Ambitions Jane is a lifelong learner, and wants to continue her education while serving in her post as Chief Medical Officer. Though she hasn't found a subject worthy of a third doctorate, she wants to learn anything and everything she can in the life sciences.
Hobbies, Interests, Likes, and Dislikes During her downtime, Jane loves a good book. Her focus lately has been nonfiction works on the history of medical or scientific fields. She also enjoys playing games of all types with her friends; though she is not particularly skilled at most athletics, she still has fun playing them.

Jane also enjoys cooking. As a veterinarian, she appreciates the work that goes into keeping animals healthy enough to bring to market, and respects the animal for its sacrifice in keeping her fed. She loves to learn the cuisine of different cultures, and occasionally tries to bring them together.

Jane loves music. She plays the piano very well and has a nice singing voice.

She doesn't care much for particularly dangerous situations. She loathes the adrenaline rush that comes with flying too fast or being scared. On duty, she will push through it to get things done, but she'd just as soon avoid it while off duty. She also has no desire to get into a fight or confrontation.

She also dislikes spending time in the gym or other fitness facilities. She does enjoy swimming though, and walking outdoors.
Languages Known English, French, Vega Colony Creole/Patois
Medical profile Vega Colony's gravity is slightly higher than Earth's, which gives her a slightly more dense bones and muscle. She resists broken bones a bit more than most Humans. She had surgery to remove her appendix as a child, but otherwise no serious injuries or illnesses.

Personal History Jane Elisabeth Sinclair was born in 2230 on Vega IX, more commonly called Vega Colony. Her family lived on a farm, though her parents were both geneticists. Most farm work was done by machines or skilled labourers, while her family's contribution was in developing new breeds of plants and even animals that are more productive, calorific, and nutritious. She grew up steeped in the biological sciences, but ended up being more fascinated with human and animal health over molecular biology. At age 13, she began an apprenticeship with the Colony's medical and veterinary staff, where she got significant insight into the practice of medicine. In one particularly busy week, she helped deliver a newborn human and a newborn calf, both of which involved complicated pregnancies.

Her first experience with the health of a nonhuman sentient came at age 16, when an Andorian transport stopped at Vega IX with several wounded crewmembers. She saw firsthand all the ways that treating aliens could be identical to treating humans or animals, and all the ways that it differed significantly. The same drug that might be appropriate for one could kill another, a truth she was faced with when one of the Colony's doctors accidentally prescribed the wrong thing, nearly killing one of the Andorians. This notion fascinated her further, and helped influence her decision to practice medicine in space.

The event that solidified her decision to practice medicine in space happened when she was 17, when two Klingon Birds of Prey attacked Vega Colony, killing dozens and severely damaging the colony's infrastructure. A Starfleet vessel managed to chase off the Klingons and beamed down medical support staff. It was her first real disaster. She did her best to help while staying out of people's way. Her instructors told her she was great under pressure and urged her to join Starfleet. In truth, she was terrified, but managed to bottle that pressure up and release it only when it was safe to do so.

At age 18, she applied to the Starfleet Medical Academy and was accepted. Though quite young, Academy officials took into account her many years of on-the-job apprenticeship, which was increasingly common among applicants from Human colonies. She opted to specialize in humanoid medicine, but continued to study veterinary medicine as well. There she met her roommate Emmanuelle Larose, who would be her best friend for years to come. Emmanuelle transferred to the traditional Starfleet Academy after only one year, abandoning a medical career for the hard sciences, but the two remained in close contact. Jane would occasionally join Emmanuelle in starship operation courses at Starfleet Academy, as she wanted to end medical school a fully commissioned officer.

Midway through her education, Jane was given the opportunity to serve for six months aboard the USS Pascal (NCC-0621, Ohio-class) as a medical student learning under the CMO, Dr. Alice Rios. During this time, she was involved in the rescue of the crew of a ship destroyed by Orion pirates and helped stop a plague on Rigel V. This experience reaffirmed her desire to practice medicine in space.

At age 25, she completed a seven-year program and earned her Doctorate of Medicine and her commission. She was third shift doctor aboard Starbase One for eighteen months, after which time her old mentor, Dr. Rios, learned where she was and decided she was being underutilized. She arranged for Jane's promotion to Lieutenant (jg) and made his Assistant Chief Medical Officer.

While aboard USS Pascal, Jane decided that she wanted to continue her education in veterinary medicine. Though her superiors didn't believe it would add value, they saw her passion for the work and so she was permitted to take courses from the Royal Veterinary College during her off-duty hours. She managed to do her clinical work during stopovers at various Federation colonies. After two and a half years, she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

In 2261, she accepted a promotion to Lieutenant and the position of Chief Medical Officer aboard USS Legacy.
