Lieutenant Kathryn Fletcher
Name Kathryn Fletcher
Position Chief Medical Officer
|Physical Description||Rounded delicate features framed by her long blond hair make Doctor Fletcher an unsuspecting and unassuming women. She keeps her hair long and loose at all times in a vain attempt to maintain some form of femininity working in Starfleet as most women seem to forego female aspects in favour of fitting into the old boys club.
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||As a polarization to her appearance Doctor Fletcher is a force to be reckoned with. Once she has set her mind to something noone will stand a chance of winning and fight if she knows she is right or has the moral high ground.
She also demonstrates an unending well of compassion for those in pain or needing advise, be it good or hard.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Compassion in the medical profession can been seen as a strength, and in this case it does not falter unless she is posed with those in need while in a situation that could place her own life in danger. She will often place those in need above her own life and run in head long not weighing the possible risk.
|Ambitions||Most Starfleet Officers come into the profession with the aspiration of command or scientific discovery and she would be lying if that was not the case with her, but the one thing that she wants to be known for is her field of research that runs along side her main profession. Forensic Anthropology has become a dying art with the introduction of the myriad technology and with the use of Betazoids or other telepathic species with Murder Investigations. To her knowledge only five others in Starfleet personel have the knowledge and skill to boast the ability in this field.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Performing arts both as Director and Actor and has been known to start a small production company if she is staying in one location for more then six months. Archery with old Earth style bow and arrow. Running.|
|Personal History||Born to a farming family on the Isle of Wight of the south coast of the united Kingdom Kathryn grew up living the life of a farmer. this is were her affinity for medical practice surfaced as she would often times be the one to patch up her farther or three brothers after one injury or another.
She never took a great deal of interest in the family business despite urgings from her parents and two of her three brothers. The third brother Henry was the only one to have a similar mind set as she and both encourage each other to find their own way in life. To this end when Henry reached the age of eightteen he left home for Starfleet followed only one year later by Kathryn.
She trained to be a medical doctor at the St Georges University England before taking a placement at Starfleet Medical and earning her commission as an Officer. Both of her parents were happy if somewhat disappointed that she left the family ways behind but supported her and her brother Henry 100%.
Her first assignment was as a medical technician on the USS Normandy, a routine patrol vessel of the Risa Sector. Her two year tour ended without incident before she was moved on to her next assignment and then another, and another.
It wasn't until her fifth year in Starfleet that she had her first taste of Combat. Her ship was hit unexpectedly a midship before the shields could be raised. She had been the medical officer on duty when the battle had started and news worked its way down to her that the CMO had been killed in the initial attack including the ships first officer and chief engineer. She assumed command of the sickbay in the absence of a more senior officer.
Ultimately the battle was won but not without a price as seventeen of the one hundred and fifty crew perished. Despit this Starfleet chose to Honor her for the dedication she had displayed.
The next several years were as uneventful as the first few but in this time Kathryn found a field of research that was appealing to her on a professional level and a personal level. Forensic Anthropology. She worked through every bit of information she could find on the subject as well as starting a masters degree in the subject of which it took her three years to earn her doctorate and now with her medical doctorate and Forensic Anthropology Doctorate she has finally been assigned to her new posting. The posting is focused on building the future while she is able to look into the past of any dead civilization that may turn up in the area.
