Meru was born in 2375 and spent her early childhood on Deep Space Nine where her mother was posted with the Bajoran militia, though her family made frequent visits and eventually moved to her uncle’s farm in Bajor's Kendra Province to accommodate her father's progressing disability. Meru had no siblings so she cherished time spent with her two younger cousins on the farm. She spent her spare time reading about distant planets and pestering her mother into letting Meru shadow her on her visits to the space station, solidifying her desire to one day join Starfleet despite her parents' reservations.

Meru has dyscalculia and as a result failed the math portion of the Starfleet Academy entrance exam the first time she took it. She retook it the next year after more intensive study and passed, entering the Academy at age 19.



  • Ico Ena - Meru’s best friend. The two met at the Academy after accidentally signing up for Intro Cardassian instead of Intro Cartography. They have a lot in common and were reunited when the Gorkon participated in a mission to rescue Ena and her classmates on Darime IV.
  • Megan "Meg" Bendyn - The two literally ran into each other on the Gorkon and found they shared an interest in botany. Meru appreciates Meg’s cheerful demeanor.

    • Valis Renas ("Ren") - Starfleet Cadet 4th Class.
