History

Personal History Kenda was born in one of the bigger population centers on Andor. Her family clan was a prominent name in terms of military service, though has fallen on hard times in the 150 years Kenda has been trapped in a transporter. She was the only child to her her parental bondmates. Due to her clan’s status, she was given the best opportunities in education and martial training. Her family’s goal was to bring up a future starship Captain.

Playing the role of the good daughter, Kenda happily went about her studies and training. Because of her dedication, she never once missed a day in her entire upbringing. Her grades and abilities certainly showed that effort pays. Like all Andorians, her parent group was generally spread out and busy with their own ambitions. However, Kenda grew especially attached to her zhen mother, who stayed on Andor while the rest of the paret group carried out successful Starfleet careers. Kenda never held ill will toward them because that was the Andorian way.

As her maturity came around, Keda applied to Starfleet Academy in 2234. With this being her first time leaving Andor, she instantly saw fell in love with learning about the various cultures she came across on Earth. Seeing the value in speaking other languages, Kenda switched to the linguistics path to increase her future value as an officer. By 2238, Kenda graduated with honors.

Her first assignment was aboard the Walker-class, USS Chengdu. Kenda served as a communications officer and was instrumental in deciphering the languages of two long extinct species who shared the planet Heranius III. She also proved her worth to Starfleet as the Federation began to push its borders into unknown regions when she developed new algorithms to decode languages.

Because of her efforts, she was placed as a programmer in the design department for the upcoming USS Ishimura. Her job was to develop new software packages that could be used during extended missions for the new Constitution-class vessel. As a reward, she was awarded the Chief Communications Officer position aboard the Ishimura.

During her first year, the crew was tested and passed. The biggest complaint for Kenda was the loss of her left antenna when she mistranslated a sentence during a first contact away mission. However, the Ishimura was a doomed ship. Kenda and a few others managed to trap themselves in the transporter loop as a way to cheat certain death. It was there where they remained frozen in time for 150 years.
