Lieutenant Jovenan is an Edo Starfleet officer. She is currently serving as the Chief Science Officer aboard the USS Artemis-A. Born on the Edo homeworld in 2373, she enrolled in the University of Hurkos in 2390, when the planet was ending its isolation. Upon graduation with degree in Planetary Sciences, she entered the Starfleet Academy. In 2399, she received the commission as ensign and was posted on the USS Excalibur-A, later transferring to the Artemis with much of the Excalibur crew.

Early life and education


Jovenan was born on Rubicun III, the Edo homeworld in the Alpha Quadrant in 2373. The ongoing Dominion War didn’t affect the remote and neutral planet, allowing Jovenan to grow up in a peaceful environment. She was raised communally, common in her home region. She had a happy childhood, but as she grew up, she found she had no desire for intimate relations, an important aspect of Edo culture. While the other members of her community were accepting of her, she started to feel herself an outsider in her own culture. This roused her longing to leave Rubicun III.

In 2390, she was accepted to University of Hurkos Bachelor Programme in Planetary Sciences. Pending the permission of the Edo God and governance to leave the still partly isolationist planet, the university allowed her to participate in education remotely from Rubicun III. She excelled in her studies, and she was eventually allowed to leave for Hurkos III. The life in the campus was, however, too large a cultural shock for her, and she also faced harassment due to her culture. She faced mental difficulties, and her grades plummeted. Her community back home pleaded her to return, and she eventually agreed. She spent almost a year on Rubicun III before returning to Hurkos III to complete her remaining studies. This time she passed as human, which made it easier for her to concentrate on studying, and she graduated in 2395.

Service


Jovenan after her graduation from the Starfleet Academy, before her first assignment.

Starfleet Academy

After graduation from the University of Hurkos, she became interested in Starfleet and the possibility to explore strange new worlds. She joined the Starfleet Academy in 2395. Her decision to major in science had been obvious to her before applying to the Academy. Already having a degree in Planetary Science, she chose to broaden her skill set and specialize in something new to her, namely astronomy and xenobiology. She completed a minor in Communications and Operations. She didn’t actively hide her being an Edo anymore, but with so many humans around, very few had reason to think she wasn’t one too. She had almost perfect record in sciences but struggled with the mandatory combat and piloting courses.

She completed Starfleet Academy final examination at the Starbase 118 Campus. The examination was supervised by training officer Commander Genkos Adea, assisted by Lieutenant Commander Wil Ukinix. She assumed the role of the science officer of USS Centris-A during an away mission on Durosa, where they had received a distress call.[1]

USS Excalibur

Jovenan shortly after joining the Excalibur in 2399.

Jovenan was first assigned to USS Excalibur-A, a Vesta class explorer. She was happy to join a vessel with extensive scientific facilities, but she was also uncertain of the Borderlands, the area of operation of the Excalibur.

Her introduction to the ship had to be postponed, as the ship was in middle of a diplomatic mission. After the delegates were poisoned, Jovenan joined the crew she didn’t know yet to identify the source and find a cure. She met more of her colleagues during the following shore leave. The leave was however cut short as two officers went missing and were later kidnapped by a group of Klingons wishing to destroy the Excalibur. Jovenan and her colleagues discovered data on their location and status, providing the bridge vital information that helped in avoiding the destruction of the ship. She was awarded her first service ribbons thereafter.

USS Artemis

Jovenan soon after joining the Artemis.

Along with many other officers and crewmembers of the Excalibur, Jovenan was transferred to the Luna class explorer USS Artemis-A in 240002. She first boarded the ship after the brief shore leave on Deep Space 224 wearing her new skant uniform.[2]

Their maiden voyage was to Meranuge IV, where a meteor had hit the city of Tecra. Their relief efforts were cut short after the locals and telepathic crewmembers became aggressive under the effect of Da’allium dust. After the discovery of the cure and a shoreleave on the planet, Jovenan was promoted to Lieutenant JG. During a drill-turned-fight against pirates, Jovenan showed her skills in operating multiple different systems. She was then appointed the Assistant Chief Science Officer. Soon after the appointment, the crew had to face their counterparts from an alternate universe. The counterparts tried to take over the Artemis, except for Jovenan’s counterpart, who was killed after warning the Artemis.

