NAME: Warren Price
DATE of BIRTH: November 1951
PLANET of ORIGIN: Earth, United States, New Jersey
ENTERED STARFLEET: March 15, 1995
ENTERED MAQUIS FORCES: June 14, 1998
In 1994 there was a Star Trek fan club that was forming in December of 1994. So I went to the meeting and liked what I heard and joined Starfleet in January of 1995. During the next year I served as Chief of Operations. In January of 1996, with the resignation of our Chief of Communication Officer, I took over our newsletter and I am still the publisher. In June of 1996 our Commanding Officer stepped down and I became the Commanding Officer. We won "Shuttle of the Year" in Region One in 1996. I have completed Officer Training school and Officer Command College. In November of 1996 our shuttle was commissioned as a Star Ship. The Star Ship USS Providencea Gemini Class Exploratory Cruiser. I have been to several Region One Summits and International Conferences.
Starfleet is divided into Regions and when I heard about a new department in Region One called the Alien Ambassador Corps (ACC), I applied for the RDC (Regional Department Chief). Even though I wasn't selected as RDC, I am very glad to be the Maquis Ambassador to the ACC in region one Starfleet. I served as R1 Quartermaster in 2001 and 2002 and was RDC of Computer Operations (CompOps) from 2002 to 2004. During the election for R1 Regional Coordinator in 2004, I was asked to be the Senior Captains/Section Reps Program Director and I accepted.
I am the Vice-Commander for the MidSouth Squadron. The MidSouth Squadron consist of the following Starships of the Region 1, Sector 1, Mid-South Area of patrol: USS Aeon, USS Mark Twain, USS Providence, USS Legend SS Nikola Tesla, USS Questar(Honorary Member) The purpose of The MidSouth Squadron is to act as a central point for the gathering of information to be distributed to each of the member Starships pertaining to news and events each ship has, to coordinate gathering of members of the Ships of the Squadron, if needed, and to establish a more formal tie between these Starship.
decided to be a Maquis during my second year in Starfleet and
about the time Voyager started on TV. The Marquis intrigued me
and there's not a lot of information. I am like the Maquis on
Voyager that work together with Starfleet personal. I also belong
to UFA (United Fandom Association), IFC (International Fandom
Council) and CTF (CyberTrek Force).
I joined Maquis Forces International in June of 1998. I was promoted to Commodore on January 25, 1999.
I head up a new department within the Coordinator Council that was formed in January 1999. The department is called the Maquis Diplomatic Corps. I was appointed to be the Zone 2 Coordinator in 2003.
I would like to give you my Bio on my persona. My name is Tigri
K'Tel born 2347 in the colony at Setlik III. We escaped the
massacre at Setlik and settled on a new colony on New Providence.
I was admitted to Starfleet Academy and graduated in the year
2367 and served aboard the USS Fearless NCC 14598 for 4 years. My
parents left New Providence one year before the Borg attacked and
settled at the colony on Dorvon V. My parents were outraged by
the massacre on Setlik III in 2347, where several family members
and friends were killed by Cardassians. They joined the Maquis
movement and was a part of the Maquis Rebels that destroyed the
Cardassian freighter Bok'nor, which occurred at Deep Space 9 in
2370. My parents were killed by the Federation in what I learned
later was an accidental shooting. Being bitter towards the
Federation and the Cardassians, I resigned from Starfleet and
joined the Maquis in 2371. I was on the Raider that was commanded
by Chakotay. Needless to say you know what happens next. Yes, the
Badlands. Next thing I knew we were on Voyager. Here's where my
bitterness turned sweet. I learned that Starfleet and Maquis can
work side by side given we put away our own prejudices. I spent 2
years in the Delta Quadrant before some anomaly transported me
back to the Alpha Quadrant. I am patroling in the area known as
Jackson Tennessee promoting Star Trek Fandom.

