Lt. Commander Ayiana Sevo

Childhood & Teenage Years

The Yorval Estate on Trill

Ayiana Yorval grew up in Najana City on Trill. It was a coastal city notable for its many pristine beaches, and the location of the famed Najana Library; one of the most extensive archives on the planet. As a child, her parents often took Ayiana and her sister Aleesia to the library and museum. It was these trips that first instilled a love of science in the young Trill. Ayiana spent many days playing or relaxing on the beach.

Ayiana initially had no desire to be Joined, but she was a very intelligent girl. During her teenage school years, one of her teachers thought she should apply to be Joined, due to her excellent grades and inquisitive nature. Ayiana thought it over for some time, and along with her parents’ support, she applied to the Trill Symbiosis Commission.

With her newfound interest in becoming Joined, Ayiana had to strive harder than ever to prove herself. Reaching adult age (roughly 18 Earth years old) she was accepted to the satellite campus of Starfleet Academy at the Trill Science Ministry. Ayiana would be the first host of Sevo to join Starfleet.

At the age of 23, she spent a few weeks being evaluated under a Joined field docent. She was given a good recommendation and was accepted for Joining. It took nearly a year find a suitable Symbiont to match her with. In the meantime, Ayiana continued her studies at Starfleet Academy. The symbiont Sevo shared a similar interest in the sciences - one of its previous hosts was a chemist. Upon the death of Sevo’s third host, it was transferred to Ayiana at the start of her final Academy year at the age of 24.

Ayiana attended the campus of Starfleet Academy located on Trill, on the grounds of the Science Ministry. While most classes were taught by teachers, they supplemented their curriculums with hololectures from the main campus on Earth. Ayiana would be the first host of Sevo to join Starfleet.

She had not yet decided on a major by her second year at Starfleet Academy. During a practical exam, her team's experiment went wrong. Ayiana had to take charge of her team and quickly fixed the problem. Afterwards, one of her favorite professors, Professor Inaki - himself a Joined Trill - urged her to study multiple science degrees, knowing she had a knack for math and science; even suggesting command someday, based on her budding leadership skills. He also pointed out that more degrees under her belt was a better chance for being selected for Joining.[1]

During her time at the Academy, Ayiana joined the swim team, earning 2nd place in the 800-meter length, and 1st place in the 400m. She also made contact with Cadfael Peters on Earth through the Cadet Cultural Exchange Subspace Friend Program.

Stardate Synopsis
239108.11 - 239110.07 The Victory of the future warns of a coming apocalypse.
Ayiana arrives at the remote location of the Victory.
Within her first hours on board, Ayiana was assigned to help defeat the imminent Hunger Invasion. During two subsequent excursions, Ayiana discovered that the science behind the Hunger automatons' communications was similar to, but not derived from, the Borg Hive Consiousness. Using this knowledge, Ayiana was able to develop a means of disrupting their signals.

After the Hunger Invasion, Ayiana was promoted to Chief Science Officer, filling the recently vacated post. She felt she was too inexperienced and shy for such a demanding position and felt extreme stress and anxiety.

239111.10 - 239201.05 A Cardassian ship has had an incident with a new species. What will Victory do?

Assisted in the search and rescue of the Cardassian ship Nuvek and First Contact with the Sunak.

During the mission aboard a Sunak water-filled vessel (they were aquatic beings), Ayiana was rendered comatose from an electrical overload. It was discovered that her brain had high activity yet she failed to react to outside stimuli; in essence, she was comatose but cognizant. With no options left, Lt. Commander Talia Kaji performed a dangerous telepathic probing of Ayiana. She discovered that the accident manifested buried psychological trauma in the Sevo symbiont; severe claustrophobia is one symptom. By walking through Ayiana's fractured mind, Kaji managed to repair the link between Ayiana and Sevo.[2] This act created an unusual, and not fully understood, telepathic link with Ayiana and Talia. While small, only prevalent around a kilometer or so, the pair can feel what each other are feeling, and sometimes thinking. The physiological process is not well understood.

239202.01 - 239202.23 The Victory embarks on a joint mission with the Duronis II Embassy to construct a scientific outpost on one of their outer planets. The mission is interrupted by an unusual singularity that cripples both the Victory and the Thunder.

The crew of the USS Victory had been through a lot in the past months and it looked like karma was on their side when the Intrepid-class ship was assigned to the Embassy of Duronis II for a temporary science mission for the Laudeans. Their first order of business: a promotion ceremony for Toni Turner and Nugra to Rear Admiral and Captain, respectively. In the few months that Ayiana had served under him, she had grown to respect, if not fully understand, the Gorn.

