    Danica Maris 

The main character of the story. Used to be an aspiring astronomer on Sanctuary Six, until three Void Angel fighters flew up to her window and blew up her quarters, with her inside. Fortunately, she was studying what appeared to be an M-class star, and by doing so became The Star Power.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her light sword can cut through a battleship hull.
  • Action Girl: She's a girl who's a superhero, in space.
  • All-Loving Hero: Enforced. The Zel Gux reveal that all the "tests" she went through were specifically designed to make sure any and all Star Power Sentinels are this before being welcomed to "the temple of steel."
  • Badass Boast: Said in glorious Tranquil Fury and combined with "The Reason You Suck" Speech and Kirk Summation to both the Evenians and Venebians.
    Star Centurion:"Go back to your armies, your barracks, your headquarters. Tell whoever told you that I was your adversary that they were right. As long as you commit senseless murder and refuse to listen to reason, I AM your enemy and I will defend those who cannot defend themselves from you."
  • Badass Bookworm: She uses actual astrophysics to track two "cloaked" Void Angel battleships.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: As the Star Power, she can actually talk in space, and people hear her.
  • Brought Down to Normal: She temporarily loses her powers in the second arc and has to use a star to recharge.
  • Crush Blush: Implied that's what kind of blush it was when she saw Burke in a tuxedo, who looks very classy, according to her friends. But, she appears to be angry at herself for the reaction.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Diving into a solar flare to recharge is seen as this.
  • Did Not See That Coming: Using Burke as a hostage didn't work out like she hoped.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's barefoot in her Star Power form.
  • The Fettered: She is strongly committed to a moral code. "Saving lives." Even if she has to put herself in mortal peril.
    • The one time she does take a life, it was to prevent a monstrous clone of herself from killing her friends. Even then, she's not happy about it.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: While she had little problem subjecting the Void Angels to their own hostage-taking standards, she is utterly confused as to the actions of the final "guardian" and its Secret Test of Character.
    Danica: "Was not killing you the only requirement? What's so hard about that?"
  • Good Is Not Soft: Especially in the most recent arc. Feeling betrayed when one of the four criminal houses blew up a "temple" where assassins are trained, after she and Galactic Defense had managed to subdue all the brainwashed agents, and the high-priest of the Religion of Evil was taken out, she goes to the man responsible and dangles him out the window at the top of a skyrise to show how pissed she is, and then starts blasting through the remaining criminal families, beating the stuffing out of their leaders and turning them over to Galactic Defense with hard evidence of their villainy, and when she hears about the corrupt Galactic Defense hit squad, that's when she gets nasty.
  • The Hero:
  • Heroic Second Wind:
  • Last of His Kind: Played straight at the start, but it's Zigzagged. There's another Star Sentinel out there somewhere, and he answered Mitch's distress call, anonymously by feeding energy to the Star power. ... and then it turns out that there's isn't another Star Power out there.
  • Light 'em Up: Her Star Power abilities are all light-based.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: She can generate a light-based shield. It works great against lasers. It's less effective against bullets and even less against missiles and explosives.
  • Misblamed: Both sides of the Green Vs Purple war have grossly misinterpreted her actions and officially consider her a top-priority enemy of the state.
    • The Evebians (green) have interpreted her immediate response to their distress call and attempt to aid in protecting the gate as a "distraction" that allowed their mortal enemy, the Venenian (purple) to backstab the defenders with their Scorpiax Tanks. None of the defenders survived to vouch for her character.
    • The Venenians, in their Scorpiax Tanks, believed she was trying to capture them, and would rather die than be interred, again, so they self-destructed. None of them survived to learn of their error, and their comrades have been informed by the high command that this was deliberate.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Her response to the Evebian distress call has made her a top-priority kill-on-sight target for both sides of the Green vs Purple war.
  • The Nicknamer: She names everything, like Mitch (the Star Power), and Little Ren (her telescope).
  • Pungeon Master: She's quite fond of puns.
  • He's Back: Well, She's Back!
  • Shut Up, Kirk!: On the receiving end. When she finds herself caught between the two sides of the Green Vs Purple war, and tries to get them to talk out their differences, their response to "we can talk," after she shields both sides from each others attacks is both sides blasting at her.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: She tried this with The Countess. Didn't work, but not for lack of trying.
  • Talk to the Fist: Is quite fond of this, especially to Void Angels who think Talking Is a Free Action when calling out their war cry.
    "Hail to the Voi...." (SMACK!)
  • Technical Pacifist: Her combat efforts are purely non-lethal, at least her intentions are.
  • These Hands Have Killed: Briefly, as part of a Heroic BSoD, until she realized that she "killed" a non-sentient robot drone.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: More justified than most examples, as her sword is an energy construct. Still, rather than hacking off the Scorpiax Tank's tail, she throws the "sword" through the "stinger" area, causing it to smash to pieces.
  • Title Character: As the Star Power, the story is named after her.
  • Translator Microbes: Being a star power sentinel gives her the ability to understand most any spoken language. Such as the Zicuri's native tongue. And also speak back to them, despite the fact that she speaks "Galactic Common", as noticed by Dr. Brightman.
  • You Monster!: To Void Archon.



