Personal History Trixia was the first of her family to join Starfleet. Her parents were engineers on Andoria, specializing in military weaponry, and her older sister joined the Home Guard. The expectation was that Trixia would have a similar career track within the Andorian military. While her choice to join Starfleet wasn't derided directly, she could tell that her parents were disappointed. Much of her motivation now is to make her parents proud and prove to them she made the right choice.

As far back as she could remember, Trixia was always tearing things down and reassembling them. From her toys as a child, to small appliances as a teen. When she was old enough to not get hurt, her parents let her help out with their vehicle work. She had a keen eye on how things worked together, and especially the computer code that ran them.

Her parents quasi-groomed her for a life in the Andorian military corps, as a warrior if not an engineer. But an encounter with a group of Starfleet officers on leave changed the trajectory of her life. Up until now, all she had known was the life on Andoria. The existence of interstellar travel was known, but it just didn't interest her. Andoria was comfortable.

Friends of her family ran a ski resort for Federation members, and one of their lift mechanisms failed. As a favor, the 17-year-old Trixia was asked to look at it. The repair wasn't too difficult, but she was fascinated by the variety of peoples using the slopes. Not just Andorians enjoyed Andoria. Back at the ski lodge, she reported the successful repair to the proprietor, and then noticed a group of skiers she saw on the slopes. Pulling up her courage, she approached and joined the conversation.

They were friendly, and she discovered they were Starfleet on leave. Many questions were asked and answered. She learned of Starfleet's mission, and their adventures in the galaxy. One member in particular, a young human Operation officer, piqued her interest.

It was a whirlwind ten-day romance, and they were practically inseparable. She showed him her favorite places on Andoria, and he continued to tell her about Starfleet. By the time he was recalled to his ship, she had completely re-thought her career. She realized she wanted a taste of that adventure. The thought of possibly rekindling the romance was a factor, but she knew from the start it was going to be a short-term thing. More than likely, another officer would steal her heart eventually.

Trixia discussed her plans with her parents. They were supportive of their daughter, but she knew they were disappointed. After taking the entrance exams, she learned in 2391 that she had earned entry to Starfleet Academy.

Her Academy years went by in a blur. She was fascinated by what she learned and the new friends she made. Another romance wasn't sparked yet, but she wasn't rushing on that front. Her first goal was to get onto a starship. Whens he learned she would be assigned to the USS Mark Miller on the fringes of Federation Space, she was both excited for the adventure, and a bit nervous about being so far away.
