Personal History The Early Years

Galatea was born on Betazed to Endora and Jonathan Polaris. She is a member of the 3rd house considered the House of health and thus most of those from that house are in the medical or counseling field.

Galatea was born to a mother who was the head of the medical research department at Betazed’s Arc hospital. Her father was a professor at Starfleet Academy Betazoid division in the medical department. She did not have it easy. Her mother held her to high expectations and made Galatea feel as if she was never good enough. Her father was always distant preferring to focus on his affairs more than his family. Galatea often felt left out and as if she wasn’t good enough. She escaped her loneliness by focusing on her school work.

As a student she was smart, loved to learn, and was very inquisitive. Her teachers raved about her.

While in high school Galatea was in the drama club, the choir, the gymnastics team, and part of the newspaper team. She was also the captain of the horse riding team. Despite all this she was not the most popular kid and often ate lunch alone feeling bullied and made fun of by the other student for her half El-Aurian side.

During her high school years she was assessed and based on her IQ and her skills she was selected to be in a group of 10 students sent to Earth to be a part of the Starfleet Academy Prep Courses.

Galatea was excited about that and looked forward to joining the Academy prep school as it would take her away from her environment and would allow her to start over on her own.

The Prep Courses Year

Galatea took to her new life. Being away from her regular environment seemed to make her blossom. Even though she had a lot to study she found the time to really enjoy life.

She joined the local Vulcan philosophy and wellness club. She grew to know herself better and slowly started coming out of her shell.

During the prep courses Galatea focused on Counseling and Medical. She discovered that she liked counseling and medical and it was hard for her to choose a discipline so she decided to focus on both. She wanted to help people to make them well both emotionally and physically.

Again while at the Academy Prep Galatea joined the Academy Newspaper and the poetry club. She also started several study groups and even a stress reduction group to help students cope with the stress of exams and prep courses.

By the end of the year Galatea was awarded for her school spirit, her dedication to her fellow students and for her writing. Galatea felt ready to tackle the Academy and was looking forward to it.

The Academy Years

In the Academy Galatea was no different. She excelled in her studies and found herself joining every team she could. She ran a meditation group as well as joined the shuttle flying team.

Galatea was an avid swimmer in school and won several awards. She also joined the Academy Gazette and quickly became editor and chief. She found her voice in the Academy and joined the singing group.

She graduated at the top of her class in both the medical and counseling field and was determined to find a ship where she could do both.

In 2383 when she joined the Dragon she started her career as an Ensign. She worked under a mean woman who made it her life's work to make Galatea miserable. Galatea worked hard but nothing she did ever seemed right and she felt herself fading. In 2385 she applied for was transferred to the USS Pathway into a medical and counseling postion.

On the Pathway she excelled in her work and was loved by her crewmates. Her boss the CMO found her to be bright and helpful if not a little withdrawn I the friend department. She mentored her for two years and then was killed during an away mission.

Galatea was devastated and even more so to find that her old boss from the Dragon was now in her mentor's position. Once again Galatea withdrew and bided her time until the Assistant CMO position opened on the USS Blueline. She applied was accepted and off she went.

This posting was without incident. She excelled in her work but in the socialization aspect she kept to herself.

In 2391 she applied for a transfer to the USS Loma which would allow her to upgrade her skills. An old professor of hers from the Academy was the chief research officer on the ship and she was able to upgrade her skills and reconnect with someone who had inspired her in the field of medicine.

Kolteph the Klingon CRO saw that while Galatea was extremely intelligent she kept to her self. He had his suspicions as to why that was but never voiced them.

In 2393 she was recommended for a promotion and was transferred to the USS Wolff.
