Full Cast (in order of appearance):

Lieutenant JG Winifred "Brooks" (Amy Acker)

This woman is slightly taller than is average for a female of her species, standing perhaps five feet eight inches by old Earth scale--perhaps 1.8 meters. She has the sort of frame that some might call thin and others might call sknny--while she's clearly female, and a bit curvy, and certainly healthy-looking, she's... well... thin. Her face is long, and might be considered pretty if one likes human women with pleasantly rounded faces, with brown eyes, long nose, full lips, straight eyebrows. Her hair, long enough to reach her elbows and curly, is also brown, the kind that glints gold in the light, left down, the mass of it falling over shoulders and back as it will. Somehow despite the attractiveness of her features and frame she manages to put off an impression of being shorter and mousier than she really is. Perhaps it's her stance, or the way her eyes tend not to look people directly in the face. Perhaps it's the way her voice seems to run a mile a minute when she talks, hampered somewhat by a thick regional accent. Perhaps it's the glasses she often has perched on the end of her nose--and who wears glasses these days, anyhow?

She wears a Starfleet duty uniform. The jacket is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a quilted gray yoke and covers most of a Starfleet Teal turtleneck shirt. Near the cuffs of the sleeves is a thin Starfleet Teal stripe. Attached to the right side of the turtleneck's collar are o*. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the jacket, just under the yoke. The elasticized waist meets a pair of black slacks that fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Lieutenant Jason "Turner" (Jean Reno)

This human male stands perhaps a hundred and eighty centimeters tall--roughly six feet or so, for the metrically challenged--and probably weighs in at about eighty kilos. At first glance, he could be the stereotypical villain from bad Earth flatfilms. A stubble of close-buzzed black hair covers his scalp, peaking high on his forehead. His eyes are a bland sort of blue, set beneath heavy-looking brows. His features are sharp, a touch angular, and lend him a perpetually hostile expression. A thin black Van Dyck leads into a natty goatee, concealing narrow, bloodless lips.

Broad-shouldered and looking more like a linebacker than anything else, this man nevertheless wears the uniform of a commissioned Starfleet officer. The mustard gold collar, indicating his position in an operations department, bears two gold pips--a lieutenant's rank. The uniform is a fairly normal number, with the quilted gray yoke about his shoulders leading down the chest of his black uniform jacket. Upon his left breast is a combadge, but a noticeably different one: it's a combadge from the 2360's, a badge with the gold oval behind the delta, instead of the newer, modern square.

At his side is a mildly counter-regulation container, perhaps six centimeters wide and ten long. The boots he wears are the standard regulation footwear, but show signs of wear that suggest that this pair might well have traveled with their owner for quite a while.

Lt. Commander Emory "Veshedsky" (Valeri Nikolayev)

Standing at about six feet and two inches tall, Emory Veshedsky is a striking figure. A short bedding of black, dark hair covers the top of the man's head, growing down into slight sideburns on the side of his face. His eyes are a dark, a deep green or blue color within the irises, his face sculpted with a prominent chin, a bit of brown stubble prominently shown here. His neck his toned, not exactly thick, as it leads down into broadened shoulders, which further lead down into rather muscular and built arms; his hands and fingers are just as strong looking, flexing every so often. His body overall is quite lean, and fit, giving the air of someone who maintains their appearance by working out.

He wears a Starfleet duty uniform. The jacket is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a quilted gray yoke and covers most of a Starburst Gold turtleneck shirt. Near the cuffs of the sleeves is a thin Starburst Gold stripe. Attached to the right side of the turtleneck's collar are o**. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the jacket, just under the yoke. The elasticized waist meets a pair of black slacks that fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Captain Gwendolyn "Hawkins" (Marg Helgenberger)

Standing at perhaps five and a half feet, this woman radiates a strong presence at most times. Gray eyes dominate a face that, while it is no longer youthful, is not yet given over to old age. Though her expression is often serious on the times she flashes a smile it lights up her face--though she's more likely to be quirking reddish eyebrows in inquiry. Her hair is strawberry blond, and falls around her face to just past her shoulders. She has a dancer's body, lithe and slim, and moves with easy grace.

She wears a Starfleet duty uniform. The jacket is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a quilted gray yoke and covers most of a Command Red turtleneck shirt.

