Lower Decks Interview: Lieutenant Junior Grade Ghant Xerix, USS Gorkon

We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border.

This month’s interview is with the writer behind Lieutenant Junior Grade Ghant Xerix playing a Betazoid/Risian male Helms Officer assigned to the USS Gorkon.

GALVEN: Thank you for allowing me to interview you! Could you tell us a little about yourself for our readers out there?

Xerix: My name is Johnny and I write for Ghant Xerix, a young officer from a noble house of Betazed. I’m also an entrepreneur, husband and father of two children. 

What has been your favorite moment writing for UFOP: StarBase 118?

Probably a joint post between myself, Ukinix and Rahman involving some dancing with a Betazoid noblewoman. They are great writers and it was a lot of fun. 


Poll of the Week: Best Looking Uniform?

There’s no getting past it; the United Federation of Planets has got style. Every live-action show has made some change to uniform audiences were introduced to in the 1960s. Often, it’s a complete departure from precidented looks, and other times, its merely a subtle shift, but whether you prefer the utilitarian jumpsuit of Enterprise, or the “Monster Maroons” of Star Treks II-VI, it’s likely that you have a favorite.

Which of the uniforms, in your opinion, looks the best?

Applications and Academy Graduates for September 2019

Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in September.

This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. The month of September only saw four new applications. This marks September as the month with the lowest number of applicants all year.

The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:

This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of September. The fleet saw five graduates during the month of September. This is an uncommon phenomenon that occurred because of August graduates who finished training in the beginning of September. We also had one applicant who’s training did not conclude until the beginning of October.

These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.

Poll of the Week: Superpower Your Character Would Want For A Day?

They might be heroes to us, but it’s easy to believe that our characters have dreams just like their writers. It’s not too far a stretch of the imagination to believe that those dreams might take a similar form to common fantasies in our daily lives. Who hasn’t wondered what it would be like to fly, or blast away at the bad guys with laser sight? Even with phasers and replicators at their disposal, the occasional dalliance with the impossible is only human.

Which superpower would your character like for a day?
