Yuki is a Human on Starbase 118 Ops and the proprietor of Raging Ramen. Born on Earth in Japan, she grew up the daughter of a well known chef, Hiro Sakamoto. While in secondary school, she met Kenji Watanabe, whom she married after he graduated from Starfleet Academy. The couple took to the stars and shared their life together on the various ships and bases where he was posted. The couple had a son, Raphael, so named because of his father's love for the human artist, and ten years after him a daughter, Aiko. Raphael followed his father's footsteps and entered Starfleet as an officer.

In May of 2397, Kenji was killed during an away mission when pirates attacked the shuttle he and two other crewmembers occupied. Two months later, Yuki received word that her son, Raphael, also died, despite the valiant efforts of Doctor Alieth. After much thought, Yuki decided to relocate to Starbase 118 rather than return to Earth. Despite everything, Aiko had grown up among the stars, and Yuki struggled to imagine a life back on her home planet. Starbase 118 offered opportunities and, hopefully, a safer haven than a ship - and once there, she procured a space and opened her new restaurant, Raging Ramen.
