Personal History Yadira comes from a family of all Starfleet personnel and because of that she has access to the best schools before the academy. Her early years were spent learning what any normal kid would have. However things took a turn in the wrong direction. She was three when it was learned that she was born with her abilities turned on. A very debilitating circumstance for little Yadira. She now had to have special training to deal with this problem. She was sent to a special school on Betazed that was to help her with this problem.

The school on Betazed started to teach her how to turn off most of the minds around her. Not all were silenced but most of them were. She then learned how to deal with the remaining voices by utilizing Vulcan meditations to control her mind. Somehow she made it work and she began to pick up her schooling normally.

She took her schooling very seriously and graduated from both primary and secondary schooling with honors. She has an engineering aptitude that rivals most other cadets. Yadira can retain images in her head almost like a photographic memory but not exactly. It helped her through her engineering classes and allowed her to finally graduate with top honors.

Once Back on Earth, she was entered into the Academy where she took up all the courses she could in engineering. She did have some problems with her empathy at first but with the help of a counselor and a Vulcan teacher she prevailed and continued on with her studies. After four years of learning and many hours of practice in the engineering labs on working models, she graduated with top honors and found herself given the rank of Lt. Jg. upon graduating the Academy.

Her first assignment was the USS Denver as Lieutenant and the position of ACEO. In the five years there she learned how to think fast and on her feet. Summarily, she was promoted to full Lieutenant and given the position of CEO. With being able to think on her feet and acting fast,in addition to her empathic nature, was able to save the crew and ship from many a fate but as with all things it was not to be on this mission. The Denver ran into problems not only with her engines but ran into a rogue Breen warship that was bent on destroying the Denver. The battle was fast and the final outcome was escape pods being launched. Yadira managed to keep the ship from exploding while the pods were ejecting and remaining till all hands were gone save herself and the command staff. Herding them into an escape pod she launched it seconds before the core breached and destroyed the ship taking the Breen ship with it. For this she was promoted to Lt. Cmdr. and reassigned to the USS Argonaut as her CEO.

The Argonaut was a brand new Sovereign right out of the shipyard. She was so new you could smell the newness of her as you got onboard. The engine room was a piece of work. It was beautiful, sleek and had everything an engineer could dream of. Yadira was in heaven. Many missions were test runs of the space frame and her systems but for the next five years it was a godsend for her. In those years she was promoted to Commander for actions above and beyond the call of duty. Starfleet needed her expertise on another ship so she was transferred to the USS Charger.

The Charger had issues with their warp engines and the intermix ratios. For one reason or another the ratio would not stay at the normal 1:1. It kept going out of balance. Starfleet decided to put her there so she could fix the problem. Yadira worked tirelessly for five days and finally fixed the issue. Captain Harrington was pleased and rewarded her with the Captain's citation for excellence in Engineering. The Charger was sent on a mission into Nausican space to recover a Federation prisoner who had escaped from a penal colony 3 light years from the Chargers last position. Upon entering Nausican space the Charger was attacked by a rogue ship that was carrying the prisoner. In the recovery of the prisoner, Yadira was seriously wounded when he tried to take over engineering. He was captured with Yadira's help and she was awarded the Purple Heart. Transferred to SB 375 to heal and rest before being transferred to the USS Franklin as Commander, Senior CEO.

The USS Franklin, an aging Excelsior class which had transwarp drive was sent on her final mission to retrieve a missing sensor prototype that R&D was working on. It was classified and Yadira's knowledge was needed to keep the ship flying till the mission was over. The Franklin went deep into the Gamma Quadrant and this mission took nearly 5 years to complete. With the device safely on the Franklin, she began her final trip home. Yadira was transferred to SB 321 to wait for the transfer orders to the USS Knightgriffin as her XO/CEO.
