Personal History Savannah was born on Betazed, an only child to parents who always wanted a child. Their happiness was short lived when during a battle three years later they were both killed leaving their daughter an orphan.

Placed into care Savannah was fostered by a Human family, fostering that eventually turned into adoption. Her sister June, was ten years older than her but growing up they were always close.

As she grew up aboard various Starships and Starbases Savannah had a natural interest in becoming a Starfleet Officer. After senior school she enrolled at the university of Betazed studying Counselling and Psychology.

Once she graduated from Starfleet Academy Savannah applied to Starfleet Academy and was delighted to be accepted, she graduated four years later with honours in Psychology and Operations Management. She also received credits in diplomacy and emergency medicine.

It was several years later that she received news that June had been killed whilst serving aboard the USS Churchill. The further blow was that June was pregnant at the time.

It was during their time serving aboard the USS Saratoga that Savannah’s husband Michael was killed on an away mission, not wanting to take personal time she carried on alone doing her best to accept her husband’s death and move on with her life. Now five years after losing the man who meant everything to her Savannah has accepted a posting to the Horizon Colony.