The ceremony in which Jovenan was promoted to (full) Lieutenant and Chief Science Officer was interrupted by CloQ, and the crew was moved to an alternate past. After spending some time in c. 2376 Dominion Occupied Betazed, Jovenan and her team travelled back to 2374 Romulus with the intention to fix the timeline.

Both Sides Now
Both Sides Now (Artemis)

The mission was mostly played with alternate characters. See Jovenan (alternate) for details.

After the catastrophic drill, the Artemis was ordered to a research mission. During the intense scanning mission, the Artemis conducted deep-level sensor sweeps across the Borderlands, with the sensors running around the clock.[3] This being her first mission as the Assistant Chief Science Officer, Jovenan wanted good results, but was too eager and approved more research proposals than their resources allowed. Trying to fill in, Jovenan worked several shifts a day, exhausting herself.[4]

The nature of the mission changed dramatically, when a group of vessels crossed over from another universe. The research mission ended, and the Science Department administrative assistant Ailata Milath told her the science officers blamed her for the cancelled studies as well as the chaos before the events.[4]

Jovenan's counterpart from the other universe

One of the people that had crossed over was her counterpart, whom Jovenan went to meet. After the counterpart seemed to refuse to open the door of her temporary quarters, Jovenan introduced her through the door. Almost immediately, the alternate Jovenan rushed to hug Jovenan and pulled her in. The alternate Jovenan asked her which universe they were in, but Jovenan couldn't answer. The alternate Jovenan further questioned her of Divine Fleet (which Jovenan didn't know about) and Starfleet. The alternate Jovenan quickly determined that the Edo in the Prime universe were “nothing but sex-crazed hedonists who are too afraid to leave God’s Claims”, which Jovenan was ashamed to admit. The alternate Jovenan moved to reveal details of the Edo God, which she claimed were the same in different universes, surprising Jovenan. When Jovenan insisted her counterpart to assist her in finding out how to send them back, the alternate Jovenan instead interrupted her and requested her assistance, appealing to their shared faith.[4] After Jovenan refused, the alternate Jovenan tried to appeal to her rank as a mediator, making Jovenan pull out her community leader's necklace, indicating her status over her. The alternate Jovenan, however, took notice of the fact that Jovenan was hiding the necklace under her uniform turtleneck. This lead to her mocking Jovenan of her abandoning their culture.[5]

Jovenan resumed to study the "prismagons", devices that had caused the alternate universe ship to travel to their universe, working long days and nights to find a way to send them back. Despite the pressure to finish the research quickly, Jovenan was interrupted by Dakora, who asked her to join him in his office. There, Dakora and PO Xandeus Filistrien told her that they had intercepted a message, transmitted by fluctuation in the Desdemona's system, and was apparently written in her language. Jovenan quickly identified the text of the message as her native dialect, but since the message was only partial, she could only make out "somebody is going to do something to a deer vessel".[5] Jovenan informed Dakora of what had happened during her meeting with her counterpart, believing her to be deceitful and manipulative. Just then, Dakora found out a group of the Desdemona crewmembers had beamed over to the Artemis, including the counterparts of Jovenan and MacKenzie. Based on what they had learnt, they decided to warn the Captain and the security.[6]

The Captain ordered Jovenan to cooperate with Doctor Genkos Adea to try and find the ending for the message. She went to the Sickbay trying to find him in his office but was informed by Doctor Gila Sadar that Adea hasn't been there that day. After being asked, Sadar told that Adea hasn't been doing his normal shifts and has appeared busy since the arrival of the Desdemona. Jovenan began to suspect that Adea's odd behaviour might be Desdemona's crew's doing, and she informed Sadar of the possible attack.[7][8] They began to investigate Adea's odd behaviour and concluded that he might have been replaced by his counterpart. They believed the real Adea might be held in his quarters, and decided to enter there to find out.[9] They found Adea bound and gagged in his closet, alive and in relatively good condition.[10]

After freed Adea had joined Jovenan and Sadar, they learnt through the communications system that the crew of the Desdemona were claiming to have taken over all essential locations on the ship. Adea began to plan attacking the bridge with Jovenan and Sadar, who reluctantly accepted his orders.[11] Before just the three of them could leave for the bridge, they were contacted by Captain MacKenzie, who joined them together with Lt Silveira. The larger group planned that some of them would pretend to be their counterparts and others would be "captives", so that they could all go to the bridge without immediate resistance from the Desdemona crewmembers occupying it. Silveira pleaded them to fast so that he could go and rescue the alternate Jovenan.[12] Jovenan learnt that Silveira and her counterpart had started a romance, and was initially weirded out by it and refused to believe her counterpart was sincere in that relationship. She also worried how this might affect her collegial relationship with Silveira.[13]

