B'Elanna is half-human and half-klingon. Her mother was Klingon
and tried to teach her the ways of the Klingon, but B'Elanna rebelled
against many of the Klingon beliefs. Her father, a human Starfleet
officer, left her mother when B'Elanna was five, and her and her mother moved
to Kronos, the Klingon Homeworld. She is intelligent, and has strong
engineering skills. She has a hard time controlling her temper and can be
very aggressive, which is why she dropped out of Starfleet Academy after
her second year. She then joined the Maquis and served as Chakotay's
engineer. When the Maquis ship was destroyed by the Caretaker, she became
the Chief Engineer aboard the U.S.S. Voyager, with a field promotion to
Attended Starfleet Academy. Dropped out in second year. Academy Professor
P. Chapman recommended B'Elanna for re-admission.
