Rivi Vataix

Rivi Vataix

  • Rank: Ambassador
  • Duty Post: Chief of Mission & Commanding Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 38-year-old Betazoid Female
  • Birthplace: Ohmallera, Betazed

Ambassador Niarivi "Rivi" Vataix is a daughter of the Eleventh House of Betazed and the chief of mission and commanding officer of Amity Outpost.

Firstborn daughter of the Vataix family, Niarivi (known more commonly by her nickname Rivi) is a cheery young woman who will be tasked with the duties of head of the house once she assumes the title from her mother, Naminae Vataix. Until then, however, Rivi has been working on rebuilding the house following its losses sustained from the Dominion War and the attack on Ohmallera, having sought help from her cousin Sky Blake.

In 2398, she was appointed as a Federation ambassador and assigned by the Federation Diplomatic Corps to serve as the chief of mission for Amity Outpost, the Federation's newest diplomatic outreach to the species of the Delta Quadrant.

Lt. Commander
Wil Ukinix

Wil Ukinix

Wil’s home has always been Fremantle, but he attended junior school in Beijing, the Oceanic Regional Middle School in Auckland, New Zealand, and the Dr. Andy Thomas Senior School in Sydney, Australia.

He is close to his mother Stacey, and from a young age wanted to join Starfleet to be like his Mother. Throughout his life, he spent much of his time pulling apart and putting back together all manner of technology and reverse engineering software systems, which is how he came to have a technical mind. He also spent a lot of time at his grandparent’s winery - he has a great relationship with them, especially with Astrad.

Before joining Starfleet Academy, Wil took a "gap year" (that ended up being almost two years), which is why he was slightly older than other cadets.

Lt. Commander
John Carter

John Carter

  • Rank: Lt. Commander
  • Duty Post: Chief Counselor & Second Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 44-year-old Human Male
  • Birthplace: Kansas City, Kansas

Early on, John was an avid reader, and he pretty much read whatever he could lay his hands on. His thirst for reading led him to languages and he learned several languages, including Romulan, Klingon (two dialects), Vulcan and a little bit of Ferengi.

His love of the spoken word took him to the University of Kansas, where he majored in both Linguistics and Psychology, graduating in 2376. On the advice of his mother and father, he went to college first before attending Starfleet Academy, where he majored in Counseling and Communications. He always had a drive to talk to other races which inhabited the Federation, and he always had a drive to see what was over the next hill, find the next new sentient race, learn their language and teach them his. His parents made sure they kept him out of the Dominion War by having him go to college first before going to the Academy.

Graduating in 2380, Johns’ first assignment was at Starbase 375, where he was assigned to the Counselors’ Office, where he was one of ten on the staff. In late 2398, John was assigned to Amity Station, an assignment he requested because of the opportunity to meet and converse with new races in the Delta quadrant and hopefully help the Federation and Starfleet make a few new friends, and strengthen old ties. It is an assignment he is looking forward to.

Lt. Commander
Kinan Venroe

Kinan Venroe

  • Rank: Lt. Commander
  • Duty Post: Personnel Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 39-year-old Trill Female
  • Birthplace: Etamoa V

Lieutenant Commander Ariealt Renya Kinan Venroe is the personnel administration officer of the Barossa Sector, looking after officer management. She is responsible for getting officers from one posting to another, often called upon to give advice on political or embassy matters, and will often liaison between Starfleet Administration and ships active within her designated areas if necessary.

Kinan likes to present herself as official and business-like, keeping with her ideal that she must present herself in such a way lest she run into superiors whilst off-duty (not her Starfleet superiors, but her diplomatic charges outside of Starfleet).

Born on a small colonized world by the name of Etamoa V, based in a far corner of nowhere, Kinan was raised in a stable community made with a lot of structure. Soon, Starfleet would launch a research program on Etamoa V, and Kinan would become increasingly interested in joining their ranks, interested in all the reports behind the scenes and just how much detail went into every decision and every development.



  • Rank: Ensign
  • Duty Post: Helm / Com / Ops Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 24-year-old Caitian Male
  • Birthplace: Cait

In 2395, S'Raga was accepted into Starfleet Academy in San Francisco on Earth. Attending the Academy marked his first time leaving the Regulus system. S'Raga found that the climate in San Francisco wasn't dissimilar to that of his home-city of Dorlin, however he did have some difficulty adapting to certain cultural differences, such as the staggering variety of foods and other people's overt friendliness. During his first few months at the Academy, S'Raga would often feel overwhelmed, and would retreat to his quarters to recenter himself and write to his family. Over time, however, S'Raga grew more accustomed to life on Earth and embraced its eccentricities.

