Personality & Traits

General Overview Taya, at one point in her life, was a very outgoing person. However, this has steadily changed as Taya has become more introverted through time. She doubts herself largely due to the struggles she had at the Academy. She has also gone out of her way to resist authority figures making her a less than perfect young officer. Taya is ready to begin her work on board the station, but is not entirely convinced that she belongs there.

Personal History Taya MacDonnell was born in 2368, one year after her sister Tessa, to Alyssa and Alexander MacDonnell. The family lived in western New York at the time and continue to live there even after both girls left home. Taya was seven years old when a fuel line on the shuttle that the family was using ruptured.

She and her family were severely injured, luckily, they were not killed in the resulting explosion. This led Taya to consider a career as an engineer in which continued throughout much of her teenage years. Taya would leave for Starfleet Academy along with three of her friends in 2386, however, she struggled in school.

Being away from family members made it incredibly difficult and she found out that her weaknesses in advanced mathematics requiring her to use a tutor. Things did not become any easier for her in that field. Her creativity never waivered though while attending classes and this continued to help her get through it.

By 2390 Taya had completed her time at the Academy, but not near the top of her class due to her constant struggles. She also struggled with authority figures and had lost her friends along the way. Her first assignment was at Vidal Fleet Yards, which she wasn’t entirely confident in that selection. She was set to serve as one of the Design Officers on board the station.
