Molly Ashaba is a civilian engineer whom operates a construction engineering team based on Antor II, and is 'captain' of the SS Jerico. Equipped with an understanding of construction in Coalition space superior to that of the outpost's inbound Starfleet crew, Ashaba co-heads the reconstruction efforts of Outpost 3.
Though born on Ketar V, Ashaba's family traveled to Antor II when jobs became scarce on the colony world. Following in her mother's footsteps, she began her own contract company for ship and outpost construction in Antor space, and has been awarded government contracts to fulfill for the last six years. Because of this, her parents, though proud of their daughter, have since become more bitter since their daughter began 'stealing' their contracts.
In mid-2394, her team was contracted to assist the Starfleet Corps of Engineers with the repairs of Coalition Outpost Loa, managing to contain and restore partial atmosphere to it's lower decks before the Starfleet crew arrived. Due to their inexperience with construction technology made in the Shoals, Ashaba had taken Lieutenant Commander Tristam Core and Crewman Kolby Selrus through a crash-course, giving them the necessary tools and knowledge to deconstruct and reconstruct the outpost.
