Commander Evan Delano
Born to a single mother on Earth, Evan had a troubled childhood made worse by unpredictable and sometimes violent mood swings. Under the guidance of a Vulcan mentor, Evan eventually found a functional, but imperfect balance between his aversion to Vulcan ideology, and the necessity of controlling his emotions. That, and a desire to prove himself, was enough to get Evan through the Academy. His first two years in Starfleet earned him a sterling record, and Evan quickly advanced to the rank of Lieutenant Commander, and was well respected among his peers until Evan attacked an unarmed prisoner. After pleading guilty at his court martial, Evan eventually requested and was granted an indefinite leave of absence from Starfleet before heading off to the Shoals in pursuit of the Reya-Laialara. In 2394, he returned to Starfleet to join the USS Veritas' mission in the Shoals.
Lieutenant Commander Charmaine Ning
With expertise in meteorology, chemistry, and particle physics, Charmaine Ning is an accomplished scientist who suffered a terrible loss when the first and only ship she ever served on was destroyed in an accident that was never fully explained. One of her three children was killed by injuries sustained in the accident, and Charmaine swore she would never again to expose her family to the terrible danger life on a starship represents. Eight years later, Charmaine reluctantly accepted a position aboard the newly relaunched USS Astraeus. As a compromise, she had planned to leave her family behind on Starbase 94, where her husband was working, however, her oldest son requested to join her on the assignment as he begins to pursue his own future in Starfleet.
