A compact listing is provided in a departmental listing of the crew.
Eiwan is one of very few Himpanwei to leave their home world. Her name means 'wanderer', a name she earned as a child exploring the forests around her home colony. She works constantly and always has a padd at her fingertips.
Gero Ib joined Starfleet Academy at the age of 18. He specialized as a a science officer. As a believer in the prophets, Gero Ib specialized in spacial anomolies and astronomy in order to study wormholes. While in the Academy, Gero also studied a bit of xenobiology. After serving a few years in the Alpha Quadrant, Gero found his way to the Delta Quadrant in order to study the Gerosh wormhole. His goal for studying the wormhole is to figure out if the wormholes are all conduits which are used by the prophets.
It could be a part of his duties along with studying the star, maybe comets every now and then and the wormhole itself. Would you prefer him getting quarters with a view of the wormhole by begging at the Quartermasters office, winning it in a card game, having a girlfriend whose quarters have a view or practically living in a bar with the view? I'd like to give him an intro that shows his motivation, gives other players time to join so that I can populate a storyline with this character.
Only there can a traveler find the perfect mix of hot beverages and stories. Oh and don't forget to pet the local furry felinesque creature who inhabits the store.
Age: 27 Years
Height: 5 Ft 11
Birthdate: 9th December 2390
Birthplace: Gamma V
Hair Colour: Brown
Eye Colour: Gray
Skin Colour: Orange – Brown
Kal is around average height, his skin is the usual Kazon orangebrown and his ridges are very distinct. The usual clumping hair is frequently shaved in order to look more like the Borg but it grows back so quickly that he usually has clumps surrounded by bald patches. He has a scar down his face caused by a drone that had tossed him against a wall during one of his assimilation attempts.
Kal, or Four of Six, is driven by worship for the Borg and an unsatisfied desire to be “worthy” of assimilation. His life has been filled with loss and he therefore tends to avoid getting close to anyone for fear of losing them, he fears he will be hurt again, he therefore tends to be quiet and isolated though he feels a constant, agonising loneliness and a longing for the connection with other people that he denies himself. Kal’s only real desire in life is to serve the Borg collective, this desire has, over several years of failure developed into a mania. Kal possesses the recklessness that so often comes with desperation, he is unstable, dangerous and single minded. He thinks little as to how his actions may have consequences for other people, he is jealous of those people the Borg consider worthy of assimilation and does not understand why they resist the only thing that he wants, the sheer fact that Kal cannot be assimilated inducing him to want it all the more. He believes the Borg are perfect and is perhaps more delusional than the Collective itself in his belief that others should add to that perfection weather they want to or not.
Kal was orphaned at the age of 11 during one of the many civil wars frequent throughout Kazon space. He was taken care of by his older sister, Terra at first however she died in a bomb raid when Kal was 16. Grief stricken he left the system, as a stowaway on a Federation ship that had docked on Gamma V, attempting to negotiate a peace.
Once arriving in federation space Kal he trained as a xenobiologist. His research lead him to the Borg and he slowly became obsessed, he had lost everyone that he had ever cared about and had spent most of his life grieving and alone, the idea of the Collective of trillions thus appealed to his deep loneliness.
At the age of 22 Kal left federation space in a small research shuttle and headed for Borg space where he tried to get assimilated, unfortunately for him the shuttle was ignored, and in spite of sending several communications he too was ignored. He later learned that the Borg did not assimilate single individuals and so he made sure to find his way onto various ships headed into Borg space, hoping that one of them would be attacked. After several years of trying one of them was but the Borg left him! They assimilated what they wanted of the ship and most of the people, and then left him, alone in the empty ship. He would have died had it not been for the DFA ship that received his distress call because the Borg had left the ship without power.
Further research explained why Kal was left, the Kazon are considered by the Collective as “unworthy of assimilation”. In his years of attempted assimilation he had developed an attitude akin to worship for the Borg and he was desperate to serve them, and so this information devastated him, if indeed he was not already mad then this drove him into true insanity. From that day forward Kal stalked the Collective tirelessly, he fell into even deeper isolation as he wandered the quadrant in his shuttle, searching for something, for anything that would make the Collective consider him for assimilation. As the years went by and his attempts were met with constant failures Kal became more and more desperate and more and more driven. At the age of 27 Kal, now going by the Borg designation “Four of Six, which he had adopted for himself heard rumours of a cube in the vicinity of the Sentinel Station where he headed to investigate.