With piloting as his primary focus, S'Raga chose to pursue a major in Helm and Navigation. Due to the core course requirements, however, S'Raga did not have any opportunity to pilot a spacecraft in his first year. In his second year, he was finally able to enroll in courses that would allow him to fly. S'Raga's exceptional performance in his first two piloting courses caught the eye of his instructors, and at the end of the year S'Raga was offered a spot in the Third Academy Training Wing's Falcon Squadron, with whom he will train for his remaining two years at the Academy. Flying with Falcon Squadron while also handling a full course-load was challenging, but S'Raga was fully in his element and was able to successfully navigate all of his commitments, and by the end of his fourth year he was awarded a Flight Proficiency Award. His focus came at a price, though, as he didn't allow much time for social activities. Although he grew a camaraderie with the rest of his squadron, S'Raga had few close relationships by the time he graduated.

Lieutenant JG
Nathan Richards

Nathan Richards

  • Rank: Lieutenant JG
  • Duty Post: Engineering Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 30-year-old Human Male
  • Birthplace: Bigfork, Montana

Nathan was born in Bigfork, Montana to Jennifer and Patrick Richards. The Richards family had taken on the duty of maintaining and protecting what remained of the Glacier National Park over the past 150 years. Spending lots of time in the National Park, Nathan developed exceptional survival skills and discovered his love for engineering while working on the autonomous park equipment and containment facilities. After many years, Nathan decided he wanted to be part of something more than just another ‘park ranger,’ as they used to be called, and enlisted into starfleet.

Nathan has always been a bit of a free spirit. A people pleaser. Going out of his way to make sure those he cared about were happy and taken care of. With an almost overwhelmingly positive personality, and a sometimes dark sense of humor, Nathan has never seemed to have an issue getting along with anyone he has come across.

Cassian iovians.png
Lt. Commander
Cassian Iovianus

Cassian Iovianus

  • Rank: Lt. Commander
  • Duty Post: Chief of Security
  • Age/Species/Sex: 42-year-old Magna Roman Male
  • Birthplace: Gramen Urb, Septentriones Vineam Province, Magna Roma

Born in the Septentriones Vineam province to the regional governor Sabina Virgnia and her husband Aldric Kuno, Cassian was nearly raised in the military. Being born into such a station he had a strict upbringing, spending more time with his noncitizen father going over strategies at every possible chance, even the games that young Cassian played had an eye toward strategy and skill more than luck in their outcome.

Graduating from the academy he got himself assigned to the USS Quirinal rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander and Chief of Security and Tactical services on board. That was until Starfleet selected him to fill in as the XO on the USS Juneau which needed a temporary replacement to fill in. While inwardly reserved Cassian was excited for the attempt at advancing his career to the next stage.

His time on the Juneau was short lived though as he found the opportunity presented by the opening of Amity Station too much to pass up. Even if it did require a return to his familiar position of Chief of Security he jumped at the opportunity to return to the frontier. While on leave to prepare for the launch of Amity he returned to the home world and had a chance to invest with a childhood friend in his winery that he had taken over from his parents.

Lieutenant JG
Rebecca Iko

Rebecca Iko

  • Rank: Lieutenant JG
  • Duty Post: Security Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 25-year-old Human / Klingon Hybrid Female
  • Birthplace: Campbelltown, NSW, Australia

Rebecca, or Bec as she is known to most people (if not all) grew up on Earth in a small town known as Campbelltown near Sydney, Australia, as the youngest of 4 with three older human-hybrid stepbrothers.

Bec applied for and was accepted into Starfleet Academy in 2393, however, she had to retake her first year due to failing, not one, but several subjects. Bec took basic classes in engineering, security and Medical, not yet quite sure which direction she would head into. That year's results were clear, as both engineering and medical ended up coming back with atrocious grades, despite her studying efforts. She continued in security for the rest of her academy days. Bec didn't have many friends at the academy, as she was mainly found studying or catching up on last-minute work, determined not to let her chance at being a Starfleet officer float away in the wind. When she got to Amity she found everyone clearly already forming friendships and acquaintances but found it surprisingly easy to scoot into those groups and determine her small corner of mates. She never thinks too much about climbing the ranks - other than getting out of the Academy.

While at Amity she has discovered many things about her family, including her mother's Betazoid heritage. This fact when initially given made Bec feel rather confused, and after more thought fueled the anger she already had for her maternal ancestor. She also met her father, who was absent from her childhood and there is tension in the relationship. She's also struggled with emotional effects after each mission but is quite grateful for her support system of many friends and the many people she has named her brothers.

Robin Hopper

Robin Hopper

  • Rank: Lieutenant
  • Duty Post: Chief Science Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 28-year-old Human / Centauran Hybrid Female
  • Birthplace: Theta VII

Dr. Robin Hopper is a Human/Centauran Lieutenant serving as Chief Science Officer aboard Amity Outpost. She was previously posted aboard the deep space science vessel, USS Wall Street. She grew up on the 'old frontier' world, Theta VII, on her parents' hydroponic farm estate.

