Well, seeing how it’s been 20 days since the last person posted, I thought I’d do Keiko O’Brien, as requested. I don’t want to be the guy who does ALL the Star Trek characters on his own thread, but I thought I’d go ahead and keep this thread alive. I’d like to see more people contributing though!
1)Starting Off, Keiko is human, and she’s smart, outgoing and insightful, so her bumps are reason, insight, and presence. She’s also has a thirst for discovering new plants, so I gave her the SPIRIT OF DISCOVERY talent.
2)Environment: We know that she grew up with her Grandmother on Earth, so Homeworld is her environment. I’ll giver her +1 to control because she’s in control most of the time, and I’ll give her the Value NEVER FORGET WHERE I CAME FROM to represent her pretty good connection to her cultural Japanese heritage.
3)Upbringing: We don’t know much about Keiko’s upbringing other than she grew up with her Grandmother in Japan, who did calligraphy, and that she had vegetarian breakfasts. I guess I will give her the ‘Artistic/Creative’ upbringing and she accepted it. I’ll give her a rank in Command because she’s good at talking to people, and I’m going to give her the STUDIOUS talent because it seems like her, and for her focus, I’m going to give her CULTURAL STUDIES to represent her decent knowledge of anthropology and ancient Japanese Customs.
4)Now, I’m going to have her take the ‘enlisted’ track in Starfleet instead of the officer track, because that’s the closest thing to a civilian, and choose the Sciences track. I’m going to boost her Fitness (She ran around climbing mountains in Bajor for months), Reason, and control. I’m going to have her Major in Sciences, with minors in Command and Medicine. I’m also going to give her a general skillset for a Botanast here in her Focuses, BOTANY (of course), GEOLOGY (knowing where plants grow) and BIOCHEMISTRY (for the minutia of how plants work). She also gets a talent, and I decided on DAUNTLESS for the way she stands up to her husband and Vedek Winn in that one episode where Winn tries to shut down her school. She also gets a value which I decided is YOU HAVE TO STAND UP TO BULLIES, again from that Winn episode.
5)I’m going to make her an experienced officer. So let’s see, we’ve covered her two main values, so I think her next value should be something along the lines of I HAVE TO FEEL USEFUL to represent her being a school teacher and then doing botany away from her husband on Bajor. I’ll also giver her the talent DEDICATED SCIENCE FOCUS (BOTANY) because, well, she’s really defined by being a botonist.
6)Career Event 1-From the TNG episode RASCALS We have a transporter accident, which nets her a focus on QUANTUM MECHANICS as well as some more control and a point in Conn
7)Career Event 2 From the DS9 episode “In the hands of the Prophets” where she stood up to Vedek Winn’s attempt to shut down her school, we have, well none of the choices are perfect for that episode, so I’ll say it counts as a ‘special commendation’ for starting a school and seeing it through troubling times. I’ll give her a point of command (in order to command all the children and stand up to Winn) and I’ll also give her the focus on TEACHING
8)Finishing Touches- I’ll finish up by upping her reason to 10 and her daring to 8. I’ll bump her Engineering to 2 (maybe hanging around with Miles rubs off on her) and her Science to 5 (she’s REALLY GOOD) at Botany. As for her final Value, she runs hot and cold with O’Brien, so I think maybe something that represents their relationship. I like the Value: I LOVE MILES, BUT I HAVE TO RESPECT MYSELF
And there you go: If yo are wondering her final stats are: Control 10, Fitness 9, Presence 10, Daring 8, Insight 9, Reason 10
As for the next person to do, hmmm, I was tempted to do Jett Reno from Discovery ( https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Jett_Reno ) but I don’t think too many people know who she is. Well, if the next person hasn’t watched enough discovery to do a Jett Reno character, then take my second choice of Reg Barkley.
