Amina Sasine was a female human Starfleet officer serving in the late 23rd and early 24th centuries. Hailing from the République de Côte d'Ivoire in Africa on Earth, she had dark skin, dark hair, and hazel eyes. She had one brother and three sisters. She was considered an expert on Romulan troop deployment. In 2319 she held the rank of Captain and was assigned to Helaspont Station on the Tzenkethi border after a tour of duty on Foxtrot XIII.
She previously served aboard the USS Regulus before serving a brief tour of duty on the USS Enterprise-B, until leaving the ship to become executive officer of the USS New York. In 2302, she became romantically involved with former commanding officer John Harriman, with good fortune favoring them when they were able to arrange simultaneous shore leave. By 2303, she'd been promoted to Commander and was the XO at Starbase 23, where she briefed Captain John Harriman and Lieutenant commander Demora Sulu on their covert mission into Romulan space to gather information on new cloaking technology. By 2311, she became the CO of Foxtrot XIII, which was destroyed along with the rest of the Foxtrot Outposts by a rogue Romulan admiral. Following what became known as the Tomed Incident that year, Sasine was assigned to command the Helaspont Station and married her long time love John Harriman.

By 2319, Sasine had been promoted to captain, where instead of eschewing the power of her position she conducted herself as a member of the community. She had been making plans to host a trade summit with the Gorn on the station, and while she was celebrating her eighth anniversary with her husband at Sur Le Mer Coucher Adm. Harriman had to leave when he was interrupted to take a priority one message. She met him in their quarters where he informed her of his intentions to use the USS Cassiopeia by himself through an interdimensional portal in orbit of Rejarris II to rescue the stranded crew of the USS Excelsior. Not wanting him to go alone, Sasine informed Adm. Mentir if the situation, who then temporarily reassigned her to the Cassiopeia for an undetermined length of tour. Sasine left her XO, Lt.Cmdr. Farish, in charge of the station confident that he could handle the summit while she's gone, and took the warp shuttle Antilochus to intercept the Cassiopeia and the USS Enterprise-B.
She informed Harriman of her orders and assisted in preparing to rescue the Excelsior crew, but with the arrival of the Tzenkethi they instead beamed over to the Enterprise-B with the Cassiopeia's helm set to collide with the portal right after the Enterprise-B travels through it. With the successful rescue of the stranded Excelsior crew they traveled to a star designated Odyssey, where they'd use it to traverse through space and time to return to their own universe around the time the left. After several months of traveling to and traversing the star, they finally ended up three weeks before the events at Rejarris II with the Enterprise-B. (ST - The Lost Era novel: One Constant Star)
The two remained happily married until at least the year 2371, where they spent their sixtieth wedding anniversary at Scoma's on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. (TNG - Strange New Worlds VII short story: "Full Circle")
