. She planned to research their history at some time in the future.

Jay hated wars. As she grew older she turned her attention to something more constructive, engineering. She also became interested in Star Fleet, with DS 9 so close.

2384: At age 9 she had a better understanding of engineering than some junior engineers and she continued her reading. She was a bright and intelligent student at school so a teacher once described Jay.

2394: Jay entered university on Bajor at age 19 to study engineering just as the Krynar attacked. She remembers nothing of the Krynar attack and destruction of Bajor. Life went on as normal. Bajor reappeared, having been shifted three years ahead in time by ‘The Prophets’ so most Bajoran’s believed. According to Bajorans on the planet at the time, only minutes had elapsed.

During her time at University she met a Bajoran with no predigest towards her because of the way she looked. His name was Jardeen, Jarvis. There was no time for romance in Jay’s life but they became very good friends.

2398: Jay graduate with honours in Engineering. She had spent some time on DS 9 during her studies and became enthralled with Star Fleet. So, before she graduated she applied to Star Fleet Academy and was accepted

2399 - 2403: Graduating from the Bajoran university Jaya immediately travelled to earth and studies at Star Fleet Academy and graduated as a Star Fleet Engineer and was eventually assigned to her first ship
