Nicole James Taggert



Nicci Taggert is a young Starfleet Lieutenant, intellectually gifted, and very technically minded. While on a shuttle to the starbase where she would be assigned her first ship, the shuttle was attacked and the entire crew captured by an Orion raider, and taken to an abandoned research facility, where she was given a DNA graft, as part of a plot to gain intelligence and technology from Starfleet. The DNA graft completely changed the appearance of then-Ensign Taggert, hair, height, eye color, build, chromosomes, everything. After receiving some therapy to get over the incident, she was assigned to the USS Tomcat, an Akira-class vessel, where she was promoted to Lt JG, while serving as Assistant Chief Engineer under Lt Dodd. She is currently awaiting reassignment to a new ship.


Personal History Nicci grew up in a loving household and showed an aptitude early on for building things and figuring out how things work. She built with LEGO and other building toys, built model starships and model cars, and grew into more active sports like Tae Kwon Do and hiking, while also keeping up with academics, graduating in the top 5% of her high school class, and top of her engineering class at the academy. She visited other planets as a kid, which helped solidify her decision to join Starfleet, visiting New Germany, New Russia, and New Nordland. She joined up and made it to graduate top of her class.

The tragedy struck when her shuttle was attacked and the people stolen by a rogue group of Orions who had made their base at the Bellringer station, a genetic research facility long abandoned. Several dozen were experimented on, finding the right appearances so the Orions could sell them as ‘pleasure slaves.’ Faces changed, bodies changed, even genders changed on that station to the horror of those experiencing it. After getting a DNA graft and going through the pain of that change, soon after, Starfleet rescued everyone, but the station was destroyed before they could recover everyone’s old DNA profiles to try to cure them. After several months of therapy and learning to cope with the new body she had, Nicci was declared fit to return to duty, and is now awaiting assignment to a starship, a few months late.

Her body, as far as she has found out, needs to eat more, but also doesn’t really gain weight in the usual places. It’s surprisingly flexible as well. When she gets on a problem in engineering, she can sometimes zone out, but that’s just her brain working through the solution fast enough that she can ‘see’ the solution right in front of her.
