Personal History Leigh was born on Betazed in 2357 to Lairn, a Betazed Councilman and Rebecca, a Starfleet Diplomatic Officer. There, she lived an easy life as a child to one of Betazed's prominent families, attending balls and celebrations with her friends and parents. She did well in school-- especially in gymnastics and swim meets. She was very competitive, however at the age of 17, while offworld with her school friends for a getaway trip, Betazed was violently and suddenly attacked and conquered by Dominion forces in 2374.

Leigh was sent to Earth to live with the Lee Family--friends of her mother until the war was over. Leigh soon after learned of her parents' deaths and spent 6 months in depression, isolating herself from others until she decided that she wanted to avenge her parents, friends, and homeworld and enlisted into the Starfleet Marine Corps, where she found focus and guidance in her life.

After boot camp, Leigh was assigned as a rifleman to the 2nd Battalion/ 7th Marines. There, she served well under the strict discipline of an Infantry Rifle Company during the closing battles of the Dominion war, distinguishing herself during the Battle of Cardassia.

Four years later, her commanding officer recommended her for the Academy. Wanting to become an officer and lead a unit, Leigh accepted the offer, studying both ground and spacial tactics while minoring in Operations Research.

In 2382, she graduated from Starfleet Academy as an Ensign and was assigned to the USS Spartan as a Security Officer. She quickly earned the respect of those under her as being a former enlisted Marine and those above her for her dedication to training, being promoted to Assistant Security Officer

In 2386, Leigh was promoted and assigned to the USS Essex as the Chief Tactical/Security Officer. During her time here, she was badly injured during a firefight with Orion Pirates. She spent 6 months in rehab before being cleared for active duty again, though the deaths of those under her still weighs heavily on her.

In 2389, she was reassigned to the USS Indefatigable as it's new Executive Officer.

In 2391 after an exceptional tour as XO of the Indefatigable, Leigh was given command of the USS Renown. However, a year later, she was relieved of command due to disobeying an order from Admiral Robertson during a crucial mission and reduced in rank. She was then reassigned to Starfleet Academy as the chief instructor of weapons and tactics.

In 2394, Leigh Jacobs was approached by Starfleet Command to once again take the helm of a starship.
