Personality & Traits

General Overview While Nikola keeps a professional demeanor on duty, she will pull back on that when the situation warrants it. This is especially evident when dealing with the injured or sick. This dips into her personal life as well; staying healthily detached until someone is hurt badly.
Ambitions Serve with Starfleet until she no longer can, then open a small practice on a quiet world. This is what her grandmother did, and she looks up to her greatly.

Personal History Nikola was born in Mannheim, Germany in 2356. Her father was a civic engineer, but her mother and grandmother were both doctors and medicine was a large part of her life. While her mother wasn't in Starfleet, her grandmother was. She even served on an Ambassador class ship before she retired and opened a practice on Earth that included her mother. Her grandmother would often regale Nikola and her cousins with the experiences she had in Starfleet. This did not sit well with her mother and father who didn't especially like the idea of Starfleet as a medical career. Her grandmother's stories inspired Nikola to pursue her goals of being a Starfleet doctor.

At Starfleet Medical, she excelled at general medicine and surgery, but had to work extra hard to master her xenobiology courses. She briefly flirted with switching to a surgery specialization but instead focused on the (more difficult for her) general medicine path.

In Starfleet, she showed little interest outside of medicine, but for Nikola, that was adventure enough. She enjoyed the sense of accomplishment when working on difficult problems that you face when working in space. This fed her ability to lead a medical staff, but she always had difficulty sending her staff into dangerous situations. While she has improved in this regard, it has only been recently, and only to a degree.
