|Position||Chief of Security|
|Birthplace||Ballinaclashett, County Cork, Ireland, Earth|
- Name Pronunciation: Aine=ON-yuh
- Height: 1.6 m
- Weight: 45.8 kg
- Hair/Hair Length: Black/Upper Back to Mid Back, usually worn up on duty (sometimes she lets it down), and most often pulled back into a ponytail off duty.
- Eyes: Green
- Skin: Fair, lightly freckled.
- Build: Slight, but fit.
- Carriage: Proper posture.
- Handedness: Right
- Voice: Soft but pitchy. Slight Irish accent, she attempts to hide the full deal most of the time. Accent comes out more when angry, drinking, singing...or all of the above.
- Tattoos: Single black band on upper left forearm. Front ortho of a Nova Class starship with NCC-78145 below it on back of neck.
- Scars: Fist sized burn on right side of abdomen from disruptor.
- Uniform Preference: Aine wears the standard grey shouldered utility uniform. Of special note: toes of boots are always spit polished, jacket is one size too big as she doesn't like the restrictive feeling of a perfect fitting uniform.
- Off Duty Dress: Will often be seen wearing a turtle neck sweater or flannel shirt. Black leggings and black flats are de rigueur. Likes a warm robe. Tends to avoid dresses and skirts.
- Father: Patrick Thomas Sherlock, farmer
- Mother: Aine Rachel Sherlock nee Kelly, author
- Siblings: none
- Spouse: none
- Children: none
- Temperment: Nervous, in particular around senior officers, though as time goes on, she feels more comfortable with her immediate superiors. Stressful situations make her more focused. Attempts to remain emotionally distant from those around her, and has now failed, thankfully. Can be a stereotypical Gemini.
- Habits: Bites lower lip when nervous, she's not nearly as nervous as she used to be.
- Religion/Spiritual Devotion: None. Though grew up in an area where Neo-Catholicism was practiced. Sometimes "cultural Catholicism" can sneak in, often presenting as guilt.
- Hobbies: Archery, reading, playing violin (though doesn't have her violin on the Resolution).
- Quarters: 04-0201. Currently sparse. Didn't own much to begin with and half of what she did went away with the Resolution. But she's very happy to have her own quarters and excited there's an actually water bath.
- Favorite Food: Pastie's (pass-tee's) are a treat, replicated is "acceptable" but prefers the real thing. Will eat anything at least once.
- Favorite Drink: Barry's, hot, no sugar, splash of milk.
- Prized Possession: Small faux tortoise shell handled pocket knife given to her by her father when she left for the Academy.
Despite achieving high marks in school, Aine often feels self-doubt. However, her confidence is rising with every mission. At times can seem nervous, especially around new authority figures as she does not want to let them down. She will often bite her lower lip when nervous. Very rarely loses her cool, outwardly, as she tries to keep any panic internalized, though when she does get to the point of frustration it is evident. Her prior preference of being alone in her off hours has changed with the recent friendships she's made. She is an avid archer and won "The Robin Hood" award for high score at an interplanetary competition while on the Academy archery team. Enjoyed gymnastics and still practices as a form of exercise, though never took it too serious as a sport. Drinks recreatively on occasion, with the tolerance of an Irish dock worker on a Friday night. Having found a kinship with the character of Sherlock Holmes in her childhood, which also happens to be her family's surname, she chose to study investigative science in secondary school...she has grown tired of the jokes and “comparisons” to one of her favorite characters, especially with the arrival of a new Ensign on the Resolution who just happens to have the surname Watson. Loves a good mystery. She comes from a traditionally Catholic area, and it shows in some of her beliefs, though religion was not seen as important in her household. At times this can cause her guilt in the choices she has made.

