Position Executive Officer
|Slender and lithe with typically Vulcan ears and eyes. Her expression is often unreadable, although like most of her kind she may offer a raised eyebrow to indicate reactions to things she finds noteworthy.
Earlier in her Starfleet career she lost her right leg during an away mission that encountered a hostile force. She was fitted with a biosynthetic replacement and spent the next several months doing physical therapy. Most people don't know unless she tells them. Despite this the prosthetic works just fine and she tends to walk with a quick, purposeful gait.
Personality & Traits
|T'Venderath is a calm and serene woman who carries herself with an air of confidence and natural grace. She speaks in a soft, feminine voice, but has no trouble affecting a strong, commanding tone when needed. To the casual observer she comes off as typically Vulcan: calm, unemotional, and unrelentingly logical.
|Strengths & Weaknesses
|Confident, decisive, and dedicated to duty. Unencumbered by human emotions. Not given to human cultural conventions such as humility or politeness. Can seem aloof at times. Definitely not a life-of-the-party type. Often requires a direct order to relax.
|Hobbies & Interests
|Vulcan meditation, archaeology, competitive swimming, music, stellar cartography, flying. Has an extensive collection of books, the old kind, made of paper.
She is also interested in the histories of the royal dynasties that ruled Vulcan millennia ago, and has been gathering research to go into a possible book.
Speaks standard Romulan with passable fluency.
|T'Venderath was born on the colony planet Sigma Draconis VII. It was a small enclave of only 20,000 people. Her parents were terraforming engineers. Their work was transforming the class-K world into class-M standard. They also had the distinction of being the first couple to be married on Sigma Draconis, after Solen underwent the Ponn Farr and asked T'Karra to be bonded to him. It was logical as she was the only Vulcan female on the planet. T'Venderath was born soon after. She was named for her mother's mother, who had passed away many years before.
Home on Sigma Draconis was peaceful and prosperous. The only danger they knew was the environment outside, where the air was thin and the heat in the summer was bad enough to blister skin if exposed for more than 30 minutes. Her earliest memories were of running around and playing in a bulky, cumbersome spacesuit that she disliked because it prevented her from running as fast as she could. Even by Vulcan standards the planet was a furnace. She grew up watching the world around her transform from a barren landscape into one with a thriving ecosystem.
A visit from a Starfleet vessel, the USS Valour, first ignited her interest in Starfleet. Her father, who had served for a few years as an engineering officer, encouraged the interest. When she was of age she applied to the Academy and was accepted.
She graduated with a major in Xenoanthropology and a minor in Theoretic Engineering. She also successfully completed Command and Advanced Bridge Officer Qualification training. Her initial assignment was to the USS Steadfast.
|USS Steadfast NCC-79225: First duty assignment as junior helmsman. Her tour of duty was cut short when she was wounded during an away mission, necessitating amputation of her right leg. She spent four weeks in recovery at Starbase 1125. A biosynthetic limb was grafted in by base surgeons. She was reassigned to shore duty upon successful completion of her physical therapy.
Regulus V Fleet Yards: Systems and Flight Test Operations Manager for Pre-Commissioning Units Spartan and Persistence. Participated in the design team of the Baikal-class scout shuttle.
USS Polaris NX-92700: Served as one of several lead project engineers for the next generation of deep-space exploration vessel. When the ship commissioned into the fleet she was assigned as the ship's Chief Operations Officer.
Sicyon Station Deep Space Observatory: Assigned as First Officer to this desolate science outpost far outside Federation space. A skeleton crew and lots of quiet time gave her the opportunity to begin her research on ancient Vulcan.
USS Endurance NCC-86525: Starfleet Academy training vessel. She served aboard as a Cadet Advisor.
