Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Veronica is a skilled pilot and a loyal Starfleet officer. She joined Starfleet with the goal of living out a childhood dream to explore new worlds. Early in her career, she learned of an aptitude for flying. She has had a great deal of training in a wide array of vehicles, ranging from single pilot fighters up to cruisers.
Upon joining the USS Artemis, she expanded her skill set to the full range of Tactical Station responsibilities. By the time she left, she was as adept at the tactical station as the helm station.
Veronica is a particularly cheerful individual, usually maintaining a positive attitude even in the face of danger. However, she has a very rough time dealing with authoritarians. This has proven to be her main issue with diplomatic situations. She can handle most cultures with ease, but responds very poorly to bullies.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
+ Extremely skilled pilot and tactical officer, with wide range of vehicles
+ Generally pretty good at diplomatic situations
+ Some command training
+ Skilled marksman with most energy weapons
+ Strong swimmer
+- Works extremely hard, often to the detriment of her personal life
+- Good at making friends, bad at keeping them
- Not very physically strong, easily outclassed in melee combat
- Has difficult time controlling temper around bullies/tyrants
|Ambitions||Veronica has her sights set on climbing the command chain, though perhaps not to Captain. Her personal life has taken a backseat to her career goals.
Veronica aims to be the best officer she can be to hopefully gain the attention of her superiors.
|Hobbies & Interests||Veronica is an avid reader, reading the major authors of the major Federation species as well as some outside the Federation. She frequents the holodeck on scuba diving programs or piloting ancient fighter jets.|
|Personal History||Born on the sunny coasts of Los Angeles, Veronica lived a fairly easy life. Her father operated a local marina, renting out watercraft to the the tourists who visited. Her mother was an adviser to the diplomatic wing of the Federation Council.
From a young age, Veronica had an interest in space, often accompanying her mother up to Spacedock for meetings and gazing longingly at the newest Starfleet ships. Her brother joined Starfleet ahead of her, going off to serve on the USS Halcyon. Veronica chose to follow him to the Acadamy.
Unfortunately, during an extended tour as Cadet aboard the Akira Class USS Jakarta, Veronica's mother died of an undiagnosed respiratory disease. Veronica was not home in time to say goodbye, something she has regretted ever since. Her younger sister chose to follow her mother, and became an aide to the Federation Council.
Veronica tried to earn top marks on her pilot training, hoping to get a good assignment. That being said, she is well aware of her sheltered upbringing. Most of her assignments have been very brief postings of just a few weeks. In fact, her 8 month post on the Jakarta was the longest she has ever been away from Earth. Though Starfleet made every effort to give her a wide variety of piloting training, this short posting style didn't really give her psychological training for being away from Earth for an extended period of time.
She grew over this weakness during her deployment aboard the USS Artemis, branching out to become her own person.