Lieutenant J.G. Bunni "Aventino" (Katee Sackhoff)

At 168 centimeters and 52.5 kilograms, Lieutenant JG Bunni Aventino's firmly of average height for a human female, spry and muscular not only from Starfleet training but also a keen enjoyment of sports. She's light on her feet, seldom keeping still; even when she's seated the balls of her feet are generally planted on the floor, leg muscles working a bit as if prepared to jump up at a moment's notice. She has a bit of a natural slouch when she sits, but standing she generally carries herself with typical Starfleet rigidity, fingers fidgiting and weaving with one another at the ends of her locked-straight arms at the base of her spine when she's not working on something else. She's considerably busty and has enough of a feminine curve to her hips to make her look a bit shorter than she actually is. Her hair hangs straight to the top of her neck, parted on one side down the middle, with long streaked-blonde bangs often falling into her face from behind her ears. Her eyes are prominent and dark brown in color, attentive and expressive, her eyebrows narrow and coming to slight peaks over the far sides of her eyes. Her nose is a cute, slightly crooked button which wrinkles when she laughs, and her lips are full and pink, thinning and parting to show an often mischievous grin. A few freckles spatter her girlish cheekbones and the bridge of her nose.

Lieutenant Katherine "Alexandria" (Retired Character)

Before you is a young woman who appears to be in her late twenties, her face is unblemished, soft and smooth. She has long shining golden blond hair in soft curls which are pulled back to the sides with satin blue ribbon berets, that have some of the ribbon cascading down about 2-3 inches, on either side of her head. Her eyes are sparkle with a unique combination of blue and deep violet hues intermingling in the iris. Her face almost glows in soft peach tones, with minimal make-up her gentle round face is blemish free. She sports just a hint of blush and a pale pink lipstick to bring out her wholesome appearance. Her height is about 5'2" and her build is mostly athletic with some gentle soft spots, her busom is ample yet not overwhelming.

Lieutenant M'train, NPC Asst. Chief Science Officer

Commander "Solvek" (Adrian Brody)

He is a tall man, over six feet in height. The dominant feature of his face is the nose, long and pointed, to either side of which are set expressive dark eyes. The other most obvious feature are the pointed ears easily seen past his regulation-short hair. His skin has a greenish cast as befits a Vulcan, yet he looks as though he perhaps practices sympathetic looks more often than most Vulcans--or perhaps it is merely because his eyebrows are not as given to points as most others of his race. He is a bit lanky, but looks to eat well enough.

Lieutenant "T'Lyt" (Traci Lords)

This woman stands perhaps five-and-a-half feet in height and is possessed of a softly, fully curved figure. Her pointed ears clearly mark her as a vulcanoid and her general lack of emotive facial expression marks her as a Vulcan instead of a Romulan. Fair-skinned, she has an oval face that is framed nicely by her long dark-red hair -- usually pulled back into a ponytail at the back of her neck. Green eyes and pouty red lips, apparently tinted darker than their natural tone, stand out against her almost-pale complexion.

She wears a one-piece Starfleet duty uniform. The uniform is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a gray yoke and covers most of a Starburst Gold turtleneck shirt. Near the cuffs of the sleeves is a thin Starburst Gold stripe. Attached to the right side of the turtleneck's collar are **. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the uniform, just under the yoke. The legs of the uniform fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Ed "Danley" (Jack Black) (Retired Character)

The bartender stands just under 6 foot tall and looks to weigh around 210-220. While he doesn't appear to be overly athletic, he does appear to be in shape. His jet black hair is slicked back with some type of substance. His skin is lightly tanned and while his face wouldn't be considered chiseled, his bone structure is very defined. Either his brown eyes are set back in his head just a touch or the bridge of his nose protrudes just a bit.

He wears a Starfleet like duty uniform. The jacket has a print of an underwater ocean scene with various colorful tropical fish playing in the water. It has long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a gray yoke and covers most of a Starburst Gold turtleneck shirt. Near the cuffs of the sleeves is a thin Starburst Gold stripe. Attached to the side of the turtleneck's collar are ****. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the jacket, just under the yoke. The elasticized waist meets a pair of slacks with a matching tropical pattern that fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Vice Admiral Alison Crawford (NPC 12th Fleet Commander played by Maggie Smith)

Lieutenant Caradoc Mason (Steve Buscemi) (Retired Character)

Two or three inches below six feet, this man stands with a slightly droopy posture, as if he'd just run a marthon. A mop of lank hair is pushed back over his broad forehead and tucked behind his ears. His light blue eyes have a slight bulge to them, and are supported by red rimmed eyelids that have begun to droop and sag. Creases on his brow are indicative of much frowning, and his pale complexion offers an insight into a life spent largely indoors. This is further evidenced by his lack of defined musculature, and again his posture. The downturn of his mouth suggests either a lack of humour or the prominence of sarcasm in his wit. His hands seem to be the only frequently exercised aspects of his physique; the veins are prominent and his pianist fingers appear quite strong.

