U.S.S Sally Ride

    The Sally Ride 
Class: Intrepid

The U.S.S Sally Ride is a sister ship to the U.S.S Voyager which went missing not long ago.

  • Cool Starship: As you'd expect from a Federation starship, and an Intrepid class.
  • Everything Sensor: The Intrepid class has an impressive sensor suite. In fact it's one of the special traits of the class in game, reducing difficulty when using sensors by one.
  • Super Speed: The Sally Ride can achieve speeds up to Warp 9.975, faster than any other Starfleet vessel.

    Chief Mala Ren 
Race: Betazoid
Played by: Gina DeVivo

Chief Mala Ren, the Betazoid Engineering second-in-command (from Episode 12 The Orphan, pt.2).

  • Child Prodigy: Zhiv comments that she acts like a know-it-all, mostly because she...knows it all.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Remember the New Guy?: Introduced in Episode 12, having apparently been Zhiv's second-in-command the entire time. Rue, being the XO, also greets her with familiarity when they beam back aboard the ship in the following episode.
  • Wrench Wench

    Lt. Commander Veth Zhiv 
Race: Tellarite

Lieutenant Commander Veth Zhiv, the Tellarite Chief Engineer.

Starfleet NPCs

    Admiral Norwell Nash 
Race: Human

An Admiral of Starfleet and seemingly Captain Martinez's immediate superior.

  • Bad Boss: Played straight and subverted. He is absolutely a Bad Boss to Rue, but he at least acts considerably more lenient in his interactions with Captain Martinez.
  • Hate Sink
  • Noble Bigot with a Badge
  • Pet the Dog: In the first season finale, Nash reveals that Starfleet has been trying to co-opt the Sally Ride for military purposes, a move Nash has been fighting tooth and nail. He continues this through to the end of the episode by stationing them way out in deep space, away from the brewing conflict.


The Klingon Empire

Played by: Jason Charles Miller
Race: Klingon

A Klingon intelligence officer on a secret mission.

  • Number Two: He was second in command on his ship, the B'rel Bird of Prey IKS Maj'Ram.
  • Sole Survivor: He was the only person to survive the Cardassian attack on his vessel.

The Orion Syndicate

Race: Orion

The ex-captain of an Orion vessel, seeking out the Sally Ride after escaping a mutiny.

  • Bi the Way: Zazrit flirts with just about every crew member of the Sally Ride he encounters—including but not limited to Rue, Sage, and Martinez.
  • The Captain: Well, formerly. His third-in-command successfully led a mutiny against him, and he narrowly escaped with his life.
  • Immune to Mind Control: He is unaffected by Orion pheromones, which does not make him a popular guy.
  • Mr. Fanservice: His outfit is described as pretty skimpy, leaving plenty of his muscular chest exposed.


    Valia Farren 
Played by: Gina DeVivo
Race: El-Aurian

A mysterious "listener" who arrives to help the Sally Ride with a mysterious artifact.
