Eleanor Margaret Carnegie was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Sarah Ann Carnegie (née Jameson), a stay at home wife and socialite, and William Carnegie, President of Holloway Logistics, and long term magnate of the starship manufacture industry. Eleanor, or Ellie, as her brothers endearingly call her, is the youngest of three children.

Although by mid-21st century, descendants of steel magnate Andrew Carnegie were very much alive, the famous family surname had mostly disappeared. It wasn’t until the end of the Third World War that a soldier by the name of George Thompson, decided to change his own surname to that of his great-great grandfather Thomas Morrison Carnegie, Andrew Carnegie’s brother, in an effort to restore the honor of the family name. George Carnegie (born Thompson) is Eleanor’s seventh great-grandfather.

Eleanor lived a life of privilege most of her life. With her eldest brother directly in line to replace William in his position with Holloway Heavy Industries and her youngest brother with dreams of starting a business of his own, Eleanor was expected to follow in her mother’s footsteps, and become the social planner of whatever wealthy businessman she was going to marry. Until the day she came home from school and announced loud and clear that she wanted to be a fighter pilot. Leaving behind a heartbroken mother and an ecstatic father, Eleanor was sent to California to attend the prestigious C.A. Riley Military Academy, where she came to be heavily involved in the school’s flying club, getting her private pilot’s license at age sixteen, and becoming the school’s 1st Battalion’s Operations Officer in her third year, as well as the same Battalion’s Executive Officer in her last year of high school. However, during night flying practice, she made a surprising discovery – just like her father and younger brother, Eleanor was colorblind and could not fly without visual aid.

Determined to fulfill her dream despite what she considered to be a minor set back, Eleanor was promptly accepted into Starfleet Academy, after graduating high school. At the Academy, she joined the Marine Corps and started her journey to become a fighter pilot. It was then that it became clear that her deficient color vision was more than just a hurdle. Safety measures dictated that she couldn’t wear visual aids while flying in combat, meaning that Eleanor would have little chance of piloting a fighter, but would be an asset for reconnaissance. Carnegie was then presented with two options: either she gave up on her fighter pilot dreams and joined Recon, or she could file a Combat Deployment Waiver and work as a fighter pilot under any CO that would be willing to take her, at their own risk, knowing of her disability and of how it could impair her job performance and her safety and the safety of others. Determined on becoming the first colorblind fighter pilot in Starfleet, Eleanor went through Templar fighter training, passing her exams with flying colors. However, on her last year at the Academy, Eleanor filed her waiver and was not picked up by any ship, ending up being placed on the only jobs Starfleet had left – the much dreaded cargo transport.

Her first deployment was not the best year of her life, with Eleanor questioning several times whether she had made the right choice, and silently cursing both her parents for giving her the genetic mutation that had eventually made her dream impossible to achieve. Yet, she filed two more waivers, with no luck both times. Eventually, she went back to San Francisco and took Reconnaissance training. It was only until her second deployment that she realized that that same genetic fault was not a disadvantage but an advantage at times, allowing her to see camouflage patterns when they were not apparent to “normal” people.

It was on her fourth deployment that Eleanor truly fell in love with Recon. She was assigned to the USS Chimera, as the Squadron Leader of the Reconnaissance Squadron, the Sentinels. However, her deployment was cut short due to a mechanical failure that led to a full inquiry into whether it had been Eleanor’s fault or the computer’s. For five months, Carnegie and her ship’s crew were grounded until it was clear that none of them was responsible for the accident.

With a refitted ship, she was able to rejoin her Squadron, that had now been transferred to the USS Aegis, where she remained the following two years.

After the Aegis, Eleanor was assigned to the USS Brian A. Olinski to command the 81st Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron, where she remains to this day.


Eleanor is very tomboyish in nature, mostly (and sometimes recklessly) unafraid of any challenge life throws at her. A massive Pittsburgh Steelers fan, she can usually be found on the ship’s lounge or in the holodeck, on her personal simulation of a small hole-in-the-wall bar back home. Regardless of the place, Eleanor enjoys most of her downtime with a glass of Vodka in her hand (and sometimes a beer), in good company or watching American football, or both.

Medical Records

Eleanor has red-green color blindness (deuteranomaly). A condition that rarely occurs in women but made possible by the combined history of colorblindness in both sides of her family – her father being colorblind and her mother being a carrier of the gene. The youngest of Eleanor’s brothers is also colorblind. Eleanor has a pair of Starfleet issued glasses that help her see normally, as well as a set of ‘vintage’ 20th century glasses that serve the same purpose but were given to her by her brother. She also has a set of contact lenses that she wears on special occasions.

Below is a list of the occurrences in her file:

Date Occurrence Cause of Injury Status Location of Treatment Notes

Nothing out of the ordinary.
