Leona is fair and even tempered. She is extremely intelligent and has a wise man disposition. A common phrase used to describe such individuals is “old sole”. Although she is commonly fair she uses sarcasm and comedy in stressful situations a trait not liked or appropriate to everyone. Rather then fight her way out of a difficult situation she prefers to talk her way out of it. Traits she must have received from her Pragmatic Mother. She has the potential to become an excellent Diplomat and Commander should she choose to become a Career Officer.
Despite her wise disposition she does have a few eccentricities. She can be talkative at times and during presentations she has been known to use too much jargon. At times she can be a bit condescending and patronizing all mired in sarcasm.
Note…. Several inquires were held against Veronica Leona’s Great Grandfather Marlin Leona who illegally altered his genetic makeup to have genetically superior offspring. This fact was not uncovered until after Veronica’s Grandparents were already productive members of society in the federation. They were allowed to continue their work. Captain Frederick P. Leona of the USS Georgia lived with scrutiny of having genetically altered DNA in his genes which contribute to his success in not only during his school years but his career in Starfleet.
Although it has been several generations sense Marlin altered his family DNA. Veronica still benefits and her offspring will continue to benefit due to the nature of the corrections in the family DNA sequencing. All medical data concerning Veronica M. Leona and family is on record including all notes concerning hearing of Marlin T. Leona courtesy of Starfleet Medical and Federation Judicial Board.
Veronica attended grade school, and high school in San Diego, Earth. Where she graduated at age 12 which is rather young even by Federation standards. As soon as she was able Veronica Leona applied for positions at several prestigious universities who would accept her at her young age for advanced placement and accelerated courses. She was first accepted to Kitimer University, where she graduated underclassman. She was then accepted to the prestigious T’Pal University where she double mastered in physics.
Years later she was accepted to the Grainger Observatory where she received sponsors on a number of federation scientific projects. Upon completions of these projects she received her first PhD on Stardate 237901.10. She received her 2nd PhD last year while conducting research on new power sources using quantum states for the federation. Her research will be used for years to come by the Federation as they begin to implement new power sources. Currently Veronica Leona holds two high degrees in quantum physics, and theoretical physics and has a PhD in Quantum Particle Physics and Theoretical Physics.
