LCARS Starfleet Personnel Biography
Iel'ue and his brothers and sisters were hatched amongst his tribe in the Kilika Mountains near one of Aurelia's most famous observatories. Iel'ue took an interest in astronomy, stellar cartography, mathematics and physics early on, and applied for Starfleet Academy as soon as he was old enough, with the blessing of his tribal Elder. He majored in science and travelled on two tours of the Beta Quadrant before being assigned as Chief Science Officer on Starbase 104.
His work has focused on research and development in transporter technologies and astrophysical phenomenon in the Lembatta Cluster, also teaching Starfleet Academy courses remotely from the starbase. He has a proud, scholarly personality and does not broker scientific negligence or stupidity. A fellow science officer once tried to call him "Lou," unwilling to learn how to pronounce Iel'ue's name with the proper inflection and intonations. He quickly found himself heading up a project analyzing fecal matter samples of every known species in the Quadrant. The chief science officer goes by Lieutenant or "Professor" professionally, Iel'ue only to his friends.
Most recently, Iel'ue had reached the Lieutenant rank and served as Chief Science Officer aboard Starbase 104 until an off-duty incident saw him thrown into the brig with three Constitution officers. He was demoted and stripped of his CSO post, and requested transfer to the Constitution, taking an overdue sabbatical from instructing so he could pursue his research aboard the starship.
Iel'ue has a fondness for winter wine, a fermented berry drink similar to wine. When he joined Starfleet he left his paramour, Oel’ett, on Aurelia, and their relationship has become irreconcilable in the convening years to his regret.
The Conference - Lieutenant Iel'ue, Chief Science Officer of Starbase 104, runs into a student of his from Starfleet Academy, Ensign Choi Ji-hu of the newly arrived USS Constitution. He invites the ensign to meet with Commander Maxwell Traenor for drinks, and the trio are joined by Ensign Ahmose Hebeny. The party ends up extending to the Hinji bazaar where they run into trouble with locals, and eventually end up in the brig.
The Brig - Iel'ue claims responsibility for the mess when Captain Jalana Rajel shows up to bail her officers out of the brig.
A Change of Scenery - Iel'ue is demoted and stripped of his duty as Chief Science Officer aboard Starbase 104, and promptly requests reassignment to the Constitution. Captain Rajel accepts his request, to the Aurelian's delight.
A Stellar Welcome - Lieutenant Iel'ue attends to his initial duties in stellar cartography, where he meets the Constitution's Chief Science Officer, Chelin Ch'Gabor. The two share a pleasant exchange before Ch'Gabor invites his new science officer to undertake a survey of a planet in the Draxsin system, to Iel'ue's delight.
