Jennifer Watley was a Starfleet scientist on active duty in at least the 23rd century.

Graduating in the top ten percent of her class at Starfleet Academy, Ensign Watley, just like her friend and roommate, Aliz Bathory, drew the USS Lexington (NCC-1709) as her first assignment. Watley was a life sciences officer specializing in xenobiology.

In 2268, and now a Lieutenant, she was transferred to USS Enterprise, where she encountered Dr. Julian Bashir and Chief Miles O'Brien, engaging in a mild flirtation with Dr. Bashir in one of the Enterprise's turbolifts. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Lieutenant Watley was beamed off the Enterprise, along with most of the rest of that starship's crew, during the M-5 wargames tests in which the entire crew of USS Excalibur was killed and Lexington badly damaged. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer") Voluntarily transferring back to the Lexington, Lieutenant Watley was horrified to find that many of her former shipmates and friends were numbered amongst the injured and slain.

Dr. Julian Bashir believes that Jennifer Watley might be his great-grandmother, however, at this time that can be neither confirmed nor denied.


Memorable quotesEdit
