Alexia grew up on Earth's moon, at Armstrong's Landing. A bright and energetic kid, she enjoyed school and made the most of her upbringing. She lived with her father, as her mother had left her with him and gone off to experience life in the galaxy - not wanting to be tied down.
Her father was rarely there for her, as he had to work three jobs to pay the bills, so on the rare occasions he was around, they spent it trying to enjoy each other's company. Her dad taught her many of her life-skills, as well as how to play a mean game of cards.
At 18, with excellent grades, she enrolled in Starfleet Academy, as that's what anyone with any intelligence went into. It was the best way to further her intellectual persuits and further her career. Right from the start, she wanted to be the youngest Admiral in Starfleet history - an ambitious goal if ever there was one.
Her academy days proved to her that she had a knack for this type of work, and excelled in various disciplines. However, in her third year, she started a passionate affair with one of her instructors, Commander Victoria Betham, and was caught performing leud sexual acts in a public area. She was hauled before the discipline board, and reprimanded, and her academic credits for the third year cancelled.
Alexia had to work harder than before to not only regain her lost credits for the third year that she was forced to repeat, but to get out from under the stigma that she'd inherited. Cast as a sexual deviant with no morals or ethics, she was prohibited from taking the command element in her fourth year, instead being told to find another discipline.
Ashamed and put down, she went into Engineering, and graduated twentieth in her group. Convinced everyone had it out for her, she was determined to make her career a good one.
Assigned to the USS Grissom as an Assistant Engineer, she worked hard to remove the stigma that she carried, and be judged on her merits. No matter how hard to she tried, she always found herself getting into trouble over a beautiful woman. Accepting this, she quickly found herself a nit of close friends, who protected her from herself - mostly.
With her advance to Lieutenant JG, she was transferred to Starbase Infinity, where she did a three year tour as Assistant Chief Engineer. She liked her time on Infinity, and was accepted for who she was, not who she'd been in the Academy. It was here she had her first proper relationship, with a civilian bartender, Georgina Andrews. This lasted for two years, until a messy break up forced Alexia to leave Infinity and accept a deep space assignment.
Recieving a promotion to Lieutenant, she was made Chief Engineer of an Intrepid class starship, the USS Janeway. Whilst she should've enjoyed her time in this role, she didn't. She found her old ambition rising to the surface, and started looking for command roles. Accepted into the command course at the Academy, she took a semester to gain her command rating at last.
Once out, she was posted to the USS Quinn as Chief Engineer and Second Officer. She did her three tours on the Quinn, but never really made a home for herself. She was promoted to Lieutenant Commander in her last tour, but quickly wanted to move on.
It was during this time that she met a beautiful Asian woman named Mitsu Sato. They had a wonderful romance, and Alexia accepted a staff post to just be near her. They married two years later, and when Mitsu was given command of the USS Intrepid, Alexia was asked to be her Executive Officer.
She accepted the promotion, and the two newly-weds settled into married life on the Intrepid. They even had a child by one of Mitsu's male friends donating the sperm, and Alexia carried to term. Naomi was supposed to bring them joy and happiness, but the new responsibility weighed heavily on Mitsu, and caused the couple to separate.
Eventually, after a three year separation, they divorced. By this time, Alexia was back on Earth raising their daughter, and was desperately sad. After pulling herself together, she applied to get herself back on the waiting list for a command.
She was given command of the USS Trailblazer, a little cutter that did Sol System defense, but a command was a command. She held the post for a year before she was elevated to Captain, and assigned to the USS Crazy Horse.
