GENERAL INFORMATION

 
Toni relaxing on the a Laudean Beach
  • Personality: Friendly, personable, good sense of humor, emotional to some extent, and has excellent communication skills. She is not afraid of taking on anything new as long as it holds her interest. Anything that does not present a good challenge is deemed boring. She is competitive by nature, and her favorite thing to do involves verbal sparring.
  • Personal Assessment: "I am a 'loner' - unconventional by most standards. I enjoy solitude, but know that is not always possible." In spite of it, her Southern hospitality comes naturally, and is evident in the way she accepts new people.
  • Personal Beliefs: "I believe that people are like fledgling birds. Some stand around flapping their wings, reluctant to leave the nest. Some take off running and fall to the ground. And some go to the edge of the nest, flap their wings and take flight, catching the first breeze and begin to soar. And oh, how I love the solitude of soaring."
  • Pet Peeves: Toni doesn't care for "pet" names when it comes to romance. Any suitor referring to her as sugar, honey, sweetheart, babe or other names like that, may as well hang it up as he already has three strikes against him.
  • Favorite Activity: After nearly four years on Duronis II (the planet the Laudeans call Til'ahn), Toni has made it her home, and her favorite place to be is on the beach playing with her children, whether in the water or building sand castles.

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

When Toni joined Starfleet, she had the naive notion of "living happily ever after" with someone she loved, and have a career too, but that was the one thing Starfleet and the Marines has (as evidenced by her personal relationships and in the timeline below) failed to provide. So far, Toni has fulfilled her duel career instead as Commanding Officer and devoted Mother.

Major Heath West

  • Married to Major Heath West]] on 238507.15 - Courtship and Marriage
  • Their marriage produced two children, Vee by adoption, and Garth by natural birth. Vee and Garth's Godparents are Major Dade Adarnis (Heath's best friend) and Lt. Commander T'Lea (who is like a sister to Toni). Unfortunately, their three-year marriage dissolved due to Kerelian Law marriage dictate, and the fact that Heath was MIA presumed dead. For the sake of their children, Toni had to move on with her life.






1st Lieutenant Brikk Wallace

  • Under the command of Major Heath West, Wallace took it upon himself to help his superior's grieving widow, and having too much to drink one night, they awakened to find that they had slept together. Realizing it was not meant to happen, they decided to just stay away from each other from then on. Little did they know, that one night would produce a pregnancy, and wanting to do the right thing for the child, they considered marriage, but later, Toni lost the baby, and Wallace and Turner parted company for good. And later, when Heath was found alive, she reconciled with him.





Ambassador Tallis Rhul

Just when Toni thought she would concentrate on her career and children, and love would pass her by, a spooky Halloween night proved her wrong. Dressed as Helen of Troy, she met her Paris, each not knowing who the other one was, but before they could reveal their identities, they lost sight of each other. However, she had hopes that they would someday meet again, and they did. Tallis & Toni's Marriage: 239003.17 After her marriage to Ambassador Tallis Rhul, a Bajoran, Toni maintained the name as Toni Turner professionally, but when accompanying her husband, she used a name more fitting for Rhul's Bajoran heritage - Tallis Antonia. Unfortunately, and officially, Ambassador Tallis Rhul was killed defending Til'ahn from a Bluegill infestation that came through an ancient Iconian Gateway, ending their seven-month marriage. Toni was two months pregnant at the time of his death. That pregnancy produced a daughter, Breeana Turner-Tallis.



Colonel Tyr Waltas

  • 239204.08 - After years of knowing Colonel Tyr Waltas, having first met him as a Lt. Commander and he, the Captain of the USS Discovery, Toni and Tyr found that an attraction between them still existed and they began to date. They don't know where the relationship is going, but well, we'll see. A year, almost to the day they started dating, both Tyr and Toni processed their love for each other while guests of Fleet Captain Renos and nir crew the on Outpost Unity.

But both, knowing all too well how difficult it is for a couple in Starfleet, have decided to take any attempt for reconciliation slow and easy. Unfortunately, reconciliation ended in failure when Heath, once again, disappeared without word.
  • 239304.23: A year, almost to the day they started dating, both Tyr and Toni professed their love for each other while guests of Fleet Captain Renos and nir crew the on Outpost Unity.

