Stormy comes from a big bustling Irish family. John and Miss
Lily celebrated their 45th anniversary this year. Stormy is oldest
girl in a family of twelve. -Responsible, fun loving, sassy and
brilliant. A quick study.
Her immediate family resides on a vineyard and farm just outside
of New Orleans. As a child she played with her brothers and sisters
and went to school in the kitchen where they were taught by her
mother, father (when home on leave) and great -grandparents. Education
began early in life in the OBrien home.
From her father she learned to show no fear in the face of her
enemy, to be brave and upright that her god will love her. To
speak the truth always, to safe guard the helpless and to do no
wrong. From her brothers and sisters diplomacy, to remain
cool under fire, to stand her ground and survival skills. From
her great-grandma Etain to speak fluent Klingon and Vulcan. She
thinks the Vulcans are highly illogical. Stormy picks up
languages with ease. (The mun does not.)
Her family are her greatest teachers, closest companions, and
harshest critics. Most of the Family O'Brien keep their feet on
planet earth but a few of them had stars in their eyes from birth
and saw far beyond the horizons of Earth. Stormy was one of those.
With her grandfathers sextant she plotted the stars and discovered
At age 11 Stormy was chosen from a pool of applicants for a two-year
school at an Observatory in the Amazon Rain Forest, by day the
children learned about animal husbandry and released parrots and
other wildlife into the forests. Except for Max. No one could
make him leave the camp. He just kept coming back. He adopted
Stormy. (Max is an 11 year old scarlet macaw parrot that goes
nearly everywhere with his Stormy.) At night she learned Astronomy
While studying in the Amazon a Starfleet recruiter took note
of several children and impressed by two. Shes pretty sure
family and friends had something to do with a recruiter finding
them. Stormy had her first encounter with an Alien race there
also. She doesnt talk about it often and would like to forget
about the experience.
The fall following graduation from the Amazon Observatory found
her engrossed in studies LSU. In her free time Stormy loves to
sail- to plot by the stars sometimes she would just lay in the
bottom of an old flat bottom boat and float along the bayou looking
up at the stars thinking on theories the professors taught in
school. It is said that she wrote her thesis while adrift. Four
months before her 18th birthday, Stormy graduated Magna Sum Laude.
Then off to Starfleet Academy where she excelled in the fields
of Astrobiology, Astrophysics, Paranormal Science and Xenon Philosophy.
She rose in rank slowly because of her studies and then teaching.
By her 21st birthday, Stormy attained a double PhD in Astrobiology
and Astrophysics with a minor in Xenon philosophies She can plot
a map through many different star systems while debating the creation
of the planet and system.
