Personal History Tienn Nerra is the youngest of six children, born in 2358, as such she was present for the last eleven years of the occupation of her homeworld and as such, she got to help with the rebuilding phase of Bajor's recovery as well as the recovery of her siblings and parents against the Cardassian's. her formulate memories of her earliest childhood were of oppression and abuse in various forms, she watched as her parents and siblings were abused in various styles.

She watched as one Cardassian guard tried to sexually assault her eldest sister, an act that deeply scarred everyone present but Tienn Ezas killed her attacker, it was here she learned about terror and brutality rather than a loving childhood, when she was eight, both of her sisters fled from their home and she had heard both had been killed while trying to escape.

When the Cardassian's finally fled when she was five, she and her remaining siblings were trying to hold onto their dignity because she truly despised Cardassian's by this point and then she heard that contrary what she had heard about Ezas and Kerris being dead, both women returned home to bring assistance from the Federation.

This meeting would forever change the young woman's destiny as her elder sisters also became her hero's, bringing help to their hometown and the people in it, Nerra learned to respect the Starfleet uniform and it was at that tender age was when she decided she wanted to become what her sisters turned heroes were.

Her brothers never bothered looking past home so Koll and Leran both settled in their home city of Lonar and her sisters all went off and joined Starfleet, Tienn Ezas and Tienn Kerris both escaped a Cardassian Labour camp as so along with several others but most were picked off one at a time.

Tienn Ezas joined Starfleet Academy after making it to Earth whereas Tienn Kerris simply enlisted in Starfleet and earned a commission later, it would be many years before Nerra would be reunited with her sisters as she joined Starfleet around twenty-three seventy-six after the war with the Dominion ended.

Nerra would spend much time reconnecting with her sisters as both had gone off and formed lives of their own, Kerris had gotten married and now had children of her own with a husband who cared about his wife.

Nerra would join Starfleet academy in twenty-three seventy-six, it was there where she came face to face with more than just something to live for, she came face to face with life itself. Tienn graduated a year early due to the need for new cadets to fill out rosters as replacements for personnel who were killed in the line of duty at the hands of the Borg.

She went first to the USS Pillar of Autumn for two years, then across to the USS Shadow of Intent for two years and then the USS Song of the East for two years, then Starbase 45 for two years and then the USS America for one year and then it was off to the USS Shield of Vega for another one year, then she transferred across to the USS New Hampshire.

Her time aboard the USS New Hampshire was short, she was assigned to be the assistant Chief Engineer long before she was ready for it, after a few months she decided to stick her name in for reassignment as she wanted more time and experience. Her request was granted as she decided to become a Combat Engineer.

Her time on the USS Shadow was short as she found that she hated the assignment here, the men were all interested in her which only annoyed her as she was the only woman asides from one Andorian Shen in the entire unit. She stuck her name in for reassignment but she was demoted from Major to Lieutenant after getting involved in a massive bar brawl on Starbase 400.

While processing the fallout from Admiral Bremer covering for his Klingon buddies, she was offered the chance to become a platoon leader aboard the newly commissioned USS Dreamcrusher.

She accepted and went over with a few others from the Shadow to this new ship of the line, since assignment to the Dreamcrusher, she garnered a Promotion to Marine Captain from Lieutenant and her own command of a pile of marines so now she is going to whip them into shape.

Also, she recently met someone and because of her track record with men, she's taking things slow, in late June she was present for a wedding and in early July, she heard her sister ended up in some very serious trouble after getting into a fistfight where Nerra ended up beating the ever-living daylights out of a pregnant woman.

Nerra was disgusted by her sister's actions but she quickly realized that there was more to it then what met the eye as Iteela was generally a well-behaved officer and not the time to easily fuck up like this so she began looking into the drugs issues that seemed to be plaguing the USS Roanoke.

She was happy that her sibling got acquitted on the charges facing her but she stuck her sibling on notice that she was disappointed in her actions but she was impressed by his sisters singular heroism when she stayed behind to man the transport station helping to save over three hundred lives, many of them wounded but had she not been there. They would most certainly have died.

She had mixed feelings about Tienn almost dying as their last conversation was an argument but she was elated beyond words when she heard that her sibling was going to live.

She served well as the Commanding officer of the Marines on the Dreamcrusher but after the debacle on Lobox VIII, she strongly considering resigning her commission and leaving the Marines as she decided she hated serving with stupid leaders like Lucas Nye.

After the actions of what happened on Lobox VII, and the debacle that happened there, she was one of the few that kept a calm head and helped immensely to salvage the situation, as a consequence of this, she was restored to her rank of Major and was asked to take over as skipper of the headquarters battalion assigned to the Argonne.

Since her assignment to Starbase Vanguard. Major Tienn was promoted to Lt Colonel and asked to take over command of her own battalion, she accepted but she also found ou that her demotion was illegal and it was removed from her record.
