Lieutenant Commander Ra'chel Johnson was a Starfleet officer in the 24th century. She served aboard the USS Alexandria-A as its Operations officer. (Star Trek: Odyssey)

History[edit | edit source]

Ra'chel was born on Vulcan to a Human mother and Vulcan father in 2352. Her mother, Aarika Johnson, was a Starfleet officer, while her father, Storeck, was a Vulcan diplomat. When she was about three years old, her father died from a mutant strain of Bendii Syndrome that affects younger Vulcans. Barely knowing her father, she does remember sitting under an old tree with him near Lake Yuron. As she grew older, she identified herself more as a Human than a Vulcan. Her mother served on the USS Tigris. She would often escape from her mother and hide in the Jefferies tubes of the Tigris.

Starfleet career[edit | edit source]

Ra'chel entered Starfleet Academy in 2370. She entered the Parrises Squares tournament and scored the winning point for her team. She graduated in 2374. She was immediately assigned to the USS Solstice under the command of Captain Austin Hammett as an alternate to both the tactical and operations positions.

Dominion War[edit | edit source]

Ra'chel had graduated from the academy when the Dominion War broke out and immediately saw action. During the First Battle of Chin'toka, the security chief was killed in action. Ra'chel took over at tactical and with the shields failing, phasers almost depleted and exhausted their complement of photon torpedoes, it was her inventive tactics that saved the Solstice. She was promoted to lieutenant junior grade as the war was coming to an end. In 2378 she was again promoted to lieutenant.

She transferred to the USS Alexandria-A in early 2381 and promoted to lieutenant commander. She usually served as the Gamma shift Operations officer until mid-2381, at the end of the Mirror War, when Commander Alexander Merriell was promoted to first officer, she gained the position as Alpha shift Operations officer. (Star Trek: Odyssey: "Where Mortals Are Forbidden")

Along with the rest of the bridge crew, Ra'chel was sent back to a brutal history period due to Q's interference. Since she is half Vulcan, she was sent to Vulcan in 2154 when the Earth Embassy bombing occurred that orchestrated by V'Las of the Vulcan High Command. (Star Trek: Odyssey: "Dining on Ashes")

Personal life[edit | edit source]

While serving aboard the Solstice, Ra'chel was romantically involved with the ship's navigator, Franklin Alexander. Their relationship ended when Franklin left Starfleet after witnessing the brutal death of his friend at the hands of the Jem'Hadar. Ra'chel was in and out of relationships, but they all were short-lived and ended badly.
