USS Devonshire

The Devonshire recently completed a refit cycle at Providence Fleet Yards and is assigned to Task Force 93 to assist with it’s multitude of objectives. Taking full advantage of the modular Insignia class design, she is fitted with an array of modules to support as many of those objectives as possible without any additional downtime. Due to the Gorn Incursion of the Cestus and Canterra sectors, as well as the increasing tensions in the area of operations caused by the ongoing Klingon Civil War, a Type VIII hangar module for the two squadrons of fighters and their support personnel, has been installed…along with a Command and Support Barracks for a Marine Special Operations and RECON Force. The ship has been outfitted with both science and medical modules to expand her humanitarian aid abilities, as well as a colonization/evacuation module to assist in settling the Raeyan Transit Corridor or evacuating civilians out of harm’s way should the Gorn press further into Federation territory, or the fighting inside the Klingon Empire spills across the border. Two Type VI combat modules are waiting in reserve at Providence, for the Devonshire’s use should further hostilities erupt. In total, the Devonshire is prepared to undertake operations covering the full spectrum of Task Force 93’s duties, wherever a need may arise across the Beta Quadrant.

Lieutenant T'Lorok “Lancer” Karon
Wing Commander

T’Lrok has the classic Romulan male appearance, pale skin, black hair in the distinctive style, pointed ears, eyebrow ridges and his face usually carries a thin smile, bordering on a sneer.

T'Lrok is most often arrogant, direct, forceful and dismissive, with a well-developed Romulan superiority complex.
However, when T’Lok chooses, he can be polite, respectful, well-mannered and almost charming.
His natural arrogance is as much a part of his cultural heritage as it is based on his innate ability – he is an exceptional small-craft pilot.

This natural skill has been called reckless and dangerous by some and many wonder when his luck will run out. An event T’Lok himself seems to believe will never occur.

She trains and drills relentlessly and prides herself on running a department that can handle anything the universe throws at it.

Her detractors call her hypocritical, quick to criticise a crewman for being out of regs, while at the same time wearing an intricate alien hairstyle herself.

First Lieutenant Grayson MacKenzie
Marine Commander

Grayson is a well built deceptively strong looking man in his early 30's. If asked which he almost never is, he would describe himself as a good looking male with all the right attributes. He is well muscled and well proportioned if a little shorter than he would have liked. Something that he blames genetics for more than anything else. You would not know just by looking at him that he was born female.
