About the Writer

Lieutenant Commander Jocelyn "Jo" Marshall is a party-hard, mellow and strange Human currently serving as the First Officer aboard the USS Gorkon, the flagship of the Tyrellian Defence and Exploration Taskforce. The USS Gorkon is her first posting outside of Starfleet Academy and her Cadet Cruise. Life on the fringes of space between three factions of the Galaxy has not been an easy undertaking, to say the least. Jo has put as much of herself into the ship as possible, which includes, but is not limited to, blood, sweat, tears, and the occasional shared beer smooshed into the Cargo Bay deck plating.


Height: 1.72m (5'8)
Build: Athletic, Lean
Hair: Dark Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Length of Hair: Long, Shoulder Length, Usually tied back
Skin Tone: Lightish
Birthmarks, Scars, Tattoos:
Three-inch scar on left bicep from elbow crease upwards.
Moderate scar on right side of her forehead from hairline.
A scar about the width of three fingers on her left shoulder just above her collarbone from a disruptor burn.
Brushstroke circle tattoo over her left shoulder. Brushstroke around left shoulder
Taste in Clothing (when off duty):
Open flannel shirts, jeans, old military style pants, vintage band t-shirts, boots that should be cleaned more often, canvas trainers, jumpers.
Vintage black jacket from Earth with United Kingdom patch on the arm. Prized possession.
Voice: Mainly English accented, though can have Bajoran inflexions on certain words. Voice is quite gravelly. She speaks fluent Bajoran and slips into the language when she feels like it.


Temperament: Doesn't take herself very seriously, prefers to break tensions, will argue her point as good as any. When faced with a challenge, she'll play hard and play to win. Has a dark sense of humour and speaks sarcasm fluently. Resourceful and always trying to think a step ahead. Optimistic, not naïve. Tells outrageous jokes. Feels connected to music. May seem disorganized sometimes, but there's a lot going on in her brain. A strong hearted loyal friend. An undeniable smartass with a kind soul.
Dislikes: Time wasters, small talk, grudges, inactivity, failing.
Carriage: When busy, she walks with purpose, a woman on a mission. When relaxed, casual and slowed down a notch. Matches the speed of anyone she's walking with as she does tend to walk quickly without realizing it.
Mannerisms: Crosses her arms and chews on her lips when thinking. Leans on one leg or on a nearby surface if she can get away with it. Runs her hands through her hair. Kicks her boots up on desks wherever possible. Has her hands in her pockets when feeling relaxed. Tends to high-five and fist bump people she likes.
Quarters: Kept tidy, as much as possible, with a variety of personal effects. A Springball usually around somewhere she throws about when thinking. Holoimages of her family, friends, Academy Decathlon team and her Bajoran Springball team are on her desk. Her motorcycle is currently parked in the corner. The Admiral knows.
Hobbies: Plays Springball, restores vintage motorcycles and cars, listens to all kinds of music from everywhere. More on her Hobbies and Pastimes below, if you're interested enough.
Religion/Spiritual Devotion: None of note, though she tends to lean toward Bajoran spiritualism when times are tough.

Ambitions and Goals

Aspirations: Not an overly ambitious person, Jo is happy doing her thing and contributing to her ship as much as possible. She serves under a great Rear Admiral she thoroughly respects and can't see herself anywhere else in the near future. As for goals, making it to 2396 would be nice.
Achievements: Achievements are not something Jo tends to collect many of - usually forgoing accolades for anything in return for a beer in a quiet bar where shenanigans can commence. The proudest moment of her life, and one she stuck around long enough for was graduating from Starfleet Academy in the top Engineering bracket for her year. Living in the "other universe", and surviving it, with the help of friends and the Yarahla Nine is definitely up there with those achievements and life wins she has stashed away in her mind. While the year forged friendships and bonds like no other, it was still tough going and brought Jo to the brink of some questionable thoughts. She doesn't have too many disappointments of note, yet, which might possibly be more to do with her optimistic nature than actually skimming the wings of a setback.


To see all the exciting relationships Jo has made in her short time on the USS Gorkon, or to know exactly who has the patience to put up with her singular brand of lunacy, go to the Full Article: Relationships

Like one would collect Springball player stickers, Jo collects people. That's not to say she reduces them to a two-dimensional state and glues them into books. She is a happy, party-hard Officer, and loves spending time with the people she truly cares about. She will encourage anyone to do some kind of karaoke on shore leave, or dance naked in the Trill forests while eating a taco. Approach with caution.

Significant Other

Martital Status: Single.
Partner/Dating: Erin Reynolds


Offspring: None that she's aware of.


