* '''[[Regan Wilde ]]''': Flashy and outgoing pretty-boy - the two are too similar to be anything but friends, but different enough to regularly drive each other crazy too. Maria is particularly close with Regan after he reached out and made her feel at home after a rocky first mission, despite having a fairly explosive start to their friendship. The two are playmates, confidants, partners-in-crime, and may eventually even be best friends if they can figure out their differences and continue to open up. * '''[[Cassandra Mason ]]''': The two are still getting to know each other, but Maria has already shared more about her life before Starfleet with Cassie than anyone else on the ''Arrow''. Despite Maria's bullish exuberance and Cassie's self-conscious timidity, they seem to have plenty in common as well. They get along exceptionally well and have created the beginnings of a close friendship. * '''[[Randal Shayne ]]''' : Maria's captain on the ''Arrow''. It was pretty clear almost immediately the two wouldn't see eye-to-eye, with Maria's off-the-wall sense of humor and dangerously clever individuality no doubt shortening the captain's life expectancy. Maria views her captain as something of a rigid, emotionally closed-off authoritarian to be avoided or outwitted. Still, she harbors a sneaking respect for his abilities however antagonistic the relationship may be - not that she'd ever tell him. * '''[[Quentin Collins ]]''' : Maria's XO on the ''Arrow''. Maria finds the man awkward, but likeable enough. The relationship started on a pretty bad foot after misjudgements on both sides. However, the two have managed to reconcile, sharing a bond over music on the late-night shift aboard ''Arrow''. Still, it's far from certain just how these two will treat each other going forward. * '''[[Chloe Waters ]]''': Maria's roommate on the Arrow. Maria doesn't overly mind her roommate, though it would be hard to find a more different pair of human women. Her boisterousness and humor put Chloe in an awkward spot more often than not, but never from malicious intent. Maria doesn't really understand or have much patience for Chloe's closeted, dry, and shy personality, but it doesn't bug her much either. * '''[[R'Ariel ]]''': ''Arrow's'' counselor seems like almost a natural fit for the kind of person Maria seeks out: kind, clever, and capable. Maria admires her way with words as well as her thoughtfulness. The two share a love of food and drink, and Maria has promised she'll have to make her family's asado for R'Ariel.

* '''Shoreleave 239802.25 - Present''': Maria started out the leave with little to do other than paperwork, leaving her in a bit of a bored bind. She spent a fair bit of her early leave with her friend, Regan - emceeing "FSB" and consoling him about long lost love, Nicholas Rehme. During the same discussion, Maria discovers her roommate, Chloe, might be harboring a growing crush on R'Ariel, and she meets the ship's new doctor, Cassie Mason. She eventually returns to her doldrums though, worse than ever. She ends up improvising a rap during the bridge night watch with Collins that cuts some of the tension, and the two end up reconciling and sharing music and drinks while the watch finishes. It's still not enough, and in an attempt to escape dwelling on her past, she invents a project to build a holodeck aboard the ''Arrow''. Her first step is to justify the need of such a construction, and prove its viability. In the course of doing so, she winds up taking likeable R'Ariel out for drinks and having a surprisingly in-depth conversation about identity, siblings, myths, and legends. Soon after, she's compiling data, and discovers Regan is being transferred off of ''Arrow'' by his father. Upset, she confronts him, and is frustrated when he refuses to fight the transfer even though he doesn't want to go. The next day, she goes to sickbay to gather more data for pitching the holodeck, but winds up making a new friend when she confides in Cassie about Regan, and shares a conversation about joining Starfleet and Maria's past. Maria is delighted later when Regan asks her to help him stop the transfer once and for all - she takes internal sensors offline long enough for Regan to have a private conversation with his father. That complete, she finally pitches her idea of a holodeck to the Captain and the Engineering team. Afterwards, she has an antagonistic confrontation with Shayne over what to do with the Sheliak linguistic data ''Arrow'' gathered, but more importantly the events of Regan's transfer. She eventually reaches a truce with the Captain, only backing down from her position when the alternative is a transfer. She's awarded a second '''Innovation Ribbon''' for her efforts assisting in closing the Iconian Portal on Theta 122.
* '''[[Miracle of Venthis (Arrow)]] 239803.30 -
Present''': The ''Arrow'' is assigned to Second Contact with the people of the planet Venthis. Venthis had been in a global catastrophic civil war for nearly two hundred years before the fighting suddenly stopped eighteen months ago. After First Contact with the ''Arkhipov'', the Venthis have petitioned for membership in the United Federation of Planets. ''Arrow'' is tasked with evaluating the planet for membership and discovering the reason for their new technological advancement in such a short time. Maria is tasked with running a survey of a large debris field surrounding the planet, hunting for clues as to the technological advancement. She doesn't get very far before the ship suddenly locks down, every console aboard displaying a Greek Omega symbol. After releasing the lockout, the captain abruptly re-tasks her to building a quantum resonance chamber with Hayley Caden. ..
