Daystrom Institute careerEdit
Jurati was recruited out of Starfleet by Bruce Maddox to aid him in his android research, and characterized their work as coming "close" to being able to create an advanced android similar to Data. However, after the banning of synthetic lifeforms following the Attack on Mars, as well as the disappearance of Maddox, much of her research was stalled and ground to a halt.
She was approached by retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard at the Institute's Division of Advanced Synthetic Research in 2399, and they discussed the possibilities of creating a new android comparable with previous Soong-types via fractal neuronic cloning. (PIC: "Remembrance")
After Picard related his experiences with Dahj Asha to Jurati, she researched Dahj, revealing to Picard that Dahj's identity, including records of education on Regulus, appeared to have been fabricated only three years prior. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")
Jurati received a visit from Commodore Oh, who questioned her about Picard's visit and told her that Picard was likely to go looking for Dahj's twin sister himself. Jurati thus traveled to Château Picard, arriving in the midst of an attack by Romulan assassins. Jurati shot one of the assassins, then insisted on joining Picard on La Sirena for his mission. She found the first part of the journey on La Sirena "boring". (PIC: "The End is the Beginning", "Absolute Candor")
"How can I help you?"
"You can tell me if it is possible to make a sentient android out of flesh and blood."
"No, really. How can I... Is that why you've come here?"
"Even before the ban, that was... Well... W-Well a flesh and blood android was in our sights, but a sentient one? Not for a thousand years."
"That makes it even more curious that recently, I had tea with one."
Jurati was played by Alison Pill.