I was born and raised in Lexington, Ky. I have two older sisters who are twins and one older brother. My mom is still living in Lexington along with my siblings (my father is deceased). I'm happily married to the former Audrey L. Hudson; we have two wonderful kids (Kalyn and Harrison), and one on the way (will hopefully arrive in October of this year). I started college at the University of Ky studying mechanical engineering but finished at Tennessee State University in Nashville in 12/87. I came to Jackson in February of 1988 and began working for Procter & Gamble - Pringles. Ten years later, I'm still working for P&G, and supporting Pringles (thankfully). I've been involved in Starfleet since March of 1994 when we first began acting on the dream of establishing a starship here. I'm now serving as the first officer of the USS Providence. In other community affairs...I'm a member of West Bemis Missionary Baptist Church. I serve as chairman of the trustees, treasurer, teach Sunday School, and am training to become a deacon. I'm the immediate past president of the Boys & Girls Club of Jackson Board of Directors, I'm president-elect of the Junior Achievement Board of Directors-Jackson/Madison Co. I teach an aerobics class three times a week at the T. R. White Sportsplex. I'm leading several masonic organizations...serving as High Priest of the Lane Chapter #16, Royal Arch Masons, Illustrious Potentate, Zarah Temple #151, Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, and District Deputy Grand Master for Districts 1, 8 & 11, Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge-State of Tennessee. I'll stop there. I've also earned my masters degree from the University of TN, while working full time. I'm currently working to earn my Ph.d in industrial systems engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I have about 1 year left to go...I'll invite everyone if the Lord sees fit for me to graduate. Bored yet? I am, so I'll stop there (even though I could go on). Don't ask me how I do it; I give all credit, praise and glory to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I also could not manage to do so much without my loving wife, Audrey. She has been and continues to be extremely patient and supportive.

ENTERED STARFLEET: April 29, 1994
My name is Audrey Lynne Hudson French. I was born and reared in Louisville, Kentucky. I attended the public schools there and graduated from Atherton High School in 1981. That Fall, I started at the University of Kentucky on an academic scholarship. Although my dream of becoming a Physical Therapist did not materialize during my time there, I did manage to get something good out of the experience---Karl W. French.
fter I left the university, I attended Roy's Of Louisville Beauty Academy and became a hairstylist in 1985. I was still happily dating Karl at the time. In the fall of 1990, he became my better half. I moved to Jackson in 1991 and I have been working at Martha's Salon ever since. Karl and I have been blessed with two beautiful children and in October, we will become parents for the third time.
I was never much of a "Trekkie", but Karl was so into Star Trek and everything surrounding it, that it just kind of rubbed off. When he and Carolyn Pate first started talking about getting a group together, I thought it would be another great way for us to have some fun together, so I tagged along to the meetings and the more I went , the more interested I became. The rest is history, and now I stand before you, the Second Officer of the U.S.S. Providence.

PLANET of ORIGIN: Earth, United States, MO
ENTERED STARFLEET: January 1990
I joined Starfleet in 1990 and was a member of the Cape Girardeau chapter for 6 months. I moved to Los Angeles for a new job and served with the LA chapter for 6 months. Then I moved to Houston where I commanded a KAG (Klingon Assault Group) chapter for 3 years. In 2000, I rejoined Starfleet and served as Chief Medical Officer of the USS Spiritwolf in Houston. Then, I transfered to the USS Aurora Vulcanus (correspondence chapter) due to being unable to participate in any activities. I was out of work, so I moved back to my hometown of Kennett, Missouri, in 2002. Getting back on my feet, I searched for a nearby chapter and found the USS Providence, transfering to it in 2003. I am a graduate of Starfleet's Officer Training school and Officers Command College.
Being a country doctor in a small Missouri town on the planet Earth, I was recruited by Starfleet to help fill vacancies caused by the many conflicts the Federation had been involved in over the years, most notably the 1st Borg war. I served aboard the USS Lexington with the Medical Staff for three years. Then I was given the opportunity to serve with the Imperial Klingon Battle Cruiser K'pok during an exchange of crew personnel. After a brief tour of duty, I requested permanent assignment just as the Dominion War was beginning. The K'pok served valiantly in several battles, and my on-the-job training in Klingon medicine earned many awards from the Klingon High Command. I returned to Starfleet aboard the USS Spiritwolf and saw action in the 2nd Borg war. I requested to be transfered to the USS Providence to fill their vacant CMO position, where I now serve with the finest crew in Starfleet.

