Choose Your Ultimate Science Fiction Fantasy Crew

Scenario:  We’ve received a mysterious signal from uncharted space. Earth Command are desperate to know who or what is sending the unnatural and indecipherable messages, so we decide to send a ship. You, as the Captain, are tasked with leading an expedition into deep space; further than any ship has gone before. You must assemble a crew and the below options are available to you. (Template at the bottom to copy and paste your answers. If you think of someone better, you can always add them!)

The Ship Doctor:

You must choose an efficient and adaptable doctor, to fix any broken bones or phaser burns that might occur on your journey. He or she should also learn quickly, as you don’t quite know what you might be up against:

Dr Phlox (Star Trek: Enterprise)

Leonard McCoy (Star Trek: TOS)

Captain Janet Fraiser (Stargate SG1)


Dr. Sherman Cottle (Battlestar Galactica)


Dr Stephen Franklin (Babylon 5)


The Security Chief:

Whilst the threat level of the journey has not yet been determined, you should be prepared for the worst. Who knows what alien species lie in wait in the depths of space. You should choose a strong and able chief of security to ensure that your ship and its crew are able to complete its mission.

Worf (Star Trek: TNG)

Malcolm Reed (Star Trek: Enterprise)

Amos Burton (The Expanse)


Ellen Ripley (Alien)

Teal’C (Stargate SG1)


The Engineer:

The journey may prove treacherous and in the depths of space, you might not have all the tools you need available. You will need a resourceful engineer to mend any damaged parts of your ship, and keep the engine running efficiently.

Galen Tyrol (Battlestar Galactica)

Naomi Nagata (The Expanse)


Kaylee Frye (Firefly)


B’Elanna Torres (Star Trek: Voyager)


Miles O’Brien (Star Trek: DS9)

The Chaplain / Morale Officer / Chef:

The crew will need to be fed and watered, and helped if they come under any undue stress. An officer on the ship should be operating at peak condition, and this role aims to keep everyone fighting fit.

Neelix (Star Trek: Voyager)


Derrial Book (Firefly)


GERTY (Moon)

Drummer (The Expanse)

Quark (Star Trek: DS9)

The Science Officer:

This mission provides an excellent opportunity to further our knowledge of the universe, and a competent science officer always comes in handy; who knows what phenomena we will encounter.

Gaius Baltar (Battlestar Galactica)

Mark Watney (Martian)

Data (Star Trek: TNG)

Daniel Jackson (Stargate SG1)


The Pilot:

A competent pilot is needed to effectively navigate the stars. Whilst the computer might do a great deal of the job, we still need a pilot worth his salt in case manual maneuvers are required.

Han Solo (Star Wars)


Travis Mayweather (Star Trek: Enterprise)

Kara Thrace “Starbuck” (Battlestar Galactica)


Tom Paris (Star Trek: Voyager)


And last but not least, you must choose a ship:

The Ship:

This is not a mission of aggression; but you will still need a ship that can defend itself against attackers if the situation calls for it. It should be fast, strong, comfortable and ready to take on any aggressor.
