Raes parents were both humanitarian doctors who traveled to
different worlds giving aide to victims of natural disasters or
refugees of war torn planets. Her parents met on Bajor VIII where her mother, Siena,
went to provide aid for people injured in a terrorist bombing towards
the end of the Cardassian Occupation. Vick had been a doctor on the
planet and also aiding in the efforts to free Bajor of the Cardassians.
two fell in love and after the end of the Cardassian Occupation they
got married and devoted their lives to helping people in need. Vick
hated war, and had only been apart of the war efforts against the
Cardassians because of the strong belief he had in freedom for his
people. Raeyana was conceived and born on Bajor VIII, but soon thereafter the family left on Sienas Shuttle, the Paladin, and traveled from planet to planet healing injuries and organizing relief camps for anyone in need.
Raeyana was 7 years old they went to Korva Prime to aid in the
aftermath of a Cardassian attack. Korva Prime is located in the Korva
system just on the outskirts of federation territory. Raeyanas parents
were in the process of organizing a relief camp for the colonists when a
second attack occurred. Her parents were killed in the attack along
with a number of other colonists. The federation sent a couple of their
ships to protect Korva Prime and was able to keep the Cardassians from
claiming control of the planet. The federation gave aide to the
survivors of the colony, but Rae knew they could do nothing for her.
She was now alone in the universe.
Rae had only her memories along with the diary and travel logs saved in the Paladins
database left of her parents. She had no known relatives to contact,
and she did not yet know how to pilot the shuttle so she had to remain
on the planet with only her survival instincts to depend on. The Paladin became her home; her shelter.
Cardassian attack left many youth without parents and without a place
to go. Those who had the means left the planet, those left behind made
due with what they had. The philosophy quickly became everyone for
themselves. Rae, along with the others in the same situation, learned
early on how to take advantage of every opportunity that came their way
in order to survive. It was difficult, but Rae was able to make the
best of her situation. Her Betazoid heritage gave her an advantage by
allowing her to sense when others were around and also their intentions.
protected her home and when she wasnt out trying to find food, or
defending herself against intruders she was reading her parents logs.
Rae also explored every inch of her shuttle; she knew it inside and
out. In order to keep it safe and running she learned how to replace
broken parts and troubleshoot any problems. It had been slightly
damaged in the Cardassian attack rendering it unable to fly. As she
grew older she hoped to one day get her hands on the parts she needed to
fix the craft and leave the planet.
the age of 15 she was approached by a retired Starfleet Officer who
offered to adopt her and take her to live with him back on earth. Rae
saw him as her ticket off world and went along with it, as long as he
agreed to fix her shuttle and bring it back with them. She originally
planed on leaving him once her shuttle was fixed up and the opportunity
over the years, mutual trust and respect formed between them and a
loving father-daughter relationship was created. At the age of 23, Rae
decided to join Starfleet. Her interest in Science and her unique
experience with survival led her to double major in Science and
Tactical/Security with a minor in engineering.
Shortly after joining the Independence
crew as her first assignment in Starfleet, Rae, along with the rest of
the crew, were all cloned by an AI known as the Keeper. The crew was
placed under a sort of stasis by the Keeper, apparently to keep around
for further cloning in case the original clones died off. Sure enough,
the clones became very ill and began to de-solidify. The clone crew
managed to return to the independence and revived the Real Doctor Darz
who worked with her clone to save the clone crew. Rae was uncomfortable
with the fact that she had been cloned and did not want anything to do
with her clone, even though the clone tried to make peace with her. The
Clone Rae, realizing she would not be welcomed in Raes life, decided
to accompany Clone Darz and other clones who set out to explore the
stars on a ship provided by Starfleet. Rae still refused to admit she
was ever cloned, and wishes to forget the incidence entirely.
Another notable event in Raes life happened sometime later when the Independence
had a run in with the infamous Nexus ribbon. While in the Nexus, Rae
experienced life as it could have been had her parents never been
killed. She was on the family craft along with her parents and younger
sister. Her father proceeded to quiz her on nebulas and space
anomalies. Rae felt as if her parents were warning her about the nexus
and helping her to realize the importance of returning to the Independence
and helping the crew exit the Nexus. Rae felt as though the experience
was kind of a closure moment for her where she was able to see her
parents and interact with them again even after all these years after
their death. Rae heard the other telepaths of the crew calling to her.
She was able to say goodbye to her family before returning to the Independence and helping to bring the remaining crew back to the Independence so they would not be lost in the Nexus.

is very bright and intellectually can handle anything. However, her
social skills are lacking due to her unique childhood. She is strong
willed and has a tough girl attitude. This helps her to stay
competitive in school and will help make her an excellent Starfleet
officer as long as she learns when certain behaviors are appropriate and
when they are not. I highly recommend ships counselor see Rae for a
few months to help with the transition from Academy life to life on a
Starship. Recommend at least 2 sessions a month for the first three
months. I do not believe she will have any problems on duty, but off
duty and in the social environment, she may need some direction.

Counselor Notes from the USS Independence:
my first psychiatric evaluation of Rae, I found it necessary to meet
with Rae once a week to help her transition to life on a Starship. Due
to her rough childhood, Rae was lacking in the social skills required
for successful interaction with crewmembers. I have now worked with Rae
for several months and she has shown incredible improvement in her
interactions with others especially on the professional level. She
still feels uncomfortable in social situations such as parties or other
social events and tends to avoid such events as much as she can. She
has a desire to be a good Starfleet officer and is afraid that her lack
of social skills will lead to her doing something that might affect her
has a natural wall that she tends to hide behind when she feels
uncomfortable or threatened. It is this protective tendency that can
get her into trouble as she may say or do something that might be
offensive to others. She is beginning to learn how to control these
tendencies, especially while on duty. I will continue to work with her
and help her find a healthy and safe way to build her confidence and
improve her social skills on and off duty.

Rae has made huge strides in her ability to interact with others. She
has made healthy relationships with fellow crew members. A notable
strong friendship has been formed with the Cloud twins who seem to have
pulled Rae out of her shell quite nicely. She has learned healthy ways
to deal with her frustrations or fears and she has developed social
skills that enable her to freely interact with the crew on and off
Rae has also seemed to heal from many of her childhood psychological
wounds. She has made peace with her parents death. A crucial point in
her healing occurred during her experience with the Nexus ribbon last
year. She spoke of her experience seeing her parents again and being
able to see and feel how proud they were of her. Rae took the
experience as a form of closure and has been able to move on from the
experience with peace and joy in the memory of her parents.
Due to Rae's ability to adapt and the growth she has shown over the past two years, the necessity of our sessions has decreased gradually and the intervals between sessions has gradually increased. I believe
she is now sufficiently adjusted to life on a starship. Mandated sessions
have been eliminated, however she knows she can always come to my office
when she feels the need to talk.
--Doctor Adrenna Darz, CMO and Ships Counselor
