The past few weeks I have introduced you to the members of the Kestrel crew.
Unlike in many spaceship stories, the crew is subject to change. Some members leave and new ones come, even during the novel. So I can't just give you a crew list, it depends where in the story you are!
At the beginning of Intruders we find that the Kestrel is two crewmen short, and with no replacements available, the captain takes on a Trainee. To further complicate things, the Trainee is a girl, whereas the rest of the crew are men.
By the time Kestrel is sent on the crucial mission at the heart of the novel, another crewman is injured and one promoted. So there are two temporary new crew found and one of the original crew returns!
It all adds spice to the story.
So, with the above provisos, here is the crew list:Captain Joseph DarrowFirst Officer, Commander Michael Holland, replaced by Nathaniel ParksEngineer, Commander John BlackwellSecond Officer, Lieutenant-Commander Daniel HoyMedical Officer Quentin Robinson, replaced by Matthew KyLieutenant Andrew ChambersLieutenant BalitothEnsign Shom ReuelEnsign Roy StubbsEnsign Sam RyanTrainee Tabitha Enns
