|Service Jacket: USS Invicta &
After spending nearly a year on the USS Garuda, he was ordered, along with the rest of the crew, to transfer over to the USS Invicta, a ship dedicated to science and diplomacy in the Menthar Corridor. He wasn’t overly fond of the idea, as he hates transfers. Shortly after they had transferred, their security chief Evan Delano had performed a mind-meld with Harrison Ross. Both men wound up in sickbay and in comas, with Evan developing Pan’ar Syndrome as a result. CD also had a nice chat with Saveron and Raissa Moonsong regarding his own abilities, gaining temporary shielding and adapting them to his needs in addition to finding out what changes in his genetics had been triggered by Ris’ telepathic contact to the away team during his last mission. It wasn’t long after that in which he found himself in the ready room of Captain Aron Kells and received a promotion to Lieutenant Commander. During that conversation, he also explained how he became telepathic in an effort to get better acquainted with the man, who expressed an interest in learning about the crew he didn’t know or couldn’t remember. Re-evaluation of his telepathic and empathic abilities reveals a new rating of T4/E6, courtesy of a test administered by Saveron. Somehow in between the test administration and the launch, Chythar paid a visit to Lieutenant Alora DeVeau and somehow found himself back in First Kingdom Peppelaxia to chat with the queen who seemed ready to give birth. Once he returned to the present time, Alora offered to run a few tests and took a sample of his blood. Just before they embark on the maiden voyage of the USS Invicta, the crew watched as Fleet Captain Cassandra Egan Manno presented the awards from the last mission.
After a brief stop at Starbase 118, Skyfire had a brief reunion with his adopted brother, Lt. Commander Sal Taybrim. After an evening of pizza and windsurfing, he headed over to the USS Columbia with Devlin to get settled in. Once aboard, he met Captain Nugra and Counselor Talia Kaji on the way to check in. Once at the XO's office was reunited with his old friends Lt. Commander Brek and his mentor Lieutenant Johanna MacLaren. Brek had mentioned two colleagues who were both residing in sickbay: Captain Benjamin Livingston and Lt. Commander Vitor Silveira, both of whom CD had previously served with aboard Ops and the Excalibur. While attending his first party aboard the Columbia, Brek received command of the ship and was promoted to the rank of Commander. CD recognized only one more face from the Excalibur's former crew, that of his friend and mentor Johanna MacLaren. During the same party, he ran into some of his students from the academy: Antero Flynn and Mirra Ezo. During this shore leave, he also met with Counselor Talia Kaji for the first time, and tried not to begin another streak of breaking counselors.
