|Lauren in 2374|
|Actor:||Hilary Shepard Turner|
Lauren Tyler Lauren was a genetically-engineered Human. Lauren's parents took her as a child to undergo an illegal procedure called accelerated critical neural pathway formation, which dramatically increased her intelligence beyond what Humans would call genius level. This left her, however, with an overly amorous personality. She was prone to believing that many different men, including some she had never met, were in love with her. Lauren's delusions did not extend, however, to Jack. This was ironic as Jack often appeared to be the only man who held any kind of attraction towards her. (DS9: "Statistical Probabilities")
- Lauren's surname was never revealed on screen. Tyler comes from Tales of the Jack Pack.
Jack and Lauren had once been romantically involved until Lauren decided Jack was not a good enough lover for her. Since then, Jack had taken to metaphorically injuring her imaginary lovers. This was often done through damaging PADD's containing photographs of these other men. (Tales of the Jack Pack: "Section 31")
