January 21: Uhura

Nyota Uhura was assigned to the Enterprise for her first tour of duty. During an interaction with the space probe known as Nomad, her mind was wiped clean from the strength of the probe’s sensors. Reduced to mental infancy she faced a long slow period of recovery. A nanocomputer and cytronic ciruitry were implanted to speed her progress. Mostly recovered, she has lost a lifetime of experience. She has resumed her position on the Enterprise among friends she does not remember.
Uhura’s nano computer gives her reference to Starfleet regulations, as well as language translation programs for many of the alien races in the Federation. She has been rebuilding her network of contacts as people reach out to support her as they hear about her misfortune.

House Rules
For Uhura I did not give her a secondary profession, instead she has additional contacts (5) and a -1 to Encounter skills.
Based on the backstory she has 5 unchosen contacts; these can be assigned to support characters she encounters them. With Well Travelled and Networked she knows someone in most locations she travels to. Or more precisely someone there knows her.
Phasers have 4 settings: stun, wound, mortal and overload. Stun has a spread (S) mode, which is similar to the aurtofire rules. At short range, 2 targets within 6 meters of each other can be targeted. Up to three different targets within 6 meters of each other can be affected at medium range. Targets only suffer 1/2 damage at medium range, and no effect at long range. Firing a phaser in Spread mode uses and extra charge. The effect of the overload setting from a fully charged phaser is the same as a bundle of dynamite.

January 20: Lady Jane

As a child Lady Jane Ravenwood’s father was stationed in the Raj, while she and her mother remained in England. When her mother died from drinking, Lady Jane was sent to a boarding school. Not long after, word reached England that her father had been killed under mysterious circumstances. Now an orphan the school relegated her to scullery maid. She lived alone in a small room in the attic, her only company the ghost of a girl that had passed away several years earlier.
After several years at the school one of her father’s friends returned from India and took her as a ward. Although he assumed responsibility for Jane out of respect for her father, he was cold and distant, eventually returning to India.
Now an adult, Lady Jane Ravenwood has received her inheritance, a manor in the countryside and considerable investment that allow her the time and funds to pursue her true love, science. She is an accomplished inventor and a dozen or more contraptions in various state of development clutter her workshop.

Something about her steely blue eyes and the set of her jaw ensures no one underestimates her. She’s a highly regimented soldier and is often frustrated by Buck’s laissez faire attitude.

House Rules
The only rule tweak for Wilma was to bump up her Social Status, she is a commander (Level 6) after all.
