Personal History

Childhood and adolescence

Cait, the Caitian homeworld in the Ferasa system is a strange world to grow up on. V'Zara is the daughter and only child of K'tarrela member and former diplomat to Vulcan, R'Garlo. R'Garlo knew, after his wife died in a terrorist attempt on his own life, that he could not protect his five year old daughter all the time, so he had his assistant take her to a militia training camp, where she was educated and trained in the Caitian style of combat. This meant she was trained to move like a cat and fight with her claws, as well as basic weapons. But V'Zara, didn't think combat was her way so when her father's assistant taught her some tricks with the computer, she was delighted and took to it right away. When her father offered her a chance to go to Starfleet as a representative of the Caitian culture, V'Zara jumped at it and quickly joined the enlisted program and later, the NCO operations program.

 

2375: Starfleet Academy

Skilled with computers, V'Zara also learned that she liked helping others with their work and was good at taking messages and dictation. She flew through Basic Training at Starfleet and was asked by several of her basic combat instructors why she wouldn't go into security. She told them it was because war was not her way

2376: USS Kansas V'Zara was assigned to the USS Kansas upon completion of Basic Training to give her her space legs. The later part of 2375, when she was first assigned, was spent patroling the Sol Star system. The small ship, a Nova Class science vessel, then spent the better part of 2376 cataloguing gaseous anomalies.
2377: Starfleet Academy V'Zara, after being promoted to Crewman from Apprentice, returned to the Academy to take her advanced NCO training. She did very well in this program too and was asked several times why she hadn't gone through the commisioned officers training. To which her reply was, someone has to keep the ship running. When her course was over, V'Zara transfered back to her homeworld.
2378-2379
Cait Starfleet Offices

V'Zara's superior officers were very impressed with the way she handled her tasks on her new assignment. She proved herself loyal, trustworthy and a very hard, independant worker. She worked so hard that by the end of her apprenticeship on Cait, she was working for the senior most officer at the Offices, JAG Commander Marsh, who thought the young Caitian did stellar work. When he heard that there was an opening aboard the USS Swiftsure, he was the one that made the transfer request on V'Zara's behalf. V'Zara was excited and her father proud that she would be representing her race in space.

2379- 2384

V'Zara was accepted to the Swiftsure as Captain's Yeoman and promoted to PO3, much to her delight. She married the human of her dreams in December 2383.

2380-2382

The USS Swiftsure is reported missing with all hands early in 2380. The ship reappeared early in 2383 in orbit of Earth after a temporal jump of 3 years. **Details classified**

In April 2384 CPO V'Zara asked for her transfer to Operations and joined the officers' ranks as Materials Officer, Lt JG.
A few months later she gave birth to four children.
