Cast & Crew


Mark Stone  

A twenty-year veteran of deep space service, Mark Stone doesn’t think of himself as anything special. He never thought he would be a captain. The Deimos is, in fact, his first command. Stone is a complicated man, one of deep feelings. He cherishes his crew as he realized long ago that his shipmates help keep him sane in space. Because of this, Stone does not tolerate conflict between his crew.

A master of his emotions, yet he is looking for love in space and regards himself as an interstellar lover. He feels that love cannot be limited to a specific type or race.

But if you threaten the Federation or his crew, he will open fire photon torpedoes up your backside.

Wolfgang "The Grey Wolf" Klawitter  
Commander Wolfgang "The Wolf" Klawitter is an extremely seasoned space veteran, a survivor of the Battle of the Three Suns. During the battle, Tactical Officer Klawitter was unable to turn the Klingon ambush into a Federation victory. But he was able to provide evidence of the Klingon sneak attack on the Romulan colony. For this, he has earned the respect of the Romulans, and the hatred of the Klingons.
Klawitter has had command before. As Captain of the Chickamauga, he led his task force into holding the line against an incursion from the forces of the Orion-led Barrier Alliance. Unfortunately, Starfleet felt that his response to the incursion was excessive. He was relieved of command, and assigned a desk at Starbase 211. When Captain Harlan of the Deimos perished on Nekkar Three, consideration was given to Klawitter for its captaincy. Instead, Commodore Sedeni give the captaincy to Jeremy Quinn and put Klawitter in place as his executive officer in the hope that the senior officer could impart his tactical genius to the younger man.
Whether or not he's successful remains to be seen....

Erik Drogo  
Eric Drogo grew up on Centaurus VII, which is a remote frontier colony supported mostly by deep core mining.   It was a rough environment with problems ranging from street gangs to the crime families that controlled everything from pick pockets to the thriving black market.  To survive in this environment, Eric had to be tough and resourceful.  Even as a young child, Erik’s nature was to be a protector and to defend his friends by standing up to the bullies and predators.  This would mean that he would frequently get into fights or find himself in trouble.  His father recognized the situation, and knew that he had to find a way to help protect his son.  He took Erik to meet a man named Sandayu Momochi, who was the head of security for the Mining concern, and taught martial arts and self defense to the company’s security teams.  He also learned to apply this discipline to his other studies.  Over the years Eric became Momochi’s top student and began to master many of the ancient warrior arts that had been handed down through Momochi’s family for generations.
As a  young man, Eric still managed to get into a bit of trouble from time to time.  After one particular incident, where Erik almost single handedly defended his friends from a street gang that was causing trouble in their community, Erik drew the attention of the local constable.  The constable saw a lot of potential in Erik and wanted to help guide him.  Erik began working with the constable and his men, and together over time, they brought down one of the major crime families of Centaurus VII.  The Constable knew that Erik Drogo  needed to get away from  Centaurus VII and recommended him for StarFleet academy.
Erik Drogo excelled at the academy and was very happy there.  He excelled at the military courses and learned about combat strategy and tactics.  He was of course the top in his class in hand to hand combat skills and was thrilled to learn  martial arts skills from  other  parts of the federation.  He also learned sniper and survival skills. After the Academy, Erik joined worked his way up to being a team leader in a Starfleet Intelligence special ops unit.  He was known for his skills at infiltration and stealth, and for his almost uncanny ability to sense danger or a trap. His team members always knew that Drogo would do anything  to protect them, even if it meant disobeying orders or standing up to his superiors.
On one mission, Erik Drogo was assigned to go undercover  to try to root out a clandestine organization that was operating within Starfleet itself.   Erik foiled an assassination attempt on a Federation Ambassador and uncovered a conspiracy that threatened Starfleet and the Federation.  Once again, Erik Drogo had made dangerous enemies, and this time it was not certain that even Starfleet could protect him.  After several attempts were made on his life, it was decided that the best thing to do was to seal his records and assign him to a ship on the far reaches of Federation space.  That is how he came to be on board the Starship Deimos.  Only the captain knows why Drogo has been assigned to him, but even he does not have access to much of Drogo’s files.
The one thing that has been constant through Drogo’s life is that the is very protective of his crew mates.  If there is ever trouble, he is the one that you want watching your back.

