U.S.S Discovery

     Paul Stamets

A holographic recreation of Paul Stamets from the 23rd century. He later gains the real Paul Stamet's memories and personality, becoming alive.

  • Back from the Dead: Effectively resurrected by a combination of holograms and the Mycelial Network
  • Badass Gay: Helps you fight against all the Elachi and Klingon forces you face,
  • Cloning Blues: Averted since the real Paul Stamets has been dead (or presumed so) for awhile.
  • Genetic Memory: Though not because he's a clone but because he's got the memories of his basis in the spore network.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Is a 23rd century man in the 25th century.
  • Hard Light: Like most Star Trek holograms. Doubly so because he has a mobile emitter.
  • Just a Machine: Is not sentient, just aping sentience until he merges with the Mycelial Network.
  • Temporary Party Member: Helps you explore the Mycelial Network.
  • What Measure Is A Nonhuman: Is not truly sentient until he merges with the Mycelial Network's copy of his memory.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Is not entirely happy to be resurrected and find out everyone he knows is dead, including his husband.

Klingons (House Mo'kai)

House Mo'Kai, sometimes called the "House of Mo'Kai," was one of the Great Houses in the Klingon Empire until its dissolvment. Its last leader was Aakan.

  • All in the Manual: Their backstory is considerably enriched if you read the lore about them on the blogs.
  • Back from the Brink: Ambassador B'Vat wiped out every living member of this organization. Or so he thoughtg. However, J'Ula brings back an army of them from the past.
  • Blackmail: How the House maintained its vast power.
  • Blue Blood: One of the Klingon Great Houses.
  • Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: One of their members transported away a bat'leth during a tournament. All it did was get the rules amended and give the House a bad reputation.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Adet'pa joins their ranks after helping save Martok.
  • Fantastic Racism: All of them despise any race other than Klingons. The current Klingon Empire disgusts them with the near-equality it gives other races and its alliance with the Federation.
  • Loophole Abuse: They're very fond of this as we see above.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Inverted. They're Klingons with no sense of honor or decency.
  • Offscreen Villain Dark Matter: Her antiquated vessels get upgraded to 25th century standards by surviving members of her house.
  • Replacement Flat Character: They pretty much replace J'mpok and B'vat as the Always Chaotic Evil Klingons.


J'Ula is a Klingon matriarch of the House of Mo'Kai. She commands the I.K.S. Lukara. She is the sister of T'Kuvma.

A Klingon Special Forces operative in the 23rd century.


Terrans (I.S.S Discovery)

The crew of the I.S.S Discovery that is transported to the future by their spore drive.

  • Anti-Mutiny: Security Chief Patel and the PCs help Tilly arrange one of these.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: As to be expected on a Terran vessel.
  • Enemy Civil War: Averted as you ally with Tilly's faction against the Mutineers. Then she turns against you.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the U.S.S Discovery crew, of course.
  • Evil vs. Evil: They're enemies with House Mokai.
  • Fantastic Racism: To extreme levels. The very idea of allying with aliens or alien-aligned individuals results in an immediate mutiny against Tilly.
  • The Mutiny: Has one of these happen the moment they come to the future.

     Captain Tilly ("Captain Killy")

Captain Sylvia Tilly (also known as "Captain Killy") is a Terran Captain and the Mirror Universe counterpart of Cadet Sylvia Tilly. In 2256, Tilly was in command of the I.S.S. Discovery. When the U.S.S. Discovery jumped into the Mirror universe using the spore hub drive, Tilly, her ship and her crew were thrown into the 25th century of the Prime universe where she remains at large.

  • Ambition Is Evil: Plans on becoming Emperor of the mainline universe.
  • Bad Boss: Threatens Patel with an Agonizer Booth and has all of the Mutineers executed.
  • The Baroness: Of the sexpot variety.
  • Blatant Lies: Claims she's seeking asylum in the regular universe. She actually wants to conquer it.
  • Buxom Is Better: Noticeably more endowed than other women in the game.
  • The Captain: Is the Captain of the I.S.S Discovery and a particularly feared and ruthless one.
  • Debt Detester: Refuses to fire on your ship again due to the help you gave her.
  • Evil Overlord: Plans on becoming one of these in the main universe.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Is thrown into the future by the spore drive.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Obviously her model is based on Mary Wiseman from the TV show (who plays Ensign Tilly).
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her Custom Uniform of Sexy covers more than most but is no less fetching.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Allies with the PCs against House Mokai and claims she's seeking asylum. Then turns on you after her superweapon is ready.
