Personal History

Early Life

Originating from St. Petersburg, as the sole child of Yosef and Volkova Winters. Her father initially worked for an independant shipping contractor that offered logistical support to remote colony establishment. It proved lucrative and offered networking in remote settlements. His dedication to his work had lasting consequences on his relationship with his daughter. Her mother was a historian and author of a number of papers on the earliest years of the Federation, but on Natalya’s birth, Volkova paused her career in order to devote time to her daughter.

Natalya’s father, Yosef Winters, along with a number of wealthy investors bid successfully for the survey rights for the Safrion System under the corporate name of the Safrion Geological Survey. Those survey rights, issued by the Federation passed on the responsibility for survey and recovery of any mineral deposits on behalf of the UFP.

The first expedition involved a pair of survey ships; the Helio’s and the Patience, and cost the Safrion Geological Survey two thirds of their annual budget. Within weeks the ships were slowly progressing through the Safrion System. Six months later initial surveys indicated the possibility of ore deposits, by eight months that first expedition had been bolstered by an advanced survey vessel, the Elena, risking what little remained of the expeditions capital. Within a year the expedition had uncovered rich deposits of Dilithium, heralding the evolution of the Safrion Geological Survey into the Safrion Initiative.

What started as a small expeditionary fleet for survey and recovery of minerals soon became the most significant corporate entity within the Safrion System, changing the course of the systems economic future.The Initiatives investment in mineral rights within the Safrion System has provided significant financial returns for their investors, and proved a valuable source of Dilithium for the Federation. The Initiative employed its wealth to bid for the continued access to these mineral rights. The controlling shareholder has been publically listed as Yosef Winters.

The family’s wealth has been directly connected to the Safrion Initiative. However, the subject of Natalya’s enlistment in Starfleet was met with opposition from her father, who alternatively had envisaged her involvement in the Safrion Initiative. This choice remains an issue of contention.

Natalya’s teenage years were spent between the survey ship Helio’s and Janus Terminal, a small staging area for survey and mining vessels under the Initiatives banner. Janus Terminal was the principal facility for starships departing the system with shipments of dilithium crystals, and a series of geological labs and accommodation blocks supporting the endeavours of the Initiative. Growing up on Janus Terminal kindled a passion in Natalya for the frontiers of discovery; each day brought news of something new. By the time she was eighteen she had received an informal apprenticeship in the world of deep space surveying.

Volkova Winter’s (Natalya’s Mother) was employed as a teacher to the children of surveyors and miners residing within Janus Terminal (making her the only teacher in a weeks travel of the Safrion System). Whilst she was passionate about teaching history, the frontier meant she taught a breadth of subjects, and to her own confession, some better than others.

At nineteen under the directive of her father, Natalya returned to Earth to observe operations in the Initiatives headquarters, as they sought to lobby officials of the Federation for the renewal of their survey rights. He believed it would prove invaluable experience. Whilst she returned to Earth, she did not return to St. Petersburg, choosing instead to reside in Paris.

A year later news arrived to Earth of an explosion on Janus Terminal. Whilst the facility was not compromised, it sustained significant damage alongside the deaths of seventeen residents. Among this number included Natalya’s mother, Volkova Winters. Responsibility was claimed by a small movement of militant environmentalists who later would publish a manifesto against her father's work. The immediate aftermath threw Natalya into grief, and whether rational or not, a blaming of her father’s work for the death of her mother. Soon after the news of the death of Volkova Winters, Natalia severed connections with her father and moved to San Francisco. Though Yosef writes regularly, those correspondence go unanswered.

Whilst in San Francisco Natalya stayed for the next six months with her uncle, Yolkin Winter’s (younger brother to her father Yosef) who was preparing to serve within Starfleet’s Exploratory Division. He is now considered the closest link to home for Natalya. Within months, at the age of twenty, she had followed in his footsteps enlisting for Starfleet. The promise of a career as a commissioned officer offered what she needed most… a new beginning.

Academy Life

Natalya’s first two years in the academy were devoted to her studies in Federation Law, with a keen interest in criminal law, and a introduction into forensic science. As she refined the scope of her studies the theory of criminology naturally expressed itself, alongside the practicalities of advanced phaser training. It has been noted by her instructors that Natalya’s focuses have aligned themselves to make her more suited to the judge advocate’s office or law enforcement employing investigative skills and public services, than to the cold face of battlefield. Whilst she is proficient in standard weapons handling, it’s noted that these scorings were significantly lower than the class average.

Whilst at the Academy Natalya was also known for having an interest in her mothers case, and some particularly her instructors in forensic science highlighted a tendency to apply theoretical skills in their lectures to that specific case. It is believed that Natalya keeps briefed on the local investigation.

It was also at the Academy that she met Cdt. Jessica Shilt whom she shared quarters with.
