Engineering Officer in search of a ship - FILLED

Post by JJohnson » Sat Jan 21, 2017 7:03 am

Hi everyone,

I have another character, a new one, looking for a ship

Name: Nicole Taggert
Race: Human
Homeworld: Earth
Age: 24 (physical age is 21)
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 123 lb
Hair/Eyes: Blonde/Blue
Physical Description: Nicci is curvy, and physically fit

Personality
Nicci is generally a happy person till she thinks about what happened at Bellringer, which saddens her every time. She gets very enthusiastic when talking about her hobbies, like Americana, cars, engineering, or 20th century television shows and movies.

Hobbies & Interests
Nicci likes tinkering, be it with antique cars on Earth, with building block toys or transforming robots, or with ship's systems to get better performance, she likes to keep her hands busy. She also likes reading engineering journals, hiking on the holodeck, reliving the past (she has a big Americana collection of old things), cooking and eating.

Nicci eats a lot, but her body burns it off more easily than regular humans. She loves racing old muscle cars, or even playing at Gundam in the holodeck. But she more often than not will be hoking in the Appalachians on the holodeck or back on Earth.

Ambitions
Nicci wishes she could have her old self back, but is growing comfortable in her own skin. She wants to be the best engineer in the fleet, and one day design her own ship class.

Service Record

2386 - entered Starfleet Academy in engineering program;
2390 - graduated top of her class in engineering, with a focus in warp theory; served for 6 months in Sector 001 at Utopia Planitia
2391 (June) - on a shuttle, she was kidnapped and taken to the Orion 'Bellringer' station, where she got a DNA graft that completely altered her appearance, intending to be sold on the market. She was rescued by Starfleet and took a leave to undergo counseling for the ordeal
2392 - reported fit for duty

Personal History
Nicci grew up in a loving household and showed an aptitude early on for building things and figuring out how things work. She built with LEGO and other building toys, built model starships and model cars, and grew into more active sports like Tae Kwon Do and hiking, while also keeping up with academics, graduating in the top 5% of her high school class, and top of her engineering class at the academy. She visited other planets as a kid, which helped solidify her decision to join Starfleet, visiting New Germany, New Russia, and New Nordland. She joined up and made it to graduate top of her class.

The tragedy struck when her shuttle was attacked and the people stolen by a rogue group of Orions who had made their base at the Bellringer station, a genetic research facility long abandoned. Several dozen were experimented on, finding the right appearances so the Orions could sell them as 'pleasure slaves.' Faces changed, bodies changed, even genders changed on that station to the horror of those experiencing it. After getting a DNA graft and going through the pain of that change, soon after, Starfleet rescued everyone, but the station was destroyed before they could recover everyone's old DNA profiles to try to cure them. After several months of therapy and learning to cope with the new body she had, Nicci was declared fit to return to duty, and is now awaiting assignment to a starship, a few months late.

Her body, as far as she has found out, needs to eat more, but also doesn't really gain weight in the usual places. It's surprisingly flexible as well. When she gets on a problem in engineering, she can sometimes zone out, but that's just her brain working through the solution fast enough that she can 'see' the solution right in front of her.

For a visual, see 'Zienna Eve'
