Profile: Captain Pari is a proven combat veteran who is tough, brave, efficient and able to think fast under pressure. She has inspired great loyalty in every crew she has served on. In addition, she has shown a talent for diplomacy and dealing with non-humanoid lifeforms.
It is advised that this officer never be assigned any sort of desk job, as that would be a waste of talent and in all probability cause her to resign her commission. Advise that she be considered for Deep Space Duty when the new Extrasolar Class ships go online in 1964.
