Amarande Xiiv - Reporting in 05 September 2021
« on: September 05, 2021, 03:42:26 am »
Welcome to the Tenth Fleet, and thank you for you interest. Please (re)post your application below. However, for the sake of brevity, please amend the application account for the following:

- For the sake for fairness to other new players, your starting rank will be Ensign, which is the standard for Commissioned applicants. Whilst we very much acknowledge past experience (IC and OOC), the grace period of honouring previous ranks has come to a close. We hope this isn't seen as a negative development, nor one that will take much time to resolve.

- Department Head (Chief) roles are assigned through merit via participation. However, we have agreed that in the interim, your character can fill the position of Assistant CMO if that is acceptable.

And there are bold soldiers.

CURRENT HOST
Amarande Amara

Born on Vulcan to unknown mother and father, adopted with younger twin brother by Vulcan Ambassador to Trill, M'riyat, and Xenobiologist Gentan who had two children of their own already. Early on she had talents for the Sciences and a keen sense of empathy for other living beings. Her vivacious, bright and bubbly nature wasn't frowned upon so much as it was gently encouraged to flourish elsewhere in her life than within the realm of academics. Every educational challenge she met and excelled in but her favourites were Science and Linguistics. She figured that learning a language without a universal translator was better than needing to rely on one. After all, there were new aliens out there whose languages wouldn't be in the catalogue. Amarande decided that if her mouth could make it, she'd learn it. If it couldn't, she'd find a way to learn it. It didn't matter what the science subject was, she was enthralled but astrophysics, mathematics, and medicine (from herbology to medicinal practices across cultures and species) were her early favourites.

In transit to Trill, their diplomatic transport vessel was hijacked by terrorists, leaving dozens critically injured during the attack. The doctor on board, Elisa Trent and the medical staff were severely understaffed as many of the personnel injured were their own staff. Trent enlisted young Amarande's aid to stabilise as many injured as possible before proper aid could arrive in the form of Starfleet assistance. Amarande continued to assist the injured, staying by the medical personnel's sides, watching and learning, eyes wide with fascination. When they lost several of the crew to trauma too advanced and beyond the capabilities of even the Federation's medical teams, it began her decades-long love affair with medicine and was the flashpoint for her perfectionism when it came to the treatment of alien species' traumatic injuries.

She immediately began courses in emergency medical procedures, even if her "patients" were holographic in nature. Amarande learned at light speed, never satisfied with her results, always adding more casualties, different kinds of wounds, replicating the hijacking victims over and over trying to save them in and around regular coursework and through several different programs as a medic. Her efforts paid off as her dedication was noticed when her application to become a Symbiont candidate was received - her reasons for wanting to be Joined were not only the preservation of knowledge but a driving need to further her own knowledge in medicine and the preservation of life itself. She was more than just bright, she had the spark the selection committee had been looking for. Xiiv was chosen for her symbiont because each of their previous hosts had the same sort of pioneering spirit and drive that resonated so strongly with the 19yr old's keen need. Not only would Amarande give Xiiv's long line of fascinating characters' legacies life, she'd add to them with her own accomplishments and feats - wherever they took her.

Joined to Symbiont Xiiv pretty much three hours into her 20th birthday, considered a rising star on her own with a talent for language, mathematics, astrophysics, and showed a high aptitude for medical theory with several courses in emergency medical intervention prior to her enrollment at Starfleet Medical with the express purpose of punching through Starfleet Medical as fast and as high scoring as possible. She started early and considered several research grants after applying at 18 and graduating Starfleet Medical at 25 with top honours in Xenobiology, specialising in surgical intervention across a wide range of species. Amarande found it wasn't enough to sate her own need to be more proficient and looked back several of her offers, one from a Vulcan Science vessel due to depart for its own research purposes.

Her leave from active service was approved by Starfleet Medical for the mission duration of 5yrs, then another 6yrs spent working with new species to aid in their adaptation into Starfleet life, culture, and health catalogues and surgical needs. She repeatedly denied promotion for that six-year period, preferring to work directly at that level so as not to intimidate them.

VULCAN AUXILIARY MEDICAL FLEET

Rather than begin serving aboard a Federation ship, she found herself taking a completely different path -  a posting with a Vulcan crew as their resident trauma surgeon. Their mission was to relieve war pressures in what could hardly be said a jaunt around space. It did mean she'd get non-stop practise on a staggering amount of war casualties from one conflict to another.