The team procedeed with their plan. Jovenan, Adea and Sadar played the roles of their counterparts while MacKenzie and Silveira pretended to be their captives. The team was allowed to the bridge, where they found Silveira's counterpart Vitor Olivera, Ensign Flint Kader in role of his counterpart, and another Desdemona crewmember. Olivera initially fell for their ruse, but then contacted Colonel MacKenzie, the Captain's counterpart, asking if Jovenan's counterpart wasn't in her team. The team learnt that Mediator Jovenan had died after betraying the Desdemona crew. At that point, Jovenan realised she had been wrong on her counterpart. Meanwhile, Silveira became rageous and attacked his counterpart. Their ruse discovered, the team took over the bridge after a brief fight. Silveira planned to kill his counterpart, but they were interrupted by an approaching vessel and they took their stations. Kader informed it was nothing to worry about, and soon their deflector fired an energy burst and the approaching vessel, a Shint ship, disappeared, presumedly back to their universe. While she didn't know how Kader had acquired this information, he told them how they could send the Desdemona back to their universe. Jovenan however learnt that the Hazardous Materials Lab had been breached, a scientist working there killed and the prismagons stolen. Before they could do much more, Ensign Savel informed them that Hiro Jones had been severely injured in an explosion in the Sickbay.[13] This information nearly devastated Jovenan, and Doctor Adea left the bridge to help him.[14]

The bridge crew began to track down the attackers and report the status around the ship to the Captain. Jovenan found the stolen prismagon container using its locator beacon.[14] Genkos Adea, Doctor Adea's counterpart, escaped with a stolen shuttle while the Artemis was holding the Desdemona from fleeing. Meanwhile, Commander Dakora and his team secured the prismagons.[15] After a while, Ensign Kawarda informed Jovenan that he might have made an accidental breakthrough in the study of the prismagons, and Jovenan asked the Captain to join him. By this time, they had already located and detained or killed all remaining Desdemona crewmembers on the Artemis. A few hours of research and installation work later, the Captain ordered the crew to create an opening between the universes and send the Desdemona back to their home reality.[16]

At the end of the next shoreleave, in January 2401, Jovenan received the Innovation Ribbon and the Quantum Reality Service Ribbon for this mission.[17]

Shoreleave 240012-240101

The Artemis spent the shoreleave on Betazed.

Jovenan was invited to a ritual held to the alternate universe counterpart of Jaseb Chevalier by Petty Officer Damien Black, together with Doctor Adea. Chevalier's counterpart, Jaseb, had died during the previous mission and had apparently addressed Jovenan's counterpart as his friend before his death. The event consisted of a ritual washing of the body. Jovenan felt discomfort about touching a dead person, but when on with the ritual nevertheless. They discussed matters of spirituality and religion.[18][19]

Dakora visited Jovenan at the Artemis Science Centre. He wanted to talk about how Jovenan was feeling after the mission, but Jovenan could tell that the mission had been challenging to Dakora as well. They tried helping each other, and they became closer as a result.[20][21]

Silveira visited Jovenan's quarters on day. Silveira wanted to erect a memorial to the alternate universe Jovenan, with whom he had begun a relationship before her death. He wanted to know about Edo funeral rites. They also discussed their relation with alternate Jovenan, and Jovenan learnt about how much Silveira cared about alternate Jovenan. They ended up comforting each other after they both blamed oneself of her death.[22] Later, Silveira invited Jovenan to the memorial service in the Arboretum. There, they said goodbye to the alternate universe Jovenan, whose memorial stone stood next to an oak tree in a quiet corner of the room.[23]

USS Ronin, to which Hiro was transferred.

