Lael was born two minutes before her twin brother Kellan on Stardate 236610.24 to Adelynn Rosek in Cedar Springs, Michigan. She never met her father and, due to her mother’s silence, knew very little about him. From a young age, Lael showed a talent for Mathematics and her curious nature led her to a passion for taking things apart to see how they worked. Though she was bullied in her younger years due to her Al-Leyan heritage, her easy-going and compassionate nature won her many friends. As she grew older, she sought more adventurous pursuits, chief among them being sailing, cliff-diving, water skiing, rock climbing, and swimming in local ponds and lakes.
She spent most of her adolescence dreaming of a career as a Starfleet Officer. Following her graduation from high school on Stardate 238505.25, she took the Entrance Exam and began her first day as a cadet on Stardate 238508.07 intending to follow the Command track. She did well academically and was excelling on the Command track until the holovideos and graphic descriptions of torture caused her nightmares and PTSD. She was forced to undergo counseling and drop out of the Command track. Her twin brother convinced her that she would do better in gold than red, and Lael began studying engineering, operations, physics and communications.
Lael Rosek currently serves on the USS Veritas as an Engineering Officer and has made her her way up the ranks to full Lieutenant.
