Tala Violet Jones was an Andorian Starfleet officer who served as executive officer and tactical officer on the USS Leviathan. She was typically level-headed, but her violent ancestry sometimes reared its head in tense situations.
Early life Edit
Tala Violet Jones (serial number CV-606-42 AFJ) was an Andorian female born on ca. stardate 62214 in Laikan, Andoria. She never knew her real parents, as they abandoned her shortly after birth. At age 4, she was adopted by two Humans, Michael and Martha Jones. Since they had no children of their own, they raised her as their own daughter.
Starfleet Academy Edit
On stardate 82513.9, Tala graduated summa cum laude with the Starfleet Academy Class of 2408, attending the graduation ceremony on Earth. She scolded fellow cadet Daniel Harvey for speaking over Jason Fredricks' valedictory.
Early Starfleet career Edit
Service on the USS Leviathan Edit
Personality and appearance Edit
Tala had a slightly muscular build, standing at a height of 175 cm with a mass of 64 kg. She had brown eyes, and, like most Andorians, white hair, which she kept in a ponytail. She wore a typical black with red trim Starfleet uniform, including a command division combadge.
Personal life and skills Edit
Tala was very close to her cousin, Robert Jones, who was nine years older than her. They spent much time together in her childhood, and she felt as though he was like an "older brother" to her. He was killed in a Klingon raid sometime in early 2409.

Background and trivia Edit
- Tala originated as a bridge officer of CaptFredricks' Star Trek Online character Jason Fredricks in 2012.
- Her first appearance in Star Trek: Federation Legacy was "Khitomer Crisis", in which she was a junior officer on board the USS Khitomer who came aboard the USS Leviathan to assist its crew following the death of Captain Taggart. When the chapter was rewritten, her first appearance became "Stranded in Space", though chronologically her first appearance is the Class of 2408 graduation ceremony in "The Price of Liberty".
- Tala is one of only four characters to appear in every chapter of Federation Legacy so far (the others being Jason Fredricks, Lucas Wells and Ernie Hauser). This includes the two chapters in Volume 0.
