Early Life

Tasnim "Taz" Shandres

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.

As a refugee picked up by the USS Ronin-A, Taz has since shown an interest in engineering, following Chief Engineer Evan Delano around as an "engineer's assistant," much to her mother's disapproval.

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.

She lived with Rahman on the Invicta before moving with her father's prime counterpart Ki Shandres, who was posted to the Starfleet Anex on Esperance near the Shoals.

Starfleet Career

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.
