Personal History Calida emerged to sentience over long ago in the sacred and ancient Visalayan breeding grounds on the Medusan homeworld of Xi Hydrae IV. Much of her past remains a mystery along with the history and culture of her species.

Starfleet History Most of her Starfleet career was at Starbase 12 where she oversaw and predicted various astronomical and military events in and around the Romulan Neutral Zone. Once war broke out with the Dominion, Calida joined the newly commissioned hospital ship USS Huang Feihong as a diplomat and reserve helmsman. She pulled the ship out of a few tricky situations during the war, and gained a love for navigation and piloting as a result. Once the war ended, she remained aboard as a reserve flight control officer in her capacity as a diplomat.

When the Odyssey received its commission to explore the Romulan region and beyond, Calida pulled every string afforded by her long career in Starfleet to place herself at its helm.

During the court martial of Axon Vendrest, Calida's services were retained by a Starfleet task group which monitored the brewing conflict in the Gorn sector. Once Canopus Station was launched and confirmed a success, however, Calida set her attentions to the new horizon of Messier 4 where many of her erstwhile colleagues had ventured.
