Species wise, as a Benzite, Lt. Huli has two opposable thumbs on each hand. I’m not sure exactly what that means, but I think it means she has an added level of dexterity to be good at mechanical things. Although as a science officer, that’s not her primary responsibility, she does have that ability.

Personality — Lt. Huli’s distrust of Romulans is with good reason. After the Romulans liberated Benzar from the Dominion and Cardassian forces (circa 2374), the Romulans were reluctant to give up full control of Benzar. While they haven’t annexed Benzar, the Romulans are a little “too involved” in what goes on there. Lt. Huli, understandably, has a natural distrust of Romulans; however, being a meticulous and exact person, she strives to fight against this tendency. It can be difficult for her at times.

Personally, Lt. Huli gets homesick at times. She has a tight family unit; both parents and a younger sister. She feels that she must live up to their expectations of her in Starfleet, as very few Benzites have served in Starfleet. She’s moderately ambitious, which is always at odds with her eagerness to please others. Whom should she put first? Herself? Others?
