Background


Mikeja Norven was born on Trill in the capital city of Leran Manev. His mother, Arja, died due to unexpected complications from Mikeja’s birth. He has an older brother, Riim, who is an exo-botanist.

As a boy, Mikeja became fascinated with two things: the way things worked and the Trill symbiosis. His father was an office administrator who didn’t care about the symbionts or joining. Mikeja always wanted to make his father proud, so he decided to try to become an initiate so he could hopefully join and show his father how great he truly was.

At age 18, and after years of intense training and hard work, Mikeja was ultimately rejected by the initiate program. He spent weeks lobbying the Symbiosis Commission to give him a second chance, but his pleas fell mostly on deaf ears.

Dr. Vessa Lan, the Initiate Program’s Chief Physician and a Commission Advisor, offered to take Mikeja on as her personal assistant as she saw a great determination in him. Mikeja assumed this was his chance to become an initiate and one day become joined. After four years of being the Doctor’s assistant, while still going to school full-time and earning an Engineering degree, Mikeja was never formally given the title of initiate. Vessa was very demanding of her protege and would push the young Trill with her own unique brand of mentorship. She was almost Vulcan in her demeanor; overconfident and fairly dispassionate, but very intelligent. Mikeja considered her to be a “ self-righteous know-it-all.” Even though the two would clash at times due to differing opinions, they considered each other as friends.

Eventually, Mikeja decided his time was running out to do something meaningful with his life. At age 23, he applied for and was accepted to Starfleet Academy. Dr. Lan offered to accompany him to Earth as she was to attend a medical conference there.

During the flight to Earth, while Mikeja and Dr. Lan were taking part in a tour of the starship’s engineering section, a faulty plasma conduit ruptured. Dr. Lan was mortally wounded and the symbiont she carried was in danger of dying if it wasn’t joined with a new host. Mikeja was the only unjoined Trill on board the ship. As a result, just before Vessa died, the symbiont was joined with Mikeja and he became known as Mikeja Lan, the second host of the Lan symbiont.

Mikeja immediately returned to Trill and went through intense counselling and extra training with the Symbiosis Commission to try and come to grips with being a joined Trill. After over a year, and feeling more confident in himself and his new identity, Mikeja re-applied to Starfleet Academy and was accepted at age 26, where he majored in Engineering
