Captain Jean-Luc Picard

Starfleet reveres him as a distinguished leader and negotiator; his crew love him as they would a father, despite a slightly brusque exterior. He wears the Starfleet Command Red uniform.

Deanna Troi

Half Betazoid and half human, counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) of Star Trek: The Next Generation uses her Betazoid empathetic abilities to serve both ship and crew of the USS Enterprise.

As a child she was raised by Sarek, the father of Spock from the original Star Trek series, and her demeanor and posture reflect her Vulcan upbringing.
