Notes of Interest
Tybal was raised traditionally on Vulcan and elected to pursue a commission with Starfleet rather than to get married. Her father, S'Claulan, is a retired Starfleet officer and had imparted his training from his career to her from when she was young. By the age of 30, she had become a master of three powerful Vulcan martial arts, Ke-Tarya, V'Shan and ponn'Ifla, under the tutelage of her father. Building upon her training in martial arts, she applied to Starfleet Academy and was accepted. Her first assignment upon completion of the Academy was to the USS Southern Cross in the Gateway Sector.

S'Claulan is one of the chief proponents of an alternative way of life on Vulcan centered around strict adherence to the principles in ponn'Ifla rather than following the Way of Surak or any of the other more thought-based logical practices for control and discipline. Followers of ponn'Ifla are a small minority of the Vulcan race.

Administrative Note
Tybal was issued a citation for misguided investigative tactics and a false charge being filed against a fellow officer. The officer, Lt. Cmdr. Paige Reagan, was exonerated when the prosecutor refused to proceed with a general court martial upon discovering that the charges were concocted in the course of an espionage investigation.
