- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 210 lbs
- Hair: Dark brown; short but wavy.
- Eyes: Black
- Build: Slim
- Skin Tone: Pale
- Scar Tissue: A mass of scar tissue around the knee from the transporter injury.
- Carriage: Genkos has been walking with a cane for over ten years, so he is used to it. His gait could probably be determined as swift but limping.
- Off duty clothing: Genkos has a fondness for darker colours - dark greens and blues for instance - that he usually demonstrates in his nehru-style jackets, which he often pairs with a sash of a contrasting colour, thin linen-like trousers, and loafers. Always paired with a cane.
- Voice: Genkos' voice is quite deep and comes across as stern, which he counteracts by smiling generously. He frequently utters the phrase 'in good faith' - a Betazoid expression.
- Handedness: Right
Genkos had a caring nature as a child. His father, a veterinarian, introduced him to biology, his first passion. Couple that with his natural empathic powers and you have a caring young man, yearning to explore the stars.
This dream was contorted however by an horrific transporter accident that left Genkos without a left leg below the knee, leaving him reliant on a cane for mobility. Beaming up to the Sunfire, a cargo ship, Genkos arrived without his lower left leg. He now has a cybernetic calf and foot. The cane is almost entirely psychosomatic. Genkos then threw himself into his medical degree, burying himself into the study of Medicine in all its forms, sacrificing any social life for the craft. He joined the Starfleet Academy after achieving his MD, and soon found himself rather isolated from the rest of his class. His empathic nature meant he knew that people found his manner brusque and rough. He softened over the years at the Academy, humbled by several professors' attitudes towards medicine.
A laugh comes easy to Genkos, and he likes to amuse others as well. Although he can tolerate other people disliking him, he will do his uttermost to make others like him. Like most Betazoids, he has very few boundaries when it comes to personal information, which he volunteers easily. However, he is prone to feeling his own mistakes deeply, and will go to any lengths to absolve them.
Hobbies & Pastimes
- Academia: As a Doctor, Genkos believes in constant education and re-education and as such reads and researches the constantly developing world of modern medicine.
- Music: Although he cannot play an instrument, Genkos does enjoy listening to all sorts of different music from ancient Terran music by the likes of Elton John, to classical Betazoid works by Asubrel Ta.
- Golf: An old Earth pastime that his father brought back, golf is Genkos' preferred form of exercise.
Likes & Dislikes
- Utta berries: Genkos' favourite flavour
- Green Tea: Genkos' favourite drink
- Showers: Genkos likes to reflect in a long, warm shower.
- Fauna: As the son of a vet, Genkos is fascinated by fauna in all its forms, and loves to visit zoos, safaris and zoological reserves.
- his Leg: Genkos is incredibly insecure about his leg
- Transporters: Genkos still holds a deep anger towards transporters over the loss of his leg, and refuses to be beamed anywhere. This is changing after the shuttle crash on Trill, and now Genkos hates both methods of transportation
- Introductions: Shaking hands with a cane is always slightly uncomfortable, and Genkos severely dislikes the looks that people can give him when they first meet. The fact that he can feel their sympathy doesn't help much either.
- Tribbles: "Scourge of the universe" - Genkos Adea
Father - Tillul Sim
Personality/Appearance: A semi-retired veterinarian on Genkos' home planet Betazed, Tillul Sim is a tall, slim and incredibly personable Betazoid male. Tillul was born in 2335, making him about 60 years old.
Time on Earth: Tillul has a fondness for old Earth music, especially Elton John. This stems from his time training on Earth, where he met his first wife, Fumiko, now deceased. Tillul also grew a fondness for the Earth sport golf, and brought back a set of clubs when he returned to Betazed after the death of Fumiko. He trained in New York City and had lived with a little old Yiddish couple, whose vernacular has slipped into both his and his son's own speech. It was recently revealed that Tillul had murdered Fumiko after meeting Laxe. He had fallen out of love with her, and when she refused to let him leave, he forcibly pushed her down the stairs outside their apartment. He has been given life imprisonment on Betazed.
Relationship with Laxe: Laxe Adea is the second wife of Tillul Sim, and she believed until recently that they had met after Fumiko's "accidental death". In actual fact, Fumiko did not die until a few months after Tillul and Laxe met, and Laxe was already pregnant when Fumiko died. Tillul murdered her, and made it look like an accident. Laxe recently discovered this when Genkos eliminated the mental block his father had placed in him.
Relationship with Genkos: Genkos helped his father in the surgery practically every day until he went off to the Academy, although sometimes he would raid the 'medicinal' alcohol. Whilst Genkos had been growing up Tillul had taken him camping on a local island every summer, and when Genkos was a teenager, Tillul inserted a mental block into his son's mind, which Genkos has only just discovered. These trips were a favourite of Genkos, although this ended when Genkos lost his leg. It was to aid Tillul in surgery aboard a starship that Genkos lost his leg, and Tillul holds some guilt over the incident, and as such created Genkos' first cane from a tree in the family's back garden. When Genkos graduated, Tillul handed him a bonding gift which contains something that Genkos will apparently need in his darkest hour. Tillul had opened the box that his father had handed him on the day Genkos had lost his leg, and it contained a battered veterinary textbook, which he supposed was to remind him of his chosen course in life. This incident had also further deepened Tillul's atheistic tendencies.