The ceremony was followed by a joint mission with the Embassy staff to the nearby planet of Luxis III. She was temporarily assigned to the Embassy's starship, the USS Thunder-A to help the Laudeans survey the ocean world, and potentially install an undersea research base. They had barely managed to smooth out the logistics and engineering hurdles with their Bolian submarine when something happened: the sudden appearance of a strange anomaly in orbit. The anomaly emitted an extremely powerful electromagnetic pulse-like effect that devastated both the Victory and Thunder. Ayiana, onboard the Bolian submarine ship headed for Luxis III was instead diverted to assess the damage to the Victory. In the end, the ship had to end up being towed back to Sol. At this time, it was unsure if the Victory would be repaired or scrapped.

While the Victory underwent a major refit at Utopia Planitia, Ayiana took a vacation to Earth, stopping at Spacedock before heading on to San Francisco. She spent the next few days touring the city, learning about Humans and Earth, and relaxing on the beach.[3]

239203.13 - 239205.03 The Victory crew, temporarily in command of the USS Achilles, embarks on a mission to a Romulan Republic colony to recover stolen vials of a dangerous virus.
Ayiana loses her temper; the first of many to come.
With the USS Victory docked at the Utopia Planitia shipyards for her refit, the crew found themselves commanding the prototype starship USS Achilles and her unconventional Artificial Intelligence Thetis. This mission saw the crew race to the Romulan Republic planet of Temlaiyhari, where they would attempt to retrieve a set of stolen vials of the Skyfire Virus, presumably stolen by dissident Romulans. While the away team she was a part of was searching a hidden research laboratory, Ensigns Lael Rosek and Janel Tarna were taken captive by unknown persons. Ayiana was the first to reach the location of their capture, but arrived moments too late. To make matters worse, the Romulan commander T'lak brazenly accused Starfleet and their lax performance for the kidnapping of the officers. In a burst of rage that Ayiana had never before experienced, she lunged for T'lak, punching him in the face before she was able to be restrained. For the next few days, she was furious with herself for hesitation and unskilled in combat. When the opportunity arose to rescue the pair, Ayiana jumped at the chance. Along with Lt. Tarsii Asmara, Ayiana was able to find and rescue Rosek and Tarna, as well as recover the stolen vials of the Skyfire Virus.

Following the mission, a letter of reprimand was placed on Ayiana's record for the assault of T'lak. Despite this, Ayiana was bewildered when she was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant.

239205.18 - 239207.12 A long lost Starfleet vessel has been detected and close to an unfriendly government. The newly-refit Victory is sent to recover it.
The newly-refit Victory.
Ayiana's last mission aboard the Victory saw her commanding her first away team to the recently rediscovered 23rd-century Starfleet ship, the USS Arrow. It had disappeared near Tholian space almost a hundred years ago; no one knew why, though the Tholians were suspected. Commander Eerie and Lt. Sevo led separate away teams to the ship, lost in an asteroid field. This was no coincidence, as the Tholians had purposely set adrift the ship in this field due to the field's unique characteristic of blinding sensors. The Victory could not tell that it was an ambush until it was too late. While Ayiana was on board the Arrow, with the help of Crewman Shedet, she managed to download much of the ship's information about its mission and the experimental Tholian web weapon that crippled it and killed the crew - the same weapon now used against the Victory.

Afterwards, Ayiana made it to the bridge of the Arrow to try and gain control of the ship. Unfortunately, the bridge had been commandeered by the Tholian 1st Lt. Takil and his loyal Chakuun soldiers. Ayiana was prepared to attempt diplomacy with them when the Tholian force abruptly left, apparently getting what they came for. To Ayiana's further bewilderment, just before they left, one of the Chakuun soldiers gave Ayiana a datachip containing a copy of the data they found - information regarding their experimental web.

A few weeks after the mission, the Victory is once again recalled for further refits following flaws that cropped up during the mission. The crew of the Victory is transferred to the newly-commissioned USS Gorkon under command of Captain Quinn Reynolds.

