Lieutenant JG is one of the Security officers aboard the USS Redemption.


Mia is a young female Bajoran who stands five feet, nine inches tall and has an athletic build. She has thick red hair, shoulder length, which frames her angular face. She has a lean and athletic build. Her eyes are a light blue color that look stare out with a hint of sadness in them. Above her eyes are two thin eyebrows. She has a short and narrow nose which has a series of five horizontal creases across the bridge of her nose, and a mouth that is well shaped, which can look very mean or extremely generous, but always looks sensual and seems to always be turned up into a slight smirk. An ample pair of breasts rests on her chest. She wears an earring on her right ear that is common among the Bajoran people.

She wears a Starfleet duty uniform. The jacket is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a gray yoke and covers most of a Starburst Gold turtleneck shirt. Near the cuffs of the sleeves is a thin Starburst Gold stripe. Attached to the right side of the turtleneck's collar are o*. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the jacket, just under the yoke. The elasticized waist meets a pair of black slacks that fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Character History

My name is Mia Sara Essa and I was born March 13th, 2348 in Jalanda City on the planet of Bajor. The only child of Roana Ren and Solis Essa. My parents were hard working and cared for me greatly. They taught me much of the culture and religion of our people as well as the time before the Cardassian Occupation. When I had learned of the Occupation, I had then decided that I wanted to join the Bajoran Military Academy. I had told my parents of this and they were very disappointed. They had wanted me to become a Prylar of the Prophet. They felt that I could do more good by serving the Prophet instead of becoming a soldier. That was not the life that I wanted, my parents did not feel that it was proper for their daughter to live such a life. So, I left my home and boarded a transport vessel to Earth at the disapproval of my family. I didn't care. I had my sights on my dream.

I joined Starfleet Academy and began my studies. When I joined, I had no idea what I wanted to do while I was in service. I spent many of my first years trying to figure out what my Majors would be. My parents had finally come to accept the fact that I had joined Starfleet during my second year at the Academy. They realized that in my service in Starfleet that I was serving the Prophets in my own way. By the time my third year rolled around, I had to pick my majors and I still had no idea what I wanted to do. I finally decided to major in Conn, Counseling, Operations and Security. While I was learning my majors, I had come to like the Security and Counseling side of things. So, when it was time for me to report for my cadet cruise aboard the USS Thermopylae, NCC-74703, I had decided on Security.

I served aboard the Thermopylae for little over a year as a member of the security team. There, I learned the ropes of serving aboard a Starfleet vessel and practicing the duties that I had trained for in the Academy. After my time aboard the Thermopylae, I was transferred to the USS Vanguard, NCC-82217 where I served as Security Officer. Not long into my service aboard the Vanguard, the Dominion War broke out and we were at war. We helped support various combat operations all over the Alpha Quadrant, but nothing scared me more than the battle we engaged in near Betazed. We were taking heavy fire and our ship was damaged very badly.

As we took fire, the console I was working at exploded and I was thrown across the room. I don't remember what happened after that, but I had awakened a day later in Sickbay. I had sustained shrapnel damage, burns and a broken leg. I tried to return to my duties as soon as I awoke as the battle was still being waged, but the Doctor ordered me to rest.

At the end of the War, I was given the Dominion Conflict Service Medal and assigned to the USS Journey, NCC-74365. My service aboard the Journey was nowhere nearly as eventful as my time aboard the Vanguard, but I had managed to be promoted to Lieutenant JG. I made some great friends there and I became close with our ship's Counselor, Layadorma Cinyd. I served aboard the Journey until 2380 when I was assigned to one of the newest ships in the fleet, the USS Redemption, NCC-80135.