An officer of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, her most recent posting was starbase construction along the Kzinti frontier. She is the eldest daughter of a Marine officer. Named after her maternal Klingon grandmother, the only non-Human in her ancestry. She has no standing in Klingon society; belongs to no house.
Lestat’s family tree can be traced back to ancient Russian nobility. Since then, however, much has changed. Somewhere along the line, his ancestors moved to Paris, France, where Lestat grew up. He lived a fairly privileged life as a result of the circles his parents socialized and worked in. His father was a mid level aide to several Federation Presidents and his mother was a political analyst. They were in a constant struggle with their finances to keep up appearances. As a young child he was allowed to attend dinners where adults were constantly discussing Federation politics. He went to private school with other kids from privileged families from all over the galaxy whom were inevitably involved with the Federation in some way or another. Lestat showed a high level of intelligence from a very young age. He was always characterized as being very charismatic, competitive and determined. At the age of 18, he applied and was accepted to Starfleet Academy. He completed his studies and graduated with honors with a specialization in Terrestrial Affairs.
His first assignment was to Starfleet Headquarters in San Francisco. There he became interested in the inner workings of the Federation and Starfleet. He also continued his studies in Terrestrial affairs. Soon, he became well known and respected for his knowledge in this area.
It was in San Francisco where he met his wife, Sonya Martinez. They made quite a couple and were very popular on the young social scene. Lestat and Sonya dated for a short time, when she unexpectedly became pregnant. As a result, they married quickly and shortly thereafter, a son was born. Unfortunately, the baby suffered complications at birth and died just a few weeks later. This experience affected Lestat in many deep ways as well as his relationship with Sonya. It was almost as if his emotional side shut down. He dealt with his pain by focusing on his work and career advancement. Lestat spent the next seven years traveling the galaxy studying alien races and sharing his information with the highest levels of Starfleet and the Federation. Sonya traveled with him when she could, but most of the times she was left at some lonely outpost while he worked. Ultimately, he was forced to leave this work because Sonya contracted Correllium fever, and fell into a deep coma. After countless doctor examinations, it was concluded that nothing could be done for her. Sonya seemed condemned to spend the rest of her life in a catatonic state.
Lestat moved back to Earth and ensured that Sonya has the best care money could afford, but there was not much that could be done for her. Back on Earth, he was assigned as a special advisor on Terrestrial Affairs to the Federation Council. It was during this period of his life when things changed dramatically for Lestat. Councilman Truman Alkobar took a special liking to Lestat, and soon took him under his wing. Two years later, Lestat was Alkobar’s unofficial right hand man. During this time, the Federation Council decided that something had to be done to keep tighter control of places far from their reach. The Council established the Office of the Federation Liaison, which would act as the right hand of the Council. The Liaisons would answer solely to the members of the Council, and had the highest level of security clearance. They were declared to be totally outside the regular chain of command at Starfleet.
Alkobar immediately began preparing Lestat for this position. In the year that followed, Alkobar introduced Lestat to the most powerful people in the galaxy. He was able to make connections that most people didn’t even know existed. When the Federation Liaison position to the Delta Quadrant became available, Alkobar quickly had Lestat appointed. Soon he was traveling throughout the Delta Quadrant basically being the eyes and ears of the Council. Lestat made many friends and even more enemies, however, he was able to attain more power than he ever thought possible. He had become a master of manipulation, intrigue and deceit. What made him so successful was that he was able to do it all with incredible charm and class. Through payoffs, kickbacks and backroom deals at the highest levels, Lestat quickly amassed a small personal fortune. His lifestyle was one of extreme wealth, which was explained as family inheritance. At the same time, Sonya, who had been traveling with him in her catatonic state, suddenly came out of her coma. For reasons unknown to the doctors that examined her, she made a complete recovery. Unfortunately, the same could not be said about their relationship. During the years of Sonya’s coma, Lestat had changed tremendously and he had gained a reputation as a man with many beautiful lady friends. However, the two did initially try to rekindle their relationship and a daughter, Alexa, was born. She was the love of his life and reason for living. He would do anything for her and no matter how busy he was, always put aside time daily to dedicate to her, even if it was over a subspace channel. Because of Alexa and to once again maintain appearances, Sonya and Lestat reached an agreement to remain married. She would play the role of the beautiful, perfect wife and he would grant her a very generous allowance to maintain the luxurious lifestyle she had quickly come to embrace.