Stardate Synopsis
239208.08 - 239209.17 The USS Tharsis, an Oberth-class vessel and one of the ships assigned to Peaceforce Five as a science and survey vessel, has become trapped in a gravity well. The Gorkon arrives to help, but finds the crew's minds twisted - they believe themselves hunters, and the Gorkon crew their prey.
Ayiana swims through water-filled Jefferies Tubes to save her crewmates.
The first mission of the Gorkon saw Ayiana and the crew respond to a distress call from the science ship USS Tharsis. The Gorkon sent several away teams to different parts of the ship to ascertain the problem. Ayiana was assigned to Captain Quinn Reynolds' team, which was sent to the bridge of the Tharsis. Very early into their investigations, the away teams discovered that the crew of the Tharsis had set numerous traps throughout the ship; a result of rampant paranoia caused by an accidental infection of parasitic Sarpedionital Gondii. Further, the ship had been saturated with disruption fields, preventing the away teams from detecting anything with sensors. Ayiana managed to program her tricorder to detect these fields, giving her away team a little warning. At one point, Reynolds' team, including Ayiana, had been trapped in a Jefferies tube junction that had been rigged to fill with water; intending to drown its victims. Ayiana pulled on her childhood swimming skills and volunteered to swim down into the depths to find a way to release the trapped away team.[9] Successfully draining the water, Ayiana regrouped with Reynolds' team, only to find them at gunpoint by paranoid Tharsis crewmembers. She successfully managed to disrupt the energy of their phasers, allowing Reynolds' superior melee team to overwhelm the Tharsis group. The reserve crew of the Gorkon managed to penetrate the dispersion fields of the Tharsis and beam the away teams back aboard, along with the infected Tharsis crew; eventually managing to cure them of the parasites. The entire medical division, along with the away teams, including Ayiana, received a Medical Science Ribbon for their efforts.

239210.25 - 239212.18 A celebration turns into a murder investigation when a Cardassian diplomat is found dead during the Gorkon's awards after-party. Trapped inside a sabotaged holodeck, will they be able to find the murderer, while keeping themselves and their guests safe?
Ayiana's Victorian costume.
Shortly after the Gorkon's return to its regional homebase of Astrofori One, the crew were honored with their first awards ceremony within one of the station's many holodecks. The ceremony had been designed to replicate a 19th-century Earth Victorian mansion, with period-specific attire. Ayiana found it very difficult to wear the heavy and outlandish dress human women of the era wore. Even more, the ceremony was attended by all manner of Starfleet brass, as well as press and foreign dignitaries. As Ayiana was not fond of social gatherings, she was having an exceptionally hard time with the event.

It was during this event that a sinister plot by the Maquis Reborn was hatched. They assassinated the Cardassian Ambassador to Astrofori One inside the holodeck during the party. They had also sabotaged the program, preventing anyone from accessing holodeck controls, exiting, or even contacting the outside world. During the crisis, Ayiana was able to use materials from inside the program to create fire, reigniting the fireplace and torches.[10] Once the Gorkon crew managed to escape the holodeck, she was part of the team that was sent to rescue Cardassian hostages within the Cardassian Embassy.

239301.21 - 239304.03 While studying a nebula with strange transmissions emanating from it, the Gorkon is pulled into an alternate reality where the Dominion won the war and the Federation is destroyed.
The Battle of NGC 201502
Early into 2393, while studying an unexplored nebula, the Gorkon was presumed lost with all hands. In actuality, it had slipped through a quantum fissure and traveled to an alternate reality where the Dominion won the war. Shortly after arriving and confirming their location, the Gorkon came across the USS Triumphant from that reality. It was crewed by a ragtag band of former Starfleet officers, civilians, and refugees who spent their time avoiding Dominion patrols. What was remarkable was the fact that it was crewed by several doppelgangers of the Gorkon crew or their associates, including Karl 'Walter' Brunsig, their Captain; Quinn 'Erin' Reynolds, their quirky Engineer; and Erik Jansen, doppelganger of Alucard Vess and their nominal Chief Science Officer.

The Gorkons arrival was not unnoticed, however, as a small fleet of Dominion and Cardassian ships soon arrived in the nebula and attacked the pair of ships. The battle had been going well, up until the Triumphant had been sabotaged from the inside by Erik Jansen, who felt that his odds of survival were higher on the Dominion's side. Fortunately, he had given enough time for the Triumphant crew to evacuate to the Gorkon before it self-destructed. Jansen managed to escape to one of the Dominion ships and warp away during the confusion. The battle was not without consequence, however, as all the weapon energies in the nebula caused the quantum fissure to destabilize and collapse, trapping the Gorkon in the parallel reality.

After they had warped away from the nebula and tended to their wounded, Ayiana had a shocking encounter. Toran Sevo, the previous host of the Sevo symbiont, was alive and well, and had been on the Triumphant![11] It took time for Ayiana to process the fact that her former self was still alive and kicking. She spent the next few months getting to know Toran after "the Divergence," the time after which their two realities and memories split.

239305.11 - 239309.07 Still trapped in an alternate universe where the Dominion won the war, the Gorkon is pursued by a relentless and familiar adversary as it tries desperately to find a way home.
The journey Over There toughened Ayiana up.
The months spent in that universe were some of the hardest and most traumatic in Sevo's lives. Constantly on the run and assaulted by Dominion forces, the Gorkon was in increasingly bad shape. During the journey, they lost nearly three-fourths of the crew, many of which Ayiana had served with for years. She suffered trauma as well; at one point Ayiana was trapped in a Jefferies tube junction for twelve hours before she could be rescued. Due to her severe claustrophobia, it was an excruciating experience, one she doesn't fully remember; although repair crews afterward had said there were bloody claw marks on the walls.

