Personality & Traits
|General Overview||After the breakup of her engagement, Meifeng has a sadness she hasn't quite shaken. She is, however, a person prone to decisive action. She has an eccentric soft spot for Lagashi children's programming, her favorite being "Mr. Locke and Keynes."|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Meifeng has the classic Lagashi stubbornness, perhaps taken to a slightly higher level than most. She is decisive bordering on impetuous. She is quite charismatic.
As a Lagashi, she has both genetic and cybernetic enhancements. She is stronger and faster than an Earth human, with extra muscle density and bones reinforced cybernetically. She carries a pharmaceutical suite that can be used to enhance her immunity and keep her going through exhaustion and injury.
|Ambitions||Meifeng wants to serve the Republic, her family, and the Federation. While she does plan to marry, she has definitely put those plans on hold following the dissolution of her engagement. Once she has finished her military service, she plans to enter business, likely at a military shipyard.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Meifeng enjoys Lagashi children's programming, particularly "Mr. Locke and Keynes." She also enjoys both classic Earth and Lagashi poetry, and old stories. She prefers historical fiction and myth over history. She has tried her hand at holoprogramming.|
|Personal History||Li Ling Meifeng was born on Tien, the second child and eldest daughter of Li Ling Genji, Director of Parks for Hope's Dream, and Li Ling Yun, an artist of some note who designed the holosculpture at the Summit Park. She decided early in life that she would join the Star Navy, and her family connections and academic achievements allowed her into the Naval Academy on Lagash Prime.
After graduation, she gained a posting aboard the LSN Constitution as a fighter pilot, almost exactly in time for the start of the Eighth Breen War. Before leaving for the war, she became engaged to Shi Rou, a florist, and her fiancee Tan Zhen. They agreed to marry once the war ended, and she started to consider cutting her military career short.
During the war, she earned Ace status in the Battle of Garen Epok, shooting down her fifth Breen fighter pilot as her target prepared for an attack run on the disabled USS Kent. This also earned her a promotion to commanding the Fifth Squadron aboard the Constitution.
By the end of the war she had left flight wing service and moved to the attack frigate LSN Tianma as chief helmswoman.
After the war, she returned home to her fiancees, only to find that the years away had changed both herself and them in ways that made life together uncomfortable. They broke off the engagement, and Meifeng sought a posting some distance from Lagashi space. Informed by a relative of the availability of a Starfleet exchange position on a prime explorer that needed an officer both the Federation and the Republic would find trustworthy, she took that opportunity
