Starfleet Career Summary:

prior -- Science officer under Adm. Paris on the U.S.S. Al-Batani, Arias mission
2371 -- Given command of U.S.S. Voyager, new Intrepid-class starship. Ship disappeared in Badlands during mission to pursue Maquis ship.

Bio-Psychological Profile: Report of Starfleet Medical/Counselor's Office

Janeway is a tough captain who is not afraid to take chances, while her intelligence, thoughtfulness, dedication and diplomacy have earned her respect and recognition as one of the best in Starfleet. Her talents in engineering and science allow her hands-on expertise, if necessary; as such she has shown a tendency to defy the Starfleet protocol against beam-down of commanding officers into unsecured away team missions. She prefers to be addressed as "Captain" rather than either the gender-based "sir" or "ma'am." Aside from math and the sciences her studies have included chromo-linguistics, American Sign Language, and the gestural idioms of the Leyron.

This subject's penchant for the scientific method and clear-cut choices has given her a healthy dose of skepticism, which usually provides a command asset in dealing with new situations. Her preference for difficult studies is self-traced back to childhood, when she would prefer that to outdoor play. Since then she has indicated no pleasure in outdoor camping, hiking, or cooking.

For relaxation, Janeway enjoys role-playing and recreation in Holodeck programs, such as Gothic novels, skiing and sailing. In her youth in rural agricultural Indiana she played tennis, and at age 12 walked back from a match she lost for 7 km in a thunderstorm; however, she has not played the game regularly since 2354, when a member of her high school tennis team. As a child she also studied beginning ballet and performed the "Dying Swan" at age 6, but in all her activities - many of them pushed by her parents, such as gardening - she never studied a musical instrument. She has often ascribed this situation to her sister being the artist of the family.

The subject reports one severe depression in life, when her father died under the polar ice cap on Tau Ceti Prime in the mid 2350s. She stayed bedridden with grief until her sister finally coerced her into accepting the fact and moving on, literally dragging Janeway out of bed. The captain has credited her father with forcing her to learn her own lessons and not shielding her from life.

In 2371, Janeway gambled on giving troubled Starfleet renegade Tom Paris a reprieve from his Rehabilitation Settlement in New Zealand by tapping him as a scout for a search-and-rescue mission of her security chief gone undercover aboard a Maquis vessel. However, contact with her new ship, the U.S.S. Voyager, was lost after SD 48307.5 and all hands were presumed lost.

File Update: Delta Quadrant Addendum
Report by Cmdr. Chakotay, First Officer, U.S.S. Voyager

As with all captains through the ages, Janeway looks to her crew like a flock of sheep, but being thrown into the Delta Quadrant and being utterly cut off from home has intensified that burden to levels few commanders may have endured. The loneliness has also led her to relax at times the separation that commanders usually impose upon themselves purely to maintain the "respectful distance" - such as an occasional Sandrine's Bar pool game on the Holodeck.

Her Starfleet training and the graciousness and grit obviously instilled in her upbringing are to blame and to credit for the situation her ship is in: following the Prime Directive to the letter, even if it means stranding oneself 70 years from home, and melding a crew of Maquis and other non-regulation members into an effective force and family that can live as well as merely survive.

Although we have our differences, my respect and admiration for her grow with each day. I appreciate her gamble in my suggestion to select B'Elanna Torres as chief engineer, while we all now know her instincts were correct when she originally opposed my desire to enter alliances with the Kazon or Trabe. We see eye-to-eye on numerous issues, especially a healthy respect for life and other cultures no matter what shape or form, and I cannot fault her on the handling of our encounter with the suicidal Q and his Q pursuer.

She has not only refrained from creating a shipboard fraternization policy but feels eventually the crew will pair off anyway - except for her; I can sense the captain yet fears to "give up" and fully separate emotionally from her fiance Mark. Her trusted Tuvok's disobeyal of direct orders on the grounds of logic when it seemed to help our trek home clearly hit home as well, though overall she takes confidence in the strength of her people.

Amelia Earhart was a personal heroine, so meeting her on the '37s planet was an indescribable event - as was the gratification that not one of the combined Maquis-Starfleet crew would choose to stay behind on the human colony.

Personnel Medical File, EMH Acting CMO:
SD 50500

While amazed at her durability and courage, I must go on record after over two years with my concern at the captain's bent toward constantly putting her personal security at risk. I trust it will not be her undoing, and this ship's.

