Rebecca Greenblatt was a female Human in the 24th century. She was born on Benecia, but soon moved to Pangea. Because of that world's higher than average gravity, she grew no taller than 150 centimeters tall.
She attended Imprek University on Tellar, where she studied structural engineering. While a student there, was an intern with Janus Mining. She was offered a full time job with Janus following her graduation in 2371.
In March of 2381, Greenblatt was made supervisor of a project to upgrade the century-old topaline production facilities on planet Capella IV, with a crew of 177. This project quickly fell behind schedule in its first month, and was then sabotaged by a mine explosion which killed eight of her workers.
Greenblatt held a bias against Starfleet, believing there was nothing they could accomplish that civilian workers could not. She was forced to reevaluate this attitude after meeting Lieutenant Lonnoc Kedair, who discovered the explosion had not been caused by the common explosive ingredient cabrodine, but by nitrilin, a much rarer and more expensive substance.
