Personal History: She was born on Mars in Utopia Prime. Her mother was El Aurian but her father was Klingon. They had a turbulent idea of how to raise their half breed child. Her father was a Klingon who happened to fall in love with a passing El Aurian female who he mated with. He was Gareth, of the house of Roq. Her mother was Rynn Sheppard.

They raised her, but Gareth wanted their daughter to live near Qo’nos. Her mother, Rynn, objected and wanted to raise their daughter near Starfleet. Rynn was a counselor and Gareth was a Klingon engineer. Camryn had a difficulty growing up because of her volatile Klingon side. However, her El Aurian side allowed her better control over her own demons.

When she was old enough to make her own decisions, Camryn wanted to join Starfleet against her father’s wishes. She didn’t want to just pick one, so instead she took both and decided to pursue engineering further while not forgetting her empathic side. Eventually, her father gave in and allowed her to pursue Starfleet while not letting her forget her own proud Klingon heritage. She moved to San Francisco alone where she attended the academy there for four years.

During her stay, she made a lot of friends. They started calling her Ryn instead of Camryn, so the name stuck and it became her nickname. She didn’t mind as it was also her mother’s name. During the academy, her mother perished when she was murdered by a rival Klingon clan. Ryn requested a temporary leave from the academy to join her father to avenge her mother’s death. While in Qo’nos, she met the rest of her family in the house of Roq including her half-brothers and half-sister. They accepted her into the family through a blood vow. Her honored Klingon name was Ryn of the house of Roq, daughter of Gareth and Rynn.

When she graduated from the Starfleet academy at 2357, her first posting was onboard the USS Victory as a systems engineer. She enjoyed her posting for six years until she was chosen by a select few to join the Enterprise D on her first maiden voyage to Farpoint Station. She accepted the honor of becoming the engineer’s assistant and the promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade.

During her stay on the Enterprise, she made a lot of friends among her co-workers including Guinan. She also learned a lot of skills including some cooking techniques from Will Riker. It was a good six years for her onboard the ship until she wanted to move on to the next stage of her life. In 2371, she requested a transfer to the USS Defiant in order to become her engineer. She also had a small room onboard Deep Space Nine. She would visit Bajor pursued many other interests including rock climbing, spelunking and hiking. During that time she gained her own strength by becoming stronger and healthier. She preferred the real thing and not the holodeck. She also enjoyed long walks along the station and holonovel reading.

During her time on DS9, she grew closer to Chief Miles O’Brien. He even fostered her interest in operations especially after showing her the ropes around a Terok Nor station. Even during the Dominion war, Ryn continued to have an interest in learning the ropes of command. She went through some trials and errors. She was fascinated by operations and continued to improve her skills in this area by transferring to a bigger ship. Because of her loneliness and shyness, she requested a transfer back to her more familiar ground. She transferred to the USS Enterprise E where she saw her friends again.

As a Lieutenant Commander, she was part of the bridge crew as an operations officer. There, she spent her better part of ten years learning the ropes of command. She was involved in several away teams with her as the leader. After a few trial and errors, she eventually got a handle in it.

When the USS Nexus was presented to be space worthy in the ship yards, Ryn was among the several people considered for a First Officer role. She and other candidates for a first officer position onboard the Nexus was required to go through some scenarios for Captain Malcolm Thomas’s considerations. She worked hard. Even had her soul mate’s support a hundred percent. When she beat out a few by several points, she was so excited. She said her farewell to some of her friends before starting her first journey into the cosmos as the first officer of the USS Nexus.

After being crewed with a thousand or more souls, their first mission was to go to Bajor to drop off DS9’s new commanding officer after Benjamin Sisko was taken by the prophets. She was excited by the prospect of seeing her friends again. However, the USS Nexus was being diverted to an area near the badlands where an unusual anomaly was happening. It only happens once in every hundred years. They needed to record it. However, when they reached the area, that anomaly turned into a rogue wormhole that hit the USS Nexus. The Nexus could not escape from the event horizon and was eventually sucked in through the hole in space where they ended up in the Gamma Quadrant.
