USS Sentinel

Visit Site

The year is 2389 and the Beta Quadrant is is turmoil.

It has only been a year since the destruction of Romulus in the Hobus hypernova and the Romulan Star Empire has resealed its borders, the Klingons have erupted into a civil war and the Gorn have invaded the Canterra sector. Starfleet’s Task Force 93 is now responsible for safeguarding the Raeyan Transit Corridor and keeping the peace; it is a trying time for the three major powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Welcome to the USS Sentinel, I am Commander James McCullen. The USS Sentinel is an Intrepid-class starship that is part of Task Force 93’s ‘Themis Task Group’ in Starfleet’s Bravo Fleet. The Sentinel’s primary focus is exploration and science-based discovery, but with the current state of the galaxy, we may be called upon to carry out other duties for the Federation.


Captain Jim McCullen
Commanding Officer

Jim McCullen is a career Starfleet officer. He entered Starfleet Academy straight out of high school and has served ever since. He met, wooed and married his wife, had six children and three dogs, all while serving in Starfleet. After seeing the last of his children out of the nest, Jim decided it was time to step up from being executive officer, a position he'd held for nearly six years, to command of his own vessel.

With a background in tactical and strategic operations, Jim has been on the front-lines of Starfleet's recent conflicts for most of his career and has earned a reputation as a steadfast, reliable man to have around. Steady in a fight, cool in a pinch and on top of his crew.

Lieutenant Commander Temerant Bast
Executive Officer

A bit shy at first approach, Temerant Lochees was studious, methodical, and a bit of a perfectionist. Inspired by his father’s experiences as a joined Trill, he petitioned the Trill Symbiosis Commission for joining. After a rigorous process, he was finally selected, but had to wait four years before the Bast symbiont became available. Joining gave him deeper wisdom, aplomb and self-confidence, and broadened his artistic interests.

Lieutenant Oliver Ross
Chief Operations Officer

Oliver and his twin sister Olivia was born in the City of Chicago, Earth to Kyle and Mason Ross; civilian researchers. Much like their brother Elias, the twins were a surprise as it was believed that Mason was thought unable to conceive. Oliver was a typical energetic child who often got into trouble along with his older brother.

During his teenage year Oliver grew fascinated by his parents work and often shadowed his father who was working on enhancing communications systems on Starships. It was the hope of his parents that Oliver would follow in their footsteps, but that all changed when Oliver decided to join Star Fleet instead.

Lieutenant Mia Makarova
Chief Medical Officer

Amelia is the Daughter of Civilian Contractors, working on freighters and Earth-based corporate companies. After being born into her more successful Brother's shadow, Mia worked through Starfleet, resigned to the solitary study of medicine and xenobiology. She went through Starfleet Academy with a more than common irritable bedside manner. Although working in the Embassy on Qonos certainly helped her develop a thicker skin.

After serving aboard Earth Spacedock as an assistant for what seemed like an eternity, she was not unnoticed by her superiors at Starfleet Medical. Mia was offered a position on the USS Sentinel by Admiral Fennis during a superficial checkup. Taking up this offer, she traveled to Starbase 400 to accept the role of Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Sentinel.

Lieutenant Araan Ragez
Chief Science Officer

Most people would classify Araan as a somewhat reserved individual, someone who is careful and measured in everything that they do and say. Loyalty to his shipmates is extremely important to him, and he will often come to their defense if they are spoken ill of by somebody else. Above all, Araan is a seeker of scientific and universal truth. He sees it as his duty to unlock the secrets of the universe and share them with everybody. Araan insists on strict professionalism from those he supervises, and conducts himself similarly.

Araan is a recognized expert in both Cosmology and Quantum Theory. Although he does not hold a PhD, much of the theoretical and practical work that he has done is on that level. Araan is an efficient organizer and leads a highly disciplined department.