She took the lessons the mission gave her and embraced them, honing her skills in the medical field and expanding them each time she treated a new patient. Amarande also learned that she couldn't save everyone, even if she worked harder and faster than she ever had before. Not everyone was a win, not everyone could be pulled back from the brink of death. It was the way of things, of life, really.

It was a hard lesson to learn and she knows that the faces of the dead will haunt her until she learns to let their deaths go.

STARFLEET MEDICAL NEW SPECIES INITIATIVE PROGRAM

Piloted Special Surgical Needs for over 15 different new species, designing, building, and fitting implants, micro-ecosystem cultures, nano-implant solutions, and significantly speeding up the process of adaption to non-oxygenized species into primarily oxygen-rich habitats - like starships, medical bases, etc., etc. Previous work in artificial intelligence under Matenen helped pioneer several different kinds of A.I. assisted bio-implants that not only aided in medical efforts but also helped linguistically challenged species find their voices.

SAMPLE POST:

There was nothing quite like the sight of Trill's amethyst waters. As a child, they had been a wonder as they crashed ashore, so very different than anything on Vulcan. The sheer amount of humidity was exotic, the taste of the water on her tongue a strange other. Even the rain felt somehow more alien than her spots had been in a school of boys and girls with ears that were unlike her own rounded ones. Then and now were years apart and her orange flecked hazel eyes were older, far older, than they had been so many years prior. Xiiv's fingers brushed through her dark hair until she found the shock of white in it. Her mother, M'yriat, said it was a genetic trait, her father said it's where all her light got in and swung her around until she felt the world spun. It had made her laugh when she was younger and still knew better.

Who are you, Amarande?

It had been one of the first questions her mentor had asked her. She had been sure of who she was, what she wanted, how fast she wanted it.

I want life, all of it, to make the darkness into light, to ease the suffering in the universe, to share the joys and heartbreaks. I want to learn and know as much about life and death as I can.

Amarande was patient in some respects but she wanted knowledge like growing things wanted the rain, sun, earth, and wind. She wanted it with a ferocity that had waylaid most of her plans for Starfleet and pushed her in unexpected directions that challenged her to think and grow and learn. To become, even, who and what she felt she needed to become to be more than of service to Starfleet and the people who existed within it.

Where are you going, Amarande? Her mother's question sang in her blood, a proud question, a good question.

Forward. She was going forward again, in the direction she'd always been going. At 36, she was going to begin that climb but as she'd seen, promotion wasn't everything. Sometimes, it didn't help or it got in the way of something far more important. Not every step up the ladder was a good or right thing.

"Are you getting on this shuttle or not, Starfleet? It will depart very soon." Blinking in surprise, she glanced up at a very large, very tall Klingon, his shadow blocking the light of the midday sun. "If not, step aside, or you might wind up in water instead of space." She shifted her weight and made a face.

"Well, it's space I'm headed into again," she said, gesturing courteously for him to precede her. "Falling into the water hasn't been an option since I was eight and learned to swim." She was more than competent at that and every other challenge she'd met along the way. Rank was not a final challenge but it was in the way of everything else.

Her companion for the duration of their off-world launch laughed and she followed him in, finding the surface to spacedock shuttle somehow smaller than it usually was. It wasn't just because of the Klingon, either. Sure, she could have beamed up to the orbital station but the travel wasn't scenic. Maybe the space seemed smaller because she was leaving her brother behind to find his own dreams, still waiting for his symbiont, still frustrated but making his own way stubbornly forward. She set her carryall down, looking out at the bay once more until it became a glistening feature and then a planet.

Amarande left her family behind once more for the space between the stars as she sent off a message to Starfleet Command for her next mission. Who knew where she'd be tomorrow? But there was the pleasure of it - anywhere there was a ship, a station, an outpost the Federation touched.

And anywhere was a beautiful place with a beautiful view.

Thank you.  With those changes the character is accepted and assigned to Katra Station where she will be Assistant CMO under Lieutenant Commander Beja (on leave presently).   You can post in mission immediately while we set up your Academy training course.

After some discussion among the Admins, it has been decided that an Academy training is not necessary for Amarande.  Please report in to your Commanding officers -  Captain Solluk and Commander Saxon.
