Graduating in the top ten percent of her class at Starfleet Academy, Ensign Watley, just like her friend and roommate, Aliz Bathory, drew the USS Lexington (NCC-1709) as her first assignment. Watley was a life sciences officer specializing in xenobiology.
In 2267, she was transferred to USS Enterprise following the traumatic events of the story, "Blood Cries,". She was promoted to Lieutenant while on the Enterprise and she also encountered Dr. Julian Bashir and Chief Miles O'Brien. She engaged in a mild flirtation with Dr. Bashir in one of the Enterprise's turbolifts. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")
Lieutenant Watley was beamed off the Enterprise, along with most of the rest of that starship's crew, during the M-5 wargames tests in which the entire crew of USS Excalibur was killed and Lexington badly damaged. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer") Voluntarily transferring back to the Lexington, Lieutenant Watley was horrified to find that many of her former shipmates and friends were numbered amongst the injured and slain.
