Name Lylja Tigerlilly
Position Executive Officer
Second Position Chief Operations Officer
Rank Lieutenant Commander
|Lylja is tall for a caitian (1.8m/5'11") and her fur is a silky sliver-blue like that of a Korat with green-gold eyes. Preferring looser clothes, she wears uniform skirts. Like most Caitians, she avoids footwear.

S'okka Joss, younger.
|Yes, but not developed
Personality & Traits
|Lylja is alert, active and playful. Indeed, she has trouble keeping still or quiet. Though her years in the Academy have imposed some discipline upon her she still tends to act first and consider the options later. She is an eternal optimist and a bit of a prankster.
|Strengths & Weaknesses
|Report from Capt Njessa Ajzure (acting CO of the Talleyrand during the evacuation of Romulus):
"Senior Cadet Tigerlillly is an adaptive and inventive mind, it is easy to see why she went into Operations. Her ability to come up with solutions to problems quickly is excellent, if unrefined. Tigerlilly often does not look beyond her first idea which sometimes causes her solutions to dead-end leading to lost of time but more often leads to unexpected complication with other systems which have to be sorted out later. As she gains more experience, hopefully she will be able to overcome her tendency to 'leap before she looks' and work through her solutions before starting to implement them.
Tigerlilly, like many of the tech focused Ops officers, tends to neglect her paperwork until the last moment leaving occasional odd notations but she is very through when she turns her mind to such tasks as scheduling and resupply, but she can neglect them leading to unnecessary amounts of last minute work. Again, this in a habit that she should grow out of given time and direction."
|See the Universe and help people
|Hobbies & Interests
|Dance, poetry, martial arts, music, pre-spaceflight Terran culture.
|Lylja’s family is part of the Caitian diplomatic corps and she had traveled all over the major worlds of the Federation by the time she was 14.
While having parents who changed planets every year or two might be rough on some, Lylja loved seeing new worlds and meeting new people, but most of all, she loved to travel. New stars, new worlds, new people and new adventures always awaited. Never the best of students, her academic standing was at the very minimum required to be accepted by the Academy. At the Academy she had made friends and was generally well liked.
|Lylja is a solidly average student, except in the physical classes where she excelled. She has only managed to make it in the high pressure of the Operations classes by constant hard work and a network of friends. Many of her instructors have said that she need to focus more on her class work.
Official Starfleet record: Graduated Starfleet Academy with her cadet cruise aboard the U.S.S. Talleyrand.
Lylja received several warnings, none serious, about her practical jokes while at the Academy.
After graduation Tigerlilly was assigned to Leto Colony where she became acting Chief of Operations and then, with a promotion to Lt (jg), official Chief of Operations.
She was then transferred to the Apollo where she was also assigned as Chief Ops before being given the additional responsibilities of 2nd Officer and now, XO.