While my confidence in her mental state has not wavered, I am pleased she has taken my shipwide advice to pursue arts and recreation forms as a diversion to our long journey. The captain has returned to tennis after 19 years, taken up watercolors, and even shared a childhood ballet with the ship on talent night.

DQ Addendum, Cmdr. Chakotay
SD 50525

The captain would never admit it, but for the record I would note her action beyond the call of duty in almost single-handedly saving this ship from the strain of macrovirus that nearly killed its crew. The captain also amazed me by offering to sacrifice her life to save Kes on Nichristi, even though its spiritualism was a puzzle to her, and her strength of will was never stronger than when defeating what I would call a life entity succubus.

As our journey grows I cannot help but grow in respect and affection for our captain, stirred on by our short-lived planetary abandonment before our viral infection could be cured. Thanks to that incident I have every confidence that Kathryn Janeway will see us through our predicament with high spirits in, dare I say it, the best Starfleet tradition.

Starfleet Career Summary (partial)

2293 -- Graduated Starfleet Academy

2293 -- VOYAGER ANNOTATION: Served on U.S.S. Excelsior, junior science officer

2298 -- VOYAGER ANNOTATION: Resigned Starfleet, from Excelsior

2343 -- Returned to Starfleet, assigned to U.S.S. Wyoming

2371 -- Security chief and second officer, U.S.S. Voyager under Capt. Kathryn Janeway (MIA)

2372 -- Assumes command for six weeks during quarantine of Voyager CO and XO


Profile: Report of Starfleet Security

Security chief and tactical officer under Captain Kathryn Janeway who had gone undercover to infiltrate the Maqui as part of Chakotay's crew when both ships disappeared in the Badlands of the Demilitarized Zone, presumably destroyed by plasma storms; the smaller craft disappeared a week before the Voyager was last heard from on SD 48307.5.

Earlier in his career Tuvok served on the U.S.S. Wyoming and was a teacher and cadet trainer at Starfleet Academy for 16 years before joining Janeway's crew on her ship prior to the U.S.S. Voyager; for a brief time he was on leave with a temporary assignment at Jupiter Station. In his youth he was an opponent of the Federation-Klingon treaties but later came to see the wisdom of fellow Vulcan Spock's drive for alliance.

In his personal life, Tuvok is a devoted parent and husband - his wife was in labor for 96 hours with their third child - and engages his interest in the traditional Vulcan lute, playing it for his children when they could not fall asleep at bedtime. His youngest son was especially fond of "Falor's Journey," a 347-verse epic ode. Tuvok also is an expert botanist with growing orchids a specialty he continues in his own quarters, practices the Keethara meditation routine, and began his interest in the Vulcan game kal-toh with master studies at age 5. Prior to his stint on the Wyoming he taught archery science at the Vulcan Institute for Defensive Arts, and has maintained a scholarly interest in the study of violence for over a century.

****CLASSIFIED to Level 1 security at Subject request, AD 2349 With the best of Vulcan rationality, Tuvok was pressured by his parents into following them into Starfleet and graduated the Academy at the age of 29 in 2293, originally posted to Capt. Hikaru Sulu on the U.S.S. Excelsior. He resigned in 2398 to pursue his people's kohlinar regimen of true non-emotion after becoming disillusioned with non-Vulcans in the service, but went into pon farr six years later and began a family. His return to Starfleet was marked by a maturity and a reconsideration of the benefits service provided.
****


File Update: Delta Quadrant Addendum
Report by Capt. Kathryn Janeway, U.S.S. Voyager

Tuvok's physical, investigative and tactical skills are an inspiration to this crew, while his Vulcan equanimity and calm demeanor make him a valued peacekeeper aboard the ship. With his combination of wisdom, experience and vitality Tuvok is one of the most respected members of the crew, even grudgingly among the former Maquis. And he is certainly my most trusted confidant aboard this far-flung vessel, although I regret to put him on report for his formal insubordination regarding my orders banning black-market bartering for a possible shortcut home with the Sikarians.

Tuvok has recently demonstrated to me the good and bad of the mystique of the unique Vulcan mental abilities. While he has helped Kes develop her latent Ocampan abilities, he nearly made himself criminally insane despite his Vulcan self-disciplines after a mind-meld while attempting to aid psychopathic murderer and former Maquis Lon Suder, a Betazoid, after the murder of a fellow crewman.