After Hiro was released from the sickbay, he surprised Jovenan in a lab. He came there using his support chair asked her to join her on a dinner. They went to Elysium, where they discussed how they were faring and what had happened during Hiro's time in sickbay. Jovenan told him how much she was afraid of losing him, and he comforted her by telling that those who you care about can never be truly gone.[24][25] His words came in need soon. After getting out of his support chair, Hiro unexpectedly asked Jovenan to his quarters, where he showed her a transfer order he had just received. He was to report to the USS Ronin the next day, by the orders of Commander Niac. After the initial shock and Hiro's comforting words, including “I love you, sis”, Jovenan hugged him and told him she loved him as well. They promised to keep contact.[26]

Before Hiro's departure, Adea asked Jovenan to join him to Dekoa, a village on Betazed where he had been born. They were taking Toto, Adea's pet dog to a vet, although Jovenan suspected Adea wanted an excuse to visit his old home.[27] Walking through the village, Adea told her he hadn't been to there since he had left for the Academy, and Jovenan in return told him she hadn't been to her homeworld since her enrollment to the Academy as well.[28] In the reception to the vet's office, the receptionist recognized Adea's name but not him. This provoked Jovenan to ask if there would be anyone in the village who would still remember him. He said there was a girl he knew. The receptionist informed them the vet was ready to receive them. When they entered, they found out that the vet was in matter of fact Doctor Tevet Elain, the same girl Adea had mentioned a moment before.[29] They learnt that Doctor Elain had acquired the vet's office after it an incident involving Adea's father. She also told that Adea had been an important influence for her to become a vet.[30] Elain and Adea told about their respective news and joked around, but when Elain heard that Toto had been caught in a bathroom for days during the previous mission, she began to question if a starship was a safe space for a dog. Jovenan tried defending Adea, but Elain shot her down quickly.[31] They argued for a moment, but eventually they agreed about steps how to make Toto feel more safe. Elain had to keep working, but they agreed to meet her after work.[32]

Jovenan also had a medical checkup done by Doctor Sadar,[33], and she took part in a fire drill held by Ensign Jaseb Chevalier.[34]

At the end of the shoreleave, the crew held an awards ceremony at the Fifth Chalice bar in Oxeania, Betazed. Jovenan was promoted to full lieutenant and was appointed to the Chief Science Officer.[35] During the ceremony, Jovenan agreed with Sadar and Silveira that they would held a “cooking date” sometime in the future.[36]

Note that the next mission began immediately following the events in the awards ceremony.
Alternate History
Alternate History (Artemis)
Note that this mission began immediately following the events in the awards ceremony during the previous shoreleave.

Jovenan was talking with Sadar and Silveira in the Fifth Chalice bar in Oxeania, Betazed at the end of the awards ceremony. Unexpectedly, a loud fingersnap was heard, and Jovenan found herself in a completely different location with Adea and Sadar. Adea noticed a person out of the window, recognizing them as CloQ, a member of the Q Continuum with fixation in time and hatred towards the current Artemis crew. He also recognizes the building as his childhood home where he and Jovenan visited earlier during the shoreleave, but certain differences revealed they were now around the year 2375. A Dominion vessel flies above the house, which was something that couldn't have happened in that timeframe, indicating they were in an alternate timeline. They try to reach the Artemis, but can't get a comsignal.[37]

Map of Betazed. Adea's childhood town Dekoa marked by the Thaxan Ocean.

Planning their next move, they hear someone else with them in the building. The person turns out to be child Tevet Elain of that timeline, threatening them with a knife. From Elain's perspective, the officers are intruders and she insists they leave. However, when they attempt to leave, CloQ stops them from doing so. The team tries to talk with Elain, hoping to create a connection to her, prevent her from attacking her and possibly learning more.[38] They learn that the counterpart of Adea and his family have been taken to a camp by the Dominion, while Elain has remained here to take care of animals in the basement. The team promises to help Elain with the animals and convince her to let them see them. Finding that the animals have only minor issues, they offer help to them.[39]

Jovenan accidentally slips out Elain's first name which she learnt during the visit there on shoreleave. Elain remembers that she had not in matter of fact revealed it to her, immediately raising her suspicions and preparing to fight the team again. While Jovenan is terrified of the prospect she might have violated the Temporal Prime Directive, Adea reveals that they are from the future and that he is the same Genkos that Elain knew. This calms down Elain who insists more evidence, and Jovenan and Adea allow her to read their memories.[40] They manage to get the trust of Elain, who joins them. After discussing what Adea knows of CloQ and the threath they pose to the team, they go on to investigate the house, finding Adea's father's trashed study and a broken computer terminal.[41]

