My name is Michelle and I write to you from the cold North of Denmark. I'm in my 30ies, happily married for close to a decade and I have a son named Alexander (3 years old).
(Do not tell my husband, but I suggested the name because of Alexander, Son of Worf.)
Gila Sadar is my first - and only, thus far - Player Character in the Fleet, and the one I completed my Cadet Cruise with. She's a socially anxious ex-historian, who left her home planet in search of acknowledgment and belonging. She's hoping to find that in her new life as a member of Starfleet, though she's still struggling to acclimatize to the radically different way all these aliens think.
I've simmed as Gila since June 2023 aboard the USS Artemis-A as one of their Medical Officers.
Just Gila Things:
1) She prefers adressing people with their titles and surnames regardless of her relationship with them, as this is the custom among Mizarians.
2) She's accustomed to talking about the Mizarian culture and society, since her species is as rare as it is, but will clam up if 'she', specifically, is the topic.
3) She's a bonafide workaholic. Good luck getting her out of Sickbay or the Medical Labs.

I grew up in a - comparatively - dysfunctional childhood home, but I lacked for nothing, and my family is extremely close. We often get together once a week for family dinner with my parents, my siblings and my nieces and nephews. I also live across the street from my parents, so I functionally have two kitchens. Nice!
I became a 'nerd' at age 12 by becoming initiated into the local 'weeb'-environment, and as such, most of my nerd-interests were centered on the Asian sphere for most of my formative years. This led my childhood dream to be becoming a professional translator of Japanese video games. I have completed 3/4 of a Bachelor's Degree of Japanese Studies, but questionable politics in my country made it borderline impossible for me to get a job with it, so I switched gears to become a teacher.
Apart from anime and videogames, my wide interest in all things Nerddom include, but are not limited to: Doctor Who, Fantasy books, TTRPGs (D&D, ATLA:Legends, STA, CoC, VtM5e, etc.), boardgames, the Sims and SO MANY MORE THINGS.
I first got interested in Star Trek in the latter part of the 2010's when I dipped my feet into playing Star Trek: Online, and while playing it, I started watching The Original Series on a whim. Now, I have watched everything in release date up until the beginning of Season 4 of DS9 and Season 2 of Voyager.
What I love most about Star Trek is the message of hope, unity and a better tomorrow, as well as the creativity and amazing characters. Star Trek and Classic Doctor Who live in the same area of my heart, and thus, I know I'm a Trekkie for life.
I'm part of the illustrious club of Wiki Ghosts, where membership hinges on the frankly obscene amount of time one spends roaming the SB118 Wiki. This has, naturally, ended with me joining Wiki Operations as well.
Beyond that, I've served as the Artemis' back-up Mission Archivist since July 2023, I'm the overbearing person who takes the Star Trek Book Club way too seriously, and I am the originator and de-facto "manager" of Sadar's Stats Corner, a thread on the Artemis' Discord where I and fellow nerdy crew members go amok over statistics.
