|NAME:||Cassie Ann Spanik|
|RANK:||Starfleet -- Lieutenant Junior Grade|
|ASSIGNMENT:||Assistant Medical Officer|
|INTERESTS:||In her off duty hours, she enjoys music, playing both the flute and the keyboard, and art being very skilled at sketching and calligraphy.|
Cassie was born on the USS Sarasota to Matt and Sarah Spanik when her brother, Peter Falkla, was 6. Growing up in Starfleet, there were times where one parent was absent due to assignment differences, but the kids always stayed together. When she turned 12, her mom became the head of the Daystrom Institute on Utopia Planitia. At the same time, Peter went to the Academy. Not having Peter around was very strange for Cassie as he had been the one constant in her life.
Before Peter left, Cassie barely cared about her studies as she was naturally bright and was content to coast along. But once he was gone, she buckled down trying to get into the Academy early. She managed to start at Starfleet Medical Academy at 16, but she started right after Peter left for his first assignment. Her parents were worried about her trusting nature getting her in trouble at the Academy and decided she should move in with her grandparents, Admirals Robert Falkla and Cestra West. Robert runs the Operations program and Cestra is the superintendent of the Academy. Between the two of them, they were able to keep Cassie focused and out of any trouble.

She does not like conflict and struggles with her need to keep everyone around happy. Cassie has a natural bedside manner, always willing to listen and sets people at ease. She flew through the schooling and was thrilled to get a ship-based residency on board the USS Odyssey.|
