Personal History Sarah Chloe Sutherland was born on April 21, 2353, daughter of Gabriel and Saundra Sutherland. Her parents strove for her to achieve greatness, being an only child she learned to be self efficient and become an Independent woman. Sarah achieved success in countless activities but always felt she could do more. One day she decided to take life in her own hands when Sarah attended the rural University of California to gain a Bachelor of Political Science with Honors. While at this university, Sarah became romantically involved with her high school sweetheart Michael Richard. Immediately after the completion of her Bachelor of Political Science with first class honors, Sarah applied for the Starfleet Academy and was fortunate enough to pass on her first attempt.
Starfleet History While attending the academy, Sarah found friendships in a range of different species. Overall, she found studying at the academy an interesting period in her young life. One positive outcome of attending the academy, Sarah made plenty of friends and acquaintances, a task she had often found difficult in her civilian life. She even met a Vulcan, V’Pal who became a trusted friend to both her and Michael. Sarah had no clearly define dislike of any subjects, though the subject areas that she scored highly in were the ones she wanted to avoid. These were combat related, particularly zero-gravity, medical and engineering related. Sarah also enjoyed her studies in astrophysics and both starship and shuttlecraft operations. However diplomatic courses were her top priority in addition to intelligence and strategic operations. She also decided to Minor Psychology to assist in her facial expression reading training for Criminal Understating course.

Due to the Borg and Dominion threat by the time of her graduation, her first assignment was as an Intelligence officer of the USS Ludwig. Sarah was thrilled however her time one the ship was uneventful.

In 2371 she was Chief Intelligence officer of the USS Venture. She met various individuals and multiple friends during her time on the venture, including an El-Aurian that went by the name Tatiana. When the Dominion War broke out in 2374 she continued to serve on the Venture, she remained several years following the war.

In 2379 Evelyn transferred to the USS Kanji as Executive officer under the Command of Captain Benjamin Hokinson. After serving four years as XO, Starfleet finally offered her a Command of her own.

In 2383 Evelyn took Command of the USS Gemini a Galaxy class ship. During her command the ship encountered an Alien Gateway at the heart of the Albani Nebula, pulling her crew across the quadrant to the heart of Breen Space. It was there, on a planet,when they encountered a group of Starfleet offices, captured when the Breen entered the war, and were being used as slave labor. The Gemini liberated the officers and eventually made their way back to Federation Territory.

In 2386 Sarah was appointed a position at Starfleet Intelligence under Admiral Blacklock.
