Last Featured Bio Contest Winner: Roshanara Rahman

Congratulations to the winner of this round’s Featured Bio Contest Roshanara Rahman and this round’s Feature Nominee Irina Pavlova!

Born on Moselina IV, a busy trade stop located near Krios Prime, the Kriosian homeworld, Roshanara’s birth parents gave her up for adoption, and a human couple took her in, named her, and raised her back on Earth in the city of Lahore. Often mistaken for a Trill due to her Kriosian spots, she joined Starfleet because of her interest in starship design and engineering, an interest that has not come without a cost as she was gravely injured early in her career from a major accident that required lengthy rehabilitation.

Rahman is a project manager for the Starfleet Corps of Engineers and a Starfleet Academy instructor. She previously served as an engineer aboard the starships Shanghai, Tempest, Pioneer, Mercury, and Garuda, and was chief engineer of the latter two vessels. She served as first officer to Fleet Captain Aron Kells aboard the Garuda and USS Invicta. She now commands the USS Veritas

Featured Bio Contest Winner for July: Lael Rosek

Congratulations to the winner of this round’s Featured Bio Contest Lael Rosek and this round’s Feature Nominee Ayiana Sevo!

Lael was born two minutes before her twin brother Kellan on Stardate 236610.24 to Adelynn Rosek in Cedar Springs, Michigan. She never met her father and, due to her mother’s silence, knew very little about him. From a young age, Lael showed a talent for Mathematics and her curious nature led her to a passion for taking things apart to see how they worked. Though she was bullied in her younger years due to her Al-Leyan heritage, her easy-going and compassionate nature won her many friends. As she grew older, she sought more adventurous pursuits, chief among them being sailing, cliff-diving, water skiing, rock climbing, and swimming in local ponds and lakes.

She spent most of her adolescence dreaming of a career as a Starfleet Officer. Following her graduation from high school on Stardate 238505.25, she took the Entrance Exam and began her first day as a cadet on Stardate 238508.07 intending to follow the Command track. She did well academically and was excelling on the Command track until the holovideos and graphic descriptions of torture caused her nightmares and PTSD. She was forced to undergo counseling and drop out of the Command track. Her twin brother convinced her that she would do better in gold than red, and Lael began studying engineering, operations, physics and communications.

Lael Rosek currently serves on the USS Veritas as an Engineering Officer and has made her her way up the ranks to full Lieutenant.

Featured Bio Contest Winner for May: LtCmdr. Randal Shayne

Congratulations to Featured Bio Contest winner Randal Shayne and this round’s Feature Nominee Oddas Aria!

Randal Shayne was born in Chicago, Illinois on Earth, however most of his childhood was spent on Starbase 912. Both his parents, Eric and Heidi Shayne, were high ranking Starfleet officers. His mother was the station’s CMO and his father would eventually become its Commanding Officer. Both of his parents made Randal and his brother, Zak, a priority and neither child was left wanting for attention. Randal decided to follow in his parents footsteps and was accepted into Starfleet Academy at age 18 as a medical cadet.

Randal was intent on helping people the way his mother had done for her whole career. Unfortunately, the pre-med curriculum proved incomprehensible for him and he was far to squeamish around the injured and sick. After his first year he transferred to the Engineering program. During this time Randal had very few friends and focused on his studies. Randal was on track to become a decent engineer, until an instructor noted his above average reflexes and decisiveness. The instructor suggested that he would better serve a ship behind the helm. This led Randal to reluctantly enrol in the flight team.

It was during this time that Randal began to make friends, felt the strong camaraderie among his fellow flight team members and came into his own as an officer. Randal was assigned to the USS Gemini right out of the academy as its helmsman and has made his career behind the helm of a variety of ships.

Randal Shayne has made his way up the ranks to Lt. Commander and now serves aboard the USS Atlantis as part of the Andaris Taskforce as its Chief Helmsman.

FBC Featured Nominee For March/April – Jocelyn Marshall

Congratulations to Featured Bio Contest winner Aitas and this round’s Feature Nominee Jocelyn Marshall!

Jocelyn, most often called “Jo”, was born on a Federation starship to Terran officers Robin and Luther Marshall. She was raised on Volan III following the Dominion War when her parents were deployed there to maintain the demilitarized zone and repair the damage caused by the occupation. Growing up among adults and the aftermath of the war, Jocelyn grew up quickly into a well-rounded young Bajoran woman. She enjoyed travelling the planet, mountain climbing, surfing, diving and Springball. Jocelyn also followed in the footsteps of her parents, both engineers, starting with a part-time apprenticeship in middle school and eventually working alongside Bajoran engineers.

Her drive to find and solve bigger and bigger engineering problems lead her to apply to Starfleet Academy. Jocelyn was a capable Engineer from the start and learned quickly. She chose to Major in Engineering, specifically Warp Theory, and minor in Operations to coincide with her abilities to multi-task. Taking on board her experience and talent for the work, she was deployed to the Fleet Operations Center to carry on her training while working on some of the most recent fleet vessels and technology in the field.

Jocelyn “Jo” Marshall was assigned to the USS Gorkon where she has made her way up the ranks to Lt.JG as an Operations Officer.

FBC Team Looking For Reps From the Andaris Task Force and the USS Athena

The Featured Bio Contest Team helps find and celebrate the best character pages on the wiki, as nominated by our members like you. The contest runs every two months, and everyone is encouraged to nominate a character page for the contest.

But making sure we select the best character pages also requires a team of dedicated members – ranked Lieutenant JG or higher – who review the nominations and help steer nominees in the right direction. We try and find one member from each ship, to help ensure the team is balanced, and we are currently looking for representatives from the Andaris Task Force and the USS Athena.

Participating on the team takes about one hour a month. There’s no prerequisite knowledge – you’ll learn everything you need to know once you join the team. But a healthy interest in the wiki and character profiles is helpful!

If you’re with the Andaris Task Force or on the USS Athena and interested in joining the team, let us know by replying in the forum.