At the eleventh hour, assaulted on all sides by Erik Jansen's fleet, a new quantum fissure appeared, opened from the other side by the USS Yarahla which had been pirated by rogue Starfleet officers and acquaintances of the Gorkon crew. During this battle, many Jem'Hadar had managed to board the ship and engage the remaining crew. Ayiana had suffered severe injuries in one such scuffle. If it hadn't been for the timely arrival of the Yarahla, she certainly would have died. Due to a quirk of physics native to quantum fissures, the crew returned after only several months missing in their home universe, despite spending 394 days in the other one.

Upon returning to their universe, along with the survivors of the Triumphant, the Gorkon and her crew spent time on Earth. Ayiana had spent the next few weeks in recovery,[12] both physical and mental. Her long, fire-red hair had been shaved off due to needing brain surgery. It was a blow to Ayiana, as her hair was one of her defining qualities. Along with much of the Gorkon crew, Ayiana spent much time among counselors as well. A monument was built and placed in the Gorkon to remember the 413 lives lost in the alternate dimension, colloquially called "Over There" by the crew.

Their return had not been without controversy, however. A few months after the Gorkon had "disappeared", Starfleet had called off the search for them and declared them officially Missing in Action (MIA). Sympathies and flags were sent to their families, including Ayiana's; delivered by her Academy mentor, Commander Omun Inaki.[13] When they returned back alive and (mostly) unharmed, an outrage among their families and the general population ensued, culminating in protests outside of Starfleet Headquarters; denouncing them for calling off the search; Ayiana's family had traveled from Trill to protest; her sister Aleesia clutching the trifold Federation flag given to them earlier by Inaki.

Despite all the controversy, the Gorkon crew were given a return celebration by Starfleet, attended by Starfleet brass and the crews' families.

239311.1 - 239312.25 Shortly after arriving at their new theater of operations, the Tyrellian government contacts the Gorkon with an urgent request for help with the Orion Syndicate. Increased crime, an infiltrated government, a possible smuggling operation, and an informant on the loose, the Gorkon crew has their work cut out for them.

On Stardate 239311.1, the Gorkon arrived at it's new base of operations in the Tyrellian system, near the borders of Klingon and Romulan space. Their first order of business - to root out corruption throughout the Tyrellian government, suspected to be the Orion Syndicate. Ayiana first led a team to a shipping warehouse to see if they could find clues as to what the Syndicate was doing on Palanon, the Tyrellian's adopted homeworld. Her team managed to capture a low-level thug, and discovered crates of currencies from Klingon, Romulan, and Federation economies; as well as encrypted data chips.

They followed up on a lead by the captured Syndicate goon, as well as partially decrypted information from the recovered chips. Ayiana soon found herself leading a team to the great Perlonian Swamp near the capital city Yarista. There, they found what appeared to be a Syndicate safe house. Attempting to investigate the structure led to a fail-safe being tripped, destroying the house, and most of the content therein, including a few Orions. One survivor was an Orion slavegirl named Leelou, who tried to escape out of fear, but quickly surrendered when she was cornered. It was soon discovered that Leelou had an implanted tracking device and the Syndicate would soon be sending troops to investigate the destroyed safe house. Ayiana and her team took cover in the surrounding swamp while a shuttle containing Syndicate shock troops landed. While her team was distracted, Leelou stole a phaser from Lt. JG Dassa Alexander and shot them from behind. Leelou had actually been the boss for the Tyrellian operation and escaped with the troops.

After recovering in sickbay,[14] Ayiana joined her crewmates on Palanon in the Mindirra mountain range for some shore leave. Calling on her second host, Camen's, skills as a grill chef, Ayiana cooked an elaborate steak dinner for the crew at the culmination of shore leave.

239403.18 - 239404.10 To aide in talks between the races within the Tyrellian Sector and its neighbors, the Gorkon plays host to a diplomatic conference -- but when the Captain is attacked and the conference is rocked by explosions, diplomacy becomes the last thing on anyone's minds.

This mission saw Ayiana serving as acting First Officer to Commander Vess, commanding the Triumphant in a war games scenario against the USS Resolute. Their team concocted a bold plan to incapacitate the Resolute, but they were unknowingly being listened to by the Resolute's captain, T'Vei. She had quickly shut down the Triumphant in one second by firing a perfectly-calibrated polaron burst at them, negating their tractor beam mid-maneuver. T'Vei had been listening in via a bug planted before the exercise, listening to the crew's planning and calibrated the beam appropriately.[15] The precise and effective maneuver irritated Ayiana and Vess to no end.

