Name: Laura Hudson
Position: Commanding Officer
Laura was born into a family of Starfleet
Officers. Her father, Alexander Hudson was CO onboard the USS
Nimitz A for nine years before it was destroyed in conflict
between itself and several Gorn vessels. She was 10 when her
father died. Her father was declared KIA. Jenny Hudson, her
mother, which to this day serves aboard Star base 41 as one of
the Counselors tried to persuade Laura not to go to the academy.
She sent Laura to go stay on Earth with her sister Sarah. She
befriended John Dray, an old man who had been in space most of
his life in Starfleets service.
When she finally turned 18, she left her
sister behind and joined the Academy. It was tough for her as her
mother gave her no support throughout her cadet training. Things
got worse when she discovered that her sister had, had an
accident that took her life. Things looked bad for Laura. She
began considering leaving the Academy and returning home to Star
Base 41. That was at least before she met Ben Malinger, a fellow
fourth year cadet. They became the best of friends for the rest
of their Academy careers. They both majored in Security/tactical
and minored in astral-physics. Before they left the Academy they
made a pack to always remain in contact with each other.
Her first stationing was aboard the USS
Freedom as a Security officer. She quickly impressed the
Commanding Officer which promoted her to Chief Security Officer
immediately after the Old CSOs early retirement. She stayed
onboard the Freedom until she got a Transfer to the USS Nimitz
B, as Executive Officer. When her mother found out,
communication between them began again.
Finally at the age of 31 she was given her
own command, the USS Kursk.
Kind, generous, helpful, charismatic,
flamboyant are a couple of words with which one could describe
her. Other words like loyalty, understanding, decisive could also
be used. In general she always tries to make the best of any
situation. She likes having a happy work environment and
therefore always has her door open to anyone who wishes to speak,
complain, suggest or just generally pop in to say hi to her.
She is about 5ft9. She has long black hair with a blond streak at
the fringe, which she styles, into a simple ponytail. She has a
golden skin color. She has an athletic build and works out often
to keep it like that. She has no tattoos or scars anywhere on her.
