Rank & Address

Lieutenant Commander Keli


Chief Security & Tactical Officer
USS Odyssey



14th November 2362

Coridan Prime


Keli is the chief security & tactical officer on board the USS Odyssey. A calm and collected individual, Keli is known for her friendly mannerism as well as her fierceness on the battlefield.


When not out in the field or on patrol, Keli always keeps her long black curly hair down and behind her shoulders. If she requires it to be tied back, then normally she would pull it back into a bun (on the odd occasions it has been pigtails). Keli is extremely fit and maintains her health and fitness through a daily regime that she strictly follows. She is fast on her feet and is very nimble when engaging in hand-to-hand combat.

  • Height: 5′ 5″ (1.65 m)
  • Weight: 121 lbs
  • Hair: Black
  • Eyes: Brown


Keli is a skilled and levelled headed person, often finding the best solutions in almost every tactical situation she finds herself in. Quick on her feet and quick with a plan, she is known for her patience and resilience in any dangerous situation. She is very supportive and caring for her colleagues and she gives advice often.

Strengths & Weaknesses

An extremely friendly individual, Keli’s compassion for others has no end. She is a self-declared optimist, something she has developed ever since joining Starfleet. Though this is one of her strongest qualities, which includes putting others’ needs before her own, this can also be her greatest weakness. This is down to the fact that Keli has known people to take advantage of her kindness and generosity, which highly frustrates her.

Keli’s academic ability is high, as she was an eager pupil growing up and was always curious about everything. As a result, this ensures she can always give her best advice and ideas in any circumstance. A confident observer, Keli is quiet in any new environment as she is always assessing what is happening around her to ensure she is confident about what is happening and could happen. Though her zeal for security and tactical is high, her eagerness to bring in other fields of expertise is strong – especially engineering. She is always fascinated with any trick or gadget that can help her out in the field, this is why she was such an excellent hazard team leader.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Though joining Starfleet was never her initial plan when growing up, her change of heart and career has made her rethink many aspects of her life. She is not driven by promotions or medals, instead, she enjoys the work each day and has found a niche on the Odyssey that she wants to continue to do for some time. Becoming chief security and tactical officer was a position she was prepared for by her predecessor, mentor and friend, Cline Lenjir. She wishes to remain in this position for some time to enjoy it and develop the people that Lenjir was eager to take forward.



  • Mother: Karev
  • Father:  Malco
  • Sister: Kylieev


Early Life

Born and raised on Coridan Prime, Keli was the eldest daughter of Karev and Malco who ran the family business of a multi-generational dilithium mining operation. Though her family was rich due to their business, Keli was brought up to be humble for her privileged life. This was an element that her mother instilled in her and her sister when they were teenagers. As part of the outreach work that their business operated, after the end of the Dominion War, Karev would take her daughters to accompany her in leading relief efforts to the worlds devastated by the former conflict. A majority of them were Cardassian worlds which were left to ruins in the closing days of the war. Supporting refugees by setting up camps, and providing food and medical aid made the right impact that Karev wanted for her daughters. Between school and her charity work, Keli would spend time helping out and getting to know the ins and outs of the family-owned business at the ground level. Mining was nothing exciting, but Keli found the entire process of digging fascinating.

Interested in the field of geology, Keli planned to pursue this further after finishing school, however, she decided to undertake a job within her family’s charity organisation working with those worlds along the Federation-Cardassian border. What was meant to be a three-month trip, turned into two years. While on Minos Korva with friends, she was starting to reconsider her life choices at the age of 20, and when she walked past a Starfleet recruitment booth along the town square she was intrigued by the prospect of joining. It took her a fortnight to finally decide that joining Starfleet was something she wanted to do. After passing the entrance exams and other tests, she left Minos Korva and was sent to the campus on Mellstoxx III.

Starfleet Career

Early Career

Her first year at Starfleet Academy was pretty standard, just like every other cadet past and present. She excelled in small unit tactics, was a natural with her sidearm training and took an interest in forensics. She had planned to take on geology as her field of expertise, but with a bit of convincing from her professors and instructors, she put her full focus on forensics. Keli performed well in all areas of her study and was able to find a good balance between work and play. Something she would maintain for the rest of her career.

USS Themis (NCC-76554)

After graduation, Keli joined the recently launched Ross-class starship, USS Themis as an ensign within the security department. Her main line of work was as an investigation officer, but when not required for such assignments, she was often assigned to a range of other duties. This varied work for the next three years worked to her advantage as she was able to gain a wider range of experience. While in this role she undertook some further post-graduate courses in starship operations and would often volunteer to take extra shifts in other departments as a helping hand or cover for other security officers. Her generosity would become well-known among the crew, but others would lean on it too much. Eventually, she realised this and when the opportunity to move on came up, she decided to be a bit selfish and apply for a new ship.

USS Odyssey (NCC-80000)

In 2393, she joined the USS Odyssey after a promotion to lieutenant junior grade. Due to her completion of training and experience, she became the relief officer at the security and tactical position during the gamma shift. Though she had to restart her career again on the Odyssey in the sense of getting to know a whole new (larger) crew, it was the right type of challenge she had longed for. The Odyssey was one of Starfleet’s premier vessels and was doing a lot of work along the former Romulan Neutral Zone, which Keli was more than happy to be involved with and fall back on her own experience with when called upon for away team missions.

She learnt a lot under her new department head, Cline Lenjir, who ran daily meetings with his shift leaders. The two developed a sort of brother-sister relationship and when the opportunity rose for them to develop their own Hazard Team on board the ship, Cline selected Keli to lead the alpha team. A few months later and he was in need of a new deputy, and he chose Keli. She remained in this position for the next five years and during this time she attended the advanced tactical training course. Come 2400, she was surprised when Lenjir made the decision to leave the ship to join her old ship, the Themis. After serving seven years on the Odyssey, she was honoured when Captain McCallister called her into his ready room and offered her the department head job. She accepted on the dot the promotion to full lieutenant.