Kestra Kitain  
A Betazoid female from the Fourth House of Betazed, she was born with her empathy/ telepathy already active with all the complications that come with that. She received intensive counseling and training to control her abilities as much as possible and cope with them being too strong to fully control. That said, they do occasionally overwhelm her resulting in bipolar-like symptoms.

She joined Starfleet Academy to train for a career that would limit the amount of people around her but progressed slower than usual to compensate for being periodically overwhelmed by the thoughts and feelings of her classmates. As a result, she is joining the crew of the Tristan as an ensign rather than a full officer.  

When off duty, she enjoys art as a hobby and keeps a sketchbook with her almost all the time. She prefers science and engineering duty but is very good with communications. She has a brother on another ship and a half-sister still on Betazed.

Called out of “retirement” to command the U.S.S. Deimos.

All these years later, I get to do it again...but now the toys are MUCH cooler."

Serrek's mother died when he was a young boy, and he was raised by his father, a respected scientist on Vulcan. He is a great admirer of Spock and his father Sarak. Serrek graduated from the Vulcan Academy with honors and was an up and coming scientist at a Vulcan observatory when his father suddenly passed away of unknown causes, which left Serrek with several questions yet to be answered.

While on a short leave of absence, he was recruited by Captain James Moriarty Pike to join Starfleet. He served aboard the USS Icarus, which was badly damaged when it was sabotaged by an Andorian crew member, later found to be a double agent. When the Icarus was being repaired, Serrek accepted a commission aboard the USS Excelsior under Captain Hikaru Sulu. He was on duty when the Klingon moon Praxis was destroyed by a subspace shock wave. 

Like most Vulcans, Serrek normally  does not exhibit his emotions, it is said that during the time of pon farr, he is more demonstrative than most of his kind under those circumstances, and considerably much more violent. It is advisable to give him a very wide berth during this time.

Ensign Ravusi is a Reticulan from Zeta Reticula I-A. His race may have visited Earth in the past, leading to some rather unusual reactions when first contact between Earth and Zeta Reticula I-A was made. His race "speaks" via telepathy, and they are fond of reciting poetry, often of a religious nature. Ravusi himself is over 200 years old, and joined Starfleet simply as a chance of exploring the universe. No one has ever seen Ravusi eat, leading many to speculate that his race absorbs energy from light.

Captain CT Walker was born to the parents of John and Helen Walker in Huntsville, AL Earth. CT was the only child of John and Helen. He was raised on a small farm right outside of Huntsville, where he worked the fields with his father. Upon graduation from high school, CT did not want to continue life on a small farm, so he joined Starfleet because he knew there was more to life than just being in Alabama. CT graduated in the top 15 of his class, which was very remarkable considering no one in his family had ever went into anything like this. Starfleet quickly moved CT up through the ranks because of his quick thinking ability. As a Commander, CT saved the lives of a small farming community. Being raised on a farm, CT knew exactly what to do to save the lives of this farming community. Starfleet was so impressed with this that they promoted CT to Captain. In a ceremony on the colony planet, while thanking Starfleet for the promotion, Walker gave "thanks to God for the strength and knowledge of how to handle the situation." Unfortunately, the colony was established by members of the Jainists some of whom objected strongly to his remarks. Starfleet quietly reprimanded him for insensitivity, and assigned him and the Tristan to what is commonly known as "The Back Forty-ish."

Randy Landers has been a fan of Star Trek since the early 1970's. He began writing for fanzines in the mid-70's, and in 1979, published his first fanzine, Stardate. To date, Randy has published over 40,000 copies of 300+ zines. These zines have been read by more than 5000 fans over 30 years. Contributors to these zines have included well known science fiction writers (and more than a few Star Trek pro-novelists). Orion Press has attended more than 100 Star Trek conventions, and even helped run a few. Orion Press continues to produce 2-4 zines each year.

A long-time fan of Star Trek fan films, Randy made the decision in December 2009 to step into producing fan films of his own, featuring a new ship, a new crew, and having science fiction as the basis for its episodes while concentrating on character studies (humorous and serious) in vignettes (short films).