Mother - Laxe Adea
See Laxe Adea
Otherwise known as the littlest pup, Toto is Genkos' dog, a grey Weimaraner. They met aboard the Njörðr, when Genkos rescued him from a burning laboratory. Carrying him throughout the burning wreckage of the ship, Genkos was thrilled when Aleksandra offered him to him. Toto is an enthusiastic soul, who is a very loving dog. He often forgets he is as large as he is, and can often be seen curled up in corners, or acting in Genkos' holoadventures.
Genkos has a few different canes, for different uses/situations.
- His primary cane is made of from the branch of a sadi tree that grew in his parents' back garden, Tillul Sim crafted it for him after his accident
- Another is his dark hardwood cane, with a derby handle. Genkos tends to use this at dinners or other situations where he might need to be sat down for periods of time, as the handle hooks easily onto the side of a table.
- A third cane he owns has a chrome plated handle, which was originally a hame - the handle from a horse saddle. It has a twisting, carved design on its ash wood stick, and is perfect for the outdoors. This cane was destroyed in the shuttle crash on Trill.
- Genkos has a entirely metal cane for use in sterile environments in sickbay.
- Ferier Kian recently carved Genkos a beautiful hardwood cane as a gift, which has become one of Genkos' beloved possessions.
- Genkos had a sword cane created for some of his holosuite adventures, especially his Christiesque murder mysteries.
- His fanciest cane; a thin black piece of darkwood, with a silver dog’s head on top. The resemblance to Toto was striking, which is why he had chosen to buy it when he and Ghant had gone antiquing in the streets of London.
- Genkos was given a box with a painted smile on by his father. It contains an unknown object, but it is a family tradition in the Sims to give a gift that will help in the owner's hour of need.
Apart from a strict medical degree on Betazed, Genkos also has some field experience of veterinary medicine, gained from his time helping his father in the surgery. Whilst at the Academy, Genkos majored in Medicine completing courses in; Bedside Manner, Medical Ethics, Clinical Fundamentals, Immunology, Diagnosis in both Major and Minor species, and one module on Psychiatry and Mental Health. During prep week, Genkos had an unpleasant encounter with Lurith, the Romulan instructor, which has given Genkos some, as yet, unresolved issues. Due to this, he could have flunked out of the academy, if it weren't for the support of Vulcan Medical Ethics professor, Dr Faa.
For Genkos' full transcript, see Genkos Adea/Transcript
During the two week prep squad session at the start of his training at the Academy, Genkos was put through his paces by a particularly unpleasant Romulan, Lurith. Lurith forced Genkos to repeat the obstacle course without the use of his cybernetic calf. It took Genkos three hours, but he managed to complete the course, despite Lurith's constant beration. Whether or not this encounter has given Genkos a permanent dislike of Romulans has yet to be seen.
- Dr. Faa
The Medical Ethics professor at the Academy, Dr, Faa was a key figure in Genkos' development. After his encounter on the obstacle course with Lurith, Genkos had been on the verge of giving up, but it was the stern but fair Vulcan logic of Dr Faa that pulled him back in. She began the first lecture of every module with the question "If you could have any superpower what would it be?", to which Genkos' answer was always "Telekinesis".
A young trainee at the Academy, Genkos and Ghant engaged in a whirlwind romance lasting a few short weeks. They later reconvened aboard the Gorkon.
Aboard the Gorkon
Genkos' quarters aboard the Gorkon are on Deck 2 in a larger senior officer's suite than his previous quarters on deck 8. Apart from the usual furniture, there is a cane rack next to the door. He also has a set of crystal decanters which he keeps topped up with sapphire wine.
Arrival (239502.07 - 2385902.17)
On arriving aboard the Gorkon, Genkos was thrown straight into the deep end. Meeting Yiggtissi on his arrival in sickbay, his first duty was to stabilise the recently wounded Tasha MacFarlane, and once she was stabilised, he helped to heal the Saurian's shoulder. At the close of shift, he went to his quarters for the very first time.
Shore Leave - Cloud Skipper, Palanon (239502.17 - 239504.14)
With the business aboard Starbase 173 completed, the Gorkon crew were given shore leave on the pleasure cruise ship, the Cloud Skipper. At first Genkos visited the spa where he met with Tasha MacFarlane, Ayiana Sevo, Sasak and Petra Bjarnadottir-Stoyer, after which he visited the on-board nature reserve with Ovidia Rosicia. Returning to the Gorkon, he carried out Eerie's annual physical exam, after which he was embarrassed when interrupted dancing. After this, Genkos, Yiggtissi and Tali Namura created and attached MacFarlane's new forearm, an operation which Genkos carried out with Yiggtissi's assistance. They then ran a battery of tests on the new arm to test its capabilities, after which Yiggtissi, Namura and Genkos had a meal together in Sickbay's Crew Lounge. After the shift, Genkos had a shower in his quarters before visiting the Gorkon's bar, Sto'Vo'Kor, where he bumped into Yiggtissi and Xanti Ilas Ysa Liss. The next day, Genkos went to the awards ceremony in the Wardroom where he saw Admiral Reynolds for the first time, before having a drink with Orson Marshall and Eerie, during which he witnessed the return of Nugra to the Gorkon.
