Lieutenant Tiria Hamasaki
"That though prudence, intrepidity, and perseverance united are not exempted from the blows of adverse fortune, yet in a long series of transactions they usually rise superior to its power, and in the end rarely fail of proving successful."
— Admiral of the Fleet George Anson, 1st Baron Anson, PC, FRS

Lieutenant JG Tiria Hamasaki is stationed aboard the USS Montreal as chief helmwoman.

  • Name: Tiria Hamasaki
  • Species: Human
  • Age: 29
  • Gender: Female
  • Hair: Black
  • Eyes: Green
  • Height: 161cm (5' 3")
  • Build: Normal


Tiria is a short woman, with black hair to her shoulders and green eyes - although her angular face bears all the hallmarks of someone from the Japanese nation of Earth. A quiet woman, Tiria can often be found reading or doing some exercises off shift - she's often said it helped her think through problems.

Personality wise, she's developed a wry sense of humor and often is far more practically minded than elsewise, a product of growing up on Havley's Hope. Part of her is glad she gets to explore, although so far it's been home, and a remote sector of the Federation.


Born on Havley's Hope to her father, Minaki Hamasaki, a colonial botanist, and Amelia Hamasaki, an administrator with the colony, Tiria had a fairly normal childhood, if biased towards the type of learning useful on remote worlds. Her older sister, who was much more physically based was one of her closest friends.

As she became an adult, her sister, fed up with the very quiet and limited life the colony provided and left for other parts. While the Shoals had flourished during the Dominion War, it was still a remote region of the Federation. When her sister left to see the wider galaxy, she never mentioned that she worked for than a security consultant and traveled regularly. With the frequent contact, Tiria picked up the urge to see the wider galaxy. The Shoals were not precisely an area one wanted to explore, and while her parents tried to argue her out of it, she was determined to see the galaxy.

Granted, they did talk her out of Starfleet, as her parents had a distrust of them and most Federation-wide organizations. Still, they supported her choice to join Federation Security as it was a relatively more safe vocation, would let her travel, but was law-enforcement. Her parents were also secretly convinced that she would quit and maybe join the Colonial Coalition Marshals.

Tiria joined Federation Security on 238704.01 and enjoyed her job, but found rapidly that she didn't get to see all that much, even assigned to one of the roving teams that were used in some remote sectors of the Federation. That said.. it only took her a year to realize this wasn't the job for her, as much as she worked diligently to perform her duty. While she enjoyed her job, the death of her fiancee in early 2391 in a siege drove her away from Starfleet Security, and she joined Starfleet Academy in late 2391.

While she was older than a lot of the other cadets, she enjoyed her years at the Academy. And it was interesting seeing a core-world perspective, as many of her jaunts as Federation Security had taken her to the fringes of Federation space.

Professional History

Before Starfleet

Tiria joined Federation Security, and was assigned to the Criminal Investigations branch in 2387 upon graduating from college with a degree in justice. She was rapidly promoted to Sergeant and assigned to the teams that roamed through some of the sparser sectors. During this time, she passed the certification to become a Detective, and was named Detective Sergeant, in 2388. In this time, she met a biologist named Ityvial Zh'iqihlass, and after a while, the two were in a committed relationship.

In early 2391, the Siege of Resilion IV happened. Resilion IV, which was in the middle of forming a stable government during the transition from colony world to fully fledged member of the Federation of Planets, was in a state of political turmoil. The world, located just outside the Tyrellian Sector, had faced issues with a minority faction suddenly growing in power and funds. By 2391, their agents had begun to penetrate into the government. One alert clerk of the Federation Bureau of Colonial Affairs had noticed something was odd with the reports emanating from the planet, and they sent in Tiria's team. While they beefed it up with several security teams, it turned out to be insufficient to the needs, as the rebel faction had hired many mercenaries, and within the first week of investigations, attacked them and any loyal government forces. Forced to retreat to a precinct building, the now diminished team holed up with some of the remaining Federation personnel, including Ityvial.

On Day 12, they received notification that the USS Wall Street was leading a small taskforce comprised of itself and several runabouts to relieve the siege and investigate the cause of the attack. They had to simply hold out for 14 more days. However, on day 25, the rebel forces, diminished from the sniper attacks, and rebuffed attempts to infiltrate and attack the precinct, initiated an attack in force after calling more and more forces from detachments attempting to take over various targets and Ityvial died in Tiria's arms. By this time, over 75% of the pro-government forces and Tiria's team were dead or so severely wounded they could not fight, nor maintain the force fields that were keeping the rebels from simply bringing down the building. The remaining forces were buried when the building was destroyed, but thankfully, the ship had appeared in orbit in just the right moment to rescue the majority of them.

While Tiria recovered after a few major surgeries, the now Detective Inspector retired, feeling unable to go on with her job soon after the trials for the ringleaders who were concluded. (It is of note that very few ringleaders survived to be caught, and investigations into where they got it from were unable to be conclusively proven in court, although Starfleet Intelligence now suspects it was the work of a hidden branch of the Orion Syndicate.). At a loose end, she joined Starfleet, determined to continue to serve others in some manner.
