Featured Crew: Elizabeth Shelby


Featured Crew articles spotlight familiar characters not currently covered by official stats. Each article will typically feature a Major NPC version of the character, as well as a playable Main Character version (Core Rulebook compliant) that you can hand out to a player for immediate play (such as for a demo or convention game).

Commander Elizabeth Shelby appeared in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes, “The Best of Both Worlds, Parts I and II”. She is highly ambitious, aiming to fast-track up the ranks as quickly as she can. Her past engineering background had prepared her to become one of the foremost experts in the Borg in Starfleet Tactical, and after the Locutus incident (2366-67) she was re-assigned to Starfleet headquarters to help rebuild the fleet.

Novelizations had placed her aboard the U.S.S. Chekov and then the U.S.S. Excalibur, but you are free to re-assign her where needed for your campaign. She would make an excellent Executive Officer aboard a starship, a consultant on Federation defenses against the Borg, Commander of a Federation space station, or a Shipyard overseer. Players may also find her a good choice if they wish to play an XO with strong tactical and engineering backgrounds.

  1. This is awesome! I always loved Shelby and wish she had received a few more stints as a recurring character. The tension between her and Riker was awesome when he was forced into the big chair.