The embodiment of the Star Power itself.

    Grex Obil 

Danica's closest friend, and a top soldier amongst the Galactic Defense Security aboard Sanctuary Six,

    Kaylo Durin 

One of Grex's colleagues.

    Shi Lalis 

One of Sanctuary Six's security personnel, who normally works directly under The Chief, controlling the flow of information.

  • Actual Pacifist: It's a species trait. They don't fight amongst themselves or anyone else. Only a true brute would attack one of them. Says a lot about Black Hole Bill that he goes out of his way to try and kill them, especially when it's against his best interests to do so.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She is quite fond of a certain freighter captain of her own species who frequently visits Sanctuary Six and was almost killed by Black Hole Bill. Sadly, said freighter captain does not feel the same way towards her.
  • Mission Control: Serves this role on Sanctuary Six. She monitors numerous security systems and relays the situation to The Chief who then relays orders through her.
  • The Pilot: She was flying the science vessel that took Danica to the Pleenex system.



    Void Angels 

Known as the scum of the universe, this gang of criminals rank amongst the worst villains in the story.

    Bug, Skyle, and Burke 

  • Arrested for Heroism: Combined with No Good Deed Goes Unpunished. Burke winds up being the one arrested when Galactic Defense arrives because his damaged star-fighter can't use its stealth system while Bug and Skyle run away and engage theirs. His good behaviour earns him an early release, however, and he essentially becomes one of the heroes after.
  • Ax-Crazy: Skyle is becoming increasingly violent and unstable with every update.
  • Did Not Think This Through: Skyle admits that the hostage taking was "improvising."
  • Frame-Up: A stunner blasted Burke wakes up in Hymn's garden, whiskey flask in one hand, stun blaster in the other, accused by Hymn's choir of blasting them in a drunken haze, and having a very, very hard time getting his mouth and vocal cords to work properly.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Burke stuns the cast by turning up in a sharp tux, even causing Danica to blush.
  • Heel–Face Turn: As of the most recent arc, Burke has completely decided to quit being a Void Angel and is trying to redeem himself, to the point where he's no longer associating himself with Bug and Skyle. Though Danica has her reservations at first, she sincerely thanks him for helping her save Beena and actually putting in the work to turn his life around.
  • I Lied: They're considering killing their hostage anyway.
  • In the Back: Their preferred method of attacking the Star Power.
  • I Was Never Here: A truly horrific and villainous version. Skyle threatens a freighter captain, which he coerced to smuggle him into the same Star System where Danica is at the point of a gun, to never reveal they stowed away... or else.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: They may not have the same level of resources or planning, but Skyle's fixation on Danica makes them at least as dangerous as previous antagonists, like The Countess, or Black Hole Bill.
  • Perpetual Poverty: They apparently used up most, if not all, of their pay to sub-contract Black Hole Bill when they failed to kill Danica, and getting new ships.
  • Proof by Examples: Initially, they justified the hunt for Danica (The star power) among themselves by the supposition that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" noting their experiences with Void Archangel and The Countess. Burke has come to realize this is not true after she saved his life from the blasters of his team-mate, Skyle, who tried to fire through him to get at her.
