Jourdan also has a weakness of panicking when something goes wrong that shouldn't be, she has learnt to overcome this when someone is in danger but it still stays deep down inside her.
Ambitions Jourdan joined Starfleet woth a few ambitions, she didn't want to command a ship of her own like everyone else. She wanted to get stuck in with the technology and keep the ship running and develop new technology one day. She doesn't see herself as a command figure so her main ambition is to do her job and keep her ship running.

Personal History Jourdan was born in the small town of Rothwell on the outskirts of the british city of Leeds to Thomas and Abigail Abbott. She was the oldest of two children living in the household, her sister was five years three then her. Jourdan lived the ordinary life at home will she was old enough to go to school.

At school Jourdan became fascinated with the technology and wanted to learn more about it. She would read complicated books when she was seven or eight guessing what some of the words meant. Her mother and father who had no Starfleet Background were impressed and tried to help her with the technical language.

At the age of eight years old Jourdan climbed a tree in the local park and got stuck unable to get down. Jourdan was stuck in the tree for three hours crying until her father found her and managed to help her down. This was the day that Jourdan discovered she was afraid of heights and falling.

Jourdan wasn't a straight A student like most future Starfleet officers but she was intelligent, she hated taking exams as she found them difficult and thought they were a waste of time and she much prefered practical exercises. She did graduate primary education with a special award in science and technology which she had taken a big interest in.

Skipping off to High School with the grades tucked under her belt she soon found that the work was a lot harder. Jourdan was subjected to bullying from jealous students who weren't as intelligent as her. She was pushed around for five years whic made hr grades slip a little. However when she got a good spread of results in her secondary education, (Straight B's and A's) she decided that she might be good enough to go into Starfleet, the first one in her family to go into space. She saw this as an adventure and set her eyes on becoming a operations officer.

Her first entry was refused and she had to wait an entire year before reapplying. Luckily she was accepted the second time and she packed her bags at the age of seventeen and bid goodbye to her parents before heading off to San Francisco to start her Starfleet Training. She signed up for the Starship Operations course at Starfleet Academy.

She enjoyed Operations course and after a visit with the class to the San Francisco Fleet Yards she had an idea that she wanted to be starship builder or designer. However after months of hard work she changed her mind to becoming an Operations offcer. After four years at the academy and the age of twenty one she graduated in the top twenty per cent of the class and majors in Operations and Technology.

Awaiting assignment wasn't long for Jourdan and was soon scooped up by the USS Pudsey a newly built Nebula Class. At the rank of Ensign she was a junior ops officer. She liked her first assignment as it took her to new worlds and new civilizations, also she was going where none of her family had been before which made her feel special.

The USS Pudsey was a good start for Jourdan and she spent five years on the ship, until she was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade and was reassigned to the USS Liverpool as the Assistant Chief Ops officer on the Sovereign Class ship. The USS Liverpool was one of the ships that had a unique history fighting in the dominion war and her captain became a good friend.

Captain Pollard knew Jourdans father back on Earth from school and he had a soft spot for Jourdan. It soon became apparent that the captain of the Liverpool was actually jealous of Jourdans father as they both fought over Jourdan mother back in high school, so he went out of his way to make sure that Jourdan was safe and ok in battle. Feeling she was being protected and always had someone looking over her shoulder Jourdan packed her bags once more and requested a new assignment.

Jourdan was told there was a Chief Engineer spot open on the USS Calypso and even though she was in the Operations Department she could easily transfer over to the Engineering Department. Accepting this Jourdan decided to give Engineering a try, she afterall had spent long amounts of time in Engineering previous.
