Early life[edit | edit source]

In 2361, Alyssa entered the Starfleet Medical Nursing Program and graduated in 2365 in the 95th percentile. After attaining the rank of ensign, Ogawa was assigned to Starbase 133 under Doctor Dalen Quaice. (ST video game: Starship Creator)

The USS Enterprise-D[edit | edit source]

In late 2365, Ogawa was transferred from Starbase 133 and was assigned to the nursing staff aboard the USS Enterprise-D under chief medical officer Katherine Pulaski. In early 2366, she accompanied Pulaski on a mission of mercy to the Cardassian space station Terok Nor in the Bajoran system when a variation of the deadly Double Helix virus was infecting Cardassian and Bajoran alike with a 100% fatality rate. (TNG - Double Helix novel: Vectors)

Upon her return to the Enterprise she began serving under Dr. Beverly Crusher. Ogawa and Crusher became friends, and Crusher was so impressed with her work that she recommended that Ogawa be promoted to lieutenant, junior grade in 2370. (TNG episode: "Lower Decks")

Ogawa also developed a relationship with Lieutenant Andrew Powell from engineering and the two became engaged in 2370. They conceived a child together later that year. It was born in 2371. (TNG episodes: "Lower Decks", "Genesis")

In the novel The Genesis Wave, Book 3, which takes place in 2377, Ogawa's child was a girl named Suzi, and her husband Andrew was still alive. In the ongoing Star Trek: Titan series, however, the child is a boy named Noah Powell, and Andrew had been killed in the Dominion War.

Following the loss of the Enterprise-D in 2371, Ogawa was promoted to full lieutenant, and assigned to the new USS Enterprise-E. During the ship's trip to 2063, she helped evacuate sickbay after the Borg began to overrun the ship. (TNG movie: First Contact)

Following Andrew's death, Alyssa and Noah became very close to Enterprise shipmate Ranul Keru, who had suffered a similar loss. Noah came to consider the Trill to be an uncle. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)
