This type of discussion is an old DITL tradition, and one I thought appropriate for this topic. i'm currently in Book Three of the DS9 relaunch series "Mission Gamma" and thought a discussion about DS9s new characters, or whats happening with her originial ones might be interesting.
So, to start things off, I present Commander Elias Vaughn, the new XO of DS9. Commander Vaughn is over a hundred years old, and served primarily in Intelligence and Black Ops. He was burnted out and disillusioned, considering retirement until while on board the E-E which was in the Badlands, an old Cardassian Freighter was found, which was carrying the Bajoran Orb of Memory. He remembered what he'd really wanted in life when he was young, which was to explore, so after DS9s then XO was killed, he took the job.
Seems his estranged daughter Ensign Prynn Tanmei is also assigned to DS9 as the Defiants Conn Officer, and for the first several books hates the man as she blames him for the death of her mother. In Book 2 of Mission Gamma their relationship started to mend, and they're on speaking terms again.
So, anybody got anything on Commander Vaughn?
They say that in the Army,
the women are mighty fine.
They look like Phyllis Diller,
and walk like Frankenstein.