Mission - Hvei'khenn (239504.14 - 239506.07)
Genkos was attached to the team sent to the Administration Centre to help with the protesting Romulan citizens. With Eerie, Ayiana Sevo, Tasi, and Alucard Vess, Genkos met with Governor Khaveid and entered the facility. After a heated discussion with the Governor, Genkos and Eerie were sent outside to talk to some of the protesters, but with an storm incoming, and with tempers running high, the decision was made to move everybody indoors. Once inside, Genkos helped the others disperse care packages, but an antagonist encounter with Dhisuia got Genkos reprimanded by Sevo, Vess and the Governor. Back in the conference room, their meeting was cut short by the announcement that a beating was occurring on the floor above. It was Dhisuia, the woman who had called Genkos a cripple who was being beaten up. Whilst Eerie and Sevo stopped the violence, Genkos gave first aid. However it was not enough, and he, Vess and Tasi stayed to stabilise her whilst Eerie and Sevo went off to get supplies. They had to re-inflate her lung, fix a pelvic fracture and stop a hematoma, which was made considerably easier when Eerie and Sevo returned with medical supplies.
Shore Leave - Trill (239506.07 - 239508.13)
Arriving back from Sikuna, Genkos tried to relax with a game of golf on the holodeck before carrying out Ferier Lanta's annual physical, as well as Davine D'fini's examination on her arrival on board the Gorkon. Consumed by guilt over Dhisuia's beating, he called his parents for some advice. He was then invited to dinner with Yiggtissi and his family. On his way there, he was flown down to the planet by Crewman Roshier Jackson. He shared his shuttlecraft with Tasi, with whom he had a long conversation about Genkos' actions on Sikuna, Lurith, and Genkos' general mental health. He then had an incredibly pleasant dinner with Yiggtissi, his wife Innouasag, and his daughter Jainnoirra. During the crew's camping trip, Genkos spent an evening around the campfire with Groznin Smith, Caedan Nkai and Sera zh'Aella. That evening he had a dreadful nightmare that brought all his fears together. The next morning he breakfasted with Jainnorra, then they met with Davine D'fini to go the zoo together. However, the rickety shuttle they had boarded crashed, killing the pilot, Magna Vugnis, who was impaled on half of Genkos' cane. Genkos lost his cybernetic leg, but D'fini and Jainnorra had only minor injuries. They were swiftly rescued and twenty-four hours later Genkos was back in his quarters on the Gorkon with a new biosynthetic leg, where he met with Davine and they discussed the aftermath of the crash, before heading to the mess hall for dinner. The next evening, the penultimate on Trill, Genkos was promoted to Lieutenant (JG) and received his first task from the new CMO, Yiggtissi - conduct a report on the efficacy of changing the standard medkit. After the Gorkon set off, Genkos carried out a routine check-up on Valesha Sienelis which was distinctly uncomfortable for him, as she is a Romulan. However, it made him start to see the Romulans from a different light.
Mission - Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This (239508.13 - 239511.14)
For details of what happened in the Dream State, please see Genkos Sim/Skarbek In order to try and escape the Dream State, Genkos joined minds with Erin Reynolds in an attempt to contact the conscious mind of Admiral Quinn Reynolds. Although she was able to tell them their real identities as Starfleet officers, she was unable to help them wake up. After leaving them alone, Genkos explored Erin's mind revealing her real identity and personality, and then she did the same to Genkos. In doing so, she unleashed a psychic block that Genkos was unaware of that had been placed there by his father Tillul Sim. Before he could process that, he woke up in Shuttle Bay 2 with Lt. (JG) Smith and Lt. Marshall, and tried to investigate an accident that had occurred therein. Before long he was called to Sickbay to carry out a successful spleen replacement on Caedan Nkai with the aid of the EMH.
Shore Leave - Palanon (239511.14 - 239602.05)
After performing the operation, Genkos left his patient and took a shower, which was interrupted by the EMH. Returning to his quarters, he called home, and discussed the revelation of the psychic block with his mother. He also sent a brief message to Erin Reynolds to discuss their mental connection, before bumping into Tali Namura and going to Sto'Vo'Kor with her. They had a meal with Xanti Ilas Ysa Liss, after which Genkos returned to his quarters. He then received a visit from Ferier Kian who asked him for advice over his relationship with Emilia Krugol and also gave him a beautifully handcarved cane. Not long after, Kian visited Genkos in sickbay with very low isoboramin, and together they shared flashbacks to one of Kian's past lives in the Dominion War. Still on duty in Sickbay, Genkos was visited by Cory Stoyer after his accident on the holodeck, as well as Nakura Nightfur for her primary checkup. His telepathy still wildly out of control, Genkos received training from Kel Baina to maintain his mental block, training which is still ongoing. Soon after, Genkos hosted a party for the medical staff in Holodeck 9, the highlight of which was Genkos and Tali Namura carrying Corliss Fortune back to her quarters, a little worse for wear. Back on duty, Genkos carried out a routine check-up on Groznin Smith, before visiting Corliss Fortune and describing the betrayal he felt by his father's actions. At the end of shore leave, Genkos attended the party held on the outer hull, at which he was promoted to a full Lieutenant, and made Chief Medical Officer.
