Denise Crosby is a lively one! She can tell a
joke like nobody else. I got to met her on one
of Joe's SeaTrek Cruises and once again at
another Vulkon Convention. Don't miss an
opportunity to met her in person. She is 'cool'
so to speak and is a lot of fun to be around.
The original security chief under Captain Jean-Luc Picard on the U.
S.S. Enterprise led a tragic yet heroic life until her death in the line
of duty in 2364. Yar was born on the failing colony world of
Turkana IV in 2337, but both her parents were killed in the
crossfire among the planet's cadre infighting just after her younger
sister Ishara was born some 4 1/2 years later. After their foster
care family abandoned them within months, the girls led a violent
and harrowing life on the streets, eluding rape gangs and drug
addiction while fending for themselves. One comforting companion
amid the chaos at the time was a kitten. Yar finally got off the
world in 2352, at age 15 Â— just about the time the colony broke
all contact with the UFP. She invited Ishara to join her, but the
younger sister refused, preferring the protection of her Coalition
cadre there. The two never saw each other again, although Ishara
learned of her sister's legacy from Enterprise officers in 2367.
Picard had asked for Yar aboard the Enterprise after he first saw
her as she risked her life in a Carnelian mine field to save a
colonist, and her current captain owed him a favor. Despite a
valiant effort by Dr. Crusher, on SD 41601 during a rescue mission
on Vagra II she died as a result of injuries from an invisible energy
bolt to her head by the malevolent creature Armus; it left a blotch
on her jaw. A memorial service that featured a holographic
recording of her last thoughts and thank-yous to her closest
shipmates was held later. Well-trained in martial arts and athletics,
her favorite pastimes were aikido and Parrises squares, and she
participated in ship-board competitions. Having grown up hardened
to sentimentality, she found it a struggle to express her femininity
Â— although the Tsiolkovsky virus allowed her to share an
intimacy with Data once, an intimacy he treasured with a small
hologram from her memorial tape, though he was forced to
disclose the encounter during his trial for sentient rights a year
