Born to Saurian traders in their small ancestral village, Jiro spent very little time on Sauria. Her childhood was spent crossing the Alpha and Beta Quadrants as her parents traded Saurian Brandy for medical supplies. It was this exploration and meeting many different races that sparked Jiro’s interest in biology and medicine. She would spend hours analysing all the information she could gather about the species her parents encountered especially the Beta Quadrant species.
Starfleet was not her original career choice, she had planned to be a civilian doctor but after the beginning of the Federation-Cardassian War in 2347 Jiro decided to apply to Starfleet.
Jiro was accepted to Starfleet Academy on Stardate 27425.28 (May 17, 2348). Throughout her career at the Acadamy Jiro’s professors noted that she was able to retain vast amounts of information. Jiro was generally well liked among her classmates and was always first to volunteer to assist anyone who needed help.
After completing her four years at the Academy Jiro was accepted into Starfleet Medical Academy where she graduated second in the class on Stardate 27380.88 (April 29, 2355).
Jiro has had a long and varied career. Her first assignment was on the USS Tripoli under the command of Jackson Tirel. From there she has served on at least 5 other starships, including one year on the USS Enterprise-D under Jean-Luke Picard and Chief Medical Officer Katherine Pulaski in 2365.
On Stardate 45353.82 (November 25, 2367) Jiro received a commendation for her participation in the first confrontation with the Borg at Wolf 359 aboard the USS Constantine where her medical skill saved at least 30 crewmembers, 10 of whom had been wounded when an ESP conduit exploded in engineering.
At the beginning of the Dominion War in 2373 Jiro transfered to Starfleet Academy where she met her mate Sikra Jreg. Jiro was attending a Medical Conference on Vulcan at the time of the Breen attack on San Fransico. Her mate, Jreg, was not so lucky and was numbered among the dead.
After this Jiro transferred to the USS Toulouse under command of Captain Tirek as Chief Medical Officer where she served for 8 years. After this tour Jiro was stationed on Cardassia Prime as a Medical Advisor for the Cardassian Reconstruction. Jiro served in this position until 2398, a total of 15 years, when she was transferred to Deep Space 9.
It was here she worked closely with Medical Officer Lieutenant Vera Jed who with her partner had recently adopted a young Betazoid girl, Lwuvele Dedeztre. Jiro became quite close with young Dedeztre, a relationship that would influence both of their careers in the future.
Jiro was planning to retire from active duty in 2412 until she recieved an invitation from the newly promoted Captain Dedeztre to serve as Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Sappho-C. Thus, on Stardate 85949.63 (February 10, 2412), as the Sappho-C was making a routine stop at DS 9, Jiro joined Dedeztre’s crew.