After they manage to fix the terminal, Adea and Sadar try to clean up the room and find out what was taken, while Jovenan studies the computer records to figure out what caused the timelines to diverge. She spots that the Romulans didn't join the Alliance in time for the First Battle of Chin'toka, which ended up as a defeat for the Alliance, unlike in the prime timeline.[42] However, as they are discussing the finding, the others find a inscription written to the back of a bookself, which triggers CloQ to appear in front of them.[43] Despite Elain insulting CloQ, they manage to learn that CloQ has sent them here because of Dakora's "mother issues" and Adea's "traumas", at least that's what they claim.[44]

After CloQ leaves, the team continues to discuss Jovenan's findings. Sadar remembers that the Romulans joined the Alliance after the assassination of Senator Vreenek, and after they couldn't find evidence of his death in this timeline, they start to believe his survival is the divergence point between the timelines. Adea believes CloQ would have left "portals" to other times and places like in his previous encounters with them, prompting them to seek one in the house. Sadar finds one behind the window in the study.[44] They discover the portal takes them to the time just before when Senator Vreenek was assassinated, and, despite the objections by Jovenan and Sadar, Adea decides they must go through the portal and fake the Senator's assassination.[45]

Jovenan in Romulan disguise

After some hesitation, the team steps through the portal and find themselves on a walkway between two buildings in a large city. Jovenan determines they must be in Ki Baratan, the Romulan capital on Romulus before the planet's later destruction. Planning their next move, they decide they must look for disguises.[46] After witnessing a Dominion vessel fly over them, they go into one of the buildings, finding Ensign Gnai inside, much to their surprise. A new crewmember, it had been left there by CloQ. After only a brief introduction, the team must move on.[47] However, a Romulan civilian enters the room, and the team must start chasing him to avoid being reported to the authorities. Sadar falls a flight of stairs, blocking the Romulan, who is then knocked out by Adea. Jovenan and Gnai put the unconscious Romulan to a closet and take his PADD.[48]

The team decides that they need disguises, and since Jovenan is closest to the size in the Romulan they captured, she puts on his clothes.[49] Meanwhile, Sadar and Gnai find the map of the building and the city from the PADD, locating a workshop or a laboratory on a lower floor. Disguised as a Romulan, Jovenan leads the way, managing to convince a local that she is also a Romulan working in the building. She finds the workshop/lab empty and lets the rest of the team inside.[50] In the workshop, they find engineering tools which they believe will help them blend in. They also notice a turret attached to the building, wondering if they could use it against the Senator's shuttle. Sadar creates prothesis and a wig for Jovenan, who puts them on to complete her disguise.[51] They finish the rest of the disguises, draft a plan and hide their uniforms while Jovenan destroyes her Edo community leader necklace.[52]

The team walks upstairs to the turret in disguises, Jovenan and Adea as Romulans, Gnai as a robot and Sadar as the robot's operator. Pretending to be a maintenance team, the team is allowed to pass to the turret, despite the guards initially being against allowing Sadar, an alien, to enter. In the turret, Adea and Jovenan look at the controls while the others work to frame the Dominion for the attack.[53] Jovenan identifies the Senator's shuttle, and the team takes control of the turret.[54] Adea fires, hitting the shuttle. However, the damaged shuttle turns and falls on the turret, destroying it and killing everyone in it.[55]

Meanwhile, CloQ has been observing everyone's progress. The plan to correct the timeline by killing the Senator fails as the Romulans found out about Starfleet's involvement, resulting in a war between the Federation and the Romulans. Eventually, a Betazoid Empire arose from the ashes. CloQ rewinds time a few milliseconds and relocates the crew to the new future Jovenan and her team had inadvertedly created.[56]

Deep Space 9

CloQ summons Jovenan, Sadar, Silveira and Dakora to their realm.[57] CloQ has a new game prepared for them. After Jovenan objects on the grounds that they had already fixed the timeline by killing the Senator, CloQ reveals that their attempt had failed. To allow them to try fixing the timeline again, CloQ sends the team to back to Deep Space 9, just a little before the assassination of the Senator in the prime timeline. On DS9, the team learns that CloQ has frozen time for people there, allowing the team to snoop around freely.[58] Reading PADDs from the table of Captain Sisko of DS9, Jovenan learned that he had negotiated the release of Grathon Tolar, a death row criminal, from the Klingon Empire. After the team continues to find more weird details about Tolar's stay on DS9, the team decides to investigate him on a holosuite where he happened to be at the time with a Cardassian tailor.[59]

