Remus Yue-chung Lee
Role: Commanding Officer
The ship captain of USS
. A talented, if immature, officer who earned his command fighting the Borg at Vega IX and has risen through the ranks since. Although his unprofessional manner concerns his superiors, his willingness to push the envelope for other's sakes endears him to both Starfleet Command and his crew.
Kay Jasmine Taylor
Role: Executive Officer
Rational and composed, Kay and Remus have served together for the majority of the latter's captaincy. She commands the
whenever Remus is away from the ship, and serves in a "Team Mom" role to the
's crew. Her predecessor died in the line of duty, so she feels an added need to ensure the lives of those aboard
Drevis Indoril Nethri
Role: Chief Tactical Officer
A mysterious alien from way beyond Federation borders, Drevis has a very easy-going attitude and makes friends among the ship's crew easily. However, underneath his sparkling appearance is a whole mess of contradictory stories and impressions which makes pinning down his true past very hard to do.
Role: Security Chief
A defector from the Mirror Universe, Aranea is the mirror counterpart of an Orion crime lord. Her sweet demeanor belies an incredibly tragic past and a sadistic streak which frightens even hardened warriors. She maintains a professional relationship with the rest of
's senior crew, but would like a companion to keep her company on a cold night.
Role: Assault Squad Chief
Age: 9 months
Gruff and taciturn like the rest of his species, Vorat'kax finds himself at odds with the less disciplined and more relaxed atmosphere of the Federation. When he's not fighting, he's always seen tweaking something military-related in order to make him a more efficient fighter. The closest thing he has to leisure is talking combat philosophies with Thot, the Breen deserter.
Role: Chief Ground Warfare Specialist
Among the myriad aliens serving aboard
, Thot is the most reclusive member of the crew. Thot is reluctant to reveal his non-duty activities or strike up conversations with the non-Breen on the
, with his closest non-Breen friend being the Jem'Hadar Vorat'kax.
Role: Chief Engineer
A typical Vulcan with the typical Vulcan flair for logical thought and emotionless interactions, T'Shannat exemplifies the miracle worker engineer with her no-nonsense efficient engineering prowess. She is the go-to girl for all things engineering or logic-based, and sometimes joins the occasional girls' night out organized by Kay.
Role: Chief of Operations
Moody, dour, and a little unsettling, the Cardassian Chief of Operations of
is a wunderkind amongst the post-Dominion War Cardassian generation. He is more comfortable hacking into a database than hobnobbing with superior officers, though he will help the
out of sticky situations.
Ten of Twenty-Five
Role: Chief Sensors Officer
Species: Liberated Borg Human
Formerly Sabrina Honda, Ten of Twenty-Five is haunted by her relatively brief imprisonment in the Borg Collective, showing the occasional bout of self-doubt and fear. However, she is still capable of acting decisively and confidently in her duties, particularly in the company of her friends.
Role: Chief Systems Engineer
An android first activated ninety years into the future, R-66Y served in the 29th century Temporal Starfleet before time shenanigans put him on the
in 2409. He is programmed to follow the Temporal Prime Directive and Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, but he still finds time to interact with the crew on a friendly basis, despite lacking developed emotional programming.
Role: Chief Technician
The only sane cat amongst the
's crew, relatively speaking, Newa tolerates Remus' unprofessionalism the least, but she acknowledges his investment in the survival of his crew. She and other members of the senior crew her age get together often for shindigs.
Role: Chief Quartermaster
A Talaxian trader Lee picked up during his expedition to the Delta Quadrant, Lee saw enough potential in him to get him trained at Starfleet Academy and then assigned to the
. An honest and congenial officer, but lacks the concept of personal space or privacy. This leads to hijinks.
Role: Chief Science Officer
Kira is a member of a Klingon family on the Federation side of the Klingon border, and thus less sympathetic to the Klingon Empire than many Klingons her age. She possesses a fiery temperament and is not above using verbal abuse to get her point across. She has a profound loyalty to the ship and its crew, which leads to very frank words when she believes their well-being is being affected.
Four of Thirteen
Role: Chief Medical Officer
Species: Liberated Borg Human
The drone formerly known as Edmund Tadakatsu Honda was a survivor of the Federation massacre at Wolf 359. He still has an aura of Borg assimilation hanging around him like an albatross, but sometimes he is able to warm up emotionally, especially in proximity to his granddaughter, Sabrina Honda.
Role: Senior Biochemist
Twimek is a former resistance fighter who has a debt to pay to Remus and is paying it off by serving aboard
. He is a trustworthy and dependable person who can be counted on to offer medical knowledge on the many species which inhabit the regions of space in and around the Federation.
Role: Senior Research Lab Scientist
Described by her colleagues at the Romulan Ministry of Science as "bubbly" and "perky", Liviana is one of the foremost scientific minds in the service of the Romulans. She is serving aboard the
as part of an effort to improve relations between the Romulans and the Federation.
Role: Senior Counselor
A demure and unassuming member of the
crew, Jhamyn is nonetheless essential in her role of healing the emotional wounds which the crew often encounters, and sometimes even inflicts on each other. She is someone that even enemies of the Federation consider a calming presence.
Role: Senior Geologist
Considered young by Voth standards, Nelen is a Voth defector who now serves on the
. He is an idealistic and open-minded scientist who believes the pursuit of knowledge should benefit all species. His greatest challenge is adapting to the less advanced systems of the Federation, but he does enjoy the challenge.
Role: Senior Gravimetric Scientist
Age: Unknown (40's?)
A member of the Hierarchy who Lee asked to join his ship in no small part due to his name. He is still a capable officer with many contributions to offer to the
, but sometimes unsavory things happen, and he happens to be in the vicinity, which makes things a little suspect. A little more amoral than most people, and even slightly beyond Hierarchy acceptance.
