Personal History Lexia Aylin was born on earth into a rather normal family. She had an older brother, Julian, who had been born three years before her. When she was younger, she wanted to follow him around, be near him all the time. If anything, she was clingy. Julian didn’t mind until he started school and started to make friends.

This caused Lex to become extremely introverted very early. With her brother now hanging out with friends and classmates, he didn’t have much time for her at all. Although her parents attempted to give her more attention, it didn’t seem to help.

School started rough for Lex, as she wasn’t social. She was tested for any type of developmental or social issues, but everything came back normal. She was just introverted. It wasn’t until she got closer to middle school that she managed to actually start being social and make friends.

The rest of school was fairly normal. Lexi found an interest in swimming and volleyball, and played those sports throughout school. This kept her fit physically and made her feel like she was included as part of a team. But she also found herself laying in her backyard nearly every night she could to stargaze. It was calming, relaxing.

When she heard about Starfleet, she looked into it as much as she possibly could. She spent her last year of high school improving her grades enough to even be allowed to go through the entrance exams. There was something about going out into space and studying the stars close up that fascinated her.

The Academy was harder than she thought it would be, and although Lex excelled at the courses in science, any other skills were lacking. She was a decent shot with a phaser, okay at putting things back together if they were broken. Nothing medical except treating scrapes. But, it was enough to get through at the middle of her graduating class.

With no interest to start being assigned to a ship, Lexia decided she was more apt for lab work. Finding a position with Starfleet Science, she remained on Earth for the next four years from graduation. With her work, her superiors decided she was worthy of a promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade.

Growing slightly bored of life on Earth as well as lab work, Lex found an opening for sensor research and development on one of the Mars teams. She enjoyed the work of getting her hands dirty. Not only was she able to work on the creation of the new sensors and help install them into ships, she was able to test them out once they were on the ships, going for short stints on the ships. Not as an actual assigned member of the crew, but as one who was making sure everything went okay on shake down missions.

There was no more than a month of two on any given ship, so she remained assigned to Mars Colony Research for another four years. However, after all this work, it seemed Command and Earth wanted her back.

Earth’s long range sensor teams had used upgrades that Lexia and her team had worked on, and now they needed a new chief. Not one to deny herself another new opportunity, she took the position and continued to work on research as she did so. However, she was in charge of alerting to any dangers that might come up, be it ship or stellar phenomenon. With her work: she was granted the rank of Lieutenant Commander, having made full Lieutenant while on Mars.

A chance came up for a command of a science vessel. However, Lex hadn’t finished her command training and hadn’t really thought about it. Though she would have loved being on a science vessel, command at the time was not her interest. Not only that, they wanted her to push through the command training she had to finish quicker than she wanted, so she turned down the offer. This allowed her to continue on Earth for a time.

The itch for traveling on a ship finally hit, after all of her research work. When a ship docked on Earth, she noticed an opening for a chief science officer, and jumped at the chance. What she didn’t realize is that the position also came with being assigned second officer. Not that she minded, as she was finally out in space where she felt she belonged now. She was also able to complete her command training.

With the ship taking a deep space assignment, Lexia decided she didn’t want to be out that far and when they docked at Starbase 375, she said her goodbyes and found temporary housing until another assignment became available. Little did she know that the place she called home just ten years earlier would soon be in danger...