On the holosuite, the team finds Tolar and the tailor preparing a holoprogram featuring Cardassian soldiers and a Vorta. Studying the setting, the team learns more about the setting. It seems to them that the two are creating the holoprogram for Sisko with the intention of fooling the Senator into thinking the Dominion is planning an attack against Romulus, dragging them into the war. It also seems that Sisko might be related to the assassination of the Senator.[60] CloQ sends the team a bit into the future, when Sisko was meeting with Vreenak. They find out that the fake recording failed, which leads to the team understanding that Sisko had the motivation to assassinate him to avoid the Romulans to know of the attempt.[61] As the team cannot locate the tailor, CloQ reveals that the tailor had indeed planted a bomb on the Senator's shuttle with Sisko's approval. Morally conflicted, the team is send to the correct timeline, aboard the Artemis with the rest of the crew by Deep Space 9.[62]

Shoreleave 240104
Bajor

The Artemis spent the shoreleave on Deep Space 9 and on Bajor.

Jovenan invited Ensigns Chevalier, Savel and Gnai as well as Crewman Renirs to a tricorder analysis field training. After boarding the shuttle Kerynitis, Jovenan briefed the trainees of their mission: they would study the soil and water in a remote area in Rakantha Province of Bajor, which was poisoned by the Cardassians during the Occupation of Bajor. She assigned Savel and Chevalier to investigate the soil and Gnai and Renirs to study the local river.[63] Landing in their designated location, they found the area barren of life. The pairs split up and went on their ways to investigate their respective assignments while Jovenan supervised them from the shuttle.[64] After a while, she joined Savel and Chevalier, and soon after, went on to find Gnai and Renirs after they discovered a cave they wanted to investigate.[65]

When Jovenan arrived to the cave, Gnai and Renirs shouted to her and warned her not to enter. Renirs had stepped on what they believed was a mine and was injured. After asking them for more information, Jovenan ended the exercise and called Savel and Chevalier for help.[66] When the remainder of the team was gathered outside, they discovered that the cave had been laced with transporter resistant minerals by the previous residents. However, they believed that transporter boosters could help them enought to get their people out. Savel and Chevalier went in with the boosters, while Jovenan coordinated and supported from outside. However, Chevalier soon stepped on a mine as well, but it didn't go off before he would lift his foot. Savel managed to set up the boosters alone, and Jovenan transported all but Chevalier and herself to the shuttle.[67] Jovenan went in to rescue Chevalier, but he couldn't hold his foot put and the mine went off. Chevalier lost his leg and suffered major injuries, while Jovenan took a lesser hit. Devastated, she went to give him first aid and then started pulling his barely conscious body towards the booster.[68] They were soon after that beamed to the shuttle.[69]

Later, after she had been cleared from her injuries on Bajor, Jovenan was invited by Silveira to come and join him and Sadar to a cooking get-together they had planned before the previous mission. They met in Holodeck 2, where Silveira had prepared a large kitchen.[70]

Personal life


Personality

Look Nan, I have seen you grow in the face of adversity. And grow in the right direction.

Jovenan is generally shy, although she has grown bolder over the time in Starfleet. Her bad experiences after moving out of her homeworld made her avoid touching other people and being too close with anyone, easily blaming herself of violating others’ personal area. Even after her graduation from the Academy, Jovenan was skittish about senior officers. While her “fear” of them has diminished as she has become more familiar with the crew and she has risen in ranks, she still tends to be formal around them.

She enjoys running. She has taken a habit of going for a run in the ship’s Fitness Centre, although she would prefer runs or longer treks in nature. The limited space on the ship and social expectations prevent her from running everywhere, which she prefers over constant walking. This sometimes makes her feel confined.

For cultural and health reasons, Jovenan eats typically vegan food. She isn’t opposed to eating meat or other animal-based food but won’t do so without a reason.

Having grown up with strict Edo law, which at the time required death penalty for all crimes, Jovenan has had difficulty in adjusting to the more relaxed moral code. She has poor tolerance of misbehaviour and may sometimes mentally judge people for their missteps from the legal codes. Still, she can also be not as black-and-white as she was raised to be, understanding that some actions might be necessary even if not strictly within the letter of the law.

