Captain Hikaru Sulu Commanding Officer
Overconfident, almost to a flaw; doesnt usually confide in his command staff; doesnt inspire loyalty; lover of Ariel Cord, but shes not part of the command loop/inner circle, because he doesnt have one; doesnt like Tuvok; does not regard his crew as "friends."
portrayed by George Takei
Commander Janice Rand Executive & Chief Communications Officer
To her, Starfleet is a job; doesnt feel a part of the hierarchy; Sulu dresses her down for crew problems, especially Tuvok; often offers advice which is completely ignored; doesnt like Ariel Cord; regards her as a porn bimbo turned doctor.
portrayed by Grace Lee Whitney
Captain Deneice "Mallie" Maliszewski Captain of Engineering
A complete and total genius, she doesnt relate to the captain; not a part of the command loop, she refuses to sit in the center seat; "I did that once, but I wont do it again...ever." Maliszewski developed the transwarp engines that Starfleet developed for the Excelsior. The transwarp project was a failure, but did achieve a faster warp drive.
portrayed by Sharon Mitchell
Commander Ariel Cord Chief Medical Officer
Shes a very good doctor, but not the galaxys greatest; former porn star; made a fortune in her fathers adult film industry; she doesnt care for Janice Rand or her judgmental attitude; doesnt offer advice to Sulu on any command matter; shes already learned better; he doesnt want her advice. She's remarkably young looking for her age (54).
portrayed by Jenna Jameson
Lieutenant Commander Boris Lojur Chief Helm Officer
A serious, nervous, earnest middle-aged man; an Armenian; a seasoned space veteran; recently promoted, he serves as third in command. Lojur had a homosexual relationship with Dmitri Valtane who perished during a battle with the Klingons near their border.
portrayed by Boris Krutonog
Lieutenant Linda Parker Chief Navigation Officer
A relatively inexperienced navigator. Originally in Communications, she was more interested in interstellar navigation. As a result, she had been granted a post on the bridge by Sulu because he recognized a seed of brilliance in her work. A fresh young woman in awe of the universe and its mysteries is a welcome addition to the bridge crew. She is interested in Lieutenant Peterson, but he's not interested in her in the slightest.
portrayed by Jodie Foster
Lieutenant Ryan Peterson Chief Tactical Officer
The newest guy on the block; a gay male, but not even slightly feminine. The lieutenant is a tad insecure: "Im not sure if Im out of line here, being new and all, so if I am, just tell me, and Ill shut up, but, well, the Klingons are charging their disruptors, and it looks like, maybe, just maybe, they intend to fire on us in, well, I wouldnt be presumptuous, but five seconds or so?"
portrayed by Paul Reiser
Lieutenant, j.g. Brai Chief Security Officer
A Rigelian Kaylar, the dominant humanoid species of Rigel VIIl; a big, brutish looking with purple eyes, but actually quite affable; quiet, unassuming, an excellent strategist. He has openly defied Sulu when the captain has chosen to put himself in danger, and yet has never been called on the carpet for it. At 2.1 meters in height, perhaps Sulu doesnt dare.
portrayed by Richard Kiel
Ensign Tuvok Science Officer
The young man is a Vulcan. All Vulcan. More Vulcan than Spock had ever hoped to be. But whereas Spock always had struggled to be Vulcan, it comes naturally to Tuvok. And with that comes an almost annoying set of habits that irritates Sulu to no end. The ensign has served nearly three years aboard the Excelsior.
portrayed by Tim Russ
Doctor Dars Altos Viger Assistant Chief Medical Officer
Typically Bolian, his ingratiating nature always annoys Captain Sulu; the captain has no doubt that Viger would suggestion enough revisions to Sickbay procedures and policies to such an extent that Chief Medical Officer Ariel Cord would become apoplectic.
portrayed by James Sloyan
Doctor Helen Noel Ships Psychologist
Despite an early setback to her career, this Human female has advanced interstellar psychology to a new height with her assignment as one of the first starship psychologists in Starfleet.
portrayed by Geena Davis
Lieutenant Ted "Kras" Krasnyk First Assistant Chief Engineer
Throughout his career, Krasnyk, a Human male, has served as the assistant to Deneice Maliszewski. He helped her develop the failed transwarp drive engine, and has been at her side forever. Hes regarded as a competent if unimaginative engineer with an outlandish sense of humor and timing.
portrayed by Bob Denver
Ensign Jared Behn Communications Officer
A Human male with a gravelly voice. Serves as Communications Officer whenever Janice Rand is busy performing her duties as Executive Officer.
portrayed by Christian Slater
Ensign Roger Dashner Science Officer
A Human male with a good sense of humor. He does not want the Chief Science Officer posting, preferring instead to conduct research in a variety of fields of study. Unfortunately, he is often pressed into duty at Science One by Captain Sulu, usually because the captain has grown weary of Ensign Tuvok. It's often hard to find Ensign Dashner; he devotes himself to his research, and finds interruptions annoying.
portrayed by Will Smith
Chief Keyoto Hamilton Transporter Chief
This Human male was only recently assigned to serve as transporter chief following the death of the extremely popular Transporter Chief Glarr, a Tellarite who was gruff but lovable. Chief Hamilton is a consummate professional, operating the transporter with as much art as skill.

My apologies to any of the fine actors who might object to being depicted here in the Star Trek universe, but these folks are who I'd pick for these roles--of course, the budget for such a star-heavy project would require more money than the wealthiest Ferengi could afford, but we can dream, and their inclusion here is a tribute to them as far as I'm concerned. Lastly, yes, I'm aware that two of the folks here are erotic film stars, but I like I said, we can all dream, can't we?