    • Turns out Burke has a reason for this initial attitude. He later explains to Grex that he used to work for Galactic Defense, and his superior officer was corrupt and was involved in illegal goods smuggling.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: Pretty much this for multiple arcs. Burke excluded after his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Ramming Always Works: Burke slams his ship into Skyle's to throw off the latter's aim, protecting Danica and Beena, not to mention his other team-mate, Bug.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Skyle gives one of these to Burke for being constantly shocked at Skyle's increasingly unstable behavior.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Skyle's absolutely fixated on killing Danica, for the infuriating crime of ... actually surviving each and every one of his unprovoked assaults.
  • Saying Too Much: Bordering on Too Dumb to Live. Skyle openly admits his involvement on attacking Danica, in a police station, without a lawyer present. Even if he wasn't saying it to Grex Obil, it's still a dangerously senselessly act which will have any defense attourney going "What Were You Thinking?".
  • The So-Called Coward: Skyle calls Burke a "spineless ape" because Burke called him out on trying to fire through him while going after Danica.
  • The Unfettered: Skyle is so fixated on killing Danica that he's willing to fire through his team-mates to get at her. He's also shown that he's completely willing to abandon anyone and anything, including his own safety to do so, and gets visibly grated when something makes him physically unable to act on this desire.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Skyle's response to being rescued from the Super Nova Dragon Lords is attacking the Galactic Defense officers who are rescuing him, AND shooting Danica in the back while she's covering their escape. THEN he gets mad at her for surviving that and keeping the Dragon Lords occupied.
  • Villainous Valor: With a dash of Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal. Burke, having had enough of Skyle's Jerkassery, points out which of the two void angel ships is carrying the hostage, Beena. More importantly Burke actually turns on Skyle, coming to Danica's defense.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: They manage to get the drop on Danica, but rather than simply shoot her and run away, they take one of her fellow galactic defense officers hostage, and fly off to the next planet on Danica's scavenger hunt with the promise of "you don't find us, we'll find you."

    Void Archangel 

The "leader" of the Void Angels. A particularly nasty sentient who has no regard for life, except his own.

  • Dirty Coward: Fled while his men were being slaughtered by The Countess.
  • Hypocrite: Lampshaded. He enforces an ironclad rule that failure is always punished by death, yet when he comes under attack, he runs away.
  • I Lied: Would have self-destructed his disabled battleships anyway, despite promising Danica to spare them, upon her surrender, if The Countess, as his employer, didn't order him to do otherwise. He ultimately does, or tries, as The Countess bears down upon him, just to spite Danica. Fortunately, Kaylo had already disarmed the bombs on the battleship at Sanctuary Six, the crippled warship parsecs away wasn't so lucky.
  • We Have Reserves: Treats his men, and ships as disposable tools.
  • You Have Failed Me: Has self-destruct bombs on all his ships that he detonates by remote when they fail in a mission. Most Void Angels claim to not know about this "feature" of their ships.

