Ensign Bastin is currently serving in the Security Department aboard Starbase Four (Starbase Bravo).
Celandra, or Cel to her close friends, grew up following her father around through his various posting aboard Federation starships in his capacity as a Diplomatic Officer. The circumstances of her birth were complicated, to say the least, and while she knew her mother, the two didn’t have a great deal of interaction with each other. Even her relationship with her half-siblings was incredibly strained, as she shared almost nothing in common with them outside of a genetic lineage. Her father, Jonathan, did the best he could to raise the child, though many would say that his method of ‘hands-off’ parenting left much to be desired. Despite this, Celandra developed a healthy sense of right and wrong, and didn’t cause many, if any, problems while living aboard starships.
When Celandra was 15, her father left active fleet service and the two settled into a more stable life on Earth, where her father took up a posting in the Starfleet Diplomatic offices. By the time Celandra was 18, she’d already had several Academy classes under her belt, thanks to the exchange programs with the local schools. She had used that time to muddle through the science related courses prior to actually enrolling, so that she could skip them in her curriculum as her grades in those classes had been passing, but only barely. Her path of study focused primarily in the Security and Tactical realm, though her long exposure with the legal aspects of her father’s diplomatic work gave her a solid foundation as a minor field of study. Unlike her father, however, Celandra had no desire to seek higher levels of education in any field of study she showed aptitude in, stating that her father was the only doctor that the family required.
After successfully graduating from the Academy, Ensign Bastin had been set to take to the stars just as her parents had. Instead, the Ensign found herself being handed orders to a starbase, something she never even considered possible given her constant insistence that she be placed in a shipboard assignment when they had been discussing matters with the detailers. Reluctantly, Ensign Bastin is set to report to Starbase Four, to begin her career in a manner not entirely of her own choosing.