Aine was born in the year 2374 in County Cork, Ireland. She was fairly sheltered as a child and her parents rarely had them travel outside of Ireland. She grew up on their family farm where her father grew fresh foods for the local community and her mother wrote, mostly novels and short stories. She took up violin and archery at a young age. Never practicing to the point she could be a professional at either. Had a habit of taking apart her fathers equipment just to see how it worked. Upon graduating from secondary school, Aine decided she wanted to see more than just Ireland and decided bigger was better and told her parents she intended to apply for Starfleet Academy. Initially her parents were resistant to the idea as they feared for her safety, so they told her, but when they saw that she didn't want anything else, they fully supported her. She barely got into the Academy on her first try. Because of their apparent fear for her safety, Aine has a habit of keeping the dangerous parts of the missions out of updates to her parents. Unbeknownst to Aine, prior to her birth her father was a merchant marine and that's why her mother did not want her to join Starfleet.
While at the Academy, Aine took to piloting and initially figured she would go that route. Her first year she dated a Senior classman, now Lieutenant Melvin Hollis Martinson. Upon his graduation he decided not to continue the relationship. This left Aine heartbroken and she suffered from depression. Her second year she took on less course work and her grades suffered. She sought out counseling and overcame her depression.
During her first year, she caught the eye of her unarmed combat instructor Master Chief Graves. He became a friend and mentor to her. She also decided to major in Intelligence, harkening back to her love of Investigative Science. She initially chose to double major in Security, but due to her lackluster second year, she minored in it. Her third and fourth years she doubled down and took on extra courses. Near the end of her third year, she took The Romulan Mystique and developed a fascination for the Romulan people. This showed in her choice to take all courses available on the Romulan language, which she is fluent in, and focuses in xenology and xenobiology on Romulans. In addition to taking extra courses for her major, she took all available courses and earned a full course minor in Security. At the end of her fourth year, she was transferred to Starbase 118 to take her final test administered by Lt. Cmdr.'s Antero Flynn and Genkos Adea. She graduated on stardate 239712.12. Upon graduation, she chose to focus on Security as she felt, culturally, it was a better fit for her than Intelligence. A choice she now feels confident in making.

Assigned to the USS Resolution in 2397, the ship is sent to find the missing freighter, Andalucia. Upon entering the Celendi Nebula, the ship is pulled into a temporal anomaly which transports it 200,000-300,000 years into the future. They find the crew of the Andalucia was taken captive and enslaved on the planet Saural V. A small away team, including Ensign Sherlock, is sent down to the surface to find the missing crew while the Resolution, with Captain Nicholotti now out of action with an unknown ailment that appears to be an aneurysm, plays a game of cat and mouse with the Sau ship. The raid on the planet taking a wrong turn as Ensign Treetus is injured, a mutiny takes place on the Sau ship with it's former first officer now on a suicide run towards the slave camp. The team makes it out with what refugees the ship can hold and makes its way back to their time, with information sent to them by the Sau first officer. After they make it back, the crew takes their Captain to Vulcan for treatment while the crew takes leave. While having dinner at their crew member T'Suran's parent's home, the Captain makes a surprise appearance and presents the crew with awards and, in Aine's case, a promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade.
Following shore leave on Vulcan, the Resolution was dispatched to assist in negotiations between the Thama and Nascaik over the ownership of the planet Vionus IV. Though, ultimately, the negotiations were successful, the mission was marked with difficulty. The Thama's delegate aide had a personal agenda in the kidnapping and attempted murder of one of the Nascaik delegates. The Nascaik delegate was successfully rescued. Post mission and en-route to DS224, Aine gave a self-defense class. Unfortunately, Crewman Hamsan Dwich was injured in the class. See: Incident Report.
239804.05 the Resolution is dispatched to the Briar Patch in search of the missing Starfleet surveyor the USS Hanno. A Romulan Senator tags along as they too are missing ships in the same area. The Resolution comes into contact, literally, with a rogue planet populated by the Skarn. Lead by a megalomaniac, Arbelo, the crew is at risk of being fed to a creature controlled by their leader. Aine, in a last ditch effort, uses her phaser as an improvised explosive device to kill Arbelo. In turn, the effect that is keeping power from moving on the Resolution is now disabled. An act which earned Aine the Captain's Commendation. An award which she personally holds above all others.
