|Lynsi "Blaze" Mason|
|[ Source ]|
Lynsi Nicole Mason always had Starfleet in her blood. Her father was a Starfleet captain. She grew up on his ship, the USS Saratoga. During her childhood, her family would go on leave with her father. He would often let her sit at the controls of their shuttle. She learned to fly at a young age, and decided early that she wanted to go to the Academy to be a Starfleet pilot.
While at the Academy, Lynsi was awarded many times for her skill. She was a member of Nova Squadron, and was awarded several opportunities for advanced training exercises.
While she was too young to participate in the Dominion War, she was assigned to various air wings, and active in several small conflicts. Her squadron was assigned to the USS Archer, part of Battle Group Omega during the Romulan crisis of 2379. Due to the the Scimitar engaging the Enterprise before she could rendezvous with the rest of the fleet, her squadron did not participate in the battle. Lynsi still gained the attention of Starfleet Command, and was eventually assigned to the Hastings-class USS Shiloh as a squadron leader.