Mission - The Njörðr Incident (239602.05 - 239603.22)
Genkos was carrying out research on Rushton's aboard the USS Njörðr when it was struck by an odd subspace nebular that caused the gravity to shift, and Genkos was thrown to the ceiling. It was aboard the Njörðr that Genkos first met Joan Basilone and Carmen Tis as well as the littlest pup, Toto. It was a tense and horrific experience, but Genkos managed it with their help and that of Jo Marshall. Severely injured by the end of the mission, Genkos was rushed into the USS Yarahla's sickbay for a series of operations.
Shore Leave - Deluvia IV (239603.22 - 239605.18)
After recovering from his injuries aboard the Yarahla, Genkos was gifted the young puppy Toto by Ensign Aleksandra Yashkin (with whom he later spent an unforgettable evening), a puppy he has had ever since. After speaking to his mother about her new boyfriend, and her recent name change, Genkos decided to change his own surname, Sim, to his mother's name, Adea. Although it is Betazoid tradition to take a maternal surname, his father had spoken passionately about his dying family name, and that's why he was called Sim. He met with Joan Basilone and her friends on the surface of Deluvia IV, before going back to his quarters with Aleksandra. Back into the swing of things, he carried out checkups on Jang, Joan Basilone, Samira Neathler and Kyrrha Tereen, as well as attending appointments with Corliss and Kafkazet. He also met up with his romantic partner, Kel Baina, several times whilst on the surface. He had heartfelt conversations with Erin Reynolds and Groznin Smith, the first about their mindmelding aboard the Skarbek, and the second about the recent departure of his son.
Mission - Operation Sea Devil (239605.18 - 239607.23)
After a briefing on the Gorkon, Genkos was assigned to his first away team as leader. He was put in charge of Stoyer, Neathler, and Tereen. They took a shuttle craft down to the asteroid Nassau, where their mission was to capture the Orion Syndicate boss, Leelou. After renting a hotel room to utilise as a base, Genkos sent Stoyer and Neathler to the market to find materials for a neutralising device that Tereen was building. However, Genkos and Tereen were interrupted by a drunk Gorn, who they fought into unconsciousness, and fled down the fire escape. Reconvening in a bar named the Copper next to the Vortex, Leelou's base, they formed a plan of attack. Genkos and Tereen sneaked into the back of the club, surprising Leelou, and managing to subdue and capture her as a team. Escorting her back to their shuttle became tricky however, and they got into a gunfight near the docks. Thankfully, a well placed shot from Stoyer took her down, and they managed to get her back to the Triumphant without further issues. Arriving at the Triumphant, however, Genkos discovered that Jo Marshall was severely injured, and he stayed by her bed until they could reach the Gorkon. She was also visited by Caitríona Cayne, the Gorkon's new medical ensign, with whom he had a heartfelt conversation, which was crashed by a critically injured Groznin Smith.
Shore Leave - Earth (239607.23 - 239609.30)
Genkos began his shore leave, after recovering from Nassau, by taking part in a shuttlecraft recertification course. Unfortunately he was unpleasantly surprised to see that the pilot was none other than Ghant Xerix, the man he dated, albeit briefly, at the Academy. As they had not left things in a good position, the meeting was heated, and resulted in Ghant beaming Genkos into Sickbay, an act that made Genkos feel extremely angry and violated. Once safely ensconced in his office, he met with Caitríona Cayne to discuss her performance on Nassau, and carry out her first medical exam aboard the Gorkon, before finding an apologetic gift from Ghant left on his desk. This only served to make him angrier as Ghant was accusing him of hiding his identity with his name change. However, receiving two medals and a promotion to Lieutenant Commander quickly put paid to those feelings. He had a brief, but he hopes helpful, chat with L'rann who was suffering from survivor's guilt. Back on shift in Sickbay, he aided Tasha MacFarlane when she was having troubles with a sluggish arm, caused by a rogue bone chip. They were interrupted by Ghant and Kyrrha Tereen who had been sent by the Admiral to Sickbay as punishment for a brawl that had gone too far. It gave him a perverse sort of pleasure to meat out boring and / or difficult tasks to them both, but Ghant in particular. He had a debrief with Cory, who was very complimentary about his time on Nassau, which Genkos appreciated. As it was his first away mission, he was anxious to know how it was perceived. Thankfully, it was overwhelmingly positive. Returning to his office, he was visited by a surprise guest - Erin Reynolds. She had seen Ghant at the medal ceremony, and wanted to make sure that Genkos was okay. He was deeply touched by her concern, and they had a Deep and Meaningful Chat about the state of his and Ghant's relationship, whilst getting steadily (and unsteady) more sloshed on sapphire wine. They quit Sickbay, and ended up in her quarters, where Jo found them late that night giggling into their Bajoran brandy. On leave to Earth, Genkos engaged in a holoadventure with Tasha, Ayiana Sevo and Toran Sevo, Caitrona Cayne and Rhone. They engaged in a Terran