Place of Birth - Earth
Parents - K'enoth and Nancy Cox assumed deceased.
In 2364 K'enoth Cox and his family (wife and son) set off to start a colony on Phonex 2 along with 60 other people. In 2265, Starfleet Starship, USS Mayday doing a routine check on the colony, found only one colonist a young boy in medical stasis. No other colonist were found. No signs of an attack or devastation was found. It was as if the colonist just left leaving behind the toddler. The disappearance of the colonist still remains a mystery. The 2 year old was later adopted by the Chief of Engineering and his wife of the USS Mayday. In 2380, I, being the 2 year old child joined Starfleet and in 2382 graduated Starfleet Academy. My first assignment was aboard the USS Utah as an engineering mate under the command of Captain Jonathan Frost. During my 3 years aboard I served with distinction, Captain Frost saw potenial and skills in me dealing with engineering. He encouraged me to go into Starfleet research and development. I worked on many projects from the galaxy class to several other projects which were classified. Till the tragedy of Wolf 359 and the destruction of a large portion of the ships in Starfleet, which opened up an oportunity to get a design that I and Science Officer Larry Tollette had been working on, but couldn't get approved. Commander Nea Shelby saw the potenial for the design and gave the go ahead. Upon completion of the second Gemini Class Starship named USS Providence. I and Science Officer signed on. I became Chief of Engineering under the command of Warren Price where I serve to this day. There is a four year gap in my Starfleet record, which coincides with all the special projects. All access to that information has been classifed.
NAME: Connie Elizabeth Cox

DATE of BIRTH: March 1963
PLANET of ORIGIN: Earth, United States, Milan Tn.
ENTERED STARFLEET: January 29, 1999
I decided to join Starfleet at first to spend more time with my husband. He's a devout Star Trek fan. Then I met the Crew of the USS Providence. They made me feel right at home.
In 1998 there was a Star Trek fan club meeting at the Jackson Holiday Inn. My husband and a friend of ours, who's also a Trekkie, talked me into going. I don't really know alot about Star Trek, but I'm learning. I become a member in 1999 and was given the title of Quatermaster. I don't exactly know what all a Quartermaster jobs are, but I've never walked away from a challange.
Purpose - My purpose in this group is to serve my ship with pride and dignity, and to also boost the morale of my fellow crew members.
I was born on Earth to a human father and a Betazoid mother. That makes me half human and half betazoid. My father was a Starfleet Diplomat and my mother was a betazoid diplomat who, when she married my father, joined Starfleet Diplomatic Corps. I grew up in different places of the Galaxy because my parents mission in life was for their offspring to see how other beingslived and to try to find a place where we could all fit in. I was born in the year of 2363. Our family traveled so much that we never really got close to a lot of people. When I turned 21 in the year 2384, I joined Starfleet. I decided that it was time for me to try and settle down and stay at one place for a while. When I graduated two years later, my first assignment was a job aboard the USS Nolinck. It was one of the greatest ship I ever served on. We are a peace seeking ship. It is used by Diplomats to seek resolution by warring factions. I served aboard the ship for 10 years until I made a transfer to another great ship the USS Providence. There I met my husband, who was the Chief of Engineering. I've served this great ship now for 30 years. I'm retiring now and trying to enjoy life to it's fullest.

Interests include Holodeck programing, card games of chance, Astro Physics and Stellar Cartography with degrees in the last two.
My father is the offspring of a human father and a vulcan mother and my mother is human. This produced strong agressive emotions in me. I trained on Vulcan in an attempt to curb my violent emotional instincts, and was mostly successful. I completed my first year at the Vulcan Academy of Sciences, but was expelled for streaking thru a prominent lecture as payment of a lost wager in a card game. My Mother's status as ambassador opened the door to Star Fleet Academy, where I went on to graduate with honors, finishing second in my class. The only legacy of my Vulcan heritage being rank emotionalism/romanticism and strong telepathy along with an innate understanding of LOGIC.
After graduation, I was allowed time on Betazed to develop emotional responses to my telepathy, something I was not allowed to pursue on Vulcan. After two years, I was assigned to the U.S.S. Rutledge and served on her for 18 months. I was then transferd to the U.S.S. Providence where I currently serve as acting Science Officer.
I don't have pointed ears, although they do crinkle, and I no longer play poker.
Motto: Love is not always logical.
