|Stationed:||Shadowstar Station (SFR-721)|
Background[edit | edit source]
The character's given name was derived from the given name of a high school friend of the author's, and the surname of another. Her middle name is after the actress Cobie Smulders.
When the character was created in the early 1990s, there was an extant movement for Quebec to secede from Canada. In either aired or published Trek, there is nothing to confirm that such a secession did or did not happen.
