July 2013′s Featured Bio: Lt Cmdr Jalana Laxyn

Lieutenant Commander Jalana Laxyn, a non-joined Trill is the Chief Medical Officer on the USS Apollo. Her dedication to her patients and their needs has seen her progress through the ranks and she has worked her way up to the position of Chief Medical Officer. She is one of few students to graduate the Academy without having first earned the title of Doctor, however she is working on that alongside her regular duties.

She has a mentor, Cayden Adyr who is providing her with support as she goes through the training she’ll receive on the Trill Symbiosis Program. It is her hope that one day she will become joined.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with Major Viktor Lanius who she is in a relationship with. He taught her how to play poker and has been known to cook meals for them, which she particularly appreciates due to being hopeless at it herself. One of the things she can do though is play the Trillian flute, a wooden instrument she has been playing since childhood.

Lieutenant Commander Jalana Laxyn’s bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the month of July. As always, you can find out more about the contest at its wiki page or in its forum. Round 14 is now open, so be sure to drop by and submit your own nominations!

June 2013′s Featured Bio: Flt Captain Sidney Riley

Fleet Captain Sidney Riley is 7/8 Terran and 1/8 Deltan and while she does have Deltan pheromones in her system it’s not enough to give her problems interacting with others or require her to take the Deltan Oath of celibacy. She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2350 and is ten minutes younger than her older, identical twin sister Shannon.


May 2013′s Featured Bio: Lieutenant Jorus Cogud, USS Discovery-C

LtJorusCogudLieutenant Jorus Cogud began his career as a helmsman after graduating from StarFleet Academy with a major in helm and navigation, a minor in security and tactical. He worked his way up to chief helmsman before moving into his current role as the chief tactical officer of the USS Discovery-C.

The Trill was born on a Ferengi Smuggling vessel, which the family were in hiding on after getting revenge for the murder of his grandfather by Orions. Though Jorus never knew his grandfather the significant event had a profound effect on the family’s attitude and feelings towards the race. Jorus was brought up to hate and despise the people because of what they’d done and will avoid them even to this day.

The rest of his upbringing was just as interesting and he started training with Ferengi Energy Whips when he was just 7 years old. He continued to practice with them long after he left the vessel and has reached a professional level of competence with them. He keeps his skills sharp by practising whenever he has a spare moment.

Jorus was given a Marauder Mo action figure as a gift by his godfather Zug, who in a typical Ferengi fashion recommended he keep the original packaging so it would be worth more. His godfather also taught him to play Dabo from the age of 12. Jorus keeps the action figures to remind him of his upbringing on the Ferengi Vessel.

Lieutenant Jorus Cogud’s Bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the month of May. As always, you can find out more about the contest at its wiki page or in its forum. Round 12 is now open, so be sure to drop by and submit your own nominations!

Katy OrmanLieutenant Commander Katy Orman is the Chief of Security on Starbase 118. As winner for this month, her bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the month of April.

A Human/Orion hybrid, Orman started her career on the USS Resolution as an engineering officer and later switched to the security role. She also served on the Eagle as Chief of Security, and the Victory in the same role before moving into her current assignment.

Katy has a number of unique and interesting skills. She knows a number of meditative disciplines and claims to have been trained since childhood in an unusual martial art form she calls Shiji Gungfu.

September 2012’s Featured Bio Winner!

Captain Nicholotti’s bio is a beautifully written example of how the SB118 Wiki can go beyond lists of stats and dates to serve as a comprehensive narrative of a member’s time in the Fleet. From her first away mission when she defended a then-Lt. Cmdr. Andrus Jaxx to her assignment as commanding officer of StarBase 118, one day after delivering her godchildren, Nicholotti’s bio presents the story of an officer descended from a long military legacy who rose to command making pivotal decisions in times of crisis. Through it all, her fierce loyalty to her shipmates remains steadfast.

Captain Nicholotti’s bio will be displayed on the wiki’s front page for the next month. As always, you can find out more about the contest at its wiki page or in its forum.
