In mid 2374, Karyn was asked to assume the responsibilities as the Galaxy's Chief Counselor, taking over the role of leading both the Counseling and teaching departments on board the Starship. It was unexpected, but Karyn stepped up to the challenge. Within a few months of taking over the department, several senior ranking officers returned to the Galaxy and now serve under Counselor Dallas in spite of her lower ranking status. Having senior officers below her in the chain of command has only added to the interesting times Karyn has had learning what it takes to run a department on board a starship such as the USS Galaxy.
By the end of 2374, serving during the Dominion war with her extra responsibilities, Karyn received a promotion to full Lieutenant on board the USS Galaxy.
After the end of the Dominion War in 2575, Karyn received the Starfleet Medal of Valor Citation for her part in assisting Admiral Thomas J. Casey's fleet of Akira Starship's mission into the Romulan Neutral zone. Karyn served as First Officer on the USS Wellington and did an outstanding job at insuring the mission was successful. A short time upon returning to her assignment on board the USS Galaxy, Karyn was promoted to rank of Lieutenant Commander.
In early 2375, Karyn decided she wanted to continue her education. Because of their medical training, she and other counselors aboard the Galaxy were often called upon to serve as nurses during emergencies. It was this occasional service that led Karyn to seriously consider a career in nursing. She still loved counseling others, but she felt training as a nurse would broaden her horizons and allow her to better understand how the body and the mind work together to promote physical and emotional healing. Karyn contacted Starfleet Medical and under the supervision of the Distance Education Coordinator, Dr. Nora Gandy, and the Galaxy's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Endris Gakor-Albrecht, Karyn began her nursing courses. By mid 2376, Karyn had passed her nursing boards with flying colors, graduating with honors. She is a Registered Nurse, specializing in both surgical and emergency medicine. A year later, in mid 2377, Karyn was promoted to full Commander by Starfleet command.
Tradgically, when the Galaxy's Chief Operations Officer was killed during an away mission, the position of Second Officer became available. Karyn was offered the position and accepted. She's now receiving training to act as Executive Officer whenever the First Officer is unavailable or on assignment like away team missions.
Karyn was relieved of her duties as Second Officer and Chief Counselor of the USS Galaxy and reassigned by Starfleet Command in December 2377. No explaination was given as to why Karyn, and several other officers (including the Captain) were relieved of their duties on board the USS Galaxy.
After carrying out a classified mission for Starfleet Command, Karyn was reassigned back to the USS Galaxy to her former position as Chief Counselor and second officer.
Besides using her modern hoverchair for getting around on board the ship, Karyn also has a set of exoskeleton "power legs" engineering created for her that she can wear that give her normal mobility. The electro/bio-mechanical devices allow her to walk around like any other person on the ship. However the added weight and electronic stimulation of her limbs is quite tiresome. Because of this, Karyn tries to limit the use of the exoskeleton system as much as possible when practical to do so.
