Personal History Born on stardate 237001.07 to Marine Combat Engineer (Finnley Quinn Keating VI) and civilian Physicist (Kacey Keating) in California, Finnley grew up with a love for the water and mechanics.

The Keating family home is located on the coast and anytime they weren't moving from starship to starship for her father's assignments she was out on the water surfing. Surfing is the only passion that she shares with her mother. It's an easy activity to do alone (which worked out for Finnley since she's an only child) and served as a reprieve from the rigors that typically accompany the life of a Marine's daughter.

For the most part, she has always wanted to follow the family tradition of becoming a Starfleet engineer. When they were on a ship for one of her father's assignments, she took every opportunity to be around him while he was in engineering. She has a knack for mechanics, a trait passed down for generations in her family. Anytime she wasn't in engineering, she was likely off with her best friend Tavin (who she considers a brother).

Finn left at the age of 16 to attend Admiral Farragut Preparatory School. Then, following the Keating legacy, Finnley applied to the academy and was accepted at age 18. Although she has an incredible knack for engineering, Finnley hates doing homework which ultimately reflected in her grades. As such, she completed academy training in the middle of her class and graduated at the age of 22 with her degree in engineering.

She served aboard the USS Equinox for 5yrs before accepting the a position on the USS Athena.
