Yoshizuki Reva Nikiyou can be seen as a "war hero", being at the front lines at various encounters, from the early encounters of the Klingon-Federation War, all the way to being one of the spear-headers in Operation Delta Rising. Sometimes called as "The Second Comming of James T. Kirk" as she is one of the more younger Admirals in Starfleet. She was the former commander of the U.S.S. Evolution E and F, now commands the U.S.S. Starchaser II since Rahhmi's dissapearence.
Born in a family stricken with poverty from Longsheng County, China on Earth, Yoshizuki originally worked as a labor worker most of her youth, working on various rice farms for wealthy farmers and merchants. She was once a frail young girl with a often bleak outlook in life, due to earning very little money from the long hours of work, and because of that, was very malnourished and developed a very strict attitude that would define her in her later life.
Nikiyou's parents had forbidden her to join Starfleet once she got older, as they kept reminding her it would be too dangerous, knowing that they had lost an older son, Hyuwrang , in a Orion Syndicate attack on a passenger ship. Zuki's parents, Beifong and Jia, tried their best to discourage their now only child from "doing the same mistake." Zuki thought that the only mistake was "Keeping me grounded, sharing your misfortunes, and thinking that history would repeat twice."
By the time she turned 18, Zuki disobeying her mother and father, she ran away from home to join Starfleet , leaving the life she left behind as a labor worker. All that mattered to her was "seeing the unseen", as she would like to put it. Whenever her fellow crewmates and Academy alumni would ask her about her past, she'd get peeved at them, and quickly change the subject.
During her time at San Francisco, Nikiyou mainly kept to herself, burdened with shyness, so she was not willing to interact with others. Whenever someone would get close to her to talk, she'd get flustered and run away with her stacks of study materials in arms. Because of this, she was labled as a lonely bookworm, with names such as "zucchini", coined by the more popular cadets. She had hit her lowest point when she became the topic of a raunchy rumor, where apparently she had an affair with a entire local rugby team. She would become the butt of every joke until her graduation.
Zuki was also envious of others such as Rahhmi for being seen as at the top of the class in the academy . She would watch them from afar whenever she can, wanting to be like them: being the brave and the bold, the ever aspiring officers they were working to be. This always encouraged her to work harder not only as to become a compitent Starfleet officer, but to become someone that others can aspire to as well. Sammy also noticed this as well, but he knew it would take time until she reached that point in her career.
Towards the end of her Cadet career at the Acadamy, Yoshizuki started to experience severe cases of depression, began to have suicidal thoughts on a daily basis, eating her alive from the inside, caused from the daily torment and humiliation she experienced. Eventually she was forced into psychological rehabilitation and medication by Starfleet. After being knocked around and spat on by the other cadets one afternoon, someone came to her rescue, yelling something about making them "chew on stuffs". Zuki didn't see who it was, and it still remains a mystery to this day.
Due to the poor performance in all her battle simulation testing (she would get nervous easily and often stutters whenever she'd give out a command), after graduation, she was assigned in ground weapon inventory as a lowly redshirt doing weapon inventory on board the U.S.S. Libra . She never saw it as a hinderance, only an obstacle on the path to become the greatest Starfleet officer.
A New Brand of Zuki
Some time after Zuki was assigned to the Libra, the ship was sent to the Vega Sector, to assist in the Borg assault. While most of the crew were killed or severely injured during the initial attack, Zuki, afraid of getting killed herself, abandoned her post and ran behind the nearest crate, hiding and crying. At that moment , she realized that she went back to her old ways of running away and keeping to herself. She snapped, filled with a rage that burned from her soul.
She sternly walked to the bridge, while her fellow crewmates looked on with confusion. She realised that the captain and first officer were dead when she got to the bridge, so she volunteered herself for commanding the ship, with a bravery that wasn't displayed before. With that action, the Libra and the crew were successful with repelling the Borg offence.
After the incident, Admiral Quinn commended Nikiyou who displayed outstanding bravery and valor from a person least expected to pull off such a feat, especially from some
one thought of as a "shy, nervous wreck". In turn, she was promoted to commanding the Libra; but she was told to handpick the new bridge crew for the ship, as most of the regulars on board were killed or too injured to perform their regular duties.
