|Personal History||Dove had a very happy childhood filled with a number of adventures due to the mobile nature of her mother’s job. She was very quick to make new friends and rarely stayed in contact with the old ones. Often, her father managed the schooling for both her and her younger brother. When attending an organized school, Dove normally found the classes repetitive and boring and would regularly be sent out of class due to her disruptions.
As she grew older, she became less disruptive once she discovered that she could study ahead during classes if the subject matter was a repeat. Occasionally, her study material was inappropriate for her age; but she was rarely caught.
At fourteen, Dove decided to be a veterinarian after finding an injured dog-like animal on a nature hike with her brother. They managed to help the animal back to their home and nursed it back to full health with the help and instruction of a local veterinarian. Once the animal was again healthy, the owner was found after they recognized a picture posted at the market square. Inspired by that experience, Dove invested her energy to studying biology. However, dissections of animals completely turned her stomach and so she began exploring other interests.
Computers and mechanical engineering became her next obsession as she found the need to access information not readily available to her through the school channels. Eventually, she applied to Wryabeck’s School of Engineering and Technology, Starfleet Academy Engineering division, as well as the Trlll Symbiosis Commission
She was accepted to all of the programs she had applied and after weighing her options, she decided on the Starfleet route. She always enjoyed the transient lifestyle her mother’s profession provided and Starfleet was always on the move. Dove began schooling at the Academy shortly after her eighteenth birthday and completed additional requirements for the TSC concurrently. She often traveled to the Trill Homeworld during school holidays, completely engaged in the selection process.
Beyond her engineering studies, Dove also participated in several extracurricular activities. She was a part of the Archery team and joined Track and Field. For the first two years, she also was in the Model UFP, though she dropped that club once her studies became more demanding.
|Service Record||Dove completed Starfleet Academy’s Advanced Engineering program at the age of 26 and received her first assignment to the USS Virginia. She served on that ship until recently when she was reassigned to the USS Trident. Her brief, yet successful career on the Virginia earned her the privileged title of Chief Engineer upon her assignment.|
