Maria Morelli was a human astrophysicist and officer in the Federation Starfleet who served on board the USS Excelsior, and then the USS Intrepid in the 23rd century. (TOS comic: "Who's Who in Star Trek 2")


Morelli was born on the planet Centaurus. In her youth, she developed a love for the stars and studied hard to be accepted into Starfleet Academy.

Once there, Morelli met a older classmate named Torin and the two of them started a serious relationship. Unfortunately, Torin chose to pursue a teaching career at the academy and offered Morelli a post to teach astrophysics. Morelli, though tempted by the feelings she had for Torin, decided to pursue a active career pursuing the stars.

One her first assignments as a cadet had her assigned to the USS Lexington. There Morelli was able to reach the rank of Lieutenant. She then went to serve on several other short-term assignments prior to being assigned to the USS Excelsior. (TOS comic: "Who's Who in Star Trek 2")
