    Non-Player Faction Characters 

The Nimbosians

People living on Nimbus III, having chased the Federation, the Klingons and the Romulans from the planet over 100 years ago, they're now subjugated by Hassan the Undying and the Orion Syndicate.

  • Anarchy Is Chaos: The Nimbosians tossed everyone out because they represented law and order. Now, they kinda wished they hadn't...


A mysterious Romulan who aids your player during the initial stay in Nimbus III.

  • Broken Ace: Was once a proud lawman, but after being betrayed by a number of people and being abandoned, he's turned into a bitter man. At least until you show up.
  • Dead Man Writing: Subverted. He writes a letter to the player character when he decides to take care of a spying Gorn, fully expecting to die... only to come back and sheepishly shrug at the player when he's safe and sound. He's clearly embarrassed the player found the letter and found out he's safe.
  • Showdown at High Noon: He confronts the Gorn operative on Paradise City's main street in this fashion.

Hassan the Undying

Chief enforcer of the Orion Syndicate, he holds Nimbus III in a death grip, as well as allowing the Tal Shiar to do what they wish. He had a minor role in The Path to 2409 as Melani D'ian's right-hand man during her ascent to the top of the Syndicate.

  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When your player character defeats all of his gladiators and himself, he gets fed up, teleports away and sics everyone in his building on you.
  • Smug Snake: Certainly this prior to breaking him. He's incredibly secure in his power and isn't afraid of making sure you and anyone else is put in their place.
  • Stout Strength: He's surprisingly portly for Melani D'ian's most feared assassin.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After you best him in combat, he panics and runs away. When you chase him into space, he's ranting and raving that you'll never take him and that he and the Orion Syndicate will keep Nimbus III.

The Nimbosian Pirates

A group of various races that take pleasure in robbing people and have a major chip on their shoulder towards the Orion Syndicate.

  • The Cavalry: In "Installation 18", they show up as soon as Hakeev and his men arrive to take you on. Hakeev takes the moment to skedaddle out of there. And then one of the items you can earn by beating the mission "Installation 18" is the Nimbus Pirate Distress Call, which brings the pirates to you. This is what happens when you save their bacon.
  • It's Personal: They all hate the Orion Syndicate (or at the very least Hassan) and are willing to give you a hand if you fix up a problem they have with their ship.

     Other Characters 

Lieutenant Natasha Yar

Played by Denise Crosby
The Alternate Yar from the Enterprise-D from Yesterday's Enterprise who went back in time with the Enterprise-C. ... Except they went the wrong way. Woops!

  • Apocalyptic Log: In "Survivor", the player character discovers that Tasha didn't actually die in Romulan captivity, but lived for many more years in an abandoned Tal Shiar prison. The datapads you pick up and recharge tell the story of the remains of the Enterprise-C crew's last days as they died from old age, wildlife and temporal anomalies caused by the "Temporal Ambassador" version of Admiral T'Nae. She is the last person to die, requesting to T'Nae to tell the story of the Enterprise crew and to tell Sela that she loves her.
  • Art Evolution: Tasha's design changed with Delta Rising, making her look more like Denise Crosby today. It doesn't look that great, and in "Temporal Ambassador" doesn't match very well with the character's objective age in that mission.
  • Back for the Dead: Again...
  • Bus Crash/Child by Rape/Made a Slave/Sex Slave: Yeah, her attempt to have a meaningful death? Doesn't go as planned. As those familiar with Star Trek: The Next Generation should know, the Enterprise-C is captured by a Romulan general, who forces Tasha to become his mistress in exchange for everyone else's lives, fathers Sela on her, then has her shot when she tries to escape with her daughter. "Survivor" reveals that that last little bit was actually not true...
  • Death Seeker: With the stipulation that she wants her death to mean something: she knows she's meant to be dead in the original timeline, the sticking point is how. It doesn't work out, as seen in the Bus Crash example.
  • Doomed by Canon: Anyone familiar with her story from TNG knows her hope to die in a meaningful way is
  • Never My Fault: No, I did not say I was handling the security protocols and no, Tholians don't know Stafleet Regulations.
  • Running Gag: Her appearance is one. Why can't she stay dead!?
  • Timey-Wimey Ball


Sadly, not the Q we all know and love. This one's his son and he's just as annoying as his pappy.


A Ferengi businessman who the player encounters in search of the Tal Shiar. He later works for the Romulan Republic

  • Bad Boss: He works the Romulans he hires to pay off their debts to the bone and, as is a Ferengi's hat, prefers the pursuit of wealth than anything else.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When you bust his second operation on New Romulus, he runs off in a panic, escaping. Though also he claims the Tal Shiar were blackmailing him by holding his family (read: latinum) hostage.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: "Oh, it's you again..."
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When you encounter him on New Romulus, he's not too happy you trashed his mining operation. Granted, it was more Hakeev's fault.


Chief Engineer of the U.S.S./I.K.S./R.R.W. Dyson.
  • Badass Boast: He proudly boasts that the Dyson can take on the Voth and the Undine.
    • Oh, Crap!: When he realizes that the Undine have stronger ships.
  • Klingon Promotion: Kinda sorta. He's the only high-ranking crew mate seen, and with the captain dead, he's the captain.


How well does it match the trope?
