Third in the second batch of Galaxy-class starships, the Nogura is a highly prestigious posting. Only the finest officers in the fleet are selected to serve on the Nogura. Together, the crew will experience situations that no crew in Starfleet could ever imagine. Despite their trials and tribulations, the crew – veteran and rookie alike – will become the finest that Starfleet has ever seen.
Below is a listing of personnel assigned to the Nogura at present.
PLAYER CONTROLLED CHARACTERS
CAPTAIN SEBASTIAN FARRELL
With a keen intellect and an eye for the unexpected, Sebastian forged a reputation as an effective combat leader during the latter stages of the Cardassian Border conflict, earning himself a promotion and command of the Nogura. Ruthless and calculating with a keen strategic eye, Farrell is a strong willed man with an air of authority that comes with being a natural born leader. He is proud to be commander of the Nogura and will stop at nothing to forge the finest crew Starfleet has seen.
LT. COMMANDER ARIA WINTERS
Initially serving as a science officer prior to promotion, Aria has built up knowledge of engineering and tactical as well during stints in the different departments throughout her career. Eventually she was guided onto the command track and while it was not a path she had originally considered, she has enjoyed the unique challenges it provides since being cherry picked by Captain Farrell to serve as his executive officer.
LT. COMMANDER ZAR
CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER
A highly experienced officer that has served in a variety of roles within the Operations division of Starfleet, Commander Zar is proud of his posting to the Nogura under Captain Farrell’s command. With a chequered past that threatens to haunt him, the Bolian finds himself with a chance to lay some demons to rest with his new assignment.
LIEUTENANT CAMERON LYNCH
CHIEF FLIGHT OPERATIONS OFFICER
Cameron Lynch is the typical pilot; confident to the point of cockiness. Despite his shorter than average height, this doesn’t seem to have affected his confidence, particularly when it comes to attracting guys. He’s good looking and is very aware of it. Although a little brash at times, his talent has shone through and seen him earn a place on the Nogura.
LIEUTENANT KYAN MACKENZIE
CHIEF TACTICAL OPERATIONS OFFICER
Kyan is a study in contrast. He is to the uninitiated, a child. But to those who know him, he is a fierce combat officer who would be better suited working among Klingons. While he is usually jovial and carefree, he is also possessed of a volatile temper than has seen many an adversary keeping the medical staff busy with new and inventive injuries to treat. Over the years though, Kyan has gone from perennial headache, to serviceable officer, to valuable asset. Like everyone else, he has his flaws, but can generally be counted on to accomplish whatever mission he is assigned.
LIEUTENANT NAYELI BEHAR
CHIEF SCIENCE OFFICER
Nayeli found herself unable to handle the drama that was her previous assignment. Everyone was at each other’s throats for one reason or another, and even through all her training, she couldn’t block out the anger. She wanted to travel the stars, go exploring, but not with an angry crew. So she allowed her name to be put out for other positions. One immediately came up, and she found that it was a type of ship she’d always dreamed of being on, one that would have so many newer systems for her to learn. But having just been posted a year ago, would they even take her? Nayeli put her name forward, on her own, to that ship, the Nogura, before any others could try to snatch her up. Slowly, she was packing her bags, because even if this ship didn’t take her, surely there was on out there that needed someone like her in their science department. But, as luck would have it, the Nogura accepted her.
LIEUTENANT CIARA BYRNE
A survivor of the Battle at Wolf 359, Ciara Byrne is a Counselor who has been hardened slightly by the Borg. She may have her own demons still lingering from the loss of friends and her first ship, but she is headstrong and confident in her own abilities. Ciara places the mental well-being of others before her own and is known to psychologically analyze everyone she comes into contact with whether they like it or not. She may have contemplated leaving the service after the battle against the Borg, but somehow her mother talked her out of it. Now she has returned to a starship after a year on Earth and she is ready for her do over on the Nogura.
NON-PLAYER BACKGROUND CHARACTERS
The following characters are non-player characters (NPCs) that serve as secondary or background characters designed to serve the mission or enhance character development and story telling opportunities for the crew. These characters are owned either by the designated player or by the Nogura itself. If listed as owned by a player, other players should contact that player before using them in their post.