medieval swords and sorcery programme where Genkos played as a cleric, with Toto masquerading as his protection. Genkos and Ghant decided to bury the hatchet after meeting with each other having both deciding to apologise, but the conversation was a little derailed after Ghant revealed that Genkos was his first love. Returning to Sickbay, Genkos fiddled about with the workings of his leg with the new Ensign Loxley whilst they discussed their limitations and the biosynthetic field. Genkos decided to make a grand(ish) gesture as an apology to Ghant, and so arranged to have tea with the man. He had a short drink with Groznin in which he suppressed his own conflicted feelings about Ghant, and instead comforted Groznin on the defection of his son to the Klingons. Ghant and Genkos rekindled their romance in a tearoom in London, albeit agreeing to take it slowly, and then almost immediately waking up together in Genkos' bed. They opened up to one another and their relationship blossomed. So much so that Laxe caught them in flagrante delicto, which resulted in Genkos and his mother talking again, as they had been silent to one another since Laxe had stormed out of a rehearsal for Julius Caesar. Ghant later opened up about the death of his cousin Choupette, and the custody battle for his niece Victoire. He was later invited to a game of pool with Quinn and Jo at the Foo Bar in San Francisco, where, after sharking him at the game, they offered him the role of Second Officer aboard the Gorkon, which he gratefully accepted. However, he had not expected to have that new role taxed so soon, but he witnessed a communique to Ghant suggesting that a ship named the Grace would soon be attacked. Despite Ghant's protestations to the contrary, Genkos spoke to the Admiral and told her about the communique behind Ghant's back, a move he came to regret when Ghant volunteered to tell the Admiral himself on the way to her wedding. Arriving at the wedding, the two parted, and Genkos sat in the corner drinking a Terran beverage known as champagne. He sat with Corliss and Loxley, sneaking into the kitchen to grab a chocolate beverage. When Ghant sang a song, ostensibly about his relationship with the good doctor, Genkos shattered a glass in his grip and was sent home. The next morning, he discovered Ghant in bed with Caedan Nkai. Genkos immediately left the room, and was distraught for two days, seeking solace from his mother, as well as from his friends Jo Marshall and Erin Reynolds.
Aboard the Juneau
=== Mission - Project Capstone (239510.28 - 239601.22)
Genkos served as the Chief Medical Officer on the USS Juneau during its test flights of the Warp XV Engine. After meeting the various department heads, and Nurse Selina Masterson, Genkos began doing the primary medical check-ups on various members of staff, including Ghant Xerix (with whom he had a frank discussion about their recently dissolved relationship), Tiria Hamsaki, Samira Neathler, Toryn Raga, Alastriona DeTroyes, and Kelrod. Geoffrey Teller called him into the Brew Continuum after suffering minor burns from an exploding piece of coffee apparatus, where they were interrupted by the FO, Kiliak Jo who remonstrated Teller for managing his franchise instead of being the Chief Engineer. He began a rebounding relationship with the Juneau’s resident FNS reporter, the stunning Georgette Lamaelle, with whom he had several memorable evenings. He was involved in a short incident when a surveillance device was located in his office, after which he had a brief meal with Kiliak in the Mess Hall. Later, he was dispatched down the starboard nacelle to deal with the fallouts of injuries caused when an energy discharge attached itself to a pylon, joining Kelrod in his investigation of the phenomenon. Investigating a suspected tampering incident in Environmental Support with Sienelis, Johns, Kelrod and Hyden led to them accidentally detonating a hidden bomb. Genkos thankfully managed to save the young ensign, a young Iridian called Dhawan, who had been the closest to the blast point. The Iridian was badly burned, but through quick thinking and improvisation, Genkos managed to stabilise him before they were forced to move deeper into the ship to prevent any further explosions. His final “mission” aboard the Juneau was a response to a distress signal aboard the Vulcan passenger ship, the SS Ascent Vine. Genkos was initially charged with triaging their passengers, but was swiftly moved to aid Fleet Commander T’Kosa who was suspected to have been poisoned. Before he could do too much however, he and the rest of the team (Sienelis, Johns and Peters) were beamed back aboard the Juneau in time to observe the detonation of the asteroid field. This caused the destruction of the Ascent Vine and also seemed to be the deaths of the 6,000 Vulcans aboard, but it was later revealed that they were all saved by the Orion Syndicate. They were all later released, with the exception of Fleet Commander T’Kosa...
Back Aboard the Gorkon
Mission - Together in Electric Dreams (239609.30 - 239611.26)
After being taunted by the Q for his savagery and lack of care as 'Kos, Genkos awoke in Sickbay. He quickly established a triage for the numerous medical emergencies that sprang up before heading to the bridge to help cure Jo Marshall's radiation sickness which, like all effects of the Q, dissipated quickly.
