Personality & Traits

General Overview Mia, at one time, was a very quiet and shy person. As she grew into her role as a science officer she became more curious and outgoing with others. She prioritizes her husband James and their two children Rose and Tyler. Mia doesn't like making difficult decisions, but when it comes to the well-being of her family she will make them. Outside of being an officer with Starfleet she realized that she was much happier though the sacrifices were pretty big.

Her decision to work for Starfleet again was in large part thanks to the convincing of her husband James even with the protests of their two children who wanted to remain on Earth. In the end Mia may have resigned from being an officer for Starfleet, but Starfleet was still part of her being. Ultimately her curiosity got the better of her and so her decision was already made in advance. Mia places the well-being of others above all else and that was the biggest driving factor in her decision.

Personal History Mia Jenkins was born in 2353 nearly three years after her brother Gregory. Both children were born aboard the USS Resonance where their mother Rose was serving as a Science Officer. Shortly, after her birth Rose transferred to Earth to serve at Starfleet Headquarters in the research department. When Mia was old enough she opted to apply to Starfleet Academy and was accepted in 2371.

Near the end of the Dominion War in 2375 she officially graduated and was assigned to serve aboard Starbase 10. Prior to her official assignment to the new Starbase she ran into a James Cohen though little did she realize the two would eventually be married. After some convincing she went on a date with him and the two managed to hit it off.

Just as the two were getting married they found out that they were expecting their first child. As Mia was getting used to Starfleet life she gave birth to Rose Cohen whom they named for Mia's mother. And, a year after that Mia was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade and was expecting their second child. Tyler Cohen was born later that year and now Mia was juggling marriage, her career, and two children.

In 2379 she put in a transfer request to the same starship as her husband in order to keep the family together. That year she was transferred to the USS Carnage to serve as the ship's Assistant Chief Science Officer. She hadn't yet become used to her life, but began multiple research projects in order to better understand neuroscience.

Mia's career seemed to stall out a little bit and she began to feel like she was getting nowhere in her research. After communicating to her husband about other potential avenues and gaining his blessing in 2382 she officially resigned her commission from Starfleet. That year she returned to Earth with Rose and Tyler in order to pursue her doctoral in neuroscience.

By 2386 Mia had completed her doctoral at Yale University and was given a research grant to continue working at the same university. In 2387 her husband had left Starfleet to take up a civilian position aboard Xavier Fleet Yard. Mia would depart from Earth with their two children to join him as a Neural Biologist aboard the station.

Following the attack by the Gorn and the offer to join the crew of the USS Onnar Mia Cohen decided to accompany her husband as the senior neural biologist aboard the starship. In 2389 she would officially transfer to the ship.