He wears a Starfleet duty uniform. The jacket is black, with long sleeves and a zippered front. It sports a quilted gray yoke and covers most of a Starfleet Teal turtleneck shirt.

Ambassador G'Mar Katsulok (NPC Antarean Ambassador to Starfleet played by Andreas Katsulas)

Ensign Ashby "Clayton" (Nathan Fillion)

Ash Clayton stands a little bit over 6'1", and has a lanky, but solid build that compliments his easy, unhurried movements and laid-back, almost lazy posture. His features are strikingly boyish for a man his age, chocolate hair in a cropped regulation 'Fleet haircut, framing a smooth complexion and rounded jawline, culminating in a strong chin. The only hints of mileage that show on him come from his auburn eyes - normally warm, they sometimes focus with terrible intensity or sag with bone-deep weariness. When he's angry or determined, age lines show more prominently, replacing the boyishness with a hard edge.

He wears a Starfleet duty uniform. There is a vest partially covering a Starburst Gold turtleneck shirt. The vest is black from waist to mid-chest, and quilted gray through the top half. It covers all of the turtleneck but the sleeves and a cut-out down the front. Attached to the right side of the turtleneck's collar are *. A Starfleet compin rests on the left breast of the vest, its bottom in line with the bottom of the cut out. Both vest and turtleneck are zippered down the front. The elasticized waist of the vest meets a pair of black slacks that fall straight and well-pressed to a pair of well-shined black boots.

Commander Katheran "Omtala" (Debra Messing) (Retired Character)

Before you lies an interesting blend of severity and tenderness, a woman who bears herself well and yet does not give in to formality. Eyes of the palest blue-green sparkle with the light of one with a keen intellect. Her hair falls like a great swath of snow down her back as a valley of white between the crests of her shoulder blades. Oftentimes it is braided into a single weave that falls the length of her back. The remainder of her face stays yet an echo of her race and though a pale blue lingers in seamless porcelain, two antennae extending forward from above her temples.. Standing tall for a woman she is just over 1.8 meters tall and of a lithe build that is often found in those of her race. She walks with the grace of a cat and the poise of an eagle.

Its sleeves are long and there are several pockets for instruments.

Lieutenant J.G. "Ouyang" Diomed (Retired Character)

Standing almost six feet tall, he wears a short dark hair that is evenly trimmed right above his ears. His complexion is rather pale with little shades of color save for the shadows cast by the creases on his nose. His brown eyes seem dim, yet fiery at the same time, as if embers burning. He wears a long earring chain with a large piece of obsidian, dark as the empty space outside the station, yet glistens like the stars. The long earring hangs from his right ear and reaches down to his shoulder.

Ensign Drake "Bellows" (Retired Character)

Drake Bellows is a normal white human male. He is roughly 5'10", about the average height, and has short dirty blonde hair, but long enough on top to have it a little messed up. He has thin eyebrows that start thin towards the nose, then gets bigger towards on the other end. He has big brown eyes that catch just about anything they see, and they stick out very well from his very white skin that just seems to not get any color from the sun. He has a short nose that buldges slightly around the nostrils and the tip, and average sized lips. His build is that of a young farmer, skinny arms that are quite firm and strong, a firm chest, along with well structred legs. The mans hands match that of his body, strong and firm from working about the farm.

Lt. Commander "Koram" Nobil (Peter Coyote) (Retired Character)

Koram Nobil is a Bajoran male in his mid to late 30s. He has short, dark hair slicked back, and his eyes are amber brown. Koram's face is hard and craggy, and shows worry lines created by too many late nights staring at a computer console. His nose displays the typical wrinkles of his race. Koram Nobil stands at just less than 2 meters, and his frame is thin and lanky. His arms and legs are long, and seem to be what gives him most of his height.

Lieutenant Rhiannan "Menarii" (Denise Gentile)

The woman standing before you is standing at a height of about five and a half feet, her build slender, her skin a healthy bronze shade. Her long black hair is slightly wavy and about an inch of hair on either side is tied behind her head to keep her face clear. Her eyes are not dark brown, but very clearly black, the irises blending into the pupil, making it impossible to tell where the iris ends and the pupil begins.

Commander Rose "Ames" (Retired Character)

A woman, seeming to be in her mid to late 20's, with light red hair, green-colored eyes, and light-colored skin. She is short and thin, standing just an inch, maybe two, more than five feet, and looking to weigh only one-hundred and thirty pounds or so. Her face is set rather attractively, and her almond-shaped eyes are a nice feature. Her torso is lean, and shapely. Her legs are reasonably muscular, and are long in comparasion to her torso - though, given her height, this doesn't mean much - and her arms and hands are oddly thin.