Shore Leave - Giáng Sinh (239611.26 - 239702.29)
Genkos returned from the Q-verse a broken man; he swore off alcohol to distance himself from ‘Kos Sim, as well as ensuring stubble never graced his face. The brutal murder of a Cardassian that he had committed in the Q-verse haunted him - the smell of the blood, the rush of adrenaline and the feeling of flesh giving way beneath his fists all kept replaying in his mind. He wrote up his resignation, umming and ahhing over whether or not to send it to the Admiral.
His return to duty was fairly eventful - in the rush of the fallout of the Q’s actions, he had completely forgotten about the evacuation drill he had scheduled with Jona ch’Ranni. However, T’Hal, Naiara Franklin, and Loxley did exceptionally well evacuating the sickbay when the drill occurred, with the help of James Colquhoun. Unfortunately, Genkos’ insistence that he be the last to leave cost them precious seconds and they missed the standard time by five seconds. When this was pointed out to him by ch’Ranni in their debrief,Genkos grew quite defensive and considered it worth it. He was upset by ch’Ranni’s words, and worked through the night, falling asleep in his office.
He then had a counselling session with Corliss, but with a twist - they entered one of the counselling holodecks and shared a round of golf as they spoke. Genkos found it rather beneficial to keep his body occupied whilst they talked.
He later made his way down to Giáng Sing, the suddenly snowy outpost. He took Toto for many walks in the snow, because the littlest pup was fascinated by it, although he wasn’t so little any more. He bumped into Jo Marshall, and they spoke about Caedan Nkai’s upcoming birthday party, as well as their shared experiences in the Skarbek-verse, whilst they walked towards the central area with Christmas decorations and grabbed some food. He was later joined by a reticent Kyrrha Tereen, with whom he discussed the mechanics of the Q’s machinations, at least until Cory Stoyer showed up and whisked her away. After making Genkos vomit copiously whilst thinking about ‘Kos Sim, of course.
Finding a bench to people watch, Genkos called over Quinn Reynolds with whom he had a fairly long conversation about her family, the situation with Ghant, the return to the Skarbek, pets; his relationship with her AU self, Erin Reynolds; and the vagaries of command, as well as briefly, Over There. Then, to break the tension, he asked her what superpower she would have, and why; Genkos chose the ability to fly and Quinn agreed. Taking another walk through the frozen tundra with Toto, he decided to call in on Corliss and the three of them went for a pleasant stroll, talking about the morale of the crew.
Back on the Gorkon, and in Sickbay with Loxley, Genkos was present for the arrival of Andorian daredevil, Oshrav th’Uhnian, who had foolished careened into a rock during the biathlon. His injuries were severe, but Genkos and Loxley fixed him up swiftly and with great care before retiring to Genkos’ office, where Genkos blindsided him about the Ensign’s feelings for Fortune. Genkos’ advice was to go for it; and he feels like he has a vested interest in the couple ever since.
Back in his quarters, Genkos had a discussion with his old mentor, Doctor Faa, over subspace. He was seeking reassurance about his abilities as a doctor, something the Vulcan was not terribly forthcoming with.
Not feeling quite up to it, but knowing he’d feel bad if he didn’t go, Genkos approached Caedan’s party with trepidation. He opened with a chat about the birthday boy with James Colquhoun, which was eventually joined by Tali Namura’s brand of wit and Ayiana Sevo. James excused himself to get another drink, whilst the two women went so Ayiana could confess her attraction to Caedan, leaving Genkos alone to surprise Corliss, Loxley and Jhyrazhao who had hurried into the clinic to warm up the underdressed counsellor. This then lead to a lot of energetic dancing with the Aenar diplomat.
The next day, Corliss dropped by the Sickbay for a sensible check-up, and Genkos did the introductory medical examination for the newest member of the crew, Mikeja Lan.
Mission - Serpent Heart, Flowering Face (239702.29 - 239704.27)
After a briefing in the Conference Room, Genkos took a shuttle down to the polar research station on Væron with Cory Stoyer, Piravao sh'Qynallahr and Eloise Moran. There they met Caldor, the portly Romulan scientist who was in charge of the station who explained that the wildlife they were studying was demonstrating huge increases in aggressive behaviour. He showed them a cage of marill mice, a normally peaceful species, who were ripping each other to shreds, the survivor feasting on the remains. As they explored the base further, they came across a giant window that gazed under the sea, where they were first examined by, and then attacked by, a large three-eyed fish that radiated hatred. After its initial attack against the glass, the dugong-like creature swam away and they continued downwards. Arriving in an observation chamber, they were able to rescue a scientist under attack from a couple of kukek beasts, and had her beamed up to the Gorkon, but not before she beamed an image into Eloise's mind. During the rescue, Cory was somewhat insubordinate to Genkos' orders, mistaking his actions and then attacking him for them. Genkos took him aside once they were safe and had a word, and then they also took a sample of waste matter and kukek corpse, and had those beamed up for study. Following the scientist's image, they made their way to the submarine bay, opening the moon pool and preparing a submersible. Caldor appeared in a distressed state, and was devoured by the fish. Shaken, but unhurt, the team descended to the bottom of the sea, discovering a bubble of air and a distress signal. Inside was the beacon that the scientist had shown to Eloise, and the culprit responsible for the deranged animals. At such a distance however, it was more potent, and Genkos' father's mental manipulations caused Genkos to fall under its spell, and he went loco, attacking his team with a ferocious range of blows. Mercifully, Piravao managed to suppress the beacon's effects, and Genkos returned to normal. They also found the distress signal, the remains of a submarine containing the corpse of a Romulan scientist, the components of which the cannibalised to create a bomb powerful enough to destroy the beacon. They returned to the submarine and got out of range before beaming up to the Gorkon.
