  ______________________________________ BACKGROUND:

Lauren and her family moved from Lacona City, Deneva to a small outpost colony on Vorta V when she was 10. Her father was an engineer for Deneva Mining Corporation while her mom was a geologist. The outpost was not an official colony of the Federation but did rely on basic supplies from the Federation. Two months after arriving on the colony, the Shan family’s life changed forever.

Her parents found vast deposits of dilithium on Vorta V. Within five years, the colony hosted several mining companies from all over the Alpha quadrant. One night the colony was strategically attacked on the ground and from space. Few colonists survived the massacre. The colony then was absorbed into the Romulan Empire for protection.

It was presumed the entire Shan family had perished until Lauren was arrested one night on Orion for breaking into a local business 18 months after the attack. The DNA scans proved she was Lauren Shan and not Ariel Wright as she claimed to be. Further investigation into Lauren showed that the young girl listed as Ariel and Jonas’ daughter was actually Molly Shan Lauren’s infant sister who was now two years old. Lauren and Molly were returned to Deneva where they lived with their Aunt and Uncle.

Starfleet Academy

Degree: Lauren received a medical degree from Starfleet Academy with a special focus on pediattric and neurological studies


Career Summary:

Lauren attended Boston University and completed a program in Pre-Med. She was accepted to Johns Hopkins to further her education in medicine. A week before classes started at Johns Hopkins University, Lauren watched a news report of a devastating natural disaster on a
non-Federation colony. She listened to the report of the Starfleet Captain, who was providing support to the survivors, and it changed her life course. The next morning she packed her bags and headed to San Francisco.

Arriving at Starfleet Academy, Lauren applied for the medical program. Since she already had an undergraduate degree and all the necessary pre-requisites for a degree in medicine she was accepted. Lauren worked hard and often took double and triple shifts at the training hospital learning everything she could. She excelled in the pediatric rotation of the hospital but chose to be a general practitioner citing it would allow her to be placed on a greater variety of starships. That being said she only is not a pediatrician because she did not complete the residency requirement to complete the degree.