Jovenan is a follower of the Edo religion. Since the Edo God is a physical, albeit transdimensional, entity, she and the most Edo consider them a part of the reality and not as much something that needs to be believed in. Jovenan has a religious symbol in her quarters, and she prays occasionally. She, however, does not believe in spirits of the dead or other spiritual teachings of her culture.

She speaks Somian, one of the Rubicun Edo languages/dialects spoken in her home region. Thanks to the University and Academy language courses, she can also speak decent Federation Standard and some Betazoid. Her other language skills are minimal.

Style

While on service, Jovenan typically wears the skant variant of the Artemis standard sciences division uniform. She opted to wear the skant variant due to comfort and familiarity to the Edo clothing, despite having suppressed her Edo habits in public. If needed in cooler environments, she also has the basic version of the uniform, in addition to the thermal layers provided by Doctor Adea when she first joined the Excalibur. She typically wears her hair tied to a ponytail or similar style with a blue hair tie.

During off-hours when alone, she prefers to don more typical Edo clothes, such as her light pink romper. She has no problem wearing such revealing clothes when alone or with other Edo, but never wears them with off-worlders due to their reactions. When in civilian clothes with off-worlders, she usually wears typical Earth clothes, such as trousers, t-shirts and skirts.

She has an Edo Community leader’s necklace, which she received from her family. She wears it often under the uniform turtleneck.

Quarters

Jovenan’s quarters are located on Deck 3, Sector 03, Compartment 17. She had lived in shared quarters on a lower deck while an Ensign, although the second berth had happened to be empty for the entire duration. After being promoted to the Lieutenant JG, she moved to the upper deck with senior officers, to her own quarters.

As of yet, she doesn’t have many items to decorate her room with. She has some flowers, an Edo religious symbol and books around the room. She often listens to Edo music in the privacy of her quarters.

Jovenan’s parents love and support her very much, even if they don’t always understand her.
Jovenan: I was… I didn’t always fit in. I love my family and my home, and they love and care about me, but I didn’t always have the same… mindset about everything. They respected it, but I still felt an outsider.[72]
Noimage.jpg 1 full brother, 3 maternal half-siblings, 4 paternal half-siblings Supportive older siblings. Lovable little scoundrels for younger siblings.
Noimage.jpg Several other communal parents and siblings Being raised communally, Jovenan considers many of the older adults in her community her parents and kids her age her siblings.
Jovenan (Shint War Alternate).png Jovenan
Twin sister I hardly knew
Jovenans’ meeting was very unexpected and initially unfriendly. Alternate universe Jovenan ended up in the same universe with Jovenan by coincidence and appeared schemy and suspicious to her. However, after alternate Jovenan lost her life to safe the Artemis, Jovenan began to regard her as her sister.

Friends who are family

HiroJones.jpg Hiro Jones
Space brother
Hiro joined the Excalibur soon after Jovenan, and they have served until his transfer to the Ronin. Finding Hiro easy to approach, Jovenan has spent much time with him, including freejumping across empty space and watching stars in the Astrometrics. During one emotional discussion, Jovenan admitted viewing the crew as family and called Hiro her brother, a title he was happy to receive. She was saddened when he left to another ship.
Jones: Jovenan, listen very carefully. One: You never ever have to apologize for being your genuine self with me. I will never judge you for it, hold it against you, or think any less of you for it. I will always be someone with whom you can be free and honest, ok? That's a promise. Two: I never had any siblings. I didn't really even have many friends until fairly recently. I'm thrilled to be called your friend, and it is the highest honor I can think to be called your brother.[73]
Jones: Hey, I promise you: I will keep in touch. You’re going to hear from me all the time. I love you, sis. A few lightyears between us isn’t changing that.[26]
Jovenan: And you better tell Commander Niac I don’t appreciate him stealing my brother.
Jones: ::a choked giggle:: I don’t want to terrify my new CO right off the bat.[26]

