Dishonorably discharged from the Federation Marine Corps, Meera is now left on her own in the Orion Cartel’s, in particular her own mother’s cartel. With little option or choice, she has to find her way through the politics of the life she attempted to get away from.
Born to a mid-level Syndicate leader, Meera was the eldest child, and was thusly groomed and expected to grow into a position of authority, eventually taking over the family as was its tradition. She was thusly trained, taught, and educated in how to be a manipulator, a seductress, and such, all the things she’d need to follow work in the Syndicate, and manipulate other races to gain additional ‘goods’ of various kinds for the Syndicate. However, at age 19, she finally was fed up with it, and ran away to Earth, asking to join the Marines.
Initially scoffed at, she continued to strive for it, finally gaining permission and began training. She was pushed regularly, as was the norm. In other ways, she was pushed harder, since most of those around her viewed her through the lense of stereotypes of Orion women. Nonetheless, she proved herself and graduated from Marine Basic Training. While she expected there to be little need for combat troops over her tour of service, she still strived to prove herself.
With the beginning of the Dominion War when she was 20, she found herself suddenly thrust into the role she had been training to perform for some time. While she never won many accolades or made herself a major figure of any of the conflicts she took part in, she still proved herself a capable and willing combatant.
After the War ended, she found herself unwilling to just go back to the Syndicate, despite messages and such from her family vowing they’d bring her back and get her thinking straight. She was happy in Starfleet, where the only thing expected of her, was her to do the job she volunteered for. As the years rolled on, she found herself getting into trouble from time to time with various CO’s, most of whom either were displeased with having an Orion in their unit, or sought to get her kicked out for some other offense they could often cook up.
She continued to persevere, but sadly, her last command was fed up with her opinions and drive, and filed a report that has had her transferred to the USS Tornado as a punishment, and to keep her away from causing more trouble. Serving aboard it, she found herself taking on more and more duties meant to be held by the Chief of Security on board, and was soon officially given the position by Captain Ryoko Takato, with a field commission (and some OCS courses required to back it up) to 1st Lieutenant for the position, all this done while the USS Tornado was in the middle of the beginning to boil conflict between the Sovereignty of Kahless and the Klingon Empire. It would be in this position she’d serve helping protect the Tornado. Despite this, however, it was no protection against a dishonorable discharge that had been heavily greased through the process.
