Background/History: Hannah Bates was a colonist on Moab IV, a genetically-engineered and socially isolated colony of Humans. In 2368, when a stellar core fragment of a collapsed neutron star threatened to destroy the colony, its leader, Aaron Conor, accepted help from the Federation. Exposure to the technology on board the USS Enterprise-D showed Bates how much more advanced the Humans outside her society had become.
Personality/Motivation: Her experiences there, in particular her collaboration with Geordi La Forge, who would have never been 'allowed' to be born on the colony due to his blindness and yet demonstrated a technical skill at least equal to her own, challenged many of her beliefs about the colony.
Eventually, Bates requested asylum aboard the Enterprise and was granted it. Her departure encouraged others to go and, in all, 23 colonists left. The damage to the engineered society would take generations to heal.
Quote: "I was born to be one of the best scientific minds of my generation. And in the past five days, I have encountered technology that I have barely imagined. And I've got to ask myself, if we're so brilliant, how come we didn't invent any of these things?"
Powers/Tactics: As one of the leading scientists in her society, she was an expert on biosphere homeostasis and theoretical physics.
Designer's Notes: Doctor Hannah Bates appeared in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Masterpiece Society".
