A few months ago, I did a blog series on my Star Trek Dream Crew (here and here). Then, at Skiltao's suggestion, I did a bit on my least favorite crew to act as a foil for them, even going so far as to do write ups for this evil, bizarro crew (Pt 1 & Pt 2). I've finally decided to write down the bios for the "good" crew.
The crew are non-Federation, with some conflict in the past having recently forged a trivial stellar nation with a handful of second-class vessels to undertake border defense, official transportation, keeping order, and exploration. Caretaker is a second-hand Star Fleet Nebula class vessel.
CO: CAPT Chakotay (post-Voyager)XO/Science: CDR Nyota Uhura (post-TOS)
Ops: LCDR Natasha Yar (post-TNG, didn’t die)
Tactical: LCDR Tuvok (pre-Voyager)
Engineering: LT Scott (pre-TOS)
Medical: LT Katherine Pulaski (pre-TNG)
Conn: ENS Ro Laren (pre-Maquis)
Other: Elim Garak (pre-DS9)
While Captain Chakotay's service earned him a handpicked crew, Elim Garak is the exception. A Cardassian appointed by the coalition government, he is ostensibly a Diplomatic Officer, but his obscured past, enigmatic ways, and bevy of unique talents leave most of the command staff uncomfortable with him. The rest of the crew adore him for his charisma and affable demeanor. Behind closed doors, a tenacious compassionate streak taints most of his covert activities.
