Dr. Amelia Weaver earned three special mentions in the Academy: the
highest grade ever achieved by a Medical Officer on a Tac Evaluation,
beating 90% of her classmates: a Commodore's Distinction for a daring
rescue while on a training exercise: and the highest number of
discipline demerits earned without actually being thrown out bodily
since James T Kirk. (Admiral Kirk himself presented her with this final
special award at her graduation - a hand-made cat'o'nine tails with the
inscription "Figure out what making a lash for your own back means, kid. You've got a rep now.")
Suffice to say, she doesn't fit in very well in regular Starfleet
circles, which suits her pretty much fine, and most Admirals have given
up trying to give her direct orders. She would have been long gone if
it weren't for her amazing talent for saving lives and the hope she
brings to the average crewman. Because no matter how dangerous, or
remote, or diplomatically difficult the situation, there's just that
chance that five foot five of henna-haired warrior woman will dive out
of the sky, snatch the fallen back into the heavens, and then chew them
out for being dumb enough to get into trouble in the first place.
The reputation leads some of the more glory-hunting members of the
Fleet and Academy to seek service on her vessel. Nine times out of ten
they don't last. She preferred to hand-pick her crew for their
resourcefulness, cunning, and ability to think independently - which
means her best selections often come from the New Zealand Penal Colony.
But a second chance is often all these patients need.
Since the war, Dr. Weaver has been in charge of the refit and repair of
Serenity Station, a small outpost along a troublesome section of the
Cardassian border and close to several trade routes. Her management
style is described by various reports as "dominatrix", "pirate queen",
"Western bar-room madam", "wheeler dealer" and "the finest base
commander in our fleet". With frequent rescues, a station to run and a
crew of misfits to subdue, life was rarely dull, but equally rarely
Dr. Weaver's command was also unique in using freelancers, merchants and
mercenaries on contract terms to carry out plausibly-deniable jobs.
Rumours persist that the Doctor may be affiliated to Section 31 in some
way: but they do not persist long in her presence.
Dr. Weaver is currently single, and does not discuss her private life
extensively. It is known that her long-time partner was killed during
the early days of the Dominion War. She corresponds regularly with Col
Kira Nerys, commander of the Bajoran station formerly known as Deep
Space Nine, and the pair's drinking sessions are the stuff of Starfleet
Current Location: UNKNOWN
The Kaywinnet Lee was last seen divebombing a pair of Borg Cubes during an all-out attack on the station, drawing them off into an unstable transwarp conduit - which the Kaylee then sealed with a quantum charge. None of the ships returned to the battle. However, strange tales have begun to emerge of a "ghost Valkyrie" amongst crews on the front line - a ship that can appear and vanish without warning, rescuing the innocent at astonishing speed and punishing the unjust with weapons of terrifying power, but never registering on any instrument.
Whether or not this is the last tall tale of Dr.Weaver remains to be told. But the tales may last for some time.