Tensions in the Delta Quadrant with Starfleet Command ultimately reached a breaking point and Lestat resigned his commission and returned to Earth with his family at the request of Councilman Alkobar. They settled into a beautiful chateau on the outskirts of Paris, France and he began work as a Special Envoy to the Federation Council. The next four years were filled with long, classified trips to parts unknown dealing with all sorts of matters of importance to the Federation and especially Councilman Alkobar.
Then finally, an opportunity arose for Councilman Alkobar and his supporters to push for a stronger, more impactful presence in the Delta Quadrant that wasn’t represented by Starfleet. A large investment was made to setup a full Federation delegation in the Delta Quadrant that would act as an extension of the Council itself. The pieces had finally aligned where Alkobar was able to appoint the person for the job, and it was Lestat who became the first official Federation Ambassador to the Delta Quadrant.
Lestat sadly left Alexa behind, but understood that safety was going to be an issue and Sonya was certainly not willing to give up her life and travel to the far reaches of the galaxy again. For the next year, Lestat traveled through the Delta Quadrant on a newly retrofitted Armitage Class starship that the Council had taken from Starfleet and gifted to the Ambassador. His primary mission was to make as many connections as he could and show that the Federation was taking a new direction with the Delta Quadrant, as well as making significant investments, which were obvious just from the look of the SS Libratore. Now it was time to officially setup roots and open an Embassy. The decision of where it should be was easy to make. Sentinel Station was at the doorway of the Geroch Wormole and presented so many opportunities, including the Hope One Dyson Sphere.
Ariana had not set out to be as adventerous as she has become. She was content to study plate tectonics and stay aboard ship. Her field of choice was chosen so that she didn't have the pressure of away missions and fast moving decisions. She could stop for tea, and not worry about changes in her research; rocks do not move that quickly.
Her experiance aboard Cromwell changed that. Forced into action by circumstance, she proved she could rise to the occasion on her initial missions which included time travel and fighting Borg. She did not have the confidence though, and put her resignation in at the completion of her cadet tour. Captain Sesgaard refused to accept it at that time, instead challenging her to sing one song, and he would then accept her resignation. He knew she had been a singer when she was young, and the one song he requested told of taking chances. As she sang that song, she realized what he had done, and what she had done, and withdrew her resignation.
Knowing she needed to go out and explore on her own, Ariana requested Duty at the Dyson sphere, and was granted DFA Exchange officer status to serve at Sentinel Station.
Ariana is settling into Sentinel Station. She has encountered a murder victim, and worked along side her friend, Eiwan, the Starfleet chief engineer of Sentinel Station, on investigating cyber attacks on the Sentinel stations computers. She investigated volcanic activity within the Dyson sphere, which proved to be a faulty piece of machinery transporting building materials to the sphere.
Ariana has worked with the Lacosians on repair of a faulty geo wormhole transporter, explored the catacombs with an ecologist to ascertain the Lacosian position regarding the Kharian. (Negotiations were way above her pay grade and she slipped out of those).
Studying dust particles for Lt Hondrick. Just heard they would be heading to a Brown star and applied for a berth to serve aboard the ship.
Primary Characters (PCs) are the equivalent of the lead cast in a television series. They appear frequently in storylines and can always be tagged in posts.
Secondary Characters (SCs) are supporting cast. They appear occassionally in storylines, usually when a particular skill is required. These characters should only be tagged with the permission of their player. If a Primary Character can fulfill the needs of the story, it should be tagged preferentially to Secondary Characters.
Guest Characters appear rarely. They are a prestige role, such as a Fleet Admiral or a Klingon Chancellor. These characters must be tagged only with the permission of their player.
Non-Player Characters (NPCs) are recurring background characters. They provide consistency from story to story as familiar names. Any player may write for an NPC but the CO should be informed when a player does so.
