Personal History From a very young age, Ann’s mom, Marcy would tell Ann her family's history. Some of Ann’s favorite stories were of her ancestor's involvement in the famed NX Test Program as a warp test pilot for the original Earth Starfleet. Over and over little Ann would beg to be told another of her Great Great Grand Aunt Jackie Yeager’s exploits. Ann’s mother Marcy would also claim aeronautics was in their family’s blood, for Missus Yeager was also related to and named after Jackie Cochran (no relation) the first woman to break the sound barrier in 18 May 1953.

When Ann was twelve-years-old their family took a vacation to visit one of the world's best known museums dedicated to the history and celebration of aviation and spaceflight; the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. While there, the family got to see Zefram Cochran’s warp-one prototype, The Phoenix. Also at the museum was a life-size mockup of the cockpit of the Phoenix, which she’d gotten to sit in all by herself.

The events of that day coupled with stories from her mother had a tremendous affect on Ann as a young girl. The very next year, on her thirteenth birthday Ann’s parents got hir a working R/C hover model of one of the NX-class; the ill-fated U.S.S. Challenger (NX-03).

She fell in love with the model. She flew it every time she had a chance. She even entered the model into an amature R/C air show where she won second place. The prize, an actual antique paper-bound book on the history of the NX Project, signed by none other than the then-surviving captains themselves.

She was elated by the win. She stayed up all that night and part of the next day reading and finishing the book. It was soon after that, Ann announced she would join Starfleet, and train to become a pilot.

Ann dedicated her studies to her pursuits. After finished junior high in the top 25% of her class, which earned her the right to start an AP program during high school. She poured herself into math and sciences, for electives she took mechanics classes.

She wanted to learn everything she could about building, repairing, and flying flight-capable vehicles. As a sophomore she joined the engineering team where she learned even more about impulse and warp engines. She was instrumental in bringing her team to a second-place victory when their primary R/C operator broke their wrist the night before the competition.

That summer Ann had finally gained enough confidence to actually apply for her first terrestrial pilot’s licence. She practiced with her instructor and coach all summer long. Every chance she could get, she was up in the air. By the end of the summer she felt ready to take her test. Her tester/co-pilot was so impressed with Ann’s skills, he passed her with a perfect score, one of the only ones he had ever given.

Ann’s senior year was a breeze. She’d only needed to take another math and a writing course, the rest of her time was her own. She’d joined a vocational school and decided to take “Manual and Computer Navigation.” Ann graduated that year a Salutatorian.

Ann was so excited to finally be well on her way toward her goal of becoming a starship helmsperson, she went ahead and applied to Starfleet Academy that summer, and started early having just turned eighteen a few days earlier.

While away at Starfleet Academy, Ann lost her parents. With an empty nest at home, her parents finally got a chance to take a long romantic vacation they had been looking forward to. They agreed upon Pacifica, and chartered the next shuttle headed in that direction. As misfortune would have it, they wound up scheduled on the fateful Pan-Galactica flight alpha-omega-777. There were no survivors.

Ann didn't let the accident get her down. She knew her parents loved her, and would want her to complete her dream of being a helm control pilot; so she poured herself into her studies. There she buried her emotions deep in the stacks of PADDs she would be assigned as homework every night.
