Starfleet History
2378: Reassigned to USS Voyager as Chief Helm Officer

Personal History
Tare was a Starship pilot of exceptional skill, and during the Dominion War, she was awarded the Grankite Order of Tactics and the Starfleet Citation for Conspicuous Gallantry for her actions. In early 2378, she was taken captive by photonic rights activist Oliver Baines during the so-called "HoloRevolution". She was held in a holographic environment, where she may have been sexually assaulted by the holograms, but volunteered no information on the subject. After Tare's release, her commanding officer noted concerns over "erratic behavior" in her personnel file, as well as her request for a transfer.

When the starship USS Voyager relaunched under Captain Chakotay in mid-2378, she assumed the position of conn officer. During her first physical exam, Voyager's new Chief Medical Officer, Doctor Jarem Kaz, confronted Tare about his suspicions that she had been raped by the rogue holograms, she angrily left sickbay without confirming his suspicions. Doctor Kaz noted that if she was sexually assaulted, that she needed to deal with that fact and not suppress it. It is currently unknown if Tare ever sought out help for her problem.
