Crewman Tasnim "Taz" Shandres is the 21-year-old Kriosian/Betazoid daughter of Ki and Roshanara Shandres in an alternate universe where the Federation lost the Dominion War. She is currently an engineering technician aboard the USS Veritas.
Born in 2377, Taz only knows of her mother's home through stories. Her father also disappeared when she was young, presumably killed fighting the Dominion on Betazed.
In 2392, the Ronin encountered the USS Invicta from the prime universe. Her mother secured refuge aboard the Invicta with her prime counterpart Roshanara Rahman, the ship's first officer, so that both of them could escape to the prime universe. However, when the Invicta returned through the quantum fissure back to the prime universe, any "alternate" iterations of people who were aboard vanished, presumably returning back to their universe, which left Taz alone on the Invicta.
Though her mother had wanted Taz to stay away from Starfleet, Taz always kept her interest in starships and the service. Seeing the Veritas crew's actions in the aftermath of Jilor's attack on Antor II in 2394 cemented her decision to enlist in Starfleet later that year. She was subsequently posted to the USS Veritas in 2395 as an engineering trainee.
In 2396, she was promoted to Crewman Third Class and continued to serve as the Engineering Department's administrative assistant. In 2397, she was reassigned as a components engineering technician.