    The Countess / The Ninth Wormwhole / Nurak-Nor 

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: She can wrap her arms around her body like spaghetti around a soda straw.
  • Axe-Crazy: minus the axe, but.....
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Starts off like this. She first considers "bloodying her hands" beneath her, as a countess. As the story unfolds, this is ultimately subverted with extreme prejudice.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Whether it's from ambush, in a straight up swordfight, or hiring mercenaries, this is her first, preferred, and last option for any kind of encounter. Anything else is "cowardly" or "pity from the enemy."
  • Berserk Button: Just the mention of "Zel Gux" is enough for her to try and punch her way through a plate glass prison chamber window, and she almost succeeds.
  • Big Bad: For volume 1.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: She considers somebody coming to her aid an unforgivable insult. As is any form of negotiation that doesn't involve a fight to the death. Except for mercenaries being paid for their work.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She believes a civilization founded on ideals like love, compassion, and freedom is doomed to fall apart, and Polgar's offer of redemption leaves her stunned speechless.
  • Genocide from the Inside: She mass-murdered every other member of her species because they dared to choose to retreat and survive rather than die in a battle they were losing.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: If her court appointed therapist is correct, all her "hatred" of the Star Power Sentinels is borne of sheer jealousy that while she and her people abandoned their ideals, the Sentinels did not abandon theirs, no matter how bleak the situation got, and she's loathe to admit that she actually wants to be like them.
  • Honor Before Reason: For a certain definition of "honor." Scintillians don't retreat, don't negotiate, and don't offer or accept surrender. In fact, Scintillians don't stop fighting until they're dead, according to her anyway.
  • Just Between You and Me: When her Revenge Before Reason clashed with her Honor Before Reason because she found out that Danica knew nothing about the Star Power Sentinels or the Scintillians, she stopped trying to kill Danica long enough to tell her everything about their history so she could kill Danica without the "shame of bloodying her hands over an innocent."
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Thinks that all sentients are inherently evil incarnate, and only deserve being subjugated by force. Quincy Polgar calmly states that she's "projecting" and everything she's ranting about actually applies to herself.
  • Never My Fault: Blames "kindness and compassion" for the extinction of her race, completely ignoring her own megalomania and insane levels of Honor Before Reason, not to mention the fact that she's the one who ultimately pulled the switch.
  • No True Scotsman: Believes that she's the last "true" Scintillian during the 8th Wormhole because the other Scintillians all fled before certain annihilation, against her wishes and she had them killed for it. This is odd considering the Scintillians fled at least 7 times before. Makes one wonder where she got that mindset.
  • Overly Long Tongue: It reaches all the way to the floor. How does she talk without biting it off?
  • Principles Zealot: In the most horrifying way possible. She is absolutely committed to what she believes are "true" Scintillian principles, to the point that she killed the entire rest of her race for not following them.
  • Proof by Examples: Claims that The Federation and its civilization is doomed to become a despicable tyrannical organ because her people saw The Galactic Empire do the same thing "through timeless space."
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: To a truly horrific, twisted, and suicidal level.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Is fixated on eliminating every Star Powered Sentinel in existence, and avenging herself against an empire that doesn't even exist anymore. Even though the Scintillians are the ones who wronged the Sentinels in the first place, not the other way around.
  • Self-Made Orphan: She killed her own mother for "surrendering" despite her entire race being reduced to a handful of civilian ships.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Tells her story of the "Eighth Wormhole" and how The Galactic Empire was so corrupt that the citizens saw the Scintillians as saviors, claiming that The Galactic Empire was Not So Different from The Federation at its founding.


    Black Hole Bill 

A real nasty piece of work. A completely unscrupulous and ruthless bounty hunter, he will stop at nothing to complete his contract, regardless of how many he has to kill along the way. Heck, the higher his kill count, the better, as far as he's concerned.

  • Badass Longcoat:
  • Fantastic Racism: To everyone. There isn't a fantastic racial slur that goes unused.
  • The Gunslinger: Tries to invoke the classic definition of this.
  • I Gave My Word: A truly villainous version. There is just one rule he goes by, and that is "Black Hole Bill always gets the job done." Of course, he likes to leave a trail of corpses in his wake while doing so. He also tends to play fast and loose with with the interpretation, since he doesn't count it in case his client gets killed before he fulfills the contract.
  • Lack of Empathy: Doesn't care about anyone or anything that crosses his path.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Twice, and both times involve him going after Danica.
  • Nice Hat: A ten gallon hat to be precise.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivers one of these to one of his guards during his escape. Turns out the beating was not only completely unnecessary, but ultimately fatal.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has a truly epic and cathartic reaction when he finally gets his comeuppance.
  • The Sociopath: Fits every aspect of this.
  • This Is Going to Suck: Every time he gets taken down, he voices some form of this.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Would KILL a child, actually. Knowing full well the legal standing of Zori AI, he has one crushed to cover his tracks while walking away, whistling.
  • You Have Failed Me: Has a Zori AI controlled starship scrapped, while the AI is still installed, and on-line because it got ID'd by the Galactic Defense ship he escaped from, despite the fact that it was his own fault for enjoying himself beating a semi-conscious guard to death.


Took over the Super Nova Dragon Lords in a violent, and bloody coup when he learned they were planning on turning Black Hole Bill over to Galactic Defense.

