Background:
Corinne was adopted by the Dalton’s when the freighter her and her parents were on crashed on the Ajilon Prime Colony when she was only two. Corrine was the only survivor and all records of her parents were destroyed in the crash. It is assumed they died in the crash but no evidence of their bodies was ever found. Janey and Kip Dalton raised Corinne as their own daughter on their crop farm in one of the northern settlements. They lived a simple life but Corinne longed for a more adventurous life.
When she was 13, the Klingons attacked the colony during the Federation-Klingon War. They captured the two northern settlements including Corrine’s. Her parents were killed trying to defend the settlement, leaving Corrine once again an orphan. After the colony was freed, her neighbours, Marcus and Deborah Harrison, took her in. They were scientists and she learned a great deal from them. She lived with them until she applied for and was accepted into the Starfleet Academy.

Corinne is a friendly person but given her losses, has a hard time getting close to people, fearing she will lose them too. She is passionate about her work and loves trying new things. With her long, jet black hair and bright sapphire coloured eyes, Corinne tends to attract the attention of men easily. Due to her inability to connect with people on a deeper level, Corinne tended to have flings rather than deeper relationships. A near engagement to Levi Keller, and a serious relationship with the former El Aurian CTO, Alexander Romanov, has opened Corinne up to seeking love, but her more or less immortal existence adds a complication to matters that’s she not quite sure what to do with.


A few months after coming aboard the Saracen, Corinne was involved in an accident on the holodeck in which she died and her consciousness was transferred and stored within the ship’s computer. Given the immense amount of data that was created, she has actually been intwined within every system and has complete control over the ship. However, Cori is fiercely loyal to Starfleet and to her ship and crew. With her new status, Captain Leroux gave Cori freedom to help the ship as she can and can take over whatever role is required at the time. She often spends her time in Sickbay as a medic given her instant access to the vast amount of Medical information at her disposal. But her deep interconnectedness to the Saracen’s systems led her to take a more active role in the ship as an avatar.

Just prior to her accident Corinne had been investigating leads about her biological parents and her true identity. Eventually she discovered her real name: Vivian Hope Ballard. She however decided upon discovering her new state as a part of the computer to keep the name she had known her entire life.

She currently hold the official rank of Lieutenant, though she rarely chooses to invoke it in, but she does find it useful in her role as Avatar in gaining respect from some of the crew who are wary of her, though many are still not sure what to make of her. As SARAH, she can act quickly, much faster than any of the crew, but she also feels pain in relation to the ship (eg. if weapons struck the ship). Her state is both an advantage and a weakness.
