Danek is a Trill symbiont who was first implanted over 100 years ago. Its current host, Teral, serves as a Starfleet engineer.




The Danek symbiont has, thanks to its hosts, gained a strong sense of duty and - thanks to the scientific nature of its hosts - a determined attitude, at times to the exclusion of all else. The scientists also gave him a respect for life, so he would kill only as a last resort, or if the situation warranted it.


First Host: Varnel (25 Years As Host)

A young man when first joined, he was a member of the Trill Science Academy, lecturing in biology, especially in xeno-biology. He left at the age of 45 to a dig on a small barren planet in a nearby system to dig on an archaeological site. While unearthing some unidentified bones, the small habitat sphere was breached and he suffered severe damage before he could get to safety. He lived long enough for his symbiont to be passed on to a promising young geologist on the dig.

Second Host: Melissa (43 Years As Host)

A lady of 19, this was her first dig. She was there to help identify any rocks and strata and to make sure their were no geological problems. She retreated from public life for half a year to sort out the symbiont, as she wasn't prepared. After returning to normal life she went to a small colony to work on examining it for expansion. It was here she met the governor of the province, and after a short courtship, was married to him at the age of 21. She then settled down as colony geologist for the rest of her days, dying at the age of 62

Third Host: Kalik (19 Years As Host)

Born on Trill, this adventurous youth was tamed by the introduction of a symbiont at 19. His parents, both engineers with Starfleet, had forced him to attend an engineering college, which he dropped out of to attend the academy. He moved to Sol shortly after his joining and quickly joined Starfleet. Kalik was given a choice between engineering and security, and after thought chose security. He served on several ships, rising to security officer on the USS Rutherford, an older cruiser. It was during a navigational error it entered the Romulan neutral zone and encountered an asteroid field. The ship was crippled, defensive and communications destroyed in the entirety. it drifted back to federation space when an unknown attacker destroyed the ship. Wounded, he managed to escape. Rescued by the USS Geiger, another ship in the task force, he died upon arrival back at Trill, when the symbiont was transferred to Teral.

Fourth Host: Teral (Current Host)

Born on Teresa Prime, a small rural planet near the new Cardassian union. Teral Kolt spent most of his youth working on a agriculture centre on his home world. He repaired farm equipment and the anti-grav loaders. He moved back to Trill when the agriculture centre went broke, joining an engineering school for his secondary education. He decided that if he was going to do anything, he might as well do it well, and so he applied to the symbiont academy. He was surprised when he had to inform his parents he was accepted. And so at the age of 18 he was finally joined to Danek, the memories flooding into his and so, it was with the sense of adventure the symbiont gave him that Teral left Trill to head towards a new life, where his last host had left off. It was time to see how Starfleet was in the engineering field. He joined the academy at 18, majoring in security systems and computer sciences. He also studied the other aspects of engineering. He left at the age of 22 and waited for his first assignment with the fleet.
