Personal History Altina was born on Earth’s moon in 2361 to a father serving as a diplomatic officer and a botanist mother. She found that she had an aptitude for mathematics by the time she reached her early teens, and was drawn to the math-heavy sciences over other fields of study. Her family tried to encourage her to pursue other interests that her culture found more prestigious, but her teachers saw her passion for scientific study and encouraged her to go into the sciences.

Her parents were not thrilled to hear that she joined Starfleet Academy to become a science officer, but accepted the outcome. Her younger siblings often mocked her decision by calling her their “Vulcan sister,” prompting many duels with her siblings at family gatherings. She opted to seek breadth of knowledge rather than depth, and took classes on a wide range of subjects, from physics to sociology.

After graduating in 2381, she served on ships, starbases, and research colonies, tackling a multitude of problem sets, and eventually managing a variety of research projects. Her colleagues encouraged her to pursue a leadership role because of her wide range of knowledge and experience, and because of the charismatic way she kept her teams motivated.