UPDATE SD 50530: K. Janeway, addendum

Re: Crewman Suder: I underestimated Tuvok's patience and Suder's heart. The crewman had made substantial progress toward a healthy outlook before giving his life to retake this ship from Kazon-Nistrim raiders, ca. SD 49000.

Despite our earlier problems on this mission I have come to cherish my decision to retain Tuvok as second officer, and feel such experiences as his captaincy during Chakotay and my's medical quarantine will benefit him in the long run. I know it weighed heavily on him to recant my orders against Vidiian involvement, but I cannot fault the growth he showed in considering the pleas of the entire ship. Reversing his accidental and unprecedented transporter merging with Neelix into an all-new third being was in turn a tough choice for this commander, but one in which - as the Vulcans say - I had to place the needs of the many above the needs of the one.

As for the incredible incident prompted by his viral parasite disguised as a submerged memory from his Excelsior days, I thank my friend for a look at living history - Starfleet's and his own.

FEDERATION DATABASE FILE: Paris, Tom (Missing)
**Includes updates, addenda through SD 50500 (2373)
Played By: Robert Duncan McNeill
Status: Trusty, UFP Rehabilitation Commission
Current assignment: Observer/scout, U.S.S. Voyager (presumed lost with ship)
Full Name: Thomas Eugene Paris
Parents: Admiral and Mrs. Paris
Education: Starfleet Academy graduate
Marital status: Single


Biographical Sketch:

Paris, born into a long line of distinguished Starfleet officers, had a troubled relationship with the high expectations of his father, an admiral, who joined his friends and teachers to praise him as a child but remained tough and remote, telling him for instance that crying was a sign of weakness. He managed to graduate from Starfleet Academy after a stormy four years, almost failing stellar cartography as a freshman; he chose Marseilles, France as the site of his physical training second semester. He did hone his natural aptitude for piloting skills on craft large and small and proved adept at holo-engineering.

Despite his family legacy, Paris buckled under to the self-imposed pressure and tried to cover-up an error that caused the deaths of three officers at Caldrik Prime; it was only his self-confession at the point he would have been exonerated that netted him a discharge rather than harsher punishment. After leaving Starfleet he turned to the Maquis for fulfillment as a fighter pilot, but was captured by Starfleet on his first mission and this time was sentenced to the Federation Penal Settlement near Auckland, New Zealand, wearing an alarm anklet.

Paris was given a reprieve of sorts in early 2371 when he was temporarily released from the rehab colony and given a second chance by Captain Janeway, who needed him to scout her new starship through the Badlands in search of her lost security chief who had been undercover among a Maquis crew Paris had served with, led by former Lt. Cmdr. Chakotay. Had he successfully completed the mission Paris could have applied for permanent parole, but ironically he and the rest of the Voyager crew are missing and presumed lost in the Badlands plasma storms, last contact SD.

In later counseling, Paris revealed an unsatisfying relationship with women that has fostered no long-term associations, including a relationship with Susie Crabtree as an Academy freshman and a French woman, "Ricky," met during his Marseilles semester. He also has an affinity for antique Earth ground vehicles and Terran American history and culture, especially of the 20th century, and has enjoyed sailing in true life and in holo-programs.

File Update: Delta Quadrant Addendum
Report by Capt. Kathryn Janeway, U.S.S. Voyager

After his actions during the ship's odyssey into the Delta Quadrant and the "Caretaker" encounter, I have granted Paris a field promotion to lieutenant. Given a second chance, he has stood tall, not only keeping the ship safe through his piloting skills but counseling Torres through the wrenching division of her soul and saving his onetime Maquis enemy Chakotay, though his stint as an aide to the EMH Doctor was short.

Before our encounter with the '37s he had never landed a starship of this variety before - I am unclear whether he literally included smaller craft as Runabouts - but he landed within the 2 km range I specified.

Special Addendum: Stardate 49372

I am pleased to record for posterity that Lieutenant Tom Paris has to our knowledge become the first person to break Warp 10 barrier. We hope some one, someday, will learn of his achievement back home before it is duplicated.

