Ensign Melora Pazlar is the first Elaysian to graduate from Starfleet Academy. Her homeworld has low gravity that allows her species to ‘fly’, but the higher gravity elsewhere causes problems for her. While some systems such as artificial gravity can be used to compensate for this, in situations where that isn’t possible (e.g., Deep Space Nine), she relies on motor assist devices as well as an anti-grav chair. She refuses to let her mobility issues prevent her from doing the best job she can as a Starfleet officer, and is fiercely independent. She had a brief fling with Doctor Bashir while she was aboard DS9 (see the episode “Melora“.)
Her Value, I Kind Of Like how It Feels To Depend On Someone For A Change, was originally I Don’t Need Extra Help To Get The Job Done, but it was challenged and replaced after the events of “Melora”.
