|Spring Rain on Still Water|
Specialist 2/C Spring Rain on Still Water was a young female Megarite Oceanographer aboard the USS Enterprise during its refit, originally under Captain Willard Decker, later under Captain James T. Kirk during the V'ger crisis. Spring Rain on Still Water prefers the more adventurous male life, and has been condemned by her matriarchs for "lowering" herself. She is critical of her people's tendency to ignore the wider universe and instead glorify a simple life in the home over exploration or curiosity. These views - and her actions stemming from them - have caused her to be rejected by her family. Her name serves as a clue to her non-conformist attitudes and spontaneous behaviors: "Spring Rain Upon Still Water, I/ Disturb the smooth and staid, and make/ More interesting sounds".
