Nilsen is the third child of Harold Nilsen, a farmer and Moganie Thompson, a social worker, Nilsen was born on Gault, a small farming colony in federation space. Nilsen has a keen interest in rugby and motorsport.

Traits & Personality

Nilsen has been described as sociable person, who is easy to get along with. Nilsen enjoys positive relationships with the majority of his crewmates. He enjoys a close friendship with Toxin Arlill, his current roommate and the two after often seen together working on some kind of project. Nilsen is known for the boundless amount of energy he seems to possess.

However despite this, Nilsen is still haunted by an shuttlecraft incident in the academy. This has lead to him sometimes second guessing his choices and to lack of confidence in his own abilities. If Nilsen does make a mistake, he will immediately take steps to correct it, however this can lead to a certain obsession over the mistake and a single-mindedness mindset to correct it.

As a HCO officer, Nilsen is highly competent in his work.

When explaining details surrounding engines or shuttles, he may rely upon references to cars and automobiles from earth from the late 20th century to the early 21st century. This is somewhat of a specialist topic for him however the reference are often lost upon others.

Personal History

Lhandon Joseph Nilsen was born and raised on the peaceful farming colony of Gault. He is part of a large family with six siblings. His curiosity about the outside world grew as he observed the comings and goings of starships during supply deliveries. As he got older, he discovered a natural talent for operational matters and keeping things organized on the farm, taking on administrative duties, logistics, and managing supplies. This lead to a love of space and as soon as he was able, he signed up for Star Fleet, he heard of the Rozhenko’s adopted son doing the same thing decades ago but was fuzzy on the details. During his training, he excelled in Operations but faced challenges with academic subjects like PHYS101 and BIO101. However, his exceptional operational skills and ability to keep things running smoothly more then made up for this. Lhandon was taking a major in helm and navigation with a minor in communications and operations

However, Lhandon's dreams took an unexpected turn during his second year at the academy. During a training flight in the Kuiper Belt, as part of "Tactics: Combat, Shuttles and Runabouts" his shuttle lost control and collided with another, resulting in a devastating crash into an asteroid. Lhandon escaped with a broken ankle, but the other pilot was left in intensive care for several months. The incident nearly led to Lhandon's expulsion, and rumors spread throughout the academy. In a bid to salvage his career, Lhandon made a difficult decision (read: was forced to) to drop his major in Helm/Navigation and focus solely on Communications/Operations. Though skilled at Ops, Lhandon couldn't shake his deep desire to return to the helm, and he quietly harboured the hope of one day getting to fly again.

Nilsen's current posting is as an Helm, Communications and Operations Officer on the USS Oumuamua

USS Oumuama

Nilsen's first posting out of the academy was to the USS Oumuamua, there he has been working hard in the lower decks to erase the mark left on his record by the incident in the academy. It was in the 2400 that he met his roommate Toxin Arlill who he affectionately refers to as his "broroomy." On Stardate 240008.03 Commodore Ossa V'Airu invited Nilsen to take the helm station. She was witnessed as saying "That officer didn't make up my mind for me. I believe you deserve a chance." in response to Lhandon's worries about this sudden posting.

Nilsen: You’ve read my file? You saw that crash report? They said…the commander, my old instructor said I should never fly, he said that he’d tell every captain, every XO, every commander that I will ever have.

Any joy that Lhandon had felt was replaced with one of worry as the words of his old instructor started to replay in his head.

V'Airu: (with a brief shake of her head) That officer didn't make up my mind for me. I believe you deserve a chance.


Lhandon and Kei'ran circa 2395

Nilsen enjoys an overall positive relationship with his family and was closest to his younger brother Kieran. Most of the family live on or near the farm, but Lhandon is the first to leave the planet for an such an extended period of time.

However, after Lhandon joined Starfleet Academy, his younger brother Madison left home and secured a role in law enforcement on Deep Space Nine. Lhandon's younger sister Isabella has expressed an interest in following in Lhandon's footsteps and maybe planning to join Starfleet.

Lhandon will try to get a message back home when he can, and enjoys the massive data drop he gets when all of the family will send their messages in one bulk transmission. It goes without saying that his family are proud.

Emilia Nilsen (Age 24)

Emilia Nilsen is the creative and outspoken member of the Nilsen family, known for her passionate opinions and artistic pursuits. She expresses herself through both painting and song. Emilia is an outspoken critic of Starfleet and her concerns can be summarized in five key points:

  1. Centralization of Authority: Emilia argues that Starfleet's role in diplomacy, exploration, and law enforcement has grown to the point where it wields significant authority and decision-making power, potentially overshadowing the autonomy of individual planets and governments within the Federation.
  2. Military Concerns: She raises questions about the militarization of Starfleet, particularly in times of conflict. Emilia is wary of the potential for Starfleet to become overly militaristic, overshadowing its original mission of exploration and peaceful cooperation.
  3. Cultural Imperialism: Emilia is concerned that Starfleet's presence can sometimes result in the imposition of Federation values and culture on non-member civilizations, potentially eroding the uniqueness of various societies and their traditions.
  4. Resource Allocation: She questions whether the extensive resources allocated to Starfleet could be better used to address societal and humanitarian issues within the Federation, particularly in areas of poverty, healthcare, and education.
  5. Accountability and Transparency: Emilia advocates for greater transparency and accountability within Starfleet, emphasizing the need for oversight and checks on the organization's power to ensure that it aligns with the principles of the Federation.

Interests & Hobbies


Lhandon is a passionate enthusiast of sports cars spanning from the late 20th to the early 21st century. This interest significantly influences the way he perceives and describes starships in flight. For instance, on one occasion, Nilsen compared the USS Centris, a Nova class training vessel, to an MX5 sports car—a type of ship that, according to him, could perform sideways drifts around an asteroid field simply by kicking the nacelles out.

The USS Oumuamua is a ship that Lhandon gets on very well with, and she is a ship that likes him back. Lhandon is yet to find a car that is synonymous with the Oumuamua.

When he able to get onto the holodeck, Lhandon's favourite program revolves around a professional drift championship. Within this program, there is a particular mode that engages the player in a thrilling one-on-one drifting competition. In this adrenaline-pumping race, speeds soar above 100 mph, and participants maneuver their cars with utmost precision, sometimes coming within inches of each other. If Nilsen forms a strong bond or friendship with someone, he warmly extends an invitation to that person, welcoming them to experience the exhilarating program,


Lhandon found a passion for rugby after moving joining Starfleet Academy. His height and build made him well suited for the game. He found himself well suited to a forward positioned as a "Prop," with a preference for as the "Tighthead Prop"

On stardate 239706.25, Nilsen collided with another player and suffered a broken nose.
