Early life and careerEdit
As offworld immigration to Mars increased over the next several years, Dr. Canapp found herself dealing more and more with alien pathogens. To better equip herself, she took an internship at the Academy of Biosciences on Centaurus in 2366.
During the Federation Civil War, Starbase 129 was far enough removed from the center of hostilities that, according to Canapp, "the war might as well not have been going on." While the internal Federation conflict wasn't high on her priority list, she did find herself treating a number of Cardassian refugees during the Klingon-Cardassian War.
In 2373, there was an outbreak of Rigelian fever aboard a Talarian freighter that docked at the starbase. Canapp treated the Talarian crew, and they appeared to make a full recovery, but she was surprised two days later when four of the crew died suddenly. Examining the bodies, Canapp found that the fever had mutated, bonding to portions of their DNA. She tested the rest of the crew for the same condition, with negative results. Before Dr. Canapp could investigate further, the four bodies disappeared from the station's morgue and the Talarian ship departed. After she made inquiries, a Starfleet Intelligence officer came to collect her research material, and encouraged her to let the matter drop. (PDN: "Dark Helix")
Along with Riniker, Tina transferred to the USS Pendragon in 2379, where she served as Chief Medical Officer. Less than an hour after coming aboard the Pendragon, she was called to the transporter room, where she discovered the bodies of four crewmen who had been the victims of transporter sabotage. Shortly thereafter, she treated Admiral Mark Coleman for radiation poisoning. (PDN: "True North", "Restoration")
