Personality & Traits

General Overview Merissa is a born engineer though fate would have a different idea for her, and she would become a tactical officer and Yeoman before returning to engineering. She enjoys being a mother and is thankful to be able to continue her career at another installation. She’s very protective of her family, especially her children, and cares for her friends. Merissa has an easy time making new friends and can be very charismatic when she chooses to be. Never once has Merissa regretted her decision to be a commissioned officer. And, that remains to be true of her even today.

Personal History Merissa Davis was born in 2349 in York, England. She is the oldest child and twin sister to Maxwell Davis who is eleven minutes younger than she is. Merissa was thirteen years old when she met Dorian Reade after Dorian had moved from London to York with his parents. They were in school together, but it would take a great deal of convincing before Merissa finally accepted an invitation go on a date with Dorian.

By 2370 and after dating through High School and after she was assigned to the USS Ganymede the two were married when she returned home for leave. Dorian had started to work as a Journalist for the Federation News Service at about the same time. Three years later and after being promoted all the way to Petty Officer Third Class the Dominion War had started. The Ganymede took heavy losses during one of their engagements and she was reassigned to tactical due to those losses.

She remained in that position until the end of the war and aboard the Ganymede for much of the time. Merissa felt that it was a time for a career change, however, and returned to Starfleet Academy to go through the Yeoman’s course. As a Second Class Petty Officer she concluded the course in 2376 and was assigned to Starbase 119. Her husband came to live with her on the station. In 2377 her first child, Trevor Reade was born, and now she had the daunting role as mother. Two years later she had been promoted to the rank of Petty Officer First Class, but for the sake of her growing family she remained on the station.

In the year 2380 her second son, Dillon, was born. The opportunity to return to a starship had come and gone because the vessel required her to go onto a deep space assignment. Her husband tried to talk her into going, but she accepted an extension on her orders and remained aboard the station. Three years after that her first and only daughter Leah was born. Merissa enjoyed the quiet life on the station. In 2385 Merissa was promoted to the rank of Chief Petty Officer and would remain on the station for another five years.

Just before the end of 2389 she had been offered a position as an Engineering Yeoman at Vidal Fleet Yards. Due to some classified event, however, Merissa and her family would remain aboard Starbase 119 for another few weeks and not officially report aboard until the year 2390. Her husband had been assigned, by the Federation News Service, to serve as the Editorial in Chief for the FNS office there on the station.
