Órlaith Sarah Murphy (b. July 23, 2421) is a Captain attached to Starfleet Academy as a pilot instructor.  Her official Federation records shows she was born on a remote colony planet in 2356, as the daughter of Sarah and Sean Murphy.  The Murphy’s are cousins to Captain Rebecca Talon

However,  the truth is her true origins with the help of Lieutenant Riandri Nalam a new identity was built. Órlaith is actually the daughter of Dominus and Bellitor, alternate reality versions of Captain Nicholas Ryder and Rebecca Talon. Using Dominion artificial growth and genetic memory techniques she and her brother Ian were artificially aged to adults.  In July of 2374 she betrayed her tyrant family and saved the lives of several of the Denver crew.

Aboard the Denver she begain working with Lieutenant Marcus D. Ming as his apprentice. In late 2374, she earned an “Acting Ensign” commission from Captain Talon. She served in Ming’s wing as a junior pilot until the end of the war.


At the Academy Órlaith, met her future ex-husband, Cory Chantry, which she opted not to take his name.  The couple have three kids together.  Her oldest Mindy, is 12, Elizabeth is 10, and Xander is five.

Órlaith thrived in the structure of Starfleet Academy, often referred to as a “good soldier”.  While, she struggled with the social aspect of it, she excelled academically due to the genetic manipulation Bellitor had given her.

In 2380 she graduated 5th in her class with a degree in aeronautical engineering.

USS ANTIETAM (2380-2385)

In 2380, upon graduation from the Academy, Órlaith was assigned to the USS Antietam, an Akira-class starship, as a pilot. She quickly became a valued member of the crew, and her exceptional piloting skills proved invaluable in several critical missions. She also worked closely with Chief Engineer Lieutenant Commander Marcus Olivetti to develop and test new propulsion systems for the Antietam.

In 2385, Órlaith was promoted to the position of Assistant Chief Flight Control Officer aboard the Antietam. As a senior officer, she was responsible for mentoring and training new pilots, and she played a key role in the success of several important missions. She was also part of the team that tested and implemented the experimental slipstream drive, which significantly improved the Antietam’s speed and maneuverability.

USS Erebus & VFA-321 (2385-2389)

In 2385, Órlaith was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and was given the position of Squadron Commander of VFA-321 aboard the USS Erebus NX-1334-A. As the leader of the squadron, she was responsible for the security and defense of the ship, overseeing the training and operations of her team.

During her tenure on the USS Erebus, Órlaith led her squadron through several conflicts, including a skirmish with a group of rogue Klingon ships and an ongoing battle with the Breen. In recognition of her exceptional leadership, she was honored with the Starfleet Silver Palm for her contributions to the success of the USS Erebus’s missions.

In addition to her military accomplishments, Órlaith is also recognized for her interpersonal skills and her ability to inspire her team. Under her command, VFA-321 became one of the most effective and efficient squadrons in Starfleet.

Starfleet Academy (2389-2390)

In 2389, Órlaith Murphy made the difficult decision to leave her post as a squadron command of VFA-321 aboard the USS Erebus. She had been offered the opportunity to serve as a pilot instructor at Starfleet Academy. Her marriage to Cory was on the rocks and in an effort to be with her daughter and save her marriage she chose the assignment on Earth.

Upon arriving at Starfleet Academy, Murphy quickly settled into her new role as a pilot instructor. She found the work to be both challenging and rewarding, as she was able to share her love of flying with the next generation of Starfleet officers.

Murphy’s expertise and dedication quickly earned her the respect and admiration of her students, as well as her fellow instructors. She relished in the opportunity to mentor and guide her students, instilling in them the skills and values necessary to succeed as Starfleet pilots.

Return to Erebus (2390-2400)

In 2390 the long-time Commander Air Group (CAG), Captain Jake Reynolds retired from Starfleet.   He had recommended Órlaith to replace him.  With special dispensation to take her family with her she accepted the position with a promotion to full Commander.

While on the Erebus her daughter Elizabeth was born and a few years later Xander was born.

For a time she and Cory were doing well, but ultimately the marriage couldn’t be saved an in 2396 the two divorced and Cory took the kids with him to Starbase 75 where he became the chief tactical officer.

USS Crazy Horse (2400-2401)

In 2400 Captain Aoife McKenzie and Commander Nicholas Halstead dissappeared after a device was discovered on a planet that sent them to Avalon.  To replace the captain Órlaith was offered the position and was promoted to replace them.

In late 2400 the Crazy Horse was dispatched to the Delta Quadrant to take advantage of the surge of blood dilithium.  The crew established a mining outpost on a planet dubbed Eden in the Gantz System.

The mission would end in the near destruction of the Crazy Horse after a confrontation with the Devore while destroying the Blood Dilithium.  The USS Mackenzie rescued the crew and towed the ship back to base.  Due to its age the ship was decommissioned in lieu of repair.

Starfleet Academy (2401-2401)

Starfleet blamed Órlaith for the loss of the Crazy Horse. She was censured and was not given another command. With her career seemingly dead in the water she took a posting at Starfleet Academy as a pilot instructor.