FRIENDS IN THE FLEET

(Left to Right)

Lieutenant Brell and Toni Turner met as junior officers at the old Embassy to Duronis II. Though they moved on to different assignments and lost contact after Brell left Starfleet, his stories of his times at the embassy often featured their exploits and he remembered her fondly. When he re-enlisted, Toni found that he had been posted to the new Federation Embassy under her command as Rear Admiral. The two greeted each other as old friends and started to get to know one another again. Toni is proud to have her friend back at the Embassy, and for the chance that they have to once again work at the Embassy, to show the Federation's goodwill to the Laudean people just as they had done when they first met.

Marine Captain Hella Born on Bosala II, Hella's parents are Boslic free-traders sanctioned by the Boslic culture, which is much like that of the Ferengi, but more ethical, elegant and charismatic. Although taller and slightly heavier than normal human females, Boslic women are considered quite attractive humanoids, and often described as alluring and seductive. Hella is typical of these traits. She has a smooth vertical arrow-shaped furrow on her forehead and significantly protruding bones along her brow line, accentuating her sparkling eyes. She has flawless skin and long, silky, flowing, hair with purplish tones. She was put on Special Assignment by Heath West to watch over his wife, then Lt. Commander Turner, in in his absence.

PROFESSIONAL INFORMATION

 
Ensign Turner

After graduation from Starfleet Academy, Toni was assigned to her first post as a counselor at the Embassy on Duronis II. It wasn't long before the CMO noticed that she had an aptitude for a career as a Medical Officer and began training her to take over his job when he retired. The more she learned the more she wanted to learn, so she enrolled into a correspondence course studying for her degree and interning under the CMO's direction. Most things she learned from watching him, and when he retired, she stepped into the role of CMO, but kept up her studies until she had enough credits to become a full fledged Doctor of Medicine. It was during this time of learning that Toni realized that she could accomplish anything, as long as she wanted it bad enough.

On 238601.17 her days as a surgeon came to an abrupt end, when during a battle her hand was severed by a Jem'Hadar's sword. Although it was replaced bionically, it never functioned properly. She struggled with it until 2388, when Lt. Commander Alucard Vess, at the time CMO on the USS Thunder, cloned a new hand for her. It took some getting use to, but the procedure was as success, and since she has enjoyed a fully functioning hand.

It took some getting use to, but the procedure was as success, and since then, she has enjoyed a fully functioning hand.

In 2388, immediately after the Destruction of Romulus and Remus, rioting broke out as anti-Romulan protesters took to the streets in an attempt to drive Romulan forces from the planet. The Romulan Ambassador was recalled to help with more pressing diplomatic issues elsewhere, but a number of Romulan operatives remained in control of government ministries. The Laudeans, having watched their culture deteriorate during their alliance with the Romulans, took the opportunity to contact the Federation, inviting them back to Duronis II for protection from renegade Romulans, the fragmented Tal Shiar, or any other opportunistic species that could endanger their culture. The Federation agreed, and sent the crew of USS Thunder, captained by Toni Turner, to reopen the Embassy, and serve as its staff. This could not have pleased Toni more, as it had always been her desire to return to the Embassy as Captain of her own ship. She had learn to love the planet, and it's people, and felt at home there.

By the time the USS Thunder arrived, the Laudeans had ousted the remaining Romulans, and had taken over the Federation Embassy for their own office use. Prime Minister Ahishma Chandra, now back in office, gave the Federation representatives, the newly renovated Romulan Embassy instead as insurance that the Romulans would not try to reoccupy it.

The USS Thunder-A is an Akria class starship, currently under the command of Fleet Captain Toni Turner. The second vessel to bear the prestigious name, the Thunder-A was launched as a replacement for the original USS Thunder, a Cheyenne class light support cruiser lost in an orbital battle while defending Duronis II during the Klingon Invasion of 2389.

In light of this unprovoked Klingon invasion of a nonmember world, Fleet Captain Toni Turner request for a more blunt response against possible future attacks was respected and a up-rated Akira class was commissioned to replace the recently lost USS-Thunder. The USS Thunder-A requested was equipped with all the 2391 upgrades, one of which was the Quantum Slip-Stream Warp drive (QSSD), which not only cuts down on response time, but makes travel through deep space to points of interest, such as Earth, more convenient.

MISSIONS

Embassy Duronis II Missions (Toni's First Placement)

During her time at the Embassy, Toni had a difficult time adjusting to a new planet, but after a few months she came to think of it as her home, and the Laudean people became very important to her. After leaving to join the USS Challenger, she made up her mind that someday she would return to the Embassy as a Commanding Officer, and spent her time away, learning what she would need to know to reach that goal. It would become a goal that defined her entire career.