Fortunately, T'Vei didn't have time to gloat, as a real distress call came from the USS Shavar, one of the support vessels assigned to the Tyrellian Defence and Exploration Taskforce, who had been tasked with gathering sensor information on a potential Syndicate base in the system. They were under attack by an Orion-controlled Breen dreadnought. The Resolute and Triumphant quickly raced to its location to assist. The dreadnought stymied the pair due in no small part to a cloaking device they managed to aquire. After the hostilities, Ayiana realized they had lost contact with the Gorkon. The Triumphant had taken extensive damage during the battle, and was humiliatingly towed back to Palanon by the Resolute over the course of several days. When they finally arrived, they found Commander Walter Brunsig in command and Fleet Captain Reynolds severely injured from an attempted assassination. During the next few weeks she spent in recovery, Vess had taken de facto command of the Gorkon, while Ayiana took over XO duties.

Eventually, the Gorkon found themselves at Risa for some much-needed shore leave. Ayiana was just about to head down to the planet when she got a surprise - in the form of her sister, Aleesia, visiting on vacation from Trill. During shore leave, the pair participated in a volleyball game, swimming, and socializing.

239405.25 - 239407.12 When a scientific curiosity turns deadly and traps the away teams on a virgin planet, Leutra IV, the USS Gorkon's crew are forced to survive without their technology -- and make some startling discoveries along the way.

The Leutra system is something of an enigma. The primary star is a magnetar, a type of neutron star with extremely high levels of electromagnetic radiation. With no indication the system has been visited by any species, all logic says that the fourth planet should not be the source of any power signatures, let alone bear life. Once on the surface, the reason for its safety quickly became apparent. A massive shield encircled the planet, protecting it from the frequent bursts of radiation emitted by the magnetar. It blocked enough of the radiation to save their lives but had caused irreparable damage to the teams' equipment. The only thing they had to go on was a mysterious region of electromagnetic signals they had detected from orbit. Ayiana led the team towards what she remembered to be the direction of the EM signal.

During a night of camping, Ayiana and her team witnessed a ship crash near their location. Once they reconnoitered the site, they realized it was a shuttle of Federation design, yet Ayiana did not know of any other ships in the area. It turned out it was filled with a contingent of Starfleet Rangers from the 451st platoon on a covert mission to destroy an Orion base on the planet; of which no one knew about either. There was only one survivor - Ensign Grace Freeman. They managed to pull her from the wreck and carry her back to their camp where she rested through the rest of the night.

The next morning, Freeman had immediately clashed with Ayiana over concerns of secrecy and confidentiality regarding her mission; going so far as to refuse Ayiana and her team entry to her ship. Considering their survival above all other concerns, Ayiana decided to "pull rank" and overrule Freeman, ordering her team to search the ship for supplies. At one point, Freeman rigged the ship's cockpit to explode, destroying the main computer core, and any information it may have contained. The explosion also knocked everyone off their feet, causing a few scrapes and bruises. Furious, Ayiana ran to Freeman and slammed the armored woman against the shuttle. Things were about to come to blows when the impact crater the ship had created began to crumble and collapse from the explosion. Surprisingly, they fell only a few meters into a clearly artificial cave system just below the surface. Ayiana ordered Freeman held in custody until they could return to the Gorkon. Fortunately, Ayiana soon regrouped with the other away teams and they recounted their story. The other teams discovered that the planet had been filled with AI robots acting as "Keepers" of the planet. They were unable to ascertain the true purpose of the planet before returning to the Gorkon; however, Starfleet planned to send long-term science vessels for further study with the approval of the Keepers.

Unfortunately, the fallout of the mission to Leutra IV followed Ayiana back to the ship. A formal inquiry[16] was held to determine what transpired between Ayiana and Freeman. Captain Reynolds presided, along with Commander Vess, who was First Officer at the time. Ayiana felt ashamed, thinking she may have permanently hurt her relationships with Reynolds and Vess for acting inappropriately. After the hearing, Reynolds rendered her verdict - the 451st Ranger Platoon was to be reformed and put under her command onboard the Gorkon. As for Ayiana, she was stripped of her Second Officer status. Further, Reynolds ordered Ayiana and Freeman to room together for no less than six months.[17] The pair were practically speechless. They came to blows a few hours after meeting each other; how would they be able to live together?!

The Gorkon soon returned to Earth, where a lavish awards ceremony took place at the ancient Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Reynolds had been promoted to Rear Admiral during the festivities.

