CWO Astrid Langford:
Height: 5’ 3 1/2”
Chief Warrant Officer in charge of ship security, weapon systems and second in command of the deep space exploration vessel U.S.S. Wayfarer. She has a very whimsical outlook and always tries to lighten the mood (often times quite inappropriately). She is extremely skilled, dependable, and always getting herself into trouble… The kind of trouble that makes for funny and/or embarrassing stories later on. Cpt. Sladen refers to her as, ”Pure trouble! She’s dependable and will never let you down, but trouble nonetheless. I wouldn’t have her any other way.”
She is an extremely skilled marksman and has mastered multiple martial arts including a few developed by other species. This may be attributed to the many hours she spends in the “Rec Room” and her fascination with the Gene Shift feature. That being said, Astrid wholeheartedly embraces technology and all of the life enriching perks that come with it.
Langford entered service when she turned 18 and quickly advanced through the enlisted ranks, applied for Warrant Officer School with a waiver at age 23, and graduated with honors as the youngest Warrant Officer in the fleet. She came to her current duty assignment shortly after Cpt. Sladen assumed command of the ship. Initially she was assigned as the ship security officer. As she proved herself time and time again she assumed the additional role of Ship Weapons Officer, and First Officer.

Cpt. Clara Sladen:
Commander of the deep space exploration vessel U.S.S. Wayfarer. She has served as Captain of this vessel for eight years. She has always maintained a certain distrust for technology, and only uses it for work and necessities. Clara cares deeply for every member of her crew and has formed an especially deep bond with her second in command CWO Langford.
As the crew prepares the ship for a third four year voyage to explore deep space under her command, she on one hand relishes the adventure and on the other hopes and prays for a safe return of the entire crew complement.
Sladen entered service at age 19, was stationed aboard the U.S.S. Wayfarer. She is a rarity in the Space Fleet in that her entire career has been carried out on one vessel. She has served as Chief of Security, Executive Officer, First Officer and at the age of 37 was promoted to Captain and assumed command.
