Rana Kedair is a Takaran Starfleet officer serving in the latter half of the 24th Century. As Takara is not a Federation member, she emigrated to the Federation to gain citizenship in order to be able to join Starfleet.


Rana grew up on Takara, in a sector of the Alpha Quadrant very close to the border with the Delta Quadrant. Life on Takara was harsh by human standards, but Takaran children know little else of the conditions around the galaxy, and see it as the norm. That isn't to say that Takarans are ignorant of other races - many Takarans have gone out away from their homeworld and participated in the affairs of other races, or joined them in cooperation. The most notorious as far as the Federation has been concerned was the man named Jo'Bril, a scientist whose work as part of a team developing metaphasic shielding led him to board the USS Enterprise in the 2360s, where he killed the lead scientist and attempted to steal the prototype they had built for himself. It was Starfleet's first significant interaction with Takarans, and news of the event even reached those on Takara, with the scientific authorities posthumously revoking his scientific status.

Rana clearly remembers hearing about the news, even though she was only five years old at the time. She remembered fearing whether the Federation - or the Ferengi, as she later learned the murdered scientist was himself not a member of the Federation - would travel to Takara to serve retribution to the people who produced such a bad man. When no visit came, she became interested in organisation, and started learning whatever she could about it. She learnt that it was made up of many species across hundreds of worlds, and they worked to better themselves, protecting their territory but going out and exploring and learning about the galaxy around them. She became quite an explorer of her own environment as she was growing up, which ended up getting her into quite a bit of trouble, and put her resilient anatomy to the test. Her parents saw it as character building, and actively encouraged her to explore more about the world around her and what she wanted to be in it.

Ultimately, Rana decided that she wanted to go and join this Federation, and their Starfleet, even though she had never met anyone who came from either. As soon as she was old enough, she boarded a freighter and left home, heading for the nearest Federation outpost, and from there boarded a number of transports on her way to Earth. Rana officially emigrated to the Federation in 2382, and immediately applied for Federation citizenship and admittance to Starfleet Academy. She didn't quite know what she wanted to do in Starfleet yet, but she knew that it would take time for her to be able to meet all of the criteria needed for her Federation citizenship to be approved, which was a requirement for her to attend the Academy, as she had no relationship with any existing Starfleet officers - command-level or otherwise - to call on to give her a letter of recommendation.

Whilst she was waiting for the citizenship process to progress, she took to exploring her new surrounding, and was very surprised at just how vulnerable the other species around her were. Not only did they look to have softer skins, but when she talked to a few of them - she found the medical students near the Academy campus in San Francisco particularly helpful here - she learnt that their anatomies were nowhere near as resilient as her own. It was during the months where her citizenship application was pending that she decided that her calling in life was to protect those weaker than her, and so when her citizenship request was approved and she was accepted into the Academy, she chose security as her specialism.
