Pre-Service Biography

Ameri Skye Fitzgerald was born on April 5th, 2359, and raised in Dublin, Ireland. By her parents, Paul Jean and Heather Fitzgerald. Together they had four children with Ameri being one of the middle Children. Ameri was always a little shy and stubborn growing up. She always seemed to be getting into bailing her big brothers out of trouble, and raising her little sister, after the death of their mother in 2371, during the Dominion War attack of Earth.

The death of their mother was hard on all four children. Ameri was only 12 years old when her mother died. For a couple of years, she withdrew from her classmates, and self wallowed. Thanks to some intervention from her siblings, and a couple of friends at school she bounced out of it.

Ameri was a good child growing up, never getting into trouble. She was always a helper, a follower, not a natural leader. She preferred to let her work speak for her. She completed her grade school and high school as an average student. She graduated towards the bottom of her class, she lacked the motivation to excel. But she did discover, she loved Stellar Cartography.

2378 - 2381: Ameri attended Starfleet Academy as stellar cartography specialist cadet in the Summer of 2378. She was very excited to be sponsored. Her brothers managed to pull some strings, to give her a shot. All four of the Fitzgerald children joined Starfleet. They wanted to honor their Mom, by joining the service, she gave her life for.

The first year of the academy was a real transition and a struggle for her. She first met Robbie O'Malley, an arrogant man and a womanizer, she thought. He did had a cute friend that she was interested in. That first year, of school, Robbie suggested that the three of stick together. He use to say things like, “Us Irish need to stick together.” She thought it was funny. And she knew he wanted to get down her pants. But she would not give him the time or day. She considered him to be more like a big brother. He reminded her of Timothy.

At the start of her freshman year, she let Robbie know, that she was not interested. He took the news well. And three of them remained friends, deep down she started to like Quinn Ó Flannagáin more than just a friend. Out of respect for Robbie, and her stubbornness, she resisted her feelings and kept their relationship as friends only. Ameri felt bad, but neither of them were taking the next step. But it started to become clear to everyone around them, that they liked each other.

By the middle of their sophomore year, Robbie had enough of the friction between Ameri and Quinn. He spent the next semester trying to get the two of them together. By Summer of 2380, Ameri and Quinn started to go on a few dates and by the fall of 2380, they were dating.

Ameri felt content, and her grades picked up slightly, she found happiness in her life. Dating Quinn made her feel alive. She graduated in 2381 and was 21st in her class. She was on the upper half of the class list. She was very pleased with her final ranking. Her final year at the academy, was very intense. There was a lot of test and simulations, they had to complete. Ameri and Quinn were assigned to the USS Freedom and working the Gamma Shift.

Ameri was excited that Quinn, Robbie and her were all assigned to the USS Searcher in 2381. Ameri’s feelings for Quinn grew, and by winter of 2382 they were engaged to be married. Ameri, Robbie and Quinn remained good friends throughout it all.

Ameri and Quinn were married on December 5th, 2383. They got married a few months after the destruction of the USS Searcher, during the Omega Crisis of 2383. The Borg sadly took the life of their friend Robbie. It was a devastating setback for Quinn and Ameri.

She helped Quinn through the struggle, and the two of them married a couple months after the Borg attacked. (Omega Crisis of 2383)

The newly married couple was technically still assigned to the USS Searcher, however they took a short sabbatical and went on an extended honeymoon. To help heal and recover from the loss of their friend.

February of 2384, Quinn and Ameri were assigned to the USS Chima, till June 2384, when the USS Chima, was destroyed. The couple started to wonder if the Federation was going to win the war. They had barely been on the Chima for three months, when the ship was destroyed. After the Omega Crisis of 2383, the Gilan Pirate Guild openly attacked the Federation in 2384, taking the USS Chima by surprise and destroying her, luckily Ameri and Quinn were able to make it to a life pod and escape.

June of 2384, Ameri and Quinn were assigned to the Okinawa, till her destruction in July of 2384. Quinn started to wonder if they were the harbingers of death, or was death trying to take them. Against all odds, he and Ameri managed to survive the destruction of three vessels. It appeared to the a standard normal situation for the Federation. Losing ships became a way of life.

July of 2884 Quinn and Ameri were assigned to the USS Polycom, till decommissioning in May 2385, when the war ended, and the pirates were defeated. The two were happy that the war was now over, but life was only becoming a challenge for both. They both suffered from PTSD. But they both did their best to fight through it.

2385 - 2391: With the war ending and the Polycom being decommissioned, Amer and Quinn found themselves displaced not sure what to do? For the past couple of years, all they could think about was surviving the war. And now they did. The transition for them was a struggle, at first they wanted to start a family, but they decided to hold off and give them some time to heal.

May of 2385, Ameri and Quinn were assigned to the USS Midway. They stayed on the USS Midway till 2390. It appeared their lives were back on track. Quinn and Ameri were both promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade.

Quinn and Ameri, spent the next year trying to recoup from the Gilan war. On the USS Midway, the loving couple were assigned one quarters to share. They both did their best they could at their job. And Ameri watched Quinn be promoted to Assistant Chief of Security in 2386. Quinn and Ameri hoped that Robbie was proud of her husband.

Ameri’s career stagnated a little, she was still a Stellar Cartographer, Science Officer. She did not have the ambition to go out on away missions, like her husband, or seek rank advancement. She remained a junior officer while she watch Quinn being promoted to Chief of Security and given the rank of Lieutenant. She was proud of him, and she loved the fact he dedicated his promotion to Robbie.

However fate had other plans for the loving couple on November 11, 2385, Ameri gave birth to Enya Keely Ó Flannagáin. They couple were so happy to have Enya.

2385 - 2395: In 2385 Ameri had resigned her duties as Science Officer and gave birth to Enya Keely Ó Flannagáin. She wanted to be a full time mother. Quinn and Ameri transferred from the USS Midway to the USS Nantucket in December of 2390.

During the next ten years, Ameri’s main focus was raising Enya, but Quinn managed to talk Ameri in taking a few shifts and a months and being the USS Nantucket’s Stellar Cartography Specialist. He mainly noticed she needed to get out of their quarters for a bit. And he had no issues assisting her in raising Enya.

2395 Ameri wanted to return to duty, and sadly the Nantucket did not have an opening for a full time Stellar Cartography, Science Officer, so she asked Quinn to look at a transfer. She was hoping a change of scenery would be good for the family.

Ameri applied and was approved for the Stellar Cartography, Science Officer position on the USS Pioneer. She was happy to be given another chance in this field of work. Ameri was also grateful that Quinn had agreed to the transfer.

She knew he was taking a lot of slack from the captain, about turning down promotion to Starship Commander. She loved the fact he placed his family first, over his duty to Starfleet. She would do the same for him. But that does not mean, they do not want to serve. They just want to serve together and be a family.

Ameri joined the sim and like a breath of fresh air she enriched this sim to no end. A valuable addition to the sim, the story, and the community. I am proud that in the past year she has allowed me to call her friend. Thank you for being with the Pioneer, and this community. But most of all thank you for keeping our illustrious XO in check.

I have watched this character grow from an NPC concept into a full PC character. This writer balances the subtlety of being a wife and an officer very well. I also enjoy the way she balances being an officer who has to report to her husband. For this mission I would like to recognize Ameri for not only doing what she normally does. But, in the mission posts she added a sense of fear to the post that makes it enjoyable to read.

Ameri joined us and quickly became a powerhouse within this sim. She took over a character that was originally designed to be an NPC and made the character their. This in and of itself is a hard task. However, they did it with ease. I am glad to have this writer aboard and look forward to seeing what big contributions they well make.
