Personality & Traits

General Overview In the face of adversity the Ferengi philosophy is to turn and run, however, Taxen is often surprised by the strength of her own character when faced with misfortune, in that she has the capacity to face and fight.
Strengths & Weaknesses Taxen’s strengths lie in her love of profit, however, her cunning approach to business can make her untrustworthy but she tries to curtail this trait when dealing with interpersonal relationships Taxen has larger than average female ears which improve her hearing dramatically, thus exponentially increasing her ability to decipher gender and species even if the voice is distorted. The physiology of her four-lobed brain, in line with her Ferengi race, cannot be read by telepathic species, such as the Betazoids.
Ambitions To attain the lofty heights of Commander. Although Taxen does realize this is a unique ambition, she holds firmly in her feminist beliefs of equality and equal opportunity and has confidence that this position will hold her in high regard on her return to Ferenginar.
Hobbies & Interests Having had to disguise herself as another species in her younger days, this fostered an interest in performing. Taxen relishes the “performance aspect” of a Holodeck experience aboard a Starship.

Personal History As a young woman Taxen was part of the crew on the first all-female Ferengi trading expedition to Earth to sell Tholian Silk. Taxen had bartered hard with the xenophobic Tholians to acquire such rare prized cloth, going so far as to undergo surgical enhancement to appear as a Tholian. Taxen thought the hard part of the expedition was over. However, a faction of the Ferengi unable to come to terms with historic changes to the Ferengi Code of Conduct such as female emancipation and their inclusion in the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, saw the expedition as an opportunity for sabotage. Led by the deposed Grand Nagus and with an enhanced warp drive ship, they arrived on Earth ahead of Taxen and her crew. Flooding the market; the value of the now abundant Tholian silk fell disastrously like a Ferengi loss of profit.

This spelt disaster for Taxen and her crew, they were forced to sell their cargo and the entire ship’s components at a much reduced cost. The crew turned on Taxen blaming her for the whole incident and left her with very few supplies. Taxen found herself penniless. Unable to return to Ferenginar and with the Ferengi 106th rule of Aquisition hovering above her; "there is no honour in poverty", she decided her only option was to join Starfleet and work her passage back. Frustratingly, she failed the entrance exam for the Academy. However, a recruiting officer marking her aptitude test noted her high score in logistics and this interested Starfleet. Encouraged, she was offered a non-commissioned post in the area of Logistics and after completing her training joined her first ship as Boatswain’s mate.

At the beginning of Taxen’s Starfleet career she served on smaller exploration and science vessels. These ships bought supplies from local populations and enabled Taxen to improve her skills of negotiation and to learn to understand and abide by the rules of Starfleet commerce, while reigning in her self-serving greediness.
