Lieutenant Kathryn Waltz
"Snow Flake? Bright and cheerful woman, she is a loyal Starfleet Officer that has served us on many fronts. Yea Kathryn is one of its kind that is for sure, but at the same time, she has her wounds to bandage over the years that has happened to her. Though I respect her attitude, she stands straight with a smile on her face and doesn't bow to fear or pain. If you want a good Engineer, go get those at Starfleet Academy. If you want an excellent one, I recommend Kathryn any day" ~ Commander glov Mess
Born on Earth in the northern parts of Europe, Kathryn is born under the care of Josh and Lilian Waltz. Her childhood was wonderful and everything she needed was given to her, she was allowed at her younger teenage years to assist her father in the workshop in repairing old gear and creating new gear that would serve the benefit of the shipyard crew at Mars. Kathryn interest in the gears, tools and engineering parts only grow more and after reading a brochure of Starfleet Academy and the possibilities, she wanted to join. Her motivation only grows after hearing the great stories of the Dominion war where Engineers had to show their gifts in the field of quick thinking and being creative.
After completing the academy in 2382, she was assigned towards the USS Venice, a saber class vessel that was assigned towards Task Force 58. Her primary job was to focus on the Structural and Environment systems of colonies in the Raeya Transit Corridor. Begin of 2383 she was reassigned quickly towards the USS Colombus as Damage Control Specialist in Task Force 38 to assist with the Omega Crisis. Kathryn and her crewmates were pulled into the Battle of Union that cost many lives, including most of the engineering staff onboard the Colombus. It was thanks towards Kathryn sudden step up that the ship was held together.
With the discovery of the Union Gateway, Kathryn was reassigned towards the USS Columbus-A as its Chief Engineering officer that was deployed back into Delta Quadrant. Being redeployed at the Cardassian borders, that was looped under many Task Forces over the years. Kathryn has seen the conflicts of the Order of 12 and the actions of what the Cardassian Union had done.
Starfleet Corps Engineer has handpicked Lieutenant Waltz for Project Valkyries, a specialized team of engineers that are dropped at locations that require specific engineering skills. Let it be emergency repairs on outpost, starbases or ships or restructural repairs/construction on colonies. The Valkyries are quick deployable and the concept was taken from the trails done by the USS Ajax.
