Personal History Lainey was born in 2370 as the daughter of Elena Laurence and Cadet Daniel Richards without the knowledge of the latter after a summer romance the previous year. Growing up with her Mother as her sole role model, she saw a string of men come and go from her life for the first several years, building up an opinion that they equated to simple pass times rather than meaningful pursuits by her early teens.

However, all of this changed in early 2386, when her mother was killed in a climbing accident and she was sent to live with the Father she never knew on his Starship, the USS Paladin. It was a difficult period of adjustment for the both of them, with Daniel, a man who had been so fixated on his career he'd not even considered marrying and having children until his mid thirties, struggling to suddenly deal with his newfound teenage daughter. This, coupled with the fact that he and his new wife were expecting their first child, often led to disagreements between the two, stemming from their lack of a relationship.

Upon the birth of her brother, Henry, shortly after her sixteenth birthday, she slowly began to build a relationship with her father, though more so with her step-mother. However, upon the separation of the pair in early 2387, Lainey finally began to empathise with her Father; same as Lainey herself, everyone around him seemed to leave. To compound the matter, Lainey herself had also just completed her Starfleet Entrance exam and was due to enrol in the Operations division. Shortly after, she left with her father's blessing.

Lainey found the Academy challenging, mostly due to the nature of her partially Betazoid physiology. She rapidly found herself with something of a negative reputation amongst the males on campus, and a positive one with the females; If she picked up a guy was lying about his intentions, she'd tell the girl. This led her to a couple of altercations, leading to her taking up bare knuckle boxing.

In 2391, she graduated from Starfleet Academy in the 75th percentile. She was then assigned to Deep Space 16 in orbit of Risa as a junior operations officer. A year later, she was promoted to the position of acting Chief of Operations. In early 2393, she was promoted to Lieutenant Jg. A few months later, she was transferred to Starbase 47 as part of her transfer to the Flight Control Division, specifically serving on the garrison ship, the Chekov.

The following year, Lainey transferred with several other personnel from Starbase 47 to the Starship Wolff, continuing the role of Assistant Chief Flight Control Officer. This is a role she would continue in the following year onboard the next posting for the crew, the Sovereign Class Starship Imperator. She would serve here for 18 months until early 2397, when she was transferred to Starbase 718, returning once more to the Operations division as she took up the role of Chief of Starbase Operations
