Personal History Born to Starfleet Officers in 2399. Sorine Kaida (the surname comes before the given name in Bajoran culture) spent the first years of her life traveling among the stars. Her parents were both pilots and enjoyed a bit of risk taking. In 2404 both of them volunteered to test a shuttle design. A malfunction occurred and both were killed when the shuttle struck a star in a nearby system. Kaida was sent to live with human godparents she had never met.

If not for the ridges on her nose, she might easily have passed for a human but despite their best efforts, Kaida always felt different. Despite how her parents had died, she never stopped looking at the stars. Though her godparents thought she might do well with a life on Earth, Kaida was always restless. She would often disappear for hours at a time until one of them found her up a favorite tree where she could see a different view of a constellation. This did not cease until she was old enough to decide for herself what she wanted to do with her life.

Kaida understands human society better than the culture she was born into. She finds it hard to believe in the Prophets, not their existence but in the belief that they are gods and not wormhole aliens. Her parents were both devout and religion is something that Kaida has struggled with her whole life. She wants to believe, to have faith but is marred by doubts brought on by the death of her parents and learning the history of the Bajoran occupation. Still, when not on duty, she wears the same earring she was given as a child in tribute to and as a reminder of them.

Upon reaching adulthood Kaida was accepted to Starfleet Academy. Though her Godparents had tried to keep her from that life she had always felt a pull. She knows that dangers lurk and that she might face the same fate as her parents but believes that space is where she truly belongs.

Though she had an initial interest in Starship design she realized that the people who designed starships rarely got to test them out so she switched her form of study to warp field theory and quantum mechanics. Kaida greatly enjoyed learning but found it difficult sometimes to concentrate with so many other students in the room. She preferred to study alone where she and her mind could come to terms with the lesson.

She made few friends at the Academy but wasn’t disliked by anyone. Her instructors found her to be capable if a bit unorthodox in her thinking. Graduation day was the happiest of her life because it meant that soon she would be traveling home.
