Catherine Mouranger was a fighter pilot assigned to False Vacuum Squadron in 2415. As a fighter pilot, she flew under the callsign Linebacker.


Born in the Marquain district of Tournai, Belgium, she was given early access in elementary school thanks to her being in the top 8% in pre-kindergarten. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Dear Sixteen-Year-Old Me")

Dunames Lopez was her half-sister; in addition, her parents divorced before Dunames' birth, and Catherine's father had her custody. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Pledge of the Protester")

High school footballEdit

She was billed as "the greatest female linebacker of her generation" (or alternatively, "the greatest female linebacker in Europe") due to her prowess as a high school-level American football player, backstopping the defense of Institut de Marquain to an European high school championship against the Sovetsk Direction Senior High Kants at 16, turning 17 a few days after the game. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Dear Sixteen-Year-Old Me")

Beyond high schoolEdit

She turned down several offers to play football at the university level (Kent State, Laval, Montreal), even going so far as committing to Saint Petersburg State University but having to de-commit from St. Petersburg State due to insufficient grades. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Dear Sixteen-Year-Old Me")

She ended up playing central linebacker for the Yugra State University Checkmates, where she earned a joint BSc-MSc in kinesiology in five years. For six years after her college days, she played for the Moscow Black Storm in the Russian Superleague in a 4-3 defense. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Arthur Porter and the Corpse of Azkapanama")


After she retired from professional football, she decided to join Starfleet. Surprisingly she was assigned to False Vacuum Squadron and assigned midway through the resolution of the murder of Metraux. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Arthur Porter and the Corpse of Azkapanama")

She helped False Vacuum Squadron win the ground portion of the battle of Azkapanama by discovering that the enemy infantry was ineffectual at point-blank range and thus a lightsaber charge was capable of tearing infantry apart. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Murder Grove")

She came face-to-face with her sixteen-year-old self, alongside Dunames Lopez's, due to the usage of the Teenage Device by Rakata, her contemporary in high school. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Dear Sixteen-Year-Old Me")

She gained ace status during the Second Battle of Tovolo. By 2426 she became Starfleet Academy's American football head coach. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Scrap Yard Vegas")
