Lenerea Mendel was a female half-Trill, half-Human who lived during the 24th and 25th centuries. She served in Starfleet as communications officer of the USS Vengeance and held the rank of lieutenant junior grade as of 2410.
Early Starfleet career
Lenerea and Dylyp Azeli were briefly stationed on Starbase 24 until stardate 83234.7, when they were transferred to the USS Leviathan under the command of Lenerea's old flame, Jason Fredricks. Lenerea took up the vacant communications officer position that had been left by Hannah Freeman.
Service on the USS Leviathan
On stardate 83245.3, Jason took temporary leave from command of the Leviathan, and his stand-in, Commander Jarek Davis, removed Lenerea from the bridge communications station and told her to report to the science duty head.
She was part of the group of senior officers who opposed Davis' unorthodox methods of running the ship, and even suspected him of being a Tal Shiar agent. They planned to report him to Starfleet Command, but Davis caught on to their suspicions of him and had them all locked in the brig. Later, she and the other senior officers retook the bridge from Jules Vanden, who had been left in command while Davis was down on the Treasure Trading Station.
Lenerea and Jason were involved in a romantic relationship during their days at Starfleet Academy. After hearing rumors of her having an affair with another Starfleet cadet, Jason ended their relationship, however, he later regretted it.
Lucas Wells attempted to get them to make amends, though initially, they refused. Later on, though, both of them came to realize that they were wrong for holding onto their hatred for one another.
Jason often affectionately referred to her as "Len".
Lenerea and Elisa were roommates at Starfleet Academy. According to Elisa, Lenerea was not very good at "keeping a guy". She would always back out of relationships when they got too serious for her taste. This behavior even escalated to the point that she slept with another cadet while she was dating Jason to make him break up with her.
