Personal History Renee was born in Texas on December 18th, 2365, in Dallas, Texas. She was raised on a small farm that raised quarter horses, but got a top flight education at Dallas Polytechnic High before applying to Starfleet Academy and being accepted for their induction of 2383. She got the news right before her Senior Prom, right when her childhood friend, Charlotte Averis, was accepted as well. It was there that things got shaky, as she took the opportunity of a new area to start partying and pulling pranks that had only just been in their infancy during her high school days. She also took her affinity to the boys and girls to higher levels, but was exemplary at her engineering studies. Despite her affinity and knowledge of every piece of technology she could get her hands on, Renee was expelled from Starfleet Academy partway through her sophomore year.

Depression hit Renee like a bus as she stood outside the Academy in civilian clothes, duffel bag in her hands. But after a week and a half, she had made her decision that while her path to being an officer had been taken away from her, and even she had to admit it was for a good reason, then went and enlisted in Starfleet. One year of basic training later, she was assigned to the starship Gemini as an assistant to the assistant to the assistant Chief Engineer and was plunked into the most boring of boring jobs. In 2388, she had been getting ready for shore leave to attend Charlotte's wedding when she got the news that she'd died during an attack on the base she had a few days leave, her shuttle getting run over by a starship in a rush.

Five years after she'd first arrived on her first assignment, she had been on a total of thirteen ships and bases, promoted five times for her proficiency, demoted six times for issues she'd had. She was on her last legs on board the USS Calypso, knowing she was about to be kicked out of the Fleet entirely, when the ship obtained a new Chief Engineer, Andrew Vernet, the fiance of Charlotte, that she'd never met before. He, not knowing she had been Charlotte's best friend at the time, brought her into his office and told her straight out that she needed to improve, but that he would help. A year later, she and he were here-and-again lovers after she'd revealed that she'd known Charlotte. It wan't love, they both knew that, but it helped sooth the pain of Charlotte's loss.

A year after that, Renee had been promoted up to Machinist first class by the CO on merit, when Andy was transferred to Titan Station, where the premier Research and Development programs were, and he took her with him. She spent five years on Titan, working as a general troubleshooter and development aide for Commander Vernet on projects that crossed the entire ship spectrum. A Distinguished Service Medal was awarded for what came to be known among the R&D community as 'The Frizz Event'. She gained promotion to Chief Petty Officer right before she was transferred out to the Delta Quadrant, with the potential to enact some of the projects she'd worked on in the process. After being rejected by the USS Nuremburg's Chief Engineer, she was reassigned to the Wellington