Mother: Robin Marshall
Father: Luther Marshall


Older Brother: Orson "Bear" Marshall
Younger Brother: George Marshall

Likes and Dislikes


Springball: A hangover from her days playing professionally for Bajor, she tries to find new players to practice with or strong-arming her friends into a game.
Mechanics: Engineering projects on the sidelines include maintenance of a Terran motorcycle and car that she enjoys taking out when they get chance.
Tiny Plants: A recent addition to her hobby list is cultivating seedlings from the Science Labs. She hasn't broadened her horizons past growing one at a time yet, out of fear she'll kill them all.
Meditation/Yoga: When she needs less noise and more centering, she quiets her mind with meditation and yoga.
Athleticism: She has maintained the habit of keeping fit from her days of professional sports and holds it a big part of her lifestyle, including cardio training and weightlifting.

Food and Drink

Makapa Bread: A Bajoran foodstuff usually consumed as a breakfast meal. She can eat this at any time, in any place, with the crust - a childhood belief it would make her terribly straight hair curly. Spread with jumba jam, it's like a slice of toasted heaven.
Coffee: Self-explanatory for a Starfleet Officer. When "Over There", during rationing, she weaned herself off the beverage, down to one mug a day. It destroyed part of her soul.
Hasperat Soufflé: Another Bajoran dish from her childhood home usually made with whatever fruit was in season. If you want to get on her good side, bring her a soufflé with cream.


Losing Friends and Family: In the grand sense of the word, Jo is afraid of her friends and those she considers family dying, in action or otherwise. After suffering so much loss during their "Over There" time (see: Annus Horribilis, Part 2), she keeps her friends close to her heart. You would think it would be a catalyst to do the exact opposite, but she's never been one to conform.
Small Spaces: Jo was involved in a mining collapse during her apprenticeship on Volan III. The roof of the cave came down during an earthquake, burying the young woman under the rock and shattering her shoulder - the result of which was pulling out of professional Springball. She also suffered the fatal curse of the first mission Ensign Panic Attack™, in which Ayiana Sevo managed to bring her out of before she let herself out of her EVO Suit and became one with open space.

Personal History

Before Starfleet

Growing up on a colony was one of the benefits of being a child of two Starfleet Officers. Jo was born on a starship, then raised on Volan III after the Dominon War.

Her parents were deployed as part of Starfleet's ongoing efforts to maintain the demilitarised zone and repair some of the damage that had been caused during the occupation of Bajor. Many Bajorans that Jo encountered had first-hand experiences of the war and what it had done to their home and people. Growing up among adults that had seen the end of a war, witnessing many of the problems the Dominion had caused, formed Jo into a well-rounded individual from a young age. Seeing the end of the occupation meant a return to Federation standards of living and the Bajorans cultivated the colony to thrive.

Jo enjoyed many pursuits in her young age, including travelling throughout the planet, mountain climbing, surfing and diving, as well as the national pastime of Springball. Once she got a taste for the game, and the intricacies of shots, she was hooked. Playing throughout her school years and through her teenage life, sports and studies kept her busy. She was often seen running from one campus to another with her Springball glove or part of a machine she had disassembled from something. When she could compete on the tournament circuit, she started running competitions professionally, playing for Volan III at the championship matches held throughout the galaxy, giving her the chance to see the universe outside of her home.

There was the initial option of prolonging her foray into professional sports, however, a mining collapse halted her progression due to a dislocated shoulder that was not easily remedied. Seeking something to keep her mind busy, she turned her attention to her other great love - Engineering.

The interest in engineering she had taken started from a young age, under the influence of her mother and father, both Engineers in Starfleet within specialised fields. Her mother enrolled her in a part-time apprenticeship as she started her middle school years, working for the large mining operation within the mountains. On finishing school for the day, if there wasn't a sports practice, Jo would grab one of the worker shuttle transports to the mines and begin shadowing one of the many mining engineers, usually Bajoran. Within a few months, she had picked up the Bajoran language and could work without the Universal Translator. She was a hard worker, being both focused and driven to finding new ways of accomplishing old tasks and new solutions to recurring problems.

Given her first motorcycle at fifteen, the first thing she did was take it apart to see how it all worked, before putting it back together and going for a spin up the mountain paths. This only fueled her drive to find bigger problems, bigger engineering tasks, in which only Starfleet could offer.

Enlistment in Starfleet

After her enlistment into Starfleet Academy, Jo was a capable Engineer from the start and learned quickly. She chose to Major in Engineering, specifically Warp Theory, and minor in Operations to coincide with her abilities to multi-task, effectively making her a humanoid multi-tool.

Taking on board her experience and talent for the work, she was deployed to the Fleet Operations Center to carry on her training while working on emerging technology in the field of Operations. Working tirelessly to prove herself in the Academy's arena, she became one of the leading Engineers in her graduate year; a moment she is very proud of. Upon completion of her Cadet Cruise, she requested deployment to Starbase 118 Fleet.

Arriving on the USS Gorkon mid-mission (see: Annus Horribilis (Gorkon), the crew transport Jo was on hurtled through a fissure in space and arrived with the ship on the other side of an alternate universe.

