So does that mean if one gets lost you say, "Made the wrong turn at Epsilon"?

Heh. Sounds like the punchline to a bad College Frat joke.

Thrak is ready to go.

I've been watching some Star Trek to get in the mindset as well. Mostly Data episodes, although that's mainly because I'm also playing through Detroit: Become Human at the moment.

Sliding in stupidly late, but here we go!

Akellem RasName: Akellem Ras

Species: Bajoran

Physical Description: Ras’s face shows he’s well into middle age, but still appears healthy enough. He has a fair complexion and brown hair flecked with grey that usually hangs just below his ears. He normally wears a neatly trimmed goatee.

Personality: Ras is defined by two things: faith and science. Some may find the two contradictory, but he’ll always insist they aren’t. He’s a dedicated follower of the Prophets, and an equally dedicated man of science. He looks at the entire universe with a sense of wonder, and longs to learn as much as he can. He has no desire to advance toward command or anything like that; he’s a scientist, and that’s all he wants to be. He’s usually genial and friendly, although he can be known to talk far too much about topics that fascinate him but bore everyone else.

Environment (Origin): Isolated Colony (Golana, Bajoran colony)

Upbringing: Agriculture/Rural (Rebel)

Starfleet Academy: Sciences

Careerr: Veteran Officer

Roleplay Samples:

Contact with a truly alien species"You’re sure these are the correct coordinates?"

The ensign piloting the shuttle tapped his controls. "Confirmed, sir. The readings came from here."

Ras nodded at the ensign piloting the shuttle. Several days ago, long range sensors on the USS Apollo had detected unusual energy patterns at these coordinates. They’d particularly caught the scientist's eye when he noticed they appeared highly organized, suggesting a lifeform. The Apollo was on its way to an important diplomatic mission and couldn’t divert, but the captain had allowed his science officer to take a shuttle to investigate. Unfortunately, the shuttle wasn’t particularly fast, and the readings had stopped before they got there. All the craft’s sensors showed now was empty space.

Short on options, Ras opened a comm channel. "This is Lieutenant Akellem Ras of the Federation Starship Apollo, aboard the shuttlecraft Collins. We’re investigating energy patterns we detected here recently. We...come in peace." He cringed at the last line. He wasn’t exactly a first contact specialist. It probably didn’t matter, though. Even if there was some kind of undetectable lifeform here and it was sentient, there was a good chance it wouldn’t even be able to comprehend him. Unsurprisingly, there was no response. "I’m going to try retransmitting the message with a carrier wave mimicking the frequency of the energy patterns we detected. It’s a long shot, but if anything’s out there that might get their attention." Suiting action to words, the Bajoran tapped a series of controls on his console.

Almost instantly, Ras felt a powerful...a powerful something. For a moment, he had a splitting headache, like someone had taken a phaser drill to his skull. Then, information appeared in his memory like files downloaded to a computer. The energy patterns they had detected were indeed lifeforms, a race called the Veristitalians, non-corporeal space dwellers. There was more, too. Ras found he knew about their biology, culture, history, and more. Knowledge that would have taken years to study had just been dropped into his memory somehow. As he tried to make sense of it all, he noticed an indicator on his console blinking, indicating a message had been received, text only. He tapped it, and words appeared on the screen: “We come in peace.”



Had to take commandRas coughed as smoke filled the bridge, momentarily overwhelming the environmental systems. The Apollo was locked in combat with Cardassians in the Cestus system, and the battle wasn’t going well. The Ambassador class starship had found itself fighting two Galor class warships by itself. They’d managed to destroy one but taken heavy damage in the process. Their shields were down, and the second vessel had just delivered a devastating barrage to the dorsal surface of the saucer section. "Hull breach, decks three through six!" The voice of their engineering officer, a Tellerite woman, sounded through the comm system. " Emergency forcefields online, but I don’t know how long they’ll hold." No one responded, and Ras looked down from his science station on the aft bulkhead. An overhead plasma conduit had burst in the center of the bridge. The captain and first officer were both down, either unconscious or worse. The tactical officer was also wounded, and a terrified looking ensign had taken his place. Ras’s hand ran over the Lieutenant Commander’s pips on his collar as he realized he was the senior officer left standing.

The Bajoran stood and slapped his combadge, walking over toward the engineering console and hoping he looked and sounded more confident than he felt. "This is the bridge," he said, looking at the damage report displayed on the screen, "Evacuate sections twelve through nineteen on decks three to six and seal them off. Medical team to the bridge." With a deep gulp, he stepped down and stood in the center of the bridge, trying not to be unnerved by the captain's body slumped in his chair.

"Helm, bring us about and present the ventral surface to the enemy. We can’t take another hit on the dorsal hull. Engineering, I need shields, whatever you can manage. Focus on the forward dorsal quarter. Tactical, concentrate whatever fire you can bring to bear on their weapons array." Everyone did as ordered, and the starfield on the viewscreen swung as the ship maneuvered. The Cardassian ship, showing scars of its own, dropped into view, clearly eager to finish off its prey. Red phaser beams lanced out struck the alien hull, sending up little gouts of flame. Ras held his breath, waiting. Suddenly, explosions ripped through the Galor’s forward hull before the ship went dark, sending up a cheer from the Apollo’s crew. "Send out a signal to command," he said, with obvious strain in his voice. "Tell them we need reinforcements out here ASAP."



Life isn't fairEnsign Akellem Ras stood nervously at attention, waiting to meet his new CO. He still couldn’t believe his luck. Right out of the Academy, he’d been assignment to a research post at the prestigious Daystrom Institute. Many people waited years for an opportunity like this! The doors opened and in walked Commander Thlessia zh’Teriis, chair of the Institute's Astrophysics division. "Ensign. Welcome to the Daystrom Institute. Report for duty in laboratory seven at 0800 hours tomorrow. Dismissed."

Ras tried to hide his surprise at her curt tone. Andorians didn’t exactly have a reputation for being friendly, after all. "Ma’am, may I ask a question?"

She sighed. "A brief one, Ensign."

"Why was I chosen for this assignment? I studied astrophysics at the Academy, but so did plenty of other cadets. Why me?"

"You want the truth, Ensign?" He nodded. "There are a lot of people in the Federation who don’t care for our hands off approach to the Bajoran situation. Your appointment here is considered...appropriate to some. "
Ras frowned. " So...it’s just because I’m Bajoran?"

Her face softened. "Your scores at the Academy were quite good, but frankly...yes."

Ras, troubled, left without another word.
