Featured Bio Contest Team needs members from Andaris & 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.

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. One of the main goals for the team this year is to have one member to represent each ship/base in the fleet. 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.


FBC Featured Nominee For Jan/Feb – Aitas

Aitas was born on Betazed. Her mother, Jissela Igre, was a Betazoid martial arts instructor and her father, Sakon, was a Vulcan xenobiologist. Her parents met when her mother was assigned to Sakon as a guard when he was studying large predatory animals in Betazed’s jungles. Aitas’ childhood was split between time on Betazed with her mother and going with her father on his research expeditions. Her happy childhood came to a quick and abrupt end as the Dominion War approached Betazed. Her mother was killed during the initial attack on Betazed. her father took her and fled Federation space, but were captured by slavers. The slavers separated Aitas from her father and never saw him again.


Feature Bio Winner for January: Jalana Rajel

Congratulations to Jalana Rajel of the USS Constitution-B who has been selected as the Featured Bio Winner for January 2017, and Aitas of Starbase 118 Ops, this round’s Featured Nominee.

Jalana Laxyn was born in the city of Mak’ala on Trill. Jalana’s father was an Ambassador who always wanted Jalana to follow in his footsteps. Her mother, Caline, was a botanist who seemed more intent on letting Jalana choose her own path. Jalana didn’t attend formal education institutions as a child, but was instead taught by her father. However, much to the disappointment of her father Jalana enrolled in a Trill Medical School to become a doctor.

After studying at med school Jalana knew she wanted to do more and enrolled in Starfleet Academy. It was while she was at Starfleet Academy that she received a message from the Symbiosis Commission on Trill to take the tests to become an initiate. Despite the fact it was her parents that must have sent in the application, not Jalana, she went along and took the tests out of her own curiosity. She passed the tests, but wouldn’t hear from the Commission until she was called upon for an emergency joining many years later.

Just prior to her joining, her fiancé Viktor Lanius had been charged with several murders and was awaiting trial. He’d managed a message to her telling her to leave him behind and live her life freely. It was shortly thereafter she became the seventh host of the Rajel Symbiont. In the months to follow, Jalana got her life back on track and was promoted to Commander. She took command of the USS Constitution-B where she remains – presently as Captain Jalana Rajel.

Randal Shayne, Featured Bio Contest Featured Nominee

Congratulations to Randal Shayne of the USS Darwin-A who was this round’s Feature Nominee and to this round’s Featured Bio Contest winner Taelon of Starbase 118 Ops.

The character of 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 enroll 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 now serves aboard the USS Darwin in the Delta Quadrant.

Featured Bio Winner for November: Taelon

Congratulations to Taelon of Starbase 118 Ops who has been selected as the Featured Bio Contest winner for November 2016, and Randal Shayne of the USS Darwin-A who is this round’s Featured Nominee!

Taelon was born and raised in relative isolation in a barren, arid red desert on Cestus II with his mother Azera. While he did receive some education at a school in a nearby colony, the majority of his education came from his mother and in assisting with her scientific research. His mother was often gone for long periods of time and it was during these times that Taelon learned self-reliance and discovered Starfleet.

Tensions with his mother, his primary (an near only) social outlet, became more and more volatile as he grew older and a heated argument in 2388 led him to finally leave and make his way to Earth where he managed to pass the entrance exam and enrol in Starfleet Academy. He focused on cybernetics, nanotech and robotics – the same skills he learned from his mother. Due to his isolated upbringing, Taelon wasn’t particularly social at the Academy. Instead he chose to spend most of his time working by himself in a variety of projects and areas of research and collecting several accolades for his classwork.

Taelon was assigned to Starbase 118 Operations directly from the academy where he has made his way up the ranks to Lieutenant and the base’s Chief of Science.

FBC Featured Nominee For September – Brandon Craig

Brandon Craig was born in Alaska to his parents Jeffrey and Ashley Craig. His father was a physician and his mother was a microbiologist. It seemed that medicine and science was in his DNA and he quickly developed an interest. Throughout his childhood his showed great compassion for the sick and spent a lot of time in the local hospital shadowing and helping his father treat patients.

At age 16 his only sibling, his older sister Ashley, contracted the Ammonx virus and fell ill. The virus was nearly fatal but Brandon stayed by her side, isolated the virus, stopped its progression and helped in her recovery. Despite his father’s protest, Brandon enrolled at Starfleet Academy when he was 21 and is now a long way from Alaska in the Gamma Quadrant as the Assistant Chief Medical Officer on the USS Athena.

Congratulations to Brandon Craig of the USS Athena who has been selected as the Featured Nominee and to Varaan of the USS Darwin who is this round’s Featured Bio Contest Winner.
