Age 27

Physical Appearance

Height 5'6" (1.67 m)
Weight 133 lbs

Physical Description A multicultural woman, even she is not aware of her complete ancestry and her mixed features are of little help. Her dark brown hair is usually up in a ponytail of some fashion to keep it out of her eyes. When she was younger and her hair got too long she would often chop it quite short. Ali is in excellent shape due to living an active life. Ali's no bodybuilder but she's got more than a little muscle. However, things have slid a little since being assigned to starship duty precludes playing many of her favorite sports and she hates going to the gym. Because of her smaller build Aliyah is often the one elected for maintenance jobs in tight spaces.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Aliyah is exceptionally bright and she knows it. Having high grades all her life, graduating high school at 16, excelling in college than at the academy…she’s developed a bit of an ego. Stil,l being around other exceptional minds for her adult life has kept her in check, fostering more of a competitive and adventurous attitude rather than arrogant and hostile. Under most circumstances Ali is a cheerful, perky woman, easily able to find the bright side of a situation. That being said, she can get into a bit of a funk when hitting a big wall. When dealing with other people she can be very sarcastic. She has a quick mind and tends to quip, a lot, especially when stressed. Well educated, well read and super geeky, Ali has a wide knowledge base; from tech to culture to the best scifi she’s thought about it, researched it or has an opinion on it.

Despite projecting a somewhat flippant attitude most of the time, Aliyah is no pushover. She will stand up for herself and what she believes in. Ali is also very proud of being Denevan, she may have been born on Earth but she’s not a Terran. Call her Terran and you’re going to get an earful.

Aliyah has always been a little impulsive, especially when excited. She has trouble resisting a new project or mystery and is often at her best when tackling something unknown to her. Ali prefers to act and is quick to do so, sometimes pushing the boundaries set before her. So far, she hasn’t crossed them always making sure she doesn’t push too far. There had been times she was tempted to bypass a safety reg or tell a superior what an idiot they were, but she held off. Still her impulsiveness has served her well; her desire to act has pushed her to look outside of the box for solutions to problems.


She wants to work on a warp 7 engine. If she could get assigned to the Warp Seven project one day even better. Ali also wants to finish her doctorate, well on her way before being assigned to Columbia her plan is to finish before her tour aboard Endeavour is over.

Hobbies & Interests

A bit of a Pool hustler, Ali loves to relax with a game of 8 ball. She learned when she was younger after convincing her parents she was “studying physics.”

An active girl, Ali has played contact sports all her life; Lacrosse was a favorite among the Deneva colonists. Ali played on the Academy Lacrosse team for three years, making it to the intercollegiate championships twice. Being assigned to a starship has kept her from being able to play, much to her disappointment. Still, one of the things she brought to Endeavour was her stick. Ali has recently become very interested in the game Geskana; a similar game from an alien world encountered by Enterprise. While all she has had to go on are reports and a few videos from Captain Archer and Commander Tucker, she would really like to try it out.

Ali loves tech, absolutely loves it. It’s quite common to find various pieces of something she was tinkering with strewn around her quarters. But no matter how much she likes messing with some new gadget or some new tool in her ‘arsenal’ nothing will ever hold her interest, her heart, like a warp engine. Ali will literally fan girl over a new set of engines, alien or human, anything she hasn’t had a chance to get her hands on before. Her favorites are old production run engines, she likes seeing how a culture started their drive development.

One of the reasons Ali was so drawn to Starfleet was their mission to explore. Since Aliyah was little her favorite stories were those that had to do with her heritage. Persian, Arabic, Asian, European; there was just so much varied history in her family line, she couldn’t get enough. The same goes for the various alien cultures Earth has made contact with.
