Background: T'Marahoi was born in a rural area of Vulcan called Marispring. Her parents were Vulcan scientists well known for their research on dark matter and singularities. T'Marahoi also excelled in the Science field and entered the Vulcan Science Academy and graduated from same by the time she was 20. She joined her parents in various research missions and then went to Earth to study intercultural relations (an interesting side interest) as well as nonlinear dynamics and high energy astrophysics. There she met Schandel, a young Vulcan interning with an Earth politician. He was studying earth culture and politics to work for the Vulcan embassy. They made a connection and began a relationship which led to their mating ritual 5 years later.
Schandel continued in politics staying on Earth as first an attaché, then representative and finally an ambassador. They raised three children, one boy and two girls. All three were interested in science but decided on different specialties. The Boy, Snarf, joined an archeological research vessel and had been on a space mission for three years. The oldest girl, T'Krsita became a medical doctor and is currently living on Vulcan. The youngest girl, T'Karta also attended the Vulcan Science Academy and became a pediatrician and shares a medical office with her older sister on Vulcan. Almost seven years ago, Schandel was killed in a shuttle accident. Since the children were on their own and T'Marahoi was no longer a part of the embassy extended family, she decided to join Starfleet and put her science expertise to good use.
Having already a science degree, she attended Starfleet Academy for a little over a year to add the necessary Starfleet protocols and procedures to her knowledge base. She was then commissioned as an Ensign and stationed at Starbase Everest as Assistant Science Officer. After being promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade, T'Marahoi was on loan to the USS Roddenbery. The posting became permanent and in a few months was promoted to Full Lieutenant. In the meantime, her daughter T'Krista was bonded and her daughter T'Krista and her husband, S'Albie, had their first child. Later her second daughter, T'Kara, joined her sister in a medical practice on Vulcan. Snarf disappeared from the research vessel he was on under suspicious circumstances and was not heard from for some time. Then it was discovered that he was taken by the Romulans and imprisoned for supposed crimes against the Romulan Empire. T'Marahoi attended the trial, such as it was, but was unable to do anything to stop the Romulans from imprisoning her son. Not long afterwards, she came to Romulus, under cover, and was able to find her son in the penal caves. Although she had a plan to get him out of these dire circumstances, her son declined her help, saying simply that honor demanded that he finish his sentence.
T'Marahoi returned to the Roddenberry and no further contact was made between the two until almost two years later. Snarf was able to get a message through to her to wish her a happy mother's day, in spite of the fact that is not a Vulcan tradition. Two months later she was able to slip back into the penal caves at Romulus to meet with her son. The two years had taken a huge toll on the once logical and proper young Vulcan. To T'Marahoi's disappointment Snarf informed her that his sentence had been augmented by an additional two years for his part in helping a fellow prisoner. That year held more discouragement for T'Marahoi as she was forced to leave the Roddenberry for six months to return to Vulcan to deal with her father's failing health and her family's political problems. However, not to be held back for long, T'Marahoi did return to the Rodd and was able to step back into her position as Chief of Science.
Not long afterwards, she began sharing that responsibility with her friend Jo Drom, who had also been promoted to Fst Lt. The two worked well together and both were promoted to Lt Commander on the same day. This arrangement lasted only a few months when Star Fleet determined that two chief of science department heads were not necessary for one ship and transferred T'Marahoi to the USS Barclay. The Roddenberry was temporarily at SB 229 and T'Marahoi left the ship to await the arrival of the USS Barclay. However, for reasons that were not explained, the ship was detained elsewhere and she was temporarily assigned to the USS Federation as a science officer. She traveled with the Federation to the space dock at Utopia Planetia and while there was asked to lead a Shuttle mission to the asteroid field on what seemed like a routine repair mission. The temporary posting became permanent when the USS Barclay was reported lost along with most of her crew. She was promoted to the Rank of Commander and given the responsibility of Executive Officer of the USS Federation. After a year and half of service as XO, and many wonderful and exciting missions, T'Marahoi was promoted to the Rank of Captain and given the post of Commanding Officer of the USS Federation.
Command agreed with T'Marahoi, especially serving aboard a ship with such fine examples of Star Fleet Officers. She and her XO, Commander Ilhana Kreznak, worked extremely well together in leading the USS Federation, making what many would say a perfect team. However, barely 8 months later T'Marahoi was asked to become the CO of the USS Hermes.
However, tragedy once again struck T'Marahoi's family. This tme with serious illness of her grandson. She requested and received a leave of absence and returned once more to Vulcan. Several months later, with her grandson on the mend, she returned to active duty and was assigned to the USS Independence as Executive Officer. There she remained for over two years when she was again offered the captain position of a ship, this time the USS Ares.
Personality: In spite of living on Earth for several decades, T'Marahoi prefers to think of herself as an extremely logical Vulcan, goal-orientated and motivated to persist at whatever task she tries. However, because of having lived on Earth for so long, she has developed a high level of acceptance of diversity in others.
Activities: T'Marahoi's leisure time includes meditation, reading, gardening, and playing the violin. She especially appreciates philosophical discussions with her peers. In addition, she has appreciated such activities as hang gliding and mountain climbing.
Health: T'Marahoi received a clean bill of health upon joining Starfleet and maintains a rigorous exercise and diet regime and therefore looks young for her age (although she is still young enough, as Vulcan's go). She sometimes takes part in le-matya hunts on the holodeck to aid in keeping in shape.
