BIOGRAPHICAL HIGHLIGHTS


Natasha Larson is a young intelligent lady with a strong "can do" attitude. She has a strong personality and a firm counselling method, telling it how it is. Whilst for some, this method does little to help, Tasha is very good at reading people and is quick to know who she can work with and who she can't. Her surprise promotion to Head Counsellor on her previous ship worked wonders for this, and she was able to develop a softer counselling method, rounding her out as a counsellor.


Never destined for counselling, Tasha was, at first, training for command. However, in the academy, she unexplainedly switched out of the command module and her original engineering track, into sciences, taking psychology and counselling modules. Only a handful of people know why; suffering from devastating depression after her longtime best friend and love of her life, Jenny Cartwright, left her for Samuel Bishop, her life took an entirely new turn. She couldn't stand being in the same classes as her former lover and she tried to find ways to win her back, using her psychology knowledge to help her. It wasn't enough and ultimately Tasha and Jenny cut all ties.


After Jenny and Sam graduated, Tasha was left alone and became increasingly isolated. Her shining light was her appliance to her studies, graduating two years later with honours. Posting after posting, she excelled and refined her skill, steadily rising through the ranks. But whilst she was fine on the outside, on the inside she was increasingly unstable; the only indication of this being her unusual request to always transfer between posts, never really settling. Her continuous transfers did allow her to pick up different command styles and only helped her counselling techniques. She also began to pick up some medical training, eventually receiving a First Aid medical certification allowing her to assist doctors and nurses in times of emergency.


It was at Vulcan, surrounded by logical beings, did she finally break and attempted to commit suicide. Saving her life Alfre, then a Commander and First Officer of the USS Endeavour, offered her a post on the ship where he could keep an eye on her recovery. She accepted, Alfred being the first person since Jenny to show her any care and under his guidance, began to overcome her self-depreciating thoughts. She also hoped that being posted on the same ship as Jenny, she could start something new. To her shock, she learnt that Jenny had been killed during the Iconian War and that it was Captain Samuel Bishop in charge of the Endeavour.


At first, she showed Sam immense hatred but due to her posting as Head Counsellor, she was assigned to Sam's post-capture treatment. Over time, the pair warmed up to each other and Tasha began to view Sam as a friend rather than a rival, the two of them bonding of their shared past. On the Endeavour and with Sam, Tasha finally found a home that she had so craved after the academy, and a friend in whom she could confide.
