Personal History Desiana was born in 2356. She is the second of three children. Her oldest sister was the prodigy if her family, leaving for college and graduate school on Earth at the early age of 16. Where most would have wilted in the shadow of her siblings, Dezzy thrives. She was able to set her own expectations and develop her own interests.

Where her brother and sister were expected to follow a predestined path, Dezzy was able to cultivate her fascination for other races and cultures. From their art to literature to mating rituals. This desire to meet other cultures motivated her to enlist in Star Fleet. Although her scores were high enough to warrant her access to the Academy, in unwillingness to wait 4 years was the determining factor..

Originally Dezzy intended to go into the medical field but found the entrance exam too challenging to secure the position she wanted. Not feeling defeated since not everyone can be good at everything; she tried for other positions, finding her home in Linguistics. She was soon starting on her eighteen month stint in basic training and AIT.

Dezzy used her time after her training. to spend as much time around other races as she could. She quickly picked up working knowledge of the multiple languages which came in handy when transferring post.

Dezzy was assigned as a Lingustic officer on board the USS Strasberg. Being on board the Miranda Class vessel wasn’t as exciting as she has hoped. With no change in command or structure of her department her first promotion didn’t come until the approval of her transfer request to the USS Colton.

Within two months at her new post on the USS Colton Dezzy caught the attention of the Executive Office. Her took her under his wind and began grooming her to one day take over as the department head for the Science department.

In 2385, their rumored relationship was brought under the microscope when the CO was altered to the possibility of favoritism between the XO and Dezzy. Although both sides denied and such relationship existed, Dezzy’s flirtatious nature did little to cool the flames of suspicion. After a six month battle it was determined neither party was guilty of any inappropriate actions.

To protect her friend’s secret and career Dezzy put in for a transfer for the first department head position that came available to her. She was transferred to the USS Crimson.

Her time on the USS Crimson gave her time to focus on her position. She worked diligently and was quickly chosen as the Assistance Science Officer. Her newly found ambition urged her to apply for a department head position. She was transferred to the USS Calypso with her chosen position, ready to begin her new posting.
