Aggressor Class Tour & Exhibit.
Like Counselor Troi from the S.T. The next Generation show, Murphy is aboard to monitor and maintain the crews mental health. And with a troubled crew like the crew on the Audacious, Murphy has her work cut out for her. Her first name was from a roleplayer with the same first name. However the true first and last name that roleplay writer remains unclear. Dianne's last name was given by the graphics guy who used to be named Donald Murphy. Murphy had a secret crush on Dianne.
Dianne Murphy was born in late 2341. her parent affectionately nic named her "Di,"
One of Dianne's most prized possessions as a child was her ancient Medical Tri corder. When Dianne was a girl, she took her Medical Tri Corder everywhere she went. In 2346, at the tender age of five, Murphy performed her first surgery on her neighbors pet Cat when she found it lying in the road. The pet survived. Murphy continued to hang on to her Ancient Medical Tricorder well into her adulthood.
It was later found out that shortly before the Murphy family moved to Alpha Mo atta Prime. Dianne was Medically enhanced as an infant. at 3 years old. These treatments, known as "accelerated critical neural pathway formation," were a method of genetic engineering that involved the resequencing of her DNA. her genetic structure was manipulated to accelerate the growth of the neuronal networks in her cerebral cortex, and a new Dianne Murphy was born.
The focus of her "enhancements" were to increase her mental abilities and as such, her IQ jumped five points a day for over two weeks. Further treatments led to improvements in her hand-eye coordination, reflexes, vision, stamina, height, and weight. In the end, everything but her name had been altered in some way.
The Murphy's returned to Earth and moved to a different city, where Dianne was enrolled in a new school using falsified records her parents obtained somewhere. Instead of being the slowest learner in her class, Murphy was the star pupil.
As a child, Murphy was afraid of doctors because they seemed to know everything, as if they held the power of life and death in their hands. She used to think that if she didn't behave, they would make her sick. In 2351, at the age of ten, she was living with her family on Lancaster CA. She and her father got caught in an ionic storm and found shelter with a girl who became ill and later died because no one present knew that a nearby herb could have saved her. Dianne's father took her to a Medical Counselor to help her understand the experience. This memory further influenced Murphy's choice to become a doctor and a Counselor. As she got older, she decided that she wanted to know what doctors knew, to be as smart as they were. Upon furthering her education, she learned that all she really wanted to do was help people.
In 2356, at the age of fifteen, Dianne stopped calling herself Di when she found out her parents had her genetically enhanced, believing that her parents had considered her defective.
