|Personal History||Nokomis was born on Krios Prime. Her birth coincided with the last bloom of the moonflower for which her father named her. She was early and the moonflower bloom late. When she was two years old her family moved to Earth when her father became the Ambassador to Earth from Krios Prime. They settled into the Spokane Washington area so that Nokomis and later her younger brother Galai would have a place to run and play outside of the busy city of San Francisco where her father worked. At the age of three she was given a middle name to honor a friend of her father’s who was killed in a shuttle accident.
As a young child Nokomis was an explorer. She could often be found climbing the trees outside of their property and exploring the woods of the Northwest with her dog Katie. She was never afraid of the wilderness, only the strangers that she occasionally came across. Even being chased by a bear, falling out of a tree and breaking her arm did not deter her.
When she entered school she was befriended by Logan Barrett. They remained friends throughout childhood and through Starfleet Academy. They have kept in touch despite various assignments and personal crises including the disappearance of Logan’s wife in 2390. He remains the only person in the universe allowed to call her ‘Missy’.
Nokomis did not have high ambitions when she joined Starfleet. She assumed that because of her natural curiosity she would pursue a career in science but after graduation found herself on the command track thanks to an instructor who had seen her settle an argument between two first year cadets. Still, though she has earned rank, she has never sought it.
Upon graduation she was posted to the USS Valdemar. While serving she fell in love with the chief engineer who, it turned out, did not share her feelings. The realization of this took her many months to get over. She finally transferred in 2385 after feeling she had wasted months on the relationship that she thought she had been building with him.
After another failed relationship on the USS Rhea where she was posted in 2385, Nokomis began to step away from people she was attracted to. She feared that either they wouldn’t be attracted to her and would therefore end up breaking her heart. She believes she falls in love easily and as a result, to protect herself, keeps a very professional demeanor while working. What she wants more than anything is to be completely accepted as she is.
Despite her misgivings about romantic relationships Nokomis is a very devoted person and would do anything for anyone without asking for anything in return. Her ability to make friends and to keep them has served her well in Starfleet and in life in general.
After two years on the USS Rhea she was promoted to second officer on the USS Carolina in 2387. Nokomis was given the first officer position aboard the USS Bellerophon in 2390 where she served for four years before discovering the First officer position on the USS Orion and applying for a transfer there.
