Personality

Quinn was placed in an accelerated learning program as a young girl, and so has spent little time interacting with people her own age. She finds social situations difficult to cope with - often working far better alone than with others - and comes across as shy, quiet and frequently nervous in disposition. Once past her unsure exterior, Quinn is a loyal friend, though she frequently misses verbal and non-verbal cues to her friend's feelings.

Hobbies and Pastimes

  • Music: Quinn is an accomplished pianist, and enjoys playing in her spare time.
  • Gardening: While not as feasible on a starship, Quinn enjoys gardening and has a sizeable garden in her home on Mars.

Likes and Dislikes

  • Likes:
    • Technology: Definite and specific, Quinn finds the logical nature of technology a comfort.
    • Music: Mathematics and music have always had a close association, and it is one that she appreciates.
  • Dislikes:
    • Answers open to interpretation: A mathematician and engineer by trade, Quinn generally dislikes anything that does not have a straightforward answer (though she has no problem with complex methods leading to a 'straightforward' answer).
    • Intuition: As an extension of the above, she finds people who operate on intuition and gut-feelings difficult to understand - any course of action she decides on is backed up by reasoned thought and she dislikes following orders that appear to be missing that basis.
    • Telepaths: Perhaps as a result of her insecurities, Quinn places a high value on her privacy. She feels distinctly uncomfortable around telepathic species due to their ability to violate that privacy, whether accidentally or deliberately.
    • Water: Due to an unfortunate boating accident while on holiday, Quinn has been left with a strong phobia of bodies of water.

Ambitions and Goals

Quinn's ambitions and goals have been fluid in recent years and continue to be so. One day, she hopes that she can learn to shake off her discomfort in social situations and function more normally around other people. She has no specific goals or objectives in Starfleet other than to perform her duties to the best of her abilities; and though the post of Chief Engineer is one that appeals to her, at the current time she doesn't see how she could function well in that role.

Personal Achievements and Disappointments

Quinn has a somewhat unusual relationship with her personal achievements; despite being the holder of two PhD's and several years of Research and Design experience at Utopia Planetia shipyards, she does not view these as particularly great accomplishments. Rather, they were something she was expected to achieve, were well within her abilities and so she tends brush off any attention regarding them, even appearing arrogant to some. The one thing she is genuinely proud of is her acceptance to and graduation from Starfleet Academy. She found the theoretical work easy, but many other aspects of the Academy's curriculum were a struggle to Quinn and she had to work hard to pass them.

Her greatest disappointment is her continuing battle with her shyness; she had hoped that her time at Starfleet Academy would wipe it away. Though she doesn't struggle in the same way as she used to, Quinn still finds socialising difficult.


Family

Dysfunctional is the best term to describe Quinn's family; her biological father has been conspicuously absent since before she was born, her mother currently resides in a mental institution, her siblings do their best not to acknowledge her and her adoptive father battles against the overbearing influence of her maternal grandparents.

Spouse

  • Marital Status: Single.

Children

  • Number of children: None.

Parents

  • Mother: Sarah Louise Reynolds (Terran).
  • Father: Jeliel (Deltan).
  • Adoptive Father: Stephen Richard Reynolds (Terran).

Siblings

  • Half-Brother: Sean Patrick Reynolds.
  • Half-Sister: Siobhan Jessica Isaacs (formerly Reynolds).


Personal History

Full Article: Reynolds, Quinn - Personal History

Born in the Columbia Hills settlement on Mars, Quinn was the child of an illicit liaison between her human mother and deltan father. Her father left before the pregnancy was discovered and her mother's mental condition rapidly deteriorated after giving birth, leaving Quinn primarily in the care of her mother's husband. Her two half-siblings blamed the young girl for taking their mother away and her maternal grandparents actively fought for custody of all the children, eventually conceding defeat but maintaining an overbearing presence in their lives. Perhaps because of this, she was a quiet, withdrawn child who preferred to play alone, rather than with other children and spent a great deal of time gazing at the stars and shipyards in the sky.

Timeline

  1. 2358: Born.
  2. 2363: Quinn's mother, Sarah, is institutionalised. Quinn is cared for by Sarah's husband, who later formally adopt her.
  3. 2366: A disastrous trip to Delta IV (with the intention of introducing her to Deltan culture) leaves Quinn with a permanent phobia of water.


Professional History

Quinn displayed a remarkable intellect at an extremely young age; she was gently encouraged by her adoptive father and forcibly pushed by her maternal grandparents into fully exploring her potential. As a direct result, she applied and was accepted by the Daystrom Institute of Technology at the tender age of ten. There, she studied a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics, but growing up on Mars near the Utopia Planitia facility had instilled a love of starships into the girl, and it was in this direction that Quinn chose to channel her genius. Though she found the life of an academic and researcher fulfilling, Quinn felt she had been shoehorned into the role and wished to contribute more actively to the Federation; eventually realising this dream by securing herself a place at Starfleet Academy.

Timeline

  1. 2368: Graduates from high school, begins study at the Daystrom Institute of Technology.
  2. 2370: Completes a BSc in Physics.
  3. 2373: Completes PhD in Warp Field Theory.
  4. 2374: Joins the Theoretical Propulsion Group at Utopia Planitia shipyards.
  5. 2376: Completes PhD in Applied Subspace Theory.
  6. 2380: Enters Starfleet Academy.


Starfleet Assessments and Records

Quinn's time at the Academy was unremarkable; over-achieving in all classical academic aspects and under-achieving in just about everything else, she managed to graduate squarely in the middle of her class. Her first assignment, much to her distress, was to the Defiant class starship, the USS Triumphant.