They rescued who they could from the alternate USS Triumphant; battled the Jem'Hadar fleet; persevered through months of rationing and cannibalising abandoned vessels for supplies; losing crew members to raids and away team missions, and finally getting home after forging an uneasy alliance with the Romulans.

Jo is still feeling the aftershocks of this misadventure, as are many of her friends and colleagues who survived, and it will no doubt have a bearing on her life in the future.

Mission Archive

A detailed repository of all missions Jo has participated in while stationed on board the USS Gorkon.
Click the mission tiles below to expand or collapse summaries.
Annus Horribilis - Stardate 239301.21 to 239304.03
The first mission Jo found herself on after being thrown through a fissure during a crew resupply. The ship was supplanted into an alternate universe where the Dominion had won the war, meeting up with the crews' alternate selves, and fighting for a way to get home.
Annus Horribilis, Part 2 - Stardate 239305.11 to 239309.07
A continuation of the previous mission, also known as the "Year of Hell" to those serving on board the USS Gorkon at the time. Sustaining heavy damage in various ship battles, without the option of repairs and refits, Jo was seconded into Main Engineering to help the ongoing effort of keeping their Sovereign-Class starship afloat. Raids, rationing, and regular thrashings from the other universe Dominion, it was a trying time, however it forged friendships that would last a lifetime.
A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing - Stardate 239311.1 to 239312.25
Newly posted to the taskforce in the Tyrellian Sector, the crew were tasked with routing out the Orion Syndicate influence that had ceded the government and protecting the Chief Prosecutor from harm. Dodging and unexploded "bomb", getting shot at by an old-style turret, then threatened by an Orion "slave girl" who turned out to be a mobster, it was a rather eventful mission for Jo she won't soon forget.
Old Hatreds - Stardate 23940318 to 239404.10
Hosting a diplomatic conference on the USS Gorkon between the Romulan Star Empire, Romulan Republic, Klingon Empire and the Tyrellians, something was bound to go wrong. And, surprisingly, it did! Quinn Reynolds was attacked, a bomb exploded in the conference room, and Jo found herself trying not to rip out sections of the USS Triumphant's Operations chair while playing war games with their taskforce colleagues.
The Silver Function - Stardate 239405.25 to 239407.12
Escaping a radiation storm that would have made them all a little less than alive, the crew dove into the depths of Leutra IV to find that not only was there a living spider organism machine network running beneath the surface, but that a Ranger contingent, the 451st to be exact, had been stranded there during a mission. It was during this escapade into the weird and wonderful that Jo met her best friend Sera zh'Aella, who came riding into battle on the back of a mechanical spider wave, taking a chunk out of one of them with her bare teeth. Suffice to say, they were friends immediately.
The Devil's Expanse - Stardate 239409.17 to 239411.01
On the bestie's first day as the Helm Officer, Sera zh'Aella did something which caused the Quantum Slipstream Drive to switch itself off mid-flight, throwing the ship into the nebula known as The Roman Expanse. A network of electrical storms and bad tempers, the nebula quickly rendered their ship powerless and incapable of escape. As luck would have it, the zoo-keepers for a large energy sucking creature decided it wasn't feeding time, and were preventing the ship from gaining back power to stop them all from becoming a starfish omelette.
Telutho'kai - Stardate 239412.28 to 239502.09
Jo doesn't remember much of this mission, apart from transporting to their Operations Centre and finding it more derelict than a Vulcan comedy club. From there, she kind of "phased out" of being, reappearing hours later with the rest of the Starbase 173 crew, shivering, hypothermic, and lacking an explanation as to where she had been. Unfortunately, another Marshall happened to be trapped in the same frozen fissure and has since made her life a little less bearable.
Hvei'khenn - Stardate 239504.15 to 239506.08
The colony of Sikuna was in the throws of a storm, a virulent sickness outbreak, and a lot of protest problems, requesting Starfleet assistance. Transporting down to the surface, Jo was part of the Away Team that were tasked with trying to repair the Verteron Array and get it back up and running for Federation science collaboration. Instead of doing that, they found a D'deridex class warbird underneath the Science Facility crewed by a strange mix of Andorians and Romulans, as though they'd teamed up for the kicks, and took the warbird out for a joy ride.
Sweet Dreams Are Made of This - Stardate 239508.14 to 239511.15
Waking up as a member of the Maquis Resistance cell on the Skarbek, Jo remembered nothing of her real life and instead, memories and friendships were replaced by recollections of a life lived under Dominion occupation of the DMZ. Resisting a Cardassian attack on their home of Outpost Schulman, and managing to escape on the raider, things went from bad to worse when they discovered they were trapped inside a dreamweb concocted by someone on the outside. When finally they broke free from the dream, with memories still haunting their real lives, they discovered the Trill known as Lladre had hijacked the ship and kept them under for hours, despite their recollected lives of years spent as someone else. Lladre escaped, taking with her something stolen from the ship. It's all a mess.
