Personality & Traits

General Overview General Overview: As elegant as she is charming, Noa is a natural peacemaker. The middle child of her parents’ three children, and the slightly older twin, Noa is the balance between Priya’s pragmatism and Nia’s impulsiveness.
Growing up all over Federation space, Noa learned about many different cultures, which has led to her career in diplomacy. She has always believed that fighting should be a last resort and not the first option. That doesn’t mean she can’t fight, she can, she just doesn’t like it. If something she does prevents a conflict, it's a good day.
Strengths & Weaknesses Friendly, knowledgeable, tolerant, patient and cooperative, she has all the strengths of any good diplomat. Unfortunately, that doesn't exactly make her the best officer. She likes to think outside the 'Starfleet approved' box and it's landed her in a touch of trouble over the years.
An advantage for her job, but not so much for her as a person, Noa can inhibited and very guarded. It takes some effort for her to let her hair down.
Noa can also be manipulative, but she only uses her powers for the greater good.
Ambitions Noa would, eventually, like to command a vessel.
Hobbies & Interests Noa has been dancing since she was a child. It was one hobby that she could do anywhere and doesn’t need anything. She also likes to meditate, as it helps keep her as grounded as possible. She also has a fascination with languages, and it usually proves helpful with her duties. While it’s rare that she has to use any of them, she does speak Vulcan, Andorii, some Klingon, and a few Earth languages, in addition to Federation Standard.

Victor, her father, is a follower of Hinduism. Though Noa doesn’t practice any religion herself, she does have a functional understanding of a few of them.

Noa has a sympathy for the Maquis and she feels that the Federation’s conflicts with the Cardassians and the Dominion War could’ve played out differently had the Federation heeding the warning from the citizens inside the DMZ. She doesn't agree with their methods, but she does understand why they broke from the Federation.

Personal History Born to a Starfleet scientist and a teacher, 6.2 minutes before her twin, Noa Jaqueline Modi is the classic example of fleet kid. Growing up all over the quadrant, there isn’t much she hasn’t seen, though her parents tried to keep the worst of it from them until they were teenagers.

Joining Starfleet wasn’t really a choice as much as it was an inevitability. From early on, she seemed to be on a path to the fleet. Where her twin, Nia, loved being in one place, Noa never really had the urge to stay in the same place for too long. And, looking on it now, it was probably good that she decided not to join the Federation Diplomatic Corps.

In 2375, the Breen launched an attack on Starfleet HQ in San Francisco. Anna, her mother, and Priya, her older sister, were both killed in the attack. They were having lunch with her dad near his office. Noa took leave for a year to take care of her dad, who lost an arm and an eye, and to take care of Nia, who, along with other medical professionals from all over the Alpha Quadrant, jumped to help with the massive amount of people needing medical attention.

It was during one of the many conversations with her dad at that time that led her to applying to the Command College. Admiral Ross, who she served under during the war had endorsed her application, unbeknownst to her until much later. She’s pretty sure that he’s the reason she got Kips Bay. With her home of the last 6 years being decommissioned, Noa is looking forward to whatever awaits on the Sunfire.