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy:
  • Ass Kicking Equals Authority:
  • Berserk Button: Don't call him "Pork chops."
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's the first one to call out Black Hole Bill on shooting a bartender, with little to no provocation. He withdrew his objection when the bartender pushed a silent alarm summoning Galactic Defense, but still insists that The Supernova Dragon Lords don't intentionally target and attack "civilians".
  • Klingon Promotion:
  • Large and in Charge:
  • Large Ham: Ironic, considering his name is "Roar Boar."
  • More Dakka:
  • Punny Name: His name is Roar Boar, and he's a large ham.
    "My name is Roar Boar, not Whisper Pig."
  • Reality Ensues: Is under the impression that Galactic Defense would be just swept away by the Supernova Dragon Lords' sheer awesomeness. He's dealing with a well-organized military police force set up to deal with threats to galactic civilization, while he's in charge of a weapons-smuggling space biker gang. His crew surrender without a fight the moment Galactic Defense arrives in force.
  • The Starscream: To the previous leader of the Super Nova Dragon Lords.
  • Stuff Blowing Up:
  • War Is Glorious: Truly believes this.

    Dr. Hymn 
A music composer of great acclaim, who Dr. Brightman is a huge fan of. Turns out he's more than just merely an eccentric personality, and he's very interested in the Star Power for unknown reasons. Turns out he wants to create a new Star Power based on himself to create a transcendentally better singer. The second character to be arguably a supervillain in the comic, after The Countess, except in the vein of a Bond villain.

  • Affably Evil: Unfailingly polite, and also perfectly fine with murder and all sorts of shady stuff to achieve his aims.
  • Bad Boss: His response to any "imperfection" is to shoot the poor "imperfect" sod to death. No exceptions... and that's if he's calm and composed.
  • Big Bad: For the Star Power and the Choir of Dr. Hymn arc.
  • Broken Pedestal: For Dr. Brightman. She idolized him and his music, then she gets to see the man "on the other side of the curtain." She does not take the revelation well.
  • Fiction 500: In a more subdued fashion - while his estate isn't an outright planet, it is a terraformed asteroid, which is stated to be incredibly rare, meaning the process of actually terraforming it to the point of it having an atmosphere is presumably very expensive.
  • For Science!: His entire motivation has nothing to do with power or taking over the universe or anything of the sort. He just wants better people to improve his choir, which generally means cloning himself repeatedly and trying to improve the process in various ways, including adding Star Power's genetics to the mix.
  • Mad Scientist: Has hints of this. It doesn't help when he has people covertly collecting fluids from the showers on his estate for analysis.
    • Later, it's heavily implied that his entire choir are regular people effectively modified to be clones of himself. Though that's not quite right, as the people smuggling was actually to get access to genetics to add to the flash cloning process, which is how he created his assistant, Kerina. The flash-cloning process is attempted on genetics from Star Power herself, and, well, it is a disaster.
  • Narcissist: When speaking of "perfection," his template is... himself.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: For all intents and purposes, he is basically a completely normal human being with no notable fighting skills beyond being able to use a gun, with is intelligence, planning and reputation being his main assets. The real physical conflict in his story arc is the "Monstar Power" created from attempting to clone Star Power, while Hymn himself is easily subdued by Dr. Brightman of all people via Groin Attack.
  • Noodle Incident: His staff has supposedly faced a time where Dr. Hymn was forced to "endure imperfection" before. The incident, and response, has Kerina, his top attendant, terrified.
  • Tautological Templar: His pursuit of "perfection" in everything, especially music, is a grand and noble endeavor. As such, anything and everything he does to pursue that endeavor is, in his mind, beyond reproach. There is no way to convince him otherwise. Trying to do so is a very dangerous game.
  • You Have Failed Me: His response to an "imperfect" audition is to shoot the poor sod who didn't meet his expectations and then burn the body in a furnace.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: In public he is a famous and extremely talented composer and conductor. This reputation is not undeserved, but but he has darker eccentricities and habits not known to the wider universe, and his motives for his interest in the Star Power are mysterious and suspicious.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: The only person he sees as a person is himself. His staff, retainers, singers and acolytes are all just "tools" or "drafts" and "the golden rule of creation is to never get attached to your previous drafts." Because they're all clones of himself in some form, either pure clones or mixed. Every last one of them. Yes, including Kerina, his right-hand woman.

