Personal History T'sai was born during a time of great change for the Federation. The Cardassian Border Wars had driven Starfleet to it's first major arms race and upgrading of the fleet in half-a century. Her father's job as an R&D became suddenly in demand overnight. With that said, the young T'Sai didn't see much of her father as a young child. Such as the norm on Vulcan, many parents would stay at home while the other would be stationed a galaxy away.

Her older brother, Sarvek, sort of took the place of their father in the family. T'Sai looked up and admired her brother as he completed his Kolinahr and was readily accepted into the Vulcan Science Academy when T'Sai was only eight. She remembers her mother's eyes, almost giving a glint of pride as her son followed her down the prestigious path of Science. However, T'Sai had too much of her father in her.

She was among the top of her class as she made her way through school. Her mother's pull had set her along the path to go through her own Kolinahr with an easy stroll into the Science Academy. Instead, T'Sai could never shake her wonder about how things worked, she'd always tinker with holosimulators to make them more efficient or improve their feature sets. She'd also tinker with household technology to help with chores. T'Sai could also be found looking to the stars.

When her father was reassigned to Vulcan as the Cardassian Wars wound down, the two were able to carry on a normal relationship. Sulak allowed her to visit the shipyard, make inspections of incomplete vessels, and just have a look at the systems. Were it not for her Vulcan upbringing, she would have bounced off the walls.

Both her mother and brother attempted to steer her away from wasting her life on such trivial matters as she neared Kolinahr. T'Sai followed through with the process, completing her Kolinahr after four years at the age of twenty two. With her brash emotions purged, T'Sun almost congratulated herself on having two children join the Vulcan Science Academy. Instead, T'Sai chose to go into Starfleet.

She passed her admittance test and immediately chose the Operations path. T'Sai felt that it would allow her to combine her talent with tinkering with her programming skills. While at the Academy, T'Sai picked up a genuine interest in other cultures, which she rolled into a minor. She also became quite the chess player, earning several tournament victories.

Upon graduation in 2381, T'Sai was assigned to the USS Gates as an operations officer. It was a Nova-class that was assigned to map out the newly opened portions of the Gamma Quadrant. T'Sai became instrumental in calibrating the surveying equipment and sensor algorithms, which led to more detailed scans.

After six years and a promotion to Gamma-shift bridge officer, tragedy struck the Romulan Empire when the Hobus supernova destroyed Romulus and the heart of the Empire. T'Sai was transfer to the USS Iroquois, a Cheyenne-class starship. However, her new assignment was not in her field of operations, but in Starfleet Intelligence. She had shown an aptitude for data gathering and deciphering difficult patterns in scans. She had also been able to predict economic activity in non-warp capable species that the Gates had come across.

With these abilities, she was assigned as an Intelligence officer aboard the Iroquois. The ship served as part of the relief efforts to help set up new colonies and supply lines, with the added mission of determining the true damage to the Romulans. She served in her position for eight years, working her way up to Assistant Chief of Intelligence.

While serving in and around the Romulan Empire, T'Sai picked up an interest in the work of Spock and other Vulcans who sought to explore the similarities in her own people and the Romulans. While distant cousins, Vulcans and Romulans had diverged ages ago. T'Sai developed a side project, learning about what caused the divergence in the Vulcans and the current evolutionary state of the Romulans and Vulcans.
