Personal History Katana grew up with a crazy heritage. One Klingon and the other Betazoid and both making her life miserable. Her mother, being an ambassador to the Klingon homeworld, disobeyed her parent's wishes by marrying her father. When her father left Betazed, he took her mother with him and presented the union to the High Council. At first it was looked on unfavorably but with the announcement that a child was on the way, and after a great deal of debate, Katana's mother was accepted as Klingon still holding on to her ambassadorial status. Katana was born 4 years later in 2353 on Q'onoS.

Katana grew up between two different heritages and it was hard for her. Every step of the way she had to prove herself that she was Klingon and or Betazed given the circumstance. Schooling was difficult to say the least. Being teased everyday hurt but the way her father wanted her to do was another. He was the Warrior of the house and being in the KDF made it all the much harder. He did not believe she should present her Betazoid side so that others would believe she was weak, but rather be strong and do both rites of ascension. Her mother did not understand why he wanted Katana to prove herself but did urge her to do as her father wished. So Katana did both rites and very promptly ended up having to prove herself again and nearly killed her opponent. Katana proved herself as a warrior and finally achieved the respect for all the teasing to stop.

Once this was accomplished, she began in earnest to complete her schooling. Her courses picked up as her new found courage took hold and quickly excelled in engineering. It was also decided that she take classes in security as her father is in the KDF and she would need it in defending her engineering career. He knew that if she was an engineering chief, she would have to physically defend against intruders. Both her parents agreed that when she finished her schooling on Q'onoS, she could go to Starfleet Academy.

The academy proved to be intimidating at first but with her mind dead set, she persevered and became an honor cadet. Her two main classes were engineering and security. These were accomplished quickly, and in the 4 years spent there she graduated in the top 3% of both classes and with honors.

She was assigned to the USS Ganger as her engineering officer and shortly promoted to Chief Engineer with the arrest of her boss. She was also promoted to Lt. Jg and served diligently until she transferred to SB 347 where she waits for her new post as CEO on the USS Churchill.
Service Record Graduated Academy and immediately assigned Intrepid class USS Ganger as engineering officer.

Promoted to CEO upon the arrest of her superior and promoted to rank of Lt. Jg.

Transferred back to SB347 and awaits her reassignment to USS Churchill.
