Personality Overview: Matticchio is a devoted, and imaginative member of the fleet, but she can be, overly sensitive, and quite elusive.
Would like to become a commanding officer. Her new ambition is to one day make the rank of Commodore, and run a Task Force.
Interest: Cooking, Husbandry, Fishing, Basketball, Volleyball, Golf, Tennis, Reading and Tri-Chess.
Born to Mr. and Mrs. Matticchio who were originally of Brooklyn, New York. Elena grew up between the sounds of a Spanish Harlem and Little Italy but always coming home to East Midtown. Life was filled with art, culture and family and of course church. Her parents worked hard and sent all three children to schools of their faith. Taught to be generous, compassionate and above all understanding, Elena took these values with her when she was accepted into Starfleet Academy.
It was a dream come true, for while she will always consider herself the girl next door, she never expected to be part of something big. Elena took pride in her academics, knowing one day she would be great- great like Kirk. Her parents thought she was nuts and assumed she would opt for a posting on Earth, but found that their daughter was more ambitious. At the same time, Elena had taken on Lieselotte Olga Cardozo a German-Brazilian woman just a year older than she, the two were inseparable and fell in love fast. It was at Lieselotte or Lili’s behest that Elena explained that she wanted to do more than just help Uncle Sonny run his Italian restaurant, or Grandpa Acosta with his butcher shop. After hearing her out, the brunette’s parents gave her their blessing, and there she went, to the U.S.S. Tanzania. While aboard the Tanzania, Elena and Lili decided to have a child.
Just as the Ensign would transfer to the El’Nar, Lili gave birth to the couple’s daughter Franka Maria. Soon however, Lili and Elena were at odds and eventually separated sharing custody of Franka or Frankie as they called her, while upset with her relationship; the young and enthusiastic Engineer, was in for a new world as the conflict between the Cardassian Union and the United Federation of Planets continued to grow. Elena too, would grow, becoming harden by loss and battle, she grew to become efficient, but never had she become so harden that she lost touch with her humanity.
Her compassion and bravery earned her several high honors, including the Starfleet Decoration of Gallantry and a Purple Heart. Elena Maria Matticchio, having been a Lieutenant Junior Grade aboard the Federation Starship T’Karath, went above and beyond the call of duty, to maintain the T’Karath’s orbit and in doing so, saved the lives of the many aboard the Miranda-class vessel, and doing so at great cost. The T’Karath survived her battle, but Elena Matticchio would spend the next six months in Sickbay, recovering from her wounds.
Later, while in service to the U.S.S. Ontario, the then Lieutenant Commander Elena Maria Matticchio, again, went above and beyond the call of duty. Suffering heavy losses while reinforcing a Federation Outpost. Elena Maria Matticchio evacuated several decks of the Niagara-class vessel, personally carrying out a dozen crewmen. Returning to her post on the Bridge, Matticchio found both Commanding and Executive Officers incapacitated, making her acting Captain of Starship Ontario. Taking charge of the remainder of the battle force, she ordered them to hold tight around the outpost, coordinating a great defensive effort for approximately twenty four hours until reinforcements had arrived. Under her direction and leadership, the Task Force suffered little to no loss of life. She recieved the Grankite Order of Tactics for her efforts.
It was on the Ontario, that Elena discovered that her dream of commanding a starship was more than a possibility, and continued to work hard and prove to herself, knowing that one day her hard work would pay off.
Unfortunately, her hard work would have to wait. The U.S.S. Bremerton was one of several vessels who had arrived after the Battle of Wolf 359, baring witness to the carnage and waste. Never before had she seen such destruction. As Executive Officer, she assisted in the Bremerton’s efforts into assessing the battle and analyzing weak points. A sick feeling began to rise, a toxic mix of emotions, rage and guilt. This attack was led by one of their own, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, it revealed to her that the enemy they faced was greater than any they had known before… for if they could turn the greatest of all Captains, against them… What hope would they have?
Starfleet recognized her efforts in the wake of Wolf 359, and extended an offer to Elena. The U.S.S. Navajo, taking on the name of an Earth, Native American Nation, the Navajo was no stranger to battle, conflict and remorse. Seizing the opportunity and promotion, Commander Elena Maria Matticchio seeks a way to soothe her demons.