Shore Leave - Væron (239704.27 to present)
Gorkon Senior Staff
Genkos' first formal encounter with Quinn Reynolds was when he was promoted to Lieutenant (JG) at the ceremony on Trill. He then had several (uncomfortable) meetings with her when the crew were convinced they were in the Maquis, and that she was their prisoner. He did however fight to try and save her life after she was beaten to within an inch of her life, before joining with her and her "sister" Erin Reynolds to try and find a way out of the dreamstate. He hasn't spoken to her about the experience as he's nervous about what she might say.
Genkos didn't really know Jo Marshall before they were thrown into the maelstrom of the Skarbek experience. They worked closely together, evacuating medical staff and interrogating the captured Quinn Reynolds. He then woke up with her and Groznin Smith aboard the Gorkon, and they sought to uncover the events in the Cargo Bay. Shortly after everything returned to normal, Jo brought Naktara Nightfur to Sickbay for her initial medical checkup. He enjoys Jo's sense of humour, and thinks she's a worthy First Officer. They became much closer after having clambering their way through the topsy turvy Njörðr.
Genkos was thrown into a battle situation with Cory when they were dropped into the Skarbek dream state, and as such trusts the man implicitly. When they came back, Genkos fixed three ribs and a hairline fracture that Cory broke on the holodeck, trying to forget about his troubled love triangle. Genkos offered to lend an ear, but Cory has yet to take him up on it. Genkos likes Cory, but thinks he sometimes needs to follow his head and not always his heart. Cory's self awareness when coming up against Leelou (specifically when it came to his vulnerability to her pheromones) was refreshing to see, and Genkos was very pleased to lead him in that away mission.
Genkos met Samira at the Hull Party after the Skarbek dream state, and was not impressed by her judgemental attitude towards their counsellor, Corliss Fortune. His attitude towards her softened on Nassau as she proved herself a capable officer who challenged him just the right amount.
Ayiana Sevo helped train Genkos before his assignment to the Gorkon. They socialised briefly in a hot tub on the Cloud Skipper, and they clashed over Genkos' behaviour on Sikuna. Genkos was glad when she was removed as First Officer, as he believes her temper is detrimental to her ability to act in that role.
Genkos first met Corliss at a party he hosted for the medical staff in one of the holodecks. He thought she was sweet, if a little bit of a lightweight. He and Tali helped carry her back to her quarters when she felt a little bit worse for wear. However, he visited her in her role as ship's counsellor and found her an excellent listener, so much so that she became the first person he told about his father's horrific actions. He bumped into her and Tali again at the Outer Hull party, where they formed a tipsy medical reunion. Genkos is very fond of the diminutive counsellor, and enjoys her company, both professionally and personally.
Other Gorkon Staff
Genkos first met Caedan during shore leave on Trill, where he shared a campfire chat with Nkai, Groznin Smith and Sera zh'Aella. Returning from the dream state, Genkos designed, created and inserted Nkai's new spleen, which was damaged during his attempts to wake everyone up. He kept a close eye on the recovering Nkai, and was very pleased when he was promoted to Lt. Commander.
Genkos only seems to bump into Xanti in Sto'Vo'Kor, where he appears to be a permanent installation. He found him intimidating at first, but has warmed to him.
Genkos was served by Toran when he acted as a barman at the party on the outer hull. He found him brusque and threatening.
Genkos shared every single part of his life with Erin, and she with him, during their attempts to escape the dream state of the Skarbek. It is a fraught situation they find themselves in, knowing everything about one another. They had a discussion about their relationship, which was honest and emotional.
Genkos carried out a medical checkup on Valesha, which he used to try and explore the woman's culture. After the incident on Sikuna, Genkos realised he had hangups about Romulans from his academy experiences with Lurith, and he wants to overcome these.
Genkos has a close working relationship with Tali, and enjoys her sense of humour. They've worked closely on a number of cases, and tend to gravitate towards one another when at social events.
Kafkazet is Genkos' physiotherapist, and he can never gauge what the Zaranite is thinking, or if he even likes him.
Genkos is ever so slightly scared of the Klingon bartender.
Former Gorkon Staff
Genkos first bonded with the large Brikar when Lt. Commander Eerie had his annual check-up. His reluctance to have the check-up, coupled with his wry sense of humour made a strong impression on Genkos, who enjoys Eerie's company. His presence on the Sikuna mission provided Genkos with physical and mental reassurance.
