Gemma grew up on Betazed with her twin sister, Georgia on Betazed. The daughter of a Terran diplomat and a Betazoid graphic artist. Gemma doesn’t consider anything about her upbringing to be anything other than normal. She tended to be a good listener and always willing to help her friends.
She attended the University of Betazed and earned her degree in psychiatry. She took a special interest in people who were suffering from telepathic trauma. After meeting a patient who was the victim of a telepathic criminal, she developed an interest in understanding and ended up being one of the few people in her field of specialization: Criminal Psychology.
Upon graduation from Starfleet Academy, Gemma was assigned to Starbase 84 and the psychiatric department. Showing a unique skill at handling difficult/damaged patients, she was frequently sent to different worlds and stations within the Federation to handling these types of patients on a case by case basis.
Because she spent so much time in transit from case to case, Gemma added several more degrees to her list, including Xeno-Psychology and Cultural Anthropology. Until the present time she had never had a shipboard or long-term assignment.
Because of that she has acquaintances but no real friends, since she was never anywhere long enough to develop friendships. The same applied for romantic relationships. She did attempt a long-distance relationship with another doctor, but they lacked the correct foundation and his demands that she put in for reassignment fell on deaf ears. The break up was bitter on both sides. The experience taught her to never expect anything.
The Belfast is going to be a new experience.
