Centuries ago a ship departed from Earth containing a group of colonists with an unusual philosophy. Call the Carameans after their founder, Hannah Caramea, these men and women were going to set out to establish a colony of clones. Each member contributed a different skill set or specialty that would fulfill an advanced society’s needs (i.e. farming/botany, engineering, administration, medicine/biology, etc.). They traveled for months at low warp speed until they found a remote habitable planet and settled, believing they were many, many decades away from discovery. The colony was established and in the initial years it thrived, then tragedy struck when the founder and leader, Doctor Caramea, died, all her DNA samples destroyed. Still, the colony survived and compensated for the loss.
A great many years later a young woman exited the creche, an Aurora who was destined to follow her destiny as an astronomer, or astrophysicist or some other field of space science. Only…this young woman, Aurora 0807-A, did not want to pursue the path her numerous clone sisters had taken before her. Aurora 0807-A wanted to be an engineer.
This sort of thing had happened before, but colonial administrators had always tried to steer clones clear of any attempt to disrupt the society with their radical thoughts. Counselors tried to talk 0807-A out of this “unwise” course of action, but the young woman was adamant. Aurora overcame obstacles before her and she was finally(!) accepted into school. And then something happened to de-rail her ambitions when she was accused of cheating. It was a set up and she knew it, but even if she was vindicated Aurora knew someone else down the line would find some other way to de-rail her ambitions. Nevertheless she fought to clear her name and succeeded, and was fully prepared to take on the next challenge regardless of how hopeless it seemed.
And then a plan came to mind, an alternative.
The Federation had discovered Caramea when Aurora had been a child and exposure to their representatives had been strictly monitored. Over the years more and more people were allowed to meet the visitors, and among them were Aurora clones, some of them 0807-A’s close older sisters. While they did not fully understand their younger sister’s desires, they were determined to do whatever it took to help her achieve her goals. They approached Federation ambassadors and casually asked about a term known as “asylum”.
Not long after that Aurora 0807-A was bound for The Federation and Starfleet Academy.
Many words come to mind when it comes to describing Aurora 0807-A: stubborn, resilient, determined are just a few. Aurora has faced the odds and overcame them, and even when it seemed utterly hopeless she persevered.
Aurora is not intentionally racist, but she is a product of her environment. Caramean society is insular and xenophobic by nature and citizens are raised in a society that rejects that which is different. For this reason Aurora is still uncomfortable around non-humans, but she is well aware the fault is her own and she has striven to overcome her deep seated prejudices.
Coming from a society of limited names, Aurora has always had problems remembering new ones. For this reason she always walks around with a PADD to help her remember.
Aurora is a talented engineer, specializing in warp core physics. She is also a talented amateur astronomer. Despite her slight frame Aurora loves team sports; when it comes to basketball or European football she is a terror on the court and field, and she is never afraid of participating in a new game.