File Update: Janeway Report

I must again commend Lt. Paris for his actions in carrying out our operation to flush out Seska's informant among our crew, Michael Jonas. I regret not having filled in Chakotay of the plan, but the resulting "drama" played directly into our hands; at least the commander and Lt. Rollins found themselves in a fight with Paris for all the crew to see, although Neelix and his new "broadcast" nearly ruined our secret.

Psych profile: Report of Ship's Doctor, EMH-1

Paris fancies himself a lady's man in the 24th century sense of the word, and though he was framed for murder it almost cost him his and sanity when punished by a Badean court . He may yet lead up-tight Harry into trouble with the Delaney sisters or elsewhere onboard ship, but while the mystery of the "Ricky" of his Holodeck programs remains he's introduced everyone aboard to the relaxation of pool and his Marseilles hangout, Sandrine's Bar; I personally have enjoyed his "'57 Chevy parked on Mars" holo-program, which includes the period tune "I Only Have Eyes For You." Paris was surprised to discover he did have a slight attraction to Kes and fought to suppress it, confirming Neelix's long-running jealousy of he and Kes. Their raucousness was finally settled when the two men were forced to save themselves and nurture an infant alien on its native world.

Paris Medical Update: Supplemental

Collective medical science has triumphed again. I have restored the original DNA genome for the Captain and Lt. Paris after their Warp 10 experience in "Infinite Velocity" and momentary multi-dimensional existence speeded up their human evolution into an retro-amphibian lifeform which we retrieved after they gave birth. The condition with both subjects, I feel, clears it of any link to from the slight enzymatic imbalance in Paris' cerebellum I detected pre-flight, which I predicted could lead to a 2% chance of brain hemorrhage amid subspace stress. In the euphoria of the moment before his first test flight Paris remarked that it was the first time in 10 years (or since 2362) that he felt his self-esteem was capable of taking risks; I am unsure to what life event he is referring.

A personal note: a thanks to the lieutenant for his advice on dating and his '57 Chevy holo-program.

Special Addendum: Stardate 50025

I find myself making more and more of these commendations to take great pride in my gamble/ Thi is to note that Lt. Paris played a major role in recovering our vessel against incredible odds from its Kazon-Nistrim marauders, along with the EMH Doctor and Crewman Suder, who gave his life.


Special Addendum: Stardate 50315:

Had I known that 20th century American pop culture would be such an asset to a Starfleet officer's diplomatic bag of tricks I would have taken and lobbied for the class as curriculum years ago. But once again Lt. Paris has aided this crew immeasurably with his knowledge during our recent incident in AD 1996 Los Angeles.

Notation: Security chief Tuvok, SD 50316.2:

My praise is added to that of Mr. Paris's file. However I must point out that while he is an excellent starship helmsman, as a taxi driver he leaves much to be desired.

Paris Medical Update: Supplemental

Because our special circumstance of isolation requires ongoing monitoring of fraternization, I have observed a shifting of attention in Lt. Paris' affectations, from playing to field -- especially Megan Delaney -- to a flirtatious sparring with none other that Lt. Torres. As I am a doctor and not a voyeur, I maintain this observation simply for historical record on our unique scenario.

voy_chakotay5.jpg

FEDERATION BIOGRAPHICAL DATABASE FILE: Chakotay (Wanted; Reported Missing)
**Includes updates, addenda through SD 50500 (2373)
Played By: Robert Beltran
Status: Maquis commando and felon
Full Name: Chakotay
Species: Human
Year of birth: 2335
Parents: Son of Kolopak
Education: Starfleet Academy, 2350-54
Marital status: Single


A Native American descendant, this onetime Starfleet lieutenant commander resigned from his position as an instructor in Starfleet's Advanced Tactical Training in 2370 to join the Maquis, sparked by his father's death fighting Cardassians on the tribe's homeworld along the Demilitarized Zone. Chakotay is a gentle man but resolute, and is one of the Maquis who are truly in the fight for principle, not mercenary gain or violent outlet - as was one of his students, Lt. Ro Laren.

Today Chakotay looks to his spiritual Mayan background for inner comfort - and doesn't mind sharing that belief with others, when asked, or even enduring some good-natured ribbing about it from Torres and Paris, among others. He uses a spririt guide summoned by his medicine bundle, prays to speak with his father for guidance, and uses a Mayan-descended medicine wheel for self-healing. With amother suffering from ongoing neck muscle spasms, he is also reportedly an excellent masseuse.

