Personal History Tarishiana was born in 2360 to Talim and Diviana Barel. Coming from an influential family, image was everything. This was the primary motivation for Tarishiana’s genetic bonding to Lestian Tomick, a son of the third house of Betazed. Despite the best efforts and high hopes of the two families neither Tarishiana nor Lestian ever developed affection for one another.

At the young age of eleven Tarishiana began her trainings to enhance and control her empathic and telepathic abilities. She may have only developed average strength in both areas but she quickly became a master of both. She has an innate ability to achieve anything she puts her mind to.

Avoiding her wedding was one such task. At the age of seventeen she was sent to live with Lestian and his family, the wedding set for the day following her eighteenth birthday. Lestian, three years her senior, was willing to uphold his family obligations despite Tarishiana’s objections. With the weight of both families’ expectations riding on their shoulders, the pair prepared to fulfill their obligations to wed.

The first delay in the wedding plans was brought about my Lestian’s own desires to attend the Starfleet academy in San Francisco, reason being he did not want to be married as a cadet and the wedding was postponed until his graduation. This gave Tarishiana eighteen additional months to find a way out of the bonding or she would have to honor her obligations.
On a whim, Tarishiana applied to the Starfleet Academy. To her own amazement she was accepted. She toiled over the decision to leave, wondering of all the ramifications of running away would have between her and her family. It came as no surprise when the option had been forbidden by both mothers. This forced Tarishiana’s hand.

Two weeks before her wedding to Lestian in 2378, Tarishiana boarded a transport shuttle bound for the Terran system. She arrived in San Francisco and enlisted with Starfleet, training in science. Both families were furious with her actions, however, Lestian understood. A deal was arranged between the pair that if neither had developed nor found an Imzadi by Tarishiana’s thirty-fifth birthday she would leave Starfleet and they would wed.

Much to the dismay of Tarishiana's parents, the engagement with Lestian was called off officially after the announcement of her relationship to Markum Quinn. Barel and Quinn met on her first assignment on board the USS Galileo. Their world wind romance was swift, but resulted in her departure from the ship to return to Betazed to deal with the circumstances of her romantic decisions.

Eight months after returning to Betazed, Tarishiana has returned to the USS Galileo with a new assignment as well as news of her own.
Starfleet History In 2379 at the rank of Crewmen 2nd class Tarishiana was stationed on the USS Kodiak Island. Originally positioned in Operations she spent many years learning her trade between the Operations department and Engineering. It wasn't until one day that she had been assigned to work with one of the Language specialists on board the USS Kodiak Island with the universal translator.

After spending a week under the tutelage of Commander Melike, Tarishiana found her calling in xeno-linguistics. It wasn't long before she traded in her gold uniform for a teal one. After seven years, four with in the science department, Tarishiana was transferred to the Science Department on board the USS Genevieve.

Her time on board the USS Genevieve was...uneasy. During an encounter with a Romulan armada Tarishiana was granted the field commission of Lieutenant. She held that rank and the responsibilities until the resolution of the encounter three years later.

The damage to the USS Genevieve was too much to warrant repair to the Miranda-Class vessel. While the ship was put into storage, Captain Hiker was given command of a new Intrepid Vessel. Requesting a demotion in rank back to Master Warrant Officer and a transfer to another ship Tarishiana met resistance from her former CO but was granted a new position on board the Nova-Class vessel the USS Galileo as the Chief Science Officer.

Due to personal reasons, She took a leave of absence from Star Fleet. When her six month leave of absence expired she officially retired after twelve years of exemplary service.
