Starfleet HistoryUSS Pacifica, where she she served as a junior operations officer. She stood in as Acting Chief Operations Officer during a crisis and handled herself well. After the ship's tragic stop over at DS12 Francine found herself in the deep end as she was forced to get the Operations Department in order after Commander Ottaway's death. Her work in stabilizing the department earned her the position as the ship's Acting Chief Operations Officer. After an evaluation period that concluded with a solo-runabout mission she was named as the ship's new Chief Operations Officer with a promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.
She was further promoted to the rank of full Lieutenant later on in the year. Francine played an important role in the Pacifica's mission in the Archerian System. She was one of the members of the second away team who were caught by the Archerians, upon returning to the Pacifica she played an important role in assisting with the investigation that solved the mystery that the ship was facing. Since then she has continued to serve on the Pacifica without any other incident, and has also formed a number of strong friendships with different members of the crew.
In 2382 during an away team mission on Pearen IV where they were searching for a pirate base. Francine and members of two away teams became stranded on the planet after their Runabouts crashed and they lost contact with the Pacifica. During this mission Francine was badly injured when she saved the life of a fellow crewmember. After taking a nasty fall that had separated her from the rest of the away team she was found unconscious by a powerful sentient life form. This life form managed to communicate with her telepathically with her while she was unconscious. It was through this communication between the two of them that Francine was able to learn the reasons why they had crashed on the planet in this first place. The sentient life form that had found her had been responsible for the entire thing as it had believed the Pacifica and it's crew were trying to move in on it's home and it was trying to protect itself. Realising from that the Pacifica was also in danger Francine was able to convince the alien that the Pacifica and it's crew meant the creature no harm as they had no interest in settling on the planet.Polaris and Ensign Sinclair the alien life form assisted them in getting Francine back to the Pacifica for emergency medical treatment as she was near death. After a long touch and go surgery conducted by Doctor Morgan, Francine began a long recovery process that kept her in Sickbay for just over two weeks and off duty for over a month. For her actions on the planet Francine was awarded the Christopher Pike Medal of Valor for her actions and the Purple Heart for the injuries that she had received.
