Biography[edit | edit source]

Velasquez had ancestors in uniform as far back as the American Revolutionary War. Her father was an admiral in Starfleet. (Bait and Switch: "From Bajor to the Black, Part II"; The War of the Masters: "A Good Compromise")

Velasquez was an engineering cadet at Starfleet Academy in 2401 and was assigned Kanril Eleya as a roommate in the fall semester. She had a habit of bringing sexual partners back to the dorm room on Friday nights with no apparent preference for gender or species. (Bait and Switch: "From Bajor to the Black, Part II")

In probable reference to her promiscuity, in 2403 Haelivthras th'Shvrashli referred to Kanril Eleya being asked to tutor Cadets Fourth Class Tiana Lanstar and Kojami Sobaru as "something to do when Jazz Velasquez kicks you out on Friday nights." (Bait and Switch & The War of the Masters: "Remembrance of the Fallen")

In 2411 Velasquez held the rank of lieutenant commander and was chief engineer of USS Black Prince. She attempted to seduce Ensign Gilad Ronson but failed. She later reported that Prince's warp core had failed in the middle of an altercation with the Jem'Hadar, blaming it on Yoyodyne Division. (The War of the Masters: "A Good Compromise")

When the Prince arrived in the Moab system in August 2412 for Operation Peacekeeper, she was on the bridge making an adjustment to the multi-vector assault mode controls. She remarked on Tyria Sark's call to her husband Jolin Tabris on Trill, saying that she didn't know how Sark managed the long-distance relationship and that she thought it was "simpler being single."
