The back story for the character states that Natasha (Tasha) Yar (Ukrainian: Наташа "Таша" Яр), of Ukrainian descent, was born on Turkana IV, a colony that fell into chaos and eventually severed ties to the United Federation of Planets. Tasha learned to defend herself on the streets and avoid rape gang. She left Turkana IV at age 15, leaving her younger sister Ishara behind, and later attended Starfleet Academy.
After watching Yar cross a minefield to save a colonist, Jean-Luc Picard requested that she be assigned to his next command. She later becomes chief of security and chief tactical officer aboard the USS Enterprise-D, some time prior to the beginning of the series.
