June 2020: Character of the Month – Lieutenant Commander Kefira Ben-Ami

This month, we look at the woman that keeps the crew of Challenger’s health in top notch: Kefira Ben-Ami! Originally she joined the ship as a lieutenant and after receiving a battlefield promotion she led a majority of the crew to safety after the ship was heavily damaged from the Carreons. A respected member of the crew, here are some facts about her:

  1. She is a member of the Interspecies Medical Programme and has a range of medical and scientific degrees!
  2. Prior to joining Starfleet she served in the Israel Defence Force.
  3. Kefira is known as Ro-fa by many of the crew.
  4. She was once a mother, but her daughter was killed in an accident. This caused a strain on her marriage and her husband divorced her. She would later find out that he died during the Terra Prime incident in 2154.
  5. Since joining Challenger, Kefira regularly takes her lunch with Ned Hennessey (Chief Communication Officer) and Viktoria Yu (MACO Detachment Commander) as they are three of the oldest members on the ship.
