|Personal History||Before the devastating attack on the anniversary of First Contact Day, home to a young Alex Kingsley was the Kingsley residence on Mars.
When her mother died in childbirth, Andrew and Laura Kingsley adopted the infant when no other family could be traced. By all accounts it was a happy childhood and Alex thrived. Under the mentorship of one of her teachers, she excelled in sciences and her natural curiosity only grew and she was always engrossed in books or watching lectures.
At the age of 14 she was accepted to Cambridge University and relocated to England along with her adoptive mother. Andrew Kingston, a senior R&D tech at Utopia Planitia shipyards, remained behind to continue working on the Federation’s shipbuilding efforts. It was a decision which would ultimately tear the family apart, as Andrew was killed during the attack on Mars in April 2385.
Relocating permanently to Earth, Laura ensured her daughter completed her studies while she herself began to study as a therapist.
For Alex, the loss of her father and friends was devastating and her school work suffered for a short time. After a few months, she settled and with support regained her focus and her determination to do her father proud intensified.
Graduation from Cambridge with an honours degree in biological sciences, Alex found herself with many options to continue her studies at many prestigious universities but opted to follow Andrew’s footsteps and applied to Starfleet Academy.
At the academy she excelled in her studies but by far her biggest achievement was in learning to work with her peers and to develop strong friendships out with her own family.
Since graduating she has been assigned to the USS Rio, initially as science officer before being promoted to Assistant Chief Science Officer and to Lieutenant JG.