239409.17 - 239411.01 Upon suffering a dire shutdown of the Quantum Slipstream Drive mid-flight, the Gorkon found itself in the midst of The Roman Expanse, and at the mercy of an energy-hungry creature residing there.
The "Faceless," or Seraphim.
On their return to the Tyrellian system, the Gorkon's slipstream malfunctioned and collapsed, dropping the ship in the dangerous Roman Nebula. Dozens of ships had been lost there over the centuries, and the place remained uncharted; partly due to the constantly-shifting interior. Shortly after being trapped in the nebula, strange faceless, shapeshifting aliens appeared around the ship. They took on the appearance of various crew members for unknown reasons; except they had blank faces. Further, the ship itself became "stuck" in something, unable to move and all power being drained. Eventually it was determined an enormous subspace creature had trapped the Gorkon in it's feeding tendrils, attempting to sap the energy from the ship as food. (The creature is later classified as Romanus Spatium Satanum.)

Ayiana managed to corner one of the Faceless, later classified as Seraphim, and tried to communicate with it. She was unsuccessful, but another team managed some rudimentary telepathic contact with the Faceless. They discovered that the Faceless had been acting as "zookeepers" for the creature for millions of years. Every time a ship became trapped in the nebula, they tried to warn them off, but the communication barrier was too great. Eventually, the Gorkon managed to find a way to free themselves from the creature and escape the nebula.

While the Gorkon underwent repairs, the crew once again received some much-needed shore leave at Iana Station, orbiting Palanon. Ayiana spent much of her time on the station, shopping its promenades. She met up with Lieutenant Cory Stoyer, helping him shop for his wife, Petra Bjarnadottir. It was during this shore leave that an impromptu "reunion" took place between Ayiana, Vess, Eerie, and Nugra; all of whom served together on the USS Victory.

239412.28 - 239502.12 After a starbase goes silent, the USS Gorkon is tasked with discovering what happened to the station and its missing crew.
Leelou, the ruthless Orion crime boss that hounded the Gorkon for years.
The next mission saw the Gorkon investigate Starbase 173, which had gone mysteriously silent. Ayiana found it interesting to learn that it was the station where the famous Sentience Hearing regarding Commander Data took place over thirty years before. Upon transporting aboard, the Gorkon teams quickly found the station in a sort of "hibernation" mode. The life support was at a bare minimum and computers were offline. The entire population of more than 100,000 people were missing.

Ayiana's team was tasked with scouting the science facilities of the station. Once there, they found the body of a Benzite Commander. They also discovered unusual and quasi-illegal science experiments taking place on the station. Their investigation was interrupted by the appearance of powerful but brief subspace rifts throughout the station. Upon communicating with the other teams, along with the Gorkon, it was theorized that some sort of technology was at work. It turned out to be three pieces of an ancient pre-Awakening Vulcan artifact known as the Iapegi Stones. They had the ability to be "programmed" to open rifts to different realms of subspace. Unfortunately, the one it was "tuned" to was inhabited by dangerous aliens. They seemed to defy the laws of physics. They moved in an unnatural way as if looking at stop-motion animation. Their bodies registered intense cold, yet their touch ignited flames as hot as a star.

The aliens were not the only contenders the Gorkon teams had to deal with. Leelou had returned with a contingent of Orion Syndicate troops. They had been hired to find the stones as well. After threatening the lives of one of the Gorkon teams, Admiral Reynolds managed to trap Leelou with one of the aliens. Eventually, the crew managed to shut down the stones, rendering them inert. This also forced the aliens back into their subspace realm and returning the starbase's population. Though mostly unharmed, they were suffering from frostbite, as if they had been in some very cold environment. Leelou was taken into Starfleet custody after she was discovered alive, surrounded by her dead troops. Unfortunately, she escaped custody a few weeks later, killing several Starfleet officers in the process. She currently remains at large.

Returning to Palanon, the Gorkon's crew took some much-needed shore leave. Soon after arriving back at Palanon, Admiral Reynolds extended an offer to make Ayiana First Officer of the Gorkon;[18] which she accepted, but not without some reluctance.[19] She thought her past actions on Leutra IV pretty much sealed any possibility of command for her, but apparently Admiral Reynolds thought otherwise.

Meanwhile, the Captain of the luxury skyliner Cloud Skipper extended an invitation to them, which many of the crew graciously accepted.

239504.15 - 239506.08 When the Gorkon is called to assist in diplomatic negotiations on a Romulan Republic colony world, the crew must survive both the legendary storms and the secrets that are revealed.

