|Personal History||The true T’Lanna Vali is dead, killed during a Borg attack, along with her mother. Until one night when an out of control Borg Sphere crash landed on one of Vulcan’s moons. Sent to investigate, and gain knowledge T’Lanna’s father came face to face with an exact duplicate of his daughter, barely alive he saved her and raised her as his own.
As far as T'Lanna knows she was born aboard the USS Vulcan her father's ship, named after its home world which was exploring the outer regions when her mother went into labour. The birth was an uncomplicated one and her father was proud to have a daughter bearing his Vulcan heritage, her pointed ears and raised eyebrows evident at that tender age.
As far as T’Lanna knows it was the night after her 5th birthday when the ship encountered the Borg, those on landing party duty were lucky enough to escape but the ship and all those on it were assimilated including T'Lanna. Her father was lucky enough to escape protected by the crew but there was little they could do for T'Lanna and her mother. It wasn't until six years later that T'Lanna was liberated when a scout ship she was on was brought down by a powerful solar storm.
It took the next five years for T'Lanna to readjust to being anything near Humanoid again, before she made the decision to enrol at Betazed University studying Psychology. Her perseverance made her tutors proud and her father even more proud although he wasn't so pleased with decision not to purge her emotions.
Upon graduation from Betazed University she applied for and enrolled at Starfleet Academy, sponsored by her father. She spent the next four years on the Psychology track, alongside the expected Academy studies. She graduated one of the top students in her field.
Upon graduation from the Acadeny T'Lanna moved onto her Clinical psychology residency. A further four years later she took her first major position at JAG headquarters on Earth as Victim Advocate and Resident Psychologist. She has since served aboard two Starships, before being assigned to the USS Standing Bear as ship's Psychologist.
During her time aboard the USS Atlantia T’Lanna met Jason Sheridan, the two hit it off big time and in the three years she served onboard they became very close friends. It was during a party aboard ship that the two ended up having one drink too many and woke up in bed together the following morning. They were planning on talking about it when Jason returned from landing party duty but he was lost along with several others when talks went dramatically wrong.
T’Lanna is now expecting her’s and Jason’s baby, she’s looking forward to being a mother.
After an encounter with aliens who kidnapped and experimented on the crew, T’Lanna’s pregnancy was accelerated to seven months. Shortly afterwards she went into early labour, resulting in a caesarian. She decided to call her son Jayce in memory of his late father.
After a problem with Jayce’s health, T’Lanna discovered that when she was born she had a genetic heart defect. The defect was repaired when she was a baby, but the lack of knowledge about it unwittingly put her son at risk.
After the death of her father at the hands of the Andorians, T’Lanna was surprised to be offered the position of Diplomatic Attaché for Vulcan, on top of this she was also offered the position of Foreign Area Office Officer, which she gracefully accepted.