She completed her undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, then went on to complete her masters in Physics. After six years studying physics in California, it was hard to ignore the call of Starfleet. She applied for the Academy on a whim, submitting an application to complete her PhD studies that she never expected to be accepted. Much to her surprise, she was accepted.

Robin’s first posting was aboard the Oracle Class USS Wall Street under the command of Captain Sh'Torn. There, she learned quickly, amidst a crew of dedicated scientific minds. Her genial personality and enthusiasm earned her a spot on the ship’s coveted ‘day shift’ where she would be able to work closely with the vessel’s Chief Science Officer, Trisha Montgomery. Under Montgomery’s tutelage, it wasn’t long before Robin achieved the rank of Lieutenant and took on a role as a Computer Science Specialist.

When news of Amity Outpost’s establishment in the Delta Quadrant reached Robin’s ears, she felt immediately drawn to the distant and exciting deep space station. Excited at the prospect, and with Chief Science Officer Montgomery’s recommendation on her file, Robin requested a transfer to Amity Outpost in early 2399.

Ikaia Icon.png
Ikaia Wong

Ikaia Wong

  • Rank: Lieutenant
  • Duty Post: Chief Medical Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 27-year-old Klingon Male
  • Birthplace: Unknown (Raised in Honolulu, Hawaii)

Ikaia Wong doesn’t know his bio parents and never grew up in a Klingon family or surrounded by Klingon culture. Instead he was adopted by the Wongs, his human family. The middle child of three children, Ikaia grew up surrounded by a loving family in Honolulu. He was a quiet and curious child who was interested in the world around him and why it was the way it was. He often liked exploring Hawaii’s many beaches or visiting his Aunt Niko’s alpaca farm on Moloka’i where he would eventually work during the summers in his teens. Eventually, he would follow his mother, a doctor and lifelong influence, into Starfleet to pursue medicine.

After serving aboard the USS Veritas, Ikaia Wong is looking forward to his new posting at the Amity Outpost as the Chief Medical Officer. He has currently earned his Emergency Medicine Fellowship with the Starfleet Medical Academy.

Ikaia is generally a friendly, polite and affable sort of person who cares deeply for those around him and under his care. He is a driven individual who is willing to sacrifice himself in order to protect a patient. Although, Ikaia does have a nervous streak to him.

Cara Veers

Cara Veers

  • Rank: Ensign
  • Duty Post: Science Officer
  • Age/Species/Sex: 25-year-old Trill Female
  • Birthplace: USS Musashi

Cara Tenors was born aboard the USS Musashi, a Galaxy class starship, to her loving parents Jolana and Tendall. Growing up onboard the Musashi until her father's retirement from Starfleet, Cara was always excited to eventually join Starfleet one day. Proceeding through most of her education rather quiet and reserved, just going through the motions until she got to her secondary schooling. Here Cara would grow out of her shell and start to explore more into who she really wanted to be.

Halfway through her final year of schooling, Cara was accepted into Starfleet Academy as an undeclared major. Deciding the engineering courses weren't worth the Operations major, Cara would decide on a Sciences Major with a Minor in Security at the end of year 2. By the end of her time at the Academy Cara would be accepted into the Trill Initiate Program with special exceptions to attend the initiate program before attending her cadet cruise. The Trill Initiate Program pushed Cara to her absolute limit, but she was one of the 5% who actually passed. After another few months on Trill, Cara would receive the Veers Symbiont, taking another three to get used to having a Trill Symbiont and their memories as part of herself. Once deemed fit by the Symbiosis Committee, Cara would receive her cadet cruise duty orders to Starbase 118 and the USS Centris-A.

Nadeshiko fall2400.png


  • Rank: Civilian
  • Duty Post: Analyst
  • Age/Species/Sex: 1-year-old Coppelius Android Female
  • Birthplace:

Nadeshiko was first activated as a remnant of the Epsilon Program in SD2392, 7 years after the synth ban put into place as a result of the attack on Mars. At the time, Starfleet Science argued that stricter programming limitations were put on the few remaining AI matricies, and that beings such as the Doctor had proven that self-aware AI could be trusted to not turn murderous. In 239210, she was deactivated as the anti-synth faction in SF Command, led by then-Commodore Oh managed to shut the revised project down, and her body was disassembled. Her matrix was successfully saved, but consigned to deep storage.

In late 2399, when the origin of the attack was discovered, the United Federation of Planets revoked it’s internal treaty, and a new body was assembled, as a new prototype of the Coppelius androids, this time built by the Daystrom Institute. While Nadeshiko was successfully activated, her twin Sakura was not. As her AI was originally inclined towards serving as an AI of a starship, there were immediate problems with integrating her matrix with the new body, and even after they resolved, the future of the Epsilon Program seemed to be sealed. However, as there was still some alarm on Earth and Mars, Nadeshiko asked if she could be sent to another installation to work as a science analyst. Correspondingly, she was dispatched as a member of Daystrom under a program from Starfleet Science, and sent to Amity Outpost.