Instead of picking seasoned, experienced officers, Zuki went ahead and chose newbies fresh from the academy. An overconfident tactical officer named Thrysis, quiet but intelligent engineering officer named Sammy , and a snobby rich woman of a science officer named Obemi. Even though never got along initially, the 4 of them eventually saw each other as brothers-in-arms, as they depended on one another as the danger increased for the years to come.
What Others Call A "Fastrack"After gaining commmand of the Libra, Zuki and the new crew thwarted the Klingon Empire by stopping Ambassador B'vat and his Doomsday device from destroying the Federation, As a result, Most from the Empire see Nikiyou and her Crew as a threat, and a trophy worhty of any Klingon's glory. Others, like Ambassador Worf, sees her as the "Second Coming of Picard."
Shortly after she turned 23, she gained command of the newly-commissioned USS Evolution-E, a Sovereign-class ship, and gaining the rank of "Captain". Newly-promoted Captain Nikiyou stopped the Romulan Star Empire from implementing Borg technology into their arsenal; and as well helping the Remans gain their freedom from the oppressing Romulan forces, led by Emperor Sela working together with the Iconians.At the age of 26, Zuki was then awarded the rank of Vice Admiral for leading
the liberating assault on DS9 from the Dominion fleet led by Loriss and Kar'ukan, then leading peace talks between the Dominion and the Alpha Quadrant. With the sucessful peace negotiations behind her, she was met with unexpected but welcomed additions to her crew, with defected Dominion officer named Vamtana'Tar , A Bajoran medical officer named Meryll , and a former DS9 lead engineer named T'Panne.
Court MartialWhile on patrol in the Gamma Quadrant, Zuki and her crew were ambushed by the Borg. Outmatched and outgunned, the Evolution-E managed to hold them off for hours, but it was too much for the ship to handle, so Nikiyou and the crew were forced to abandon ship before reinforcements could arrive; The ship's captain and crew were rescued by Battle Group Omega hours later. After the incident, her rival, Captain Shion, wanting to defame her for his own personal gain, took advantage of the situation and mislead the Starfleet Council, telling them her ship was destroyed on purpose, in turn, court martialing Zuki and the Crew.
After clearing her name, Nikiyou and the crew was appointed the top-of-the-line Odyssey Operations Cruiser, named the Evolution 2, honoring the fallen ship.
Forced into chasing stars
After successful campaigns with the Breen Invasion at Defera and stopping the Undine in Fluidic Space, Nikiyou received a call to return the Earth Spacedock with new orders from Admiral Quinn. Zuki burst into protest after she received orders to head for Starbase:Tribble and take command of the U.S.S. Starchaser II. She reminded Quinn that the ship was Rahhmi Starchaser's pride and joy, plus didn't want to take over what Dantastic and the Starchaser Crew worked hard for.
But after hearing that Rahhmi and Dantastic has resigned after the successful launch of Starbase:Tribble, Quinn had given Nikiyou an ultimatum: Take the command, or get deranked to Commander and she and the Crew spend the rest of their Starfleet career behind a desk at Starfleet Academy , something that left a bad taste in Vamtana'Tar's and Thrysis' mouths.
While on the trip towards the stabase with her bridge crew from the Evolution II, she often told herself "All I can do a bear a grin, right?". What didn't help Zuki's situation was when she arrived to the Starchaser, and she noticed she wasn't welcomed when she saw the the "Welcome Back Rahhmi & Dantastic & New Crew Members" sign and the perplexed looks on their faces. "Well, at least my crew members are welcomed" she thought. Alll that aside, she took command of the ship, as a Klingon Task Force was heading for Starbase:Tribble...
Relations with the Starchaser Crew
Initially, no one onboard the Starchaser accepted Nikiyou as the replacement commanding officer. Unlike her fellow Evolution crew member Obemi, who became the center of attention in the Science labs, nobody wanted to deal with Zuki. Maria first noticed this, and offers Zuki some advice about her new crew and their loyalties as the two try to formulate a line of communication, and maybe some friendships along the way.
When Rahhmi and Dantastic returns from parts unknown, things changed slightly towards the weirder, as everyone were glad to believe that she was back to take back her commanding chair from the purple haired lady, but it was not the case. Nikiyou and Miss Starchaser weren't allowed to give any details regarding their return, which perplexed the entire crew, but dared not to question it.
It was during this time that Zuki began her Advanced Omega Force training, feeling that she should be up to par with Dantastic, and "That Skittlebrained Red-Head", as she would like to put it. Probably hinting that something big might come in the future....
