|Personal History||On September 5, 2365, Sally Anne Quade was born in O'Neill Cylinder 3. Of course, it wasn't the original cylinder of that name and position, but was an upgraded, barely 50-year-old cylinder, with all the latest modular configurations. Sally Anne's parents were volunteers farming on the cylinder to provide wheat for breads and cereals for earth. In fact, due to specialization in each cylinder, they were nicknamed the Bread Basket.
She was already five the first time Sally visited the Earth. Colonists were given trips home every five years to visit with family, so she met her grandparents on both sides for the first time, as well as numerous other relatives. Although there were bees and butterflies on Cylinder 3, many other creatures from Earth were not imported, and the impact of so many lifeforms has stayed with Sally Anne forever.
Back home again, and starting school, Sally drew and drew and drew pictures of all the life she'd seen on the planet. She had a great desire to read about them, but wasn't able to in the beginning, so she pestered both her parents and her older brother to read books about these fascinating creatures - birds with wingspans of feet instead of inches, animals who could run like the wind, beetles, flying creatures, even snakes interested her.
As her younger siblings came along, they were forced to listen to Sally read to them about forms of life which they, honestly, found disgusting or even disturbing. In subsequent visits to Earth, Sally Anne was always outside, while her siblings preferred the inside environments.
It was no surprise to anyone when she chose zoology as a line of study, or that she would probably have graduated first in her class had she gone down to Earth for college. She stayed on Cylinder 3 and studied through online interactions and experiments conducted to benefit farmers on all the O'Neill Cylinders.
At the age of 18, just before her junior year, her uncle, Fredrick Aston, a Commander in Starfleet, sponsored her testing for the academy, and she managed to pass the tests, but her scores just missed admission until three students dropped out and left room for her. Her final two years of study were completed at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, where she graduated 25th among the science cadets.
Now, she's served for almost 7 years, and she's looking forward to her new duty station.