The Gorkon is called to assist in diplomatic negotiations on the Romulan Republic colony world of Sikuna. Ayiana led a diplomatic team to the planet capital to meet with Governor Khaveid ir'Dinalla tr'Valai. Their job was to offer mediation and protection from those protesting against the joint scientific alliance between the Romulan Republic scientists and the Federation. Negotiations with the Governor had barely begun when the protestors outside nearly attacked the Civic Center building they were in. To top it off, a massive verteron storm was incoming, which forced everyone to take shelter inside the building. Multiple hostile factions came to blows inside, before being broken up by Ayiana's team. Unfortunately, during the brawl, several people were injured, including some of her team. Ayiana led a small team through the storm to a nearby medical facility to find supplies. While there, they met some more storm victims inside. One was an extremely pregnant Romulan woman who had gone into labor. Ayiana managed to deliver a healthy baby.[20]

After the tumultuous mission, the Gorkon spend shore leave on Trill, allowing Ayiana to visit her family in Najana City.

239508.14 - 239511.15 The Maquis crew of the Skarbek has escaped Outpost Schulman, surviving a Cardassian raid. With a captured Starfleet Intelligence Officer, and a ship full of dreams, the crew hurtle toward the unknown.
"Red", Maquis fighter and big gun aficionado.
The Maquis crew of the Skarbek has escaped Outpost Schulman, surviving a Cardassian raid. With a captured Starfleet Intelligence Officer, the ragtag band of pirates, mercenaries, rebels, and miscreants flee before the Cardassians can track them. During their flight to a nearby system for a rendezvous with a fellow crewmember, strange things begin happening on the ship. The crew sees things that aren't there: strange creatures out of myth walk the halls of the ship and rooms are replaced by alien worlds.[21][5] Medical scans of some crew suggest they are asleep, and that their entire reality is nothing but a shared dream or hallucination. At first, the hypothesis is rebuffed as nonsense, but as reality continues to break down around them, the crew begins to realize perhaps not everything is as it seems. Slowly, they realize they have some measure of control over the place.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Lt. Commander Caedan Nkai manages to wake Rear Admiral Quinn Reynolds, who subsequently is able to awaken the rest of the crew from the dream, with the assistance of Lieutenant Yiggtissi. Suddenly pulled from the dreamscape, Ayiana finds herself entwined in the arms of Lieutenant Cory Stoyer;[6] much to her emotional shock. They have no time to dwell on the thought, however, as the hijackers of the ship, led by the villainous Trill Lladre, leaves behind a bomb on the bridge. Ayiana and those with her manage to beam the bomb into space, then fly the Gorkon away as fast as they can to avoid the blast.

During shore leave, Ayiana and Cory fall in love with each other, despite Cory being married to Petra. Over the course of a few months, the pair dance around each other, trying not to act on their feelings. Petra requests and is granted reassignment to the Triumphant. The "relationship" comes to a climax at a party put together by Engineering, taking place on the hull of the Gorkon. During a dance with her, Cory breaks off the relationship, leaving a distraught Ayiana alone and broken on the dance floor.[22][23][24][25][26]

Rear Admiral Quinn Reynolds is forced to remove Ayiana from the position of First Officer, due to Ayiana's continuing trouble with her anger, which came to the forefront during the Dream of Skarbek. She is reassigned as the Tyrellian Taskforce's Chief Research Coordinator.

239602.05 - 239603.25 While the USS Gorkon is in for routine repairs and maintenance at Starbase 123, Rear Admiral Quinn Reynolds and company have hitched a lift with the USS Njörðr to the annual New Horizons conference; a prestigious conference to showcase new technologies for all branches of Starfleet. During their voyage, the ship encountered a nebula, suffered intense damage, and nebula gases have begun to seep slowly into the ship.

While the USS Gorkon is in for routine repairs and maintenance at Starbase 123, Rear Admiral Quinn Reynolds and company have hitched a lift with the USS Njörðr to the annual New Horizons conference; a prestigious conference to showcase new technologies for all branches of Starfleet. During their voyage, the ship encountered a nebula, suffered intense damage, and nebula gases began to seep slowly into the ship. Gravity generators malfunctioned, causing interior gravity to be flipped, thus the ceiling became the floor. Over the next several hours, Ayiana, along with Admiral Reynolds and Commander Cory Stoyer, carefully made their way through the ship, sometimes crawling through Jefferies tubes, other times through over debris-strewn corridors. They eventually managed to reprogram a cargo transporter in a cargo bay and transport elsewhere on the ship. They, along with the rest of the survivors, were soon rescued by the USS Yarahla.

Afterwards, the crew recovered at their intended destination of Deluvia IV. Ayiana attended several scientific panels at the conference. She, along with several of the crew witnessed Ensign Valesha Sienelis being arrested on charges of treason.