However, he didn't always have such reverence for his ancestors' ways. His father Kolopak was insistent upon finding their peoples' ancestral home and did so in the Central American jungle in 2350, when Chakotay was 15. But the young man had already been casting his lot with Starfleet crews patrolling the border, and stunned his father on that trip with the news he'd be leaving the tribe to attend Starfleet Academy after his newfound aquaintance Captain Sulu agreed to sponsor him at Starfleet Academy, even at his young age. Despite that resistance, Chakotay dis learn many survival skills from his father, such as building log cabins and fire-starting.

Chakotay's piloting skills trace back to extensive and early Starfleet Academy training. From a freshman course over adjacent North America, he went to Venus to master atmospheric storms and had yet another semester dealing with asteroids in the Sol asteroid belt.

The virtual estrangement between father and son lasted until 2371 when Kolopak died defending his home in the early days of Cardassian harassment, even as the final border treaty was being signed. Chakotay took to wearing his tattoo, a symbol of those jungle descendants, to honor his father, who wore it also; even his own name is a cherished gift from his tribe. Later Chakotay reported considering archeology as a second occupation, either in the field or in academics.

Chakotay's people, tracing their lineage back past Mayans to the Rubber Tree People of Central America, resisted the intrusion of more technological societies until the devleopment of warp drive in the 21st century allowed them to leave Earth and find their own home for good. One 20th century forebear he knows of was a schoolteacher in Arizona.

Even today its members avoid modern devices such as transporters wherever they can, and he was taught that nothing is personally owned save the courage and loyalty in one's own heart. Despite his tribe's move, the adult Chakotay means Earth when he thinks of "home" - from the Arizona desert and the Baja California peninsula over to the Gulf of Mexico.

Known members of Chakotay's Maquis crew include B'Elanna Torres, Lon Suder, Kurt Bendera, Kenneth Dalby, Mariah Henley, (First Name Unknown) Ayala, (FNU) Hogan, (FNU) Jackson; Bajoran nationals Seska, Gerron and Jarvin; and a Bolian, Chell.

With an undercover agent from the crew of Captain Kathryn Janeway aboard, Chakotay's craft disappeared in the Badlands a week before Janeway's new U.S.S. Voyager itself was lost on SD 48307.5 and presumed destroyed.

File Update: Delta Quadrant Addendum
Appended by Capt. Kathryn Janeway, U.S.S. Voyager

The former Maquis leader has had his share of pains before: the revelation that Tuvok was Janeway's spy; the death of Kurt Bendera in a Kazon battle, after he'd helped in out in a brawl on Telfas Prime; and the defection of his former lover Seska - whom he's further shocked to realize was a Cardassian spy all along in his Maquis crew, and who continues to manipulate that guilt.

Despite such trials, and his Maquis sympathies, Chakotay's own moral courage rings out as strongly as mine when the chips are down - and it is to his credit that he has accepted my command and enforced the embracing of Starfleet ways among his old crew fully and with vigor, including assuming equal discipline - and, I've heard, a right cross if necessary. And I am especially indebted that he convinced me to gamble on his nominee for chief engineer - although I must take the blame in overriding my convictions in seeking an alliance with the Trabe or Kazon as he'd suggested.

The convictions of both his people and Starfleet served him well when keeping his life and dealing with the Kazon boy Kar and his elders - and putting his own safety on the line to fake his death, saving Kar's naming honor. He apparently has more than one medicine bundle made up, or else he thought to take it with him in the rush to beam out with Kar.

Chakotay had seemed to be on the way to mending fences with Tom Paris when our ruse that couldn't include the commander had to be hatched to trap our Maquis informant to Seska; I know he was not only annoyed at the act but miffed that he was left out of the loop, but it did further the performance beautifully.

Checkout review update, Kathryn Janeway, SD 50100:

Seska is dead. Having secured our vessel once and for all from the recent short-lived Kazon take-over, I note not only Chakotay's heroics in securing our planetside position with the suspicious but sentient natives, but also his mixed mood in learning that Seska's child, presumed to be his, proved not to be. I only trust that Seska's demise will allow the commander to leave this phase of his life behind without guilt and manipulation.

