Maj'el was a 24th century female Vulcan fourth year Starfleet cadet in 2385 who served on the USS Voyager-A and later the USS Prodigy.

Starfleet career[]

Academy years[]

As a cadet, Maj'el was a member of Nova Squadron. (PRO: "Into the Breach, Part I", "Temporal Mechanics 101")

Maj'el later joined the former crew of the USS Protostar in their adventures after Wesley Crusher identified her as an important variable in their role in the future. Having already formed a bond with Zero, Maj'el risked her life to help the others when the Loom was chasing them. (PRO: "The Devourer of All Things, Part II")

Maj'el took part in the repairs to the Protostar, but got separated from the rest of the group in a reality fractured Voyager when Thadiun Okona tried to beam everyone to the bridge which proved to be located in the mirror universe. While Maj'el beamed out with the others, she got left behind in either the reality that they had departed from or one of the others throughout the ship. However, when the crew repaired the anomaly, Maj'el was returned to correct Voyager along with everyone else. (PRO: "Last Flight of the Protostar, Part I", "Last Flight of the Protostar, Part II", "A Tribble Called Quest", "Cracked Mirror")

After returning to Voyager, Maj'el returned to Nova Squadron, but she invited Dal to train with them, despite Zeph and Grom's apprehension. (PRO: "Ascension, Part I")

When the Rev-1 attacked Voyager and the Protostar, Maj'el led Nova Squadron in defending the ship with Dal replacing the injured Grom. Maj'el had Nova Squadron perform the Boothby Supernova, a move that no one had ever pulled off before, to use the Rev-1's own temporal weapon to destroy it. Upon returning to Voyager, Maj'el was embraced by an enthusiastic Rok and tested the sensory inputs on Zero's new containment suit. (PRO: "Ascension, Part I", "Ascension, Part II")

When the others embarked upon a mission to Solum to find and stop Asencia's time-space technology, Maj'el chose to join them, resigning from Nova Squadron as the mission was for non-Starfleet personnel only. Although they succeeded in rescuing Wesley and Ilthuran, the group was captured by Asencia and her forces and forced to fight a Loom. However, they were rescued by Janeway, Chakotay, The Doctor and Wesley. (PRO: "Brink", "Touch of Grey")

Maj'el worked with Wesley and Zero on the calculations to send the Protostar back to Tars Lamora and fix the broken timeline and accompanied the ship through the wormhole. (PRO: "Ouroboros, Part I", "Ouroboros, Part II")

Service aboard the Prodigy[]

Alongside her friends, Maj'el received a field commission to the rank of ensign and a posting aboard the new USS Prodigy, now a training ship. Maj'el manned the forward-left console as the Prodigy embarked on its first mission (PRO: "Ouroboros, Part II")

Background information[]

In an interview with ScreenRant, the Hagemans discussed Dietz's performance:

Kevin Hageman: "And I want to like shine a light on Michaela Dietz, who is our voice actress. She did such a great job. And it's so difficult. To be able to portray a Vulcan in live-action, you could do a lot of subtle facial features to suggest and emote. But in animation on a TV pipeline, it's really difficult. And so, it's all about her voice and how to have that Vulcan drone."

Dan Hageman: "To sound emotionless but at the same time, be filled with restrained emotion. And we always talked about Leonard Nimoy. He could say a line so straight, but have so many barbs in it."

Kevin Hageman: "And then also, I haven't seen a teenage Vulcan. What's a teenage Vulcan? It's not going to be exactly like all the adults. It's someone who's halfway there." [1]

The character's name is a homage to actress Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, who portrayed Number One, Christine Chapel, and Lwaxana Troi, as well as voicing the Federation computer in Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager.