Genkos carried out a routine medical checkup on Ferier Lanta (as he was then) after the Sikuna colony mission, clearing him for active duty. They were both promoted to Lieutenant (JG) in the same ceremony, and when they returned from the Skarbek dream state, Ferier Kian (as he is now) gifted Genkos a beautiful cane that he had carved for him. It has become one of Genkos' most prized possessions. Genkos gave him some advice about dealing with the Kian symbiont's behaviour prior to be joined with him. They later shared experiences from one of Kian's past lives when the perfect storm of Genkos' lack of telepathic control met Ferier's lowered isoboramine levels. He and Ferier are very close, and Genkos would consider him one of his closest friends.
The former senior medical officer aboard the USS Gorkon, Lt. Yiggtissi was the first member of the crew that Genkos met. Impressing the Saurian with his jumping into the hectic aftermath of the events aboard Starbase 173, Genkos enjoys the company of his Saurian colleague, and they frequently share dinner and drinks. On Trill, Genkos was even invited to dinner with Yiggtissi and his wife & daughter. Their shared history in the Skarbek incident gave them a bond that will never be broken, and their relationship is akin to brotherhood.
Genkos' relationship with Freymott is strained, possibly because the woman cannot remember his (or anyone else's) name, and because she's more interested in people after they're dead. He sees her as a bit of a joke, finds her laughable. However, after she got his name right on the Yarahla, he has come to respect her abilities as a doctor.
Kel was teaching Genkos Betazed meditation techniques to help control his telepathy, but their relationship developed into something more physical. They don't particularly want to put a label on what they had.
Genkos bumped into Groznin during the camping trip to Trill, and sat with him, Caedan Nkai and Sera zh'Aella chatting and generally getting to know them. They received their promotions to Lieutenant (JG) at the same time, and then, when in the dream state on the Skarbek, it was an examination of Groznin that led Genkos to believe that they were all asleep. He woke up next to him and Jo Marshall when they returned to consciousness, and the three of them investigated the Cargo Bay together. Groznin brought Cory into sickbay when he was injured in a holodeck accident, and soon after came in for his own checkup. Genkos noted that according to his dopamine levels, Groznin was in love, which led to a frank discussion about romance and Smith's own medical knowledge. Genkos likes Groznin, and is charmed by his boundless optimism and enthusiasm, even if they are only for all things Groznin.
Genkos' very first assignment aboard the Gorkon was to treat Tasha for hypovolemic shock caused by the loss of her forearm. He joined her in a hottub with Ayiana Sevo and Sasek. Genkos then designed and built her prosthetic arm with help from Yiggtissi and Tali Namura. He and Tali also helped her begin to get used to her new prosthetic. Genkos is impressed by Tasha's resilience, and feels a little solidarity as someone who is also missing a limb.
Genkos thinks Kyrrha is a very intelligent officer, who is talented and capable. She was fantastic to have on his away team on Nassau and he was very proud when she received various medals for that mission. He is also fascinated by her from a medical point of view as the Vulcan-Klingon hybrid is very rare.

Awards & Service Ribbons
|Awards and Service Ribbons|
- Prantares Ribbon - Presented by Quinn Reynolds: “From the moment he arrived on the ship, Genkos Adea left a deep impression on everyone around him — though sometimes he wished he hadn't! A throwaway comment on a Romulan colony had terrible consequences, and became one of the formative incidents in this medical officer's career as he tended to the aftermath. It's something that he still refers to now, and it's wonderful to see how his early experiences have and continue to shape his character. We have had the pleasure of watching him grow from an inexperienced young ensign into a skilled department chief, the writer expertly weaving Adea's skills and abilities into the story when the spotlight is upon him, all the while supporting other members of the crew to ensure they have their chance to shine, too. A recent mission is a fine example of this; when his team were infected with the deadly Rushton's Disease aboard a broken and failing ship, he made sure that their quest for a cure provided plenty of opportunities for non-medical members of the team to have some fun. It was very well done; a delight to read and I know a lot of fun to sim, reminding us all exactly lucky we are to have him as our Chief Medical Officer!"
- Pathfinder Award - Presented by Quinn Reynolds: "One of the things that stands out the most about Elliot in a mentoring role is how genuine and dedicated he is in his desire to see other people succeed and enjoy themselves. His advice is full of insights, offering clear and useful feedback to help those simmers under his care, prompting them to develop strategies and think about the way the sim comes together. All of this is done with kindness and good humour, and it's telling that some of the most glowing nominations have come from those who have benefitted from and are grateful for his mentoring assistance. As so, for his care and commitment to mentoring, we are delighted to award the Pathfinder Award to Genkos Adea"
- 2020 SOTFA Ship Commendation - As Second Officer on the USS Gorkon, Elliot — the writer behind Genkos — has risen to a new challenge in a dynamic environment. He is a dependable and reliable simmer, going above and beyond the call of duty in his characterisation efforts, and bringing a spark to a scene that is unique. His work behind the curtain has seen him dedicate his time to mentoring efforts, provide a friendly face and good advice to those who need it, all with a hefty dose of the good old British humour. In addition, Elliot is consistently active in the Training Team and Publicity Team, ensuring the fleet is publicised across the internet, helping to bring those new faces into the community and champion UFOP in every facet. His enthusiasm is commended here and we look forward to what the next year will bring for him! Thank you for everything you do, Elliot!