Personal addenda, Level 1 classification, for SFC eyes only:

I write this after having spent six weeks quaratined alone with the commander on an immunizing Class M planet under threat of carrying a viral epidemic to the crew. While personal log are not the purview of this file entry, I feel compelled to comment on Chakotay's survival skills and his commitment to easing our personal burdens alone, before we had any hope of seeing our ship again. We likely have a long journey ahead of us, and I feel somehow invigorated that he and I have fostered such a smooth relationship. Where our personal feelings lie beyond that is an issue that must not interfere with crew safety and security, but there are times when I believe the commander, depite his best effort, gets downright jealous or giddy.

B`Elanna Torres
Chief Engineer

FEDERATION BIOGRAPHICAL DATABASE FILE: Torres, B'Elanna (Wanted; Missing)
**Includes updates, addenda through SD 50500 (2373)
Played By: Roxann Dawson
Full Name: Torres, B'Elanna
Species: Half-Klingon, Half-Human
Education: Starfleet Academy, incomplete second year
Marital status: Single


Biography Sketch: Report of Starfleet Security

After a brilliant but troubled two years heading toward an engineering specialty at Starfleet Academy, subject Torres seemed to be constantly at odds with the Klingon heritage of her maternal side and after several disruptive episodes agreed to leave school. She and her Klingon mother had lived on Kessick IV along among humans after her father, a human Starfleet officer, left them when she was 5.

She later joined the Maquis rebellion in its early stages and by mid-2370 was acting as engineer for former Starfleet officer Chakotay's crew, her position at last report and the crew to which Lt. Tuvok of the U.S.S. Voyager under Captain Kathryn Janeway had infiltrated undercover. Her ship was last heard from a week before the Voyager went looking for it in the DMZ Badlands; both vessels are missing and presumed lost, last detected SD 48307.5.

When she turns to recreation as an outlet, she has been known to play both hoverball and Parrises Squares.

File Update: Delta Quadrant Addendum
Report by Capt. Kathryn Janeway, U.S.S. Voyager

I have never regretted my decision to assign Torres the brevet rank of lieutenant or make her my chief engineer. She is tough, knowledgeable and independent, and sometimes seems an echo of myself at her age in her department, but her mixed heritage has manifested itself in a state of confusion and denial that I hope is not personally insurmountable. Now that B'Elanna is unable to release her frustrations through fighting the Cardassians, she must learn to accept herself and her conflicting heritage.

I recall how far she has come since her diatribe against my order to destroy the Caretaker's Array when we first arrived, and her reaction to Tuvok's grumbling "boot camp" Maquis bears out my faith in her.

Episodes such as the Vidiians' kidnapping of her to test Klingon tissue for its Phage-resistance does not hurt, although I was gratified to see she allowed such a sample taken a year later to aid Dr. Danara Pel, who later in turn helped our crew when Chakotay and I were fatally infected and left behind. It hurt me to put her on report following the Sikaris insubordination.

Torres was also driven by guilt to stop "Dreadnought", the code name of a Cardassian doomsday missile she reprogrammed as a Maquis in mid-2370 to hit its makers' fuel depot at Aschelon V and swept up by the Array to into the Delta Quadrant. She launched it as a super-killer without Chakotay's permission - even though she programmed it to warn Federation ships. B'Elanna was also away from us when a Cravic fighter robot she reactivated here kidnapped her to its vessel to give its kind the secret of replication that had all but halted their undying war with Praylor robots, since neither could reproduce after both sides eliminated their makers and kept fighting.

CROSS-EXCERPT, related file, Chakotay personal log, SD 50246:

Sometimes I wonder about my B'Elanna. I know she's honest, but the erotic Enaran dreams she experienced are I trust not a product of her own psyche. It' s none of my business of course, but even though she dates I do worry about her keeping to herself too much. I just hope the flirtatious sparring she gets from Tom Paris these days doesn't lead to more hurt for her.

Personnel file addendum, report of CO Janeway, SD 50450:

I have nothing but praise for my chief engineer as we near our third year in returning home, despite her unusual behavior with the Enarans, whom I had hoped to make as a new ally. But B'Elanna is nothing if not brutally honest, and though my own inquiry failed to turn up concrete proof of her story I cannot help but feel we are better off without allies whom she claim engaged in a Holocaust-like purge and then ignored the horror.
