Hobbies & Interests Meilin is an eternal student of the Tao and tai-chi-chuan, and spends all of her time either in pursuit of study or in reflective meditation in what she has learned. She voluntarily maintains a section of the arboretum as part of her meditation regimen.

Personal History Born in Hong Kong, Meilin was orphaned at a young age. Taken in by an enclave of Taoist monks in historical district of the old city, she grew up isolated from the outside culture of Earth. When she came of age, Meilin decided to apply her intelligence and spirituality to a scientific pursuit through Starfleet.
Starfleet History As a consummate pacifist, Meilin followed the Scientific Corps and quickly earned a warrant in forensic anthropology in recognition of her commendable scores and innate expertise.

After two years of enlisted service, Meilin was pressed into a promotion with a field commission at the rank of provisional ensign during the previous Gorn conflict. The dwindling crew required her to man the Tactical bridge station for some weeks until they limped back to dock for repairs.

Upon making her field commission official, Meilin was transferred from Science to Security as a forensic specialist with relief tactical duty. She has served in this capacity ever since, though she never misses a chance to pursue a scientific theory when it presents itself.

In 2389, Meilin struck gold through a special assignment to the USS Palatine where she wore many hats. Not only did she rise to Chief of Security, but she was also the Lead Researcher on Tactical Sciences which opened the door for her return to her first love of Science. While serving on the Palatine her tactical and scientific acumen proved vital in rooting out a Romulan conspiracy, field testing a Tactical Combat Automate, and establishing first contact with a new species in the Typhon Expanse.

Such accolades brought her to the attention of the Long Jump Project. When the offer of Chief Science Officer came for Messier 4's first Starfleet Spacedock, Meilin did not hesitate to accept.
