Carol Abramowitz, Ph.D., was a human crewman in Starfleet in the 24th century, a specialist in sociology and alien cultures.

Early life

Early in her career, Abramowitz considered becoming an archaeologist. (SCE eBook: Fables of the Prime Directive) She earned her Master's degree from Cambridge University in London, where she was classmates with Gabriel Collins. Both then went to Cairo, Egypt to earn their doctorates. Though she was physically attracted to Collins, her feelings were never reciprocated. (CoE eBook: Remembrance of Things Past)

Early in her career, Abramowitz was friends with fellow sociologist Martin Mansur. However, Mansur betrayed her by stealing her work and ideas, which he turned into a presentation that earned him one of the highest honors of their profession. As a result, she avoided any professional conferences where the two of them might cross paths for several years afterward. (SCE eBook: Age of Unreason)

Prior to joining Starfleet, Abramowitz worked on a number of university-backed projects, and often had to fight vigorously with administrators to continue funding for her work. (CoE eBook: Remembrance of Things Past) She was also, at one point, offered a research posting on Memory Alpha, which she ultimately declined. (SCE eBook: Foundations, Book Three)


Ambramowitz enlisted in Starfleet in 2365. (CoE eBook: Turn the Page) In 2370, at the request of Commander Uxmen, she investigated the transplanting of a Boraalan village by Nikolai Rozhenko from Boraal II to Vacca VI. In her report, she questioned the inconsistent application of the Prime Directive by Starfleet, and by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in particular. (SCE eBook: Fables of the Prime Directive)

After several years, she was given her first shipboard assignment, joining the crew of the USS da Vinci. Her first away mission was at planet Ligon II, where the SCE crew was assigned to repair an orbital station. Abramowitz found it a challenge mediating between the Starfleet crew and the highly ritualized Ligonian culture. (CoE eBook: Turn the Page)

As P8 Blue had also also taken part in the Ligon II mission, presumably after she had joined the da Vinci in SCE eBook: War Stories, Book 2, and as Abramowitz was already part of the crew in that story, this likely puts her assignment to the da Vinci in early to mid 2374.

In early 2376, Abramowitz was vital in the success of the mission to planet Eerlik, when she theorized the computer-dependent society didn't have an advanced computer security cryptography. (SCE eBook: Fatal Error)

A few weeks later, Abramowitz served as a liaison between the da Vinci and the Tholians when they were assigned to begin salvage operations to rescue the USS Defiant from Tholian space. (SCE eBooks: Interphase, Part One, Interphase, Part Two

Following the near-destruction of the da Vinci at Galvan VI, Abramowitz planned to attend a professional conference on Caliph IX, and met a man named Ian aboard her transport, the Lionarti, with whom she shared a mutual attraction. However, her plans were changed when her rival Martin Mansur was arrested for murder on planet Vrinda, and she was called upon to investigate. Following the resolution of that situation, Abramowitz travelled to Pacifica to meet up again with Ian. (SCE eBook: Age of Unreason)

In October, Abramowitz was part of a covert mission to pre-warp planet Teneb, along with Commander Sonya Gomez, Crewman Stevens, and deputy security chief Vance Hawkins, to recover a crashed Federation probe. Abramowitz was captured by natives and nearly executed before being saved by Hawkins. The two began a romantic relationship shortly thereafter. (SCE eBook: Failsafe)


Abramowitz had a special fondness for Sinnravian drad music, much to the annoyance of her cabin mate, P8 Blue. (SCE eBook: Cold Fusion)
