My name is Derek, and I’ll be playing Aera Darrhi, MD. I’m a long-time role player (usually a GM when around a table) but I spent about 7 years writing Star Trek RP on a forum as a play-by-post format. I loved it, but of course life interjects at times.
I’m a Canadian! I grew up in the Vancouver BC area, but decided to pursue a career in the Royal Canadian Air Force, so I move all over Canada now. Been serving as an officer for about a decade now, and I find my real life leadership style is actually heavily informed by Star Trek. How I deal with scenarios, and with my awesome team usually passes through my “would this fly on a Federation starship” filter haha.
Finally, I have an academic background in cultural anthropology so I get really nerdy about culture and exploration. I do love a lot of Sci-Fi other than Trek, as well as fantasy. But I’m sure you’ll all get the chance to hear plenty about all of that from me as we write together!
See you out there!
