Delta Exploration Initiative


Vice Admiral Jonathan Knox
Director & Task Force Commanding Officer

Reserved and polite, Knox is the model of a Starfleet admiral. After spending nearly twenty years commanding starships, he reluctantly accepted promotion and has a reputation for being down-to-earth, practical, and concerned chiefly with the welfare of the people under his command.

Rear Admiral Niana Tondro
Deputy Director

Tondro has had a long and storied history in Starfleet, and an interesting life in general. She is known for being the consummate listener and diplomat, much like the rest of her species. She excels at getting people into a room and forcing them to see things from alternate points of view, to come to a mutually beneficial conclusion. She is a scientist, a commanding presence on the field, and to those lucky enough to know her intimately, a stalwart friend and compatriot.

Her primary duties, beyond ensuring that courts-martial proceed as they should, is consulting with the TFCO on any legal matters related to Task Force operations.

Commodore Thomas Belvedere
Starfleet Operations Liaison

Assiduous and conservative, Belvedere always considers every option before making a decision and is a certified workaholic. While he is very dedicated to the Federation's ideals, he is not one to allow that to get in the way of his own personal advancement.

Captain Marcus Bancroft
Chief of Staff

Marcus Bancroft is Admiral Knox's Chief of Staff. He manages the staff officers in the Delta Exploration Initiative--including some who outrank him--along with the admiral's schedule and other logistical matters. It's his job to anticipate what Knox will need before the admiral even knows that he needs it. He is preternaturally advanced in rank for a 30-year-old, but he carries himself with the authority of someone much older. He is taciturn, uptight, and thoroughly professional.

Commander Zosyor Imiam
Strategic Operations Officer

Zosyor is an experienced tactician and officer. She is highly focused on the defense of the Federation and prefers tactical solutions to diplomatic ones. Her function in the Delta Exploration Initiative is to develop tactical policy for vessels operating in the Delta Quadrant, while also liaising between Starfleet Intelligence, Starfleet Security, and Starfleet Tactical to help the command staff make operational decisions.

Commander Noah Slater
Starfleet Corps of Engineers Liaison

Noah Slater is a brilliant engineer, but he's not really a people person. It's not that he doesn't like them, he's just not really aware of them most of the time. His primary function is to examine new technology encountered in the Delta Quadrant and to coordinate with the Starfleet Corps of Engineers to build anything that might be needed for the Delta Exploration Initiative.

Captain Thimaa
Starfleet Science Liaison

Thimaa is one of the most decorated exologists in the Federation and has developed several new techniques for cataloging and examining alien species and phenomena. She has served most of her career on starbases and has command rank, though she has not commanded a starship. Her responsibility is collating and auditing the scientific data being sent back through the wormhole, making sure that it gets to the appropriate teams and that TF38 ships are following proper protocol.

Lieutenant Commander Stephanie Lawrence
Aide-de-Camp to Admiral Knox

Lawrence is Admiral Knox's loyal aide-de-camp and is primarily responsible for his personal logistics, such as scheduling, meals, transportation, etc. She is fiercely intelligent and unafraid to stand up for herself.
