Captain Carolyne Hall is a noted Starfleet officer, intelligence officer, diplomat and engineer serving in the latter half of the 24th century. The highlights of her career are her assignments as commanding officer of the USS Republic and Starbase 519.

Childhood

Carolyne's story starts thirty some years ago in San Francisco on Earth. She was born Carolyne Alice Hall on April 30th, 2356 to John Aaron Hall and Alice Johanna Hall. Her birth was a difficult one for both herself and her mother. Carolyne and her mother had confliction blood types, type B- and A+ respectively, thus her mother was unintentionally killing her in the womb. This condition is known as Hemolytic disease of the newborn or HDN. Usually this condition isn’t serious, but Carolyne almost died after four minutes on the outside. Growing up was a difficult affair for Carolyne, being the youngest of three children she was often given the short end of the stick.

She spent most of the early years of her life in a small townhouse in San Francisco. Her mother was a housewife and her father was a journalist. From early in her life, Carolyne felt the influences of her mixed family background. Her father was American and her mother was Italian. From an early age she developed a fondness for cooking with her mother. She developed her taste in movies and music from her father.

Carolyne started school at the age of six in 2362. Carolyne was the model student and the model daughter for most of her schooling until the beginning of her sophomore year at the Academy. That day her entire life changed in an instant.

Academy Years

Cadet Carolyne Hall, 2375
In the fall of 2375, the Breen Confederacy in an act of force attacked Earth during the Dominion War. San Francisco was left in shambles. Her father, Jack was a Federation News Correspondent who was one of the first responders to the attack. He did not survive. For the first time, Carolyne felt the world crashing around her. To make matters worse, not long after her boyfriend, Robert Fletcher (now Commodore Fletcher) left her to deal with his grief over his father’s apparent death at the end of the Dominion War. Carolyne felt alone, her brother and sister were both far from Earth, fighting the war.

That year, like many of her friends, joined various political organizations with the intent of forcing the Federation to punish the Dominion for war crimes. This led Carolyne to a few arrests, and a Court Martial. After the sobering experience, Carolyne straightened up her act by fall of her junior year.

Starfleet Career

In 2378, after a pleasant uneventful two years, Carolyne graduated from the academy. Carolyne was assigned to the U.S.S. Sherman as the ship’s assistant chief engineer. The Sherman’s mission was a sorrowful one for everyone onboard. Their job was to salvage all Star Fleet wreckage orbiting Cardassia. Carolyne had never seen so many hulks, and so many bodies. It was a truly gruesome process.

After spending a year on the cleanup crew, Carolyne was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade. She was reassigned to the U.S.S. Cairo to serve as the ship's chief engineer. At the time of the Dominion war, the Cairo was a simple diplomatic courier ship one step away from being decommissioned, however the war required that every available ship be retrofitted into service.

By the time Carolyne took over as chief engineer, the Cairo had gone full circle, the Cairo was one step from decommissioning. For the next two years, the Cairo was assigned to diplomatic and humanitarian aid to the Cardassians. In the fall of 2381, Carolyne was promoted to Lieutenant.

In the middle of the night, a few days after her promotion, she received a cryptic message from an unknown commander, who said that she would be receiving new orders the next morning and that he could not say anything further. Sure enough, the next morning Carolyne was transferred to an outpost a few sectors away from Cardassia. The station looked from the outside to be an old ore mining station, however the interior was completely different. As she stepped into the station, she realized who she was working for… Starfleet Intelligence.

For the next few years, Carolyne worked for Starfleet Intelligence in various ways, from investigating the war crimes trial of the Dominion to a brief stint in Temporal Investigations. She worked for Star Fleet Intelligence until 2384 when she was promoted to Commander and reassigned to the U.S.S. Odyssey, a Galaxy-class starship as the ship's executive officer. After serving on board the Odyssey for two years, Carolyne was given a command of her own, the U.S.S. Republic.

The U.S.S. Republic was a Galaxy class starship which was one of the survivors of the Dominion War. After an extensive refit in 2386, the Republic was assigned to patrol the Romulan-Klingon border. For the next year the border was quiet as both the Klingons and the Romulans focused on internal matters, however that changed in 2387.

After a plot to assassinate Chancellor Martok by the House of K'tag, political unrest began to break out in the border lands. Several houses including the powerful House of K'tag attempted to break from the Empire causing a small scale civil war in the process. In order to prevent the war from spilling into Federation space, Starfleet sent several ships to the area including the Republic.

Near the end of the war, the Republic was caught in the middle of a fire fight between a fleet of KDF ships and a fleet from the House of K'tag. Determined to prevent the battle and possibly end the war, Captain Hall positioned the Republic between the two fleets and demanded that they sit down to end the conflict. After both sides exchanged fire, they agreed to a meeting on board the Republic. After violent negotiations the two generals came to an agreement in the form of a cease fire. Soon the war ended as the houses rejoined the empire. Soon after the negotiations, the Republic returned to Earth for repairs and resupply.

Family

Due to the fact that many members of Carolyne's family are in Starfleet, they generally do not see each other very often. The last time the entire family was together was in 2375 before the death of Carolyne's father, John Hall. John Hall was killed during the attack on Earth by the Breen in the Dominion War in that same year. Carolyne and her brothers were the first members of the family to serve in Starfleet in two generations.
