Personal History Lexi was born on a fringe colony near the Klingon border. Life was not easy on these fringe worlds, but Lexi learned to survive. She also learned the love of fixing things from her mother who was the chief engineer of the colony. She would often tag along with her mother and watch her work, asking thousands of questions about how the things her mother was fixing worked. Eventually, as she got older, she began helping.

In high school, she met the young man she thought she would love forever, Nicholas Barrows. They dated all through high school and married right after. Unfortunately, this marriage was doomed. Just before Lexi left to join Starfleet, he died when a building collapsed. He had been trying to get those inside to safety, but had not made it out himself. She fell apart for several weeks, but in the end, she went on to Starfleet. He would have wanted her to pursue her dreams, she believed.

After graduating from the Academy, she was sent to serve on the USS Tomahawk. for 4 years. At the end of that time, she was promoted, for exemplary performance, to Lieutenant Junior Grade and sent to the USS Solace. Just before she transferred, however, she adopted a kitten whom she named Leanna after a friend shed had in the Academy. It was on the Solace that she met her current husband. She had never thought that she would fall for a medical man, but fall she did. He was charming and witty and just plain fun, and she loved every minute of it. After dating for a year, they decided to marry, and the captain was happy to do it. But two months later, word came down that the Solace was to be decommissioned. Lexi was both angry and scared. Starfleet had a habit of splitting people apart, and she wanted none of that! Fortunately for her sanity, their captain, in an act of pure generosity, saw to it that they both got the same assignment, the USS Odin.
Service Record USS Tomahawk -- Ensign, Engineering Officer, 4 years