239807.21 while on routine survey of the Borderlands, the Resolution is attacked by what appears to be a one hundred year old Klingon D-7. Suffering a warp core breach, the ship is "destroyed." The crew suddenly finds itself reliving the same moment starting five minutes earlier. Despite being able to prepare for the attack, the ship suffers another core breach and is destroyed...again. Around this time, it is discovered by Counselor Sirin that a Q is responsible for their predicament. Aine and Yogan Yalu are tasked with joining the Klingons after Captain Nicholotti negotiates a temporary cease fire, and helping the initiate a reverse tachyon beam to break out of the Q's created "space." After a couple more rounds, the ships are able to break free. The Klingon ship is liaised back to their homeworld and the Empire. The crew of the Resolution deals with traumatic experiences including some who experienced an alternate time shift.
239809.20 Captain Nicholotti is attended to by Commander MacKenzie aboard the USS Excalibur-A for a medical condition brought on by the manipulation of time by a Q entity. Doctor Genkos Adea takes temporary command of the USS Resolution. While on routine patrol, a distress signal is received from Rinascita Research Station. Little is known about the facility save for the vague reference to Doctor Carol Marcus. Upon arrival it is discovered that one of their doctors has been attacked and nearly killed. After attending to the wounded, Doctor Morgan of the Resolution is taken captive and one team is trapped by the stations supposed security chief in the science lab. It is learned that multiple Suliban are attempting to steal a Genesis device that has been built by the stations scientists. Aine leads one team to rescue Doctor Morgan while the other goes after the device. During the hasty hostage rescue Aine is wounded with a near fatal injury from a disruptor and Counselor Sirin is stabbed while coming to her aid. After the hostage taker is taken alive, Doctor Morgan was able to stabilize and heal Aine as best he could. The teams reunite to escape the station. Meanwhile, back on the Resolution, one of the apparent terrorists beams the device aboard the Resolution, which is now activated, after capturing Acting Captain Adea, Commander Thornton, and Lieutenant Silveira. The Resolution comes under attack by a Suliban controlled vessel and during the skirmish, Silveira manages to get through the force field and attack Rackham. As Rackham is dying, he reveals he is actually Liam Wyke, and undercover Starfleet intelligence agent. The order is given to abandon ship. The Resolution is destroyed, losing 14 people (13 crew members including LtCmdr Farrel and LtCmdr Amari and 1 member of SFI, Liam Wyke). The USS Carpathia rescues what's left of the crew and deposits them on Risa for rest, recuperation, and a formal inquiry into the loss of a Starfleet vessel.
Over the new year of 2399, the Excalibur was sent to the Cytarix system to investigate increased radiation readings from one of it's planets. During the investigation, Ensign Dakora is seemingly attacked by an orb that rose from the ground. Shortly after the "attack" the crew suddenly finds their consciousness' swapped with other crewmembers bodies. After heading back down to the planet and making contact with another orb, it is found that the orbs are arks of sorts transporting a non-corporeal civilization in search of a new home. The aliens swap their minds back to their appropriate bodies and with the assistance of the USS Chesapeake, they find a new home.
Aine's unarmed combat instructor and mentor (sometimes not the best) from the Academy, Master Chief Graves.
A returning officer currently serving aboard the USS Juneau. They met during their final test and Aine quickly developed a respect for his confidence and initiative, while not knowing he was a returning officer. She resolved to keep in contact with him no matter where either ended up. After his transfer to the Resolution, their friendship seemed strained. When he acted in a way unbecoming a Starfleet Officer on his first mission with them, she really isn't sure where they stand.
Counselor on the Resolution, who is quickly becoming a friend. Aine is feeling, more and more, she can go to Meidra and is looking forward to spending time getting to know her more over their coming shore leave.
After a rough start getting to know each other, through no fault of either, Aine and Iljor have begun to get to know each other better and have spent some time enjoying each others company with other crew members during shore leave.
Aine's first Captain. When Aine first came aboard the Resolution, she was intimidated by the Captain's presence. Her respect and admiration quickly built followed by worry when the Captain fell ill during their mission to the Celendi Nebula. After a night spent on the Gemini and getting a moment to see the Captain in a less professional manner, her admiration grew even more when the Captain shared memories of a former colleague, Captain Frost. Aine has absolute confidence in her Captain and never hesitates to follow her lead.
