Personal History Tabitha was born in Mawrth Vallis Mars towards the end of December 2213 the elder of the two daughters of Judith and George Vale a homemaker and an Ambassador respectively. Her sister Sasha was born soon after Tabithas third birthday but when only weeks old the baby was diagnosed with Phoson Syndrome, a life limiting condition without a cure. The family returned to Earth when Sashas health took a rapid decline. She died when Tabitha was ten.

Although she had been aware and understood her sisters problems due to many careful but truthful explanations from her parents as the sisters grew up, losing Sasha had been a traumatic time for the whole family.
After some weeks of Compassionate Leave, Ambassador Vale was appointed to the UN Mars Commission who, under deepening tension between the two worlds, tried to forge a peaceful outcome
In the Spring of 2230, at the invitation of the Martian President, the members of the commission with their wives and husbands journeyed to the Embassy for the formal signing of a peace treaty, long worked for and agreeable to both sides . Tabitha was set to accompany her parents but came down with a feverish cold the day before departure. She encouraged her mother to make the trip, keen that she should share in her husbands moment of honour and assuring her she would be fine looking after herself and could deal with a common cold. Reluctantly her mother agreed.
The following day Tabitha awoke to the news that the Martian terrorist group Red Wave had carried out a three pronged attack on the Venteris Aquila construction yards, the Serenity habitat on Luna and the UN Embassy on Mars resulting in more than 3,000 deaths. Her parents were two of the victims.
The following year Tabitha joined South Exeter University graduating in 2235 with a BH degree in Psychology. This coincided with her call up to StarFleet Reserve where she was able to continue studies resulting in a Masters in Psychology and rank of Ensign two years later. At the celebration ball she met her husband to be.

By 2236 she had served on SB 58 and UNS Johnstown, completed her call up and returned to Earth where she joined the Venteris Corporation and Phase 2 of their Aquila project, her job being to observe, interview and evaluate people in the Aquila Program and to determine those most suitable. StarFleet personnel usually completed the training course within eight weeks but civilians were set to a six month course preparing them for all aspects of deep space travel.

In 2241 she filed her own application to join the programme and a place on Aquila 4 ultimately leading to life on the new world of Proxima Aquilae IV.