Supporting Characters.

    The Chief 

  • Deadpan Snarker: As he proves in his meeting with Quincy Polgar, he has a real biting sense of humor, and knows how to use it.
    "There's nothing I can do to stop you when you psi-cops put your mind to something."
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Is known only by his title as Chief of Security.
  • A Father to His Men: Treats his subordinates among the security staff like family. He does not take it well when harm befalls them, as Black Hole Bill found out.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he views "Old Tom's" kill order regarding Danica, and having Beena find out exactly what the old android's protocols, regulations, and triggers are, so Danica doesn't wind up running afoul of them.
  • Mildly Military: He has a fascination with military tactics, strategy and history. Serves him well as part of Galactic Defense, even on an astrophysics research station, Sanctuary Six.
  • Noodle Incident: He's somehow familiar with Burke.
  • Oh, Crap!: His expression finally changes from a perpetual scowl when he's informed "The traveler is coming."
  • Oral Fixation: It's a species trait. Those chew sticks are used for stress relief, and his job's been very stressful since the fateful day when three Void Angel fighters arrived and shot at Danica's quarters.
  • Perpetual Frowner: It's not known if he, or his species can even smile.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Actually thanked Danica for saving lives when she disobeyed his orders and revealed herself as The Star Power publicly, thwarting Black Hole Bill's rampage in the process.
  • Secret Keeper: Initially was one of the only three people who knew about The Star Power.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Dr. Brightman originally, regarding access to The Star Power. Mostly averted as the series goes along although some friction still remains.
  • You Monster!: To Black Hole Bill, though the latter never heard it.

    Dr. Brightman 
Danica's employer as part of the research team at Sanctuary Six. Later becomes her mentor and confidant regarding The Star Power.

  • Absolute Cleavage: The outfit she wears to Dr. Hymn's asteroid.
  • Death Glare: Brightman gives Shi Lalis one when Shi offers to "tag along" with the Brightman and Hymn.
  • Dress Hits Floor: When alone with Dr. Hymn, and he turns to ask her why she's visiting him at night...
  • For Science!: As a researcher, this is a given.
  • The Mentor: She's Danica's trainer and instructor in astrophysics.
  • Secret Keeper: Initially was one of the only three people who knew about The Star Power.
  • They Would Cut You Up: Was worried this would happen to Danica when word about The Star Power got out. Fortunately, she was wrong.

    Quincy Polgar 
A court appointed therapist assigned to The Countess to see if she's fit to stand trial. And also appeared on Sanctuary Six to see if Danica is ready to join the crew of The Traveler.

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He is able to read The Countess like a book just from her body language, to the point that she believes he's telepathic.
  • Armor-Piercing Response: He delivers one:
    "I see. Countess, you do not despise the Sentinels. You are jealous of them. While the last empire turned its back on its ideals, and your people fled to timeless space in retreat, the Star Powered Sentinels never wavered. They remained loyal to their ideology of love and compassion, and fought to the bitter end. You are loathe to admit you admire that stalwart dedication to their beliefs. You are loathe to admit you wish your people had been more like them."
  • Kirk Summation: With genuine compassion, he calmly and rationally offers The Countess a Last-Second Chance.
    Quincy Polgar:"We want to help you, Countess. After you have paid you debt for your crimes, we want you to become a full citizen of the Federation. When we are ready to accept you, I hope you are ready to accept us."
  • Megane: He wears glasses.
  • Not So Above It All: To get Danica to trust him, he reveals that he, like Danica, also finds Psi-Cop a guilty pleasure.
  • The Shrink: He's a court assigned therapist, chosen because apparently humans are the most "compatible" race to Scintillians.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Combined with Smart People Wear Glasses. He's a brilliant psychotherapist, rarely shows emotion, and he wears glasses.


The eponymous character of the Show Within a Show. A pun on "Psychology Ops".


How well does it match the trope?
