for an assignment, Sarah stayed on Alcar under the care of Alexandria's
brother and sister-in-law who are the Rulers of Alcar, Princes Consort

live on Alcar until she learned her guardian was pregnant and in
need of a trusted care taker. the situations on Alcar demanded that

children and was eager to repay Alexandria's care volunteered for
the job. She moved to The USS Ark Royal where Alexandria is in command.
