Lieutenant Commander Kirsty Carpenter is currently in the process of being reassigned to Chief of Security/Tactical for the USS Ronin. Whether she likes it or not...

  • Hobbies and Pastimes: Doing complicated puzzles and models. Reading mystery novels (secretly). Moderate conditioning. Journaling (VERY secretly).
  • Likes: Locked doors, strong drinks, a finely tuned phaser, learning new ways to fight back, but above all, being useful (saving people).

The Story So Far...

Kirsty Lee Carpenter was born into a humble, but devout home. Situated off the back roads of Hemingford Home, Nebraska, the Carpenter Farm hadn't produced corn in years, but brought forth a healthy and screaming baby girl into a world just on the verge of moving on. Just like Kirsty's father did barely a year into her existence.

But even so, both her and her hardy, Bible-thumping mother Sidney Anne made a nice life for themselves as Kirsty grew from squalling babe into a tall and strong young adult. Around that time, Sidney Anne's churching had started to grate on the young Kirsty and as young adults are want to do, she started looking toward the sort of life she could make for herself outside of Nebraska and the piousness of her ma. Like a lot of her peers in Gatlin High, the military seemed to offer the best (and quickest) way out and she joined up barely a year out of high school.

From there, Kirsty learned to love and appreciate the rigidity and form of military life. Though she still sent occasional holo-missives and money back to Hemingford Home, she realized very quickly that the REAL action was happening off-planet. And she resolved herself to be right in the middle of that action. She worked hard and trained even harder, gaining martial skills and a strong reputation as a hard worker. Soon after, she caught the eye of Starfleet SAR. A representative officer reached out to her civilian CO and offered her a spot on a Starfleet SAR team. "Zero Company" to be exact, a sort of rag-tag group of "breachers" who had been loaned to a number of Sol based police outfits to help them with higher level operations. Kirsty, being a brash and bold new 1st LT, jumped at the chance.

And it was with "Zero Company" her life changed forever...

Though her first year with the company was all but a breeze. Led by human XO, Captain Kurt Faraday, Kirsty was first out the door on a number of successful operations. Alongside Faraday's "right hand lizard" Major Sunrom (Saurian Special Forces) and Warrant Officers Beam (a Terran SWAT expert) & Joran (former Maquis), "Zero Company" assisted on a number of collars and operations, including a particularly hairy hostage negotiation between the Fenris Rangers and remnants of "The People" of the Aavaro Wilds. But everything changed with Phobos. Where a sadistic Breen criminal by the name of Jos'om Verrhess awaited with his equally debased gang of "followers".

Starting with a pitched robbery in the Northern Hemisphere of the moon and even more harrowing pursuit back to their compound hideout on the other side of the moon, "Zero Company" was called into to assist the Martian Defense Force. But as soon as the company made moonfall, they could see this was no ordinary criminal. The outside of the compound was armored for siege conditions and already external weapon systems had been sighted and neutralized by the Martian agents. The whole of the company felt uneasy, a fact Kirsty even noted in the many, many official reports (later sealed) about the events. But the Martian Commander was eager for the collar and all but forced his men and "Zero" to breach into the compound.

Kirsty has yet to reveal what exactly happened on Phobos but what is known is that she alone survived the experience. From later Security reports and Counseling debriefs, the compound had been set up with traps and anti-personnel devices of Verrhess' own design. Some of which decimating the Martians almost immediately. From there the survivors were plunged into what Kirsty described as a "house of horrors" where Jos'om and his gang hunted "Zero Company" one-by-one. Somehow, someway Kirsty alone survived. But as her injuries suggested, not without great personal cost to her body and mind. She was picked up later by MDF reinforcements almost a full two days later and then transferred to Starbase 1 for recovery.

From there, a once promising career became marred with near-constant reassignment and bouts of insubordination (usually directed by the "boneheaded civvies" (her words) that now populated her operations). Though barely scratching to the Marine rank of Major (mostly due to her continually improving skills and conditioning), it seemed Kirsty Carpenter's career would meet an early end.

That is until an unexpected reassignment to the Alpha Isles...

Is this Kirsty's last stop in a career hamstrung by tragedy? Or is it her last chance to finally be the officer she (and her taken compatriots) always knew she could be?

Only time will tell...
