Personal History

Personal History Lahtikah Jean was born in Mumbai, India, Earth on August 28th to Jean Phoenix and Madhur Patil. She was the baby of the family, as she had a brother named Omar who was ten years older than her, and a sister named Tanvi who was five years older. Her parents treated her like a princess, especially because the family was very wealthy.

Her father, Mudhur owns Patil Galactic Software, a promonent company that produced techologies for starfleet computer systems, while her mother was a Starfleet officer employed by the office of the Judge Advocate General.

She grew up getting everything she wanted whenever she wanted it. As she grew into a teenager, she developed into a very beautiful and inteligent young lady. She was so beautiful that she learned quickly it made her the envy of every girl she met. She used this, becoming the most popular girl in school. She was the queen bee...God help anyone who decided to cross her.

The truth is, in high school, she didn't do much of her homework, deligating the task to...lesser individules. She worked on her grades as much as possible between the parties and boys, and she applied for Starfleet Academy at her parents' urging.

She entered in Operations, and was very disapointed to see that the few parties that occured in the Academy were very...dull. She and her friends decided instead that it was best to leave campus every other night and attend parties outside the grounds.

Maintaining her grades in the Academy with her social life was not nearly as easy as it was in High School, and in her sophomore year, she nearly flunked out. But, she got her act together quickly and graduated well within the range of a normal student.

Her career in the academy was a long, difficult journey. It pushed her to the limit as she slowly learned to accept authority. When she graduated, she was a stronger, and more rounded person.

She was posted on the USS Istanbul as an Operations Officer. Tika came to enjoy her role and worked very hard as she always had. Though she had always been extremely attractive, she found it very strange that professional starfleet officers made passes at her so often. After 4 years of the same post, and relatively no ship battles, Tika was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade.

Her next assignment was a short lived one as Assistant Chief of Operations aboard the USS Enterprise D. After the ship was destroyed, she took her next assignment.

Her third posting was on the USS Stallion. She served there as the gamma shift operations officer for just under 3 mouths. The incident that prompted her promotion to a higher position was not a happy one in the slightest. It was her first mission, a mission of peace. The Stallion was attempting to keep the peace with the Cardasians. Tika was forced to spend most of her time in the background, since the Chief Ops Officer would take over whenever something exciting started to happen. She started to wonder why she had to play second best when her grades and flight scores were better than her department head's. She eventually got her chance to shine, just not in the way she'd hoped. A massive attack from a Cardasian Warship Killed the Bridge crew. Tika came to the Bridge to find the entire senior staff dead over their consoles.She decided that she only had two options: Wait for someone to take over and slump back into was the easier option, or take command and save her fellow crew members with all the gory that would entail. She chose the latter. She assumed the role of Acting Captain, and destroyed two Keldon class warships, giving the last one a warning. Before she ordered the Stallion back to Federation space, Gul Dulak, the Commander of the remaining Cardasian ship, swore revenge on her. fleeing to safety without a single additional casualty. This show of courage impressed the promotion board almost as much as it impressed her and she was promoted to Lieutenant and assigned as Chief Operations Officer and Second Officer on the USS Paladin.

She served on the Paladin for only 2 weeks, finding a way to bring their cloaking device to life, but as the Paladin returned from the delta quadrant, it was in shambles, and she decided to take a new assignment. Sen's Photo Directory
