Captain Andrew Baxter was an inconspicuous low-level officer aboard the USS Secondprize. He
worked his way, unnoticed, through the ranks for ten years, accepting the inevitable fact that he
wouldn't amount to much. He has a low self esteem and questionable leadership skills. Now that
he's back in the Alpha Quadrant, he's determined to prove that him and his crew are competent
enough to crew a starship. Are you bold enough to enter the Captain's Ranty Room and
discover Captain Baxter's opinion on all sorts of unimportant mumbo-jumbo?
Commander David Conway is a moody, cranky officer that wants only one thing-- power. He's
kissed up to his superior officers to make it to Commander. Becoming Baxter's X.O. has been
something of a road-block, though, since he hates the captain's guts. He does, however, love
coffee, in all its various and splendid forms.
Ops Chief and Third-in-Command Kristen Larkin was a helm officer aboard the Secondprize. A
clumsily-assembled android with an uncertain past, Lt. Commander Larkin is fascinated with
penguins and has a vast database capable of embarrassing her less knowledgeable superiors.
She's recently been made aware that Lt. Commander Chris Richards is her, well, "Mommie," and
though her, uh, "Daddie," Private Chris Henricks, is back in the Delta Quadrant, she's got an
inkling that she'll bump into the human Kristen Larkin now that she's back in the Alpha Quadrant.
Chief Tactical/Security officer Lieutenant J'hana is obsessed with having an honorable death. One
of the few Andorians in Starfleet, she is a very capable warrior who insists on throwing herself in
front of phaser fire for a commanding officer every chance she gets.
Most Betazoids train for years to focus their telepathic abilities so they can become useful parts
of society and help people. Science Officer Lt. Ariel Tilleran just did it because she's nosey.
Lt. Commander Christopher Richards isn't sure how or why he became part of Starfleet. His first
love was always art, and most consider him a better artist than engineer. He has a hard time with
emotional relationships, especially when it comes to dealing with his android daughter, Lt.
Commander Larkin, and the fact that he's due to be married in a few short months to...
Doctor Janice Browning really doesn't have the bedside manner necessary to be a doctor. She's
not a mean person--she tries to be friendly--she just has a short attention span and loves to eat.
And interestinlgy enough, she's always kept a great figure.
Counselor Kelly Peterman loves animals. She loves them so much she keeps a whole zoo-ful of
them in her quarters, much to the chagrin of the Explorer's crew. Probably the only thing that
keeps her pets from being shoved out an airlock is that she's the Captain's wife.
Helmsman Lt. Zachary Ford thinks he has a way with women. Most people would disagree.
Lazy, crabby, and hard to motivate, Lt. Megan Hartley is considered one of the less friendly
members of the Explorer. But people usually give her a wide berth, since she can spread their
atoms in an instant with the transporter.
Mr. Mirk is a blossoming telepath with darn good drink making skills. He's in charge of "The
Constellation Cafe," the Explorer's crew lounge.
Counselor Peterman's dog Charlie is a menace to humankind and the only thing J'hana fears. If
Charlie sets his sights on you, just watch out!
