Lieutenant Colonel Elena Wright

Lieutenant Colonel Elena Kristina Wright is the Executive Officer of the USS Unification, before this assignment she served as Executive Officer on the USS Hawk.

History

Elena was born as the second child of Jonathan Wright and Hilke Weiss, during the first seven years of her life she had the perfect childhood. Her father had been assigned to a Starfleet post in Berlin and her mother was just living at home. From an early age it became clear Elena was a fighter, she could often be found fighting off larger classmates and at times even winning. Things only got worse when her father got a command and thus was away for most of the time. She kept getting into fights and getting in touch with the wrong crowds. Results at school suffered as a result and she had truly become the black sheep of the family. When she was twelve she was pushed back to reality when her actions almost got her youngest brother(who was five at the time) killed in an accident. From that moment on she focused all efforts on her education and staying as clear from the wrong people as possible.

Once she turned eighteen the only logical choice within Starfleet was to join the Marine Corps. They were a well trained and well disciplined group, exactly the kind of command structure Elena needed. Of course with the Dominion war still fresh in everyone’s mind the Marine Corps had just the kind of thing she needed. During her training she developed herself into an excellent officer and finished in the top of her class.

After graduation she was assigned to Liberty Station near the Cardassian border. With the station responsible for the protection of the colony and piracy on an absolute high since the chaos within Cardassia more than once she and her Marines would fight to protect those around them. Luckily however she never got seriously wounded. Early on during her deployment to Liberty Station she was approached by Starfleet Intelligence to participate in their operations due to the closeness of the colony to the Cardassian border, while still formally and effectively active as a Marine on the colony these operations would take her into Cardassian territory often on covert operations. Following 8 years of assignment to Liberty Station and after having completed Command school she applied for a position within the fleet under a program intended to get more Marines in command level positions. Her redeployment to the USS Hawk was quickly approved. Mere days after the launch of said ship it would already be faced with its first major incident as a freighter was found that carried a dangerous virus on board. As leader of the away team on the freighter she, like other members got infected by the virus however the medical staff on the Hawk managed to find a cure before the disease reached the lethal stage. She remained Executive Officer on the Hawk for several months more. Early 2388 she was approached by Starfleet Command for another assignment more fitting to her experience obtained in Intelligence and on the Cardassian border. As such she was offered the XO position on the Unification and a promotion to Lieutenant Colonel as her experiences with the Cardassians would most certainly prove useful in the Gamma Quadrant due to the history of said race and quadrant.