Friends

Sil-Picard Uniform.png Vitor Silveira
Man of Metal
During their first shared mission on Artemis, Silveira took punches and even an sword through him. Impressively, he continued to direct Jovenan with clear and sensible orders. He later had a brief romance with Jovenan’s alternate universe counterpart until her death. Dealing with it brought the two closer together
Silveira: I am truly very proud of you. You are one of the best officers I ever served with. And an example to follow. ::He raised his finger as if to add a point.:: Correction your an example I follow. Very well done.
Jovenan: ::confused, blinking fast:: I… Excuse me… sir?[74]
Jovenan: I was with you around that time, remember? We couldn’t have taken the bridge if it weren’t for you. We needed you, I needed you. You saved many more lives that day. She would have been proud of you. I am.[22]
Jovenan: Thank you, Vitor. You’re a good friend.
Silveira: You too. I hope you forgive me, but I now feel closer to you. Like family.[22]
JK - Red Picard v5.jpg Talos Dakora
Action hero with a soft side
When Jovenan first met him, she wary of him. After a partially failed covert mission Jovenan had gotten herself into, Dakora came to their rescue. Jovenan noticed that he wasn’t the dangerous spy charicature after all. The events following them meeting their alternate universe counterparts lead them to become closer.
Jovenan: I mean it. When I first joined the Excalibur, I was terrified of everyone. You in particular. I didn’t know you or what you do, and to me you seemed like a secretive, tough spy who could read my thoughts. But over time, I’ve got to know you more, and I’m not scared of you anymore. ::looks at him:: When I said you’re a good person, I meant it.[21]
Dakora: You, of course, have been a positive ray of sunshine the entire time I’ve known you. ::He placed a hand on her on her shoulder and chuckled.:: Though, I’m embarrassed to admit that I was a little worried you and I might not get along because I like to occasionally play a bit fast-and-loose with the rules. ::He waved his other hand dismissively.:: Figured you'd soon be calling for my execution or something ridiculous like that.[21]

Highly respected colleagues

2400-MacKenzie-WM-Long.png Addison MacKenzie
The adventure maker
Jovenan’s first XO on the Excalibur and CO on the Artemis. Jovenan didn’t meet her until after her rescue mission and learnt quickly to appreciate her dedication.
Jovenan: Th- Thank you for your confidence, sir. I’ll try to live up your expectations.
MacKenzie: Expectations, perhaps not. More like, possibility. I will say that you’ve demonstrated critical thinking and good judgment in your time here so far. That counts for a lot in my book.[75]
Adea-2400-CMO-Coat.png Genkos Adea
Early source of reliance
Not only is Adea Jovenan’s CMO on the Excalibur and the Artemis, he was her Academy final training officer. This made him the first approachable officer after assignment.
Adea: You want to know everything there is to know about Genkos, eh? ::he chortled:: Well, I’m not going to tell you everything I’ve ever done - we don’t have enough time, and there’s several past girlfriends, and at least one boyfriend who wouldn’t be best pleased.[76]
Sadar-2400.png Gila Sadar
More capable than she believes
Doctor Sadar might not be the bravest or boldest individual, but Jovenan has quickly learnt she can always trust her skills and integrity in every situation.

Old friends

Kawarda.jpg Kawarda
Valued colleague, great supporter
Jovenan and Kawarda both served as science officers on Artemis, and Excalibur before that. Kawarda has come in her rescue in more than one occasion, and she values greatly his work and support.
Kawarda: Ensign Jovenan, you did a good job. You should be proud of yourself. ::a pause to consider:: Would ... you like a hug?[77]
Luxa Lorana Ensign Self.png
Luxa Lorana
The wild scientist
They first met when Luxa charged to a fight, roaring. Later Jovenan rescued her unconscious body from a cliffside ledge after she had tried to do that again.

Former colleagues

Kali2012b.jpg
Kali Nicholotti
You will always remember your first captain
Nicholotti became Jovenan’s first CO when she was assigned to the Excalibur. Even though they have only met a few time, Jovenan holds her in great respect.
Nicholotti: =/\= Well, you've done great getting us this far, Ensign. Thank you. =/\=[78]
Seta Jinean LT.png Seta Jinean
Pacifier
Jovenan had worked with Seta in conditions where neither of them were too sure about themselves. Not only that, Seta has amazing counselling skills that can soothe even Jovenan.
Seta: I think being scared is very normal, and having doubts is... normal too. The last few weeks were a lot more stressful than life in Starfleet has any right to be. I was scared too, or at the very least unsure what to do, and I've been in Starfleet for a while now.[79]
Niac.jpg Karrod Niac
He took me out once… no, not like that
Jovenan and Niac’s service together on the Excalibur was brief but eventful. Niac brougth Jovenan and other ensigns to a spacewalk that ended up with them having to jump across empty space.
