Samantha (Sam) was born the only child of Blair and Simon Steinberg. As a child she always enjoyed science and decided that a career path of science was the way to go. The only problem was, Sam's parents were both Starfleet. They wanted her to go Starfleet, but Sam had her own plans. At the age of 16, She attended Oxford University in England. There she received her PHD in Physics.
At the end of her University career (which would make her 22 now) Sam was raped and left for dead. Sam managed to survive but came pregnant from the situation. Nine Months later Jeremy was born. Jeremy gave Sam life once again. She worked for the university as a lecturer. Life seemed to be going great for Sam.
A month after Jeremy was born, the child's father paid Sam an unexpected visit. She once again attacked Sam. He then took the infant. Sam was in a coma for a month after that. It was not until she woke up that she found out that her son was killed, and already buried.
Sam no longer wanted to stay in England. She chooses to Join Starfleet. With her Degree, she was able to get exempt from the math and science courses and she found herself as an ensign when she was 25. She was by far the oldest member of her graduating class.
Sam worked hard and rose in rank slowly. She was assigned to the USS Constitution where she met her husband Marc Torrance. Immediately after the two were transferred to SB118, the two married and became pregnant. Sam's world shattered the day Marc died. She was not prepared for what would happen next.
