|Crew of the USS Astraeus|
|Lt. Commander Cadfael Peters|
His relationship to Leland Bishop is that for now, they are acquaintances. After an already bad day, he encountered Mr. Bishop outside the Back 40 and the two exchanged words. They struck up a possible beginning to a friendship during the awards dinner, and Leland offered to cook at some point for him and Ayiana.
Relationship formed after their mission, during which time Cadfael used some ingenious engineering to bring the Sunak weapons online despite hearing loss. After the mission, he was promised a drink by the lieutenant commander. During that conversation, Cadfael discovered he likes Andorian Ale, but if left to his own devices he will either pass out from excess or land in sickbay if he doesn't have a drinking buddy.
Acquaintance status formed during Never Mix Your Drinks but never actually took off. He does have a slight crush on Richard, though to up and leave without a word has somewhat lessened Cadfael's attraction. Twice.
Pen Pal & Friend
Former Captain & Friend
Upon first meeting the Gorn captain, the human discovered he didn’t like toothy smiles because they made him nervous. Apparently, his performance during his first full mission was sufficient enough on the reports from several people to get the captain’s notice. Thus resulting in a random happenstance that got him promoted to chief engineer. When he later learned of the Gorn captain's death, Cadfael was saddened to hear it.
Former Counselor, Friend & Wingman
Cadfael got clocked in the face and temporarily lost hearing in his right ear before he met Vance on the promenade. A subsequent counseling session with the man for his annual evaluation led to Cadfael and Vance joining forces in a night of camaraderie and drinks, becoming fast friends. The first attempts for the counselor to play wingman involved Cadfael made an awkward pass at Vance, which was followed by two marks. The pass was quickly forgotten and they headed to another bar.
Friend & Matchmaker
Pon Pon and Cadfael met during a temporal anomaly on the USS Dunbar. They reunited when Cadfael transferred to the starbase. The physical was a little bit awkward due to the doc landing on his chest, but it was quickly resolved. Afterwards, the two engaged in a bar crawl in which Pon Pon decided to take it upon himself to play matchmaker for the engineer.
His friendship with JC began when both men served aboard the USS Victory. They saw each other in passing, and occasionally hung out together. JC is introducing Cadfael to the concept of scuba diving in their off time, and they were separated for a time when Cadfael went to serve aboard the USS Darwin-A. To Cumar's surprise, he was the one sent to retrieve the engineer when it was known that he was coming to the starbase.
They met shortly after Vondaryan was assigned to Ops, though it wasn’t until the the Vissian’s promotion they actually became acquainted. They had a quiet drink or two during shore leave and didn't really socialize much outside of work.
