Personal History Taya was born on Betazed. For her early years, she had a normal childhood. However, when she was age seven, while playing with other children, she fell and hit her head on a rock. She suffered a traumatic injury to the part of the brain that controlled telepathy and empathy. The technology of modern medicine saved her life, but Taya was in a coma for 23 days.

As Taya grew older, she was closely monitored, but well into her teen years, it was clear that her psychic abilities would never develop. Because of this, she was never fully a part of Betazoid culture. It caused her to often be alienated by other children. The more cruel picked on her, calling Taya, Ferengi Girl. This led to many fights. Oddly, it was discovered that Taya was immune to being read by telepaths or empaths. Other than extensive counseling sessions, her sister was always there for her. Though she couldn't fully understand what Taya was experiencing, she was the foundation of the support she needed to heal.

Taya had always loved laying on a blanket at night, looking at the stars and dreaming of visiting all of them. She made up stories and adventures in her mind, knowing that one day, she would see them for herself. This drew her to studying astronomy and science. Because she didn't have telepathy, when Taya was 18, her father encouraged her to apply to Starfleet Academy.

Taya traveled to the Starfleet facility on her home world and went through the application process. She passed, but there was concern that she was still emotionally dealing with the after affects of her injuries. More counseling sessions later, it was determined that Taya could join, but she was required to have regular counseling. All of this bothered her, but it was the price she had to pay to join.

At the academy, Taya expected to be picked on, but that didn't happen. Most races weren't telepathic, so she fit in, the first time that happened for her. Taya's four years there were the happiest time of her life. Taya graduated with a degree in engineering,
Service Record Taya was assigned to the USS Tesla after graduating from Starfleet Academy.
