|Crew of the USS Chin'toka|
|Lieutenant Commander Chythar Skyfire, MD|
When they served together on board Starbase 118 Ops,and Chythar received his baptism by fire during the Odyssey mission. He feared he'd started out wrong with her, because of his emotional turmoil. He did, early on, attempt to relieve her of duty due to her injuries and he feared she would make them worse if she accompanied them on the mission. This was quickly forgotten in the aftermath of the Odyssey Project and the two became fast friends. In fact, she was like a mentor to him.
Catalyst to basic telepathic/empathic abilities Dr. Azin is a very interesting character. It is to this individual that CD owes his 'gift' of telepathy and empathy with other humans due to a mind meld that went wrong. Chythar volunteered to help Azin overcome some sensory difficulties using his mental fortitude. The two times these men have spoken since the incident were to determine his success at learning to cope with the telepathic and empathic gifts he was left with. And both conversations were rather short, very abridged.
Comms friend / Cultural Exchange Program Pen Pal
Chythar met her through the Starfleet Academy Cadet Cultural Exchange Program, which has allowed many cadets to hook up with officers across the fleet. The initial subspace conversation took place during Chythar's most recent layover at Starbase 118 as he waited for a transport heading back to Earth. The two officers conversed briefly about hobbies and exchanged a few tips regarding shore leave before the call ended.
They met on DSX shortly after Chythar's transfer. Due to his somewhat antisocial behavior, he hasn't spoken to her very much. She deliberately sought him out after the quarantine crisis; the first time to accompany Mr. Fergus in delivering a cute little puppy, and saw him again later when he came by to pick up some plants. It is possible she may be hosting a game night on the Garuda at some point, and may drag the doc out of his quarters to make sure he gets social interaction.
When the two men first met aboard the Gorkon, neither of them guessed that they would one day become close friends. They've both exchanged their sets of rules, and learning the rule sets of the other. Whenever Cory breaks one of CD's rules, there's a smack to the back of the head that accompanies the rule number. During one of the crazier missions where the ship was falling to pieces, Cory had to be restrained and CD quoted rule 7 at him. He was also at Cory's wedding, and does the occasional intervention where he makes a phone call and puts certain people in touch. Namely, Cory & Petra's conversations with counselor Tobian Dalton were totally Chythar's fault because Cory hates counselors.
Former CO of the Astraeus / Present CO / Friend
Several months after the destruction of the Montreal, the Caitian contacted Chythar at home on Earth and asked for him to come back, but not in a medical capacity -- as a civilian. It was the opportunity of a lifetime, in which the Eagle Nebula would be explored and new flavors of coffee would be found.
Carter and Chythar served together aboard the USS Excalibur-A. They have gone through several rough patches together, ranging from Chythar saving Carter's life aboard the USS Garuda to the occasional disagreements with other officers. Now, the pair of them occasionally joke that Chythar's time on engineering projects will land him in a gold collar, even if the only purpose that serves would be to put another color in his wardrobe.
One Night Stand
Former Significant Other
Skyfire: Just hold that thought for a moment, mate.
Best Friend & Current Signifigant Other
During their tour of the alternate universe, the ship was faling to pieces around them and Lael noticed Chythar seemed to be more distant than normal. He looked like he needed a friend, so they began talking and their friendship was born. He takes jujitsu lessons from her once in a while and has become one of her closest friends since. Every now and again, he comes face to face with the mat in practice because he drops his guard. Sometimes, he is asked to just listen, which puts him in the unlikely role of a counselor. It helps once in a while. He's also teaching her what he knows about shielding her mind.

During the rescuing of Captain Reynolds, Skyfire's assistance proved useful for a few reasons: one, he was somewhat telepathic. Two, he was a doctor. It wasn't until during shore leave, however, that he discovered the real reason for a trip to the captain's office -- to find out whether he accepted the position of assistant chief from Del Vedova. After explaining a bit about his ambitions, it was decided that he was the new assistant since Kotir had gone on leave.
During his second shore leave following the capture of the rogue ship, USS Mercury, he had to deal with a medical crisis involving their chief of navigation. Once more, he was called into the captain's office -- this time to receive a promotion to lieutenant and a promotion to acting chief of medical. It seems every time he goes into her office there is a degree of 'what did I do this time' affiliated with it. In order to make his position permanent, he was challenged to make some personal improvements before he was going to be made CMO on a permanent level.
The relationship between Skyfire and Saveron started as a professional one between colleagues. As medical professionals, they do spend some of their time discussing work or meditation techniques. As a Vulcan, it was presumed that Saveron would be able to lend a hand with meditation techniques, and Chythar was more than willing to accept any help that was offered. It took a little while for CD to accept the fact that Saveron did genuinely wish to help him get a handle on his telepathy, as he hadn't had much experience with Vulcans before. In the end, it turned into a crazy trust exercise as he offered a mind meld to allow Saveron insight into how he became gifted.
Former Admin Nurse
Recently after his appointment to assistant chief of medicine aboard the USS Garuda, he met Ensign Gabrielle Porchevska for the first time. During a conversation in 10-Forward, he made it clear to Gabi that he wasn’t looking for a relationship. She helped by compiling the list of teams before he left on the away mission. Shortly after their return from the USS Mercury, he was told he sucked at conversation and she needed to help alleviate that.
Former Counselor & Brother of Choice
Met in the aftermath of Pythia's Tale on board the USS Excalibur-A, Chythar had a few sessions with Sal Taybrim and managed to get to know him a bit. Then, unexpectedly, Sal was transferred to the Darwin. Sal promised CD an open line if he ever needs it, and resulting in the young doctor building a gradual hatred of counselors; he sees Sal as the third one he's lost. It was during that time that he realized he loved Sal as a brother rather than as a romantic interest.
Former counselor & sister of choice
Just when he was certain they'd probably never be family again, as of 239705.03 becomes an uncle to Raissa's little girl, Natalia.