239605.15 - 239608.01 The crew of the USS Gorkon undertake a daring mission to infiltrate Orion space in order to capture a fugitive crime boss, acquire valuable intelligence and extract an undercover operative. At the same time, the Gorkon searches for one of the Syndicate's pirate captains who may be convinced to retire to the safe shores of the Federation... bringing all of his knowledge with him.
Going undercover to the pirate haven Nassau.
The Gorkon undertakes a dangerous mission to a pirate haven to capture the fugitive Leelou. Ayiana joins Commander Trellis Vondaryan and Ensign Tali Namura in an attempt to obtain valuable information stored on Orion Syndicate computers. During the infiltration, Vondaryan is severely injured to the point of catatonia. Ayiana and Tali spend the next several hours evading Syndicate search patrols, crawling through cramped maintenance tunnels while carrying Vondaryan to their shuttle. They find the shuttle destroyed via a bomb, but find surprising refuge and eventual escape with the help of a deep-cover Starfleet Intelligence operative. The group eventually make their way back to the Gorkon, where Vondaryan is shipped off to Starfleet Medical to receive long-term care.

Following the adventure, the crew spent time on Earth. For her part, Ayiana had an awkward dinner with Kyrrha Tereen and Cory Stoyer, the former of which didn't know about Ayiana and Cory's past. Later, Ayiana booked a holoarena excursion in New Zealand; a classic sword-and-spells fantasy adventure. Several crewmembers attended. Capping off shore leave was the wedding of Admiral Quinn Reynolds and Captain Walter Brunsig in Reichsburg Cochem, Germany.

239609.22 - 239611.23 When a recent raid on a Cardassian installation was met with unexpected resistance, the crew of the Skarbek took significant losses. Retreating to Peshkova Colony to lick their wounds and mourn their dead, the crew are swiftly called to the aid of their network communication vessel, the SS Fourcade. On arrival, they found the vessel crash-landed into a nearby moon and an outpost on the surface, believed to be a former Cardassian base.
{{whitelink|Together in Electric Dreams (Gorkon)|Together in Electric Dreams]]

Once again in the fantasy world of the Skarbek, Ayiana "Red" Sevo of the Maquis found herself on the remote world of Peshkova, attending a memorial ceremony for the recently lost fighters. Afterward, her cell aboard the Skarbek was sent to find the lost freighter Fourcade, the Maquis' central communications ship that coordinated cells all across the Maquis, along with its eccentric owner, Caedan Nkai. They eventually found the ship and mounted an excursion inside. Eventually, her team managed to find Nkai and set about attempting to repair the ship. However, they were soon besieged by a small group of Cardassians who had hid in sensor dead spots on the ship, waiting for Maquis to come and save the crew - namely the Skarbek. Eventually, it was revealed that a member of the Q had created the fantasy and dropped members of the Gorkon into it to study how they all acted under different circumstances and pressures to their real life. When she had her answers, the Q disappeared and deposited Ayiana and the rest back on the Gorkon at the moment they left.

Afterwards, the crew unwound at the colony world of Giáng Sinh, where many of them were struggling to come to terms with their actions in the Q-verse. Ayiana was particularly troubled by the fact that she had tortured a Cardassian for information.[27] The partially-terraformed planet had experienced a sudden ice age caused by a solar flare, and the Gorkon was asked to help adapt the colony to the new climate. The wintery conditions also afforded the crew some leisure activities such as ice skating and skiing. Ayiana herself spent time cooking and conversing with crewmembers about their recent experience with the Q, including some counseling sessions with Counselor Corliss Fortune. Ayiana and Cory managed to patch their relationship slightly. At the end of shore leave, the crew celebrated Caedan Nkai's birthday with a large party at the research base.

239702.28 - 239705.18 With tensions reaching a breaking point on the shared Romulan Republic and Federation colony, the crew of the USS Gorkon are asked to investigate missing miners and violent wildlife.
{{whitelink|Serpent Heart, Flowering Face (Gorkon)|Serpent Heart, Flowering Face]]

The Gorkon is sent to the Romulan Republic colony of Væron to assist in the search for missing miners, as well as strange reports of animals run amok. Due to deposits of benamite, a small Federation mining colony is also present, jointly mining for the precious mineral. Ayiana joins the team attempting to find both Romulan and Federation miners who have gone missing. They discover that they are being abducted and genetically transformed into alien fungoid beings. After fighting back an assault by the aliens alongside the remainder of the Romulan miners, Ayiana along with Doctor Loxley, manage to devise a way to "restore" partially-transformed people back to normal via the transporter.

Afterwards, the crew is invited to relax on the colony while they help the planet repair the damage caused by the beings. However, Ayiana did not stay long, as she took vacation time to return to Trill to attend her sister's college graduation.
